One of the projects that I am doing in 2009 is a monthly calendar. I have designed a calendar layout that fits on a sheet of 8.5" x 11" cardstock, with space at the top of each month for journaling or collaging. Here is my January version.
If you are interested in creating the months along with me, I'll be glad to email you the calendar file each month. You will also need to download a free font called "A.C.M.E. Explosive" for your calendar printout to match mine. Otherwise your version will print in your default font. Email me if you need help or have questions.
