Maggie Holmes Design Team : Planner Set Up

By Jcchris
I've been admiring all the pretty planners out there but I wasn't sure if I have time to sit down and plan my daily events on an actual planner. I didn't dive straight into the trend but waited for a bit. After much thought, I finally took the plunge and decided to decorate this pink planner that was gifted to me by a very good friend. 
Today, I'll be sharing with you on how I set up my A6 fabric planner. Since I don't have the liberty to use this planner everyday, I decided to change things around. This planner won't be used for daily purposes but it'll be for jotting down special dates & part of this will be used as photo journal too.

The fabric on the inside of this planner is very colourful and I decided to tone it down. I took one of the Confetti patterned paper, cut it according to the size where I can slot the paper in and glued it onto the fabric. It definitely suited my style! Then I started to work on my dashboards & some other inner pages with the Confetti + Open Book products. 
TODAY | I'll use it for important dates that I need to pay extra attention to i.e. appointments/ my daughter's school events/ grocery list, etc.

And on the right side, I created these beautiful flowers with the Confetti metal flower cutting dies. Don't you just love those little cute tassels? They are just perfect!

I love that I can use this planner in such a versatile & fun way! I hope that you'll try it out & create something interesting with your planners. You can also try this out with a notebook/journal too. Thank you for letting me share today!
