May 2015 Planner Setup

Wednesday, May 6, 2015

Hello planner girls! I'm super excited to start this blog. I've been so busy, but now that I am on summer break, I have more time to devote to social media! I am going to go into detail about my planner, how I use it and how I decorate it as well! I will be linking shops at the end of my blog as well as within the blog, so keep that in mind if you see anything you might be interested in purchasing for yourself.

Right now, I am using my Kate Spade Wellesley planner in deep pink. This is my unicorn planner (my DREAM planner!) and I am so thankful I have it in my possession! It has a few teeny marks on it, but it doesn't bother me because I am obsessed with this planner! 

I keep a ton of stuff in this planner. Since the Kate Spade planners have so many pockets in them, I like to store things such as the page flags from the Target Dollar Spot, some cute project life cards for decoration and of course some adorable animal clips from one of my favorite Etsy Shops called Kawaii Paperie. (I got the beautiful Iowa clip from StickEWicketDesigns!) I also like to store stickers in the back pocket. I keep my stickers from Cori: The Reset Girl in those pockets as well as some dew drop stickers from Martha Stewart Home Office. (not pictured)

Next up is my planner dashboard. For those of you who don't know what a dashboard is, it's simply something you put in the front of your planner! You can use it for decoration, which is what I do, or you can add cute sticky notes to it for lists or just to simply have. I sell the glitter dashboards in my shop HERE! I make them for pocket, personal, a5 and for the Erin Condren Life Planner. So if you are interested, please check that out! I have so much fun making those. The card that says "Planning Is My Love Language" is from Cori: The Reset Girl! It came with my stickers I ordered from her, and I thought it would add a super cute touch to my planner. The bow clip is from Kate Spade New York. Some Etsy shops sell them and you can also buy them on eBay and Amazon. The black pen is from Jetpens and it is a Uni Style Fit .5mm pen! It is my favorite pen to use. You purchase the inks separately, so you get to choose whatever color you want. I highly recommend these! 

Now, onto my favorite part. Decorating my planner pages! First and foremost, I get a lot of questions about my inserts! They are from Piaric! The paper is super thick and the font is absolutely adorable. These inserts also come in a monthly format as well. To decorate my pages, I typically start off placing my washi tape down. Sometimes I go crazy with washi (usually in weeks that aren't as busy) and other times I go minimal with washi tape use. I like to use stamps too. I get a lot of my stamps from Sweet Stamp Shop (I am currently on their creative design team-WOOHOO!) and I also use stamps from StudioL2E. Both of these companies are amazing so if you are looking for cute planner stamps, this is what I recommend. Next week is my 21st birthday, so I wanted to have something super colorful and fun for the layout. I didn't really stamp this week (besides the small glasses you see in the stickers), but instead I used a lot of my pretty planner stickers! I will link all of the shops at the end of this post since there are just so many to name :) 

I also do similar decorating with my monthly layout. I was using Piaric inserts, but I switched to the Websters Pages inserts. They came with my planner but you can also buy them separately! They are also super sturdy and they have monthly tabs which is ultimately why I use them! The tabs make it super easy to find each month and since my planner is so full, that really makes it easier for me. 

That's it! I hope this post helped any of you that had any questions for me. If I missed something, please comment and I will reply to you as soon as I can. I'm excited that I will be blogging more and more, so stay tuned for more informative posts!
