Default 12 Days of Christmas Calendar Template Challenge - day 1

Hi all,

Merry Christmas in July and Welcome to the second edition of "The 12 days of doing your Christmas calendar presents early this year" template challenge. This challenge will help you to get a head start on creating your calendars for 2015 - and with plenty of time to get them printed and wrapped for Christmas.

For those of you who are new to this, here's how it works:

I will provide you with the templates for your calendars - one template every day for the next 12 days, handed out progressive scrap style: Once you post one, you will get the next via pm. If you finish all twelve on time you will get a bonus - the months August-December 2014 so you can use your beautiful new calendar right away if you want to

Deadline to finish this challenge is July 31st - so you will have a little more than 12 days to do this. ETA: You can start with this challenge anytime until July 31st, I will check for new posts and send out links a couple of times every day.

Here are the January templates (I'm sorry, but this download has expired - you can find the templates in my store now)



With this download you will get three different calendar types in two versions each:
  1. 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
  2. one month on a vertical letter/a4 size paper - smaller, but calendar part and pictures will fit on one page
  3. 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.

Once your January calendar is done (pick the type and format you like best you don't have to do all of them, lol) , upload it to the CIJ 2014: 12 Days of Christmas Challenge gallery and post here in this thread with the gallery link. Tomorrow I will pm those who posted here with the download links for the February templates.

Let me know if you have any questions, but most of all: Have fun!

Thank you! Thank you!! Thank you, Min!!! What an awesome challenge!
I used the January 2014 Mega collection for this calendar LO and the CGD 2015 Calendar photo letter template for January.
I am undecided on the photo at the moment, so leaving that blank for now.

This was so perfect and gets me way ahead of the game!!! I love this idea!

My daughter's culinary adventures into the world of Paleo cooking, I planned on making her a calendar for Christmas with her recipes and pictures of her results. This worked out perfectly!

This should be fun! I decided to use the list style calendar set. I'm a list maker and I thought this might be a fun way to keep track of things for 2015. At least all my pages will be fun to use!

I used Frosty the Snowman from Booland designs.

OK how did I miss this or should I say these posts. Xmas in July I have to read all today! I have not been feeling so great so I stayed away from forum posts and am missing all the fun apparently! I will catch up quickly. Summer time gives me bad headaches off and on with pollen and heat so I will do what I can!

I have a question for anyone who can answer... I may just not be seeing it, but if I have the entire month on 8.5x11 and get it printed, how do you get it bound so the spiral is at the top? All the places I use to print my projects let you upload the top portion for their calendars and they supply the actual calendar part on the bottom with the binding in the center. I am at a loss??

Appreciate any advice... thanks!

First time I've used this sort of template and wasn't sure how to work it...I'll get it I hope for February or March..if not there's all year gggg . I kept the first attempt very simple and it is Summer in Australia in January. I used a photo of my sandman made on Australia Day and a Australian flag painted by my GD. link to gallery http://www.digitalscrapbookingstudio...lenge-jan.html
