New Today: Let's Plan!

I've got something a bit different for you today. As the new year looks us in the face you may be considering how to be more organized next year. You may also be considering starting some new habits. Or you may just already be obsessed with your planner (guilty!). In response to some comments and requests I've gotten, I've made a start into designing a few things for the planner inclined.


This first batch of layouts was made to be as basic as possible and also to fit the planner that I myself am using. The pages are designed to be printed on 8.5x11 paper and cut in half. They should then fit most A5 binders.


As I said this is a simple beginning. If what you're looking for isn't here, I'm not surprised :). This is a project I'll be working on throughout the new year, as I have at least myself to satisfy. I'll also be looking to you to let me know what you're interested in seeing, so please don't hesitate to let me know.

Year Overview

As the new year gets under way I'll also start sharing a bit more about how I use my planner. And, spoiler, it's not really to plan stuff.

Also, I have a few things not just for the planner people:



2016 Journal Cards

Enjoy the holidays, and I'll see you back here in a bit!

I am a spontaneous person, however lose myself, when I enter challenges and have missed a couple of wins! With this planner I can see which are due and which are finished, this is something I will try and keep to this year, Thank you.

I will have to follow yours though LOL.

I've also seen weekly planner pages where one side is Monday-Wednesday, split into even thirds, and the other side has Thursday and Friday with their own third and Saturday/Sunday sharing the bottom third of the right-hand page.

Also, a request for Letter/A4 sizes as well as half-letter/A5...even though I'm working on my own planner for this year.

LOVE the calendar journal cards. Nice and simple. I'm not a planner person, but I'm very interested in what you do with your. Perhaps you'll convert me to using a planner. :) Thank you for the goodies Marisa!

Thank you so much for sharing these! I'm a 'planner addict' - finally found one I liked, so haven't designed any myself since digital scrapping, but I feel the urge to plan my own again! Also, I like the monthly calendars to use on desktop designs. Much appreciated!

These look great! I don't use a planner but would like one form my daughter, and they are too expensive to buy :)
