Planner Pages!

Sooooo, I've finally picked myself up a really sweet 365 planner from Me And My Big Ideas! I've been seeing all the adorable ideas around the papercrafting world, and since I do like to use a paper planner for some things and thought I'd give it a go! I love that I can use the supplies I already have on hand for scrapbooking and cardmaking to decorate my planner.

This planner starts in July, but since I picked it up last week that's where I started it! I recently downloaded a colouring sheet from the Wild Olive blog (so cute!) and I coloured the images with Prismacolor Markers and cut them out to use in my planner this week. You can find the download here! I simply used some tacky glue to stick them on the pages.

Here are closeups of both pages. I do find I actually get around to doing things like booking appointments when I have them written down. I wasn't sure what day we were going to do the lemonade stand, so I put it on a sticky note. I also used a couple stamps from the Crazy Birds accessories and sentiments on my page and coloured them in with coloured pencils.

As well as the colouring sheet, I raided my camping scrapbook sticker stash. Since I knew we were going camping all four days I didn't worry too much about specific planned entries and just decorated. I went back after and entered a few things in, more so I would remember when I worked on scrapbook and Project Life pages!

My 8 year old daughter is crazy about organizing and has been watching planner videos by Belinda Selene on YouTube! Of course she had to get a planner too and has been having lots of fun decorating! My sticker and washi tape stash may have to be replenished soon ;)

We made a trip to the Dollarama store to pick up some 'planner accessories' - coloured pens, black pens and matching pencils, sticky notes and paperclips.

She picked up an alternate cover for her planner - so sweet. Of course, we used 40% Michaels coupons for all this!

Thanks so much for joining me today! I hope you have a lovely, organized week and I hope this inspires you to find more ways to use your crafty supplies!

  2. I love all the details you showed us. I'm thinking it's time to jump on this bandwagon. I print monthly pages for our schedule, and use a small book on my desk for the year, but it would be nice to have everything all in one planner instead of referring to two calendars. Thank you for sharing!
