planning for 2015

Hi friends!

Hope you had a wonderful holiday! I sure did. I was able to gather with the family, relax and make merry. I am so grateful for all the blessings I have. 2014 was a year of dramatic change in our lives, we are still figuring it all out, but I am seeing 2015 as being one for the record books. Stay tuned! Ha, ha.

Today I want to share a little bit about customizing my planner for 2015. I have had planners on and off for years, but now that I am back at work, I see the potential inĀ keeping a planner even more! I love my Simple Stories planner for keeping at home, next to my desk/computer station. (I have a smaller planner that goes in my purse for on the go planning, ha!)



I have theĀ 6 X 8 Teal Album from Simple Stories (shown above) although I have not collected all the little stickers, etc. Instead, I used the Waffle Flower Crafts Calendar Stamp Set and the Planner Stay Focused Stamp Set to customize my pages.



Here is a photo of getting started.

I pulled a pile of the Simple Stories Life Documented Weekly Planner Inserts and laid them out assembly style. I used my adorable tiny clear blocks from Fun Stampers Journey and stamped JANUARY on each day. Then, I added the cute little check boxes and other banners to my pages.

Here a peek at my first two week spread. This is January 5-18th and it looks to be crazy busy already! A trip to CHA, two birthdays and the Waffle Flower Blog Hop! Fun! (I love the Simple Stories Plastic Bookmark, too).

  3. Love your planner. I am getting the Webster’s Pages one in teal too. I am hoping I am going to like this panner. I have been seeing amazing things done with them so I am giving it a try. I am looking for a less stressful year.

  4. I’m looking forward to my first term on a design team. The Calendar set would be an awesome help in organizing my planner!

  7. Your planner looks great! I’m looking forward to a vacation trip to northern Wisconsin and another to visit family in Florida this coming year. On top of that we will be replacing our deck and making a better outdoor living space in the summer. Much to be looking ahead for…

  8. I’m telling myself I need to spend more time with my family. My parents are both gone now and I need to keep the connection(s) with my brother. I am promising to get back to the gym and loose 20 pounds AND looking forward to the Packers winning the Super Bowl.
    Thanks for the opportunity to win!!! Happy New Year!!
