December 2016 Monthly Cover Overlays & Universal Extras - 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 went with neutral colors that I felt best suited the winter season. I just love the icy blue colors with pops of gold and silver. I hope you love it as much as I do! If you have any questions of how to use the Universal Extras, go to this post HERE where I posted several pictures of how I used them in all 3 of my planners.

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 ay of the week before an Erin Condren.

Click on the actual picture for the jpeg file and click the links below the picture for the pdf and studio3 file with the cutlines included for your Silhouette Cutting Machine (this is the exact bundle I bought). 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 (No Slit).

  1. Beautiful as always.

    Is there any way to use a circuit for cutting this?

    1. I suggest you watch this video. This video is very informative and shows you exactly how to convert a Silhouette file into a Cricut file. She even used one of my printables to demonstrate the process. Best video I have seen on YouTube.

  2. Would you do a Sticker Sheet with To do ; Today ; Goals headers? I find I am using those the most and never having enough? please :)
    Loving your designs ! Have a great day!

    1. Do you want Headers for the weekly pages or the monthly sidebar?

    2. for the weekly pages:)if possible . Thank you

  3. How do you use the overlay? Do you print it on transparent sticker paper?

    1. I print mine on regular sticker paper and trim around it with scissors. I would not do transparent because then you would be able to see everything behind it. If you look at the July 2016 Monthly Cover Overlay post, I did a pictorial showing you exactly how it lay it down in my planner.

  4. this is beautiful. I just recently got the Happy Planner mini since my old happy planner was destroyed by my roommates dog (sad day). Any plans to start doing layouts for the mini? Still plan to use your stickers and just trim them down or resize what I can to fit in my new planner :) I just love them

    1. Thank you so much. I am not sure if I will be doing any sticker samplers or monthly overlays for the Mini Happy Planner. I have so many planners and I seriously don't ever know what I would use the Mini Happy Planner for. It might change if there is a big enough request for them though. I will for sure let you know if I do decide to start though. :)

  5. Such a pretty overlay and great extras! Thank you, Jessica!

    1. You are so welcome. I just love the change and love the way they look in my planner.
