I was asked about a Birthday Calendar from a friend of mine and was super excited to make one for her! I have one that Stampin’ Up sold many years ago. IT IS AMAZING!!! A Birthday Calendar has all the dates for each month listed on each page. You will just put the name of the person on the date of their month on the correct month – August 29th – Laura Borchert!!! 🙂 The awesome thing about this calendar is that you can use the same one each year unlike a traditional calendar that has the days of the week on it since those change!!!
I created a Template in Microsoft Word but just adding numbers and lines, 2 columns per page. You can check it out here – Birthday Calendar Template! You will need to print 6 of these! You will then cut the Whisper White cardstock in half at 4-1/4″ and punch a hole in the upper left corner with the 1/8″ Handheld Punch! To get them all in the same spot, I punched 3 or so all together, then I took one of those and laid it on 3 others to use as a template of where to punch the next set. To put them all together, I just used a metal ring but first we have to decorate!!!
I used the Perpetual Birthday Calendar Stamp Set for all of the months and decorations! I used the banner from the Thoughtful Banners Stamp Set. I used the coordinating Duet Banner Punch to punch them out (Bundle & Save 10%). I used Pacific Point for January, Real Red for February, and Pumpkin Pie for March!
I used Emerald Envy for April, Wisteria Wonder for May, and Crushed Curry for June! Each of the images can be mixed and match to whatever you wish to use for that month!
For July I did the banner in Real Red and the stars in Night of Navy Ink. Of course I had to do Melon Mambo flowers for August because that’s my birthday month!!! September was done in Mint Macaron.
October was done in Cajun Craze Ink. November was done in Cherry Cobbler Ink and December was done in Cherry Cobbler Ink and Garden Green Ink.
It’s so much fun to just randomly stamp all over in different patterns! So colorful and cheerful for all year long! Now all you need to do is add in the names of all of your loved ones!!!
You should totally try this out or even make them for your friends and family. They are a great gift!! Let me know if you have a Birthday Calendar in the comments below!
