I asked Gozer to be my partner for the IYP 24 Fall Fandango swap because I just knew I needed to make her a monster calendar for 2014.  I was looking for a reason to purchase a Zutter Bind-It-All after seeing some projects created with them, so I bought one and started designing the calendar!  Each day of the week has a different monster, as does the months.  The numbers all have different patterned backgrounds.  I designed them all in Illustrator, saved as jpg files, printed them at the local photo lab, cut them out and voila!  Perpetual Monster Calendar. 

The great thing is now that I spent hours and hours designing the original file, I can print out and bind a bunch of them to give calendars to all of my friends!

Here are a few shots of a few different days.  The little guy for August is definitely my favorite.  He's a little tourist with a camera, fanny pack, and I heart NY hat.  Smiley
