Here they are, the two siblings side by side. The A5 Malden will serve as my desk planner at home, and the Personal Finsbury will be my wallet.
I decided to make the Malden as a bit of a catch-all in terms of decorating it. The Finsbury will be my vintage planner. I will turn the Malden back into a vintage planner next year when I get 2016 inserts. Since this is my desktop planner, I was not too concerned about too much bulk. I added some Project Life cards which I staggered to add interest, a Kawaii post-it note and washi tapes. I altered a couple of large paperclips from Target to serve as my pageholders. I also tucked in a Heidi Swapp sticker in one of the pockets. The charm was made using a Tim Holtz swivel clasp. My friend Laurie sent me the danglers as a RAK. I will take a separate picture of that at a different post. I personalized the PTI laminated cover by adding more Heidi Swapp stickers to it and I closed up the open spine with a skinny washi tape from JoAnn's.
This planner has a lot of dashboards. I decorated the first one with Heidi Swapp stickers.
The bowtie sticker, gold polka dot washi tape and the gold shimmer trim are from Close To My Heart. The vellum is from Heidi Swapp and the eyeglasses washi tape is from JoAnn's.
I wanted a lot of color on my February dashboard. The pink background paper is Brushed, from Close To My Heart. I added another Project Life card on top of it and a sticker from K&Co as the month's sentiment. The quote page is embellished with stickers from the Dollar Spot at Target and Heidi Swapp.
I went with vintage Pooh for the month of February. The washi tape are from JoAnn's and the arrows and heart stickers are from Close To My Heart.
So there it goes...I think I learned my lesson not to buy a planner when the year had already started. lol! Who knows, I might do the same thing again next year. The next post will be all about my March set-up for my Malden. Do watch out for it!
