{washi tape blog planner}


A few weeks ago, I discovered Beckie's free blog planner printables over at Infarrantly Creative. I did a little happy dance in my desk chair because I've been looking for a blog planner and it is so hard to find one that fits how a blogger thinks {or at least how I think...;)}

So using Beckie's printables and some fun scrapbooking supplies, here is what I came up with!

So fun, right? It makes planning my blog so much more exciting and I'm actually staying more organized because of it.

So how did I put it together?

I printed off the weekly planning pages...

...which have the perfect places to plan my posts/projects, and jot down to do lists and stats.

And the monthly calendar pages...

Then I bound them together using the handy binding machine we have at my office.

For the cover, I used a piece of woodgrain scrapbook paper, and for the back I used a simple manila file folder cut down to size. Then I gathered some supplies from my scrapbooking stash...


The hubby took the boys out for a few hours {heaven!}, so I fixed myself an iced coffee and got to decorating...


This washi tape is so cute, right?! It is from the K&Co Smash line and I found it at our local Joann store. I used it to outline the edges of the font and back covers, and to attach a cute "M" on the front.



Then on the inside, I attached a pocket {another Smash product} to hold a pen, stickers, and any other random items I might need a place for...


And then I got to work filling out my first weekly page!


Thanks so much to Beckie for offering this free printable...it is exactly what I needed to keep my blog organized and growing!
