Planner Setup is a Snap with Cocoa Daisy

Hello, friends!

March is almost here and we are looking forward to a new month and, yes, a fresh look inside our planner! Today, we will look back at a February setup and get some inspiration for the new month, too!

Jennifer utilized some fun exclusive products from the Elegance Blooms Collection and gives us some handy tips for the monthly switch up in our planners. 

The die cuts are one of my favorite Cocoa Daisy products. I love to add them to my planner! I usually keep them in an acrylic tray on my desk (so pretty!) but love this new on the go option from the Elegance Blooms Traveler’s Notebook Memory Keeping Kit; a little plastic sleeve that is not only 💯 adorable but also makes setting up my planner pages on the go even easier. Plus, the die cuts have adhesive backs already, so you just pull and stick. No extra adhesive or glue is needed!


Setting up my journaling Bible for a month of studies is also easy-peasy with the Elegance Blooms Bible Journaling Sticker Kit. I love adding some decor to the pages in advance and leaving room for notes and reflection later.

Do you have a notebook that needs to go with you for multiple months and do you want an easy way to change your deco out to match your newest Cocoa Daisy kit? Check out this tutorial here!


Cheryl shares her beautiful personal planner setup for March.

Personal rings are the perfect size for me – plenty of space for appointments and to-do lists but not too large for carrying with me. I love the format of the Cocoa Daisy Personal Size Inserts. You can see the whole week on a two-page spread and there are extra places for notes, journaling, and to-dos!

I also used the Cactus Moon Planner Dashboard Kit to make gorgeous dashboards for each section of my setup. It’s one of my favorite parts of designing my planner each month. There are plenty of embellishments and washi tapes to use! I love making a ruffle by folding a strip of washi back and forth and tucking it under a 3×4 pocket card from the Cactus Moon Planner Add-On Kit. The Cactus Moon Planner Kit included these stunning glitter edgers that I attached to the side of a few of my dashboards. It makes them so pretty as I turn the pages and you can see them peeking out on the side of the planner!

The colorful week on one-page inserts from the Cactus Moon Personal Size Inserts is a favorite of mine to use as a way to write one thing I am grateful for each day. I use the little date stickers from the Cactus Moon Planner Add-On Kit on the left-hand side to keep track of the dates.

The week is very easy to plan out by layering decorative stickers, the decorative weekday stickers, and date stickers. I also love to use alpha stickers like these from the Cactus Moon Planner Add-On Kit to write out an important event or someone’s name if it is their birthday.

This month there is a pretty adhesive pocket from the Cactus Moon Planner Classified Kit that I used on a dashboard as a place to hold extra stickers (for future planning). The puffy alphabets were perfect to write out “stickers.” I then placed a few of the small sticky notes from the Cactus Moon Modern Memory Keeping Kit on the front for extra notes.

On one of the note pages, I added tracker stickers from the Cactus Moon Planner Sticker Kit for meal planning, a hydration tracker, and a health tracker for tracking headaches. See the full setup in this quick flip-through of my planner on Instragam.
