How To Decorate a Planner (For Beginners)

20160920_232125-copyIf you are into crafting, you have most likely heard the buzz about planning in a planner. It is a form of art that has carried over into your everyday planning calendar! Being an avid crafter, I just had to try this – but didn’t want to invest in an expensive planner just in case it wasn’t my proverbial “cup of tea”.

My recommendation for beginners is to purchase an inexpensive pocket planner/calendar at the dollar store and try it first, on a smaller scale. If you love it, you can go on to purchase a larger planner. But if it isn’t for you, then you haven’t invested much so it’s no loss, really.

Under the video below, I will also provide a list of supplies you could use as well as a link to the FREE paperclip bow template provided by Megan Marshall with Little Hot Tamale. You can check out her YouTube channel also.

Again, don’t be discouraged if your first layout isn’t perfect. It takes practice and a lot of trial and error to see what you like. If you click on the video below, you’ll notice that I did a couple of layouts myself, since I wasn’t entirely pleased with the results of my first “go” at it. I’m a newbie at this too and still working to get a result I love. The video posted below is meant to give you some ideas and inspiration to get started. Let your imagination and creativity flow! 🙂
