Daily and Weekly Planning!
Hello everyone! Welcome back to the Simple Stories blog. Leah here with you today to show you a new planning setup I’m trying out in my A5 Mint Blossom Carpe Diem planner. I’ve been playing around with different planner inserts lately, and am giving daily inserts a try this week. The beauty of the Carpe Diem planner inserts being undated is that you can switch up your inserts any time.
I love using daily inserts, but I still like being able to see a weekly view. I used the grid paper from the Basics Inserts pack and stuck one sheet in at the start of the week to write out my weekly tasks and goals. I love planning on grid paper because it's so easy to draw lines and shapes on a layout. The grid lines really help with spacing and writing neatly as well.
I love how this little weekly habit tracker turned out. I wrote in reminders for daily habits I'm trying to improve upon. I will color in a square for each day of the week I remember to do these things.
Several of the stickers from the Carpe Diem sticker tablets fit perfectly within the grid paper lines. Using stickers on this paper is a fun way to emphasize messages or reminders, or to separate your layout into sections.
For the first daily page of my week, I used a few stickers from the Planner Basics sticker tablet, such as this tab sticker that works really well as a tracker. In this case, I drew lines to represent 24 oz. of water since that’s the size of the tumbler I carry around with me everywhere. These tab stickers would be so fun to draw or stamp shapes onto to make a variety of trackers. For example, you could draw little hearts or boxes to color in.
I primarily used the Bloom sticker tablet to decorate both of these layouts. The Carpe Diem sticker tablets are loaded with SO many stickers. Carrying just one around with you gives you ample possibilities for decorating several layouts on-the-go. I cut the back cover of the Bloom tablet so that I could tuck it into the back pocket of my planner. I’m also carrying the Bloom Bits and Pieces pack in a Carpe Diem Plastic Storage Pouch. I love finding easy ways like this to carry supplies with me to use while I'm away from home.
Simple Stories has been releasing more and more sticker tablets lately. There’s one to coordinate with nearly every collection, but there are also several basic sticker tablets that have come out recently. One of my favorites is the one full of nothing but number stickers to date your undated inserts. Do you have a favorite Carpe Diem sticker tablet right now? They are so versatile and give you so much value for your money.
Thank you all for sharing your time with me here on the blog today. Until next time friends, happy planning!
