UPDATE on May 23rd Date

Hi all. I posted a couple of weeks ago about missing May 23rd in certain Junior size PDF downloads. After getting a couple of reports that the downloads still were missing a date, I checked every Junior size PDF I have for 2019. They all have May 23rd, in all formats. I’ve also deleted from the Mediafire upload folder, and reuploaded these correct PDFs again, just to make completely sure. If any users are still downloading a PDF with missing May 23rd date, all I can suggest is to please clean your web browser history and cache in case the old files are somehow saved in your browser settings, cleaning this history should force it to download the newer file. Other than that, I’m at a loss as to what else to suggest. Email me using the contact form on the About Me page, and I can email the newest PDF to you directly.

Did you know?

Did you know……that the Pretty Pretty Planner is made with sticker users in mind? Back in 2015 when I designed the PPP I wanted Erin Condren/Happy Planner sticker fans to be able to use their sticker stashes on my printable too (even if I didn’t use any stickers myself at the time). So I made the columns just over 1.5″ wide. I even made a “Big Boxes” version (shown here, on top of the “Classic” PPP with shorter sections) of the Pretty Pretty Planner just to make room for larger stickers each day. I found these adorable Sweet Kawaii Design stickers at Michaels recently, and they fit PERFECTLY in my Junior size (half letter size) Pretty Pretty Planner weekly columns. And look how cute they look with the PPP colors! 😍

PPP Fan Additions: Alison Innes

Hi everyone! I have been approached a couple of times about Pretty Pretty Planner (PPP) users who created a complementary or add-in sheet to use along with the official inserts from my blog, and wanted to know if I would like to share it with my followers.

Given the issues I have had with stealing of my planners in the past, initially I wasn’t sure how to feel about these requests. After all, my original intention was to make the Pretty Pretty Planner free and as customizable as possible, to suit everybody and anybody’s needs (which is why I used to offer the modifiable Word documents as well as PDFs). But at the same time, while I am all for sharing and promoting the Pretty Pretty Planner, I wasn’t sure how comfortable I would be with people potentially saying their creations were “part” of the Pretty Pretty Planner system.

But I gave it some thought, and I think that as long as these Pretty Pretty Planner friends provide proper source credit and linkage back to this blog AND use it for personal use only, then I’m all for sharing some of these fun complementary additions with everyone. I think the key to my comfort is that it is truly an add-on/complement and not a REPLACEMENT – as in, not an alternate version of the “official” monthly or weekly planner system, which I would have more reservations about approving.

In a great example of this, I was contacted recently by Alison Innes, a Pretty Pretty Planner user who just needed a couple of extra add-ins giving her more room for daily notes to make her PPP system perfect. She wanted her creations to match the regular monthly/weekly planner pages (which I TOTALLY understand), and communicated with me to see if I’d mind if she shared them as “PPP additions”. Which first of all, I LOVE that she cared enough to ask how I felt first. Thanks Alison!! And secondly I really approve of how she phrased the linkage back in her post ‘Getting Organized, 2019 Style‘ – it’s a perfect model of how to provide this linkage/credit as well as providing her own download terms. Her add-in sheets complement the PPP and are even in the same colors!! A sample of her “ppp-day-a-page-letter” notes pages that have all the PPP colors to match the monthly/weekly planner pages:

Please check out her blog post for more info.

I love this idea of shared Pretty Pretty Planner fan-created “additions”, and eventually may create a whole new section of this blog to showcase them. If anybody else has anything similar they’d be interested in sharing, please feel free to contact me!

New Letter Version: HORIZONTAL!!!

At long last, a horizontal planner in letter size! Monday start only. I’m pleased with how this turned out, hope you guys like it too. As always, let me know if you spot any errors or missing dates!

Pretty Pretty Planner Color Codes

Some of you creative Pretty Pretty Planner users have requested the color codes to make matching stickers or whatnot – so at long last, here you go! Hex codes thanks to this handy website I found, and RGB codes on hover/click. This has been the Pretty Pretty Planner’s color palette since it was first released back in 2015. ♥

 

New Letter Version: Empty Columns

New today is a Pretty Pretty Planner version in letter size with empty columns – no boxes or timeslots or checklists! You can use stickers to decorate and add your own scheduling, or draw in your own lines (or use washi tape), and create sections for kids, projects, classes, whatever. Sunday start only right now, this version for some strange reason really gave my Microsoft Word some conniption fits. You can find the download link at the bottom of the list on the Letter size planner page. Let me know if you like it!
