In our technological world where there is an app for everything, there is a small and growing movement to get back in touch with pen and paper and embrace good old fashioned planners. If you had a diary or Filofax back in the day you will probably have you used it to keep your life and to-do’s organised. Over the past few years there has been a slow and growing trend to take pen and paper planning to the next level with a spot of decoration using stamps, stickers, washi tape and cute accessories to decorate your planner, which certainly appeals to the crafter in me.

Being a bit of a planner addict, I have fallen in love with the adorable Carpe Diem A5 planners which are being released by US Scrapbook Company Simple Stories in November and am delighted to be offering them to Homemakery customers who fancy starting 2017 with a fresh planner slate!

The Carpe Diem planners come in 6 colours and this is how they will look in real life. From left to right we have: Black, Robins Egg, Coral, Teal, Pink and Platinum (Robins Egg has seriously stole my heart!).

Unlike most planners which can be a bit dull on the inside Simple Stories have created beautifully designed dividers and thoughtful inserts which will come included in your planner, along with a range of gorgeous “a la carte” planner accessories which you can pick and mix from to make your planner personal to you.

Simple Stories Planner Inserts

So to give you a bit of information on the planners:

  • The planner is made of faux leather and comes in 6 lovely colours
  • The inside is covered with black and white polka dot fabric
  • The planner measures 8 inches wide, 9.4 inches tall and 1.375 inches deep
  • The inserts measure 5.83 x 8.27 inches – the standard A5 insert size
  • The rings and binding mechanism are silver and use the traditonal “filofax” 6 ring binding. This means that these planners are really versatile and you will be able to mix and match with other planner inserts and accessories on the market.
  • The planner includes an elastic pen loop on the right inside cover
  • There are 4 pockets on the inside left cover and 1 pocket on the inside right cover
  • A metal camera charm is included to either hang from the snap closure or from an inside ring
  • Each planner includes a variety of inserts for all of your planning needs – {12) monthly calendar pages, {12} monthly tabbed dividers, {72} weekly inserts and {6) assorted decorative inserts
  • The planner pages are undated so you can start planning at any time

Shall we talk accessories?? They are seriously cute and will mix and match with the many other planners on the market.
