Calendario Tamaño Classic 2 Páginas Por Mes - Classic Two Pages per Month Calendar

Español
Comparto con ustedes este calendario mensual para planificadores tamaño Classic (5,5 por 8,5 pulgadas). Los elementos del diseño fueron tomados de los templates oficiales de este sitio. Tiene varias cosas que me resultan útiles: una columna vacía a la izquierda (al principio de cada semana) y muchos renglones para agregar notas o comentarios. Es bastante simple, ese es el objetivo, pero se puede personalizar antes o después de imprimirlo. Podés tomar el archivo editable y traducirlo o cambiarlo como quieras. Agrego unas páginas de notas por si querés imprimirlas en el reverso del calendario.
Espero que te resulte útil. Aguardo comentarios.

I share with you this monthly calendar for Classic size planners (5,5 by 8,5 inches). The design elements come from this site´s official templates. It has some things I find useful: a lined column at the begining of each week and many lines to add notes and comments. It´s pretty simple (that´s my goal) but very customizable, before or after printing. You can take the original file and translate or chage it the way you want it. I add a lined notes page if you want to print them in the back of calendars.
Hope you find it usefull. Please comment

A daily scheduler

I adapted this from Balanced Life for Circa by Julie Morgenstein as I wanted it customised to suit my own needs. I print it on an A4/ Letter size paper in '2 pages per sheet' mode and then slice through it and put it in my Circa planner.

Usage advice: 

Please feel free to create your own customisation using this.. The 'Slider for Daily Routine' and 'Slider for 3 Weekly Outcomes' may seem a little confusing. Actually that is where I slide in my circa punched halves of 3x5 notecard where I have written my key elements of a'daily routine' on one half and on the other half, the '3 major weekly goals/outcomes' which i am aiming for that week. They help me stay focussed through the day.

Review: M by Staples™ Arc System Desktop Punch


No review of the Arc notebook system is complete without looking at the punch. I still find the notebooks to be a very good value, but unless you want to be tied to Staples for buying paper you will want one of these. I noticed that this punch tends to be less expensive than other brands of punches of comparable quality. I have been able to punch the advertised 8 sheets of paper as well as thinker materials including thin cardboard. The only problem I found is that the two arms can lock down, but the lock doesn't always stay locked. Overall I really like the punch and I have not been disappointed with it.

It creates an agenda for a given year and a given language in the Filofax Personal format, on a A4 page, three sheets per page. Just cut and punch the sheets, and close them into the binder.

DESCRIPTION & USAGE:
It's a python script that automates the process of creation a planner in Scribus.
Just unzip the script and copy it into the directory ~\usr\share\scribus\scripts\ (or something similar, depending on your operating system). This way you will have in Scribus a new menu item into the menu [Script] - [Scribus Scripts] : 'SamAgenda'. Click on it and enjoy.

This script take a bit longer time to elaborate the full document, so don't be hurry. Take a look at the progressbar at the bottom of the Scribus main window.

Update: version 0.2
- Discarded the 'calendar' module importation. The standard python module 'calendar.py' seems to be not fully updated on some operating systems (thanks to ygor at diyplanner.com for his great collaboration).
- Added a counter at the upper right side of the page.
- Some minor bugs resolution and cosmethic changes.

Wavy weeks

Month- or year-at-a-glance with days of the week following a sinusoidal curve. March-December 2010 on 12" square scrapbook-sized paper.
Created these pages to track baby milestones for a scrapbook but thought others might be interested in the "wavy weeks" (inspired by W. Bradford Paley's 2007 planner: http://wbpaley.com/brad/index.htm).

Thumbnail: 
Wavy weeks.png
Usage advice: 

You can generate your own "wavy weeks" string using the linked Google spreadsheet (just change the dates in the first worksheet). Or make your own spreadsheet with dates in the first column and fill the second column with this formula: =CONCATENATE(REPT(" ",(3-ABS(WEEKDAY(A1)-4))*2),(DAY(A1)))

Pretty Floral Week at a Glance

These are 2 slightly different spreads of a week at a glance, with a purplish floral embellishment. The days of the week go vertically down, with columns across the pages for different things.

There are boxes on each day to write in the dates. I am not sure how to make this into a form that others could type text w/ nice fonts into.

Come see more designs on my blog: cutediyplanners.blogspot.com

Thumbnail: 
Week at Glance 1 Blank Purple.gif
Usage advice: 

The first form has the columns labeled as such: 1) To Do This Week; 2) Appointments; 3) To Each Day; 4) Lunch & Dinner Plans; 5) Health Log; and 6) Accomplishments!

The second form has no labels for the columns except for the first one on the very left: To Do This Week.

This is made to print landscape on 8-1/2 x 11 paper (be sure to print the same image on both sides of paper, making sure the 'top' is facing the same direction), and then to cut in half to 'Classic Size' before 3-hole punching or comb-binding.

This is what I am using now, and it has been very useful so far. :)

Agenda Semanal 2010 en español - 2010 Spanish Weekly Calendar

Agenda semanal tamaño A4.
A4 Spanish Weekly Calendar.

Thumbnail: 
agenda a4.png
Usage advice: 

Hice esta agenda semanal tomando prestado el modelo ya publicado en este sitio. Es fácilmente traducible a otros idiomas mediante "buscar y reemplazar". Yo la imprimí en doble faz y la mandé a anillar junto con otros formularios. Un detalle: los días de la semana no tienen el número correspondiente (por ejemplo "lunes 4 de enero") Era demasiado trabajo hacerlo en la computadora, así que opté por escribir los números a mano (es más divertido). En otro post pondré los formularios que hice y las carátulas para que puedas aprovecharlos.

I made this calendar borrowing a popular model from this site. It's in Spanish but it should be easily translated by "search and replace". You can print it in double side and ring-bound it with other forms to made a good planner. Just a detail: the week days don't have the number, it was a lot of work doing it with the computer so I preferred to add it by hand (more fun). I'll post the other forms and the covers so you can use them too.
