2012 Family Calendar

I thought I’d share something I’ve done the past few years for our family calendar. Every few years I receive a few promotional code for a Shutterfly Calendar. Love that! Free is always fun! This year a friend had a code to spare and so I got to work putting it together. I was in a bit of a rush (as it was my anniversary and all), so I sped along. This is what I came up with.

This was last year’s:

I have loved having the Primary Monthly themes on our calendar.
1. Since I look at the calendar so much, I remember to try and focus on what the kids are learning in Primary. It sure makes for a quickie FHE idea to go along with Sunday lessons.
2. I put the song for the year on the cover so it’s easily accessible when we are practicing or having a song for FHE or Morning Devotional.

I really love Shutterfly Calendars because the cardstock is very thick and durable. My kids love that I can put their photo on the date of their birthday.

Anyhoo… I thought just in case anyone else was interested in making a 2012 Primary Calendar (with their own family images), I’d share the .jpg images already set in the template for a Shutterfly Calendar (p.s. they have their calendars on ***sale*** right now). You can insert your images into the .jpg downloaded files in Picasa or use a different photo-editing software. I had fun going through all the January photos from various years and selecting my favorites… and so on for each month.

This is what you get in the download:

Zipped Folder of 8.5×11 2012 Primary Posters Calendar Pages
(with a place to insert your own family photos)

Hop on over to Shutterfly and order your calendar before the sale ends!

Old Testament Quiet Book without images

It has been a long time since I’ve created a new quiet book. I know many have been awaiting this Old Testament book. I wish I could share it with the images, but the Church has asked me not to. You can read more about that here. Someday I’ll get around to a few more books including Church History, and oh so many more. For now, enjoy this one!

This is what is included in the download (+ a sample image of my book for ideas of photos to insert).

Download:
Zipped Folder of all 4×6 Old Testament pages

(please note that the zipped folder is very large and may take a while to download)

Now – what can you do with these .jpg files?

You can insert your own photos found in the:
Gospel Picture Art Book (my favorite!)…
Some of the images are only found in the old Gospel Picture Art Kit.

I use Photoshop Elements to create the quiet books & insert the images, but I’m sure there are other photo-editing softwares that you can use to insert the LDS images into your quiet books. A reader shared the idea to use Picasa. It’s a free program and you can now do digital scrapbooking with it. Yay!

This is what mine looks like:

Merry Christmas!
