Happy New Year

I had intended to post a bit more this month - at least I managed to get one last post in before the new year.
I wanted to buy a planner for the new year - i am definitely a "list" person and do manage to keep on top on more things by creating loads of lists and I already have a small A6 Filofax ready for work/home . I wanted a bigger Planner and spent ages doing my research. My fav is This one:

Isn't it BEAUTIFUL?!  I have lusted over this for a little while - and all the accessories that go along with it. The planner alone i found (cheapest) £62 .
With the washing machine dying and Derek's car in the garage, I had to re think.

I have ended up upcyling an old black leather A5 Filofax - I may decorate the binder at some point. 
I taught myself how to create the daily inserts in Word - i even watermarked the pages with some of my old art work.
I created the title pages with card and Bo Bunny/Graphic 45 papers that i have horded - feels good to actually use them.
 The cover needs sorting .

 Some of my pens and January's title page.

 I plan to use the same style for each month ( and use up some scraps too)

 These are cut from the Bo Bunny calender sheets( I have had them for a while).

 I made a marker to keep my place.

The watermark on this page is from the Internet but i intend to use my own images for the rest of the year. I have made a different style for each month. The back of the page is plain so I can add either artwork or photos.

That's it for now.
Happy New Year 

Love Soojay


  1. The planner you wanted is lovely but I do think your old one is absolutely perfect now that you've added your own personal touches. Happy New Year . xx
