To be quite honest, I am not a planner type of person. Not because I want to, but because I always forget. Remember six months ago I did a post about my 2015 blog planner (post here), well I have not been using it. I found that it does not really pique my interest to use it at all. I always forgot and it annoys me because I knew how much more organized I would have been if I used it.
Recently I was re-visiting some YouTubers I used to watch and she mentioned Glam Planning. The idea that a really nice planner+stickers+colors=glam planning. This vlogger was none other than Elle Fowler and her video, Planner 101: Intro to Glam Planning. Glam Planning is also what I like to call where Planning meets Scrapbooking. Now, as a 17-year-old, she got my attention when she mentioned stickers.
At first, like many, I thought this was pretty childish. However, after watching more, I realized this was actually brilliant! I decided that maybe I should give it a try. When I looked into the Erin Condren planner I realized that it was really expensive ($50, $40 with coupons). I decided why not make a test page on photoshop. After creating one, I tested it for a few days and really liked it. I thought why don't I upload in on the internet for everyone to try before buying the original.
Some things to remember about these pages:
- Please do not redistribute, just link this page.
- I ran out of room for a Sunday section, so I made it like the to-do list. I wanted to keep the pages at the normal US paper size.
- Printables are slightly different than the ones in the picture above because on the flower buttons I put proper credit to Angie Makes and myself. Please do not remove it ^_^
- I left room next to the days of the week to put the dates.
I will continue using these for the next few weeks and maybe by the beginning of August I can reach a final consensus on whether or not to buy the actual planner. I also bought some stickers and washi tape to decorate the few pages I will be using. A little note would be that constantly printing these pages out are pretty impractical considering the amount of printer ink and paper will be wasted. These are just to test try to see if buying the actual Erin Condren is right for. Other than that, enjoy ^_^
