Planner Friday - June

Today is Planner Friday and I am on the Trendy Twine blog again sharing how I decorate my weekly pages, please pop over and take a peek!

Hi!  It's Planner Friday again and I want to show you another fun layout I have created using Annie's Paper Boutique products.  I kept this week pretty simple and only used stamps and washi for decoration but I think it looks rather cute!

Planning my week

I used skinny washi tape around the edge of my pages and added an extra pop of colour with some sweet pink Trendy Page Dots.  I paired the pink with black for a nice, clean look and used some heart stamps from the You & Me set for decoration.

Getting out of my planner funk - changing things up (featuring my week #23)

In my last post I mentioned I had been in a bit of a planner funk recently and that I was going to change the weekly inserts I use to shake things up a little.  I had seen these vertical style inserts from Just So Stationery and loved the layout but I wasn't sure how well they would work for me day to day.  Kirsty (the lovely lady behind Just So Stationery) very kindly sent me a sample set so I could give them a go and I have to say I love them!

Vertical week on two pages

The week days are split into three boxes for Morning, Afternoon and Evening and there are a couple of spaces for notes at the top and bottom of each day.  The weekend has the same note spaces but just one box per day.  When I am using horizontal weekly inserts I like Saturday and Sunday to have the same amount of space as the rest of the week days but I don't mind them being smaller in this layout.  

First half of my week

I wrote my daily reminders at the top of each day and used the space underneath to record my blog stats.  I also added my to do items to the section of the day I thought I would complete them.  I found it quite handy to have my days split into segments and I got used to the different style of layout quickly!

Second half of the week

Changing things up really helped me get my groove back, I have been using my organiser a lot more and I am enjoying spending time planning again.  The samples I was given are for the whole month of June so I have some more weekly spreads to show you using them.  

I will also be back tomorrow for another Planner Friday so I hope to see you then!

My weeks 17, 18 & 19

I have been in a bit of a planning funk for the past few weeks, I haven't decorated my pages or used any stamps, coloured ink or washi tape!  I think it was a combination of feeling a bit meh, being busy and also ill.  I was still using my planner but I was just scribbling things down in pen and generally making a big mess while trying to keep all of my plates spinning.

I also didn't feel up to blogging so I have three weeks worth of pretty pages to show you that I did before the funk set in.

My week #17

Week #17 was National Stationery week so I had to keep the decoration down to a minimum as I needed lots of space for all of the blog posts I was writing and the daily themes.  I think I did 11 posts over 7 days which was a bit crazy!  I kept my pages bright and cheerful with washi tape and small stickers but as you can see the reminders and to do lists were my main focus for this week.

My week #18

My week #18 pages had a super kawaii theme with Hello Kitty stickers, sweet foodie stamps and washi tape.  Things were quite quiet for me so I had a lots of space to play with which was nice after my previous week!

My week #19

I think my week #19 pages are one of my favourite weeks ever, anyone who has been following my blog for a while will know that I am a sucker for an Alice in Wonderland theme!  This one was based around the Mad Hatter's tea party and I just love how it turned out!  

I think this may have started my planning funk though!  When I began decorating my week #20 pages I just kept thinking they looked a bit rubbish compared to week #19, in the end I didn't even finish them and it all spiralled from there.  So I have decided to shake things up a little now!  I have been sent some samples from Just So Stationery of a week on two page vertical layout and I am going to give them a go and see how I get on.  I think a change will help me get my groove back!
