6 Calendars to Make in 2018

Keep 2018 organised, at home and at the office, with these must-have calendars.

Every year in January, we tend to make the same promise; this year, we’re going to be more organised. Then, by March, we’ve already lost track of our appointments, and deadlines are swiftly flying past us. Sure, we like a digital calendar, if we remember to check it. But we think the only way to keep on top of life’s events is to have a visible calendar on the wall – where you can’t help but see it! Don’t make just one; these calendars will help you organise each area of your life. 


The Office Calendar

Make a wall calendar for above your desk at the office. Keep it modern, professional and slick, with lots of room to make notes. If your office is a little more relaxed, fill it with photos of your colleagues to keep it light and fun.

The School Calendar

These days, it seems like kids have more school events than adults have social outings. A dedicated school calendar is a must. Split the dates in sections for each child, and fill in what they have to do at, or after, school each day. As for décor? Use their school photos, drawings, or reports. Keep this one on the fridge.


The Birthday Calendar

Make sure you never miss anyone’s birthday by creating a calendar filled with family and friends’ birthdays. Keep this one where you’ll see it regularly – like the bathroom – and, on each month, make a collage of photos of everyone who has their birthday that month.

The Family Calendar

When the family is so busy, it can be hard to keep track of where everyone is at all times. Keep a calendar in the kitchen that lists everyone’s events, extra murals and activities in one place. Split each weekly column per family member, and spend some time each Sunday night filling it in for the week.


The Gift Calendar

At the beginning of the year, calendars make great gifts. Get one for each of your employees, as a ‘welcome back to work’ gift, or make one for the grandparents, filled with pics of the kids. Plus, you can pre-add in all the important events they need to remember.


The Botanical Calendar

Avid gardener? In January, make a calendar that shows you when to plant the flowers, fruit, veg and bulbs you’d like to harvest throughout the year, so you never miss out on a good bloom.

I hope this tutorial will help you realise your design intent more accurately and efficiently.
You will probably start with a page layout something similar to this

We are going to start with top row of pictures. The following explanation only refers to the top row, we will be dealing with the rest of the images a bit later.
First of all we need to move the pictures next to each other horizontally to see if they will fit in the "Safe Area" of the page. In this example the pictures are too wide and overlap the safe area horizontally. Please note that you will have to leave a decent amount of space between the safe …
