My Customized 2013 Calendar & Planner!

So, I promised a peek at my 2013 calendar & planner with my customization, and here it goes!

First of all, I decided the cover was beautiful but needed a little pizzazz.  I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut out vinyl decorations.  I found a beautiful damask pattern (to match the blog and my personalized sewing labels) and used the same font I use in my sewing labels as well.  Here is the result!

I obscured my last name's initial for privacy, but I absolutely adore everything else!

As for the inside, I used the pockets for a few items such as sticky notes, flags, and blank To Do list forms.  I used a personalized stamp to enter my information, should my planner get lost.  And my favorite part of the inside is my vinyl labeled tabs!

Open, sesame!


I tinkered with the idea of using a labeler, but I wanted all of the fonts to match.  One tip I would have is to either use a thicker font or bold the fonts just a little.  I had to deal with some super skinny letters since they were so tiny!

How do I love thee, let me count the ways...


One thing I will definitely be using frequently is the thinner To Do list sheet for more important tasks for the day.  I have a To Do tab with every single item I need done, but I plan on transferring the most important items for the day onto a list and placing it in the calendar section.  That way, I can check on my day and know what tasks and errands I need to squeeze into my schedule!

Plus a million more items...


I also love the pocket folders that you can pop in anywhere.  They're great for holding invitations, coupons, and concert tickets in this case!

I'm sure the system will change as I realize items that are more important, and others that are unnecessary.  And that's what I love about this system!  It's so flexible!  I also bought the arc hole punch in order to be able to print out items and pop them into the planner easily.

Now, time to attack that To Do list!
