Today I’ve got all my calendar downloads for you in one place along with some tips for creating your own custom stamped calendars.
Let’s get started…
Traditional and Modern 11×17 Wall Calendars
This calendar is one that I never posted. It’s the same layout as the floral one, just with modern fonts and a more modern and graphic imagery. I also rounded the corners of the calendar for a little something different.
For this calendar, I’ve got two templates for you. One with the dates perfectly centered and another with the dates a bit off center toward the right (as shown above). This allows you the choice of stamping a number in place of the month as I did in this calendar or you can go the more traditional route and stamp the month name above the dates.
I designed this calendar to fit within the Landscape Calendar Case available at www.calendar-case.com. You definitely don’t need the case though – this would make a great desk calendar placed on an easel! For the templates, I had to create six different documents (two months on each page) since I was having a terrible time getting the formatting to cooperate. I hope this isn’t too inconvenient!
I designed this template to fit in the Business Card sized clear calendar case available at www.calendar-case.com. This is probably on of the quickest calendars to create! Just stamp fun, simple images on each page and you’re done! Again, because of formatting problems, this is a two page template with six months on each page.
Now for a few tips on creating your custom calendar:
Before printing, check the page size in your “Print” dialog box. There were a few times when my computer automatically set the printer to fit the calendar onto a 8.5×11 sheet of paper. For many of the templates this is ok, but for the Modern Pattern Desk Calendar, for example, the template is formatted to print directly onto an 8.5 x 5.5, so you’ll need to check your setting to make sure that it will print correctly.

Can’t print onto 11×17 paper from your home computer? I was able to print mine at a FedEx Kinkos store. You can also try Staples or Office Max where they offer printing service
For the Mehndi Medallion Calendar, here are two tips that will help you out:
Save the scraps!
Each page of the Mehndi calendar measures 4×6, which means I could fit two on each page. That also means that you’ll have a lot of scraps after trimming down each page. Save the scraps! You can use them for making a belly band or tags for packaging.
Pencil in the month.
These calendar pages do not include the month. I did this so that I could stamp the month on each page using PTI’s Calendar Basics. I have noted the corresponding month next to each page but when you trim this part away, you don’t want to lose track of which month is which. To solve this issue, I simply penciled the month name on the back of each calendar page. Once I was done stamping, I erased my notes.
Please email me with any questions you have and if you create a calendar with one of these templates – I’d love to see!!!
