Welcome to "The 12 days of doing your Christmas calendar presents early this year":DD

This is the perfect challenge for you if you want to make your own calendar for next year - to give as presents or to keep for yourselves. By the end of the month you will have your calendar ready to print with lots of time to spare until Christmas :))

Here are the rules:

For the next 12 days I will give you a calendar template for one month. You will add pictures, papers, embellishments, change colors, fonts ... make it your own.
When you're done, post your calendar in the Christmas in July calendar challenge gallery (http://www.digitalscrapbookingstudio.com/gallery/g1574-12-days-of-creating-your-christmas-calendar.html) and here in this thread, so I can pm you with the next download link.

Don't worry if you don't have time to work on this challenge on one of the days, just post when you're done and I will help you to catch up - until July 31st. That's the deadline.

Everybody who has finished all 12 months by then will get a bonus download: Templates for the months August - December 2013 so you can use your new calendars right away.:))

Now - are you curious about the "look" of the calendars? Let me tell you, picking a "type" of calendar was the hardest part in getting ready for this, lol. But since I couldn't really decide on the best size and format of the calendar, I narrowed it down to three different ones and the choice is yours:

http://www.digitalscrapbookingstudio.com/images/Min/CGD_Januarycalendar_preview600.jpg




one month on a horizontal letter/a4 size paper - not much room for pictures on that one, but you could add a second page on top of it
one month on a vertical letter/a4 size paper - smaller, but calendar part and pictures will fit on one page
a list style calendar with columns for the different family members, letter/a4 size again


As you see I decided against a square format because of the easier printing. All calendars are provided in US (letter format, week starting on Sunday) and EU (A4 format, week starting on Monday) styles. File formats include .psd, .tif and separate .png layers.

Please let me know if you run into difficulties using them in your graphic software, I will try to help if I can.

Here are your download links for January:

***Sorry, download links have expired, but you can find the calendars in my store (https://www.digitalscrapbookingstudio.com/store/index.php?main_page=index&zenid=6b00eacfae2cc0d6425411c48f3177d7&cPath=13_200&sort=1&filter_id=&alpha_filter_id=50) now***

Tomorrow I will pm the links for February to those who posted their page in the gallery and this thread. Since I will be gone and without internet access all day tomorrow, please, be patient, the links might get sent out late, but they will be sent.

Feel free to ask any questions you might have about the proceedings.

Most of all: HAVE FUN! :))

Min - these are awesome!!! Thanks for offering three choices.
I have been making calendars for the last few years - this will so help me get them done before December 24th! LOL - WHAT? I was a whole day early :)

Hi Nana! Welcome to theStudio! :DD

Can you let us know which file you are having a problem with and weather you are opening through File>Open or dragging it into your program? I use PSE 5 and was able to open all PSD's and Tiff's with no problem, so I'm hoping if we have more information we can figure out why it's giving you a hassle ;)

I'm so excited about this challenge - such a great idea Min. Thanks so much for hosting. Can't believe that I will actually get my calendar done well in advance! lol :)
I know there is a bit of a gap in the center of the page but that is where I will join the two 11 x 8.5 pages with a bind-it machine. (Calendar is 11x17 but I print them out (or have them printed) on separate 11 x 8.5sheets)
I will also be adding lots more personal info before I finish and print:)

Very strange - my PSE7 wouldn't open the ...calendartemps_JanUS. 1st attempt gave me a message that the file was too large, subsequent attempts said program error (no matter how I tried to open it). The "small" calendar took 5 minutes to update the fonts and I stopped b/c I really don't want to use this one. The exact same thing happens when I try to open the Tif files!

PNG files open fine. I have no problems opening other files/templates! I'm using Windows 7.

I think it wouldn't make sense to only use Christmas kits - as I understand it you can use the calender as Christmas gift - but you don't have to. So make your calendar, dear! Can't wait to see :))

For some reason I cannot change the weekdays and numbers and all. That is a closed tab in my PSD file (I am using PSE10). I would really love to clip papers and all to different days :( Do you know what that is and can you or I change it??

And I hope Min and Manu won´t mind I´ll mix it a little :w

My personal opinion is that you can make any calendar you wish and mainly, if the idea is to give it out as a present. It´s usual to do pages regarding the months and seasons, but I know from my experience, it´s very hard when you´re missing the right photos.

So my suggestion is go ahead and let your creativity flow and create calendar exactly you want :) :((

I am using PSE11 and was unable to open or clip to the Weekdays, Weekdays background, Dates or Dates background so had to leave them the same color as the template. Those showed up as a 'non-editable file' in my program.

I was able to open the files in PSE 10 and create my calendar. PSE 10 cannot use the grouped layers (they are none editable). Can they be left as non-grouped for us PSE users please?

I used White Christmas Dreams by Booland Designs for my January calendar.

I started my calendar in Photoshop 7.0.1 and also was unable to edit the month and week days. That is why I left 2014 off. After figuring out the exact calendar size I decided to make mine in Scrapbook Max 2.0 with the PNG files.

I was having the same trouble and posted to that effect. Just discovered that if you simplify the layer, it can then be manipulated however you want. Hope this helps!

I just walked back in after a looooong day - and wow, what a lot of lovely calendars you have created, ladies.:((:)):DD

I am very sorry to hear that some of you are having trouble with the templates. I did update the first post with an additional download link for ungrouped .psd files, so some of the problems for PSE should be remedied by that.

As for why the files won't open for some of you - I have to admit that I am at a complete loss there. It seems they do open for some in PSE without problems and not for others. :'( I will do some research on this tomorrow.

As for the question about the calendars having to be Christmas themed: They don't have to - the challenge is about creating a calendar in 12 days. Decorate the templates any way you want to. Create a single one for your own use, create them as gifts - you could give them as Christmas gifts, but don't have to, lol.

The February template download links will be sent out via pm in the next couple of minutes.

Min,
Here is my link for the 1st Day of The 12 Days of Christmas in July Calendar. I really enjoyed making the calendar, but had a problem trying to line up the day numbers.
