Pregnancy Calendar with Doodlebug Design

It's been many years since I was pregnant with our boys but I remember that I kept pregnancy calendars for each one of them.  I started them the month I learned I was pregnant and then recorded important dates and memories each month until they were born.  It was a fun way to document my pregnancies, so I thought I would create a similar project to share with you today!  This would make a cute gift for a new mom-to-be or a perfect place to save your own precious memories!
The Daily Doodles sheets and stickers are perfect for this project!
I created the top border by adhering a 2" strip of Bundle of Joy pattern paper across the top.  I added the month stickers and some Odds and Ends to finish the top of each page.

Adding embellishments to the squares was the really fun part!  I used Mini Icon stickers, Sunshine number stickers and some printed journaling spots but you could easily handwrite the important dates and appointments.

I also used paper from the 6x6 paper pad.  They add fun spots of pattern to the calendar pages and would also make cute mats for some small photos!

 
The shape sprinkles added a little shine and dimension to the pages ... that little bear is so stinkin' cute!! Oh, and play with Doodle stamps on the pages too!  I stamped a few phrases like "baby shower" and "cute as a button", and you could also use the calendar stamps to add the days of the month!

So if you know someone who's expecting, consider making her a special keepsake that she'll cherish throughout her 9 month journey.  Then once baby is born she can slip the calendar pages into a 12x12 album to cherish for years to come!  And don't forget, if you prefer blue to pink, the Special Delivery Collection has you covered with cuteness too!
