Plan With Me | Spring Garden

Hello, Planner Friends!

While the Northern part of the world is gearing up for Winter, here in the Southern Hemisphere, we’re bracing for Summer, which has sporadically stuck it’s head out a few times only to retreat behind some Spring rains. Which makes for a difficult time predicting weather, but I love Spring rains so I don’t mind too much.

It’s also the time of year when I really think about gardening. I don’t have too big a garden – just a lot of plants on my balcony – but it’s nice seeing them come into flower after Winter.

As a result, I’ve had a lot of Spring-themed planner layouts recently, and they make me so happy!

This week I used the English Garden sticker bundle by Mrs Brimbles to create a fun, horizontal layout. The kit has stickers that would work for both horizontal and vertical layouts, but I really wanted to play with the illustration stickers this week, and this is the result.

For the full process, check out this video:

It’s been a while since I played with a LOT of coloured washi tapes and I have to say, it was a lot of fun and I really enjoyed it. There’s nothing like pops of colour to really brighten your day. I find it impossible not to look at this layout without smiling, because everything about it is so cheerful, and that’s exactly what I need at this time of year when everything starts to get hectic in the lead-up to the holidays.

I wish I could say I had a formula to where I placed the stickers, but I honestly don’t (and I’m pretty sure I break a lot of design rules, too… but hey, rules are meant to be broken, right?). I just wanted to make sure I not only had a pretty layout, but a functional one, too, with plenty of room for my to-dos and upcoming events.

My horizontal layouts always have eight boxes – the eight being for a ‘notes’ section. Which in my layouts is always more decorative than ‘notes’ (because that’s just how I roll!), and it’s position in my layout tends to fluctuate depending on how much space I need.

So this week it’s in the middle of the week and I really don’t mind that!

I hope that wherever you are, you are being inspired and living your best life, and that your planner helps you to do that.

If you’re looking for more planner inspiration, I post planner videos every week on my Youtube channel.

Happy planning, friends!
