As with any other pastime it turns out there are about a million ladies on the internet who like to post weekly pictures of their planner pages. I didn’t really plan to do that until I found myself thinking, “I really have fun making these pretty every week, it’s a shame nobody else sees them.”
And thus…Pimp My Planner. Sunday shall now be the day I post my pages for the past week (and you’ll get to see how dreadfully disorganized I am in my organization) as well as any links or ideas on the subject that hit me during the week.
Since May is almost over, I thought I’d use my first PMP post to show the general format I use for the whole month as well as individual weeks.
Part of the reason I’m doing this is that I’m currently at work making a planner of my own to sell on Etsy – I realized pretty quickly that paper planners are a really useful tool in managing illness, particularly things like bipolar that affect both your moods and your memory. I’m going to include medication trackers, symptom trackers, all that jazz, as efficiently crafted but still pretty as I can make them. The first version will probably be undated so you can download, print, and go to it any time; then I would like to do a full dated version for 2016, and stuff like that usually starts coming out July-August, so we’ll see.
In the meantime, enjoy! See? I really do use all that washi tape. I use stickers and such from all over the place, and I made a lot of them out of clipart; I’ll list sources that I can recall at the bottom of the post.
Washi tape from Michaels (don’t remember the brand, sorry)
Quotes and Sayings stickers – printed myself, art from sparrowgraphic
Balloon and tree tag stickers part of the Dream in Color collection from Webster’s Pages
Dots and banners from The Reset Girl
Period sticker, Amazon sticker, Day Off sticker made by me (Day Off sticker available in my Etsy Shop)
Round flower sticker downloaded from InkFive
All narrow washi tapes from zakkalover.
Green washi from Artsyville (Unfortunately she stopped selling washi, but her art is still adorable)
Oprah quote sticker and coffee cup stickers from my Etsy shop
The flowers and butterflies came from a 12×12″ sheet of cardstock stickers that I’ve had for years gathering dust, but I can’t remember who made it.
I’m pretty sure both those tapes are Recollections brand from Michaels, but I’ve had both forever so don’t quote me on that.
“Anything” sticker from Dream in Color collection
Miscellaneous flower and butterfly foil stickers by Recollections
Flags by The Reset Girl
Peacock printed from clipart by Decorartistclipart
Die-cut book washi tape from WashiTapeManiac (one of my favorite, favorite tapes)
Script washi from zakkalover (another one of my favorite tapes)
Girl on stack of books and name plate stickers from Santoro’s Gorjuss collection (I have a ton of their sticky notes too, I love the muted colors and the almost-dark-but-not-quite theme)
Typewriter and other vintage sticker elements downloaded from Vintage Glam Studio (lots of freebies)
