I've been looking for ways to make personalized Christmas gifts inexpensively this year. I had an idea for a desk calendar using a frame that I found at the dollar store. I made 4"x6" print-sized layouts using Meredith Cardall Designs products. I used the bottom of Meredith's Cut-away Calendars as templates for each month, which made the layouts go really quickly. I just added a photo or two where there was space. I had the photos printed during a sale where I got 100 prints for $1 + shipping (I made 8 calendars).
Below are the pictures of each month and the finished project.
