Calendars - MDS Blog Hop Week 14

So this week's challenge was Calendars. I had this one already in the works so I used what had to complete this week's Blog Hop.  I ad an idea for another project using the Calendar Design Center but ran out of time.  Save that for a rainy day.
I took my desktop calendar from the MDS retreat (cased by Holly Linford from and Convention 2011) and turned it into a jewel case calendar. First I added the hybrid elements in digital to my project and exported each of the monthly fronts only to JPEG. I then added the JPEGs as photo boxes into a 12x12 page.  I filled the background page in with Sahara Sand so that I could cut them out perfectly.  I got them printed thru Stampin Up as individual pages. Enough to make four to eight of these at one time. Just add a duplicate page of each page on your project but only do the cover page once or twice. 

The print quality thru SU is outstanding! I highly recommend it!
I put the monthly slips in order in my clear DVD/CD case. This are the ones that fold back all the way and have that little tray at the bottom.  I got mine from a bulk buying offer.  Added some Early Espresso 1/8" Taffeta Ribbon for a finished look and done! 
I think this would make great gifts for Christmas!
Do not forget to go to MDS.NET and get your free downloads available only this weekend! Nov 4-7th! Check out all the great samples and blog posts too!

Now move on to more MDS designers and their Calendar projects!
