Planner Peek: Kristen
I have another very creative Planner Peek to show in in this new installment in the Planner Peek series! I don’t know about you, but I just LOVE being able to sneak a peek inside other people’s planners. I love to see how they use them, how they decorate them, what type of planner they use, etc. I have asked my readers to submit photos of their planners and to tell us a bit about how they use their planning system. (You can submit your planner by filling out this really short and easy form. If you’re selected, you’ll get a free copy of the digital Sweet Life Planner worth $35!) All of the Planner Peeks in this series have been so fun to see.
Kristen used scrapbook paper and printed her name on another sheet of paper, gluing that on to the front of her DIY planner. Kristen also makes her own weekly calendar pages and uses other free pages from the internet for her contacts, special dates (which she uses as her daily gratitude journal),, Christmas planning section and to-do pages in the back of her planner.
On her weekly pages, Kristen jots down hat she needs to do for each page. At the top of each page she has stickers that have her daily Bible reading passages on them. Kristen also made stickers for special dates like birthdays and anniversaries, and also for appointments and other special occasions (parties, dinner engagements, date nights, etc). She placed owl washi tape at the bottom of the pages on the weeks her hubby works – he has a 7 on/7 off schedule and this helps her know at a glance what his schedule is.
Kristen also uses scrapbook paper to make pocket pages to go in between the different sections of her planner. Kristen makes great use of scrapbook paper!
Kristen states that, “With my contacts page I placed business cards on sticky tabs that I punched holes in so I could slip them in the rings of my planner.” This is a very clever and useful idea.
This is one of my favorite parts of Kristen's planner, her “thankful” page. Kristen uses her special dates page to jot a quick thing that she is grateful for each day. She says it is nothing spectacular, just something to help her remember to be thankful for the little things that are so easy to take for granted.
Kristen uses a dashboard she made from a dollar store cutting mat to place small sticky notes on and jot things that she wants to remember but does not have a specific day to be done. She also has extra post-its attached to the inside front cover for quick and easy access. After her weekly pages, Kristen made Thanksgiving and Christmas planning pages to help out during the holidays. The last section of her planner is blank pages to jot notes and to do lists. Kristen has an Erin Condren pen holder attached to the back inside cover of her planner to hold a pen. She then took the whole finished product to Staples to have it bound.
Kristen has a very unique, very creative planner with some great ideas that I might have to try for my own planners!

I love all the DIY in this one! Especially the addition of more pockets! That’s the one area my planner is lacking, is there aren’t really any functional pockets, ha!
Have you tried finishing any DIY posts/videos about how to make your own folder pockets?
They definitely are a great bonus to have!!
I love the daily Bible reading stickers! You gave me a great idea.
I absolutely love reading your sneak peek into other people’s planners posts. They are the best! I’ve recently been addicted to planners and trying to stay organized (within limits cuz I’m a mess) mostly for school which if I’m going to be organized it should be for that!!
Thanks for the perks that we get 🙂
