August 2016 Monthly Overlay - Free Planner Printable

Hello again! Welcome back for another Monthly Cover Squares Post. I hope you guys still love these as much as I do. I honestly hardly ever look at my monthly spread more than once a week and I love to just decorate the whole thing at once and get it over with. These just make it so easy!

For this month, I was inspired by a picnic blanket or table cloth, but I wanted to keep the colors very neutral because the past few moths have been very graphic in color and I wanted a change. Next month I am doing a Back to School Theme that will be very graphic and fun! I already started to work on stay tuned for that.

I have made a set for the Erin Condren, Regular Happy Planner, and the Big Happy Planner. I decided to only do a PDF Overlay Version again for this month. It is just way easier for me to do it this way. Less time and less pulling out of my hair. :)

For the June Monthly Cover Squares, I had a request from a follower to make the Happy Planner version like I did the Erin Condren version, with the Top Header and the Goals sidebar. So I went ahead and I did as she wanted and I made a version for the Happy Planner. But here's the thing, no one Happy Planner is alike. What I mean by that is the Top Headers and decorative elements are all different and for that reason, the Header might not cover up all of the words and decoration that is already printed on the page. If that will bother you, do what I did in my Happy Planner, cut up some blank sticker paper and cover the printed images above the calendar squares and then lay down your stickers. 

NOTE: With the new Erin Condren Planner that was released in June, there was a difference in the height with the Header at the top of the calendar. I watched a video and she said it was a difference of 3/16ths, so that is the measurement is used. I have an old Erin Condren and I just lined the top of the header with the top of the page and laid it down and it worked out fine. If you have a new Erin Condren and use this printable in your planner, let me know how adjusting the header worked out for you.

Click on the actual picture for the jpeg file, click the links below each picture for the pdf file. You can cut these out buy hand using Scissors (these are the scissors I use when I cut by hand). Also, I get messages asking me about the paper I use to print with. I use and have every kind of inkjet paper they offer in white and clear in the full back. I print these on their Removable White Matte Paper.

I combined all of the available pdf files for each Planner into one download for you, to make your life easier. Here is a preview of the available printables for the Vertical Erin Condren, Happy Planner, and Big Happy Planner:

  1. I know I'm a pain, but I'm confused...first of all I have the new 2016/17 EC not the 2017.... is that what this is sized for?? Also, did you intentionally leave out the silhouette files? Just wondering....

    1. I meant for the new Erin Condren that was just released June 2016. So I guess I am not sure how long it goes for. I assumed that it went until December 2017. As for the Silhouette file, I just made a big old sticker. So all you have to do is print the PDF and cut around the outside and lay it down on the page. Someone was saying that the boxes weren't sized right, so I just eliminated that option. Plus making them this way is sooooooooooo much easier for me!

  2. Hi! Will you be making one of these for September? These are my ABSOLUTE favorite!! I don't think I could ever go back to decorating it another way. :)

    1. I have one made and all ready to go. It will post to the blog on August 17th. :)
