10 fun ways to personalize your planner

Standard

Happy Monday! I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving!

After watching a video on you tube by Alexis aka Misstrenchcoat(who has amazing planner videos btw) on different ways to personalize your planner, I wanted to put together this post using some of her ideas along with some of mine and share them with all of you! Although when I started making my list we had almost the same ideas! Great planner minds think alike!

The 1st way I like to personalize my planner is by adding a cute pen! I love this purple crystal pen by PenGems! You can check them out here http://www.pengems.com

The 2nd way I like to personalize my planners are with dashboards. A dashboard is a place to hold sticky notes, washi, or just to make your planner pretty! I love this smile dashboard that a friend made for me, but you can find lots of cute ones on etsy by simply doing a search for planner dashboards.

The 3rd way I like to personalize my planner is by adding a cute charm! I love this green owl charm on my kiwi daytimer malibu that I received in a RAK! You can also find planner charms on etsy by searching for planner charms. Here are links to a few of my favorite shops for charms http://www.etsy.com/shop/plannercandydesigns and http://www.etsy.com/shop/shellybelly4evr

The 4th way I like to personalize my planners are by using cute dividers! I love these colorful chevron dividers that I purchased from a shop on etsy that is no longer open. I added some cute owl stickers for more cuteness! You can find so many cute dividers on etsy by doing a search for planner dividers. Here are links to a few of my favorite shops http://www.etsy.com/shop/peppermintdoxiedesigns and http://www.etsy.com/shop/mintedsugar.

The 5th way I like to personalize my planners are by using fun paper clips and page markers! I love this Kate Spade bow clip along with this project life divider that I cut down and punched to mark pages in my planners! You can find all kinds of cute page clips on etsy or even at your local craft store. Their are tons of super cute project life dividers that you can also find at your local craft store or on amazon. Here are links to a few of my favorite shops http://www.etsy.com/shop/kawaiipaperie http://www.etsy.com/shop/howecute4you

The 6th fun way I like to personalize my planners are by using fun washi tape and stickers! I like to use washi tape to not only decorate my pages, but for blocking off time on my calendar, and also for cancelling or rescheduling things. I also love to use fun, functional stickers to decorate and to mark different things in my planner. For example, different appts, paydays, weather, cleaning chores, and tv shows. You can find alot of super cute washi tape on etsy, ebay, amazon or at your local craft stores. Some walmart and target stores sell washi tape as well. For some of my favorite shops that sell amazing stickers check out my blog post here https://itsaplannerthing.wordpress.com/2014/11/17/planner-sticker-overload/

The 7th way I like to personalize my planners are by using fun printable inserts. You can find tons of printables on both etsy and pinterest by just searching the type of insert your looking for. I love this super cute and colorful recipe printable from the polka dot posie. She has tons of super cute and functional printables for free on her website. She also has some sets for sale in her etsy shop that include budget, health/fitness, and direct sales! Check them out here http://www.thepolkadotposie.com http://www.etsy.com/shop/polkadotposieprint

The 8th fun way I like to personalize my planners are by using DIY folders and workboards. You can make both folders and workboards for your planners by using a simple file folder. I like to use my foldout workboard for holding sticky notes so that they dont take up space on my calender inserts. Alexis aka Misstrenchcoat has a great tutorial video on how to make a folder! Check it out here

The 9th way I like to personalize my planners are by using fun project life cards and journaling cards. These come with fun prints and quotes. You can find them at your local craft store, target, or amazon.

Here are a few links to my favorite shops that sell colorful paper https://www.etsy.com/shop/YellowPaperHouse https://www.etsy.com/shop/KiddyQualia

I also love to cut down the list pads from the Target dollar spot and use them as note paper in my planner. I really love this weekly one it makes a great todo list and weekly meal plan!
