How to Create the Most Dazzling Scrapbook Planner

To start 2017 off on an organized foot, I have been getting my planner set up. I love using a binder-style planner because I can use it as more of a scrapbook for the year. Because I don’t have the time to sit and scrapbook like I use to, I decided in 2016 to turn my planner into a scrapbook by adding pictures and fun mementos to the pages. It turned out beautifully, so I am keeping with this tradition and creating a scrapbook planner for 2017.

For this project, I share how to make a cover page, a decorative element, and a page divider.

Skill: Intermediate
Time: 1 hour

Directions for the Cover Page

Delicata, Memento, VersaMagic ink used to make a cover.

• Cut 1 piece of cardstock to 8.5 inches long by 6 inches across.
• Using a piece of white cardstock, write planner information using Memento markers.
• Mount white cardstock to another colored piece of cardstock.
• Attach both pieces of paper together using the Xyron Creative Station Lite.
• Hole punch cardstock to fit into the binder.
• Place in the binder.

Tips for setting up the planner

Now that all these creative elements are finished; find a monthly, weekly or daily calendar printable online and print as many pages as needed. As planning unfolds, add pages to the binder as well as stickers, embellishments, pictures and other elements to decorate. The scrapbook style planner is a perfect way to satisfy the need to stay organized as well as the need to document the fun adventures throughout the year.
