VB Close Up: Monthly Planning with Page Flags

Hi Villapeeps!

Today I will be showing you what I love to do with my VB page flags. We have been so lucky to have gotten these in the VBKits since May. I love them so much and I'll show you how you can use them in your monthly spreads.

I currently use the Monthly Inserts from Cloth and Paper. This is an easy way to keep track of all my kids' activities throughout the month.

*I will be showing you how I used the October VBKit page flags but for privacy reasons, I will show you the finished result from October.

So when using the page flags, I have a couple favorite pens to use. One is the Microperm pen - I tried to use the Unipin but Microperm dries faster.

Here I will also be using my VBPen, washi from the October Cafe Papershire VBKit, and of course the page flags. 
I use the washi to block out any days that aren't part of the month I am working on. It's just a cute way to use the washi and incorporate it into the spread.

Then I have written down any huge reminders for the upcoming month and listed them on the left. I like this way of planning for the month so I can move and reposition any flags of activities that cancel or are rescheduled. Once all of your dates/events are written on your page flags, simply put them onto the correct date! They can then be transferred as needed to different days or to the next monthly layout.

I also like colors on my calendars. I can easily color code for doctor appts, birthdays, meetings, phone calls, etc by using the various colors available in the page flag sets. 
I use the skinny washi to mark an ongoing task by placing it downward, as it was a task that happened every Friday. 
I also used the clear decorative cards from the kit in a credit card holder. I placed it in between the 2 monthly sheets so I can mark where I am in the calendar year. 
Thank you for joining me for this month's plan with me as I schedule in my month's activities, food prep, and appts. It's simple but gives so much functionality and color to my schedules.
