Using Calendar Grid Pages Non-Traditionally

Did you see the NEW 12″ x 12″ Calendar Refill Pages?

These pages are great for documenting your day to day, or month by month.

….or you can use them in non-traditional ways.

Today I will share a few ideas with you, showing you exactly that.  Non-Traditional Calendar Grid Scrapbook Pages.



If you were five years old, wouldn’t you LOVE to do chores if you had a cute chore chart?  Place it on the refrigerator, and after the week is over add it to their scrapbook.  They will love looking back at reminiscing about the chores they HAD to do when they were kids.

Ingredients needed to create Chore Chart:



Play off the grid on the calendar page, cutting squares to fill the grids: 1-1/2″ x 1-1/2″, 1-1/2″ x 3″, and 3″ x 3″.  Once you place your 3″ x 3″ squares on the grid, then use the smaller pieces to fill the rest in.  Cut photos to measure 2-3/4″ x 2-3/4″.  Adhere photos to the tops of each 3″ x 3″ paper square.

Ingredients needed to create photo grid:



Maybe you want to high-light just ONE special day on your calendar grid.  Here I have highlighted the wedding day or Laurie and Christopher, using the grid as guides for the date and photos. Cut several photos into smaller sizes, and sprinkle through your grid to fill in the “holes”.

Ingredients needed to create special day:


Whether you use the calendar grids for traditional or non-traditional uses, you will definitely want to have some on hand.

How do you plan to use these pages?


Happy Creating!
