Today I really want to give a shout-out to all the hard-working Christmas in July (CIJ) calendar challenge participants! Over the course of the last 3 weeks they have created – you won’t believe it –  over 700 calendar layouts! WOOOT!

It’s just amazing. As a Designer, I thoroughly enjoy seeing my calendar templates come to life through the creativity of the people who use them. It’s wonderful to see the how diverse the results are – all starting from the same templates. This year we had calendars featuring travel photos, family pictures, genealogy, the beach, aromatherapy recipes, birds, bicycles, the beach, art journaling, dogs, butterflies, flowers, haikus, inspirational quotes… I’m running out of room to name them all.

Let me just show you a small portion of all the awesome layouts that have been created – if you want to see more, have a look around the CIJ gallery.
