Welcome to Day 3 of A Muse Calendar Inspiration. Today's calendars were designed by Heather, Meghan and Michelle C. and I can't wait to share them with you!
Today's showcase will begin with a colorful 4" x 6" calendar, designed by Heather. Here are a few words from Heather on the inspiration behind her calendar:
"As I read how Charley's family and friends remembered her on the "Charley's Fund" Facebook page, color seemed to be a recurring theme: in the bright balloons they gathered to release in her memory, her favorite colors, and even as they recalled her vibrant personality. This year my calendar design is inspired by Charley and her love of color."
The A Muse 4" x 6" Calendar fits beautifully into this nifty calendar case. Wouldn't this calendar sitting on your desk brighten your day?
I love how Heather has repeated many of the images throughouther calendar pages.

Our next Calendar project showcases the 4" square version and was designed by Michelle C.
Michelle no longer uses a paper calendar, she's all digital! However, she has found a clever way to incorporate the A Muse Calendar pages into her scrapbook pages. Michelle writes:
"I wanted to show the versatility of the A Muse calendars. Using the square calendar, I was able to easily create a 4-square layout that can be used for a monthly scrapbook page.You can create pages ahead of time, like I did for October, and just add pictures when you get them. You are guaranteed to have at least one scrapbook page per month."

Our last Calendar project for today features the A2 format, designed by Meghan. I am always looking for new ways to assemble my calendar projects and I am excited to try this clever solution by Meghan!
Let's have a look:
Meghan shares with us how she put together her calendar:
"The A2 calendar pages are mounted on black cardstock, then perforated with the Scor-Bug 0.5 inches from the top (it's best to go back and forth a few times for extra perforations because there are two layers). The top of the calendar pages were punched with the Crop-a-dile and then taped together with Scor-tape above the holes so you can easily tear away the pages one month at a time. The ribbon is threaded through the back of the calendar out through the lip of the matchbook and tied in a bow.The calendart stands up nicely on its own, but as pages are torn away it can be propped up on an easel or even in a cd jewel case."
