Can’t. Wait. To. Get. Crafty. With my brand new Canon PIXMA photo printer!!! And isn’t she gorgeous in that red shade? She’s my favourite machine/device in the house (after my sewing machine). Haha! Hammy and I were so excited to have a photo printer in the house cuz he’s an avid photographer and has fantasised about printing his prized photos out since forever! For me, I reckon the scanning function will greatly help in my making of bag patterns for Beary Naise business. :)
But apart from all that anticipation, I went a little crazy when I found out that Canon has this website where they provide LOTS AND LOTS of printable resources.
The link is: http://cp.c-ij.com/en/index.html
It’s called Canon Creative Park, and from the website, you can download and print a whole lot of things like 3D animals, buildings, and awesome stuff like pretty scrapbooking backgrounds and cartoons. If you’re a scrapbooking fanatic, you ought to get a Canon PIXMA printer and print your own templates and designs! Imagine the endless possibilities!
Here’s what Hammy and I did for our first craft adventure with the Canon PIXMA – a PHOTO CALENDAR which he designed on Adobe Illustrator. The photos are of my awesomely cute cousins and grandparents in Canada and it’s a great gift for them! :) Lucky my uncle is flying over next week so this little DIY calendar will be delivered in safe hands.
- Printed Calendar Cards x 12 months
- Printed Calendar Stand x 1
Hammy made these calendar cards on his own, but there are ready-made ones on the Canon Creative Park as well! (Just check it out here: Calendars)
Next download a printable calendar stand, cut it out, fold it, glue it up, and there you have it – a lovely photo calendar that’s sure to delight :)
