WIP Planner & Creative Planning E-Class

Hi friends,

I am loving Christy Tomlinson and Cori Steiker (theresetgirl)’s Creative Planning ecourse. I’ll be doing a review of the class after I finish the class. In the meantime, I have started assembling a personal size (3.7″ wide by 6.7″ long) Day Timer planner (they call it portable).

I love my Happy Planner, but it is too big to carry around with me day to day, so I put together this Personal size planner mainly as an extensive list making tool.  Yes, I’ve tried Evernote, but, well, that’s a post for another day…

I admit I have been quite intimidated by the trend of decorating planner pages. I tried some extensive decorating in my Happy Planner but found I’m a more minimalist. That said, I still want a pretty, customized planner.  This class showed me the way.  Thanks Christy and Cori!

Here is a flip through of my Work In Progress.  I already have plans for a color-coordinated planner or two and more so stay tuned for updates. It’s quirky, but I love it so far.

I am using a mix of free and purchased printables, as well as temporarily using the page that came with the planner, although I really am not enjoying them. But, WIP, right?

 Also included with today’s post is a short tutorial on how to use an adjustable 7 hole punch for 6 hole Personal size planners, which are used by Day Timer, Kikki K, Webster’s Color Crush, and others.

Happy planning!
