Calendar 2014 in Victorian Paper Frame – free printable

The Victorian Paper Frames I posted yesterday are great for a pretty vintage style Calendar 2014:

Cabinet cards were used up until about the turn of the century, when photography developed into what we have today, pictures on thin (yet special types of) paper. The paper frames were still common to display pictures, and I can’t tell for certain that these frames were used for cabinet cards, since I don’t know the measurements of the original, but they look very much alike other stuff I have seen from that era, thus I choose to believe they are from the 17th century, which makes the original Victorian.

I have revamped the paper frame with my replaceable label, and the variations of color. The fonts I used are also modern, yet copying the fabulous typography of long gone times. So I’d say this is a vintage display with a modern twist 😉 I could not resist doing a few color choices in candy colors as well… Personally I will not use the candy colors, but I plan to gift them to friends that are not into vintage as much as I am…;-)

If you gift someone a French Cherub in one of these frames (as posted yesterday) for Christmas, you can include the printable calendar sheets, or precut the 12 months and seasonal labels and tuck them in an envelope, thus this becomes a gift that lasts all year 😀 Cheap, easy and very practical, yet something unique that can not be found in the stores 😀

    1. Dear Curtis 🙂

      I had almost forgotten about these…lol Yes I can make a 2015 version, but I will most probably have to do it during the Christmas Days. Will that be too late for you? xoxoxo

      1. Nope! Take you time………I was just getting worried that my 2014 calender was running out of time before 2015 and didn’t know what to do!! Now I can rest assured……and then I can print them and give another set to my neighbor, who I printed out one for her….she loves hers, as much as I love mine!!! Thanks so much, Merrie Christmas and a Happy New Year!!!
