2011 Calendar Designs, Part 4

Welcome to part four of my 2011 calendar design roundup! I have so many great designs to share with you today, and if you’ve missed the previous posts, then you can find even more wonderful 2011 calendars in parts one, two, and three.

I’m loving this sweet four season letterpress calendar by Yun Chung, who was inspired by a cat who often wanders near her house. One day, she went outside, and the cat was hiding next to a fence and watching her. Near him was a broken umbrella, and Yun started wondering what the cat might do with the umbrella when no one is looking. This calendar is the result of that wondering.

Lark Press’ 2011 letterpress calendar is beautiful … and educational, too! Each month features something different – poetry, types of pollination, a peach cobbler recipe – I know that I’d be looking forward to turning the pages on this calendar to see what I would learn next. I love the blind debossing on the cover, too:

I really like Amy Marcella’s calendar, not just because it features her beautiful floral illustrations, but also because there’s plenty of space to write in appointments, birthdays, notes, etc. I know that some of you will appreciate this!

A few of you have been asking about when I’m going to start featuring holiday cards, and today is the day. I know it’s a little early, but I’m excited to get started, and I hope that you are, too!

If you’re signed up for the monthly Paper Goodies Newsletter, then you got a little sneak peek at my top ten early season favorites yesterday, and those favorites include designs from the new collection of holiday goodies from Rifle Paper Co. Anna Bond’s illustrations are just so sweet and unique, and I don’t have to tell you that I’m loving every one of her new holiday cards, postcards, and invitations. I also like that she went with more traditional Christmas themes in many of the new designs, which features angels on high, the twelve days of Christmas, Santa Claus, a nativity scene, and a gorgeous Hanukkah menorah.
