Make Your Own Planner

I am excited to announce my latest self-paced workshop. In this workshop you will make your own planner for 2010.

The workshop will provide you step-by-step instructions to complete the beautiful planner you see above – all at the comfort of your own home. You will also get a full planner kit I designed, in both JPG and PDF files for instant download. I will walk you through the process of putting the planner together, however you will have to handle all the “wow!” you’ll hear yourself.

The planner’s pages are elegant and appeal to any taste. The page templates include:

  • Monthly and weekly planner pages.
  • Shopping list.
  • To do list.
  • A page for information you wish to remember.
  • A page designed especially for sketching creative ideas you come up with throughout the day.

For only $10.95, less than a price of one designer planner, you will get a beautiful, meticulously designed planner kit. Not only that, but you may also use the kit to create planners for your friends, family and colleagues – a great handmade and affordable present for the coming holidays. You may also alter the JPG files, change their color, add or subtract elements and personalize it with a photo editing program.

What Else Will You Get?

The segments of the workshop are jam packed with tips and suggestions on how to harness your creativity for customizing the planner and make it uniquely yours. You will also find clear and concise step-by-step instructions, paired with large colorful pictures of each and every step – leaving all the guesswork out of the equation.

Immediately after registering to the workshop, you will gain access to the entire kit for instant download. You will also receive the first segment with an introduction and a complete tools and supply list. Note: all the tools and supplies are pretty basic and can be found at your local craft and office supply store. For your convenience, the list contains links to recommended online stores that sell these products.

The following three segments will be delivered to your inbox every day. Just enough time to allow you to complete the former segment without overwhelming you with all the information at once.

In a span of 4 days, you will get all the workshop material and complete your planner (depending on your preferred way to print out the planner kit).

As always I offer each member full support and encouragement.

P.S.: You are going to love this planner… OR your money back!

I am so confident you will absolutely love the planner you’ll make, that I am offering a full money back guarantee. If you are not fully satisfied with the workshop, just send me an e-mail and I will refund 100% of your purchase – no questions asked.

Creativity Prompt #31 – Make A Free Standing Calendar

2009 Calendar

The year 2008 is coming to an end. It is time to start planing the glorious 2009 which is right at the corner. Wouldn’t it be wonderful to start the year to come with a handmade calendar, to stand beside you as a reminder of how awesome you are all year long. If you are interested – keep on reading for a step-by-step instructions and a FREE 2009 Calendar download.


  • 2009 Calendar template (download by clicking on the link above).
  • Cardstock
  • Double Sided Tape
  • Loose leaf rings/ribbon (I prefer the rings, but I didn’t have any at home, so I used Paper Trey’s ribbon instead)


  • Paper trimmer
  • Bone folder
  • Ruler + craft knife + cutting mat

Step By Step Instructions –

  1. Print the calendar template (either on cardstock or a regular copy-paper). Cut down the individual months’ boxes with an 1/8″ margin from the dashed frame. Use the marks on your ruler for the alignment and cut with a craft knife.
    Aligning the ruler for cutting
    Work on each of the printed pages individually, as they are not perfectly aligned to each other.
  2. Cut your cardstock at 3½” by 12″.
    Cutting the cardstock for the calendar's stand
  3. Score your cardtock strip (widthwise) at: 3½”, 4½”, 5″, 7″, 7½”, 8½”. I used the paper trimmer and a bone folder for the scoring.
    Scoring the cardstock
  4. Fold all the score lines and burnish with the bone folder.
  5. Apply two strips of strong double sided tape to both ends of one of the 3½” flaps. It doesn’t matter which of them you choose to apply the tape to.
    Applying adhesive
  6. Align both 3½” flaps together and adhere them. That should form the calendar’s stand.
    Adhering the calendar's stand
  7. Group all the months’ boxes together and align them on the top flap of the calendar’s stand. Punch 2 holes right below the top edges of the dashed frame. (I was using a crop-a-dile).
    Punching the holes through the calendar's pages and stand
  8. Attach all the layers together with the loose-leaf rings or the ribbon and you are done!!!
