A break from sending templates, printable Hipster card toppers, and the most bizarre tech tip

First, I am taking a break from sending out templates over Christmas.  I will sort out the few I have in my comments today and respond to any that come in until DECEMBER 19TH.  After that, you can click on the Book Folding categories or tags or menu item at the top and feel free to download any of the templates I have shared.  While you won’t find specific images or words or names, there is probably going to be SOMETHING you can use to make a last-minute gift!

Here are a couple of printables.  This PDF will print two images has six of the images which print at about 3.5 inches square

This PDF has 12 images at just shy of 2.5 inches square, perfect for tags.

Lastly, I just have to share this bizarre tip I found.  I had a moment of absolute panic when my trusty Canon Pixma stopped working, throwing out a B200 error and telling me I needed to take it in for a service.  Cue copious cursing and a pretty weak tantrum, but only because of my myositis LOL!  Trust me, inside, I was RAGING.  I dropped a Slack to dear hubby, who is my tech hero, as well as having a very calm head in the face of things I totally lose my sh*t over, who suggested checking online for an error reset hack.  I found a few that involved things that did NOT work (like pushing a series of buttons, holding them down on a coordinated and times fashion, or uninstalling the print head, which didn’t work for MY Pixma model and turned out to create another problem) then I stumbled on the genius, simple, but frankly totally BIZARRE solution that worked first time!! The steps are simple:

1. Turn OFF the printer
2. Open the flap as if to change inks cartridges
3. Turn the power back ON
4. Wait for print carriage to start moving to the left and let it go past half way

This was where I was thinking in my head There is NO WAY this is going to work! HA!

5. Before print carriage reaches left hand side (but after going halfway across) shut the cover.

Again, I am thinking I will miss the exact point I need to close the cover and should be spending my time figuring out how to convince DH to stop and buy me any printer he can, then bring it home and install it this afternoon. But the closing of the lid at the right moment was either luck or the window of opportunity it quite a wide one or it doesn’t matter at what point you close it

6. Leave the Printer on
7. Good to go.

I printed a test sheet, did all the cleaning functions offered in the print utility and printed a perfect sheet.  My green ON light is steady and as the instructions said, GOOD TO GO!

So it PRINTS, and the B200 error has been cleared, except now, the previous attempt and removing the cartridges and removing the print head must have misaligned it somehow, so in the end I am not good to go.  I am back to raging.  Oh well….

2018 One Sheet Calendars

I have been trying to reorganize my files, a bit, and as I have collected them in one place, I thought I would add all the one sheets as one download.

 

You can grab them all here.

Now, these are a bit of a mix of sizes and styles.  But if you select the size you want to print, and Scale to Fit you should be able to print them in any size you need.  And if you can find the options to print multiple images on a page then you can play with that too.

Hopefully there are enough style and colour choices that you can find one you like.

Pixel Calendar for 2018 and Sisters book folds

We had some mail issues in November, I won’t bore you with the technicalities, but it meant that I got mail sometimes, on some devices, but not on others.  So when it got fixed I got a lot of mail in a flood.  I seem to have missed a couple of template requests, so if you asked for one and have NOT gotten it, and you have already checked to make sure it didn’t get put in your SPAM folder, then come back to me.

I had a request for a favourite calendar, for 2018.  Download that here

And also a request for a book folding template that is probably useful for many, SISTERS. Here it is for download, a few options:
