It's Here! 2017 Creative Planner

My creative planner is just a little something to get you started. A basic format with some color. You fill in the details.

I do date the monthly pages, located at the front of the planner this year. I do not date the weekly pages. You can do that yourself by rubber stamping numbers, or using stickers. I like to use stickers and you can purchase some in my shop. I always add a little something to my orders, so you just might find some stickers and other ephemera to use if you opt in and purchase a planner. If you have the right size circle punch (or don't mind cutting by hand), you can purchase a digital download of the date stickers to cut and glue into your planner.

I print, cut and bind these planners on my own. I currently have one copy ready to ship. Once it is gone I'll make the planners as orders come in.

Here's what it looks like:

Lined pages can be found at the front/back of planner, as well as in between the monthly/weekly pages.

NOTE: Monthly page is HORIZONTAL. It's easy-peasy to turn & fill. Each square measures 1".

Each week has a few words of inspiration.
There's a little ghosting, but once you fill it in, you can't see it. I didn't really notice it until I took these photos. Most of the pens I use ghost a little bit, but I haven't experienced any bleeding. These include FLAIR pens, Sharpie (non-paint) pens, Uniball Singno's, water color pens (I use these to color my doodles) and fountain pens I use for writing on occasion.

I enjoy using stickers, washi tape, and photos in my planner. I also glue-book. Traditional water color will wrinkle and warp the pages, but I generally do not mind as I include so many other elements to my pages. My planner often becomes more of a "what I did" book, than a "what I have to do book."

Here's a sampling of what my pages look like when I'm done:

Ooops. I forgot that quote had some cursing in it. Now you want to find it, don't you?

Some of my pages have been re-bound as I made changes....washi borders will not be in purchased planners.
