This Weeks Spread (for week 3rd – 9th April)

This weeks spread is a mish-mash of leftovers from other kits and some glitter washi! I’m really loving the dream-like feel of this spread!!! 


What does your week look like so far?

This Weeks Spread (for week 27th Mar – 2nd Apr)

This weeks spread uses a kit from Filofabulouss that I purchased not long after Christmas!  I did look for the same kit to post a link but the one that Sarah now sells is slightly different to the kit I purchased.  I added some purple glittery washi to the kit to become my hole re-enforcer strip and also some silver strip tape which I used to cover the printed type on my filofax diary inserts.

Here’s my layout

This Weeks Spread (for week 20th – 26th Mar)

This week I have gone for one of my favorite subjects ever – pirates!  I bought this kit from The Ginger Cat Co .  Here’s my layout…

img_9731

I got recommended The Ginger Cat Co on a facebook group when I was looking for a new shop to buy from.  There were so many stickers that I have enough to do a few more layouts later on in the year.  I did have to cut down the checklist stickers as they were a bit too long for my day spaces but that just means I now have even more to use later on!  These stickers are lovely and really nicely printed.  They are printed onto matte adhesive paper and came away from the backing paper really easily and stuck down well.  I have bought days of the week stickers from Shona (who runs The Ginger Cat Co) which will be popping up on a spread in the near future!

This Weeks Spread (for week 13th – 19th Mar)

This weeks spread is inspired by St Patrick’s Day which falls on friday this week.  St Patrick is the patron Saint of Ireland.  I wanted something that had elements of the Irish in it and chose to purchase this weekly kit from Oodlemadoodles for its use of cute pots of gold, rainbows and four leaf clovers.  As always, I am totally in love with the spread and am really enjoying having my planner open on my desk to peek at during the day (and use of course!!!)

Here it is all stuck down in my Filofax Malden Personal in Kingfisher Blue 🙂

Here’s a look back at last weeks spread…unfortunately I came down with a cold (I keep refferring to is as Almost Flu, because it was almost flu but couldn’t have been as I have had the flu jab…) so I didn’t really do much last week except sleep and cwtch up on the sofa under a blanket.

This Weeks Spread (for week 6th – 12th Mar)

img_9651

This weeks layout uses a kit I bought from Adore Pretty Plans on etsy.  I was browsing for something pastel toned and my eye caught this kit.  I ordered this on the 21st of Jan and received it shortly after.  The kit is printed onto matte paper and was easy to lift and place.  I really like the boxes with the checks on them that I have used on the Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday days as they give defined space to write plans in and they are something I have never used before!  The unicorns are pretty cute too and add an element of fun, pulling together the whole layout.  I am really enjoying looking at these pages as they are and can not wait to get my plans written down in them!

Here’s a peek back at last weeks custom layout created by the lovely Grace over at Oodlemadoodles for me for St Davids Day

The Big Reveal – This Weeks Spread (for week 27th Feb – 5th Mar)

Today is St David’s Day – the Patron Saint of Wales which, living and having grown up in Wales I really wanted to commemorate in my planner.  I searched high and low for any welsh or Wales themed stickers or kits (leeks, daffodils and dragons were my number one choice…) and turned up next to nothing (unlike St Patrick’s day where I was overwhelmed with choice…).  I had noted a while ago that Oodlemadoodles (my favorite planner kit shop…) had a “Request Custom Order” button so I got in touch with Grace, the owner of Oodlemadoodles, and explained what I was after via the conversation function.  Grace replied and then sent me an image of the kit she had designed and I was over the moon to say the least!  She totally understood what I was after.  I paid for my kit and was really impressed that it arrived so quickly afterwards.  The whole process was really easy and I will definitely be ordering further custom kits in the future (I have a few occasions that I would love to mark in a totally original way!)

The kit came with a large character sticker, 2 decorative edge strips,several flags and decorative stickers, days of the week coverups, functional stickers, meal plan stickers and cute box stickers (all the things you can see on Grace’s usual personal planner section )!

So a big THANK YOU to Grace over at Oodlemadoodles for making my day and my week!!!!

So… here, finally is my weekly layout

This Weeks Spread (for week 20 – 26th Feb)

This weeks spread uses a kit from Oodlemadoodles called Unicorn Dreams which I fell in love with a short while ago!  I bought the kit and it came super fast, it is lovely, the colors are bright and the Unicorn is the cutest!  I think this might be my all time favorite spread so far!

This Weeks Spread (for week 13th -19th Feb)

img_9540

This weeks spread is using a kit by Oodlemadoodles called Foxy Love.  I chose this kit as it incorporates hearts and cute foxes and is perfect for Valentines day/week as its not too obviously Valentines.  I really like the zigzag and stripe prints and the orange and pink tones.  I decided to rotate the box stickers by 90 degrees so they fit better within the day spaces – I think I am going to use these to write my day to day chores in.

Here’s a look back at last weeks pages…

This Weeks Spread (for week 6th – 12th Feb)

This weeks spread was purchased from KayeLimePie over on etsy and the little recycle bins were purchased from DookPlookDesigns.  The kit had been sat in my cart for a while and I finally purchased it after my pay day in January.  I really love it and chose to use it for the week that my Mum has her birthday in (the colors and patterns Kaye has used in this design remind me of my Mum <3) The mis-matched but totally fit together patterns are lovely and the peacocks are lovely teamed with the feather decorative stickers.  I cant wait to start planning out my week on it!  🙂  And can I just point out that the turquoise in the stickers pretty much perfectly matches the blue of my Kingfisher Malden Filofax!!!

Here’s how my last week ended up looking (see here for the full details)

Diary Inserts – Week On Two Pages

Welcome back to my series on Dairy Inserts.  Today I am writing about Week on Two Pages inserts, also known fondly as WO2P inserts.

img_9453

 

This is the current diary format that I am using in my Filofax Malden, one week spread over two pages, so you can see a full week when your planner is opened at that week.  I made the switch (as I spoke about in the Planner Girls Collective post where I wrote about my planner set up) from Day to a Page as I felt that I just didn’t need that much space anymore, albeit hesitantly, and I can honestly say I have not looked back!

WO2P format is great for someone like me who has a single jobs, a few hobbies and likes to keep track of appointments, to do’s, household day to day, and any other little life notes that need to be made note of (like reminders to phone people, for some reason I’m terrible at that!).

The handiest thing for me is that I can see clearly my full week, from Monday to Sunday, and I even have a space at the top of the first part of the week which I like to add in things to do, reminders or weekly goals, and I even have space to decorate my spread too!  You can buy a few different versions of WO2P including ones that run from Monday to Sunday in equal sections without a notes section, one with smaller sections for the weekend or ones with smaller weekday sections and a larger weekend (though you may need to search places like Etsy for these)

My favorite WO2P at the moment are the ones sold by Filofax however I may need to change my pen over as I have experienced a bit of shadowing (where you can see the pen from the other side of the sheet coming through onto the other side…)

What do you like about WO2P diary inserts?

Here’s some of the spreads that I have decorated for this year.
