August - December 2015 Planner

 

I got my Filofax back in December and since then, I’ve been going back and forth on the best layout for my weekly view. I’ve tried a few different layouts.. this horizontal week on 2 pages that I posted back in December is the one that I actually used more than any other but it wasn’t perfect. I hated having to look up the dates every week to fill in, I wasn’t in love with the horizontal layout, and to be honest, it was a little too free-form for it to be useful to me. I found myself drawing in extra boxes and using post it notes to add in extra sections that could have easily just been incorporated into the original layout.

I did notice that the more Plan With Me videos I watched, the more I fell in love with the look/layout of the Erin Condren Life Planner but wasn’t crazy about it being a ring bound book or certain things in the layout (the morning/day/night headings, among other things), so I decided to see what I could come up with when I tried to make my own planner set. I now present to you, the free August – December 2015 planner set.

5.5" x 8.5" August - December 2015 Planner Set.

As you can see in the picture above, this set is black and white. This is mostly because I made the set as a sample to see what it would look like. I will be making a 2016 version that will be in full color and include a few more pages that this set does not have. Specifically, a meal planning section, a cleaning checklist, and few other surprise goodies. If anyone has any ideas of pages they would like to see added, please leave a comment below!

Close up of the goals, notes, and Mon. – Wed. half of the week on 2 pages.

5.5" x 8.5" August - December 2015 Planner Set.

Close up of the Thurs. – Sun. page. Each week also includes a section for daily tracking, which is not something I’ve seen in any other planner. I’ve been using it specifically to keep track of daily medications & chores and it’s actually been great to be able to glance at the page and see if I did something the day before or not.

August - December 2015 Planner Pages (545 downloads)

This download includes August – December 2015 Month on 2 pages calendars, dated week on 2 pages for July 27, 2015 – January 3, 2016, 2015 & 2016 yearly overview, 1 important dates sheet, 1 to read/watch sheet, 1 to listen/download sheet, 5 to do list sheets, and 7 pages for notes. All pages are in PDF format and can be printed as many times as you want.

These pages are 5.5″ x 8.5″ and will fit A5 Filofaxes, junior sized Arc planners, and any other A5/half letter sized planner (Kikki K, Franklin Covey, Day Timer, etc). You can print them on any 5.5″ x 8.5″ paper, just make sure your settings are set to “Fit to Page.” As printers vary by manufacturer, I unfortunately can’t offer any tips on how to print these front and back.

If you do download and use these pages, I’d love to see how you are using them – leave a comment below or tag me on Instagram @dielikedisco with your feedback and pictures!

Update on Where I’ve Been

Yeah.. sorry about that absence. My life has been ridiculously busy and a little insane.

I also may have spent an exorbitant amount of time sitting on the couch that’s behind me in the video, watching Family Guy.

LOVE YOU GUYS!

“You Got This” Phone Background

Oh hey there! Long time no see. I feel like a complete jerk for just falling off the face of the Earth for the last couple weeks but I’ve been both really sick and really busy – I actually went for a full week without touching my computer because I was so exhausted. I wouldn’t recommend it. At any rate, I’m feeling better, finally starting to deal with some health issues that I’ve been ignoring for the last decade or so, and found out yesterday that we will be moving at the end of April. To make things even better, I’m going to be in Washington and Alaska for the first two weeks of April so I more or less have the next six days and then about a week and a half after I get back to sort, pack, and clean the entire apartment. I am going to try to get some posts scheduled so that there won’t be a weird absence during that time but umm.. don’t be surprised if I disappear again for a few days.

ANYWAYS.

Remember back when I wrote about my top 5 apps for making your own backgrounds? I actually made a background specifically for that post, but for some reason never actually used it. Right now seems like the perfect time to share it since I keep repeating “you got this” over and over in my head so that I don’t completely lose my shit with all the stuff I have going on.

Please feel free to download and share. The flower print background was found on We Heart It and I added the text using Over. The font is Blackout.

Free Daily Planner Page Printable

Free 5.5" x 8.5" Daily Planner Page Printable

I REALLY enjoy filling out forms and making lists so when I was trying to come up with a layout for a daily planner page printable, combining those two loves seemed like the most logical option.

I’ve been using this design on and off for a few months now and I think it pretty much covers all the things I need to keep track of on a daily basis. As you may have noticed, it’s not shown in my planner tour video because I have a love/hate relationship with daily pages. I go for weeks using them constantly then I have nothing going on in my life so it doesn’t make sense to waste the paper to fill out one box on the sheet. At any rate, when I do want to use a daily page, this is my go to printable.

