Filofax Chameleon A5 Black :: Clothes Inspired

This week, I am using my Filofax Chameleon A5 Black and the decoration is inspired by clothes. I love buying new clothes but I do not enjoy doing the laundry. But whether I like it or not, its a task that has to be done. There is no choice! I dont iron my clothes either. My sweet husband has kindly accepted to iron my clothes along with his own. How sweet!! ;) But I absolutely love folding clothes. I find it so relaxing :)

Here are a few photos of my pages:

Filofax A5 Chameleon in Black :: Zebra Inspired

This week, I decorated my planner pages inspired by the beautiful animal Zebra. I love the pattern on their body. It is such an eye catching pattern that has increasingly gained popularity in fashion, stationery and many other industries.

When I look at Zebras and their Black & White patterned body, I think of honesty; being Black & White. I like to be Black & White about my thoughts, my opinion etc. It leaves no room for confusion. I picked a lovely quote on "Truth" by Mahatma Gandhi for this week.

Here are some photos of my decorated pages:

Planning :: My Top 7 Planning Must Haves

Today, I wanted to share with you all my top seven planning essentials. These are the items that I use in my everyday planning.






Here is a list of the seven staple items that I use:

1 :: A Craft Mat
It is great when you are cutting and pasting stuff. You can keep your craft table and planner
scratch proof too.  I have a big craft mat and I don't start my planning until I lay the mat for protection. 

2 :: Sticky Notes and Sticky Tabs
I use these all the time for extra notes, making lists and of course for decoration.

3 :: Hole Punch
This tiny little tool comes in handy when the washi tape overlaps the hole and you have to re-punch the pages.

4 :: Adhesive
The sticky notes and sticky tabs don't adhere well at times. Some sort of adhesive is always good to have on hand.

5 :: Pens
We all planner addicts love our pens and I am no exception. For my planning, I use only the pens I bought from Jetpens. These are the Pilot Frixion Erasable Pens 0.7mm, Pilot Frixion Erasable Markers, Pilot Frixion Erasable Ball Slim 0.38mm. Because these pens are all erasable, I don't worry if I make errors. Also they don't bleed. I love these pens! Specially the Pilot Frixion Erasable Markers and Pilot Frixion Erasable Ball Slim 0.38mm.

6 :: Scissors or Cutting Knife
I use small scissors or cutting knife mainly to cut the washi tapes to size. Sometimes I use scissors to cut horizontal sticky notes into a particular shape.

7 :: Washi Tape
Last but not least. My favourite accessory of all times. I am severely addicted to washi tapes. I use washi tapes in every single page of my planner decoration. Its official now, that I cannot plan without Washi Tapes ;D

You would have seen a lot of stickers in my decorated planner pages. Honestly, I can manage quite well without stickers. That is why stickers are not on the list. Here is an example of pages decorated without any stickers.

What are your planning must haves? I would love to hear from you.

Hope you enjoyed this post. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask.

Have a wonderful day!

Filofax Original Pink Fluoro A5 :: Dogs Inspired

This week I decided to use Dogs as inspiration to decorate my planner pages. I adore dogs! I have never had dogs or any other pets ever. I would love to have a dog or may be two dogs some day... very soon. May be a Beagle or a Labrador or a German Shepherd or a Jack Russell. I hope my hubby is reading this ;)

When I think of unconditional love, I think of two living beings; Dogs and My Parents. I know that sounds a bit strange but I am actually talking about the common quality of "Selfless Love" that Dogs and Parents share. They shower their love so unconditionally that it is hard to believe how selfless god made them. It is my mum's birthday on Sunday the 6th of April. I dedicate these pages to my mum; the best mum I could ever ask for and you too dad.

Happy Birthday Mum!!
