I'm pleased to share our new monthly planner feature from Lexi Daly! This will be replacing the Moments Inked newsletter that we previously published. Lexi is an innovative and dedicated planner user and she has so much to share!

Miplannerambgraphic-01

Hello! Welcome to my first monthly guest post as the new Moments Inked Planner Ambassador! I’ve really enjoyed getting back into paper planning with the Moments Inked line over the last couple of years, incorporating stamping into my weekly plans, and even creating printed add-ins. So when Nichole asked me to take on this new position, I was really excited and ready to tackle it. From everyday use to new stamp sets and printables, I look forward to sharing both old and new products to help us all keep our planners both fun and functional!

Papertreydaysdashgraphic

With a new schedule of Papertrey Ink blog events rolling out this year, I thought it would be nice to start off with a printable dashboard dedicated to keeping track of everything so you don’t miss a single inspirational moment. I created two versions depending on how you might use it – one, to fit the full page binder die, and another to fit the note page binder die, both from the Moments Inked: Binder Page Die Collection.

For my planner, I've chosen to go with the smaller size dashboard to move from one month to the next, but you could use the larger size and create a whole section complete with lined and graph paper refills for wish lists, card layouts, and color ideas. Simply download the pdf, print on a standard sheet of card stock at 100%, fit the appropriate die within the guidelines to cut, and then decorate as you wish – although the schedule is so full of goodness that there’s not a lot of room to decorate on the front! I suggest going for it on the back and adding a wish list post it (or two or four!) for release day.

In addition to the new schedule, we also have two new Moments Inked stamp sets debuting this month, both created to coordinate with the existing Moments Inked: Boxed Die Collection. The die collection was created to fit the various spaces on the planner and is great for creating stickers that fit into those spaces or help divide the larger column into smaller spaces for checklists, events, etc.

Day by day inspiration

I’ve often used them to create day phrases or decorative elements which led me to design the two new sets, Moments Inked: Day by Day and Moments Inked: Day by Day Blocks. I love incorporating silly phrases to break up the to do's and scheduled events – not only do they make me smile, but they are great for adding a pop of fun and color. Fun and color make me a happy planner! 

Daybydaylayout2

While there are many stamp sets to create phrases that will continue to be useful for a few one-offs and holidays, I’m so excited to have a set of perfect-fit daily phrases to scatter throughout my weekly spreads. There are several options for each day of the week and a few that aren’t day-specific. Some may get used almost every week (Happy Hump Day!) and others when specifically planned (Taco Tuesday!) or rotated throughout the weeks for variety (TGIF or Fri-yay?). Choices make me happy too!

Daybydaylayoutright

And Moments Inked: Day by Day Blocks? Well, as you can probably guess, it is a set of pattern block images created to fit the Boxed Dies for a perfect pop of pattern and color – check out the dots behind my quote and the starburst behind Fri-yay! Use them separately or layered behind a phrase or other image as I have. The sky is the limit! Of course, there are great card opportunities with both of these new sets. But this is getting long, so I’ll save that for a few countdown posts on my blog.

I hope you’re as excited about the new Moments Inked stamps and this new monthly blog feature as I am! Until next month…

Challenge

Lexi has shared so many clever ways to add color and style to your planner, making planning a fun, creative process rather than drudgery. For today's anniversary challenge, we want you to take on another part of paper crafting that you might see as drudgery, and that is actually getting a card in the mail! Your challenge is to create a new card for someone in your life who could use a little cheering up this week. While you have your supplies out, put as much time into the envelope as you do the card. Perhaps create your own envelope out of a heavier cardstock or watercolor paper. Paint it, ink it, stamp it, brayer it, color it, doodle on it…whatever you are inspired to do, just do it! If you need inspiration, check out all the altered envelopes on Pinterest! Use a unique method to add the address to your envelope. Calligraphy, alphabet stamps, letter stickers, labels, just to name a few. Really have fun with this and make the envelope just as fun to make as the card!

How-to-win

1. Create a new project that includes a card with coordinating altered envelope. And mail it!

2. Your project must use at least one Papertrey product.  

3. Upload a photo of your project to your blog, Instagram, online gallery or any other photo-hosting site (such as photobucket or flickr).

