A 2014 version of this calendar is now available
Whilst I’ll admit to desperately clinging on to the coat-tails of summer, I’ve seen more than one brown leaf flutter down before my eyes and plenty of bright orange pumpkins in the shops, so we all know what that means!
Moving into Autumn and the long, chill evenings does have an up side though – the chance to settle down to some crafty activities – such as making calendars from your photos of the last 12 months. This is something I’ve done for myself in previous years, and this year I thought I’d share my template with you guys as they’re a great budget-option for christmas pressies!
It’s designed to fit neatly into one of those CD jewel case calendars, although it will work just as well held together with a binder clip. Each page is 118.5mm x 137mm.
- Simply open the template in Photoshop (I believe this will work in Photoshop Elements too).
- Place your chosen photo just above the background layer.
- By default the background to the dates on the calender is solid white, but if you choose you can change the opacity to let some of the photo show through.
- Select the correct date layer, print out, cut out and you’re done!

Ohhh, this is so generous of you – I’m still trying to decide whether to do a calender this year…
Angie10 October 2012 at 19:17
I love your calendars, you should do one!
Millie10 October 2012 at 01:12
I looove this! I was thinking about making one for family and friends! Do you suggest a resolution or size for the images to fit correctly? Thanks soo much!
Angie10 October 2012 at 19:18
Hi Millie – well spotted! I’ve added the dimensions to the post (118.5 x 137 mm) – thanks for spotting
Mariette17 November 2012 at 19:13
I’ve tried this dimension but if I fit 2 per page part of the 2013 is chopped off!
Millie23 October 2012 at 06:24
Hi Angie! I’ve made a “test” calendar in two sizes using your template! I got my prints so I wanted to show it to you. Thanks so much for the template. I’m not an expert in psd files at all and still it was soo easy to use! http://www.flickr.com/photos/milagrosleiva/8115196688/in/photostream/

Thanks, Angie–this template is great! I made “cat calendars” as a giveaway for my debut ebook HOMECOMING, a Wisconsin reunion romance (that happens to feature 9 cats!). Just finished it today. If anyone would like a calendar, just email me: mail at janetwellington.com — AND my ebook is on sale at Amazon for only 99-cents right now. Here’s a link if you want to check it out–I’ve gotten some good reviews for this book of my heart.
Angie7 December 2012 at 00:11
Congratulations on the book!

i like very much the template. Thanks for it. I’d like to modify it for my language. Could you tell me what font did you use and possibly send me the PSD file with texts not flattened?
Eva14 December 2012 at 11:54
Thanks so much for the nice template. Here is what I made of it.

A lovely feel to your work.
I rather like what you have done with calender typographically.
Is it possible to have the type file.
also What font did you use?
Angie29 December 2012 at 22:46
The font I’ve used is called ‘Corbel’, you can get it from here… http://www.myfonts.com/fonts/ascender/corbel/
Hannah24 December 2012 at 20:09
you are the best, this is exactly what i was looking for. now i can make my grandparents the perfect calendar. thank you for ruling so hard.
Angie29 December 2012 at 22:48
A perfect grandparent gift – hope they love it!
Jake25 December 2012 at 19:09
The .psd file is only of January ? How do I get the rest of the months?? And, is there one with regular layout for weeks (7 columns across) ?
Angie29 December 2012 at 22:50
Hi Jake – if you go to ‘window’>’layers’ you should see each month is on its own layer. (And this is the only layout I’ve done).
Stacey2 January 2013 at 11:43

I loved the calender 2013 template which I downloaded from here :
I made 2 different groups of calenders and shared them with my family members in India and abroad.
I have my grandchildren visiting us in India in August and would like to take back with them 2 groups of calenders for 2014.
I know its a bit early but is it possible to have the same template to cover Year 2014 so that I could gift them the calenders bearing their pictures when they leave for canada in September 2013 for use in 2014.
Love your site. Its just awesome. Ranbir Singh
Angie30 July 2013 at 23:41
There will be a 2014 calendar – it should be ready for next month so hopefully will be ready for your visitors
Ranbir Singh31 July 2013 at 08:58
