Calendar for 2022-2023 – Pretty CD Circle

I am going to add sets of 2022-2023 calendars over the next few weeks, every Saturday. I am focusing on the ones that are most popular over the years, beginning with the Pretty Circle CD calendars.

The 2022 Pretty CD Circle has already been shared, but I will add the image and the link to save you hunting for it:

Here is the 2023 version – download it here:

Next week, the DIY (both CD and 3×4 versions!)


2022 One-sheets

As I am cleaning up my blog archives to make room for newer posts, I have also been reflecting on my very old (2009) Mac mini and the program I use for lots of things. It isn’t being updated and the newest version of the Mac OS seems to break it. I have been hunting and hunting for a replacement and nothing I have seen is as good or as easy or as cheap. Anyway, the point of all that is I might not be able to make calendars in the future – and I for sure won’t be able to do the book folding templates that I still send out every week as I get requests for names or images. It is also getting close enough to 2022 I thought it was worth highlighting the 2022 One-sheets that I have already made. Here is a quick overview along with links to download them:

The left version is here, and the right one here.

The left is here and the right one is here.

The doily calendars one-sheet right here and the watercolour version is here.

Of course there are other 2022 calendars also available, including the DIY one (showing the 2021 version but the 2022 version is in the download) and the Pretty circle CD one.

I am considering making a few of the 2023 versions while my Mac and my program still work, so if there is one you particularly like and would be sad not to have for 2023, do let me know. I get emails every year from people who use the Pretty CD one, the Doily one and the DIY 3×4 card one for gifts so pretty sure I would start with them. But open to requests.

Back to editing and deleting. I have a loooonnngg list of Project Life stuff that really needs to be trashed to claw back space and it’s WOYWW tomorrow so I need to get sorted for that – and not forget my If You HAD to… cards this time. DOH!


A delaying tactic – 2022 Circle CD calendar

Well, typical. I threw out my back over the weekend and was in no fit state to sit at my desk. So, as I have been asked for this a few times, I thought I would add my 2022 Pretty CD Calendar. It gives me another day to recover and prepare for the week ahead.

It is a new version, but the same IYKWIM. Different fonts, a different ornament, but otherwise just like the perennial favourite. I know people do like to get started on their calendars for the upcoming year quite early, and many of the people who got in touch to ask if this was coming soon did so because they want to use it for making Christmas gifts. I always mentally mark JULY as the month to add it and I feel like I have hit that target. And Grrrr. for making me think of that winter holiday far too early for my liking…

You can download it here!


2021-2022 DIY CD style calendar, by request

Yeah, well I did day I was a bit all over the place lately. I had a request for a calendar that I made, I think, only once in 2013. I did the small “diy” calendars, where you could decorate the top and make a 3×4 Project Life sized card many times, but not really the CD sized ones. Funnily enough I made a 2021 version kinda in error, not taking on board the fact that it was CD sized ill I finished it. I guess I was a bit distracted LOL! It looks like this:

As you can see, there is a blank area to decorate at the top, just like the smaller ones, although there is maybe less area, proportionally, than on the smaller cards. Once again, that same sample shot:

Lots of option, from simple strips of pretty paper, to carefully built collages, to use-your-washi versions, as well as stamping and gel printing.

As I had the 2021 version done, it is easy enough to create the 2022 version. Not going to bore you with another sample shot, as the design is identical to the 2021 version above. So here they are.

Last calendars for 2021 – pretty cherry blossom one-sheets

As I mentioned yesterday, this is the last calendar I am doing for 2021. While one-sheets are still useful for the planner folk, I feel like I have added enough of them at this point that there will be one that will suit you, if you come looking. I’ll plan to update the page in the header that lists links to all of them, but you can also just plug in 2021 (or 2022 even!) in the search bar and all the posts should come up.

I quite like this one and use it myself. You can download the two-page PDF with both the 2021 and the 2022 versions.

Hope you find it useful! And here is my 100 days page for today. From next week yo will get two on a Monday and I’ll be lazing around with the family on Sundays! I’ve added a stamped element and am considering making at least the OPTION to do that a part of the project. Ideally I will be adding a stamp that I have either NEVER or very RARELY used. This may be one of my favourites so far…

2021 DIY calendar

Yes, yes, I know it is slipping later and later into the year, but people still email me asking for these and I am sorry it took me a little longer to get to them. I have shared, many times, these images of how people have used the DIY calendars. They are individual pages, so easily added to a planner or a Project Life pocket page any time during the year, not just used as a stand-alone project or gift. Here is my original set, decorated with a variety of goodies:

and here are some that were done by people who downloaded the set and brought their own flavour to them!

and this cute Cat version:

Download the printable PDF here. Hopefully you will find them useful!

And because I have to stay on track, here is Day 3 of my 100 days project – perhaps my least favourite. I feel I am slipping back into more chaos. Hopefully I can reel it back in today!

Another 2021-2022 Floral Onesheet Calendar

Yep. Sunday again. I only have one or two more of these, generally requests for updates of previous calendars. This one is another very pretty one, pastel and floral – almost romantic {wink}. Hope the pair is useful for your planners! Grab the 2-page PDF here. Here is an image of the 2022 version:


Another set of 2021-2022 One-sheets

I still have a few of these to share. Just because the first of the year has come and gone, I find people still ask for updates of the current year +1. These are pretty, pastel, and floral, not something I make often, so enjoy!

You can download the pair here, and just so you know what you are getting – slightly different fonts, but the same surround:

2021 and 2022 Calendar One-sheets

Feeling a bit better today, so here is a quick Calendar – I get many requests from people to have more than one year available so I am trying to do calendars in two year sets. This one is one I really like – you can download the 2021-2022 set here . Hope you find it useful!

I won’t keep banging on about it, but do look back to the post here for info on how to alter the size.


Sunday is calendar day, I guess….

Every year I get a request for my Leafy Circles calendar. One of my followers makes a very nice project with them every year so if I am slow off the mark, I get a request. I think I may just have pipped her at the post, as they say! This is the original version and you can download that here.

Ad this is an updated version that might also appeal. You can download THIS version here!

I’ll just add Melissa’s calendar project to show you what you can do with them. You can easily print the two pages and use them in planners as well – and you can pop back to this post to see how to alter the size to suit your planner.
