Inside My New FiloFax Pocket Planner

I was recently inspired by a video I watched by Christy Tomlinson, a mixed media artist, about her obsession with planners. I've been also obsessed with planners and recently converted to a smaller planner. Below is my Filofax Pocket Patent planner in Duck Egg color and a Forever 21 makeup brush holder that I converted to a pen and notepad holder (who's idea came from YouTube channel Strange & Charmed).
The pocket planner is so small, only 4" wide and 5 1/2" tall. Nice size to fit in any purse. I just love this size! Below are lots of pictures of how I set up my planner.
I decorated the planner with supplies from Heidi Swapp, Teresa Collins, Kate Spade and Simple Stories (Michael's Joann's, Scrapbook Territory and Paper Source). They all have lots of gold, mint green and black accessories that coordinate perfectly.
"Notes" Divider
 I made my own dividers and laminated them.
"Wish List" Divider
 The inserts, printed on white paper and were purchased from Christy Tomlinson's etsy site.
 I use lots of my Paige doll images throughout the book.
"Places To Go" Divider
"Grocery List" Divider
"To Do" Divider
"Home" Divider
"Artful Play" Divider
Calendar Section
I cut up a Project Life page divider (mint green and clear polka dot) to fit in my pocket planner and embellished with Heidi Swapp stickers.
The calendar pages are a free download from the blog: Philofaxy. I embellished the calendar pages with washi tape. Then towards the back of the planner are just some miscellaneous pages.
Below are some of the supplies that I used to decorate with. Such great designs and colors...makes decorating oh so easy and fun!
And then on a final note, I was over whelmed to be included in the latest issue of Somerset Apprentice where they feature interviews with the Pros.
How cool is that, my picture is in the magazine!

Have a nice weekend everyone!
