It is so easy to personalize your planner pages using the Cocoa Daisy Kits. Whether you are simply embellishing an established planner layout or starting from scratch, the Cocoa Daisy Kits have everything you need to make your planner work for you. Keep reading to see how the Creative Team personalizes their pages with Cocoa Daisy items.
Pauline plans with a style that is between bullet journal and planner and uses her Cocoa Daisy items to make it happen.
“I do my very own pages because I never find the “perfect fit”. For a year and a half, I found a planning style that fits me. I do a page for my weekly to-do list and appointments + my meal planning system. Then for all days I use a half-page for each day, except during weekends. Consequently, I have 4 pages per week. For the “weekly page”, I used as background a page from the free printables. I also use pages from the A5 pages that are in the planner kit. For daily planning, I use simple dotted pages.
As I said, I used a page from the Winter Twilight Printables as a background for my meal planning page. I also used some washi tapes as the page was a bit too small. Then, I just added a sticker from the Winter Twilight Planner Sticker Kit to mark my section.
This is a close-up of the last part of the week. Each day is organized the same way: I used some stickers, dashboards free printables from the Winter Twilight Collection to decorate. For this week, I chose the “animal of the forest” theme. I love to make some layering. It also supports the day’s name and number with stickers from Winter Twilight Classified: Planner Kit and Winter Twilight Planner Add On Kit. Stickers boxes from the Planner Kit are for important tasks during the day. Boxes that I make with a stencil are for writing the highlights of the day. And in the other spaces, I just write the tasks I need to do each day. I really use my planner each day, and it can be overloaded at the end of the day.
Here is a look at a typical day before the pen, with all sections I mentioned before. You can see all my planner pages of the month in my setup video”
Jill used the Confetti Wishes Collection to create my monthly spread in my bullet journal for 2022.
“I fell in love with all the cheerful colors and the black and white that helps them pop. I labeled the spread January 2022 with the cute alphabet stickers in the Confetti Wishes Memory Keeping Sticker Kit. Also from that kit is the starburst label, the Hello January sticker, which I placed in the middle of my two-page spread, and the clear sentiment and snail sticker in the bottom left corner of my spread.
The rub-ons in Confetti Wishes Travelers Notebook Memory Keeping Kit are the best! I used them in several places on both pages. My organization for these monthly set-ups is a monthly calendar to record appointments, meetings, and special events; a shortlist of the most important goals for the month; and this year I’m adding a highlights list, so the “this moment captured” stamp from the Confetti Wishes Memory Keeping Stamp Sets and the “documented” rub-on were the perfect header for this section.
I used the stamps from the kits several times: for bullet points (small hearts and stars for the win!), for my goals list, and for part of the heading for this section “of note’. The grid washi tape is so basic and looks especially great on a grid paper background. Finally, I added two of the birds toward the top of each page as well as that cheeky snail at the bottom left to create a visual triangle around the spread. I love the Confetti Wishes Collection for my bullet journal!”
What started as two, lined, pieces of paper turned into a beautiful weekly spread, thanks to the Confetti Wishes Collection!
I love playing around with different weekly layouts and the Cocoa Daisy kits, particularly the Confetti Wishes Planner Add-On Kit is the perfect tool to help me do that. For this spread, I was started with the calendar stickers from this kit to put my spread together. If you are creating your planner spreads each week, you will have no trouble doing with the stickers from this kit.
With the foundation complete, I used stickers from the Confetti Wishes Memory Keeping Sticker Kit and the Confetti Wishes Classic Sticker Kit to include my schedule for the week. I use this section of my planner for social media and creative content planning, so I only include those items on this weekly spread. I love using the small label stickers to block off the time each day I focus on certain tasks. With no tasks and projects on Saturday and Sunday, I was able to use the fun weekend banner across both days. Where there is open space, I like to add a little embellishment like the box in the top left corner.
I also love to use stamps to build the base of my planner pages. For the right page, I used several stamps from the Confetti Wishes Memory Keeping Stamp Sets to create task lists and places for reminders. I employed a masking technique with washi tape to get the stamps exactly how I wanted them.
Just like the top left corner, I filled the bottom right corner with an embellishment cluster of stickers, die-cuts, and rub-ons from the Confetti Wishes Travelers Notebook Memory Keeping Kit.
