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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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!
