DIY Planner 2014

DIY Planner

Happy New Year! I'm so excited for this year as I have set many crafty goals for myself.

One of those goals, include being organized with my life and craft room space. So, the first step to my organization plan  is to schedule my life and of course, write things down in my planner!

I guess this is my cheap version of a filofax planner. I like the filofax planner and it would be fun to get one, but at the same time, i change my mind about the look of things so often that shelling out $60 dollars for a planner that I may not like forever, sounds like too much for me. 

Instead, I bought this little binder at Target for $7 dollars. I'm way into gold and orange right now, so when i saw this,  I knew i wanted it to become my new planner! This size of binder fits the Avery refills so it was easy to just put some plain sheets with all the stuff i needed, and gave me the freedom to dress it up with pretty things! 

So, here are some pictures of my 2014 planner! Here's to hoping I use it more than last years planner! ;)

I embossed the cardboard projector on my eBosser using the 'Starburst' Folder by Teresa Collins. I used printed cards from We R Memory makers, Teresa Collins 'You are my Happy' collection, and topped it off with some Dear Lizzy 'Fifth and Frolic'stuff.

I used Dear Lizzy thickers to highlight the year & the tabs are stickers from Teresa Collins Collection, 'Daily Stories'

The gold trim is from Teresa Collins 'You are My Happy' Collection.

I had some plastic Avery dividers in my closet that fit the binder, and although they didn't match my planner, I still wanted to add them as I could use them to tape down mini photos and stickers. For extra flair, I embossed them as well with the eBosser!

For this page, I used my Dear Lizzy cutouts from her 'Fifth & Frolic' collection, and some adorable nerdy glasses sticker from You are My Happy collection by TC,

I like the old library card, and the glasses and sparkle from the scalloped trim.

Finally, I embossed the last page with Teresa Collins, 'Decor Circles'folder for the eBosser, and used more thickers, and chipboard pieces to accentuate the page.

I love my planner! And I like that I customized it for me! Is it perfect? Of course not! But then again, what is?

Happy New Years everyone!



  1. I love how your customized your planner! Gave me great ideas! Where did you find filler paper to fit that size binder? I had a difficult time so I bought a basic planner :(

    1. Maria,

      I got the Avery refills (basic) I went to Target and are usually next to the mini binders in the office supplies section.

      Hope this helps!


  2. Another great work Jazmine, as usual.:) You are so good at defining these colorful and innovative card artwork. I loved the way you promote on your posts. Cheers!....:)
