Hello Sweet Friends! Its Cheryl here to show you how to create quick planner layouts that aren’t short on pretty! As a mom of two boys that also works full time, I don’t always have time to create super involved planner layouts but I’ll admit that I do prefer pretty planner pages! So here are a few quick and easy DIY Planner layouts!
Easy Monthly DIY Planner Layout
Here is a quick and easy way to create monthly planner overview pages to help you keep track of important dates, monthly goals, and your monthly to-do list.
Use a Pencil to Draw a Border in Your Planner
First I drew a border in my planner pages in pencil, then I stamped some of the flowers from the Bouquet Stamp set onto sticker paper, fussy cut the images and placed them onto a few corners of my planner pages, however, you can stamp directly into your planner pages to save time.
Next, I stamped “November” right on the pencil line on the upper left-hand corner using a stamp from the Monthly Script stamp set.
Write Planner Days of the Month in Pencil
I went over the pencil border with a black pen, let it dry, and then erased any visible pencil marks. On the first page, I wrote out the numbers 1-30 for the days of the month which will be used to track important dates of the month. Lastly, I stamped out some banners using the Banners and More Stamp set and wrote in “goals”, “to-do”, and “notes” on the second page. Check out the picture below to see these pages in action!
Easy Weekly DIY Planner Layout
Weekly layouts are so key for a busy mom! With so many tasks that need to be balanced between work, home, and school, we need a place to capture the week’s to-do lists!
Create a Decorative Banner on Top of Planner Layout
First I created a decorative banner using the Bouquet Stamp Set and the Cartoon Filled Alpha Stamp set. For my B6 traveler’s notebook, I cut a piece of sticker paper about 1.75” x 6.25”, placed a piece of scrap paper behind the sticker paper, and randomly stamped flowers onto the strip of sticker paper until it was relatively full. Then I stamped “Nov. 18” and drew a border using a pencil.
Pencil Line Dates onto the Planner Layout
Next, I traced over the border using a black pen, and then I penciled in some lines for the dates of the week. I stamped the dates using the Cartoon Alpha Stamp set and six checklist banner from the Planner starter kit onto sticker paper (you can stamp directly onto your planner if you’d like), fussy cut them. I placed the numbers between the penciled in lines and the banners above and below the dates. I also placed the decorative banner onto the far right of the planner layout.
Lastly, I wrote in the days of the week except for “Saturday and Sunday” and used “weekend” instead. There you have it! Quick and easy DIY planner layouts for busy moms (or busy people in general)!
