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.

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.

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.

Year at a Glance for planners and 2018 DIY

One of my followers, Moz, made one of my all-time favourite calendar projects.  I’ve shown it many times but if you missed it you can see it here.  She always does 18 month calendars so often asks for at least a part of the next year much sooner than I expect – you’d think I’d expect it by now LOL!

I’ve done the DIY (Decorate it yourself) calendar for 2018.  diy2018s2s

Grab it here.

Another follower always needs her calendars resized, which is more work than it once was, due to some changes in the OS I use.  BUT I know the size she needs.  To accommodate people who need different sizes, I will now plan on spacing things out as above.    You can cut outside the lines and get a bigger calendar block, up to about 4 x 5 1/2 inches, if you need it.

So that is two special requests down!

Lastly, I had a request for a planner Year at a Glance sheet.  You may recall I made a series of planner pages that included a variety of toppers that you can print month at a glance sheets on.  I’ve done two YAAG for 2017 that fit.  I know for sure they work perfectly on A4 paper and I believe they will work reasonably well for US letter paper.

There is a plain version and a fancy font version, as well as the watercolour planner surround –

watercolourplanner

Grab that here.

and the calendar sheets look like this:

yaag2017plain yaag2017

 

Grab the PLAIN FONT version here and the FANCY FONT version here

You can easily print them and decorate the top as you like, even just sticking a strip of scrapbook paper over it and adding the year back with stickers!

So I think that takes care of any special request type things.  Phew.

Requested, but I might as well share

I have been hiding away, recovering from the devastating news from the USA and from a tooth extraction.  I’ll say no more on either topic.  But I had gotten a request for calendars with a triangular theme.  I made one, then another.  Here they are:

So called Last calendar for 2017

Silly name, but last year I called this one Last2016 so I guess I have to stick with it. This one was a request from a commenter.  Here it is, updated for 2017!

last2017

Also, I have a number of projects that are useful for gift-giving.  If you want to take these calendar blocks and create a stand for them, or otherwise display them, you can check out the new page up top. I include a few links to past calendar related projects that might inspire you.  There is still time to whip up a few for gifts!
