To be real, this could be done with index cards, a simple word processing software, minimal scissor skills, and some ink, but if I have a machine that will cut things, I'm going to use it.
I always have to search for the date. Sure, I could just look at the bottom right hand corner of my computer screen, but that's just not pretty. So, I found an online calendar for 2013, downloaded it in Excel, and reformatted it to make this cute little easel calendar. I got to play with fonts and use initials and other fun abbreviations for holidays and events too!
Once the calendar was complete, I printed it on cardstock and then cut the shape on the Silhouette. I hit the edges with a paper towel run across and ink pad, set them in the easel, and viola! A cute, customized way to know what day it is!