These pages are 5.5″ x 8.5″ and will fit A5 Filofaxes, junior sized Arc planners, and any other half letter sized planner (Franklin Covey, Day Timer, etc). You can print them on any 5.5″ x 8.5″ paper, just make sure your settings are set to “Print actual size.” As printers vary by manufacturer, I unfortunately can’t offer any tips on how to print these front and back.

Hope you enjoy these daily planner pages and as with all of my printables, feel free to share!

Personalized Word Magnets

Make Your Own Personalized Word Magnets | dielikedisco.com

Fun fact #3534 about me: I like magnets. Particularly magnets with words of some sort on them. The snarkier, the better. Keith and I had gotten a set of geeky word magnets awhile back and it prompted me to start thinking about how to make my own set with words that I commonly use. I had picked up the supplies for this way back in like July then promptly lost them when my office area got moved so when I came across the roll of magnet tape last weekend, I knew I had to finally make these.

How to Make Your Own Personalized Word Magnets

You’re going to need:
– A roll of adhesive magnet tape*
– Access to a printer
– An Xacto knife or scissors

*This particular magnet tape isn’t exactly strong so if you use it, these are pretty much for decoration or holding up a single sheet of paper only. You can also use some of those free business card/advertisement magnets and glue instead the magnet tape.

Make Your Own Personalized Word Magnets | dielikedisco.com

Start by printing all of the words out that you want to use. I made a spreadsheet in Excel that had 20 .5″ rows (the width of my tape) and was able to fit 6 columns at .9″ each and 1 column at 1.82″ each on a letter sized piece of paper. I also made the grid lines a super light shade of gray so that the words would be easier to cut out.

Now that your words are all printed, cut them out!

Make Your Own Personalized Word Magnets | dielikedisco.com

Cut sections of magnet (you can use scissors or the Xacto knife – both work well) that are approximately the same length as your words and peel the white paper off of the magnet.

Stick your word to the adhesive, trying to line the edges of the magnet up with your grid lines as closely as possible. If you don’t get it on straight, don’t worry since the next step is trimming!

Flip your magnet over and trim off any excess paper. Or excess magnet if the paper is smaller.

And voila! You’re done. If you want to seal these you can coat them in a thin layer of Mod Podge or clear nail polish, however it will cause the paper to become somewhat transparent so if you intend to seal these you may want to print your words on thicker paper or card stock.

Let’s ignore the fact that my fridge is in the most awkward, badly lit location in my entire apartment and focus on the fun magnets.

A Couple Things to Note

– As I said before, these magnets are not in any way strong so please don’t be surprised if they won’t hold much.
– You can use this same technique to make washi tape magnets (the glasses and mint polka dot magnets are both washi tape in the above pictures) or scrapbook paper magnets

Does anyone else have any ideas for making their own personalized word magnets? I’m debating whether I should make more on colored paper with different fonts.

Free Bill Pay Checklist Printable

Bill Pay Checklist

Holy blogger burnout, Batman. I haven’t felt like doing much of anything blog related the last week or two. Realistically, it’s because I’m seeing a new doctor and he massively changed the doses of my depression and ADHD meds so I’m still adjusting to them but it makes me feel like the laziest person ever.

Anyway! Since I’ve failed to actually complete any projects, I figured I’d share a printable that was mentioned briefly in my planner tour video: the bill pay checklist. This is just a single A5/8.5″x5.5″ page that has all of the months filled in and gives you columns to fill in up to 12 different monthly bills. There is also a section at the bottom of each month to fill in your yearly totals for each bill if you’re into that kind of detailed tracking.

Free Bill Pay Checklist Printable

Details
This particular printable is meant to be printed single sided on 5.5″ x 8.5″ paper in landscape mode. As with all of my printables, they will fit A5 Filofaxes, junior sized Arc planners, and any other half letter sized planner (Franklin Covey, Day Timer, etc). You can print them on any 5.5″ x 8.5″ paper, just make sure your settings are set to “Print actual size.”

After spending the last hour or so looking at this I noticed that the boxes are rather small to write more than numbers in so if you want to print this with the names of your bills filled out, you can open the PDF with Adobe Acrobat Readers Fill & Sign tool to enter your info. If you want it to match the layout, the fonts used are Avenir Next Condensed Regular for the months and 1942 Report for the headline.
