I first started scrap booking and preserving photos back in high school, gosh that feels like a gazillion years ago to say.  I love flipping through my books and reminiscing about school friends, sorority functions, wedding memories and my babies. Unfortunately, after I had kids I sorta dropped the ball when it came to journaling and preserving those sweet little moments in my scrapbooks.  That is why I absolutely love the new Recollection Calendar Kit from Michael’s!

This 12 month blank wall calendar is a great way to quickly record memorable moments, keep track of family events and display your favorite photographs throughout the year.  You don’t have to be overwhelmed about creating a beautiful layout with tons of photos and supplies. The kit comes with everything you need including an album, blank calendar pages, stickers and 3×4 and 4×6 designer insert cards to preserve your memories throughout the year.

You can customize each month’s plastic photo pocket pages, jot down funny or memorable moments with your kids that month on the designer 3×4 and 4×6 cards.  You can even add your favorite photos, it’s perfect for creating monthly themed scrapbook pages you can enjoy year round.  I even broke out some of my neglected scrapbook supplies and spiffed up my photo with a few embellishments.

I love the simplicity of being able to use the calendar to not only keep track of our busy schedules, but also preserve the memories we are making as a family.  My kids are always asking me things like “When did I lose my first tooth” or “Do you remember that day when we did _____?”  Now I can jot those things down and we will have a nifty little scrapbook we can enjoy at the end of the year.

And bonus, keep the box and you can store a few scrapbook supplies like washi tape, mini clothes pins, and stickers to add your own personal touch to your page layouts.  Throw in family mementos like ticket stubs, trinkets from vacation and important awards and store it all together to enjoy for many years to come.

The Michael’s Recollections Calendar Kit is available exclusively at Michael’s stores for $39.99.  This is an awesome gift idea for moms or grandmothers…I know a few lucky ladies on my Christmas list that will find this under their tree this year!  I also think this would be the perfect gift for new moms, just think about all the “firsts” that they could easily document and record without feeling stressed or overwhelmed to complete some fancy scrapbook.

I have piles of pictures and hundreds of dollars in scrapbook supplies just collecting dust, and maybe one day I’ll get to them.  But in the mean time I’m going to record those funny things my kids say, the pictures that melt my heart and family adventures with the Michael’s Recollection Calendar Kit!

  2. Oh wow, it’s sort of like a ‘baby book’ but for family events. I love this concept.

  3. I LOVE the idea of giving this to a new mom! I also love the idea of giving this to ME – my scrapbook-loving heart loves this.
