Kikki-K Planner :: Ballerina Girls Inspired

This week I am using my Kikki-K Mint and Gold Polka Dot Planner in the Large size. My birthday happens to be this week and I was thinking of a theme that I absolutely love. I wanted to make this week's pages special for obvious reasons and decided to go ahead with the Ballerina Girls theme. I knew that I wanted to do this theme for my birthday week. But there was a problem. I had no stickers, no paperclips to match the cute Ballerina Girls theme. So I decided to find the solution to my problem, be a little creative and make my own cute stationery from the supplies I had. I came up with a DIY Bookmark (Click here to see How-To Tutorial) and also made some Paper Clips. I punched some pattern paper and sticky notes using a floral punch that I bought from DAISO. I still thought there was something missing....The Stickers. Well I didn't have any Ballerina Girls stickers. Therefore I went ahead illustrated the Ballerina Girls on my Planner pages. I love illustrating!
And that beautiful quote by George Burns on that page- it is there specially for my birthday ;)

Here are some photos.

  1. Hi Malini,
    Tell me how the idea begin to make your dairy? And how many dairy did you have? I like all of you design so wonderful .. good luck


    1. Hi Aysha,

      Thank you for stopping by. I was looking at ways to stay organised but also have some fun decorating and colour coding stuff. So started researching. That is when I discovered that there is something called Filofax. This was back in May2013 I believe. before that I never owned a planner. So bought one Filofax in A5 size and started sort of collecting. I have around 15 planners in total to-date. I don't intend to buy anymore planners at this stage. However this addiction can be pretty bad. :) .. Hope I have answered your questions. Thanks again.



  2. is there a place to get cheaper filofax planners?

    1. Hi, I am sorry but I don't know of any such places or sites where you could buy them at a cheaper rate. Sorry!

  3. Hi, this is very beautiful. I just made a blogpost showing my kikki.K planner as well :)

    1. Thanks a lot Helen. I will visit your blog soon :)

  4. I love your planner, it's sooooo beautiful! I would enjoy looking at a planner like yours every day. :) My planner is a work in progress at the moment; can you post more info on the beautiful Japanese Doll items you had in your December 15th post? I would like to order them, but am having a problem finding them on Amazon...great blog, am adding you to my favorites ~~~

    1. Hi there

      Thank you so much for appreciating my blog, stopping by and for commenting. The japanese doll sticky notes were from Amazon but may have sold out. The magnetic bookmarks and the sticky notes are both by the brand "Galison". Check out their website. You should be able to order from their website. I just checked and they have it in stock. Hope this helps. :)

    2. Thank you so much Malini! *happy dance* You have wonderful taste and I am inspired by your talent. Thank you again! :)

    3. Aww thanks a ton! I am glad I could be of some help. Hope you can find the items on that website. Cheers, Malini
