Kill a collection – 1. Planner decor

This post is also available in: Russian

Hi there!

I’m participating in a project organized by my dear friend AnnaKill a Collection. I think that the name is self-explanatory. There are 5 stages, in each a project that utilizes one fifth of the collection should be made. Frankly I wanted a lot to take part in it, but was scared that won’t be able to complete it. As to kill one fifth of a collection at a time is a bigger project then a card I usually create. On the other hand.. The chance to finally put in use at least something from my paper stash really appealed to me. So I decided to risk. The collection I’m killing – True Friend from Fancy Pants.

And today I’m showing the results of the first stage and the project for which I chose – my planner decor. As this collection colors speaks fall – so this decor will be seasonal (which means one day I’ll need to create other seasons decor).

The decor includes 7 dividers (one of which is technically a dashboard). Here I made photos of them when finished working with paper. And then I laminated everything. As I know that everything not laminated would be damaged in my planner. Which I always have with me, including everyday tough 3 hours commute.

Felt bows clips in colors that match the collection, a couple clips and a magnetic clip using laminated ephemera pack die-cuts Seasonal fall planner decor by @s_shayevich. #planner #plannerdecorAnd now showing everything in the planner. Which looks like this with all decor in itSeasonal fall planner decor by @s_shayevich. #planner #plannerdecor Seasonal fall planner decor by @s_shayevich. #planner #plannerdecorFirst of all – envelopes from the collection. They’re so incredibly cool that I cannot use them anywhere. Like adhere to a layout or in a notebook. Too cool to waste them like this. And having them in a planner is like ideal way to use them. I can use them as envelopes (store stickers inside) and they decorate my planner. Plus – they stay “safe” still being a separate element.

It serves as an inbox for something that cannot be sticked to the dashboard.Seasonal fall planner decor by @s_shayevich. #planner #plannerdecorWhich is the next element of the decor. All dividers/dashboard I decorated at the front. At the back just patterned paper from the same collection.

This clip holds all pages between the current month and current week. Usually  I have my planner opened on the current day page (or if it’s closed and I’m opening it – most of the times I go to this page). Month layout I visit not so often, so there is no need to have a separate bookmark here. This clip works like a charm.Seasonal fall planner decor by @s_shayevich. #planner #plannerdecorOn the day on a page layout I made a bookmark from a PL card. It’s two-sided. Word NOW made with stickers on one side  Seasonal fall planner decor by @s_shayevich. #planner #plannerdecorand just a motivational card on the other. I cut slits in it so it can be easily moved between layouts. Seasonal fall planner decor by @s_shayevich. #planner #plannerdecorCraft section, where I plan everything craft related. Here I have the list of upcoming projects, dead-lines, ideas. There are project pages where I plan (if need) bigger projects (like this planner decor :)). I have a lot of tags which needed to use, so found the way to use them like this. Also, as everything is laminated, I can use them in future to make some Sharpie notes.Seasonal fall planner decor by @s_shayevich. #planner #plannerdecorAnd online – is for my online content planning. Editorial planner and calendar, stats, blog and IG posts ideas .. you name it! Seasonal fall planner decor by @s_shayevich. #planner #plannerdecorThat is how the magnetic squirrel looks in action
Seasonal fall planner decor by @s_shayevich. #planner #plannerdecorThis section is pretty big, so I made several dividers for it. Like posts planning (this bookmark is made from a 4×6 PL card, folded up, the title is made with alphabet stickers). This is a journaling card so it has these lines, which I use to make some posts related notes with my Sharpie.Seasonal fall planner decor by @s_shayevich. #planner #plannerdecor Seasonal fall planner decor by @s_shayevich. #planner #plannerdecorDesign related inserts. I like how sizes of PL cards make them perfect dividers for personal size planner Seasonal fall planner decor by @s_shayevich. #planner #plannerdecorNext goes health. Which I should have named – attempts to burn this fat lol. Anywho, here I track what I eat, workouts and weight situation.Seasonal fall planner decor by @s_shayevich. #planner #plannerdecorShopping. Do you plan your shopping? I’m sure you do! Me too. First – I’m trying to eliminate my expenses. “Not spend October” kind of thing is not what I’m ready for. But at least try to spend less is my goal. So I made up a spending limit and list everything I buy, trying to stay within this limit (of course I don’t speak shelter, bills and food here). When I see everything I buy listed (and see HOW MUCH I already spent – it really motivates lol)Seasonal fall planner decor by @s_shayevich. #planner #plannerdecorAlso here I list everything I need to buy, so isn’t get lost in a store or in a site. This also helps not to buy something that I don’t need (especially when need to make free shipping) and not to forget something that I don’t need like RIGHT NOW (so it isn’t the thing I make a purchase for), but what I need to buy one day.Seasonal fall planner decor by @s_shayevich. #planner #plannerdecorNext two sections are directorySeasonal fall planner decor by @s_shayevich. #planner #plannerdecorand data

Next goes a section with no name. Here is something either temporary or misc, so things that cannot make a category, but I have them in my planner.
Dividers for those are just PL cards, beautiful enough so there is no need to decorate them.

So here it is – my fall planner decor. And what is more important – the first stage of Kill a Collection project.
Hopefully I’ll be able to finish other stages as well.
Do you decorate your planners? If so – do you like to have seasonal decor?
