Sometimes, I find myself thinking completely "literally" when it comes to using kit products on a project. I might think, “Oh, I don’t use boxes or half boxes in my planner so I can’t use this kit!” or “These washi strips aren’t the right width or height so I can’t use them!” Those thoughts couldn’t be further from the truth.
I've learned how to really use SC kits to suit my needs and fit my “planner personality.” I finally feel like I’m finding that elusive planner peace!
I wanted to use the "Summit" Planner and Documenter Kits to make a weekly spread in my Happy Planner™ but it took a bit of tweaking to get it just right.
The first thing I did was trim the floral patterned paper to exactly the height and width of the last (bottom) box in my spread. Then I adhered the paper to my pages. It adds a nice, fresh pop of color to my week. I adhered the cork January accent, a washi strip, and some scattered puffy stickers to the patterned paper to add some dimension.
Next, I added some overall goals to the left column. I love the clear stickers because they give the appearance of stamping without any of the mess. I'm NOT a practiced stamper and I always end up messing up!
I trimmed the washi stickers in half and used them to divide the two top boxes into four boxes. This better suited my needs and helped me to break my day down into conquerable chunks.
Next, I added three puffy stickers in a visual triangle to draw the eye to the lists on the page.
Last but not least, I added a star, asterisk, or plus sign (from the mini alphabet sheets) to the boxes as bullet points.
I love the way this turned out and I couldn’t be happier with my productivity this week!
Remember, just because your planner style doesn’t perfectly match a kit’s contents, it doesn’t mean you can’t tailor the items to fit your needs!
