The 2016 Calendar – Vintage Style

Following my tradition since this blog was new, I’m presenting a new Vintage Style Calendar for the coming year:

The numerals I used to write 2016 are from the 1881 New Spencerian Compendium. Let me know if you are interested in the complete set, and I will consider extracting all of them as png-files 🙂 


Print all the pages on cardstock, I use Canon Matte photopaper (170g). Then attach the calendar frame sheet to thin cardboard, I save all my cereal boxes for this. Cut out the calendar opening in the frame. Then glue a second piece of cardstock to the back of the calendar, creating a pocket where you can insert the monthly pages, and change from month to month. Use glue stick or hot glue for this, leaving the top side open. This piece of cardstock can be slightly smaller than the frame, but large enough to cover the opening well. I also glue a soda can tab with hot glue for a quick hanger to the back of the calendar 🙂 

These files are free for your personal use and enjoyment. Go to the download folder below to grab your high quality copy 🙂

  1. A very Happy New Year to you all there, and thanks sooo much for everything in the old one. Hope the new year will be a really good one for all of you and you´ll all be blessed with good health and joy all yesr. Take care sweet lady.

    1. My Dear Maryann! I hope you and your lovely family have had a great fall and a wonderful Holiday Season! I was thinking to send you a personal greeting for Christmas, but I had to put many things on the backburner, due to too much going on in November and December. Please know that you were all in my thoughts, and I wish you a truly amazing New Year, and hope that 2016 will be the best year ever! Lots of love, light, hugs and kisses from me and the girls 🙂 xoxoxo

      1. Please don´t exxcuse, I know only too well how it is, as we´ve had sooo much bad health and soo much going on here ourself, so I haven´t even got any christmascards made or sent out. I only managed to make one, which my daughter in law grabbed right away as I wouldn´t know, who to give it among soo many anyway she said LOL. So let´s just hope, that this new year is a great start to a much better year, where we can all get a great start from scrratch and hopefully without anymore bad health to anyone here LOL.
