Authentique July Desk Calendar Tutorial

Authentique July Desk Calendar Tutorial

Hello, Friends!  It hardly seems possible, but it’s time to share my Authentique July Desk Calendar Tutorial with you.  This year is really flying by, isn’t it?   If you’re new to the blog, I’ve been sharing a monthly desk calendar made with the Authentique Calendar Collection.  These 6×6 easel style calendars double as a mini folio to hold photos and memories from each month of the year.  Many of you have told me that your are giving these as birthday cards.  I think that is a brilliant idea!

The easel design of each calendar allows it to fold flat for storage.  My hope is that you will pull these out year after year, perhaps adding a new photo or memory as time goes by.

This month I’ve added lots of stars, glitter clothespins and patriotic plaid ribbon to enhance the gorgeous vintage images and patterns.

You’ll find all the usual bells and whistles inside the folio: a July calendar for recording special dates, wallet sized folios, photo  mounts, journaling spots and a nifty hidden pocket folio.

    Perfect images for July. The decorated bicycle reminds me of a bike I helped my sister decorate for a parade.

    Kathy, I think this might be my favorite desk calendar so far. Of course I think that every time you make a new one. LOL At the end of the year I would be hard pressed to pick a favorite. This July calendar is magnificent! Of course the red, white and blue papers are beautiful. I absolutely LOVE the image of the girl holding the patriotic lantern. It’s just very heartwarming. Once again you have done a perfect job with this project. Thank you for sharing! Hugs!

    Another great Authentic calendar design, Kathy. As always, your video tutorial is so helpful. I’ve got all of the papers but haven’t started this calendar Christmas gift set yet. Just realized I’ll need to create two each month to be ready! (lol) Now to get started…tfs-stay well. Hugs.
