Make Your Own Dashboards, Vellums, and Acetates

Make Your Own Dashboards, Vellums, and Acetates

One of the best things about having a paper planner is that each one is unique. You can make yours as pretty or as functional or as somewhere-in-between as you’d like.

I don’t tend to heavily decorate my planner pages; my brain works better with lot of white space. However, especially in the fall and winter (my favorite seasons), I decorate my insert covers heavily (for me).

When I discovered that I could not only design my own dashboards but also print on vellum and acetate, I was over the moon! Here’s how I did it. Links to the products I used (or as similar as I could currently find) are below the video.


(Links are Amazon Affiliate Links; if you choose to purchase any product listed, your cost does not increase, but I may receive a small amount… to pay for things like server space!) 😉


The Intersection of Pretty and Functional Planning

The Intersection of Pretty and Functional Planning

I love collab videos! Kelsie at Kelsie.Plans contacted me via Instagram and asked if we could collaborate on the facets of functional planning. How could I resist?

Go watch Kelsie’s video for her take on how she makes her functional planning pretty, and check out her Instagram feed and her Patreon for more planner goodness!

Thank you, Kelsie!

Putting Rings into a Traveler’s Notebook

Putting Rings into a Traveler’s Notebook

After many failed attempts and some help from the Chic Sparrow Facebook Group, I’ve finally gotten rings to stay inside of my strings!

These are personal size rings inside of a Chic Sparrow B6 slim notebook (Deluxe Odyssey Hera, for those of you keeping score). My tabs do stick out a bit at the opening side, but I like it that way. Next up, I would love to try the same thing in a regular B6 (not a Slim). I’m wondering if 30 mm rings will fit into a regular B6…
