Pretty Pretty Planner CORRECTED versions coming.

Hi everyone. I’m sorry to say, I have identified date issues in the monthly calendars for February, August and October in all (UGH) the Junior size planners. Also, the Junior Horizontal version seems to be missing the monthly calendar for July completely. My apologies, I’m working on fixing and re-releasing these as soon as I can. I have a massive cold, so it might be tomorrow as I’m having trouble braining today.

Sorry for the inconvenience – that’s the downside of massive copy pasting when it comes to all these versions – one mistake gets transferred into EVERYTHING. Sigh.

Mini Happy Planner Proof of Concept

I think I finally have a reasonable template for a Mini Happy Planner sized version of the Pretty Pretty Planner! I love this size – smaller and more portable than the Junior/half-page size, and more bag friendly! Perfect for taking everywhere, bullet journaling, planning, whatever. But sizing was tricky….. It will require 3 cuts to the paper. In order to get the printing to work and have one side line up with the other when it’s flipped over, I had to pad a lot of extra space in the middle of my regular 8.5×11 sheet of paper. Since the pages are roughly 7×4.7ish – each page printed on 8.5×11 paper would then have to have 1.5″ trimmed off the bottom, and then 1.5″ in the middle (or fold it in half and take 0.75″ from the edge).

So it would be time intensive to trim down. I’m not sure of a better way to accomplish the same thing.

The second downside is that in this much smaller workspace the weekends unfortunately get abbreviated even more. But to not abbreviate them means super narrow tiny columns to fit 7 on two pages, so tiny that I wouldn’t personally want to use it because I HATE cramped layouts, so then what’s the point?

That all being said, it looks pretty good so far I think.

Pretty Pretty Planner Wish List

I’m always willing to consider new ideas and improvements for future planners. Integrating the monthly calendars with the weekly pages was a common request the past couple of years, and I’ve finally made it work this year. So what are some other wish list items you’d like to see? I’ve heard requests for Academic Year planners, Sunday start planners, and A4/A5 size planners. I know for myself personally, I’d love to try and get a Mini Happy Planner sized template to work too. Maybe even A6. So this is the second part – along with my other post asking what layouts are actually getting used – in getting some info on what to keep updating from year to year. Cause if I add more versions, maybe they will replace something else that is not as popular? Who knows yet. That’s why I’m asking you!

In the meantime, I have been pondering whether I want to add more “color schemes” to the Pretty Pretty Planner. So far there is the “classic” (rainbow) and black and white versions already. What about a Pastels version?

BetaPPP-1

Or maybe a Jewel Tones version?

BetaPPP-2

So let’s start a joint idea list (comment yours here!), and maybe when planning for next year I can be testing out some ideas.

Question for all you Pretty Pretty Planner users!

In updating these planners for 2018, I realized I maintain a LOT of different versions, and wonder how many of them are actually being used. I don’t have any other way to track which are more popular, and this poll will be really helpful in planning for next year. So if you are downloading the 2018 versions this year, please take a minute and let me know which versions and sizes you are using! You should be able to select more than one if you use multiple versions – this is the first time I’ve done a poll on this blog so hopefully it works like I planned! Thanks everyone! =D

2018 Pretty Pretty Planner is LIVE!!!

After a long delay, the 2018 Pretty Pretty Planner printables are finally uploaded and the links are live. Thanks to all for your patience and support!

As mentioned previously, only the non-editable PDFs are being offered this time around. If you want to chat with me about customization or modifications, I added a new email form on the new Contact Me page.

[Update: These PDFs will not allow anything other than opening or printing. Trying to do any other functions will require a password I won’t be making available. It’s inconvenient and unfortunate, but one of the decisions I made in response to the template stealing issues I am experiencing, along with discontinuing the availability of the customizable source Word documents. Also, these PDFs are designed for Adobe Acrobat 10 (X) or greater, and will not open in prior versions. Upgrading your Acrobat is free at Adobe’s website.]

As usual, if you see any mistakes or typos or errors in the templates, please let me know and I’ll fix and re-upload ASAP! I’ve checked and double-checked but something always slips through every year.

I’d also love to see pics of the planner pages in action – it’s so fun seeing how everyone uses them in real life.

Thanks again, and enjoy getting your planners all set up!

Pretty Pretty Planner – Letter Size

Pretty Pretty Planner – Junior Size

2018 is coming TONIGHT!

All the templates are finally DONE!! After work tonight I will process the PDFs and update here to make download links available. It might be closer to 9:30/10pm MST (give or take), but THEY ARE FINALLY (almost except for that stuff) DONE!!!

2018 In Progress!

Hi everyone. Thanks for all your comments and support for my Pretty Pretty Planner templates. I just wanted to leave a quick update on the 2018 templates, and some decisions made. I expect them to be another week (ish) – I am finishing up the Letter size this week, and then will move on to Junior ASAP.

Going forward, these will still be free. I’m not going to let the unethical jerkfaces of the world get me down! BUT, as mentioned earlier, I will only be making the PDFs available. If you are dire need of some customization of a header or box label that you used to be able to do in the editable Word templates, email me. I’m not making any promises, but maybe we can work something out if its a quick and dirty search and replace kind of thing.

In other news, a big request I see often is that the monthly calendars be integrated into the weekly planner pages. I’m accommodating that this year, using a Monday monthly start calendar as the weekly planners now featuring them start on Mondays anyways. But that means I will not also be providing those weekly versions without the monthlies, as that is a lot more work to update two copies of each. If demand is particularly strong for a version without the monthly calendar, I will reconsider once the versions below are released. In the meantime, this seemed like the best compromise.

So here’s the breakdown of what I will be releasing:

  • Classic (the rainbowy version)
    • Letter Size
      • Standard Weekly (with monthly, Monday start)
      • Hourly Weekly (with monthly, Monday start)
      • Business Weekly (no monthly)
      • Monthly, Sunday start
    • Junior Size
      • Standard Weekly (with monthly, Monday start)
      • Big Boxes Weekly (with monthly, Monday start)
      • Hourly Weekly (with monthly, Monday start)
      • Business Weekly (no monthly)
      • Monthly, Sunday start
  • Black and White¬† (really it’s more blue-greyish but intended for black and white/greyscale printing)
    • Letter Size
      • Standard Weekly (with monthly, Monday start)
      • Business Weekly (no monthly)
      • Monthly, Sunday start
    • Junior Size
      • Standard Weekly (with monthly, Monday start)
      • Business Weekly (no monthly)
      • Monthly, Sunday start

That’s it for now!
