I am thrilled to share the 2024 CD calendar templates with you!
As always, these are for you to download for your personal use, for use in a class (even if you are charging for the class) -- and it is fine for you to sell finished, decorated calendars as long as you comply with Stampin' Up!'s Angel Policy for any SU stamps and dies you use. However, the templates themselves cannot be sold as they are provided here free as a service to all who love using them.
They are easy to print on cardstock and then trim. If you download, print and trim the PDFs for all 12 months, you will have paper templates for two full calendars that you can then embellish as you wish. See the end of this post for more tips on printing and trimming, and a source for the cases.
Here is a sample from the 2023 calendar made by my friend and fellow Stampin' Up Demonstrator Beth Daniels, who loves holding classes every fall to make the calendars.
Here are the links to download each month (I post them this way so you have a separate file for each month, making it easier to print what you need). Open the link for each month, and then download them to your computer based on your individual process for downloading PDFs. You will want to print them from your saved file, not directly from the web browser.
Here is the refresher on how I trim the templates after I print them on our Stampin' Up Basic White card stock (8-1/2" by 11"). You will not need to trim the left edge. 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 of the two calendars 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 not to add too many embellishments to each month's sheet or they get 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.
I always enjoy using these and I love hearing from you about these calendars so feel free to comment.
