DIY: The 2017 Printable Coloring Calendar

December 20, 2016

You’ve been asking for it! You’ve been wondering if we would do it and today’s the day! I’m excited to bring you this year’s printable coloring calendar illustrated with K.Becca and completed in partnership with Canon – because ya’ll know how much I love my Canon printers!

Last year was all about ridiculous holidays and this time around we’re keeping things equally ridiculous with twelve months of ridiculous facts and adorable images that you can color throughout the year. And in the event coloring is not really your thing or you’re an instant gratification kind of gal (or guy) – this year we’ve got a version of the calendar that is already colored for you by…you guessed it…ME! Now, are you ready to take a look at the 2017 Printable Coloring Calendar of Ridiculous Facts?

Like I said, there are two versions of the coloring calendar – one that is blank and ready for your creativity and another that is completely finished…even with a little signature from me on the last page. You pick –but since these downloads are free, I suppose you should probably grab both versions! I even made sure to share these calendars BEFORE Christmas because they make the perfect gift. Package it up with colored pencils or markers and you’re done.

Bringing the coloring calendar to life was easy with my Canon PIXMA MG7720 – I just scanned the colored pages and saved each file. You can do the same thing! Once you color a page, scan it and use the digital image as wallpaper on your phone or email the image to friends! You could even host a virtual coloring contest by scanning and sharing!

To be honest – it’s kind of freaky how well the PIXMA MG7720 scans. The scan comes out looking exactly like a hand-colored piece of art. Nothing second rate about it!

….AND NOW FOR WHAT YOU’VE ALL BEEN WAITING FOR! The downloads! But first a few tips:

Tips for Printing your Coloring Calendar

  • I used the MG7720 printer for this project – it prints crisp high quality images and with the individual ink tank system you get really vibrant colors too.
  • If possible, print on Canon Matte Photo Paper – the print quality is so much better!
  • We designed this calendar with images that go edge-to-edge so be sure to select “US Letter > Borderless Printing” to get the full effect.

If you’re one of the folks who loves coloring but doesn’t want to ACTUALLY color – well, honey, I’ve got you. For a whole week, I put my coloring skills to the test to create thirteen pages of Damask Love coloring goodness. And if you don’t believe that I colored these in myself, take a look at August and October – I didn’t stay in the lines so well on those!

With all the colors, the file sizes are a little on the larger size, so you’ll want to click through all thirteen pages to download the full calendar.

  1. This is such a fun idea! I’m always looking for cool printable calendars like this for my desk at work, so thank you for giving us this! It’s going to make my breaks and lunches way more entertaining next year!

  2. Thank you so much!
    I started out by searching for a 2017 version of the Calendar of Ridiculous Holidays, but to no avail. And oh, how HAPPY I was to find this beautiful work that you’ve created. I haven’t printed it out yet (I’ve decided on the B&W version– thank you for providing two options!), but already I’ve had so many smiles just looking at these photos. And I’ve never really explored your site before, but I’m quickly making up for lost time. 🙂 (…pin… pin… pin…)
    Speaking of pinning, I went a little nuts with sharing (IG, Pinterest, FB, Twitter, G+). I’m something of a night owl… with coffee. Hope you don’t mind this…
    Last thing– It looks like I’m not able to sign up for your newsletter: I get a message reading “Please enter a valid email address.” Not sure… but, just letting you know in case there might be some kind of little glitch.
    Thanks again, and happy holidays!

  3. Hi Amber, Thanks so much for the calendar! My kids loved the silly holiday one from last year, but this one is all for me! Thanks for sharing your art with us!

  4. Super cute! I just found this and would like to print Oct-Dec but get a 403 error that access is forbidden? Is this still downloadable? Thanks!
