Photo Calendars as the Perfect Holiday Gifts
Hi Fellow Scrapbooker,
I was working on my own families 2016 photo calendars today when it hit me, this is the only gift that I have ever given over and over again. I don’t do it because it’s simple or because I don’t have to go to the store and shop the crowds; although that’s nice! I give them to both my side and my hubby’s side of the family each year for Christmas because they start asking me for them months in advance. It’s the one gift that the entire family, especially my mother in law, looks forward to each and every year.
I think they would disown me if I missed a year!
It all started 4 years ago. I did it for my brother and sisters and my husband’s sister and parents. Everyone showed the rest of the family and before I knew it, I had been tasked with creating 4 more for my aunt, my parents, my cousin and hubby’s aunt. Now, it’s the only gift I do each year.
Now, everyone in the family starts sending me their summer and fall photos the end of September so that they can have their new personalized photo calendars for Christmas. It’s so popular in fact; I’ve had to elist my sister-in-law’s help so we can get them all done.
It really doesn’t take too long to do the custom family calendars, as I put all of one side of the families’ birthdays and anniversaries on one set of templates, then make another copy with the other side of the families’ dates. It takes the majority of time in gathering all the photos for each side.
The next step is to create about half the calendar with photos from family events and gatherings that work for the whole family. The other half of the photo calendar pages get custom images of the family the calendar is for on them. Nothing hard, just takes a little time.
The hardest part for me is in creating the yearly calendar templates, something that you don’t have to worry about as I’ve already done that for you.
Since the templates have all the graphics and formatting done in advance, it takes me less than 5 minutes per page to paste the photos behind the transparent openings and to add my journaling text to each page. Like I said before, the only time consuming part is gathering all the photos and placing them into separate directories on the computer for each person.
It really is so easy to do and yet it makes such a beautiful personal holiday gift. You just print them yourselves or, as I’ve created the templates to fit on any standard 8.5×11 photo paper, card stock or presentation paper; it’s easy to have them printed for you and even bound if you like. Just put them on your thumb drive (USB drive) or on a photo CD and have them printed at any photo lab or office supply printer.
It really is the perfect gift for Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanza or any other holiday or birthday event. I’ve even made them for baby shower gifts using mom’s pregnancy photos and first photos of the baby after they are born. It becomes the perfect treasured keepsake.
All the common holidays are there for you and you can insert text to add any other anniversary, birthday or event on the dates you want. I know that not everyone celebrates certain holidays, so I’ve even created alternate templates for those holidays such as Christmas/Hanukkah and Spring/Easter or Fall/Halloween. Make your calendar your way!
The perfect holiday gift and plenty of time to download them and get them done in time for your holiday gift giving. Look for the new years templates in Late September each year.
