How I Started Planning ~ How I Make My Planner Spreads

Hey, world! It’s Lora.

As you probably noticed, I haven’t been posting for about a month because I’ve been very busy lately. I’ll try to be active and provide you with more interesting content. 🙂 Today’s post is connected with planning. This is something I’ve never written about in my blog but I’ve been using a planner since September. I was inspired by Haley Pham (my favourite youtuber) and her amazing “Erin Condren” planner. I love keeping everything organized and I thought that this would be perfect for me. I am also a fan of everything handmade, so creating my own planner sounded awesome to me. And that’s how it all started…

I used a big notebook and just decorated the cover. In this post I’ll try to show you the process of making the planner spreads. I start by drawing the boxes with a colourful crayon. I choose a different colour every time.

After that, I cut banners out of self-adhesive paper, so it’s easier for me to stick them to the pages.

Next, I put some sticky notes between the banners on which I write the most important thing for the day.

When I’m ready with the layout. I start writing and decorating. I create the to-do lists for each day and write down all of the events that are going to happen during the week.

I also put the dates above the banners (for example – 17th Monday) and decorate them with different designs. The picture below shows some of the designs that I’ve done before. The days of the week are written in Bulgarian, so you probably can’t read them. 🙂

As you have noticed, I made two banners on the left side which I left empty. I use them to write my goals for the week and some blog ideas. I sometimes put a picture or a quote that will keep me motivated throughout the week.

I have a few packets with a variety of different stickers and I love to put them in my planner spreads. I also use a lot of colourful markers and pens, so my activities and tasks are organized by colours.

That’s everything! I’m ready! Here’s a picture of the final result and some of my previous planner spreads.

This was my first planner post ever. I’m willing to make more of these because I’m slowly becoming a real planner addict. I hope you enjoyed seeing my planning routine. I would love to read your comments and thoughts, so don’t forget to leave them below. I recently made an Instagram account of my blog (@my.messy.blog) and you can follow me there too. Bye, guys!

xoxo, Lora
