I just got my gorgeous coral-colored Carpe Diem A5 planner a few days ago, and I just love it. Nope, this is not a sponsored post - I just really love it. It's my first ring planner and even though I got it to use for next year, I couldn't wait and started transferring the rest of my hacked Michaels Recollection Schedule notebook by cutting it down, and while it's not much of a perfect fit, I can live with it for the rest of the year. I love that there's so much room for personalization - and now I'm left wondering why the heck have I not jumped into the planning world earlier.
In aiming to be more organized (not just for myself but for my husband as well), I started making lists and inserts - and here's the first of probably a few that I'll be sharing with you - a printable gift list insert for your A5 sized planners. Don't fret, non-planner folks! You aren't left out - I also included a free printable for a letter-sized gift list so you can utilize it as well. It has 20 lines you can use - if you need more, just print additional pages.
Making your own insert is not as hard as it sounds! Just cut the page down, and use a pre-punched page as a guide to make your holes. I have yet to purchase a special 6-hole punch so I use a single-hole punch and it's really easy. I printed mine on regular cardstock paper (I like this one from Amazon) so it's heavier than my normal pages.
I have not gotten into accessorizing my planner very much - I'm trying to take it easy before the obsession with it hits me hard. Have you delved into the planning frenzy? Happy crafting, friends!
