DIY Planners

A few months ago I found this website that had some DIY Planner Templates. I fell in love with all the templates, but really wanted something a bit more "me."

I started playing around in PhotoShop and came up with some cool 2011 Calendar Templates. Here is what I used.

  • Plastic Dividers from Cropper Hopper, cut down to size to use as covers.
  • 5 tab label dividers (just happen to find them in our office supply section of cast offs. You know the cast off section...You want it, it's yours.)
  • Clear pencil pouch from an old planner I had laying around.
  • Calendar Template

Some images of the inside. 

I plan on doing a lot more. There are a few more templates I want to put together. 

As much as I try to keep myself organized on my phone's calendar section, it just never works out. Maybe because I am more of a visual person and really I just love to doodle. :D 

If you are looking to make your own, check out this website - Flickriver DIY Planners - for more ideas.

Very nice. Did you make your own calendar templates? Was wondering if you would be sharing them if you did. Looks like a good project for me to do. :)

I tried to to this for YEARS. . It would always take so long to make the pages JUST RIGHT that half the year would be gone... LOL Now most things are electronic and with a smart phone I can get and post to my calendar, phone book, Evernote, etc. anywhere. I completely understand the VISUAL part I do have a hard time following my To Do List.. :)
