This month has a special story attatched to it and I already have posted this on Facebook but want to do so here as well. This photo is taken in Leur (now a part of Etten-Leur) and the Dutchies will know it, and so do the recipients of the calendar. Therefor I don’t put it on the calendar but I think for some of youwho love history it can be interesting.
From 1568 – 1648 there was 80 years of war (Tachtigjarige Oorlog) between the Low Countries and Spain and the nearby walled town of Breda was occupied by the Spaniards. The Dutch prince Maurits wanted to take back the town which was heavily garded. A skipper, called Adriaan van Bergen, was bringing in peat (turf) for fuel with his boat on a regular basis and the gards knew him and his boat so well that they stopped searching his boat. So a trick was devised! In the harbour of Leur 70 soldiers were hidden under the load of peat and in the nightly hours of the 4th of March 1590 they very stealthly came out of the boat and opened the gates of Breda for their comrads who had been hiding nearby and the town was taken back!
This skipper is now known as the Turfschipper and the boat het Turfschip. On the photo you see a statue of Adriaan van Bergen on the side of what once was the little harbour. The big building on the other side of the water is Het Turfschip, a community center. The gun is just decoration; the nearby square is called Van Bergenplein.October 27, 2021 at 4:11 pm #66833Bonnie BallentineParticipant
What a great story, Corrie. TFS!October 27, 2021 at 7:10 pm #66841Anita WyattParticipant
Here is my finished cover for the calendar. For the background I used another picture of my hometown, added a cat png I found on line and cropped it to fit. Then i used the dropper tool to get some of the eye color for the 2022 text. My PSP did not recognize the font Carole used and substitute Ariel for it. After trying some other fonts, I decided to use the Ariel with a stroke of 2 in the same brown as on the picture. This has been a fun challenge and I learned so much again. I wish I had known about Scrapbook Campus years ago. Now that I know about the Campus, I will enjoy PSP more than ever. Thank you Carole for your patience and guidance. Also a Big Thank You goes out to everyone that particioated and shared their talented work.October 27, 2021 at 9:14 pm #66843Chris SchultsParticipant
So I have finished my april page. A bit greeny, because it is called grasmaand in Dutch. And like I did on 1st January with fireworks I put here fools day on the first
The cottage is somewhere in Kent near Faversham Golf Club. Spend a short holiday in it. (Sept 2012)October 28, 2021 at 2:15 am #66844
Love all the layouts shown here, bit too much to comment on all individual ones 🙂October 28, 2021 at 11:00 am #66858Marie-ClaireParticipant
so many layouts! very nice to see, with this, one can gain inspiration. And how beautiful they are all.
Here is my calendar, finished today ?October 28, 2021 at 1:04 pm #66861
Bonnie thank you so much!
Marie-Claire, lovely calendar, someone will be very happy to receive this!
I’m not finished yet but progressing steadily; 3 calendars at the same time is maybe a bit ambitious!October 28, 2021 at 3:40 pm #66863
The cover for the Dutch heritage calender.
I’m still not sure about the colour of the border/text.October 28, 2021 at 4:19 pm #66864
Monique I understand why, I find the border a bit overpowering, a bit dark. Have you tried other colors? In the photo is some red and even blue; besides you do not have to have the border and 2022 in the same color. Maybe You have thought and tried this already…..October 28, 2021 at 4:42 pm #66868
I’ve tried so many colours, but I think you’re right. Maybe it’s even more overpowering because the text and border are the same colour.
My mill version has different colours for text en border I see now and that’s much better. Even though the blue on the mill one is also bright, it looks far better.
Well, back to the drawing board! :).

I am finally wrapping things up. Here are a few pages that are representative of the whole calendar. My intention is to have it printed as a wall calendar.
