Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator Karen Robinson | Love Today Planner
The very first item in my basket when the *new* Annual Catalogue went live last week was the Love Today Planner Kit. As soon as I saw it in the catalogue it jumped to the top of my
wish want list and I have some pretty big plans – pun intended 😉 – for it over the coming year.
I’m trying to do a lot more with my Stampin’ Up! business this year and I really, really needed something to help me keep on top of everything and I’m hoping this planner will be the tool that keeps me on track and stops me feeling too overwhelmed when life gets crazy 🙂
There are tons of ideas out there for how to set up, decorate and use planners, I really didn’t realise how popular they were until I started looking for a few ideas for myself and I am by no means an expert but I thought you might like to see how I’m going to use mine and I thought I’d start with the monthly overview for June.
I only received my planner this week and I’m still working out the layout and have more things to add, but so far my month is looking pretty busy 🙂
I did add a few stickers and do a little stamping using the Tabs for Everything stamp set. However, I can see my planner is going to be blossoming into a highly decorated thing as I become more comfortable with adding those elements – adding anything other than writing is still a very new experience 🙂
This is the two page spread for this past week and because I want to use this for my Stampin’ Up! business as well as the rest of my life, I decided to use some washi tape to divide the weekdays in half to keep it more organised and I love the pop of colour the washi tape adds 🙂
The tape I used for these pages is retired washi from the Cool Treats Suite but I’ll definitely be adding the new washi packs to my next order as I like how quick and easy it is to add and there are nice thin ones in each pack that will be perfect for my planner.
The large pocket and pocket pages are going to be the daily “to do” areas in my planner. I cut some lined notepaper to 4″ x 6-1/2″ and stamped on the top of each page. Each one will have a detailed, timed schedule of tasks I want to complete that day and as I’m still working out a realistic time allocation for some tasks, some of them will roll over to the next day when I write-up the following days “to do” in the evening.
The pocket pages are going to be used as an inspiration board – but without the pictures unfortunately 😦 I want to get to a stage where I’m working several weeks ahead and this will be where I keep ideas for the projects I want to make this week for those future blog posts. Unfortunately, I am nowhere near this stage, but I’m working hard to get there, hopefully I’ll be a bit ahead by the end of this month.
Stampin’ Up! released a video with a bit of a walk through of ideas for how to set up the planner and a look at all the goodies included with it which I thought I’d share with you. I love seeing lots of different ideas and takes on a new item to help me decide how I want to use it, I hope you do too 🙂
I hope you enjoyed this peek at how I’m setting up my planner, I’m really looking forward to it being a key organisational tool in my day-to-day life, but I love that it can also be something completely different for someone else! There are just so many options with how to use this awesome tool, I really think it’s worth a close look if you’re wanting a planner for any reason 🙂