4. Add the direct link to your project on our InLinkz list below.

5. ONLY ONE PROJECT ENTRY PER PERSON PLEASE!

6.  And/or you can leave a comment here to be eligible to win. Do you use the Moments Inked Basic Planner of Meal Planner? Or do you use another brand of planner? What types of things would you like to see included in this new monthly feature? What area of planning do you struggle with and would like tips on? (Just click the small "comments" link  beside the date in the footer of this post.  If you are reading this as an email subscription, be sure to click through to the actual blog to leave an eligible comment)

7. You have until 7am ET, Wednesday, March 15th to add your project link or comment and qualify for the contest.

8. TEN randomly selected winners (five comments and five projects) will be announced on our March Release Winners page no later than 9pm ET, March 15th.

The-prizes

TEN randomly selected winners will each receive an $25 Papertrey gift certificate to spend however they choose! Thank you for joining us today and best of luck with the contest!

    Wish I’d had a planner when I was a young mom, trying to balance work with two young kids who were into all sorts of activities; but as a retiree, I have little need to keep track of much. These planners are pretty cute and look like it would be easy to make them attractive as well as functional. Almost makes me wish I had a busy schedule again. Almost…hah!

    Sarosa says:

    I have a major problem with this challenge: you note we are actually supposed to MAIL it! But that means looking up an address, writing it out, finding a stamp, and actually getting it out to the mailbox. Hmmm … can I rise to the occasion? 🙂 I do not do daily planners, but I do make faith journals, and I can see that your designs could work really well! Thank you!

    I don’t use planners but the icons are cute. In future Planner Monthly Features, I would like to see a card or tag made using the planner icons.

    I do use planners, usually ones I can find for a good deal as I just toss them at the end of the year. I do love ones with inspiring quotes, but I find I’m so busy with everything on my to do lists in my planners that there is no time to decorate the planner itself hehe!

    I don’t use a planner that I have to create, as I am already so addicted to card-making, I decided I didn’t need to branch out into the planners, but love some of teh cute little stamps!

    I love paper planning! It allows so much creativity that the digital format can’t replicate. Thanks for awesome inspiration!

    Really looking forward to this feature. I use a very basic planner so maybe this will be the kick-start I need to make it more decorative and even more useful.
    LOVE envelope art so this is a terrific challenge. Cheers.

    Angela W says:

    I don’t really need to use a planner for my activities. However, I think it’s really fun to see all the different ways it has become more fun to decorate the pages. I do wonder how people who are so busy make time to stamp and color in their planner, but I’m glad they do. I’m sure it makes the month a lot more fun to look at than just plain pages!

    Terri E. says:

    I use the passion planner. I had the PTI planner, but it was too bulky for my needs. I do love the stamping that goes into it and like the idea of adding that to my calendar that I use. I can’t wait to see more great ideas throughout the year.

    Luanne Ford says:

    Now that my kids are grown, I don’t use a planner. I do use a monthly calendar though, with big squares to jot anything down I need to remember, like a lunch date or someone’s birthday!

    I never got into the whole Planner thing…..BUT I love to see how everyone decorates them! I can certainly doll up an envelope–that sounds more like my speed! lol

    jan metcalf says:

    I use Moments Inked to track activities and appointments and as a quasi journal, noting my gratitude and at least one act of kindness each day, any exercise, as well have monthly sections to sketch new card ideas! Love it! Although I could do much more to add color, organize tasks, use the accompanying dies and stamps…..so glad this is a new feature!

    I do use a planner binder (currently a pretty Webster’s Pages’ rose gold one that fits in my handbag), but there are no calendar pages in it! I just use it for all the lists I make – I’m a list maker, not a planner. I wish that PTI had smaller planners and lots of pretty colours to choose from.

    I do have a planner that was gifted to me, but I don’t use it like I should. Im knows bdava just let life happen kinda person since I don’t work outside the home and don’t have kids activities to keep track of. I wish I was!

    Now mailing cards and envelope art, I love! I even have a penpal. I just bought a lettering book and I’m waiting for my pens and markers to arrive. I’ve received some beautiful examples! I’ll share in today’s blog post when I’m finished.

    Yay! I love this challenge!

    I don’t use either… I use paper to do lists… but I doubt I would spent that much time decorating a to do list….

  • 27
    Donna Gourley says:

    I’m a huge “list maker” but I don’t use a planner. It’s always seemed to big and bulky for me. I usually make a paper list for the week of things I need to buy and errands I need to run before work/during lunch hour etc. and that seems to work well for me.

