OMG, I can't tell you how much I love the tiny numbers on the Emeline stamp set! They are just the perfect size for the planner in my Traveler's Notebook. I use undated planner inserts, which I design, print, cut and bind myself, so I got used to adding the actual date by hand for each month and week. But let me tell you, those tiny stamps are an absolute game changer! They make a page look so much more put together and clean - just how I like it.
To be honest, I don't like decorating my weekly planner pages because I love a clean and simple feel to my pages throughout the week - nothing distracting. However, I absolutely enjoy setting up my planner for the month. It is where I highlight birthdays, special events and appointments, as well as commitments I have throughout the month. For example, to highlight the birthdays this month, I used the brackets stamps to frame the name. I used the tiny star shape stamp for reminding me of my Felicity Jane project due dates, and used different pen sizes and fonts for noting down appointments and reminders.
Last but not least, I like to frame my spreads on the bottom with a strip of paper or washi tape and a cluster of embellishments at the bottom and top of the page. That way, the spread feels balanced but not overloaded and I still have enough room to come back and add more events and important reminders as they occur.
That floral paper... Oh my, I will be really sad when I've used up all of it, and that moment will be here way too soon because I am using it on EVERYTHING, yep I am serious! Please tell me I am not alone!
I would love to see your monthly planner spreads and hope you'll share them with us on Facebook and Instagram.
I hope all of you have a wonderful weekend :)
