Hello, We R readers, Laura here! Today, I have a fun monthly planner dashboard to share with you. I am a little planner obsessed. I have had a lot of planners over the years in many different styles. When I heard about the Planner Punch Board coming out, I was super excited! It is so convenient to have one tool to punch pages for all my different planners.
I have a Heidi Swapp memory planner that I use for recording daily gratitudes and little memories from our day. My main planner is a workhorse and doesn’t leave much room for any memory keeping, so it has been fun to add to this separate one. The colors are fairly neutral, so I like to add pops of color into my planner when I can.
I started by using a pretty pink patterned paper from the Maggie Holmes Chasing Dreams paper pad. I cut it to fit in my planner. Then, I used the planner punch board to punch the perfect holes on my page. My exact Heidi Swapp planner was not listed in the instructions. But the holes for the small size were the same. So instead of lining my paper up at the guide, I centered my paper on the punch board. I love how versatile this punch board is.
I found a pretty yellow floral paper in the small paper pad. I cut the paper to size and used my mini alphabet punch board to spell out the word “May”. To create the letter M you actually attach two letter N’s together with adhesive.
I attached the letters to the background page using my staple board. I used the large staples. The staple board has a magnetic guide which allows you to staple anywhere on your page.
Then, I found a little calendar page in the small paper pad. I cut out the May calendar and attached it to my dashboard with the medium size pink staples.
To add a little something extra to it, I added some gold Thickers with the numbers 05 for the month of May.
Now, I have a pretty dashboard every time I open my planner. How do you like to decorate your planner?
