Doodlebug Magnetic Wall Calendar

Hi friends! Today, I'm sharing my Doodlebug Calendar Challenge project with you. I've been needing a visual reminder of due dates and to do lists on the wall near my desk. So, when I learned about this design team challenge, I was excited to create a large magnetic calendar for my room. 

To make this, I adhered 5 sheets of 12x12 Daily Doodles calendar paper and 1 sheet of Lots of Love double-sided cardstock to the front of a 24"x36" magnetic board purchased from an office supply store. I started out with 6 calendar sheets, but then decided to add the cute print for lists. (Product links below.)

I made custom labels for each of my lists and matted them on the Petite Prints Linen and Gingham in Stone Gray. Then, I glued them directly onto the 12x12 print at the top of each section.
Although I wanted my calendar to have glass on the front, I quickly realized that the magnets wouldn't work through glass, so I moved on to 12x12 sheets of clear acetate (link below). Before adhering my acetate over the calendar pages, I added a few stickers that I wanted permanently under the plastic. Then, using tiny glue dots in each corner, I attached the 6 sheets of acetate over each calendar and the list sheet. 

I used the Daily Doodles month stickers (link below) to create magnetic labels for each page. I added a piece of heavy magnetic tape to the back of each so they can be changed out as needed.

I added more magnetic tape to some die cuts and stickers from the Spring Things and Cream and Sugar collections but ... you could use ANY collection. They look so cute decorating the different spaces.

I used a black dry erase marker to add the dates, events, and all my notes and reminders in the bottom section. These can easily be wiped off and updated!

To finish it off, I added glitter sprinkles on top of the acetate to dress up my list labels. Then, I used some pretty blue washi tape around the edge of the frame.

Keep in mind ... you can use ANY collection for this project. Have fun with it and mix and match die cuts, prints, and stickers depending on the month or season.  

I hope I've inspired you with some creative and wonderful Doodlebug products. Have a great day!
