Finished 2011 Calendar

Well I finally finished it. I'm posting the full calendar because I changed a few things on all of the pages before I sent it off to be printed. I think it's really silly that I left January 2011 in there (since I sent it to the printer around 11pm on January 31st! Ha ha!)! But I have a plan to get it done on this this next year!

I plan to complete it throughout the year as the months are completed. So I need to get on creating for January already!

Anyway...here is the calendar. Hope you enjoy!

Cover Page: One thing I love about My Digital Studio is that you have unlimited use to old colors that you can no longer purchase from SU! This page is Melon Mambo (current color) and Kiwi Kiss! Remember that old In Color?!

I also love the ribbon bows! I can never get mine to look that perfect but I don't have to worry about it with MDS! It's always perfect!

January: I love the stamped images that SU provides with MDS. The texture in the background is a stamp! You can change it to whatever color you want, make it lighter, darker...anything! I think it just adds to the depth of the page!

February: Can you believe my baby is going to be 2 this month! WOW! Just 15 more days and we will be having her Abby Cadabby birthday party!

This page is pretty plain...just some DSP, buttons, and a ribbon with a bow!

These pictures were taken at Brooke's 1st birthday party by Jessica Strom. If you are in the Kansas City area, she would love to photograph your child's birthday too!

March: This month marks our 7th anniversary! WOW! I love this picture of us both!

When creating a page in MDS it is VERY EASY to stamp on your pictures! Not so in real life! This stamp on our picture comes from the stamp set, Define Your Life. Love the little definitions for picture embellishments!

April: One of the other great things about MDS is that you get all of the punches and you can size them to any size that you want and make them any color you want without ruining a full piece of cardstock! WOO HOO!

Isn't my little girl cute? These are pictures of her presents from Easter. My family went a little crazy this year!

May: This page was changed a little from it's original form that you can see here. I just felt like the heart got a little lost on the first page. But you can see it now!

June: MDS gives you access to a bunch of kits, just like Simply Scrappin Kits in the catalog. You get papers, border stickers, stamp sets picked out to get with them, and other stickers for embellishing! They all coordinate!

And you can even stitch and staple without the tools needed to do so!

July: With MDS you get a lot of embellishments too! I have glimmer brads, rhinestone jewels, and regular brads all on this page! So fun!

August: Pictures again by Jessica Strom! Isn't she great!

September: Using an old color again. Who misses Really Rust? It goes really well with More Mustard for a great fall look!

Pictures by Jessica Strom again!

October: Another thing I like about MDS is that you can easily copy a layout to use in another project. This is a page that I made for my Mom's 2011 calendar (she gets one every year for Christmas). I love it so much I copied and pasted in my calendar too! So EASY and no extra supplies needed!

November: I love all of the DSP that you get with MDS...and you never run out of it! There's always more! And whenever SU comes out with a great new paper that sells well, they often offer it to MDS users for approx. $4! Love it!

December: You also get the chance to use old papers and kits still when you have MDS. This kit was from a few Christmas' ago but I just LOVE it!

If you are interested in purchasing MDS, you can find it here on my website! The cost is $79.95 USD. With the Sale-a-Bration Special going on right now you would also get to choose a free item! And there just happens to be a MDS CD with all of the SAB stamp sets and papers that you can choose! (That was the first one I got!) Please let me know if you have any questions: demokimsu@yahoo.com.
