CTMH Planners gotta Plan

Hi there, Connie Nichol here today trying to get organized! It’s a great New Year’s resolution!!  I am going to try using a planner to organize my time in 2016 and feel like I am taking control of my hectic days.   I want to show you the beautiful new planner from Close to My Heart.


The planner has beautiful vibrant colours and provides  lots of space to write lists, notes and details.  I love the black cover with the gold embossed image and wanted the inside of my planner to look extra pretty so I customized some of the pages with some  CTMH stamps and My Crush embellishments.


This soccer stamp set is a very useful set for the soccer mom!

Not only is it a great planner, but what I really like is that you can customize it by adding mini scrapbooking pages. Close to My Heart has designed special page protectors to fit the planner binder – these Memory Protectors come either with four 4″ x 3″ side-loading pockets or with two 4″ x 6″ side-loading pockets.  Easy to slip in a photo and some journalling.  Or you can purchase these nifty MyCrush Everyday Life pages, scrapbook directly on them and insert them into your planner.  I love the idea of my planner holding pictures and journalling in addition to the details of everyday appointments, grocery lists and activities.  Talk about a year in review.

You can also scrapbook on the cardstock monthly divider between each month.  Add a photo and some stamped embellishments to create a quick page – it will certainly bring a smile to your face as you flip through your year.  Bring on 2016.  Happy New Year!

    Great inspiration! I was looking at this planner in the new CTMH mini catalog. I have never used planners, but as a memory log of the year? Hmmm…