    Now that my kids are grown (and out of the house) the need to keep up with multiple appointments etc. has also decreased greatly. I do keep up with things at home using a large blotter style calendar that hangs in my laundry room so that I see it before leaving the house on a regular basis.

    Jeni says:

    I don’t use planners at all. I should probably do a meal planner but I probably wouldn’t be hungry for what I had planned for that day 🙂 I do like Lexi’s Papertrey Days download though so I will be downloading that to remind me of the new Papertrey schedule. Thanks!

  • 29

    I love the new planner stamps! I use a planner filled with beautiful photography and love to letter inspiring quotations in it throughout the year. For me, one of the happiest parts of cardmaking is lettering the address on the envelope and mailing it off to friends and family near and far. Since I mail so many cards each month, I have been keeping a ‘Happy Mail’ Journal. I note the date, recipient, stamp set, and sentiment used. It reminds me to use different stamps for each person, especially those who receive weekly ‘thinking of you’ and encouragement cards. It’s fun to look back through my journal to see just how many cards I have mailed off during the month! ♡

    I love looking at planner posts but don’t use one myself.

    Marianne says:

    So happy today’s challenge is not about planners, because I am definitely not a planner, and never will be. Mailing out more cards is one of my crafty goals for this year, and I think I can manage creating my own envelope and decorating it in some way.

  • 32
    Pat A. says:

    Since retiring in 2003, I no longer use a planner. But I wish PTI’s planners had been available years ago. I would have been all over that! It would have been so much fun decorating the pages with stamps and color!

    Linda C says:

    Looking forward to the new ideas for the planners. Not used to decorating envelopes though

    Jennifer T says:

    Such fun and cute ideas for planners! I used to have one and I loved filling it in with stickers and colored inks. So many fun ways to personalize them!

  • 35
    Sandy Dayhoff says:

    I use one of those little pocket planners that’s just slightly bigger than a checkbook, but thinner. It’s enough to keep track of everything, but then I’m retired!
    I love the daily challenges – really makes me S-T-R-E-T-C-H my creativity!

    KKO says:

    I enjoy seeing the planners in use and liked this post but I don’t use a planner myself– we have a (very) large paper calendar posted and all family members compile their events in this central location.
    Envelope art is such a fun challenge–can’t wait to see what everyone creates!

  • 38
    Carmela Hubler says:

    I love your ideas and inspiration. I received a planner at a women’s conference I just attended. I haven’t gotten into the planner scene but I have been thinking about using some of my stamps to decorate it a bit. I am not sure I would do it on a regular basis as I use my crafting time to make cards. I think some of the ideas can be translated to making cards so I am always open to new techniques. Your website and blog offer a variety of ideas for many different crafters so I love what you offer. Thank you!

    Rita says:

    I use planners for inspiration, goal-setting, and action plans. For me, I didn’t like seeing my old planners filled with primarily to-do lists and chores so I decided to create more of a “Spark Joy” planner that focuses on how to create days packed with what and who brings me joy. Now when I look back at the year, I see inspirational quotes, captured moments (details of the day) that I want to remember, color and images that make me smile. My daily bulleted “baby steps” is a time capsule of how I achieved dreams bit-by-bit. The planner is also a place for stamping, coloring, journaling which means it’s fun; I enjoy making dashboards, inserts, pockets, bookmarks, and more. I will love stamp sets and dies that I can use for inspiration, gratitude, whimsical tiny characters/images that make me smile, etc. I know PTI will continue to bring amazingly creative and innovative possibilities to Moments Inked.

    I have been using a planner — and the same one — since 1993, even in the years when people laughed at me to be carrying one! It keeps me sane. It uses the smaller-size pages with the 6 holes. My pages are mainly utilitarian and plain but I love this PTI day-by-day download that I can put in every month!

    I’ve tried using a traditional planner, but found it too time consuming. I still use my trusty old calendar planner. Last summer I tried using a bullet journal and that worked for the summer when I had 2 months off. Once work started again, I went back to my old grid calendar.

