Setting Up My Carpe Diem Planner

Setting Up My Carpe Diem Planner

Hello Planner Addicts!!!  Candi here today to show you how I set up my Robin's Egg Carpe Diem Planner!!!  I am still doing things here and there inside my planner, but I feel that this set up is working for me so far!  SS really kicked it out of the ballpark with this new Collection!!!  I am already thinking I need another color so I can change out my planner from time to time :)
I lovvvvvve the pockets inside this many slots to tuck in fun clips, washi and pics!  Makes me happy to see all of those goodies peeking out!
Behind my dashboard I added a Pocket Insert.  Inside the pocket I have several Carpe Diem Stickers and I attached a photo with a Magnetic Page Marker  :)

I am using the Basic Dividers to get myself organized inside!  There are 6 Dividers and each tab reads:  Information, Calendar, Menus, To Do, Notes and This & That.  The Basic Dividers come with 108 clear label stickers, which is GREAT!  I love how colorful the Dividers can leave them just as they are or you can add embellishments to them!  I am still in the process of adding photos and embellishments to mine...the process of making your planner "your own" is so much fun!!!

Inside my Information Divider I have my "intro" page, contacts and a list of birthdays & anniversaries!  

For my Calendar Divider I am only storing October, November and Decembers Weekly Inserts.  My plan is, at the end of November, I will remove the whole month of October and add in the whole month of January.  Basically only having 3 months in my planner at one time.  My thoughts are if I have the whole year inside my planner and all of the "extras", it might get to be too much because I love adding extra photos here and there along with some memorabilia!
Below you will find my monthly view of October, decorated and competed with my important to-dos along with a weekly spread.

Another great feature about this planner is that nothing is can start whenever you would like!  I think it is fun to sit down and add the Number Stickers to the monthly spread and add some random Carpe Diem Stickers!  Below you will see how I decorated my November Divider with a Dashboard Insert and a few Stickers!  Plus you will find my November monthly all set to go and ready to plan...!  (I spy a little Pumpkin Spice goodness on my monthly view!!!)

I love how each month there is a "re-cap" sheet to fill out!  This is where I store my Sticky Notes Bookmark  :)

Here is the start of my Weekly Inserts for November...I set aside 5 minutes and stamp out each date in my Weekly Inserts with a roller stamp and a basic black ink pad! 

Loving the Basic Inserts!  I am always meal planning and the Menu Inserts are helping me out so much!  Right now I am using one side for each month...   

At the back of my planner, I have included the Plastic Storage Pouch to store some of my Bits & Pieces!  Those die cut shapes are fun to add to your planner pages :)  You could also store some extra Stickers andWashi Paper Tape too! I also added a Metal Charm to the zipper pull on the pouch!
I am so excited to see how you all set up your Carpe Diem Planner when it arrives!  You must share lots of photos on your social media accounts and make sure to use the following hashtags:  #CarpeDiemPlanner #SimpleStories #SnapPlanner.  Would love to see your planners in action!!!  
Have a great weekend ahead and...Happy Planning :)
