NOW OFFERING: Holiday Photo Cards!

I have exciting news!
I have decided to offer a new-to-me product: holiday photo cards! Think SnapFish, Minted, Walgreens, only handmade AND less expensive!

Currently, I have six design options with several customization options. Each card is a flat card with picture and design on the front, and blank except for a small logo on the back. They come with appropriately sized envelopes. You can print and attach the pictures or I can do that for you too.

Here are the six designs:
Bubbles - 4 x 9 card with (2) 3x3 pictures

Holly Jolly - 4 x 9 card with a 4 x 6 picture

Sparkles - 4 x 9 card with a 4 x 6 picture

Snowman - 5 x 7 card with a 3 x 4 picture

Trees - 5 x 7 card with a 3.5 x 5 picture

Very Merry - 5 x 7 card with a 3.5 x 5 picture collage

Free Customizations available:
  • Card base can be white or ivory
  • You choose the wording (as long as it will fit, so keep it short!) and the font from a list of available fonts. (Which I will have up for you to see soon!)
  • I am willing to consider other options as well, depending on what you want. I will let you know if there is an additional charge for any alterations.

                   With Photo       Without Photo
1-50            $1.25 each         $1.00 each
50+             $1.00 each         $0.75 each

Other Fee Options:

  • Setting up pictures to print: $5 per order unless it's just a single picture that just needs to be sized correctly.
  • Envelopes printed with your return address: $0.10 per envelope
  • Envelopes printed with your return address PLUS the recipient's address: $0.25 per envelope

2015 Calendars Preorder

Life has been extremely crazy in the last year and I haven't had time to post anything, sorry about that! We are starting the design process for the 2015 calendars, yay! I'll post some pictures hopefully by the end of next week!

Click here for more information about the calendars.

Click here to take my pre-order survey. You are not committing to purchasing at this point, I just need a general count so I know how many to make :-)

Calendars will again come pre-assembled this year and are $20 each. 

If you would like to purchase one of the kits from previous years, I still have Cheery, Whimsy, Style 2, and Style 1 kits available. You can decide if you would like a 2015 calendar blank or just a blank calendar that you can date however you would like. Kits are $10.

As always, email me with any questions at

2014 Calendars–Preorder now!

I know it’s only May but I’m already hard at work on next year’s calendars! I want to let you know of the changes to what I will be offering. Based on your feedback from the survey I sent out at the end of last year, I’ll be selling just the assembled calendars for $18.

You will have two options for your “calendar”:

1. A standard calendar with places for your pictures, just like before

2. 8” x 8” assembled pages ready for you to put pictures on and slip into an 8”x8” scrapbook. They’ll still be assembled, but on plain white cardstock, unbound and not printed on (this is for those of you who don’t really use it like a calendar anyway Smile).

Because of these changes, I would really really like to know how many calendars you would like in the next few weeks. This way, I can start working on them right away. You don’t have to pay me right away of course, I just need an estimate of how many you will want. Please let me know by June 15th!

Here’s a little sneak peek of February and December…aren’t they cute?!? 2014-022014-12

Looking forward to hearing from you soon!


P.S. I’m still offering referral credit, this year it will be 10% off your order for each new customer that places an order (up to 50%)!

Last call for Cheery (2013) calendars! (End of the run sale!)

I only have 5 calendars left for the Cheery 2013 calendars and I’d really like to sell out! So…if you would like a calendar, preassembled, for the regular kit cost of $18, please let me know! These will be on a first come, first serve basis, of course, and I have them ready for you now!

You can look at the pictures for this year’s calendar here.

Email me at handmadebysela at gmail dot com or call/text me at 970 481 7348 to order or with questions.

Here’s to a great Christmas as we celebrate the birth of our Savior!


P.S. If you really really just want a kit, it’d be just $15!

It’s time for the Calendar Social! Plus an opportunity to bless another…

I finally have the kits ready! Hooray! So, here’s the scoop on this year’s calendar social:

When: Sunday, November 11th, 2:00-6:00

Where: Summitview Community Church – 1601 W. Drake Road in Fort Collins. *UPDATE* It will be in room G227, same room as last year. It’s right above the gym. Call me if you need directions! 970 481 7348

View Larger Map

What: Pick up your calendar kits at least. Stay to hang out with some other women and get at least some of your calendar(s) assembled. There will also be light refreshments.

You can also purchase Easy Sticks, which is one of my preferred adhesives for the calendars, for $2.50 each. You need 1-2 per calendar kit. Please let me know if you are interested so I can make sure to have enough.

Also, if you have not let me know how many (if any) calendars or kits you would like this year, please do so soon! I would hate for you to miss out!

Something more

Most of you know Sam Alvarado and about sweet Esther’s battle with cancer. She usually orders a large quantity of calendars and assembles them herself to give to family. I would love to be able to give her the calendars, all assembled and ready to gift. If you are willing to help assemble or help cover the expense of her calendars (which I’m selling to her at cost), please let me know! Please do not feel obligated in any way to help with this project, I just wanted to let you all know of another opportunity to serve the Alvarados :-)

As always, feel free to email anytime if you have any questions!

See you Sunday!

2013 “Cheery” Calendar

The 2013 calendar is ready to show you!


Awesome, right??

Kits are $18 and pre-assembled calendars are $26. If you would like to order 1 or 10, please email me at

Remember I’m offering referral credit of $1 per calendar sold to new customers, so be thinking about who might love these as much as you do. Make sure they mention your name when they email me.

Also, make sure you check out this previous post to see sale prices on the old calendar kits that I still have. If you don’t have one of those kits, it’s a screamin’ deal!

As always, there is a limited number of kits, and when they’re gone, they’re gone! So make sure to place your order early!

Be on the lookout for information about the annual calendar social, a great way to get at least some of your kits done, all while having some girlfriend time :)
