Some of you may remember last year when I used the Rifle Paper Company’s 2015 “Travel the World Calendar” to create a gallery wall in my daughter’s bedroom:
A couple days after I shared that project, the calendars sold out :(. For several months, I received emails from readers asking if I knew anywhere possible to find the calendar. I felt so bad because I know that many of you wanted to do the project. I loved seeing pictures and sweet emails from those of you who did manage to get your hands on the calendar.
Ok, so the good news is that all of the Rifle Paper Company 2016 wall calendars have just been released, including the Travel the World and they are all over the top amazing! Rifle prints on the best kind of thick paper, with rich vibrant inks that are so perfect for turning into frameable art.
The bad news is that they have made the Travel the World a smaller, desktop 6 x 6 size (although they did the same exact prints for each month). It’s still adorable for framing, they would just be smaller (the mats could be cut oversized too to make larger):
But again, like I mentioned, the other 2016 calendars that Rifle just came out with are really gorgeous and so perfect for framing. I know first hand because I ordered them all the day they came out (yea, I’m a little obsessed with Rifle designs and I was afraid they would sell out again). In fact, towards the end of this post, I’m sharing another project I just did for my office using the new 2016 Rifle Cities Around the World Calendar but let me show you the new calendars first.
So here are the 2016 Rifle calendars and you can click on links to go to Amazon (affiliate links used) and click on the calendar side images to see what each of the pages look like and measurement details;
By the way, Rifle Paper Company is really known mainly for it’s large full size (16 x 20) art prints, which are more expensive but if you’re really interested in doing the full size “Travel the World” gallery wall, you’ll find all Rifle Paper full size prints here, along with Rifle’s gorgeous full size botanicals and sketches. I could fill my whole home with them, they are all so incredible!
When I received all of the 2016 calendars a couple weeks ago, I knew that I would be using one of them to create a gallery wall in my studio/office. It was a hard decision because I so loved the vibrant colors of the Folk calendar but I decided that I really wanted to use the Cities around the world:
I created the gallery wall by using the exact same technique/tutorial that I used last year for my daughter’s “Travel the World” wall here, if you’re interested in exactly how to do it yourself.
Using calendars for art work is really easy these days because of the thick papers being used today and the vibrant inks. It’s such a quick, easy and inexpensive way to fill up a wall, especially if you pick up your frames when Michael’s, Hobby Lobby or Aaron’s has them 40-50% off!
In the next few weeks, I’ll be sharing a round-up of some of the prettiest frame-worthy calendars that I have been seeing coming out for 2016. So many pretty possibilities.
Thanks for stopping by!
