I know it is already mid-February but I also know that the beginning of the year can swim by so fast that just now you might be thinking, "I need a cute calendar. It's time to make one for 2013. Something I can throw in my purse (or diaper bag)." So that's what I'm sharing today.

Cute and functional!!!
I created the calendar in Xcel and added a quote on each one. You have the option of embellishing the upper side of every month. I know how paper crafters love that. You can download it from my blog, Frillions by eli.

Instructions
Download and print the calendar pages (it only takes 4 sheets) onto Basis White card stock. It'll be easy to write on and read from...Trim the calendar blocks and months You may want to make a pencil note on each calendar month so you won't lose track after they are cut.

Cut 12 pieces 5-1/2 x 5" (I used Razzleberry, Sour Apple, Blue Raspberry and Grape Jelly).
Adhere the months onto the cut pieces, making sure that the longer side is towards the top for vertical binding or towards the left for horizontal binding.

 
Cut 2 pieces of  Kraft Chipboard to 5-3/4 x 5-1/2" for the covers. Embellish them with patterned paper, chipboard shapes, etc.
Embellish the pages as you wish. I "fussy punched" a whole bunch of scalloped circles and added them to the pages along with blocks of patterned paper.
Bind the calendar. Add ribbons to the coil binding.
