This set includes a total of 72 cards! The individual card files are great for digital layouts and digital project life spreads and can easily be recolored (using the paint bucket tool in photoshop) to fit your project.
Kit includes 3 different styles provided in both 3×4 and 4×6 card sizes:
- one set of abbreviated month cards (JAN – DEC) provided as PNG files
- one set of months by number (1 – 12) in grey provided as PNG files
- one set of months by number (1 – 12) in black (png)provided as PNG files
I print these cards out individually (once my journaling is ready to go) using this handy print template that’s included in the kit. This template is also available, separately as a free download HERE. See this post for detailed instructions on how to use it.
And speaking of this print template, a customer asked for print guides with rounded corners and I finally got around to updating the templates with that.
inspiration from the creative team
The month in review cards are ideal as inserts for pocket page scrapbooking, but they can also be used as elements on digital layouts and I love the diverse and imaginative ways the creative team used them in their art submissions!

I’m happy to report that this Type-A, cannot-function-without-a-schedule-control-freak, is surviving our no schedule summer. Most surprising? Our days have been relaxing, fun and even…productive. Maybe what my husband has been trying to tell me all these years really is true: sometimes no pre-planning is required for things to work out nicely.
Lots of crafting is happening right now. Madeline is drawing and reading. Audrey is obsessed with rainbow looming. And me?
I’m working on filling in the gaps in our 2013 Project Life album. My goal is to wrap this one up before the end of summer.
I’m working on making the album more interactive with QR codes so we can watch video clips as we flip through the album. As much as I love photographs, there’s nothing quite like being able to hear their voices.
And lastly, I’m finally knitting the last round of this infinity scarf that I started back in March. Cannot wait to see this finished scarf. Crossing fingers that I don’t mess up the bind off.
I’m still working my way thru 2013.
This is Week 39. The photo series of Audrey along the top is one of my favorites. I will probably come back to this to add a “Dear Audrey” note later on. There’s a lot going on in this spread, color wise. I usually prefer to focus on one or two dominant colors otherwise the layout feels disjointed (and distracting) to me.
In the past, this photo would have gone into the album as a black and white print. For reasons I haven’t quite figured out, I actually prefer this photo as color, even with the crazy eclectic mix of patterns. The white border I think helps to keep the busyness somewhat contained.
And this is currently my new favorite way to showcase two photos taken in sequence.
All photos from Weeks 39 – 41 were taken with my iPhone 4S and edited using PicTapGo or in Lightroom using Replichrome by Get Totally Rad!
Hi everyone! Kelly here bringing you this month’s edition of the picks from the press gallery. Each month we take a look through the layouts and projects in the Paislee Press gallery and on instagram and bring you the ones we find most inspiring. A little eye candy for your Sunday morning!
The first pick for today is a layout by catsaunders that we found on instagram. She used press plate no. 39 to create a project life insert of her gorgeous boys.
Next up we have a layout by smallmoments called sunset. She created this layout using downtime. I love The strips of paper here and I love how the colors in the photo really pop against the background paper.
And finally we have a project life spread that we found on instagram by sparlethots. She used sunny days ahead and the week in review cards. I just love all her project life spreads. This is no exception!
I hope you’ve enjoyed this month’s picks and as always, we would love to see what you create with your Paislee Press products. So please feel free to post your projects in the Paislee Press gallery at The Lilypad or post your projects on instagram using the hashtag #paisleepress.
