This is a copy of the post that I created for Pixels and Paper - team training feature for April.
This year I succumbed to popular culture and bought myself a pretty planner. A really nice Kikki K one. (I am going to be more organised. I am. I hope.) We're well into the year, and I'm still using it and loving it. So far, so good!
But I've discovered I don't have enough dividers to categorise the information I want to keep in there. I know lots of
people use mobile apps for this stuff, but there are some things I find easier to deal with on paper.
So I decided to make my own dividers. It's super simple AND cost effective because I'm using up my old scrapbooking stash. Here's what I did for my first one:
1> I took one of the original dividers that came with the planner, and used it as a template.
I traced the design onto my chosen patterned paper, and cut it out. (Does anyone know how just old this Cloud9 paper is??) I also added some penwork around the edge, but that's just something I do. For this one, I added a strip of washi tape to cover up the product information strip, and it also helped to reinforce
2> Next, I added a little title to my divider.
This section of my planner will contain the J-girl's school timetable and extra-curricular activities so I can keep
track of my taxi-service commitments. Another opportunity to use up some old stash (Arctic Frog alphabet stickers - and I even used two Z's!!)
3> Here's what it looks like, inserted in the planner:
4> I've written "JAZZ" on the tab since taking this photograph:
I enjoyed customising my planner, and I especially enjoyed using up some old stash in the process. I hope I
have inspired you to think differently about your old stash, and find new way to use it.
Here is a FLASHBACK to the team training feature I did last year.
