Q's Creative Class: Birthday Calendar Album

My New Year's resolution for 2010? Remember birthdays!

Please add appropriate shipping from drop-down menu. You do not have to add shipping for additional kits.


Birthday Calendar Album Kit




I love birthdays! I think it's a great way to celebrate some ONE. That's right, just ONE person, all day long. I get the major-guilts if I let one slip through the cracks (yes, you know who you are!), so this year, I've created this adorable Birthday Calendar Album to help me remember birthdays for all my friends and family.

I loved making this album, but I have to say, it just came to life when I started cropping and mounting photos of all my dear ones inside the pages. Now, with just a turn of the page, I can see everyone who has a birthday that month. Inside the pocket (for each month) is a calendar for room to record important information about each birthday (gift ideas, special birthdays, lunch? etc...) plus there is room for birthday cards for the uber-organized!

This is a 6" x 10" chipboard album, bound with coordinating fabric. There are many great little paper-crafting techniques you'll learn with this class, plus you'll leave with a special keepsake you'll have for years. Makes a great gift for Mom, Grandma...or yourself!

Sue, Great idea on the birthday calendar albums. I signed up for the class in Centerville on Jan. 6, but the store wasn't sure of that date. I ordered two kits, I'm from out of town, wasn't sure you will ship to my home or give them to me on the 6th? Please let me know as I will only be there a few days.

Sue, great idea on the birthday calendar albums. I signed up for two kits/class on Jan 6th at Centerville, at Roberts, but the store wasn't sure of the date. I'm from out of town, wasn't sure if they will just be shipped to my address, or I pick them up on Wed. I'll only be there a couple of days. Thanks a bunch Tammy
