Happy New Year’s Eve! I’m actually shocked I managed to get my 2018 calendar done in time for y’all. I was nervous I would have to put it out late, but here it is! For Christmas I got an iPad pro AND an apple pencil and I was ready to put it to use. I made all the watercolor designs through the Procreate app. Lemme tell you, this app is amazing!! It’s only $10.00 and so powerful. You need an iPad pro and apple pencil to use it but once you start, you just can’t stop. The artwork you can create with it is endless AND you can do lettering on your iPad with it. It can send your files straight to Photoshop or can be saved as pdf, png, jpeg, etc. I am still in shock at the power of this app.
This year I decided to make the calendar 5×7. Last year’s was 8.5×11 and I loved it but it was just a little bit too big. I love the small size of this for hanging on your wall or putting on a desk stand. I printed my calendar on bright white card stock paper. I used a paper cutter to make my pieces 5×7 and then inserted them into the 5×7 photo tray on my printer. You can also just print this on 8.5×11 (if you don’t have a photo tray) and then cut them after. I also have this calendar up in my Etsy shop already cut and ready to ship if you don’t have a printer!
I hope everyone has something fun planned tonight! I can’t wait for 2018 and all that it has to offer. With a new year comes change and growth and I hope to see that in my blog and just life in general! I’d love to see any pictures you have of your calendars so check out the comments section or tag #sprinkledpink on instagram! The printable is at the bottom of this post. Enjoy!
