Hello again my sweet Daisy friends!!
It’s time for another round of planner set-up!! I am so happy to be showing this August planner set-up! I feel that my style is always changing and my set-up ever evolving! Can you relate? Please tell me I’m not alone!!
For this glorious month of August I chose the Simple Stories Carpe Diem Planner in “Marigold.” I can’t tell you how much I love the way the planner kit and add on go with this planner!! Its definitely a match made in field of sunflowers!
I love to start out with everything laid out in front of me so I can see all the things!! I like to have the free printables ready to go as well.
Then I make the dashboards! It’s easy to use the dashboards that CD has to coordinate with the kits, and by taking the exclusive papers from CD I simply glue them to the back, punch the holes and wah-lah! A beautiful dashboard!! I will also add a tab to the side of the dashboard I did not punch to complete!
I love making the pockets of my planner POP!! So, I always fill them as full as I can! I add tons of paperclips, washi cards, journaling cards, sticky notes, and the exclusive CD die-cuts!! In the big pockets I keep my stickers and leftover papers that I didn’t use for dashboards for travel and easy access.
I used the transparency that was available this month at the very front of my planner.
I enjoy decorating the month-at-a-glance (MAG)!! I use washi to show vacations and trips (there were none planned at the time of photographing). I keep my important dates here as well, such as birthdays and anniversaries. I use the front for a list of scripture writing and I put the CD challenge printable as a tip-in (also not available at time of photography). On the back of the MAG there is the year at a glance. I use it for a bucket list!!
My favorite part of my planner is my Daily pages!! I may not use them everyday, but they for sure the get the most use!! I add everything all on Monday that I need to accomplish for the week. If I do not get a task complete I just add it to the top of the next day!! Of course there are tasks that get added daily as well when need be! Some days I do a ton of decorating and some days I don’t do any! And thankfully CD pages don’t even need extra decorations! They are beautiful without! I divide up my dailies by weeks using the week at a glance (WAG) page. This is a new addition to my planner. Laura Daniels is where I saw this little tip! I use the WAG for my social media planning. I washi tape the WAG onto the seventh day as a tip in. At the beginning of the week all the pages (for the week at hand only) are tucked neatly inside the WAG and everyday I untuck the needed page! Thanks Laura!! I also use the book mark from the free printables to keep my place. On the back of the bookmark is where I keep a daily log/monthly time line of what we did everyday in the month! It really helps with memory keeping.
(Just FYI i will probably use these little ants from the DITL kit on every single page!)
Lastly I put in the week on two pages. I use these for memory keeping! I add pockets, pictures, receipts, recipes, business cards and all kinds of memorabilia here!
Thank you all for stopping by to see how the August kits were used in this set-up!!
If you have a minute can you answer a question in the comments below?? If so, I want to know what you look for in a blog post! More words… More pictures… or a happy mix of both? I would love to hear from you all and get your input! After all these blogs are for you!!
Thank you again!

Absolutely beautiful and functional! Thank you for sharing.
I am so happy you could stop in for a peek!! Have a blessed day!
I loved reading your explanations and especially the different steps you take when setting up your month! I love pretty pictures in blogposts and I am very often inspired by them but I wouldn’t have been able to get the info you shared in writing from the photos alone. Thanks for taking the time, I definitely enjoyed reading!
I am so glad you enjoyed!! Thank you for your response!! Sometimes ya just don’t know! XOXO
Hi! I’m brand new to CD and I love seeing your set-up. It is inspiring as start with my first CD kit. Definitely keep both the photos and lots of description. As a newbie, I would love links to tutorials or videos that show how to create some of the items you mentioned like “tip-in” and Laura Daniels idea. I would also love to see more “after” blogs of pages after the month is over.
Hi Janet, thank you for your comment! We are trying to incorporate your suggestions in future blogposts, thank you for pointing them out!
Janet, thank you for your response! I love hearing from you! Thank you for suggestions!! I appreciate you!! Enjoy your kits!! XOXO
