Hi lovely people!
It’s Rachel here, and I’m sharing my April planner set up with you today using Up and Away. Unusually for me, I’m not using personal rings, but a personal Traveler’s Notebook from Foxy Fix.
Inside, I have three inserts. The first one is my Daisy Dori for April – I used some of the puffy alphas from the Pocket Memory Keeping Kit, enamel dots and that AMAZING striped paper to decorate the cover. This is my journal/ memory keeping, with space for each day plus lots of other pages too – I love how much space is in these!
As I did in March, I took apart and rearranged the pages slightly before stitching them back together. This gives me a more continuous section for my daily journaling, with memory keeping pages at either end of the dori.
I split the grid and dot grid pages into 3 sections – and use each one running horizontally across the page for one day. I also like to add journal cards and stickers as the month goes on!
My second insert is the Cocoa Daisy Weeks booklet for Q2 – this covers April, May and June (anyone else VERY intrigued by June?!) I love to include the gorgeous pocket cards and have some quotes in between inserts and dashboards.
The first double spread of the Daisy Weeks booklet is plain dot grid – I added some stickers and checklists to create a space to write my goals for the next few months.
I actually got out the stamps this month – it’s a rare event when that happens as I find it challenging even with all the help and tips from amazing people out there! But – there’s no mistake that a sticker here or there can’t fix, and I love this font for the numbers.
The weekly pages is where it gets interesting…I tipped in the week on one page from the personal ring inserts, since I had them anyway, and I’m going to use these for any key things happening in the week, with a checklist section on the back.
Then, on the daily sections, I have space to jot down the top things that need to happen that day, plus social media reminders. I’m hoping it will be enough room – but I still have one more insert in the TN where I can write longer lists if I need to.
I’ve found that a pencil board is really helpful for popping under the page when I’m writing, as with all the stickers and diecuts I love to use, the pages can get a little bumpy. I made this one with a dashboard plus some stickers and of course, washi tape on the back!
How gorgeous is this?! It’s not secret that I LOVE rainbows, and this just makes my heart happy!
My final insert is a plain dot grid notebook, which I covered with some more of that amazing striped paper. I then have a petal vinyl dashboard insert from FoxyFix which is holding a notepad and sticky notes, as well as the pen loop from the planner kit.
I hope you enjoyed looking through my April set up – it’s fun to try a new format! If you’d like to take a closer look, you can find a full flipthrough video on my YouTube channel too.
Until next time lovely people, enjoy your planning!
