HOW I PERSONALIZE MY NEW FRANKLIN PLANNER - MERCEDES DOS SANTOS
Hello, hello Planner friends! I am beyond excited to share with you how I personalized my NEW Teresa Collins Franklin Planner. Is it too early to start prepping for 2021? I think not… so here we go!
I am using the GOLD binder, which I absolutely love! This binder is new to me, I have never used this type of system before however, I am super excited to make it my own.
This first thing I did was to add my name to it. I used sparkly script stickers just to add some pizazz. Then, I added a few Teresa Collins stickers to really make the title page POP!
I added a piece of the clear pink polka dot acetate paper cut down to size to create a dashboard. This is just another way to personalize your planner.
Now to the really fun stuff… this binder is loaded with tons of pockets and flaps to be able to add anything you want. I chose to make some paper clips using Teresa Collins Die Cut Ephemera & one of her Gold sparkly bow clips. I also used a journaling card from the Stationary Studio Paper Collection and lined the borders with washi tape.
Next, I used another piece of the acetate paper and wrapped some washi tape around it so that I have a few strips handy. I filled one of the pockets with Teresa Collins stickers and added a mini journaling notebook in the zipper pocket to have a place to jot down notes whenever needed. Oh, and let’s not forget the enamel pin I added the zipper just as a reminder to “Never Give Up”!
The final step was to add a dashboard to hold sticky notes for easy access. I did this by using a clear gold striped photo card and a couple of sticky notes pads. You just never know when you need a sticky note.
One last thing, no planner is complete without your favorite pen, I love using the Teresa Collins Journaling pens they write so smoothly and are just gorgeous! Ok, so now my planner is complete and ready to take on the new year.
Well, this was certainly tons of fun, I had a blast personalizing my Franklin Planner using all Teresa Collins products, it was so easy to do and the best part is everything coordinates so perfectly together.
I hope you take a moment to personalize your planner and make it your own. Let’s get ready for 2021!