    Linda E (uncbballfan) says:

  • 91
    Joyce M. says:

    I prefer to use my computer for a calendar, but I recently purchased the PTI meal planner, and have really loved using it. The main reason I wanted to get the meal planner was to help me keep track of the food in my freezer. I often make an extra for the freezer, and was having trouble remembering to check to see what I had when I was thinking about dinners for the week. Now, when I put something in the freezer, I log it in a new section I created in my meal planner. I write what it is, the date, and how many servings. Then, when I am meal planning for the week, I can turn to the freezer section and see if there is a meal already made that I can use during that week. It helps remind me to start the defrost a day or two ahead of time. It is also a big help in reminding me what I have, because I like to wait at least a month before repeating a meal, and that’s hard to remember without a system. It’s kind of like keeping inventory of what is in my freezer.

    Natasha says:

    As much as I love the whole planner trend, I have had two (one for 2015-16, one for 2016-17) and I have barely used them. I love looking at what others use theirs for and I absolutely love the products.

    I guess what I’d like to see is the planner products featured in other uses- like I’m starting project life, and I think a lot of the planner products would make really cute inserts for albums

    Susan W. says:

    I use a combination of electronic calendar on my iPhone, a spiral one at work, AND a re-writable one on my fridge at home. Call me crazy. Back in the day when I used the ring binder from Franklin Day Planner I would have LOVED all of the planning tools Lexi is showing us here. As it is, I can still pull off some of them for the spiral bound I use.

    I never really got into doing planners. I keep a simple calendar on my computer. Love this idea for a challeng because I often spend so much time on a card and then I send it in a drab envelope.

    TracyK says:

    I don’t use a paper planner. I keep my calendar electronically so I can access on my phone – much easier and one less thing to haul around! I would rather spend time making cards and working on my other hobbies than decorating a planner. There are just not enough hours in the day!

    Like many, at this stage in my life, I don’t use a daily planner, even for meals. But I also think that stamps can be made for dual purposes, which would include planners and cards. Happy Anniversary PIT !

    Fun idea. I’m loving the new format too

  • 112
    Lorraine says:

    I used to have a planner – actually I tried a few times, but gave it up. They’re too bulky for me to carry around. I end up using a small monthly calendar that can fit in my purse or the calendar on my phone. But I love seeing all of the cute stamp sets – and use some of the planner sets to make to-do lists, etc.

  • 113
    Gina Eggebrecht says:

    Oh yay. I LOVE the new planner stamps!!! I am going to love this feature every month and cannot wait to see how Lexi inspires us. I also *love* her print-outs. Her year-at-a-glance print-out is one of my favorite pages in my planner.

  • 116
    Mutzy Mia says:

    My planner is one that I can throw in my purse and keep it there. Activities are jotted in pencil as often plans change and I need to be able to accommodate that. I appreciate the cute detail available to add to planners but to be honest any extra time would go into card making, not making my planner pretty. I’m just happy when I can keep what I have current. I had to chuckle at those who no longer need a planner…I’m a grandma and couldn’t live without one!

    I don’t have the Moments Inked planner system, but I would love to have one. I’m not really sure what I would want out of it, but from everything I’ve seen, it looks like it covers a lot of bases in a variety of areas. I mostly just keep my calendar in a very rudimentary Excel file, but I have gradually begun to transfer a few appointments and things over to my new iphone. Just too busy to search out anything new, I suppose. But I am loving all the tips and insights here!

    I’ve never caught the planner bug, despite really needing too. I think I still associate it with the huge filofax I used to haul around with me when I was working a job where every second was scheduled. Now I just have a cute Winnie the pooh wall calendar and don’t miss too many events!

    Leigh Penner says:

    What a great challenge!
    As for planners, I haven’t jumped on that bandwagon yet… I have a planner for work and one for DT assignments, but I don’t take the time to pretty them up. I’d rather spend my crafty time making cards.

  • 131
    Sharon D says:

    I love to decorate envelopes (and the inside of cards also). It just makes them special. I usually do a smaller or simpler version of the images I used on the front of the card. For example, if I used a large floral bouquet on the front, I’ll stamp a few flowers on the inside and on the envelope. If the main stamp is all one large image (so I don’t have any single flowers to stamp), I’ll do a few leaves or something like that. Or the outside might be colored in, and the envelope and inside might just have a pale outline.

