Fall Into Planning

Well it’s official, I’m a card-carrying planner addict and have fallen for the planner craze like a love struck teenager! With Fall upon us, a new Filofax Original A5 Patent Fuchsia waiting to be moved into and an unopened September Planner Society kit, I recently found time to play.

The first order of business was to create some laminated dividers and a dashboard. I selected some pretty colors that would go with the patent fuchsia, but still carry me through Fall.

Originally, this A5 was going to be my daily planner, a place for me to track my dailys, like To-do lists, shopping lists, fitness, etc so I created these custom inserts. I quickly found that since I wasn’t carrying this planner around with me, it wasn’t a system that was going to work for me. I’d find myself out in the world wondering what I was supposed to pick up at the grocery store, while the shopping list sat in my pretty planner at home!

Just last weekend I reformatted these inserts for a personal Kate Spade that I love and carry around with me everywhere, but I’ll blog about that at a later date.

I used a few of my own planner clips, ones that I carry in my Etsy shop,  and some of the yummy items in the September Planner Society kit, including that awesome hand sketched planner girl card that I turned into a dashboard, to prettify my planner and give it that lived in feeling.

“Why have 1 planner dashboard when you can have many” is what I say, so I made another using more of that ridiculously cute Planner Society paper and embellished it with stickers die cuts from the kit. I even cut out one of the sketched girls, gave it a splash of watercolor, laminated it and created a custom planner clip!

Thanks for reading and sharing in my original A5 set up.

    That is gorgeous! I love everything, and you really can never have too many dashboards and dividers! I have two dividers for every month at the moment. 🙂
