The days when I just used to scribble appointments in an A5 week to a view diary are long gone. Since I discovered the planning community in 2017 I’ve never looked back. I never used to keep a diary going for more than a few months because it looked dull and uninspiring. Having learned that there was a huge variety of planners available to suit different styles plus decorative and functional stickers to use with them, I dived right in!
January 2021, can you believe it???
As we all reflect on the year that has passed, and what a year it has been. We look ahead to what the year ahead has in store for us, we make our plans, set our goals and aspirations.
So I have picked my planners and journals to help me achieve my goals, I have also chosen my one little word, which for 2021 will be Grow.
I feel that it's a good choice for me as I grow within myself, my career and my creative side also.
Do have a word of the year??
With the latest releases, we were all treated to a revised format for the collections. I went a little bit sticker mad and bought most of them to try out in different ways and in different planners. I’ve set up three monthly spreads, three monthly tracking pages and two weekly spreads. I’ve had a lot of fun stickerating and thought I would share my five favourite things about the changes and how I’ve used them.
At this time of year the Creative Planning Team's thoughts turn to all things Christmassy. The variety of new planners and planning supplies available are constantly changing and it's exciting to see what's out there and how they complement the range of collections and functional stickers from EllieBeth Designs UK.
The Creative Planning Team have been exploring all the goodies available and give us an insight into what's on their 'Planner' Christmas wish lists.
Can you remember the presents you got when you were 5 or 8, or even last year or can you remember the activities you did as a family?
Board games around the table, making hot chocolate and adding all the toppings you want or even making gingerbread people and houses. This is the focus we have in our house and I always use my planner to put down the must do's for the season.
The current pandemic has sadly put a limit on what we will be doing this year, but I still want to make it as magical as possible.
Using the EllieBeth Christmas bucket list stickers makes planning these activities easier. I will get my two children to join in with our Christmas planning making sure there is something for everyone.
It's that time of year again - lots of festive decorating and Christmas stickerating. So I thought I'd share with you what I've been doing and what my Christmas Planner setup looks like so far.
We have three new CPT member this month and this week they give us an insight into their current planners and planner style; what stickers they use and how they use them together. If you want to see more of their creative talents you can find their social media links in the link at the bottom of the blog.
Back in March, just before we were subjected to the endless uncertainty of 2020, I did a blog on a week in the life of my planners where I shared the use of my different planners during a week. 8 Months on, we’re entering a second Lockdown and a time to review my planners, what I’m using and what I may use for 2021. This is my planner week which starts on a Thursday.
A few weeks ago I watched a tutorial from my lovely friend Clare Brown, we made mind maps of the things that make us happy.
For today’s blog post I thought it would be nice to make another one in my Hobonichi with an Autumn theme.
Greetings, stickerators! It’s me, Natalie, back for another blog post. This month, I thought I’d share with you my top five sticker sheets. These are my essentials: stickers that form the backbone of my personal planning system.
