May 2021 – ‘Tranquility’ Planner Set Up

Hi lovely people!

It’s Rachel here, and for May 2021, I’m trying something completely different…DISCS!

I decided to use the unpunched personal pages from the Main Planner Kit to make one disc bound planner for May, which I will use for both weekly/ daily planning AND journaling too.

I was a little concerned about the covers becoming bent, so I laminated them after I’d first punched them – they feel really solid and sturdy now.

I love using pocket cards in my planner and journal, and so I wanted to continue with this for May too. Here’s one of my favourites – that quote is just spot on!

There isn’t a lot of planning real estate on the personal size monthly view – so to save rewriting recurring events I used another pocket card to record what’s happening every day of the week.

I love the combination of pretty and functional!

Of course Simon had to be featured in my planner – I washi taped his clip to the back of my planner to make sure he’s not going anywhere. How cute does that look??

I use the blank notes pages in between the weekly views to write my to do lists, track habits and more. I love layering different elements to make the page really visually appealing.

Finally, I put all the daily pages together at the back. I punched the acetate washi card from the Main Planner Kit to make into a page marker, and it fits some sticky notes on perfectly too.


Thanks for reading – I hope you have a lovely May, and if you’re trying something new, why not share it over on the Cocoa Daisy Fan Page on Facebook?
