Calendar Monthlies & More

Calendar Monthlies & More

Hey There!

It’s been too long since I’ve done a planner post. I’d like to challenge myself to get back on a weekly schedule so let’s see how this goes.

2016-2017 BIG Happy Planner™ - Stay Golden

In preparation for opening my Etsy shop I picked up a couple new Happy Planners to get colors and sizes. They sat all summer as I tried to figure out the planner system to meet my current needs. Eventually, I decided to convert my Big HP into my business planner. I didn’t need weeklies so I removed them and made some overlays to cover the back side of each calendar where the first week starts. I added dividers I found at the Target One Spot to go behind my monthlies and my business planner was all set up.

Calendar Monthlies

I carry a small monthly calendar in my purse for quick access. It’s my appointment bible so it stays sheltered until I need to add or change something. My plan is to keep my Big HP on my desk, so I decided I would transfer needed information into it at the beginning of each new month. When I get the chance to work on a new month, I try to start out with a few goals in my side bar then decorate the whole spread according to my appointments. This was my first month back, so I’m still fine tuning how I really want to work on these roomier spreads.

When I worked on my September spread I used stickers to mark most of my activities. My set up looked fine but it didn’t offer that motivating element that usually results from a good layout. I’m OK with that as long as I keep trying to figure out this huge space to work with.

I opted to go a totally different route when working on my October monthly spread. With Fall Break being this month I wanted to be creative in how I recorded that time off. I’ve been wanting to do some stamping, so this was the perfect opportunity to have some fun with those. My stamp selection isn’t as great as I remembered but I still had a ton of options to work with. I’m playing with how to include some of my business plans so I started with cute sticky flags see how they work.

Sneak Peak & Printable Freebies

Here’s a little sneak peek at tomorrows new releases for GingerPaperCo. I customized the tiny clipboards to match the two Happy Planners I have for this year. I love how they turned out and can’t wait to jot down some notes on these.
Now onto my favorite part, giving you free printables. I mentioned in a previous post that I would try offering these freebies in my shop for those who would prefer to purchase the precut stickers. I need to iron out some of the details so I decided to offer my Halloween Mega Kit as a freebie here with the option to purchase in my shop. I would really appreciate you checking it out; and if you would like to offer your support, there’s an option for that too! I’m soo excited to see how this new setup works out.

And that is it for this post; It feels good to get this out there finally! I’ll be back next week with a weekly layout and a follow-up to my previous post. I’ll be elaborating on a more personal level leading up to what I have planned for this blog.

These sticker sheets are made by me for your personal, non-commercial use only. Please don’t redistribute these files; if you wish to share this with your friends please send them back to this post to retrieve the files.

Printing these files is pretty simple but just in case your unfamiliar here are some ways you can use them:

{1} Print onto sticker paper and cut them by hand. You may be able to leave some white space but not all stickers are spaced to be cut that way.

{2} Print onto letter size copy, or card stock, paper then cut by hand and adhere with your preferred adhesive. The Xyron sticker makers are a great option if you prefer full cover adhesive.

{3} Upload the files to your Silhouette Studio to add your cut lines. Print onto sticker paper and cut.
