Disclosure: I was provided with this Album Calendar Kit. This post is part of a paid campaign, but all opinions are my own.
It’s that time of year when you have to start thinking about a new calendar for the next year. It is also that time of year when we are all looking for that special gift for that special someone. Today I want to share with you this awesome kit that you can find exclusively at Michael’s for $39.99. The Recollections Calendar Kit. I wasn’t sure what to expect when I learned about this kit, but once it arrived at my door step, I was SO excited! I opened it right up, and started going through it all.
The kit comes as a blank 12 month calendar that has everything you need to customize it and fill it in, including the album, blank calendar pages, dividers, stickers, a pen, 3×4 and 4×6 journaling cards. I am impressed that it includes different cards for each holiday, including Canada Day and Hanukkah.
The page protectors were already in the binder, so I just got to work putting everything else in its place.
I started by adding the month dividers and the month pages. Aren’t all the colors so fun?!
Once I was to that point, I added the 4×6 and 3×4 cards to each month. I loved that they were in order starting with January. It made it so simple to put together. It only took me about 30 minutes, start to finish. I added a few pictures as well.
I went through the calendar and added all the birthdays of our family and friends. I love the little stickers that come with the kit to mark the important days and holidays on the calendar.
I love that this is so personalized, you can look at pictures of your family all year long, but it didn’t take hours to put together. For the November page, I added a family picture that we took last month. One of my favorite parts about this is that the album has a hole in it that lines up with all of the pages, it works like a charm when it is hung on the wall!
When the year comes to an end, you can close up the book and put it on the shelf next to your other photo albums. Not only will you have pictures in there, but memories from the events you attended because they are written on the calendar.
You can find the Calendar Kit for $39.99 at Michael’s. There are enough cards to fill up the photo pocket pages for each month, but I love that you always have the option of adding your own photos too. I mean who wouldn’t want a scrapbook hanging on the wall to enjoy! I can think of so many people that love scrapbooking or the look of a scrapbooked calendar that would love to get this for a gift? How about your mom or grandma, they always enjoy seeing pictures of their kids and grand kids. This is the perfect gift for them. You can put it together and give as a gift or give them some pictures and let them put it together themselves if they enjoy that type of thing. So head in to Michael’s and pick up the Recollections Calendar Kit. That will be one more gift checked off your list, and one step closer to being ready for Christmas.
