Bad blogger! and 2018 One-sheets

Well, we have a respite from visitors for a bit.  Lovely as it is to have them, it is disruptive.

There has been a lot going on, but I perhaps do a nice overview post at some point, when I find the time. But for now, just a couple of things.

Yes, I am still sending out book folding templates, but you need to know two things:

I cannot fit a particular template to a particular book.  There are people who do that but they will charge you.  I make the template, you count the folds, and find a book to fit.

Why I won’t tell you how many pages you need can be found here 

Next, I got a request for One Sheet calendars for 2018.  Here are a couple.  I did make them both portrait and landscape.  Some people use them for small planners, some for A4/US Letter ones and some use them upright and some sideways.  Remember that the PDFs should resize to fit any size paper.  So if you tick A5 and tick Scale to Fit in your print dialog box, it should print on a half sheet, if you load half sheets in the printer. Bear in mind the text will be small.

The multi-coloured one

Horizontal (landscape)

Vertical (portrait)

 

The colourful block one

Hope they prove useful!

Already? Yep. some 2018 calendars.

Just something I was playing with.  I’ve had gradients on my mind.  So there is the pretty standard B&W version:

which you can download by clicking this link

And there is a pretty, colourful version:

that you can download by clicking this link.

Because I’ve done them as five blocks per page, you get three blank frames at the end for journaling if you want.

Been a while since I made any calendars so this was a bit of fun for me.

Half-sheet calendar

This should have made it up last month, but we’ve been busy.

I loved the quote and have been looking for just the right thing and I think this technological sort of graphic is just right.

The front and back cover.

hgwellscover

and the monthly sheets:

hgwells_quote_calendar2017

Print all the pages then slice them down the middle.  The individual sheets are cropped to the edge of the image – that way, not matter what size sheet of paper you tell your printer to print on, the image will be placed in the middle, and can be cut in half easily.

You can grab that download here.

 

And here is a smaller size to download, printing at just about 5 3/4 x 4 inches

Enjoy.

What?! 2018??

Yep.  I always forget that one of my commenters loves to both get a head start on her Christmas gifts AND to make mid-year gifts of 18-month calendars, so I have already made a 2018 calendar.  Not the only one, remember?  I have the Pretty CD version for 2017 and 2018 here.

You can download that here if you are also a forward-thinker. And the 2017 version of the colouring-in calendar is here!

Another Calendar request

I had forgotten requests in past years for calendar circles that can be punched using a 2″ punch.  It is an easy one to make so here it is – for Michele, who asked, and anyone else who finds it useful!

Do be sure to download the actual PDF and not just grab the image! The .jpg will not be great quality and not the right size.

Silly me – but maybe good for you? Full sheet calendars and a One-Sheet version

I had a request in the comments for the Pretty CD calendar on one sheet.  In my head, that translated to one month per sheet.

2017cdfullpage

This makes a big calendar – you could easily decorate the outer edges after masking off the centre month block for a unique calendar in your own style. Ideas I’ve used are inky stamping:

Alternative cut

and Gelli printing:

Another funky Gelli plate one

But you could also just cut our the circle and add it to patterned paper or card – use double-sided card and you can make one with a month on one side and another on the other, for a flipable version!  You can download that 12-sheet version here.

But I had a moment of doubt (after I had made the 12 sheet version) and got back in touch with the commenter to verify that was what she wanted, rather than the 12 months on one sheet.  Yep. She wanted the 12 months on one sheet. So I made THAT one too.

pretty-cd2017_onesheet

The PDF is cropped to the edge of the image, so it will print centred on whatever paper size you select for your printer. And you can download the one-sheet here.

But because I had taken the time to do the 12 sheet version, I was ALSO able to easily create a 4-months-per-sheet version (download here)

2017cd4_page

and a 6-months-per-sheet version (although only sideways for this one (download here)

2017cdx6sideways

 

They can be used as full sheets or cut apart in various sizes for various uses.  Any could work with projects like this:

 

7quotecalendar

and the smaller ones can be used to make tear-off calendars to add to other projects.

I always loved the cut-top circle version:

So if you find these helpful, say thanks to Elizabeth for asking!

Colouring-in 2017 calendar

While I don’t do it, I totally get the current craze for colouring-in.  I loved colouring when I was a kid, and loved it best when I was a little older and the end result actually looked good.

In that spirit, here is a set of CD case calendar pages for you to colour in each month.  Or give them to the kids to colour in for you.  Practice your  What a great job.  I LOVE it! face.

2017_colouring-calendar

Grab it here.

And I am once again open to sending templates.  Please keep the requests to three, and while I am happy to do them for people to make as gifts, or for a charity auction or sale, please keep it to personal use only.

As requested, Keyring calendar, bigger

I had a request for my keyring calendar, made bigger.  I’ve resized it as specified, four to a page

 

 

ornatex4_jan2april  and you can grab that here! There are no boundary lines so there is a little flexibility on the size.

As it says in the banner, I won’t have time to make and send book folding templates after today.  But there are a number of templates that you might choose from in the menu up top.  While you won’t be able to request specific names or images, generic ones like LOVE, FAMILY, PEACE, JOY, etc are all in there, as are a few full alphabets for you to construct your own template.

I’ll see how things go and will change the banner when/if I start sending them again.

CD calendar resized for 2017 and a Christmas surprise!

I had a request for one of my oldest calendars to be updated.  The commenter particularly wanted the three sizes, as before. This was great, because I had been thinking that I had lost a function when I upgraded my Mac OS but it turns out they just moved it!  I hate that.  When we lived in the city, every freakin’ day M&S seemed to move stuff to a new place.  I’d dash in, with a kid or two in tow, rush right to where the milk was the day before and it would be…bacon, or cheese, or fruit.  You just never knew.

But I digress….turns out the ability to automatically resize things by “printing” then saving as a PDF is still there, just not where it used to be.

So full-size for a CD case 2017cdframe_fullsize

 

Smaller, 4 to a sheet

2017cdframe_smaller

Smaller still, 8 to a sheet2017cdframe_smallest

And now, I thought you might like to see what one commenter, Melanie, made!  So cute – this is the one I really wanted to do myself but haven’t had the time!

I can see what I planned, putting a red pompom in the nose area, will work perfectly.  If I could figure out how to add a bulb, maybe a battery operated one, I would love that!

Here is the template again for anyone who wants to give it a go.  And this is what it looks like:

Planner side-by-side

I am experimenting with a Year-at-a-glance planner sheet.  It is a tricky one to get right for both US letter and A4 paper.  Give it a go and see what you think – I haven’t done specific topper pages, but you can always just add a strip of patterned paper, or stamp onto the blank bit at the top.  Just fold in half with the print edges lined up then slice up the middle. Depending on the paper you use the sheets will be slightly different sizes – A4 makes two at about 5.75 inches, and US letter is about 5.5 inches.

Grab it here!

And you can also print it and punch holes along the top edge, to add to a 4-ring, 3-ring  or 2-ring binder.  Haven’t tested them all so not sure about the 2017 placement, but again, you can always stick paper over it and add the year with number stickers or stamps.

 

Enjoy.
