Getting Started with Your Everyday Life™ Planner

The New Year has arrived! That means you can finally start using your planner and the rest of your Everyday Life items you’ve been so excited about! Since these products are new to everyone, we thought we’d give you some tips on how to use them.Get started using your Everyday Life™ Planner! #ctmh #closetomyheart #everydaylife #planner #2016

It’s a beautiful week, thanks to the stickers that come with your planner pages! We designed them for organization optimization!

First you have the round ones with helpful little icons to place next to tasks on your to-do list—don’t you just love that little gold present? These are great for helping you see at a glance what type of event you are looking at while simultaneously adding a splash of color!

Then there are the rectangular stickers, which you can stamp with the Everyday Life Perfect Plan roller stamp to further color-code your pages. For instance, you’ll notice here that we stamped “PAY DAY!” on a green label so it coordinates with the green dollar sticker.

But maybe you’d prefer to arrange your colors a little differently. Well, thanks to our roller stamp, you can! You can stamp any of its twelve words, phrases, and images onto any stickers you’d like to create your very own personalized system. Here are some tips for stamping onto the stickers:

  • Practice stamping on a scratch piece of paper beforehand so you get a feel for the roller stamp.
  • Start with the stamp leaning slightly toward you. Roll slightly away from you to make sure the whole image gets stamped onto the sticker.
  • It’s okay to go slowly, but be careful not to slide the stamp since that can smear your image.
  • Use the metal guides on the edges of the roller stamp to help with placement of the stamp image.

Last but not least are the fun little flag stickers that complete the sticker set. We really love these because they can be used horizontally or vertically, as you can see on this calendar. That’s what’s great about the entire Everyday Life line—you can use the products in whichever way makes the most sense to you for your everyday life!

Ready to organize your year? Then enjoy getting to know the Everyday Life planner system, and let it work wonders for your life!

Plan Ahead!

Raise your hand if you have used planners for years and cannot imagine life without them. Now, let’s see a show of hands from those of you who may think you’re not “the planner type.” But are you actually the planner type? Answer these questions to find out! Are you a visual learner who loves to see your days laid out in front of you? Are you someone who can’t remember anything unless you physically write it down? Or are you a loyalist who prefers the purity of paper over electronics?

If you answered “yes” to even one of these questions, then get excited. Why? Because, as we announced at Brisbane Convention, we have created our own planner that we’ll be making available for order later this month! Take a look!

Check out this beautiful, customizable planner! #ctmh #closetomyheart #2016planner #organization #papercrafting

First, get your hands on our adorable three-ringed Everyday Life™ album. Its black cover with a gold foil floral design is sure to be the envy of all your friends. Then grab the Everyday Life™ 2016 planner pages, which include weekly and monthly spreads to help you focus in on the daily details but also remember your plans for the entire month. The planner pages also include four sheets of colorful label stickers, 12 trendy monthly dividers with tabs, and a bookmark-style page finder to help you turn quickly to the current day. To help you store receipts, fliers, and more, there’s also a pocket folder page. Is that organized or what?

Personalize your pages even more with the Everyday Life™ Perfect Plan roller stamp, which has phrases like “shopping list,” “no school,” and “don’t forget.” We’ve designed this roller stamp to coordinate with the label stickers; simply place the label sticker in your planner, and then stamp the phrase of your choice onto it. With several colors to choose from, you can color coordinate your reminders for organization perfection!

So pull out your current planner, family calendar, or even a Post-It note, and write this down: order the Close To My Heart planner as soon as it is available, later in November. We know this is a reminder you’ll appreciate all year long!
