It's time for my most popular post of the year! Each year I get lots of emails asking when I'm going to share the free CD Calendar Templates that I make each year. The 2019 templates are ready and the links are below for each month.
First, here's a photo using the current year's June template stamped by my friend and fellow Stampin' Up! demonstrator Beth Daniels who's become known for her beautiful designs each year.
Here are the links for the 2019 CD Calendar Templates, which are available free for your use and the template itself is not to be sold. You are welcome to sell your stamped calendars in keeping with any Angel Policy of the stamps you use to decorate them. Each month's PDF will have two of that month's calendar.

Here is a refresher on how I handle the trimming after I print them on our Stampin' Up Whisper White card stock (8-1/2" by 11"). You will not need to trim the left edge -- they will print two to a page. The goal is to trim off the right side so its margin is equal to the left margin. (the final calendar sheet is approx. 4 & 3/4 inch wide (so your first cut is 4-3/4" from the left side of the vertical sheet), but that width can vary based on how wide the interior of your CD case is.) TIP: Make sure it fits inside your particular cases before you cut them all. Once you have cut the width, you then cut the card stock in half vertically and each calendar page is 5 & 1/2 inches tall. Again, adjust as needed based on your cases.

All 12 months, even when decorated, will fit inside the case with the current month moved to the front. The key is to not add too many embellishments that make them too thick. Also — since embellishments you may add are all on the top half of the calendar sheet, you can turn half of the stored months upside down if needed so the thickness issue is more balanced in the case.
