Monday with Megan: Filofax Affair

Hey, Fran! Yo, Stan! Let’s plan! Have you caught the Filofax fever? It’s all about putting your best laid plans into action… Actually, on second thought, it’s all about putting a little action into your plans. Why? Because it’s the art of taking basic planner pages and turning them into something special, all with a few crafting supplies.

First, the planner. Filofax planners are just one of many popular planner brands on the market right now.


Kate Spade is another popular planner option on the market. Check out this sweet style I found on the blog Paper Love Story.


Of course, there are many more choices out there. You just have to find the style that best meets your needs. Once you’ve selected your perfect planner, the fun truly begins. That’s when it’s time to dress the pages of your planner with stickers, tape, doodles, dividers and much, much more!

Here are just a few of the fun planner pieces on the market at the moment.

Love these sticky notes on in the amazing Happie Scrappie shop!


This is on my must-have list—washi tape by Mieryaw on Etsy. The thin style is just right for placing on planner pages.


When it comes to adorable paper clips, Allison Kreft for Webster’s Pages definitely knows here stuff. Wouldn’t these tweets look sweet on the pages of a planner?


Taking a stab at adding tabs is a breeze with these colorful stick-on options.


Cathy Vee has darling dividers down!


Isn’t this happiness enough to make you want to get organized? Not yet feeling up to the task? Take a look at what some talented scrapbookers have done with their planners recently.

When it comes to planner play, Anabelle has the look down. Her pages are always so whimsical and lighthearted—definitely an easier way to tackle the to-dos of the day!


As we saw in our Trend Friend interview with the amazing Sam of Happie Scrappie, her pages and projects are always divine!


Adorable doodles by Amanda Carter


Yes, it’s time to plan to plan! These pretty pages prove that getting organized can be fun!

    Hey, I think I love the planner. Never thought of buying one and decorating it and using it like you have. I have so many lists and this would really organize me, while being fun to do at the same time. I am so going to buy one. I love it. 🙂
