    What an amazing book! I am looking forward to a very inspired 2014. Thank you so much. Happy New Year!

    I really like this book. I got a 2014 calendar/planner on sale because it is half over. It isn’t the type planner recommended by the book, but you know what? That’s no excuse. I’m just going to adapt and have fun. Yeah, I’m half way through 2014 but that’s no excuse either. Will still give it ago and enjoy the ride.

    Enjoying the book but the bonus content is not easily accessed. Had to download a QR Scanner to access it and then when I went to download the yearly inserts, I need to QR scan them! I thought when I went to the web site I would be able to just download them. Why send me there if I need to scan each page from the book anyway? It’s very frustrating each time I want to go to the bonus material, I need to type in my email again (and again and again and again) there’s no way to check out a link and then use the back button to connect to the next one. The site makes me start all over each time.

    I am not able to access the printable pages here. I get a message that says my email is invalid, even though I am logged into the create mixed media website. I have emailed customer service several times and still have not received an answer to this problem. VERY FRUSTRATED!!

      Hi Kararoxanne555,

      I just emailed the downloads to you. Sorry for all the trouble.

    One step closer! Well, two, actually. I downloaded all the pages and … sit down for this one … bought a journal. It runs from July 2015 to June 2016 so it’s OK for me to start in September. Of course, I bought the book more than a year ago, and am just now getting started. Never too late! Doing the yearly stuff today.

  6. Begin says:

    I have also purchased the book No Excuses Journaling but do not have the equipment to “Scan the QR code to download a copy of this insert.” So will have to just give this part a miss, or can it be emailed to me.

    • Amy Jones says:

      Hi Begin,

      If you enter your email address in the email box at the top of this page, it will take you to the page where the downloads are so you don’t need to scan the QR code.

    There is definitely something wrong with the site! It refuses to take my email address so I can download the yearly pages. I know the address I put in is correct and I am registered. I don’t see how I will get the pages since I cannot scan the code and it won’t let me tell you where you can send them. It looks to me as if this has been a long time problem. It seems as if it would have been iced by 2016!

    • Amy Jones says:

      Hi Angelthreads,

      I just sent you an email with the bonus content attached. Sorry about the trouble with the webpage.

    I’m loving the book, very inspirational and can’t wait to get started in January, unfortunately I too am having problems obtaining any of the prompts to download…very frustrating, and to even comment I have had to set up a whole profile.

  9. Eagle01 says:

    I do not understand how to revieve to downloads!!!

  10. Eagle01 says:

    Good evening. I can you please resend the downloads for the yearly. I may have deleted the message you sent and I am still unable to scan from the book. Thanks.

    • Amy Jones says:

      Hi Eagle01,

      I’ve added the links at the top of the page here. Click on the links and you’ll be able to download and print.


  11. Tussah says:

    I’m still confused. I clicked the link at the top of this page to download the inserts. The PDF is very attractive, but each page has a QR code on it, which prints. I tried clicking one of the codes (to go to a high res version of the page without QR codes?) but it just takes me back to this page. In your book, the inserts don’t show QR codes on them. What am I doing wrong?

  12. Goldenluv1 says:

    I’m trying to download the No Excuses Art Journaling program yearly insert, but the link takes my to the No Excuses Art Journaling Making Time for Creativity instead. I can’t reach the yearly insert pages. Please email to me. Thank you.

  13. Goldenluv1 says:

    I have the inserts. No need to email them to me. – thank you.