The focus is visual to help my mom quickly recognize upcoming birthdays/holidays. The pictures give her an easy way to remember whose birthday “month” it is.October 30, 2021 at 4:46 pm #66967
This are the pages of my first calendar, all finished and ready to print! They are all about the village I live and the recipients will know what the photos are about, so no explanation text is needed.October 30, 2021 at 8:30 pm #66970
I had to nudge this project to the back burner this week, so I could work on my paid job 🙁 But I have tried to check in daily to enjoy everyone’s posts! Love them all! So many great ideas!
June continues with my flower theme. I added a bit of graph paper for a few notes.October 31, 2021 at 4:42 am #66980Ann SeeberParticipant
Linda: Beautiful photo and calendar layout! One typo needs a correction. The text on the photo has “condflower” which I’m sure should be “coneflower.”
Sorry, as an ex-editor/proofreader these little snags always hit me between the eyes! 😉October 31, 2021 at 5:03 am #66981
Love your calender, Corrie,
Fun to see Ï’m using the datestamp too as you did without knowing we both use it the same way 🙂
(What’s the font in April? Love it!)October 31, 2021 at 5:05 am #66982
Wow, what a bunch of beautiful calanders have been shown here! 🙂October 31, 2021 at 7:19 am #66986
Oh my, YES Ann Seeber, that is a typo! Thank you for telling me, I have to know about it to fix it!
PSP X9 has been problematic for me on my new laptop. At times, when trying to edit something, it will just close the entire program, and everything that I have open. I lose any changes since my last save. And I will have to repeat them. It happened last night, at least once. It may be time for me to retire X9, and transition to learning PSP 2020 or 2021. But I dislike change 🙁October 31, 2021 at 9:10 am #66988
Monique thank you. The font I used on the datestamp, I think that’s what you asked about, is Arienne, a free one by CF. The font for all the names of the month is Colonna MT, also by CF. I made an account there and get a free font/grafic every day; I have so many now that I’m becoming a bit picky.October 31, 2021 at 7:20 pm #67004Daphne BowyerParticipant
Hi , Corrie I am interested in getting some free fonts could you tell me what is the name of the place you joined to get them .. you said it was CF
Many thanks DaphneOctober 31, 2021 at 7:32 pm #67005
I did a web search, and came up with this – https://www.cufonfonts.com/font/cf-fashionOctober 31, 2021 at 7:45 pm #67006Gerry LandrethParticipant
Daphne – I get most of my fonts from CreativeFabrica.com. They have free fonts and $1 specials.
There is also a helpful Resource section on the Campus – https://scrapbookcampus.com/resources/October 31, 2021 at 10:04 pm #67011
I guess I am slow….sorry! I keep looking at everyone’s pages and finding new inspiration! I worked on August tonight. We see hummingbird moths, usually in August and into September here in Pennsylvania. It is always fun to see them. They love my butterfly bush.November 2, 2021 at 9:49 pm #67095
I love some sunflowers 🙂
Several important dates in October-Oct 1 will always be mom’s birthday, the 14th was my parents anniversary, then birthdays for my daughter and my sister.November 4, 2021 at 4:44 pm #67206
Daphne, sorry for my late reaction, but I just see your question now. I’m glad Gerry was able to answer you somewhat quicker. I’m a great fan of Creative Fabrica, they offer a free font every day and have the most loviest fonts! I hope you will visit them and see for yourself. It is an easy way to build a collection.November 10, 2021 at 9:58 am #67420
Corrie, thanks. (I read this earlier, but forgot to reply)The Arienne font isn’t free anymore, but thanks!November 10, 2021 at 3:41 pm #67431
Monique no problem, there were so many entries. The fonts from Creative Fabrica, at least the freebies are only free for 24 hours, but some will reappear after a while. I can recomment making an account and then you get every day a free font and 2 other freebies. Sometimes they are really great!November 14, 2021 at 8:29 am #67544
I forgot to show my calender about old fashioned Netherlands……December 5, 2021 at 9:57 am #68558Chris SchultsParticipant
still working on the calendar.February 28, 2022 at 3:31 pm #72891
I think our calenders are wrong?
March starts on tuesday but on our templates on wednesday? Or do I need other glasses?
