It’s been a while since I shared a Filofax Inspiration post, but as my fellow planner geeks will know, it takes time to set up a planner and to find your way with it. I’ve had my Kikki K Lilac Time Planner for a couple of months now, so I thought I would share my set up. I will definitely be making some future changes, but for now here we are…..
My dashboard is a printed quote from Pinterest with an acetate sheet on top to keep it clean. I used my single hole punch a lot when setting up this planner.
I use the front pockets for my biz cards, page markers and usually sticky notes. I always use a Frixion erasable roller ball pen for writing in my planner – they are just brilliant for mistakes and appointment changes.
I decided to make my own dividers using coloured and patterned papers. The front of each divider is coloured card stock decorated with gold washi tape to compliment the overall planner design. I used alphabet stamps for the tabs and laminated the whole divider before hole punching.
This section is my health tracking for migraines, but I removed the contents for the photo as it contained lots of personal information about my medications etc.
One thing I like about this planner is the clear ruler. Filofax do not have a clear ruler for A5 size and I hated the ugly black one I had in my Domino Filofax. I usually decorate each week (i have a week per page) with washi tape and stickers.
My diary inserts are free printables from Philofaxy but I know that there are some great ones in Paperchase in the UK and in fellow blogger Alexis’ shop.For the last two weeks I decided on a cat themed planner (crazy cat lady alert!). I purchased the cat collection from the Project Life Themed Card packs and I use these as an additional decoration. I use the other side of the cards for gratitude journalling.
I don’t think I will be able to stuff this planner as full as the Filofax Domino I previously used, but I intend to keep my diary, blog planner, some biz notes and finances in here. One day when I figure out my new camera properly, I’ll film a full set up video!
I like to share planner inspiration and printables on my Pinterest boards. If you’re into planners too you can follow along here.
