This is the second half of the blog post on my A5 Purple Malden Filofax set-up. We have so far, briefly mentioned inserts and some of the different sections I include within my planner and now i’m going to show you the rest of it!
This is an image of a page picked pretty randomly from my diary. The A5 size is perfect for me in that I can plan what i’m doing every hour if I need to! I like to keep the decoration in my diary section simple so I can see important dates easily but I do use washi tape along the bottom because I rarely use that space. I like to block out my time if I have essays or exam revision to do and I use various different colored highlighting pens for the different types of event I might have on. For example:
- Pink is University (classes, meetings with tutor etc)
- Yellow is Exercise (gym, running or a fitness class)
- Blue is Personal (coffee with friends, night out or cinema)
- Green is Other
At the back of my diary I have my ‘other’ inserts mentioned in the previous post and these were made from pieces of colored card from Amazon. I used glitter pens for the borders and scrapbook page butterflies to decorate the top right hand corner.
Over the next few weeks I will blog in more detail about these but for now these images are just to show you what I do. Again, at the back of my planner I have plastic wallet inserts for cards and papers etc that came with the Filofax but that which can be bought either online or in any good stationary shop.
The final pages of my diary are dedicated to my notebook paper and timetable which I printed off and colored in with some pastel shade pencils in order to make my classes stand out. Extra inserts that I keep in my Filofax folder mean that should I need to make an extra section for my diary, I can straight away.
I hope this has shown you what can be achieved decoratively using a Filofax and please do not forget, if you have any questions or would like to see a blog post about something specifically then let me know!
