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

Thank you and you're welcome, MistressT.
I have all sorts of ideas for using the Bind-It-All, but I haven't gotten around to any of them but this.
The best thing about a calendar like this is that you can use this year after year and every day has a different combination!

This is such a cute idea for a calendar you can use year after year! I don't have a book binder but I may have to get one. This would be perfect for my desk at work!!

I never even thought of that!  Pretty cool indeed.  I love my artwork.  I make sure to show everyone that comes in my house in case they miss it on the wall. Smiley
