Place In Time - August Calendar

Happy Monday crafty peeps!

It's my day to host the blog over at ScrapTownLady today. I have the Graphic 45 "Place In Time" collection's August calendar to share with you. The French Country collection was also mixed in as well.

That's the beauty of Graphic 45, the colors and collections blend nicely together and you can really use them interchangeably.

"August 2013"

I've used a variety of pretty dies to create the August calendar:
I thought it would be fun to re-use a tag from their packaging on here too.

The Trellis, Hummingbird and Sunflower are Cheery Lynn Designs:

When I think of the dog days of summer, they are also the last chance to get out and enjoy the nice weather.  I loved the sentiment strip "In the Good Old Summertime...", so I used it as part of my anchor on the bottom of the page.  Don't you just love how the Fiona's Magic Mirror by Cheery Lynn Designs perfectly mats to the mini calendar?  

If you're wondering how I get the numbers on the calendar, I created a Microsoft Word template and do it there, then I tape my calendar on top of it, and print right on the mini calendar.  I do make sure to line it up perfectly by looking through a window with the calendar layered on top. 

If you would like a copy of it, I am happy to share it with you.  You can customize the colors to coordinate nicely with your calendar too.
