English speakers look away! French and Spanish 2015 Project Life calendar cards

This started as a bit of an experiment.  In the past I have done Spanish calendars and they were popular.  As I had a flurry of visits from France, I though I might as well go ahead and do a French one too.  The major thing is that if what I see online is to be believed both commonly  use the Monday to Sunday format.  As I had taken the time to do both this year, it seemed an easy thing.  The real issue turned out to be the DAY abbreviations!  I found a LOT of variation.  For the formatting, it is far easier to standardize the day abbreviations and that SEEMS to be acceptable but it is hard to know.

I used slightly different fonts.  The French one is Fontleroy Brown and the Spanish one is Sevillana – why?  they FEEL right, but then what do I know?  At the end of the day, they look good to me so there you go.

I will be very interested in any feedback from native French or Spanish speakers – how wrong did I get it?  It’ll all feed into my future calendars so if you like them and use them, take a moment to let me know.  If I got it horribly wrong tell me that too!

F&S

The FRENCH version is here.

The SPANISH version is here.

Now, that really MUST be the end of calendars for a bit.  Much as I love the process and designing them, it’s just time to get obsessed with something new, for a while….. {wink}
