Update: New Filofax, Dividers & Ideas

I seem to be trying lots of new things at the moment, just trying to get everything right, how it works for me. I purchased my dream Filofax on Adspot this week, a lovely pocket domino baroque in brown. I received it yesterday and she's already got a set of new dividers, although I'm not sure I'll be keeping them, I want something a bit different.

Here is my lovely new Filofax. She's a lot more sturdy than my other dominos, and smells beautiful. She looks just like something from a fairytale, which is where I got the inspiration for the dividers.

New dividers, made from my stash of DCWV Once Upon A Time collection paper:
What I would really like is something along the lines of this, but these are book covers from Paperblanks. I love these colours, and the olde worlde theme.
 My front page is from a piece of scrapbook paper:
So, what are my new ideas?
Well... although my new diary format is working for me, I don't really want to spend my spare time printing pages for my diary, I want to be decorating in them, writing in them, making them beautiful and memorable, keepsakes for years to come.
So I've used the idea as given my Steve Morton on his Youtube video and decided to buy a week to view Moleskine which I will hack to fit into my pocket Filofax. All I will need to do is trim the pages from the book, punch the pages, and make some dividers the same size.
This is the layout I'm thinking of, it has a week to view on one side and a lined page the opposite side, perfect for journaling and decorating as I wish.
I love the modern and uncomplicated design of Moleskine pages, and I've seen some wonderful examples of how people use these as daily planners:
This last one is probably my favourite. I'm always seeing things in magazines and keeping clothing tags that I like, but never have anywhere to put them. I'm quite a sentimental person (or a womble, if you will).
I will update you once I've purchased my Moleskine and set up my Filofax!
