The Overall Idea is great, but once you add pages and photos the calendar get very HEAVY. Filling in all of the days took a lot longer than I expected as well. There are no months or days pre-filled and it does not come with a calender for any year, a small one page of all 12 mths would have saved me from having to look them up online, would have made my review a 4 instead of a 3. Otherwise page space is ample and days are large enough to write important things, I probably would research others if I wanted to buy again.
I make my own wall calendar every year and love this one. It is great quality, holds up all year long, and is easy to decorate. I put 2" strips of patterned paper top & bottom (a different one each month), cut names of the months out with a die cut machine or Coluzzle and stamp (or write) the numbers. I add a narrow strip of cardstock with the days of the week stamped or written on it. At the end of the year, I cut them to 12x12 size and make a companion layout using the same PP and photos highlighting that month. Of course you could add ribbon, flowers, etc. but it looks great just with the PP.
I have made 3 so far and some of my friends followed making a few themselves. People at work come into my office to see what i did for each month. Gave some to my parents for christmas and they loved it and are keeping them after the year is over as an album. I will be making more using this product as it survives trips to classes everyweeks when i make them.
Perfect to create a year of memories. I love creating a year of precious memories. At the end of the year I will take the pages apart and put them in an album. It will be fun for the kids to look back at previous years.
