2018 and 2019 plain PL cards, as requested

Jess commented that she liked the Doily PL cards because they had a larger font.  Perhaps they are more readable without the large decoration, and it is easy to REMOVE something and re-create the PDF, so here they are:

and

I also centred them in the middle of the card.  They could be enhanced by:

  • trimming a scant border and mounting them on patterned paper or coloured cardstock
  • trimming them with decorative scissors, maybe only top or bottom, and mounting on card
  • dusting distress ink around the edges
  • adding a stamped or sticker border top and/or bottom

You could also create a larger calendar with them by mounting the cards onto a much larger piece, with more room to decorate!

Be sure to check back on my calendar projects page for other ideas with 3×4 cards. This shows a larger calendar block but could easily be adapted to use cards like these:

Enjoy!

Prom?

OK, so I know this is well in advance of when it might be needed, but I have had more than one request for a Prom? template over the years.  I always intended to make a set available but never got around to it.  Then I had another email request and it prompted me to just do it.  I figure Prom?– askers might appreciate the extra time to wrap their heads around the craftiness required, make a test fold, and find the right, most significant book.

Not to appear too cynical but the book can be folded and hidden away.  And it’ll still work, even if the potential recipient changes over the course of the year.

Now, there are 7 fonts, but with the last one, I experimented with a top-to-bottom stretch to give it a bit more height.  I think it will work.  I quite like funky #5 personally.  But you should also know I have not folded any of these myself.  If you do, send me a photo. I’d love to add it to show people how they turn out! Grab the whole set in the PDF here.

I think it would be cute to present the book with a long-stem rose threaded thru the spine….just a thought…..

Book folding Templates – BIG Alphas

I am getting the sense that the serifs on the collegiate-style alphabet makes them less useful, and have been meaning to take the 20 minutes it needed to make a big, bold, plain alphabet, like this:

Only the I and the J share a page.

I also did the numbers (use the O from the alphabet for Zero) with a couple of extras:

Grab them:

Hope they are useful!

2018 Monday to Sunday One-sheet

This will work with the top&bottom backgrounds from the previous post.  It looks like this:

and you can download it by clicking here.

I’ve sort of stopped doing the Project Life versions.  Feel free to comment if that s something you really really miss and add a link to any style that you’d like as PL cards.  If time allows I’ll make a couple.
