Carpe Diem sneak peeks 2016

I’m an enormous fan of Carpe Diem planners and use mine daily, so I am thrilled to see their amazing new planners and accessories for 2016! So quickly onto the good stuff, lets have a look at what’s new for 2016???


New collections and collaborations

Firstly Simple Stories are back with not one but two planner collections! Choose from…..

The Reset Girl: A gorgeous vintage inspired collection designed by one of my favourite planner gurus, The Reset Girl. The Reset Girl collection includes planners in Pink and Orange aka Ballerina and Persimmon along with a whole host of truly stunning vintage style planner accessories.


Posh: Posh is the second collection from the designers at Simple Stories. Its a fun preppy collection featuring classic stripes, spots and gorgeous floral. In terms of new planner colours, Ivory and Marigold make their debut along with the returning colours of Aqua, Robin’s Egg, Coral and Platinum.


Planner Upgrades

This year Simple Stories have taken on all the feedback from the more discerning planner girl and the 2016 release includes a number of upgrades to your planner including:

  • All leather exterior AND interior!
  • Thicker paper – the paper inserts have been upgraded from 100gsm to 140gsm
  • The A5 Rings have been upgraded to an all new, high quality 6 ring binding mechanism
  • Ring hardware is now available in gold and silver. For gold hardware take a look at the Ballerina, Persimmon, Ivory & Robins Egg planners. For Silver hardware check out the Aqua, Coral, Platinum & Marigold
  • Monthly spreads are now on their own inserts (previously they were on the back of the monthly dividers)
  • Boxed set or A La Carte, now you can either buy a complete box set or completely customise your planner using the A La Carte planners and accessories.

  • Washi tapes

New inserts

A planner would be nothing without its inserts and Simple Stories now have a weekly insert for everyone, choose from Horizontal, Vertical, Hourly or Daily.


I’m a vertical girl, so I am thrilled to have these inserts available in an A5 size!

Box Set vs Build your own planner

This year you can either buy a box set containing everything you need to get planning straight away, or, you can pick and mix your planner and accessories to create a planner completely unique to you! All the planners are available on their own with no inserts, or in a box set complete with dividers and inserts.
