Stay organized and inspired all month long with inspiration from our Creative Team! The following planner tips are perfect for pairing with this month's "Hey Girl" Kit, or just tuck them into your back pocket for a time when your creative mojo is low. Either way, we hope they’ll help inspire your next planner spread!
Create a dashboard.
Guest designer Kim Oedekoven created a fun and colorful dashboard to sit opposite her meal plan page in her spread, Dinner - April Meal & Grocery Planner. The white accents on her black sticky note are a great finishing touch!
Plan your meals.
On her project, Daily: Meal Planning, Julie Kinneeveauk used the fork and knife icon stamp from the Meal Planning stamp set to create a simple space for her meals. By separating breakfast, lunch, and dinner by color, she can quickly see what she needs to prepare at a glance!
April Orr used the black sticky note and white gel pen from this month's Planner Kit to plan out her weekly meals on her spread, TN Meal Plan. By pairing them with the stamps from the Meal Planning stamp set, she ensured meal prep is fun and creative!
Keep it simple.
Planning your day-to-day tasks doesn't have to be complicated! Guest designer Nina Christensen created a simple yet effective weekly planner page for her project, Hey Girl | A Week Planned in My Traveler's Notebook. By pairing her to-do's with a colorful dashboard on the opposite page, the whole spread comes together perfectly!
Kim Oedekoven made a few simple additions to her notebook spread to create her Walmart List - April Meal & Grocery Planner, and was left with a gorgeous result! We love how she creatively dressed up her shopping list for the week with this month's Planner Kit!
Memory-keep in your planner.
To document a recent trip, Haley Pettit included photos and journaling in her planner for her project, Seattle Weekend Getaway Planner. Memory keeping in your planner is a great way to stretch your creativity and expand your crafty horizons.
April Orr recorded a big day for her son as a fun insert in her notebook on her spread, May TN. Memory-keeping spreads are perfect for breaking up your to-do lists and regular plans, and are a great way to preserve your memories!
Incorporate shapes into your design.
On her spread, Morning Sunshine - April Meal & Grocery Planner, Kim Oedekoven arranged her list into the shape of a sunshine. This fun technique is a great way to inspire your creativity and use your supplies in fun ways!
