Hey, daisies! I’m back with another planner setup, and I just know that you will be shocked – SHOCKED, I tell you! – to see that I have changed my planner system AGAIN, haha. I don’t know what happened, but I suddenly wanted to go back to a very simple Dori setup again, so that’s what I’ve got for you today. (Actually, I do know what happened – school started, virtual teaching is impossible, I’m spending a zillion hours a day working on school stuff, and I felt a keen desire to simplify my planner for this month. So here we are!)
Simplifying for me this month means using two Dori booklets and that’s it – the standard Dori that comes in the standard size Planner Kit and the Simple Dori that comes in the Traveler’s Notebook Memory Keeping Kit (or can be purchased on its own when supplies allow). To house these two inserts, I’m using a Foxy Fix standard size single cover in Botanical Poppy with a jump band.
The inside of my cover has a three-segment vinyl adhesive pocket, to which I’ve added two pocket cards from the Pocket Memory Keeping Kit and the sticky note card (with a few sticky notes on it) from the Planner Kit. Each insert has a vinyl dashboard around it, and here is the first thing I see when I open my planner – SImon, of course! (His pocket card is always in the Classified:Planner Kit, and I confess it’s the main reason I get that kit, haha!)
I fell in love with those translucent gold-trimmed leaves (also in the Pocket Memory Keeping Kit), and used them all almost immediately, on the dashboard above and on the front cover of the first insert:
This first insert holds my monthly calendar, weekly planning pages, financial spending tracker, and gratitude journal. Here is a peek at the first weekly layout – since October 1 is on a Thursday, I covered the whole left side with this pretty personal size dashboard from the Planner Dashboards subscription and added a sticker from the Memory Keeping Sticker Kit:
The second insert is for design team scheduling and planning and any other random things I decide to write down this month. Since I’m using a TN cover again, that means I can use some charm dangles at the bottom. These are both from Fir and Yew, and they add just a wee bit of sparkle and shine to my planner.
To get a peek at my whole planner, have a look at my setup video, below:
Thanks for hanging out with me today, and I can’t wait to see what you all have done with the Flannel and Frost kits! Join us in the Cocoa Daisy Fans Facebook group and show us your pretties! Until next time, happy October!
