I made my first Heidi Swapp calendar last year during a BPS class, A Year To Remember 2007, taught by Heidi Swapp and loved it. I had so much fun doing it, I decided to make another one for this year. I like having documentation of the year's happenings, it comes in handy sometimes. I would also consider making one of these calendars for an expectant mom to document her pregnancy or for the birth of a new baby. If you want to start the calendar with the beginning of a pregnancy and it isn't January, then just cover the area on the calendar where the month is printed with embellishments and use stamps etc. and start with whatever month you want.
I like the clear pages in between the months for layouts. After 12 months, you have a completed scrapbook!
I make a calandar every year for my mom and mother in law and these are far the best! This year I used this brand and it was such a better buy! This is a scrapbook when you are done! It has that months layout - in a plastic sleeve, that months calandar page, underneath that is another plastic sleeve for a matching latout. You could rip out the calandar pages wen you are done (if you wanted to) because the back is blank- not your next months layout like most calandars!
