Mixbook Photo Calendars Are Here!

Hey Mixbookers!

We’re so proud to introduce Mixbook photo calendars!  Just like our photo books and cards, you can use the Mixbook Editor to create beautiful, fully- customizable photo calendars with your favorite photos and stickers.   You can choose from many new themes, and make your calendar either an 11×8.5 landscape or a 12×12 square.

One of our coolest features is the ability to add photos to specific dates on the calendar grid.  Use a pretty picture of mom on her birthday or a photo of the blushing bride on the date of an impending wedding.  Why stop there!  Select “Manage Events” from the top right corner of the Mixbook Editor to pick and choose which holidays you want to include in your photo calendar, and put in your own events like a long-awaited family vacation or a wedding anniversary.

You can also customize the calendar grid pages.  Stickers and photos can be in front of or behind the grid itself.  Make them slightly transparent for a neat watermark effect.  Change up the background of the grid pages to give your months more flair.

These are just some of the cool things you can do to personalize  your photo calendars.  Once you get started, we know you’ll love them as much as we do! Happy Mixbooking!

The Blog’s on Us

A great blog post was written about Mixbook on Langwitches.org – thank you to Silvia for posting yet another informative and thorough article about how Mixbook’s online software can be used in the classroom. A class of fourth graders used Mixbook to create a book about famous explorers – they divided into groups and each group took a double page spread and researched and wrote about their assigned explorer.

This kind of hands-on project allows children to create something easily and beautifully while helping them to understand technology.

The children did a wonderful job on the project and you can view it here.
