Calendar Journal - Year Five

I'm beginning year FIVE with my calendar journal project.

Obviously I love documenting a bit of each day.  My struggle has been the format.  Yep, I have another new format going.  This might be the one...***have I said that before?...snicker***. 

Three months of 2017 are ready for the day's happenings.

It's pretty simple.  I just need this one template.

I photocopy my template and cut away the blocks I don't need for that month.  Then I number the days.  These templates will work for whatever month starts on these days.  From here I just choose a fun piece of scrapbook paper and photocopy the template to the scrapbook paper.  From there just a little bit of artsy/craftsy page deco is needed.  This is working for me nicely.

Depending how the days fall for the month, some months will allow for more deco fun than others.

I couldn't really wait for January to give it a try, so I began with December 2016.

Here's to the bits and bobs of the 365 days of 2017.


  1. Your calendars are always fun and so neat looking Annie! Here's to the happiest of new year's yet!

  2. I love your calendars! So very fun! Happy 2017!

  3. Oh yes, fun and pretty and sounds easy to create each month.
    I love that you started in December because you couldn't wait. And December would be a fun month to document too as you've shown here.
    I could read your entries this time, and I enjoyed your happy art and crafting.

  4. Annie I just have to say five (5) is my lucky number...yes, I know it is of no interest to you but I always love seeing a reference to five (5). Your calendar pages/journals are consistently fun tidbits of your daily happenings. December looks amazing so I do agree you just might have found your perfect layout. May you have a Wonderful 2017 and enJOY every moment and beyond...XO

  5. Annie, your calendars are so much fun! I'm impressed with your steadfastness. I started way back when (was it really 5years ago) and sadly, only lasted 2 years.

  6. I like your new format; it looks like such a good idea. This format gives you another frame of creativity. You have inspired me to give it a try and maybe make my own pages.
    I bought a calendar a while ago but I put it "somewhere" and can't find it.

  7. That grid is such a great idea! Usually the most challenging part for me, love the way you do it, so much easier. Thanks for sharing.

  8. I love your calendar pages so much. I love peeking into your days. I'm such a snoop. :) You have such an amazing talent. Thanks for sharing with us. Happy 2017.

  9. :) I wish I could organize myself enough to do this! I so love looking at your monthly calendar pages! They are both fun and useful--providing a quick look back at important dates and memories!

  10. Love seeing this month! So special with the festive embellishments!

  11. I love seeing your calendars it always inspires me, but every time I start one I don't keep with it... Maybe next year! (Things should be more settled then hopefully). I hope this new layout is your favorite yet!
