Easy Photo Calendar

I have a little bonus project for you this week! I made a photo calendar for Davis……he begged for one after his mom got one for Christmas. I put it off thinking it would take me forever to make, but then I downloaded the new HP Photo Creations software and whipped this professional looking calendar off in less than 30 minutes. no joke

Doesn’t it look awesome?! I am rather proud of it lol. And it was so easy! I was very pleased. I printed the calendar off on nice HP Photo Paper with my lovely inkjet printer and Davis loves it.

aaaand i’m thinking I need to print another copy for my craft room!

After I printed the calendar out, I simply punched 2 holes in the top with my crop-a-dile and put rings through so Davis could hang it on a board or a wall in his office or just lay it on his desk.

How to Make a Photo Calendar

HP Photo Creations software is user friendly and easy to navigate.

To make this calendar in HP Photo Creations, I used the Print At Home option for Monthly Calendars. Then I uploaded 12 photos, selected the blank white background, applied to all months, and straightened a couple of the rotations the template had on the pictures. And then I hit print and printed off each month with the highest quality print option on my printer with Premium HP Photo Paper. It was magical!

You also have the option to order your photo creations online OR you can print them at home. Very handy. I like having options :)
