Mail It Monday: Organization + Free Download

Happy New Year! Happy new logo!
Feel free to grab this image and add it to your blog, or social media page, and share the message of Mail It Monday! Don't forget our hashtag #MailItMonday!

Its the beginning of the year, and I always get excited to start fresh. New planner pages. New calendars. New plans for the next year. New storage. It all makes me giddy! As I continue to work on becoming a card-mailer, not just a card-maker, I wanted a organizational tool to help me keep on top of birthdays, holidays, anniversaries, and other special occasions. I created this perpetual calendar and decided that I would share it with all of you! It is a FREE download. Simply click the link below and you will be able to download the calendar and use it to help remind you to send cards!


The best part about this downloadable PDF is that you can choose the size when you print it! The basic calendar is a standard 8.5x11" size. But you can print 2 to a page, or even 4! The 2 per page size fits perfectly in my A5 planner. The 4 per page size is the same size as an A2 card. Such useful sizes for us paper crafters. Find the one that works for you the best.

Keep in mind as you use these to fit your planners or binders, double check the measurements. I did find that I needed to trim a bit of my paper off to fit the A5 planner. Especially when I punched the pages to fit inside.

The pages are designed to be plain, but I did that for a reason. I wanted the pages to be personalized. This way you can stamp, use stickers, die cuts, doodle, or whatever! I grabbed a favorite old snowflake stamp set for my January page. You could print these calendar pages on card stock for a more study page. Or even laminate them! Endless possibilities! (my favorite)

Each page has a different quote about sending mail, or writing letters, along with the new Mail It Monday logo. I found each of these quotes inspiring and definitely encouragement to continue to mail those cards!

I hope you find this calendar useful and encouraging!

Sincerely Yours,

This is awesome, thank you so much. I have downloaded it and plan to make a few booklets for friends! My church started a new ministry called "Paper Angel Ministry" and I had a stamp made with two little angels facing each other then the name below it (with a little flourish) I make the cards and am loving decorating the envelope with your kit! when they get word that someone had surgery or a special birthday or anniversary, or just sick, they get a card fro me and a volunteer sends them a homemade card from the parish!! It is a beautiful idea and I am so happy to donate my cards for this purpose. I just made a sympathy card for the Archbishop of our diocese because his mother died. And another one with a picture of a sweet couple on the front of the card, the wife turned 91 and is in a memory care unit. The husband misses her terribly. Thank you for helping me embellish the envelopes too!
