Filofax Decoration, Week 45

It’s November and we only have 8 weeks left of 2013!  The last two months have totally flown by for me…in a good way! 🙂

 

Anyway, happy November to you all!  Here are my pages for week 45:IMG_6288Super simple with fall colors.

I tried stamping at the top with a new bronze ink I bought at AC Moore over the weekend.  It’s very glittery and pretty, but not particularly a saturated color.  I can think of a lot of fun projects to use the color on, but it doesn’t quite work on the FF pages!  I ended up tracing the word ‘Remember’ in black ink just so I could read it.

Filofax, Week 43 Decoration PLUS a Video PLUS a Freebie!

I’ve been gone.

But now I’m back.  And to make up for my unplanned absence, I’m bringing  you THREE bits of awesome this morning.

First, my weekly pages:

FF WK 43.1

I wanted to use some nice, neutral colors this week.  I chose polka dot gray and warm yellow washi tapes, plus brown ink to decorate.

FF WK 43.2

Last weekend, I managed to print a little check list for each day of the week directly onto the pages.  It’s not perfect, but it’s close.  The video explains a bit more about why I’ve done this, but essentially, I wanted all my to do lists, cleaning schedules, etc. to be in ONE section, not split across multiple sections.

FF WK 43.3

FF WK 43.4The cute blue magnetic clip was from a RAK!  I love it!

Second, a video!  I totally changed my Filofax around again, so of course I had to make a video showing you all the fun newness.  Here ya go:

Third, and finally, a freebie!  You can download the journal page I created and print it for yourself!  You can print it on blank personal sized Filofax pages OR on regular size printer paper and trim it to fit.  When you print, make sure you change your settings for the personal size paper (3.75 x 6.75″).  Feel free to customize it for your own Filofax(es) and/or share it on your blog, too.  Just be sure to post a link back to this blog entry so people know where it’s from originally.  Click the link below to download it 🙂

Filofax, Week 40 Decoration + October Monthly + Video!

I have a little extra to share with you today!  This is week 40, so I have my decorated weekly pages, but it’s also the beginning of October on Tuesday, so I have my month on two pages decoration to show you.  PLUS I filmed a video of my updated Filofax set up, so I’m sharing that, too.

Let’s start with the weekly pages:

FF WK 40.1The full page spread.  I added a dividing line in the middle of each day and am planning to add notes about dinner and my blogging schedule over there.  The lines and boxes will be for daily ‘to do’ notes.

FF WK 40.2I put a big sticky for a bill due date so hopefully I won’t forget this month!!

FF WK 40.3Washi at the top as a banner, across the middle, and along the bottom are all fall colors.  I love the warm and cozy feel those colors evoke!

Now on to the monthly pages for October:

FF Oct Month 4The full spread.  I used washi along the left edge and the bottom to frame things, plus a little washi banner and star on the top right.

FF Oct Month 2My washi bunny!  This was so simple and I love how it turned out.  All I did was trace my large bunny paper clip onto white cardstock.  I used a thin blue washi tape to completely cover over the traced outline, then I just cut out the shape along the traced lines!  I stuck him in the bottom right corner to help cover up the non-October days at the bottom.  You could do this with any shape you’re able to cut out!  Link up in the comments if you try it–I’d love to see your versions!

FF Oct Month 3  A close up of the top left where I used an Amy Tangerine sticker that matched well with the chevron washi tape.

And here’s the update video!

Are you Filofax-ed out yet? 😉  Thanks for stopping by!
