Plan your Beautiful Life

Today on my blog I have a free printable for you. I love planning and part of making my planning effective is to include different accessories to my planner. I love this quote and added it to the note card "Life is what you make of it, plan on making it BEAUTIFUL.

One of the things that I find most useful is having note cards handy for making lists. I use them for to dos, shopping, project or errand lists. You can print these out using regular copy paper or on card stock for a bit more durability and wear when taking them with you on a shopping excursion. How you use them or insert them into your planner is totally left to your imagination.

You can cut your paper out with scissors or a paper cutter, I cut mine out with a Fiscars Paper cutter that I purchased locally

I like rounding my corners with a Crop-a-dile Corner Chopper by We R Memory Makers. I purchased mine at Hobby Lobby locally, but you can find them online in many places. (links below for all the tools I used to make mine)

For my personal planner I use an A5 binder with inkWELL Press inserts and I add the little note card to it by punching holes with my A5 punch. I add items to it and when I leave home to go shopping I bring it with me. Sometimes I use it to jot notes down when I'm working on a home project. When added to my planner it also serves as a little marker at the top where it peeks out of the planner to hold my spot for the current week's planner spread.

For my inkWELL Press bound planner which I use for my work planning, I washi the note card onto my notes page to keep it handy for jotting down items I need to order for the shop or supplies I need to pick up at my local office supply store. You can do the same with it for your daily tasks, to do, shopping or errand list.

Below is the file image and the full sized image is located at the bottom of this post for you to save it to your computer, print and cut it and use it in your planner or as a 'Take Away' to help you remember whats on your To Do, shopping or errand list for the day. Simply click on the image at the bottom of this post, then click on Save to Computer to print and cut.

I'm including the photo below to show that when you print the file on your printer, it may come out slightly different in color and size than what you see on my blog, depending on your printer type. I printed these out using the file I'm sharing with you today. Both of them are the same brand of printer, using the same brand of ink and the size and colors came out slightly different from the other. Both still a beautiful shade of teal blue and slightly different in size, they will add a lovely touch of color to your planner and are quite useful and handy.
