Shabby Chic Calendar


The best projects to create are both pretty and functional. Calendars can totally be both! And why not? You’re going to be looking at it all year right? I made this calendar thinking that it could be left out on a desk.

IMG_0646These great little calendar cards are blank…so my calendar is ready to start whenever I’m ready to fill it in.

IMG_0648The tattered book pages give it fabulous texture and the tabbed dividers will make it super handy to flip right to the month I need : )

I hope you have a happy and productive day and find some time to be creative : ) G

  1. This books is so enchanting – absolutely delightful and so very very French. You have surpassed yourself Ginny. But then I do believe I have said that before. I keep thinking THIS is the best yet, and then wonderful creation appears. Have a wonderful week-end my friend. V.

  2. How sweet! A dainty yet practical spot for all those notes and reminders. I love the little pockets with the tags tucked in under the pages. A lovely design!
    Thank you for sharing such lovely inspiration! 🙂

  3. Polly, Have you used Really Reasonable Ribbon’s velvet ribbon? I want to be sure it’s really beautiful and easy to work with.
