Clip it Up Calendar

Hi, everyone, Happy Autumn!  For my October post, I'm featuring the Clip It Up Jumbo.  When I was picked for the Simply Renee design team, I decided to organize my scrapbook room, my photos and my life!  Thanks to my Clip it Up items, I am really making progress.

It's a great feeling! I am using the Jumbo Clip it Up to organize my life, month by month.  With this system, I will no longer have piles of mail lying around, missed doctor appointments or lost bills.  Items will be right where I can see them when they are needed.  Let me explain how I made my Jumbo monthly organizer.

First, I went through my stickers and chipboard pieces.  I pulled out a symbol for each month - Jan. snowflake, Feb. heart, etc.

I attached each symbol to one black divider and also used a sticker with the name of each month on the tag.

I used my label maker and printed out family members' names and birthdays.  These were put on the backs of the monthly dividers.

No more forgotten birthdays!! 

I then used numbers (Cinnamon Thickers by American Crafts) at the top of 31 dividers.  These stickers are foam and were really easy to put on.  I bought three packages so I would have enough numbers, 1 through 31.

I put the months on the Jumbo Clip it Up, spacing them so there are 5 on one section of the metal arm, 6 on another section, and the current month and all the number dividers on the third section.

When October ends, I will move that divider behind September and put the November divider in front of number 1.

I am filling my Jumbo Clip it Up with doctor appointments, birthday cards, flyers for upcoming events, recipes, decorating ideas - anything and everything I want right at my fingertips!
