2017 Printable Calendars – 1 And 2 Page Monthly Spreads

Spread the Love

The Awesome 2017, Two Page Spread, Printable Calendar Is Here!

I have to confess… I have a love hate relationship with this calendar. First, let me tell you why I love it.

I Love It!

We are offering it to all our readers for FREE! I love free. Do you love free? I want our readers to be able to use it now so there are sixteen months available for downloading and printing. September 2016 – December 2017. The calendar also matches our planner design for the year “Orange Blossoms And Butterflies.” This way you can use it with any of our current planners. This excites me. Yes it does, because I love, love, love to have my own planners match up with each other. This way I can mix and match pages and build my planners exactly the way I want them, and they do not look like I pieced them together with a bunch of different planners.

Monthly Two Page Spread

The Calendar Planner is a two Page spread. This grants you some extra room to write that a single page spread simply does not provide. I do not have tiny hand writing or the patience to conform to tiny writing. Unlike many weekly calendar spreads the whole month is set before you; this way the annoying back and forth page turning is avoided. I also added a few extras that I wanted and found missing on most calendar spreads.

Special Extras 🙂

I find these little extras go a long way.

  1. A To Do List – If you look closely there is a space to the left to mark items as done.
  2. Goals for the Month
  3. Notes Section

Extra Special Extra 😀

These were created with a special background transparency. This means you can print the calendar on colored paper or stationary sheets.  Now you can really put your personal touch on the print outs. You can view *examples* in the photos below. If you CLICK the photos a separate page will open for a larger clearer view of the pages. I apologize that the pictures I have of these calendars do not do them justice.

Furthermore, it is just so pretty!

I have really enjoyed working with the “Orange Blossoms And Butterflies” design. Much more than I thought I would. I will be a little saddened to file it away when I am finished with it.

I Hate It!

Okay so, this is why I hate it. It took so darn long to make!!! At first, I was lacking the proper software to add the extras and have a final project that was not blurry in some places. It was also difficult to provide a calendar that allowed me to make the whole spread transparent. My extras kept saving with blocks of white surrounding them.

I was hoping to find a formula to create a perpetual two page monthly calendar spread without needing to take a semester of coding. – Yeah that one never worked out. I can not recall now how many templates and files have been abandoned over the last year and a half. Yes, I said YEAR AND A HALF! I never expected to run into so many difficulties in just making a template frame. In the end, I sorta came up with a template frame that I can live with, but with each new month I had to redo the name of the month, every number had to be painstakingly redone and set for each and every page (actually some months did start with the same days), and the butterfly had to be adjusted. But, two page monthly spreads are my favorite, so I pressed on.

When all is said and done it has been a painful labor of love. I hope some of you will love it too.

HEY!

If anyone out there knows of a formula to make a perpetual two page monthly spread calendar, please let me know. I would be so grateful 😀

What? You do not like monthly 2 page spreads!

That is okay. A monthly one page spread was created. I also snuck in a To-Do List and Notes section and I managed to create a transparent background for you to print on the colored paper of your choice.

There is a catch though. It is a blank page. So, you will have to fill in the year, month and days. Sorry but I did not want my readers to have to wait another year for a stinkin’ matching one page spread calendar. 😉
