Plan With Me Using the Essentials

Plan With Me Using the Essentials

Hey planner friends! It’s Rachel again and I am back on the blog to share a little “plan with me” using my favorite basic essentials on the Carpe Diem Planner website.

Ah…nothing more satisfying than a fresh new week! First up, I use the clear number stickers to add my dates in my weekly planner insert. If you are like me and are a planner opportunist (hee hee, planner peace?! Try all the planners for me, please!) then having undated pages is great because you can not only change up the type of inserts, but the size of inserts, too. With so many beautiful types and sizes of planners, it seems a shame to be tied to just one! I always have a set of clear number stickers stashed in the pockets of all my planners so I jump into that particular planner any time I want.

A quick tip: I use a pair of tweezers to help with the placement of these stickers.

Once the week is dated, it is time to add my plans! This is where the FUNtioncal planning comes in. I like to use a mix of icons, boxes and headers to add my plans and these three stamps set help me do that.

I’ve mentioned my love of stamping before (see this post!) and for this week, I loved getting to use a color palette that matches the fun decorative elements.

Some planner girls make awesome “before the pen” spreads, but I tend to write in my plans right away. If plans move or change, you can just cover it with washi or put a sticker over it!

After the plans are all laid out and penned it, I spend some time decorating! This part has no function, but certainly helps me scratch the creative itch with no pressure to make it “perfect”.

Since my Aztec Black and White traveler’s notebook is all decked out for Christmas,

I decided to use washi and stickers from the Merry and Bright Collection, along with few stickers from the awesome Planners Basics sticker tablet. If I could only have one sticker tablet, it would definitely be this one. All the different colors gives the option to decorate with so many different color palettes.

Once I’m done planning, it’s time put my insert back inside my decorated insert cover. I love making insert covers because it allows to switch up my setup without having to change my inserts.

Now, everything goes back in my travelers notebook. I can’t help but take a moment and admire all of the delicious, decorative goodies in my pockets and on my travelers notebook covers. This set-up is gives me all the heart eyes, and motivates me to open my planner and get things done!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoyed my walking through how I plan my week in my travelers notebook. Do you have a process for planning out your week? Leave a comment here on my instagram and tell me about it!
