Authentique August Desk Calendar Tutorial

Hello, Friends!   It’s time for our Authentique August Desk Calendar Tutorial!  August is always the hottest month of the summer, which makes it perfect beach weather.  The cool corals and beachy blues of the August Calendar Collection make me want to break out my flip flops and beach umbrella.

Like the other desk calendars in this series, this 6×6 easel style folio folds for storage.  This way you can pull out year after year.

Store photo, write down important dates, journal memories and tuck little mementos inside the folio.  Add new family photos each year, or make the folio as a birthday gift for August friends and family.

I have to confess, this folio design is one of my all time favorites.  It is compact, but so much goodness built into the design.  If you are new to this calendar series, you can find oher Authentique Calendar projects HERE.

So without further ado, here is the August Calendar Video Tutorial.  I hope you enjoy!

I’d love to hear what you are doing with this desk calendar design.  Some of you have fabulous ideas for ways that you plan to use the design calendars: Christmas gifts and birthday gifts are both popular uses.  But some of you have taken the basic folio design and used it with other collections for some truly magnificent creations.  I love hearing your ideas, so please share them with me in the comment section below.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

    Oh Kathy, I just love this desk calendar. You know how I like anything having to do with the beach and the ocean. The colors in this calendar are so pleasing to the eye. And what a sweet nostalgic image on the front. And those poppies! How beautiful they are! I am truly enjoying these calendar projects. Thank you for sharing and the video! Hugs!
