A Ladies Diary Planner

Front Cover


Hi everyone!
I'm back from vacation and ready to share my Planner Set DT project with you today by the The Cutting Cafe. I love working with Regina's cutting files and this one in particular grabbed my attention because I'm a gal that likes to be organized. I absolutely love that I can customize the file to suit my needs! The cutting file includes a PDF that you can easily print and cut and also features black and color text options.  

Are you ready for a few photos? ;) 
Here we go...

I used Graphic 45's A Ladies Diary collection to decorate the front and inside covers of my planner.

Outer Covers 

Close up of back cover

Note: I used a 2" 3-ring binder and I covered the outside covers using black chipboard as a base and adhering the G45 paper directly to it. I cut two pieces of chipboard, hole punched them and added vintage brads to secure. They are held in place with X-press It double sided tape which is strong enough to secure the panels yet if I want to change them I can. 

Inside front left cover and spine 
(I love the ephemera sheets in this collection and used several throughout)

Inside back cover 

Regina offers 6 different styles of Assorted Covers in the Planner Set


A close up of the months tabs. 
(There are pocket pages with tabs which are included and you'll see on my next planner)

Personal Information page

Important Numbers page

There's a full month calendar for each month plus two yearly calendars.


This is the format for the calendar pages.

This is another of the many organizational pages in this Planner Set.

Another helpful page to stay organized. 
(I could keep showing you pages but I'll save some for next week)

The remaining pages are the pocket pages which I created myself and I added the printed month tabs (from the file). 

You might want to grab a cuppa because there are MORE photos. ;)

Whew!!! Did you make it to the end? Hope so. :)

For the base of  my pocket pages I used Prima's ledger 12 x 12 paper pad and every edge was distressed with Tim Holtz's gathered twigs distress ink. I love the warmth this color adds to my pages!
