Mini Calendars

make it monday fall blog hop

Welcome to my site and the Make it Monday blog hop. I hope you have been enjoying these hops on Monday. You should have come to my site from Connie who showed you how to make a faboulous Fall banner. If I am the first person that you are seeing in this hop then you can start at the beginning with Gina who has a tutorial on how to upcyle plastic packaging. You can see the full list of the hop at the bottom of the post as well.

This post is all about how to make mini monthly calendars for your project life/pocket scrapbooking title pages. If you are anything like me you might be tackling project life from a monthly point of view. I have said it before scrapping weekly would drive me insane. My entire album is being done monthly and I am pretty sure that I will have two volumes this year, can you believe how crazy that is. All my photos are currently printed up until September which we just finished and I am almost positive that Shutterfly will have their 101 free prints after Halloween so I am going to wait for that and then print September and October.

I went searching on Pinterest to see what other people had done and everything that I found just seemed way to complicated to duplicate. I got to thinking that there has to be an easier way to make this happen. This is where my iPhone came in to play and I had an aha moment. I was extremly happy with my results and I am able to make tiny little calendards directly from my phone and print them on my Selphy and have a title card in five minutes or less.

Here is the video sharing with you how to make this happen for your own project life albums. For those of you that would like a monthly calendar but would like to highlight which week you are scrapping on the calendar you can do that to. I share all these steps in the video below.

Here is the complete list of apps that I used the tutorial to make these calendars.

1. Phonto

2. A Beautiful Mess

3. Square Sized

4. Project Life

Here is what the 3.5×3.5 calendar looks on a project life card. I haven’t printed my October one yet because I am waiting to see what deals Shutterfly is going to have for me. Namely my free 101 prints!

Now that you have learned how to make these cute little calendars for project life/pocket scrapbooking will you give it a try? And once you have tried it you will need a place to store the title cards that you have made! This is where the Close To My Heart medium organizer comes into play. I have placed all my project life cards in one sorted by color and I swear this is the best thing I have ever done. I scrap by color but the same theory would work if you wanted to organize your stash of cards by theme. You can purchase these awesome organizers HERE and you can click HERE to see how I have organized my cards.

    This was great. I hadn’t heard of Phonto yet so I learned about a new app. YAY!

    Beth, that is so clever! I am not very good about using most apps. Even if I download them, they just sit in my phone. It is so helpful to see somebody using the apps!

      Kristie I am an app hoarder I have way to many apps and I don’t use all of them and I generally grow attached to them and refuse to get rid of them!

    Cute idea. I have an android phone, so most of these don’t work there…
    Love how you sorted the PL cards!!

    1. Beth

      Awwww Libby I would think that you could still screen shot your calendar on your android phone as well as use an app to then shrink the calendar. I am going to look into this for you.
