Freebie Friday - Calendars

I've been learning how to make my digital cutter files available in different file formats, so I can share  them with you! Each Friday, I will post a link for a free file for your digital cutter! Downloads will be available for two weeks and are for personal use only. Link is at the bottom of the post. Here is this week's freebie. Enjoy!

Here is the project I made

As always, if you have any problems with the files, please let me know (this is still a learning process for me). I've included .jpg, .png, .svg. .ai, .eps, .dxf, .gsd and .studio in the zip file. Just click to download.

Oversized Dry Erase/Magnetic Calendar

It seems like one of the most popular new year's resolutions is to become more organized, I know it is usually one of mine. Having a good calendar is one step to becoming more organized. I made this calendar a few years ago, but I still love it and it is something we still use all the time.  So, I thought I would post it again and create a couple different calendars for this week's free file.

Any project that helps me be more organized is a good thing and this calendar is one of my favorites. I used to have a smaller one, but I wanted more room on the side to hang notes, invitations, and other reminders. Plus, the other one was just white and boring. I wanted something bigger, cuter, and more colorful.
I picked up this giant magnetic board from Roberts. It's about 40" x 54" and with my 40% off coupon, I think it was somewhere around $35.00. I started by taping off the magnet board around the wood border.
Then I painted the wood frame brown.
 I searched the scrapbook store 'til I found the perfect selection of coordinating scrapbook paper. I cut it into 3" strips (the same width as the frame).
Then, I laid the paper on the frame in a pattern I liked. I decided I wanted the papers to be different lengths, so I cut some short and left others long.
After I had arranged the papers the way I wanted them, I glued them to the frame with ModPodge. I also applied a layer on top to seal them.
I wanted to add some embellishments, so I cut small strips of dark brown ric-rac to cover the seams between the papers.
 I used hot glue to adhere them to the frame. So cute!
 Then, I applied the calendar frame I cut on my vinyl machine. Each month, I also cut the name of the month from cardstock and stick it on with spray adhesive.

I use these dry erase markers to fill up our calendar.  They wipe off easily with a dry paper towel. Can I just say how much I love them! They are so much nicer to use than those that have lids.

Freebie Friday - Best of 2014

This week, I shared my top 10 projects from 2014. And, since many of you are new and may have missed the downloads, I thought it would be great to share the digital files again. So, here are the files I used to create my best projects of 2014!

As always, if you have any problems with the files, please let me know. I've included .jpg, .png, .svg. .ai, .eps, .dxf, .gsd and .studio in the zip file. Just click the button to download. Downloads will expire in 2 weeks.

Best of 2014

One of my favorite things to do each new year is to look back at all the projects I've made during the past year.  It's so easy to forget what projects I've created, so it's really fun to go back look at them again. Today, I wanted to share with you my top 10 projects of 2014.

Faux Etched Candle Holders

As a bonus, for this week's Freebie Friday, I'll be sharing the digital files I used for each of these projects! So, if you missed them the first time, you'll have one more chance to get them for free!

Thanks everyone for a wonderful year.  I hope 2015 is just as good!
