My Sheri Crafts #163

It's time to take a break from card-making and on to other crafts.  The newest theme over at My Sheri Crafts is to create any decor project.  Design Team Sister, Sarah, wants to see your decor... so let's show them to her!

A couple of years ago, I made a calendar for My Sheri Crafts #92 for a school themed project.  Since I only used that calendar specifically for school events (and it no longer exists), I decided to make a new one.  This one is a bit more modern to match my craft room... that's where it lives.  It is a magnetic dry erase white board.  I use it for all my monthly events.

Some of you may recognize the ribbon... yes, it's from My Sheri Crafts #91... Yeah ok... so I make a lot of crafts and I don't always use them all or give them away.  They end up somewhere hung up or displayed in my house.  Also, the picture of the girls next to it... yeah, that's like 9 years old but my teenagers don't want any pictures of their current selves displayed anywhere

Above is a picture of September so you can see how clean it looks without all the clutter.  Don't you just love the sleek black wooden frame?

I created all the months and days using SCAL and the font is called Impact.  Below you can see the rest of the months.  I adhered a few of those circle magnets on the back of each so they pop out a little when it's on the board.

The days of the month are from Cricut cartridge: Designer's Calendar and they are mounted on small square strips of printable magnetic sheets because I wanted to keep them as flat as possible

The squares were made from 1/4" Art Tape shown above.  This is not permanent so in the future, I can remove the tape easily and reuse the white board for something else

These were the original magnetic cutouts I made for the first calendar... I'm reusing them, of course!  I will eventually replace them since I don't like them anymore.  Oh and don't look at those little "gym" buttons since those aren't being used and neither are the "park" buttons... we're in the middle of Hurricane Season here so pretty much rains everyday

If you were patient enough to read my entire post of silliness... thank you!

Calendar size: 36" x 24"

Thanks for looking!

Now... it's your turn to create something spectacular and join us over at  My Sheri Crafts


  1. I bet this really comes in handy in your craft room! I have a calendar setting on my crafting table, but this would be far more better! Great idea Raquel! :)

  2. Raquel, I bet this was a godsend when the kids were smaller keeping track of all their groups and clubs and freinds birthdays. I can't survive without mine to this day albeit not so busy now.

  3. What a great idea Raquel! I should do something like this for my craft room! Oh, and I read all of your "silliness"! :-)

  4. What a neat project and so useful! I am sure this looks great in your craft room! Great idea!
