Introducing … The Pretty Pretty 2015 Planner

As I become more involved in online planner groups on Facebook and Instagram, I’ve also become more inspired to try and find the perfect weekly planner layout. I was drawn to the whole planner ecosystems around the Erin Condren and Plum Paper planners. I like the weekly layouts, divided into day segments and with otherwise open boxes for people to write their own appts, reminders, etc. And who knew there are whole planner stickers and accessories designed to fit the boxes in these planners? Crazy, right?! But as I browsed through the planner sections of Etsy, I so wanted to try them! But … I like my discbound notebooks – the planners I linked to above are an unconventional size: too big for the traditional ‘Junior’ or 8.5 x 5.5″ sizes, and too small for Letter-sized notebooks. And they are THICK spiral-bound planners! While I’d seen pics from those who have cut off the spiral binding and punched them with Levenger punches, they’d still require some pretty big discs to carry the whole thing, which I don’t like to use as a general rule, 1″ is as big as I will go (and that took awhile!). But after browsing Etsy and comparing alternatives, there didn’t seem to be any substitute planner printables that I could find that had a similar feel.

So I made one.
I call it the Pretty Pretty 2015 Planner. Because it is pretty. Best of all, it’s free for download!
Just go here.

    omg. Finally. Been looking for Erin condren style. Love the big box style. Please make it again next year. Wish I had the time to make my own. But it’s awesome. Thank you so much!

      I’m so glad you took the time to post that Angela! I’ve really had no feedback on the big box version, so may not have put it in my must-do list for next year otherwise. At least I’m not the only one enjoying it. ๐Ÿ™‚

        Oh I love the big boxes. I write big. Honestly makes me want to go to staples to buy the bigger arc book. So I can use it to its full potential! You did an amazing job! I’m booking marking your site and I can keep up with you! And hope you repeat it again for next year!

        Thanks so much! I will definitely make it a focus next year now. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Love your planner! I feel the same about the thick spiral-bound planners and have been looking for a new type of planner. With your printables, what cover & back disc system do you recommend? I’d love to be able to switch the cover periodically too.
    Thank you!

      Hi Julie!! If you want to use my printables with a discbound system, I’d suggest getting a notebook (either a Levenger Circa or Staples Arc), because then you’ll get a nice plastic (or leather depending on what you pick) cover, discs, and some refill paper. If you pick a notebook with a clear plastic cover, you can change the paper underneath to give your planner a different look as often as you like.

    your printables are soooooo amazing. Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful creations. You’re very talented. ๐Ÿ™‚
