DIY Daily Planner Pages

Hello dear readers,

If you've been keeping up with my blog you know that I am all about planners right now.  It is my latest obsession and I'm loving it!

I got my new planner all set up the way I want it, and I have been good about using it daily.  One of the reasons why I wanted to get a planner is to stay organized and art journal at the same time.
The planner that I selected, Websters Pages Color Crush, didn't come with any daily pages in their 2015 kit so I found some on Pinterest to use.  Check out my Journal board for some cool free downloads!

I really wanted to use this daily page but my print head on my Kodak ESP 5250 printer went bad so I can't print anything with cyan right now.  Grrr!  I found this page at the Scattered Squirrel and she has every type of free printable planner page that you can think of!  Full size and half size monthly, weekly, and daily.  Boom!

Until I can get a new printhead for my printer I'm using this one that I found at Nest Vintage Modern
I love the "Today I will dominate" title.  Very cute and empowering.
As I mentioned I can't print anything blue so I just printed these in gray.

I wrote in a previous post that I have many fancy papers.  I found most of them at Tuesday Morning for prices so cheap they'll make you cry with joy!  (sorry about the dark photos - it was a cloudy day)

The ones I will be using for my daily pages are scrapbooking paper.  They are thicker than regular paper but thinner than card stock. 
For the months of May and June I decided to use the Songbird pack.

Here's the finished product.  
Printed on the white side with the fancy part of the page on the back.

I used washi tape to secure the holes, to prevent pages being torn out by accident.

Pretty :-)

They had a sheet of embellishments to cut out and use in your projects.  I put them in my plastic pocket.

Here is an example of what I've been doing with my daily pages.
On the left page you can see a photo that I pasted on, to show what I had written about on the front side of that page.  On the right side is the next journal entry and I pasted some embellishments on the other side of it to give a visual of that day...and so on.

Stay tuned for my next post - Polaroid ZIP PhotoPrinter.  Like the LG and Polaroid Pogo and Instax photo printers, but see why I like it more.

Thank you for reading!
