Quick Christmas Gift Ideas

Are you looking for some quick ideas to give as gifts?
NiceCrane Designs has some wonderful calendar templates that can be altered or printed as they come.There is actually a package deal you can purchase.
Check out the fun post Ignacio shared using my calendar
 This is the calendar printed out just as I received the file.
 On these designs I added the year in the middle section-you could also add a picture there.

 I used glitter and glittered ribbon to decorate each of these

I just had to crease and tape-Ta da! how easy is that?
 This is my
K Greenway calendar all put together and inked-distressed
Check out the post On NiceCrane Designs Blog where he shared my calendar.
 How about a view of a couple of the pages? I used twine and ribbons from Really Reasonable Ribbon
I had those fun embellishments in my stash

 Can you see how I cut and matted each of the pages, then inked and distressed. All I had to do was attach them to tags I altered. I had so many of these chipboard hearts and was so happy I could use them.
So what do you think about these calendars and how quick you can alter them or print just as they are.
Stop over to NiceCrane Designs-let Ignacio know I sent you.