    Lauren Yo. says:

    I love my paper planner! I was inspired to use it as a daily journal as well, but for some reason I can’t quite get that area of my planner organized. I also would love a “month end review page” with areas to jot down highlights from the month, such as: books reads, shows you got into, service events, best moment of fun, favorite new recipe, quotes,…

  • 142
    Kris says:

    I’ve been using my Franklin Day Planner for over 20 years so have not joined the “newfound” planner bandwagon. I enjoy seeing what the team has created. It seemed I barely had time to get the family activities in my planner much less transform it into such beautiful handcrafted design…I’m in awe of all this work!

    Becca Yahrling says:

    I have a planner, but no inserts yet! lol And it’s just me & hubby so not a lot of planning going on. But I think I want to use it for my card making somehow.

    Teddra says:

    I’ve used a daily planner since college and tried to use the PTI planner when it was introduced, but it just didn’t work for my needs at this time of life. I use a planner as more of a journal for things I want to remember about each day rather than what’s ahead in the next week or month. I’d like to see a stamp set of small, thoughtful phrases or quotes about the seasons/holidays for each month. I mail out 5-10 cards every month for birthdays, anniversaries, get well, thinking of you, etc. and have never dressed up the envelope. I’m excited to try this out!!

    Heather says:

    I don’t currently use any planner. I love the idea of the Moments Inked planner; but I’m afraid to get started because there are a lot of options. Sadly, too many options can be paralyzing for me. Then I’m also worried that I’ll get the supplies and stop using them after a few months, like I’ve done with every other planner I’ve ever tried. But this one is so beautiful and so personalizable that I’d really like to give it a try.

    I’m looking forward to Lexi’s monthly focus on planners. I own almost all of the Moments Inked sets but have yet to work out a routine to using them. I love the Moments Inked planner but have another planner that I use for work, so if I can set aside the time to start using my Moments Inked products, it will be with my work planner.

    I am not a planner person. I use my online calendars for work and family life. While I love the pretty planners I see online, the time it takes seems huge to me. Honestly, when I have time to craft, it goes towards cardmaking. Still, love the inspiration … thank you!

    Helen F. says:

    I do not use a planner now that I am retired, but when I worked I could not live without my Daily Planner. I received a”Create 365 Monthly Planner” as a gift and plan to start using it. There are stickers and decorative embellishments in the box, but I certainly can add stamping to the pages 🙂 I will be watching for Lexie’s ideas.
    I always decorate or make the envelopes for my cards, usually by stamping one of the images that appear on the card inside.

    I’ve been looking at the whole planner thing, love PTI’s but I settled on trying out the Bullet Journal. Right now it’s just my scribbles, but if I like the idea I will be using many products to “fancify” it.

    This is my second year with the PTI planner and I love it! Perfect size, lovely paper and a beautiful cover. I don’t really use any of the cutesy additional items, just the basics for me, but I am so happy with it!

    I don’t use a planner anymore, as my life has changed from busy inventor, single mom, small business owner to retired empty nester and volunteer. But I still love the stamp sets to make the awesome cards that can still be made with the stamp sets!

    I don’t use any planners, aside from my work Outlook calendar, which doesn’t really qualify, right? I am struggling with meal plans, that’s one thing I would definitely want to do, just need to put my mind in the right space… Thank you for ideas and inspiration, love the building blocks today!!

    Love the idea of coordinating envelopes…makes gift giving a little extra specialarge!

    I do have a planner but not one I stamp in…which is incredibly difficult to believe. I think I might have to change that!

    I use a plain, basic planner, and haven’t taken time to decorate it much. Any ideas are great!

    I don’t use a pen and ink calendar. Google all the way 🙂 But I do love gathering tips on organizing and I love journaling.

    Confession…I’m not a planner! I’m a “fly by the seat of my pants” kinda girl!

    Thanks for the posting the new schedule. I use a planner, but it’s basically a big, practical to-do list. I never decorate, add stickers, etc. I would like to get into envelope art, but it always seems like the card takes so much time that I don’t have much left for a fancy envelope!

    I don’t use a planner. I loved seeing Lexi use the supplies for card making.

    I just use my phone to keep track of things, but these planners look like so much fun!

    I don’t use a paper planner. I haven’t been successful using paper planners in previous years so I had given up on them. I have been using the calendar feature on my phone but not to its full intent. I like the idea of using a paper planner to document our daily lives.

    Happy 10th anniversary, PTI! Here’s to many more!
