This week's set up & a walk through of my EC Life Planner in my Filofax

Here's what this week's spread looks like.  I used green, purple and a soft yellow this week and created a bird on a wire type theme.



I've seen a lot of people use washi to label the weekend, so I decided to create a bracket label to fit at the top and the bottom of my weekend instead.




I made this little bird clip for the week.



And as a first this week I made my own magnet page marker.  The idea came to me because I wanted another bird somewhere on the spread but I didn't want it permanent and I didn't want to stick a paperclip on the side and it stick out.  So I picked up a package of craft magnets from Hobby Lobby, they were I think a $1 or $2, and they have adhesive on one side.  I made the bird using my cameo, I created the background shape (the yellow) copied a mirrored image and then welded it together at the tail feather. Then I cut the top section (the purple) I wish I would have duplicated the top portion so you could see it from both sides so I think on next week's I'll do that.



Also this week I made more mini bunting banners, I used another old school punch and just cut them to look like banners.



Last week when I shared last week's spread...



I had several requests for my hydrate and a habit stickers so I created two free files you can download.  The first is a the hydrate by itself in png format.


This can be used just like a jpeg you can insert it into a word document the same way.  There is just no background, it's just the image.  You can get that {HERE}. [PERSONAL USE ONLY, DO NOT DISTRIBUTE OR SELL]

Now for the Hydrate/Habit sticker, I don't think everyone is going to use just my same habits so I created a single square that has the hydrate part and blank sections so you can add your own habit.


I did include the M-S circles so you won't have to worry about that part.  Just insert the jpeg into word and then add a text box on top.  Type what ever you want, just make sure you right click on the text box and check no lines, that way it will look like the words belong on the jpeg.  You can find it {HERE}.  [PERSONAL USE ONLY, DO NOT DISTRIBUTE OR SELL]

Below you will find a walk through video of my initial setup of my Erin Condren Life Planner that I trimmed down and punched to fit in my A5 Filofax Finsbury.

The button to print the hydrate will not push in order to download. Is there something that can be done about that? I love all these things that you have posted! Thank you.

Hello April. I just found your youtube channel and I'm so impressed with your creativity. You've definitely inspired me. I was curious about the link for your hydrate stickers, it's not active. Is there another place to get it?

I know I am a couple years late to the party, but I just got a happy planner for my birthday a couple weeks ago and I found your blog through Pinterest. Thank you so much for sharing this, it is exactly what I have wanted since I got my planner.
