Hello March – Planner Layout

It’s been a while since I’ve shared any planner layouts so I thought that the February kit from TPS was as good a reason as any.

The pretty color palette begged to be paired with my nude Filofax, so I reluctantly put away the gorgeous red Kikki K that I carried in February and got busy making this one equally as yummy for March.

As always, I used my handy dandy laminator to make a couple of dashboards and a scrap of that pretty paper made for a great washi card.

2016-02-25 07.14.27

In total I made a dashboard and 4 tabbed dividers from the gorgeous paper that came in the kit.

2016-02-25 07.16.22

I used some of the pretty stickers to decorate my daily inserts. There are a couple of versions of these in the free planner printables section of my blog. Be sure to check them out!

I use my planner as a life tool, not only to track appointments and to-dos, but also to help foster my goal of continued personal growth.

You may have read in some of my prior posts that I’m a huge proponent of CBT, or cognitive behavioral therapy.

If you’re unfamiliar with it, CBT focuses on techniques to help individuals challenge negative thinking patterns and beliefs and replace “errors in thinking such as overgeneralizing, magnifying negatives, minimizing positives and catastrophizing” with “more realistic and effective thoughts, thus decreasing emotional distress and self-defeating behavior”.2016-02-25 07.18.35

Because creating new thinking patterns is an ongoing process, I’ve dedicated a section in my daily planner to it. These are my custom CBT inserts made by Papier My Day on Etsy. I use them to address negative thinking and to work through whatever issue I may be grinding away on. I find it incredibly helpful to have a dedicated place to turn when I find myself struggling with an issue.

And finally, here’s a little trick that I use to prettify that odd area in the back of some of the Filofax planners. If I don’t have a notebook to slip into the slits… Pretty paper to the rescue! I just measure, crease, and tuck it right in. Instant pretty!

As always, thank you for reading and I wish you a beautiful week.

My Week In Color – Hello Fall!

The October Planner Society Kit is the stuff my dreams are made of and I couldn’t wait to jump right in and decorate my A5 Fuchsia Filofax.

2015-10-28 09.40.05

I used a few Project Life cards from my stash to make laminated dashboards and a set of pretty ribbon paperclips, purchased from Rubies and Grace, that coordinated with the kit beautifully.

 

2015-10-28 07.31.41For my weekly insert I used one of the free Planner Printables that I offer here on the blog.

I received my first planner tassel as part of the PSK and couldn’t wait to clip that baby in! I also used a couple of the resin bits that came in the kit and used them to make a flower planner clip.

2015-10-29 09.51.53

After prettifying my weekly A5, my daily Kate Spade needed some lovin’ too so I made a washi card, and used some of the felt flowers in the kit to make 2 rosebud clips (right side). I also added more of those ribbon clips by Grace and Rubies and a couple of cute clips from Peach Pom (left side, fuchsia pom & blue flower). Oh! after watching The Creative Planner, a workshop offered by Christy Tomlinson, I also made my first planner pocket using some of the gorgeous paper from the kit.

Thanks for looking and…

Happy Planning!

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.

2015-10-03 09.20.24

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.

2015-10-04 14.12.46

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.

2015-10-03 11.34.26

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.

2015-10-04 09.46.46

“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.

My Week In Color with the August Planner Society Kit

I gifted myself an extra day off work, to make it a 4 day weekend, so I spent the day hanging out with my Beloved, listing and playing in my planner. I used the August Planner Society kit for next week’s layout and made up a couple of extra planer goodies that snap right into the coils… a cute little pocket and a mini “To Do” dashboard.

2015-09-04 09.05.30

The colors in this kit are positively swoon worthy! And get a load of that pen that looks like a small camera… Adorable!

I used a couple of bows from my stash to make some coordinating clips and a button as a “clasp” for the pocket envelope.

This sweet little card was just begging to be laminated and turned into a mini dashboard that I could move from week to week.

The quality of the paper in the kit is unbelievable and I love finding fun, new ways to use it in my planners. This time I made an envelope style pocket with my Silhouette.

Thanks for sharing in my week in color.

Happy Planning!
