Planner Love: Fun Details for Your Planner

So the first time I'm going to be showing you is the quarrel line and all these pieces coordinate, just like you saw with the many album we're making pretty much mix and match anything, and they're going to look really good together and work well together. So the first thing and what I'd say is really important. I didn't understand how important till he started using a planner is the dashboard. They call it a dashboard, but what that means is the front page in the back page, the's air laminated pages that kind of protect everything on the interior. So as you're like opening and closing the's, our laminates, you could decorate them where you could write on them, or add in whatever information you want onto the dashboard. So each line has a different style, and the front on coral has this great straight and says, make today count in the back has the gold foil dot government that we love from our trend line. Um, we also have an each line one of my very things, which are the different patt...

erns for your tabs for your monthly tab, so these could be monthly, if that's what helps you the most, but they could also be other things as well, so they come with really beautiful gold, foiled stickers that are clear and you can add them onto each tab so you could do it by the month and there's two of every month so you can do the front and the back so you're easily able to flip back and forth but we also have like meetings, goals, contacts, vacation birthdays so I have actually bought two sets of these for me so I can keep my months but then also add in the extra things that I want and you can see that there's tons of gold foiling in it and they all are decorated on the front and the back and so they're just really, really fun tow add into a planner some of them give us like motivational thoughts all right and, uh one of my favorites and one of our most popular journals, so really fun way to kind of organize but keep it pretty, which is exactly what we want we also have, um in each line folders so that you can add receipts, tickets, little things like that and these air especially handy if you're using your planner as also weighed memory keep you can see they all have just fun patterns and gold willing one of my favorite items are the stickers what is it about stickers that they're just like so fantastic? I don't know maybe it's because it reminds us of like being young but so these actually have the holes punched in them they go right in the back of your planners that you always have access to them on dh they're completely practical so there that's what I really love about this whole line is there everything's really usable to keep yourself working nights but it's also really, really beautiful, so I want to look at it so we've got goals and notes obsessed we have are two duis to call that we can add and these are really cool, so I used the's a lot and my own planner I'm doing all the marketing directing so social media is a huge thing for me, so I'll add in hash tags on days when I need to like do something really big and social media exercise I don't really is that one so but lots of people do birthdays, just little arrows places you have to go, so there are really practical, but they're really cute as well and then just little tabs um ah lot of times all used these dots to sort of mark something that's really important coming up we also have the same enamel shapes that you're going to see in our scrapbooking line. We now have to go with the planner line these I love these air bookmarks, so whether you're using a planner or not these air really cool to have and look really good these air sticky notes and they're actually sticky pads so there's eight of each design that you can again used to mark specific pages that you need to mark we also have penned that match so even if you're not a plan a reser the pins are really beautiful and write really smoothly and then we have journals which were really beautiful and they're in this smaller size you can keep them in your planner if you want or you can just keep them in your bag to coordinate and I will open this up so we have hello heart and hurry her a a task list all right there's the paper lined or blank it is blank paper and they're stitched um journals yes ok the next line is one that I really love because it's all about the neutrals black the cream and the gold and it's just a really fantastic light and you're going to see all the same pieces so you can just go with a different look but still organized in the same way so we have the the magnetic clips we have these sticky notes our enamel shapes um this goes along with any of the lines the's air acrylic cut pieces the's would also be really great and scrapbooking or projects these are the dividers and I'll just pulled us out so you can see all the cool patterns and again they have the gold foiled stickers that you can add to each of the tabs and then the gold foiling on the actual patterns. And they just have really beautiful, lovely you totally rock motivational ahs. Well, um, taps so I love and you can see that shine slow pretty. They also have the folders as well. The dashboard and the backers gold foiled and then the stickers and these are the ones that I love the most because they are natural so you could mix and match them with any line if you wanted tio pull those out. But you can see can keep completely organized with all of our little icons. And here are the pence and then the last line I waited to show you because this is the one that everyone is loving and that we've used in almost all of our cox is, which is our my story line. So here are the pens and the journals, and they have that same butterfly that we all loved and the floral and the black and white elements, and you can see, um, the magnet clips, the sticky notes have an extra pin. This is a notebook that you can actually add to the back of your plan, and I'll show you in just a minute, dashboard all of the file folder pockets. The dividers and these have the exact same patterns that you saw in that beautiful many albums so if you really loved the many album this would be the line for you but all those really great beautiful patterns plus little motivational elements much more fun to organize and then the stickers as well in the same patterns and colors so it's really beautiful so I wanted to show it to you all set up so I've added the journal into the pocket and the enamel shapes pins air in um I like to put a dashboard at the front and the back just to kind of protect the pages and then you can see the notebook fits right into the back pocket so you can just took it right in has a cardboard back and they are double sided so when you put them in you can write on both sides which is really nice and then you can see the tabs work from back to front as well so I wanted to make a few and show you a few extra things that you can add you know because it's never enough all right so we have and here's one of those clips can clip several papers together we've marched special days I think I marched my anniversary in here sure that so with some of those enamel stickers so it's just a fun way to kind of keep yourself organized and not just fun but functional

Watched a little of this and was disappointed by her frequent mumbling, making it impossible to understand quite a bit of what she was saying. I didn't find her ideas very innovative but didn't watch the whole thing.
