FCCB # 191-Anything but a card, Holiday Edition

Challenge #191 Anything but a card, Holiday ed.

~This Weeks Sponsor~

Winner will receive the Trim the Tree Cricut Cartridge!
Be sure to visit the blog and join in the challenge. You just need to use 1 Cricut cut to qualify for this week's prize.

This is another project I've been wanting to do for a long time-calendar pages that are ready for the scrapbook once the month is finished! Here is a list of supplies I used:

  1. 12" x 12" frame without glass (glazer point if the frame is backless), 12" x 12" chipboard for backing
  2. One Paper Accents blank plastic 12" x 12" calendar page (or something similar)
  3. One 12" x 12" piece of background paper
  4. One Bistro Chalk Marker, white (or similar chalk, dry erase marker)
  5. Paper for Cricut cuts-the holly paper is unknown, and the green & red are from Creative Memories. Plain white cardstock for the circles.
Choosing paper and the cuts are the hardest! I think that a darker color would let the numbers show through more. The cartridges I used were Designer Calendar (month, Script CF), Plantin Schoolbook (circles), and Christmas Cheer (holly, Blackout CF).

After this was assembled and glued in place, it was placed in the frame with the calender overlay over the month, then backed up with the chipboard.

It's all ready to use!


  1. This is terrific, and a wonderful idea, too, I so want to try scrapping calendar pages!

  2. This is such a great idea! Scrapbooking a calendar page would be a perfect addition to an album!

  3. Love your December calendar!!!
