Filofax: How I Set-up my Filofax Planner

Here's a YouTube video on a little tour of my Filofax Planner- including how I set it up and organize everything in my life.  The video gives you a glimpse of how everything fits together to fit my lifestyle.  Remember everything is customized and made by me.   I am happy to answer any questions if you have any!

Filofax: How I decorate Wk. 29 Heidi Swapp

week29 Filofax planning pages Heidi Swapp

This week's Filofax pages have to be my ultimate favorite layout that I have created since I started my planner.  My main inspiration was the Heidi Swapp Sugar Chic Paper Pack.  As soon as I saw this collection I just had to have it.  I knew that I wanted to make the designs part of my Filofax so I made dividers using some of the papers (more detailed info later).  Because I loved the designs so much I bought 3 packs just in case it was discontinued.  Thank goodness I found that at my local Michael's on sale for $9.99 (it was so hard to find it online).  Don't you just love this pack? Gah! LOVE LOVE!!!!!! I am always drawn to Heidi's sense of style maybe because it's very similar to mine - fun, sassy and oh so trendy!

Here are some more pictures of the layout

Products used for the layout:

  • Heidi Swapp Sugar Chic Paper Pack
  • Studio L2E Plan It and List It Stamps
  • Washi Tapes from Willow & Washi on Etsy
  • Washi Tape Glitter/Solid circle stickers DIY Project. Made with a hole punch
Heidi Swapp Dashboard

Just a little glance of my dashboard for the summer.  I tagged Heidi on this on Instagram and she commented! Total fan girl moment. The glitter vinyl heart is on a tranparency and the leopard print is from the Sugar Chic Paper Pack.  Oh, and the lipstick! Candy Yum Yum from MAC.  :)

Filofax: Week 25 Pages Polkadot


I am loving this week's Filofax planning page layout (Kate Spade inspired), maybe because I had so many new things to design the 2 page spread! This layout is very different from the layout that I used last week and I am thinking this is the one to stick keep.  I've seen this type of layout used by a few Filofaxers so I decided to make my own through Microsoft Publisher. Super easy! Lots of space to stamp, add post-its, little notes, color, etc.


  • Studio L2E Plan It and List It Stamps
  • Kate Spade Paperclips
  • Polka-dot washi tape from Michaels
  • Clear TODAY divider from Heidi Swapp  (this was part of a pack, they are a little short, but too cute not to use).
  • Journal Cards - I made these myself with quotes I found on Pinterest
  • 3x4 journal card protector hole punched to fit the Filofax and added a strip of washi tape for personality.
