I know you've been waiting for these as I have had many comments and emails looking for 2021 CD Calendar templates. With so many of us social distancing at home due to COVID-19, I know you are busy crafting to fill the hours. The image in this post is a beautiful sample for May 2020 made by my 321 Stamp team member Beth Daniels, who blogs as Space Coast Stamper and always hosts a CD calendar class late each year using these templates.
A reminder that I share these templates free of charge for you to use to make as many handmade calendars as you'd like. You may not sell the templates, but you are welcome to sell your handmade calendars in keeping with Stampin' Up's Angel Policy.
Each month's link is for a PDF that includes two calendars for that month. So click to open the link, download and save -- then follow the info below for the suggestions I always share on cutting them to fit the clear cases.
Here is the 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 will fit inside the case with the current month moved to the front. The key is to not add too many embellishments to each month's sheet 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.
Enjoy and reach out if you have questions.
