A Muse Calendar

Have you seen the new 2009 A Muse Calendars that Linda has available on the A Muse News Blog??? My good friend Victoria is being honored through the sales of the calendars this year! All proceeds raised for the calendars are going to The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society an organization that Victoria got to pick which is dear to her heart because she was diagnosed with Hodgkins Lymphoma earlier this year.

I got to play around a bit with the calendar and use my Bind-it-All machine that I bought earlier this year and had never used!!! Here's what I made:


















































































Victoria and I were working on calendars together one day and she showed me a calender she made a while back that she had a template for, to make these cool stands for flip calendars. I didn't have her template, but I got the idea from hers and made my own version. I put a piece of window sheet on the front of the calendar so it's protected and has some sort of cover. I also added a little bit of Stardust glitter pen to each page to give it some sparkle and unity throughout the pages. The "2009" numbers were stamped with A Muse's Birthday Builder clear set.

I realized after I bound it all together that I should've taken pictures of the pages before doing that so I could combine them, but I just made a little extra work for myself having to take pics of each page and uploading so many pictures!!

I hope you like the calendars and are inspired to get your own version and help support this wonderful cause!! There are 3 different versions of the calendar available for purchase through donation and 3 different donation levels for you to choose from!! So fun to have choices!! What a great opportunity Linda has given us to help support those in need!!!

Hugs and blessings to you all!

I love how your calendar turned out, Rhonda! It is fabulous, just like you! :-) Remind me to give you the calendar template in case you want to try it later on. I've been meaning to ask you to show me how that Bind it All works. Just when I thought I was done with my calendars for the year, I realized there are two more people from work I want to thank for their support, so I'm making two more!

You did a wonderful job on the calender! Thanks for showing how you stand your calender up. This is a great excuse for me to break out my never used BIA:) TFS: Tinla
