post_2010printcalEasy on your wallet. Easy on our earth.

This is the first in a series of DIY projects I will be creating for I hope you enjoy creating and using this first one as much as I did.

As you may have already guessed from the desktop wallpaper project, I love calendars. Really, any kind–from desktop decor styles to ones I can carry in my pocket or hang on my wall.

What is this whole “Easy on your wallet. Easy on our earth.” line all about? Glad you asked!

Easy on your wallet. Simply stated, this downloadable PDF! I know you’re all over this like white on rice, aren’t you?

Easy on our earth. Yep! I’m hopping on the “eco chic” bandwagon of earth-love like everyone else. Eco chic. It’s not just for the granola eating, and patchouli smelling peeps anymore! I’m trying my best to do my part. Baby steps, I say.

For this project, I’ve used card stock from Neenah Paper called ENVIRONMENT®, but any 100% recycled card stock will make this project a bit more earth-friendly.

DIY: Decor with Function

    Hey Kellie,
    I am so excited to try this out. I am heading to Michaels today so I’ll grab some cardstock. I’ll let you know how I did once I finish!

    Thanks for this,


  2. Erin, I can’t wait to hear how it turns out! Would love to see photos when you are complete.

    Very Nice!
    I would love to print your calendar, but unfortently it’s in English.. Is there a possibility to offer an editable file? So I could adapt it to German language..

    Would be great!

  4. Thank you Maik! At the moment I don’t have an editable version. I’m working on it : )

  5. I found your blog on google and read a few of your other posts. I just added you to my Google News Reader. Keep up the great work Look forward to reading more from you in the future.

    It’s the first time I visit your site : you really have an eye for beautiful design.
    As Maik, I would appreciate to print and use many of your DYO. I am a french speaking Canadian, and I am not at ease sending a friend a card, or anything else, in English. Perhaps, when possible, the text could be presented as a separate piece : this way, we could print it or write it in our own language. Thanks in advance.

  7. Chère Hélène –

    Merci beaucoup pour le message. J’ai reçu quelques demandes sur la création de projets modifiable par les utilisateurs.

    Je promets Imprimables calendrier de l’année prochaine sera modifiable.

    Merci encore pour les paroles aimables!

    Dear Hélène –

    Thank you so much for the message. I have received a few requests on creating editable projects for users. I promise next year’s calendar printables will be editable.

    Thank you again for the kind words!

    Kellie : )
