September is here and that means a new month inside our planners! Today, our Creative Team shares their planner setups featuring the Daisy Fields Collection!
Jennifer Crowder: Standard Daisy Dori Setup
Hello, September! I am ready for you! If you use a traveler’s notebook, you might know this feeling I’m trying to describe; you know, when those perfect little spots in your planner make you so happy? It’s the little things in life! The Daisy Fields Collection already gives me that fall feel-good mood, but the way my September setup came together just makes me smile and feel at home.
That feeling starts for me as soon as I open up my planner. This month’s front pocket configuration is functional perfection! I love that the Daisy Fields Planner Kit has been coming with a decorative acetate piece you can layer with the functional sticky notes. This month’s sticky note features a space for meal planning. I also love the little sticky flags; just grab and go.
I was so excited to see the mini tabs make a return in the Daisy Fields Planner Add-On Kit again this month! I raved about them last month so obviously, I had to put them to use again this month. I created 3 little tabbed cards. You can see the reverse side in my youtube video above.
Let’s get down to it; THE PLANNING! I love vertical planning and the Daisy Dori (pick your favorite size, we offer several!) makes for an easy 2-day per page setup.
.Renee Senchyna: Memory Planner Monthly Setup
Where did the summer go? It is hard to believe that summer has come and gone and fall is just around the corner. As much as I hate to say goodbye to the warm summer weather I am looking forward to the beautiful colors of fall. I love the muted fall colors of the new Daisy Fields Collection. The warm yellows, greens, and oranges are the perfect color palette to welcome in September.
This month I decided to use my Daisy Fields Collection packs to decorate the monthly view of my Heidi Swapp undated planner. Starting with the Daisy Fields Planner Add-On Kit, I used the small number circles to add the dates of the month, then the days of the week along the top.
Once that was done I included paydays, the first day of fall, and Cocoa Daisy reveal day using stickers. I also used the letter stickers from the Daisy Fields Planner Add-On Kit to add my birthday. I used the stamp kit from the Daisy Fields Travelers Notebook Memory Keeping Kit to stamp “September” in the top left corner of the page. The ‘Hello Fall’ sticker underneath came from the Daisy Fields Memory Keeping Sticker Kit. I used the large yellow chipboard letter stickers from the Daisy Fields Classified: Memory Keeping Kit to add “September” down the right side of the page.
Once I had the basics down I used the chipboard stickers to add some fun to the page. Once I had all of the stickers down I transferred the ‘Autumn’ definition rub-on from the Daisy Fields Travelers Notebook Memory Keeping Kit to the bottom of the right page, then used the Daisy Fields Travelers Notebook Memory Keeping Kit stamp to add “Hello Fall” underneath. I also stamped the dotted lines behind each of the bees on the page. As you can see, this stamp is going to be a favourite of mine; I love how it adds a bit of motion to the page!
The tag from the Daisy Fields Classified: Memory Keeping Kit was a bit too big for the space on the left side of the planner, so I trimmed down each of the sides, then used my hole punch to create a new hole at the top of the tag. I looped my string thru the hole before adhering the tag to the page and adding the stickers on top.
Ashley Horton: Monthly Planning for “All the Things”
I love having two planners: one for appointments, assignments, and “all the things” and one for memory planning. For September, I plan to use the Daisy Fields Collection in both formats this month! I wanted to go ahead and get my monthly planner set up, which I recently moved to from the weekly format. It makes it a lot easier for me to keep up with everything when I can see it all in one view.
I can’t ever stick to one kit, so I mixed the Daisy Fields Modern Memory Keeping Kit, Daisy Fields Travelers Notebook Memory Keeping Kit, and Daisy Fields Memory Keeping Sticker Kit for my September spread. I always love having the stamp set in the Travelers Notebook Memory Keeping Kit that includes the month. It’s so versatile for all of your projects! Usually, I start my monthly spread with my dates. I like to get them all in place and go from there. My planner starts on Monday, but I like for it to start on Sunday. So, I used one of the journaling cards from the Daisy Fields Modern Memory Keeping Kit and cut it apart to create strips to cover the months at the top of the page.
I restamped the days of the week with the Functional Stamp Set and also used this same stamp set to add my numbers. I did most of my embellishing around the outer edges of the planner, with some of the die cuts, rub-ons, and washi tape. This way, I can add in all of the information I need to and I can always go back later and fill in with some more embellishments if I have room.
