In Your Planner with Maggie Massey

Hey everyone! Maggie here with a peek inside my September planner pages! Wow…September?! Can you even believe it?

For this project I’ve decorated my September “Month-At-A-Glance” pages in my ban.do agenda…

EllesStudio-MaggieMassey-aSUPPLIES: August 2016 Kit, Notes From Today Stamp, Good Times Wood Veneer Flags, Sunny Days Bit & Pieces, Sunny Days Puffy Stickers, Sunny Days Word Labels, Sunny Days Patterned Paper, Letter & Number Stickers: Red, Teal, Mint

These two pages are probably the pages I use more than any others in my entire planner each month…I keep EVERYTHING on these two pages…everything…and I rarely flip to the daily pages. So I love to have them look a little dressed-up…

To begin, I wrote in all of the things I already know I need to remember…

…and then I started to decorate…

I love the little embellishments that come in every kit…they are the perfect size for my pages.

I keep my planner on a small desk in my kitchen – and it, inevitably, becomes a catch-all for all of my receipts, mail & scraps that I accumulate through the month. So, in an effort to be a bit more organized with all of these little bits, I created a little pocket with a scrap of my favorite patterned paper.

I simply folded the paper in half, adhered the two sides together at the bottom and used my Cinch to make the holes. Then I cut a small slit from the side of the new pocket to each hole so that I could just place the pocket around the binder coil.

At the end of the month, I’ll simply take everything out of the pocket and file it away.

For the second half of my spread I added a few more little embellishments and did some stamping with the darling little circle stamps in the Notes From Today stamp.

I often cut up the cards that come in the kits and use smaller parts of them in my projects…it’s really one of my favorite ways to use up the cards in my kits.

The darling little yellow striped circles and the word “SUMMER” are all from 3×4 cards in the August kit … I just love the way they all look on my page!
