Minted Calendars: Clean Designs, Simple to Make.

Minted Brand Badge

Have you been to Minted? Like the chic name suggests, offers gorgeous print products including cards, journals, and calendars with sophisticated, clean and modern designs.  I have been a photo-gift-making-machine-woman the past few weeks trying to get a special gift for family.  The biggest challenge was organizing the thousands of photos I’ve taken over the past year (because it takes about 25 shots of a moving toddler to get one that is great!).  I use Aperture to organize photos but this will work in iPhoto as well: I used keywords to organize each project (book for grandparent, calendar for friend, etc.) and then created a “smart album” so they all magically appeared in one place.

To create this calendar, I saved a folder on my desktop.

I loved all of the calendar designs and chose this one:

Minted Calendar

I love the rounded edges and simple design.  The best part about making this calendar?  There aren’t a million different options: you add the photos and go on your merry way.  There aren’t 65 backgrounds or embellishments to muddle the process – it’s all very clean and simple.  You do have the ability to add dates, etc. to the actual calendar but I prefer to handwrite those special dates in a calendar so I just added photos.

I cannot wait to receive it! If the quality of the calendar is anything like the quality of Minteds’s cards, I will not be disappointed.

Disclosure: Minted gave me the opportunity to make a calendar but all opinions expressed are all my own.
