For my birthday month I got myself a little present: a black Filofax Original in A5 size, my dream planner. I loved using the personal size for the past few months, but I was so happy to go back to the A5 size because now I have tons of space for writing and of course to decorate. Here are my pages for the following months.
I was very much influenced by the Heidi Swapp memory planner when I did the set up of this planner. I designed new page inserts with the help of my daughter. They are awesome to incorporate the project life cards as decoration or simply to use the extra space to document your ideas. For the second week of May I used the color combination of pink, green and touches of black and white.
For my actual birthday week I used some of the ephemera from the Confetti line by Maggie Holmes. It was glittery pink and gold. Not my usual decor, but oh well it was my birthday after all!
After all the glitter I did the complete opposite and designed a black and white page inspired by Teresa Collins.
Soon enough I was back to the beautiful pastel colors that I seem to be enjoying a lot lately. This page was totally inspired by the awesome stamp by Amy Tangerine. Have I mentioned that I totally love her handwriting?
By mid June Me and My Big Ideas released their new Happy Planner line. I did not buy the planner, but I did purchase some of the amazing stickers from the line. The inspirational quotes have always been my favorite thing to use in my planner and this booklet is full of them. Here is a page totally inspired by them.
For July I was feeling all patriotic sentiments as the Independence Day celebration was around the corner. I decided to do two red, white and blue pages for the following weeks and to make them different, I did a nautical theme on the first one.
And of course a totally patriotic theme the next week. Happy Independence day!
For the last two weeks of July I was looking at every Target in Town trying to find their new Dollar spot sticky notes collection. As soon as I found it, I used it to create pages for the following weeks.
Pink is definitely used on this page!
I can’t believe it is the end of July and the summer is still in full swing. After a recent trip to the beach I got inspired by the minty green color of the water to create this page.
As soon as a planner month is about to end, I prepare my monthly calendar for the following month. This time, once again, I was totally inspired by the Heidi Swapp Memory planner.
I will see you soon with more decorated pages and hoping that some of these pictures bring you inspiration to create your own. Thank you for reading!
