Paper Coterie Planners

I was destined to be a scrapbooker. Maybe its more accurate to say I was destined to be a historian. I have a slight obsession with recording things, and have proof that even from the time I was young I kept scrapbooks, lists, and notes of all kinds. Many years later, the passion to record my life is still alive and well, and continues to drive me to seek out journals and calendars of all kinds.

Here is my latest love from Paper Coterie.

Humbly called a planner, this 8×8 coilbound calendar is so much more. Its a calendar, it’s a journal, it’s a list, and a photo album. You’re getting to see mine fresh out of the box. I can almost not bear to make the first mark in it, but you know I will….soon.

I’m most comfortable using a monthly format, but a weekly format is also available if that works better for you. I’ll start mine this month, but since you fill it in, you can start this planner whenever you choose.

After each calendar page is what I think will be my favorite part of the planner…..I mean journal…..I mean calendar. These two pages have lined columns marked “to do list:” (with squares to check off….which really speaks to the geek in me), “favorite moments:”, “a funny thing happened:”, “10 things I am grateful for:”, and “ramblings:”. Off to the right is a column of graph paper for sketching. I love it all.

And then there’s the photo album part. Sprinkled throughout the planner are places to drag and drop the photos that make your heart melt. I found it easy and intuitive to add mine, change some to black and white, add text, or resize.

 

 

When it arrived, I was so pleased with the quality. The paper’s thick, the photos are sharp, the covers are sturdy, and the elastic band will hold it all together. Bottom line: it makes this list-making, photo-taking, history-recording, journal-loving scrapbooker happy.

And guess what.
