2022 Calendars – the New Year is Right Around the Corner

These last few months of the year always seem to fly right by. A new school year has started, autumn is almost upon us, and before we know it the new year will be here. Get a jump start on getting your planner set up for the new year with the printable 2022 Calendars.

Check out the 12 different printable calendars for 2022. Choose from yearly or two different monthly layouts. All layouts come in two sizes with your choice of a Sunday or Monday start day so you can customize your planner to work for you.

Bringing Back an Old Design for the 2022 Calendars

In case you missed the release of the 2021-2022 Academic Calendars this year I’ve decided to do something a little different with the calendar design. Usually, this is my favourite part of the design year. Mixing things up and creating a new design for the coming year.

The end of 2020 was crazy for me and my family. We were adjusting to new routines, we moved 10 days before Christmas, and I already knew that 2021 was going to be the year I gave this little ole site a major overhaul.

So, knowing all this was coming down the pipe, I put up a poll in the Scatter-Brain’s Guide Facebook group asking what everyone’s favourite past calendar design was. Instead of creating a new design, I decided to give an old one a refresh.

This way, the other planner pages, like the weekly and daily pages, are already made and ready to be used. Which has freed up the time I needed to start getting the printables organized in a way that makes them easier to find.

So I hope you enjoy the refresh of the Understated Rainbow design.

Do you need a 2022 Calendar? Here 12 options for you to choose from. Three different layout, in two different sizes with your choice of a Sunday or Monday start day. All ready to print and be added to your planner right now.

The 2022 Calendars

The refresh of the Understated Rainbow design ended up being a little bit of a blending between the original and last year’s Jewel Toned Quarters desgin. The fonts and colours are still true to the original and I kept each month in a monochrome design.

The difference between this calendar and the original is that instead of making the grid colourful, I opted to keep it grey and make all the numbers and fonts the colours. The result is a fresh look that still maintains the charm of the original.

I hope you like it!

2022 Year on a Page

First up we have the year on a page calendars for 2022. Here is where you also see the first difference between the original and the new ones. Back in 2016 when I first launched the Understated Rainbow calendars I only made calendars with a Sunday start. Now you get your choice of Sunday or Monday.

Once upon a time I couldn’t see much use to a year on a page. Occaisionally I would use it to check what day of the week a certain date fell on. Other than that and circling birthdays, I wasn’t sure what to do with them.

Now I use them for so many different things. I often have two or three in my planner because I use them so much.

I highlight special dates, non-school days, block off vacation times, use them to track new habits, and a variety of other things. So if you’ve ever found yourself on the fence about whether you need one or not, just think about what you might need to map out long term. Or what you might want to track for the whole year.

Two Pages Per Month Calendars

This is one of the most popular planner layouts here on the blog. It’s not hard to see why. Two pages per month allows for more planning room. And here you’ll see the changes I mentioned above.

Because I blended the Understated Rainbow colours and fonts with the basicy layout of the Jewel Toned Quarters, these news ones have a lot more room for notes. The notes column is still there, with a dot grid. But in addition to that, wherever there was an empty date block, I removed the grid and filled the space with dot grid too.

If you’re using the half-size, be sure to read the printing instructions below before you print. And if you think having the instructions in a downloadable format would be helpful, let me know in the comments below.

Single Page Per Month Calendars

This layout is a classic and it’s fantastic for using in different ways. It’s the perfect size for those who don’t plan much on a monthly calendar. I know many people use these ones for specific themed planning. Things like meal planning, activity planning, fitness planning, and so on.

Even though I don’t normally use this calendar layout in my planner, it’s one I tend to print multiple copies of. I use the letter size version as our family calendar and another one for collecting meal ideas. I use the half-size version for project planning and hang a second copy on my office wall to help me plan ahead.

Just like with the version above, these ones have more notes space than the original and if you’re going to use the half-size, be sure to read the printing instructions carefully.

Where to Find Matching Planner Printables

That concludes the collection of 2022 Calendars. Now I bet you’re wondering where to find the other planning pages that match this collection. Just click the button below to hop on over to the Understated Rainbow Collection page.

There are a couple of things you should know before you go. First, there aren’t many Sunday start weekly planners in this collection – yet! They are coming. I’ve been working on getting them together. I plan to publish a post with all of them in it as soon as they are all finished, but I’ll also be adding them to the collection page as they get finished. That is coming soon.

Second, that collection page is missing a few pages. You can find the teacher and student planning pages in the post I’m linking below. This collection is the first collection page that is getting reorganized so check back often to see what changes are being made and if any of the Sunday start weeklies have been added ahead of their post.

Lastly, I just wanted to invite you to come on over to the facebook group. I’ve got a couple new challenges up my sleeve that I’m going to be sharing there soon. I hope to see you there!

Until next time,

Happy Printing!
