September 2016 Monthly Overlays - Free Planner Printable

UPDATE PLEASE NOTE: I recently learned that MAMBI changed the weekly box size of their newest release of the Big Happy Planners. All of the stickers designed on this blog under the Label BIG HAPPY PLANNER, were made using the dimensions of the original Stay Golden July 2016-December 2017 Big Happy Planner. 

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 so excited for Back 2 School that I thought it would be perfect! I posted a preview to my Facebook Page and you guys seemed to like it.

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, cut up some blank sticker paper and cover the printed images above the calendar squares and then lay down your stickers. Or Better yet, cover it with some washi that matches the theme of the overlay. 

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. I tweaked it a little from last month with the help of a wonderful fellow planner named Kathy. I hope that this tweak will work for you. I guess I just need to bit the bullet and buy an Erin Condren, but honestly the amount of money the cost kills me. I can buy a leather Filofax for what you pay for an Erin Condren. And to be honest, I would rather have a Filofax any day of the week over an Erin Condren Planner.

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, Regular Happy Planner, and Big Happy Planner:

If you use any of my printables in your planner, take a picture and tag me @myplannerenvy on Instagram or post your picture on my Facebook Page so I can see them in use. It really makes me happy to see others using my printables, plus it gives me new inspiration on how I can decorate my own planner and improve my printables to make them more universal for all planner lovers. :)

  1. I love, love, love these!!! Simple but pretty. Thank you so much!!

    1. Just saw this comment, didn't realize I never replied. I am finding simple is better. Then people can decorate them how they want. That is the route I am going to take for future printables.

  2. I LOVE these so much. Always patiently waiting for the next months to come out :) :)

    1. That makes me happy to hear. October's just posted on Wednesday.
