This week's set up & a walk through of my EC Life Planner in my Filofax

Here's what this week's spread looks like.  I used green, purple and a soft yellow this week and created a bird on a wire type theme.



I've seen a lot of people use washi to label the weekend, so I decided to create a bracket label to fit at the top and the bottom of my weekend instead.




I made this little bird clip for the week.



And as a first this week I made my own magnet page marker.  The idea came to me because I wanted another bird somewhere on the spread but I didn't want it permanent and I didn't want to stick a paperclip on the side and it stick out.  So I picked up a package of craft magnets from Hobby Lobby, they were I think a $1 or $2, and they have adhesive on one side.  I made the bird using my cameo, I created the background shape (the yellow) copied a mirrored image and then welded it together at the tail feather. Then I cut the top section (the purple) I wish I would have duplicated the top portion so you could see it from both sides so I think on next week's I'll do that.



Also this week I made more mini bunting banners, I used another old school punch and just cut them to look like banners.



Last week when I shared last week's spread...



I had several requests for my hydrate and a habit stickers so I created two free files you can download.  The first is a the hydrate by itself in png format.


This can be used just like a jpeg you can insert it into a word document the same way.  There is just no background, it's just the image.  You can get that {HERE}. [PERSONAL USE ONLY, DO NOT DISTRIBUTE OR SELL]

Now for the Hydrate/Habit sticker, I don't think everyone is going to use just my same habits so I created a single square that has the hydrate part and blank sections so you can add your own habit.


I did include the M-S circles so you won't have to worry about that part.  Just insert the jpeg into word and then add a text box on top.  Type what ever you want, just make sure you right click on the text box and check no lines, that way it will look like the words belong on the jpeg.  You can find it {HERE}.  [PERSONAL USE ONLY, DO NOT DISTRIBUTE OR SELL]

Below you will find a walk through video of my initial setup of my Erin Condren Life Planner that I trimmed down and punched to fit in my A5 Filofax Finsbury.

My new weekly list stickers....

I created these the other day and I am really loving how they turned out.  I use them on the weekly spread to cover up the weekly goals and notes.  I wanted a little more structure and fun. lol


I've had several requests to share these, so I decided to do that here on my blog.....you can download this word document {HERE}

Fitness Tab in my Erin Condren Life Planner - Free Download & A Video Explanation

Today I'm sharing how I track my food intake and my exercise in my EC Life Planner.  This is just an easy way for me to keep up with what I eat, log some goals, do weigh ins or measurements and then also track the exercises I do as well as the calories I burn and then a place I can recap on the week and my progress.


Here's a video on my YouTube channel that will give you a quick overview of my planner and an in-depth look at how I use and incorporate this insert.



I wanted something that I could easily add to my planner, but not add too much bulk and it not be on a weekly spread, so I came up with design insert.  I designed it as 8.5x11 so that I could fold it and put it in my Fitness Tab section.  I was going to use post-its and clip it in but then decided I didn't want to go through the trouble so I added a 6x8 page protector so I could easily slip the current week's tracker in there.  If you're interested and want to use this, feel free to download it {HERE}
