Pocket Planners

I always make my sisters and my mom new calendars to give them with their Christmas gifts.  I have made them with different themes before based on their favorite sports teams, animals, etc.  This year, I decided just to do basic calendars with their initials on them.  I started out by getting some of the pocket planner calendars from Target.  I used a tape runner and some scrapbook paper to cut and fit around the calendars to cover them.  I then used the Sentimentals Cricut Cartridge to make scalloped circles for the center of the calendars.  The initials were cut using black vinyl from the Storybook Cricut Cartridge.  I then just put them back into their plastic covers to finish them up.
