It’s here! I’ve finished my 2015 Personal Progress Calendar and it’s better than ever!
NOTE: I forgot to put the instructions in the original download. I’ve put them there, now, but you can also download them here. And, the spelling error on the Journal and Blank pages has been corrected. Sorry. I was so anxious to get these done I put them up too soon 🙂
I’ve had so much great feedback about this project and I know it is inspiring Young Women throughout the Church to work on their Personal Progress. What an honor for me! This year, I’ve added editable text boxes to the calendar months so you can add your ward activities, YW birthdays and more in addition to customizing the monthly goal pages and optional testimony, in review, scripture, journal, plans and blank pages. Yay!
(My next project is my much-requested and downloaded 2015 Mutual Theme Calendars and candy-bar wrappers. Don’t miss these upcoming projects: subscribe via email to this blog. Sign up in the right-hand column.)
My 6×6-inch Personal Progress calendars make wonderful Christmas gifts or New Beginnings handouts for your girls. Our young women have enjoyed making them as part of a Personal Progress activity during the first part of January. How ever you use my calendars, I’m thrilled to be able to help and inspire your girls.
This year’s calendars come in both color and black-and-white versions (perfect for copying on meetinghouse copiers!). In the download you’ll find both a full 6×6-inch cover image plus an alternate smaller cover label you can glue to your choice of patterned paper or cardstock. Some girls might like coloring in the black-and-white cover/pages with colored pencils or markers and others might prefer the full-color images. Or, they can use scrapbook paper and embellishments and the cover label to add their own touch of style. NOTE: If you’re using the color version, I strongly recommend you print using the highest-quality setting for best results. (I love the way this calendar prints on my color laser printer.)
You can make these calendars free-standing (to put on a night stand) or hanging (for lockers). Instructions for both types are included in the download.
I like to bind these calendars using my Zutter Bind-It-All, but you can use Cerlox, rings, ribbon or stitching for yours. Play around and see what works for you. I get my Owire and 6×6-inch chipboard covers in bulk from Amazon, but you can find great deals all over the web. Supply lists and full assembly instructions are included in the download.
This calendar features monthly editable calendars and goal pages plus pages for 2015 plans, favorite scriptures, end of year evaluation, testimony and journaling. Plus, I’ve included a blank page for you to customize!
It’s quick and easy to add your own goals, scriptures, quotes, calendar events and more to these calendars when you use the editable PDF files.
Simply open the PDF file in Adobe Reader (get this free software here) and type your text into the text boxes. (When you use the editable PDF files, fonts, font color and spacing are all set for you. If you want to change them, you will need to open the JPEG files included in the download in your word-processing or photo-editing software and add your own text boxes.) Save, print and assemble!
