Hi everyone, it is Kelly here today with a new blogpost. Today I will show you how I have setup my planner for fall and decorate a weekly and monthly spread. I used the pretty Forever Fall collection and my Blush A5 Carpe Diem planner.

For this setup I used lots of fussycut flowers from the ‘Be Grateful’ paper. I tucked these flowers in two of the four planner pockets and decorated the other two pockets with some papers and ephemera pieces.

I used my Silhouette machine to cut an ‘Autumn’ cutfile out of white cardstock. I backed the cutfile with 6 different papers from the collection. I layered the cutfile together with some flowers on my front dashboard. Love all the fall vibes this front dashboard gives me.

I mainly decorated my weekly spread with the three washitapes from the collection and stickers from the planner basics tablet. Little tip: when I plan my weekly spreads, I always leave some blank space in case I have some extra to do’s or new appointments.

For my monthly spread I used the lightpink flag number stickers from the numbers sticker tablet. These stickers match perfectly with the decorative elements from the Forever Fall collection.

I hope you have enjoyed reading this blog and next month I will be back with part two of my fall setup in my planner. Check out my instagram account createplannernl for more inspiration.


Hi everyone, it is Kelly here today with a new blog post! For this month I decorated my Robin’s Egg A5 planner and Bloom A5 inserts and Blush Speckle TN with the I Am collection. The I am collection was released a while back, but the new Hello Sticker Tablet and Hello Washi Tape are a perfect match.

I selected two Washi Tapes from the ‘Hello’ Washi Tape set and the ‘Dreaming big’ Washi Tape to create a little Washi Tape sample card for my TN pocket. The rest of the pockets I decorated with a few flowers and butterflies.

For my TN insert I created my own cover from the ‘Loving Live’ paper and fussycut a few butterflies from the ‘Choosing Happiness’ paper. I only glued the middle of the butterflies so the wings can pop up. Love that effect!

The florals in the ‘Staying Positive’ are my favorite from the whole collection, so I had to use it as a dashboard in my planner. I added a 3x4 card, some stickers and four butterflies to finish the page.

I decorated the monthly spread for September with lots of butterflies from the ‘Choosing Happiness’ paper and a few stickers from the basic sticker tablet. To finish of the spread I used a few stamps from the ‘Mug life’ stamp set. This set is full of little quotes and words which are perfect for planner spreads.

I hope you have enjoyed reading this blog, have a nice day!


Hi everyone, Kelly here today with a new blogpost! For this month I decorated my Robin’s Egg A5 planner inserts and Typewriter circle TN with the same ‘Dream Big’ collection. This collection has lots of fun florals and awesome rainbow colors. I use the planner for planning and the TN for documenting and lists.

I decorated my TN pockets with a few papers, some chipboard stickers and ephemera. For the front dashboard I decided to keep it simple and used the Dream chipboard stickers and one floral ephemera.

I love all the new stamps by Carpe Diem planner, I used a few frame stamps and a to do stamp to create my own custom to do page. I also used a few of the icon stamps to try them out, love them!

I used the back side of the 3x4 Elements paper with the scalloped borders to create a dashboard on the left side. For the ‘This month’ page I made a ‘Dream big’ silhouette file and backed it up with some of the papers. I decorated the page with some florals and wrote my to do list for the month.

I decorated my weekly spread with some florals from the ‘So adorable’ paper from the collection. For the rest of the spread I mainly used some functional stickers from the ‘planner stickers basics’ tablet.

Have a very nice day!
