Single Page, Dated 2019 Calendars, with Sunday and Monday Starts!
Whew! For a moment there I was worried that these would never be finished. It’s been a roller-coaster of an adventure creating these, but the new calendars are FINALLY ready! I’m kicking off the release of the dated 2019 calendars with the single page per month editions. In years past I’ve always started with a year on a page calendars, but I couldn’t wait to share these ones with you. I’m so excited for you to see them. I hope you enjoy them as much as I enjoyed making them! Ready to check them out?
The first round of the dated 2019 calendars.
As I mentioned above, there was quite the journey to get these finished up. I used as much information as I could from the Readers’ Choice survey, read and organized all the comments and feedback, and tried to use as many of your suggestions as I could to help create the new calendars. Some of the more popular requests were:
- bright colours
- bold colours
- easy to read, but fun fonts
- more note space
- larger day boxes
- one colour per month
- Monday start
I spent the last few weeks trying to come up with something that would check as many of those request boxes as possible.
On top of all that fun stuff, there was quite a bit of hair pulling and, being totally honest, more than few tears of frustration. I’m using new design software which took a little getting used to, but in the end made making the calendar a much smoother and quicker process. There were quite a few behind the scenes glitches and issues that happened, including the software I use to combine the PDFs into one file, garbling them all up. It was starting to feel like I would never get these ready for you. But, ready they are and I’m thrilled with how they all turned out and I hope you are too!
Single Page Per Month 2019 Calendars
I always start with colours, as I find the colours help set the tone for the fonts and other design elements. Whenever I think of bold and bright colours, I tend to think of warm sunny places, leafy rainforests, and beautiful, tropical birds. So I took my inspiration from tropical plants and places. If you follow me on Facebook or Instagram you may have seen the sneak peek graphic I shared a little while ago.
For 2019 I really wanted to keep the vibe fun and lighthearted but still retain all the function that I try to pack into my calendars. I think the colours and the fonts do a good job of creating the vibe.
Next on my list was addressing the need for more note space, especially on the single page calendars and to try to figure out if I could make the day boxes any larger than I usually do. Which I did, but it meant changing how I usually approach making the calendars. I was able to create a notes section on every month (some months even have two) and by adjusting where the monthly titles went and adjusting it month by month, I was able to make the day boxes a smidge bigger. They’re as big as I can make them and still have them fit on a letter size page.
What do you think? Do they check all the boxes?
Grab Your Single Page Dated 2019 Calendar
As always, I made sure to make both full and half-size versions as you will see below. This year I also made a Monday start version of each!
There you have it! The 2019 single page per month calendars are here.
The two page per month calendars will be coming out later on this week, and I’ll be sharing the yearly calendars plus some yearly planners on the weekend! Now that I’ve (fingers crossed and knock on wood) worked out all the kinks in the process things should go much more smoothly as I put the finishing touches on those ones.
Now It’s Your Turn
I really hope you like the new calendars! It was so much fun trying to pull all your suggestions together into one design. I’d love to hear your thought about the new designs for the 2019 calendars. Drop me a line in the comments below and let me know what you think.
OH. MY. GOSH! I LOVE THIS!!! It’s super cute!!!
Gorgeous (as always)! Will there be a two pages per month 2019 calendar?
Hi Katherine, thank you so much. Yes the two page ones are already up on the blog. Sorry for the late reply. Wrapping up our homeschool year took a little more of my time than I thought it would this year.
Are there 2019 monthly calendars that are portrait orientation? I can’t seem to find them if there are…
The portait ones are taking a little longer to make, especially in half-size. I need to play with the layout a little more before I share them.
I love your calendars and came to get a jump start on next year. Love the new single page per month calendars but when I try to print them they print one large and one small calendar of the same month on each page. They look fine in the print preview but they do not print properly. Any ideas? Thank you!
Hi Kristen, I’m so sorry I’m late replying to this. I’ve never run across that issue, but I’m happy to try to help fix it. What program are you using to print them?
I seem to be having the same problem. Fine in preview but something goes wrong when I open the file to print.
Hi Joy, I’m so sorry about the issues! If it’s not too much trouble could you let me know what operating system you’re on and what program you’re using to print? That might help me narrow down the issue.
Ahh!! I’m so excited that you have a Monday start calendar AND it’s available in the half page version AND it’s one page/month. It’s a planner dream come true. THANK YOU!!!
I’m so happy you like it Maria! Please let me know if there are any other pages you’d like to see.
Are you going to be offering the year on a page again for 2019? I loved printing it as the last page for my planner.
Hi Kalina, yes I am. They came out last along with the Academic year on a page. You can find them on the Blog page. 🙂
Thank you for putting your blood, sweat and tears into this and sharing so generously and freely with us. Love.
You are very welcome! I hope you enjoy using the printables!
Hi! I love your calendars so much! Thank you very much for your time and talent making them and know they are greatly appreciated! Has anyone else had trouble with the pdf file for the 2019-Calendar-Single-Half-Size 2.pdf being corrupted and not printing out or showing in the print preview what it actually looks like digitally? I’ve tried it a 3 times from new downloads and everything and still the same. I took a screenshot too just in case it would help to see. Thanks so much!
Hi Kelly. I am so sorry about the issues with the PDF. If it’s not too much trouble I’d love it if you email me the screen shot so I can see what it’s doing. I’ve tried on multiple computers to duplicate the issue and I just can’t seem to get it to repeat the problem. My email is alli (at) scatteredsquirrel (dot) com.
I really enjoy your calendars. I was wondering, do you have a 2019 calendar in Portrait orientation instead of Landscape?
I’ve been a fan for years and I love your stuff. I recommend your sight to everyone!
These are awesome! It is so hard to find Monday Start calendars. Thank you!
Thanks so much! These calenbdars are so beautiful!
Is there any way to get a single calendar Sun-Sat in a portrait layout, versus landscape? They would fit perfectly in my little binder-folder without having to turn the page sideways.
Thank you for these fantastic calendars!
I am looking for the new calendar from you.. Thank you for making these..
I just want to thank you for your free monthly calendars. They are a huge help to my family. I print out an entire year at a time. Each month, I tape one to the front of the fridge and write in our family dinner plans as the month goes along. I end up with an entire season of meals recorded before I take all the pages off the fridge, staple them together and put them away for future reference. I’m on year 3 of your calendars like this. Your calendars are an essential part of helping us eat healthy throughout the year.
Thank you so much for always putting this together – I have been using your monthly dated calendars since 2017 and they have helped me stay on track, especially with due dates for my bills.
Happy new year! I wish you a great and fulfilling 2019
Happy New Year to you too Sarah. I’m so happy you like the calendars and that you’re finding them helpful each year. :-).
Hi! I’m trying to print out the rest of the 2019 calendar which I need in landscape orientation, is that an option? Your images show it looking to take the whole space of a landscape sizing, but it prints out in portrait. Also, where is the new 2020 calendar? I need that in landscape as well.
Hi Bethany, I’m sorry to hear that the calendar isn’t printing right. Did you check your printer settings to make sure that landscape orientation was selected. Sometimes, if it’s not, it will print portrait instead, at least that happens with my printer. The 2020 calendars were released earlier this year. If you search for them using the search box at the top of the side bar the post they are in will come up. I put all the 2020 calendars into one post this year to make them easier to find. I hope that helps.
Thanks! nice design with max space for filling boxes in. Do you have a 2020 calendar ready to use too?
Hi Natalie, I do have a 2020 calendar ready to go. Just type 2020 into the search box at the top of the side bar and it will bring up the post in the search results.
