New Month New Planner Setup with the My Escape Collection
A new month brings fresh opportunities including a new planner set up featuring the My Escape Collection
. You may be a more functional planner, adding bits of the collection here and there or using elements to compliment your list-making, highlight events or mark off events on your calendar. Or maybe your planner is a canvas for creativity and you love to add decorative dashboards, fill your pockets with pretty extras and embellish dividers. Maybe, your planner is a little of both! There is no wrong way to set up your planner and your style can change based on your needs and wants for that month. We have two more fabulous setups to share with you so let’s get to it!
planner setups are always swoon-worthy and this month is no exception!
“Each month, my planner setup begins with a list. Just having the list written out and in plain sight makes it so much easier for me to make mini-planning sessions more productive.
My planner set-up is consistently pretty simple – an A5 rings that are perfectly complemented by the notepad holder from the planner add-on kit and zippered sticker pouch from the planner kit.
My first project is always a sticker folder because I want to take a photo of the sticker folder with full sheets of stickers. I love Cocoa Daisy stickers so much that if I begin setting up my planner first, there will be no stickers left! I used both planner and memory-keeping papers, along with a trimmed-down pocket card from the My Escape Modern Memory Keeping Kit
, the flair from the planner classified kit, and the washi from the My Escape Modern Memory Keeping Kit
. I tucked a few sheets of the notepad from the planner kit and the glitter dots from the My Escape Travelers Notebook Memory Keeping Kit
into the pocket and I’m ready for on-the-go planning.
One of my planner goals is to become a better stamper, so I decided to stamp all of my days of the week in June. It was an easy decision to make since the outlined alpha set came in the My Escape Travelers Notebook Memory Keeping Kit
. It’s a perfect match for the New Chapter Alpha Stamp
(still available in the Cocoa Daisy store). I personally like to set up all of my weekly spreads before the month begins. I made a clip/in pocket with the vellum from the My Escape Travelers Notebook Memory Keeping Kit
to document our long weekend road trip. The wooden ephemera travel piece from the classified MK kit adds just a little extra.
This dashboard was so much fun to make. I gathered sand (and the tiny piece of driftwood from the beach) to make a “Polaroid” shaker. I reached back to May’s kits for the alphas and used the rub-ons from the My Escape Modern Memory Keeping Kit
to create the header. I pulled in some die cuts, and half of one of the fold-over flip flop stickers, as well as the wooden ephemera from the My Escape Classified: Memory Keeping Kit
to make my beach-loving heart happy.
Cocoa Daisy does such a wonderful job of creating perfectly coordinated washi each month and I like to dedicate one of my dashboards to washi. I added one washi from my stash and the thinner map washi is from South Beach (July 2019). I topped the washi with a vellum circle and I took the letters from the May kit and colored them black with a sharpie marker to make them black.”

This is my currently page. I use a dashboard from the My Escape Dashboard Kit
. I include some stamping from the My Escape Modern Memory Keeping Kit
and my stash to decorate and make some sections where I’ll write the title of films seen or books read. On the right page, I stamped the “currently” word on dot graph paper. During the month, I’ll add book covers, film posters, which I print in mini size on my home printer.
I love decorating the other side of the dashboards. Along the page border, I placed a strip of washi and created structure on the page using elements from the Free Printable. Then I added the boxes (classic sticker kit and planner sticker kit). The title is made with a geotag sticker from the Daisy Sticker Add-On Kit,
alpha’s from the Classic Sticker Kit,
and a shopping sticker from the Planner Kit.
To finish, I embellished my page with stickers from various kits. I use this page to track my online shopping by ticking the heart box when the parcel is at home.
One of the most important pages in my planner is the monthly task page. The page is from the My Escape Planner Kit
A5 inserts. I use it for a quick day’s number reference when needed. It also a fun space in my planner to add some extra decoration.”
