Hey ya’ll, hey! It’s Charisse Audra here and I am so excited to share with you how I add pretty planner deco, full/half boxes, and headers to my planner layout. I am a self-proclaimed “Pretty Functionista” planner; a pretty planner, who is also functional. The “Beary in Love” January VB Kit gives me all the pink feels and is just oozing with cuteness and love. My planning process is simple:
Step 1:Gather all items needed to plan. In this picture: (left to right) sticker book, notepad, washi tape, my planner (I am a personal rings girl!), mini sticker sheet, and my ring planner inserts. Check out my instagram, where all shops are tagged.
Step 2:I take my inserts out of my planner to make adding washi and stickers easier and everything goes on nice and straight. Just in case you happen to notice, I have slits in my inserts, where it’s hole punched. To make adding and removing my inserts easier (no need to keep opening and closing those rings, if you don’t have to, right?!?!), I take a small pair of scissors and make a slit right at the hole. Back to planning: I add my washi first, at the bottom only.
Step 3:Once the washi has been added, I then alternate between the full and half boxes, based on what I need to accomplish for the week. I am also using what I call “the week at a glance” sticker, so I can designate one goal/focus per day, for the week. Once I add the sticker to my planner, I either use a “Goals” or “Focus” sticker header. This week, I am using the “Goals” sticker headed. You can find these headers, along with all the others, inside the sticker book.
Step 4:Once I’ve added my full and half boxes, I then add headers on days, where needed; add deco, which just inspires me, and because this was VB Pen Release week, I added that deco sticker and one of the pen stickers, from the mini sticker sheet to my layout.
The completed layout, with my inserts back inside my planner.
Here’s a close-up of my completed layout. That foiling on the full and half boxes is so pretty. Thanks so much for reading about my planning process. See y’all next time!
