Elegantly Organized, Pretty Planning & Glam Planning

Who doesn’t love to have a beautiful planner filled with colorful free printables and amazing sticker sets to make their pages pop and bling with color and style? Pretty planning takes many forms, maybe you are decorating or customizing your Bullet Journal, Filofax or Midori Travelers Notebook. Perhaps you are just trying to balance your own planning & organizational style with a few functional stickers.  Are you starting a spiritual journal or daily devotional of some kind and need some inspiration to get started? Regardless of your interest, I aim to have a little something here for everyone.

What Is Pretty Planning? Where do I get Glam Planning Materials?

I get this question a lot, but the only real answer I have is to keep your eyes open wherever you are. If you are a scrapbook-style art journal junkie then you can find great materials in discarded magazines or old post cards. Local retails such as Michael’s or Hobby Lobby are also great places to visit monthly to take advantage of their 40% off coupons. If you don’t want to wait for shipping, Etsy shops are one of the most amazing resources for unique and custom notebooks, journals, planners and travelers notebooks out there. There is never a shortage of places to go shopping for amazing art supplies for rock-bottom prices. If you are interested in looking for notebooks check out my notebook & journal reviews section for great finds on the cheap!

If you are thinking of building your own pretty 2018 custom planner looking at combining a Filofax or ring-bound planner system would be a good idea for you. Custom Inserts are easy to find on both Pinterest and places such as Etsy for relatively low price, but what type of planner should you buy?
