Happy July Everyone,
The start of this month also starts the much anticipated use of my new planner that I purchased when the Rongrong collaboration with Happy Planner came out several months ago.
I needed to replace my cover because my current one had some cracks around the rings. I looked around for something that made me excited, but wasn’t completely enthused about anything I was seeing. I decided to I was going to use my Cricut to make something that made me excited. I chose the teal cover, because I didn’t want to get black .
Destiny loves to sit on my craft work desk whenever I get ready to work – usually right in the center of my work space. Here’s a better shot than the one I posted last week.
I printed out a quote on rose gold vinyl and painstakingly transferred it with some help from Babydoll.
The planner came with light purple or lavendar rings, but they were not big enough to use with all of the things I need to keep in my planner; so I switched out the rings to some gold metal rings I had purchased from Staples a while back.
I had also purchased some new dashboards to use.
I usually keep three months of pages in the planner and then have the monthly pages for all of the months. This time I decided to install six months of pages because I Frankenplan – having a tab for daily & monthly pages, fitness pages,
notes, and work. I had plenty of filler paper that I was going to use for the notes and work sections.
This is a dashboard layout format – something that I have come to like a lot more than the horizontal or vertical layouts. I’ll do a flip-through of the sections of my planner later because I want to talk about somethings that I came up with for decorating my dashboard pages. But I must know, am I the only one starting a new planner this July? What planner are you using? Do you Frankenplan and if so what tabs do you have? Comment below to let me know. Have a safe and great 4th. I’m hosting a bbq, fish fry, and shrimp boil combo with a small crowd of about 35 (what am I thinking? ).
