DD’s Planner

I saw the video for this planner on You Tube. It’s another of the Kathy Orta creations. I had a deep desire to build it but did not want to own a planner so I created it for Darling Daughter.

So here is my version of the planner.


I wanted a month at a glance so I made a slide in frame for the little calendar I bought in the 1$ section of Michaels. The calendar is made of a heavy enough paper it slides in and the post it tabs is glued half way so the second page can slide in and out. I tried fastening it but it needs to move to much.


You can see the top tab on this page. There are four different symbols so it can be easier to find where you need to be.


The page on the left is a expanded envelope that loads from the top.


Two pages of business card storage.


DD asked for places for business cards so I came up with this using pretty paperclips for extra support.


I was going to attach the year calendar on the inside cover but decided it would get to worn there and just slipped it in the pocket.


I used an elastic band to hold the paper pad in the book.


The Paper is from The Paper Studio’s Tattered and Worn paper stack. The back cover from Our Family Tree also The Paper Studio. I bought a set of The Paper Studio’s inspirational stickers for the inside of the book.

I used assorted glues and tapes, but want to make sure no one else buys the little 3 $ on sale pack I bought. I would never buy it again. You get what you pay for was very true in this case. I’ve bought Recollections stuff often at Michaels so was very surprised at the quality.



I got two figuring my grandson could use the other glues and I’d use the adhesive tape roller. Big mistake. Both rollers broke inside.

Done with my rant for the day.

I’m trying to find a place to get scor tape without breaking the bank. I used hot glue attaching the back cover to the book and did not add the pocket that was shown in the Kathy Orta video. It has so much storage I honestly just didn’t want to bother. My DD will be using a giant rubber band to hold the book closed. I and my Grandson use the giant rubber bands on our tablets and really like them.
