I’m in LOVE with the colors in this month’s kit! vibrant reds, blues, yellows and aquas. Right up my alley as far as color goes. Then there’s the plaid! Not being a super floral-y girl, this is definitely my favorite kit so far!
For this week’s setup, I covered the days of the week and date numbers with patterned flags and added the colored day stickers below them. Then I used my favorite number stamps from Cathy Zielske to stamp the date numbers. Cathy releases some really cool stamps, but supplies are limited, so I’m not sure if she’ll be releasing this one again, but I hope she does, it’s really great! Check Cathy’s shop to see what she’s offering right now.
I put appointments in the center section this week using icons and the little patterned stickers with blanks in the center. In the bottom section, I used the heart flag stickers to make short to-do lists for each day. I’m not sure if I’ll keep up this format all year. I took a break from the Erin Condren Life Planner last year, but I ended up missing the simple vertical setup where I can see the whole week at once, so I thought I’d give it another try. I’m looking forward to getting into a rhythm using my Life Planner for my personal and family planning this year.
I’m late getting my setup for this week posted. But hopefully I will have my post ready earlier for the upcoming week. I hope you’re enjoying January so far and that your planning is helping you to enjoy life and relax every chance you get. See you soon!
PS – I had a chance to list my first two collections of planner stickers in my Etsy shop this weekend! I’m really excited to share them with you and I’ll have a post ready in the next few days. Visit my Etsy Shop: JulieChatsPlans to see what I’ve been working on!
