How Do You Plan for the Week?

0 Comments

Hello everyone!!  Kymona here from Kreative Kymona here to ask you how do you plan for the week? 

Do you use a paper planner or do you prefer to use your phone?  Do you decorate your planner or do you just write down what you need to do?

Either way we all need to plan in order to stay current with all of the task we have these days.

Today I’m going to show you how I plan for the week using this month’s Planner Kit. 

Take a look at my spread:

My planner is blank so its a open canvas for me to create the way that I want to.  I love creating colorful pages.  It makes me want to open up my planner everyday.  The planner kit this month is amazing. All of the pieces coordinate so well.

I used the number stickers to add the dates to my blank planner.   Once those numbers are down, I work date by date so that I don’t miss anything.  I write in the days work then I add the embellishments.

The stickers allow my pages to pop! They make the pages fun. They make you want to read and check off things that were actually completed.  

I try my best to not make mistakes in my planner since I use a pen from time to time but there are times when I do make mistakes.  I fix it the best way I can and keep going.  That’s what makes it a really planner to me.  Its not meant to be perfect!!

So how do you plan for the week?  Please let me know below what you think.

I hope I’ve inspired you to create colorful planner spreads. 

Thank for stopping by!

May Weekly Spread Using Planner Kit

Hey planner and scrapbook friends! I was so excited when I heard that our kits were mainly Gossamer Blue exclusives! This month’s color palette was such a spring feel with bright yellows and carnation pinks. 

Here’s the filled spread in my Get To Work Book:

Those cute die cuts are to die for. I used my Prima planner glue pen to adhere those tiny guys down:

The stickers in this month’s kit was also thinner so your planner won’t look so clunky when you have it closed:

I love this month’s title cards/to-do list cards as well:

This month’s planner kit also coordinates well with the new Travel Notebook kits! Have you seen them? They are fabulous!

Hey Planner Friends!

Teal, pink, and yellow … those are my absolute favorite colors to plan with. I wanted to have you walk through my planner process and how to accentuate your planner pages with the Planner and Life Pages kit, along with some other things you probably have in your stash!

1) My planner pages usual start like this. Very simple, with just some reminders written in that I had documented days, weeks, sometimes months prior. Here I am using the Get To Workbook A5 pages and a Faber Castell journal pen. 

2) Every time I get full sheets in my planner kit I get excited. Not only are the sheets so versatile (for planner, pocket scrapbooking, card making or scrapbooking) but the colors are so vivid and bright.

I wanted to incorporate a “small” bit of the paper into my page, so I trimmed it down to 1.6 x 6 inches and ripped it.

Then I adhered it down to a white space – I never really use the footnote, so I thought the real estate here worked great. 

3) Grab some markers or highlighters! This is where your art skills are going to come into play. Do a bit of shading in “blah” spots. These are brush pens by Yoobi that you can grab from Target.

4) I LOVE these labels from our Life Pages Kit. Cover your reminders – here is where the decorating starts taking life. I know it feels like double work, but repeat the reminders but instead, write on your labels.

5) I am a huge fan of color coding. So make yourself a cute legend. This can also be done on a sticky note so you can just use it on different weeks. I decided to make this a one-week legend, since it’s the end of March and I will most likely use a different color scheme for April. Those dots are perfect for this! Color code your reminders on your main page to reflect your key as well!

6) Write some more pertinent reminders on the sticky notes directly, then adhere these to your layout. This just mixes up your page a bit. And also, not everything needs to be on a label or sticky note. Switch it up and write directly in the planner. That’s ok too!

7) And throughout the week, add your reminders and color code accordingly. This helps me understand the flow of my week better!

Here are some shots of the finished week. I added a few of the puffy stickers from the Life Pages Kit as well!

I love the “spring-y” feel of how this layout turned out!

See how the highlighting/coloring of the check boxes makes the page pop!

I am totally going to hoard that flower paper!

Puffy stickers unite! How perfect was it to capture our casino’s Tournament Weekend!

Lucky Weekend!
