Make Your Own Planner Clips In Minutes

Hello & Happy Monday! I have a quick planner clip tutorial to share with you today.

If you’re like me, you love adding pretty things to your planner. Today I’ll show you how you can easily create your own accessories, like planner clips, for just a couple dollars and in a few short minutes.

The dollar bins at your local craft store are a great place for finding planner goodies. I picked these up at Michaels. They’re wine bottle gift tags and perfect for this.

Cut out the image that you want to make a clip out of. I like to leave a bit of a border around it, but either way is fine.

Once your images are cut out, place them into a laminating sheet, per the manufacturer’s instructions. I use a Scotch laminator and sheets that I got from Amazon.

It’s a personal preference, but I like to run my laminated items through the laminator twice. Once that’s done, trim them out, being careful to leave a bit around the edges so your lamination doesn’t come apart. With your images cut out and laminated, just hot glue a paperclip of your choice onto the back.

You can give your planner clips a more finished look be covering the hot glue using a piece of felt, cardstock, or something like that.

Here I used a small, heart shaped punch out and placed it over the still wet, hot glue.

Lastly, just clean up any threads of hot glue that might be hanging on.

Add your new clips into your planner and you’re all set… fabulous, affordable and unique planner clips that you created in just minutes!

Planner Set Up – On the Go In My Kate Spade

A few days ago I introduced you to my A5 Filofax Fuchsia Patent. I LOVE that planner; it’s a beauty and a great size for my home planner. What I found, however, is that it wasn’t really  working for me as a planner to track my dailys since I wasn’t carrying it around with me. I needed something smaller and little more portable. Something I could toss in my bag and carry around with me.

And suddenly there she was and it was love at first sight. Her name is Kate.

I was lucky enough to get my hands on a Kate Spade Wellesley planner at the outlet not too far from where I work. To be honest, I went in hoping for a rose gold, but got there minutes after the last one was sold and was a little bummed so I got the black. But now, oh my goodness, I could not be happier with the black one!

The black exterior and the pop of the hot pink interior really lend themselves beautifully to my fondness for bright, bold colors.

I’d never had a zip around closure planner but now, after carrying it around for the last couple of weeks, I find that I’m really loving it. This personal sized planner goes with me everywhere and I like knowing that its contents are safely secured inside.

Having a dedicated place to track all of this information has been a Huge help in my daily pursuit to a better me

I gave some serious though to how I wanted to use this agenda. I knew that I wanted to use it to track my dailys, such as nutrition, fitness, to-do lists, shopping lists and personal growth so I reformatted my custom A5 daily inserts to fit the personal size of this planner. Having a dedicated place to track all of this information has been a Huge help in my daily pursuit to a better me.

My daily inserts are 2 pages, but I find that I really only use 1 page on the weekends as I don’t have as many errands and to-dos.

While I do keep a monthly overview calendar in here for quick reference, I won’t be doing a lot of actual “planning” in this planner. I’ll be using it as more of a brain dump. A place to jot down notes, random thoughts, inspiration, and also a place to keep track of online purchases and things that pique my interest that I want to research in-depth when I have more time.

Since we’re already well into October and Dia de Los Muertos is right around the corner, I immediately set about to prettify my Kate Spade with some inserts, a dashboard and a few planner clips. I’m drawn to the imagery and bright colors associated with this holiday and figured that the theme would go well with the hot pink interior color. Side Note:These Day of the Dead clips are currently available in my Etsy shop.

2015-10-10 07.20.34

I needed some stickers to spruce up my inserts so naturally I turned to Etsy and found these cuties by Inky Dinky Printing that coordinated perfectly with my clips… Score!

I’m so beyond pleased with this Kate Spade Wellesley planner and feel that I have finally achieved planner peace, at least for my dailys!

Thanks for reading and as always, I wish you Happy Planning!
