The Planner Society A5 Planner


I was excited to pick up one of these Planner Society A5 planners that were recently offered on their website. This is a planner from 2016/2017. I did not buy one of these when they were first offered. I didn’t need a new planner right now, of course. But, it looks quite lovely on my bookshelf. πŸ₯°

Now, this planner is “imperfect”. Mine has warps and the binder rings were not placed properly, but I love the aesthetic of this planner, which matches the current March box. I can deal with the flaws. I still set it up the day I got it in the mail! I’m contemplating taking the rings out and just using it as a binder, but I haven’t just yet. πŸ˜‰

Carpe Diem Planner | Summer Setup

Hello! Today I wanted to share how I set up my Coral A5 Carpe Diem Planner for summer. This coral planner matched way more than you think it would! I love how the colors of my accessories pop against it. I mostly used the DCWV Bahama Mama paper pad from Michael’s to set this planner up. I made a few dividers and cut up some of the quote cards that were included in the paper pad. I also used a couple pieces from my May Planner Society kit. I used a green rosette fabric trim from my stash to pull it all together. The pineapple charm at the bottom of the planner on the rings is by Vera Bradley.

I hope you enjoyed seeing my setup! Do you change up your planners according to the season?

Webster’s Pages Family

I just wanted to share my Webster’s Pages love with you today… I have been a fan of this company for at least 6 or more years now. I loved their papers and embellishments when I was deep into scrapbooking (their warehouse sales were awesome!), and now I love their planning products.

So, here’s my little WP family…

2 TN’s, 2 personal size planners, 1 A5, and 1 Composition Notebook.


Carpe Diem Spring Setup

I thought it was about time to change the setup for this lovely coral Carpe Diem A5 planner of mine. I am so ready for spring, and we had such such a tease of spring weather a few weeks ago (well, except for this past week- more snow!). I went right to work to make my planner ready for spring time. I got out one of my favorite collections, The Rest Girl for Simple Stories, and chose some of my favorite elements of this line. I put just a few accessories in the front pockets, then made some fun dividers.



I wasn’t sure what I wanted to use this fun page with all the boxes for, but it finally occurred to me to just embellish it!


I love how my little planner looks, and it makes me so happy to look at it everyday!


Carpe Diem February Setup


I realized I never shared my Carpe Diem planner setup for February here on the blog, so here it is!

I love my beautiful coral planner, and February seemed like a perfect month to dress her up! I made some dividers in a pink, black, and floral theme (perfect for Valentine’s Day) and added some fun Cocoa Daisy cards in the pocket.

When I got this planner last fall, I remembered I had this lovely rosette ribbon by Dear Lizzy, so I secured it to the front of my planner. I have loved it so much, I never removed it! While I don’t use this planner daily (though I should…), I love leaving it open by my computer desk. Instant inspiration for sure!

Thanks for stopping by!
