With spring in full swing and summer on the way, it’s officially event season! Weddings, graduations, barbecues, you name it. If you have a special occasion or event planned, I’ve got a cute, simple printable to add some extra fun to your invites. These mini calendar cards are easy, practical, and downright adorable.
I love it when invitations or cards come with a little something extra inside: these date cards are a fun extra piece that an invitee can easily put on their refrigerator or slip into their planner as a reminder. Plus, these cards aren’t event-specific, making them super versatile! Use them as part of your “save the dates,” graduation invitations, or even just a last-minute get together.
This is such a great time of year! The warmer weather and having the sun stay up extra late makes it so much easier to get outside and get together with friends and family. This week I’m meeting up with one of my girlfriends to go hiking after work—that’s right after work. Having time to do outdoor activities on weekdays always feels like such a luxury. Maybe I should just live in Alaska in the summer and Argentina in the winter—I could be the most productive person in the world!
What fun spring/summer activities do you have coming up?

Super cute, thanks!!
Just an idea, they could be customized with stickers relevant to the event.

Sorry your having printer issues! Hope you get it figured out soon.

These are SO cute, Mandee and I really appreciate all your free printables! Pinned these cute calendars for sure! Any chance you could make a version without the “join us”? That would be perfect for scrapbooking, Bible journaling and paper crafting 🙂 Thanks again!
MandeeMay 11, 2016 at 8:31 am (7 years ago)
Thanks Keri! Glad you like them. 🙂
You know, that’s a really good idea! I added another version to the download without “join us” just for you. Enjoy!

I love the idea but I can’t download them to my computer. I don’t know why!!!
MandeeMay 13, 2016 at 12:27 pm (7 years ago)
Hi Jodi. What seems to be the problem?
When you click on the download button, it will take you to the file in Google Drive, where you can download it to your computer by clicking the download icon (down arrow) just above the listed files.
