Filofax Decoration: Travel Planner

In the midst of wedding planning I thought it'd be really useful to set up a travel Filofax to take on our mini-moon to the New Forest and for our honeymoon to Rhodes. I bought a Pennybridge personal purple Filofax for this very reason and to me, it's the perfect choice for a travel planner.

It's zipped so it can hold all of those important travel documents without them falling out, which is perfect when you're a panicky traveller like me. And of course, it's purple, so it has to win, really.
So my plan for my travel Filofax is simple: sunshine, fun and holiday themed. I didn't want your usual plane-themed paper and sand castles and buckets and spades, I wanted something feminine and soft, and the Ocean Melody collection by Websters Pages was perfect.

Teamed with aqua and coral washi tape, kraft journaling cards (Pinterest printable) and cute vintage postcards, it's perfect for me on my travels and reminds me of the colours of Rhodes. The anchor pen is from Paperchase. I've printed our schedules, flight times, hotel information etc. on personal sized Filofax paper, the perfect companion for travelling with.

Of course once it's all set up I'll do another blog post, but for now maybe this has sparked your imagination (or your wanderlust!)

Filofax Decoration: Everyday Planner

Long time no speak, how is everyone!

Well we are in the midst of the wedding planning chaos and I decided that my personal Finsbury was just not working for me. It wouldn't lie flat which was really annoying me, and I started to wish I'd never sold my grape domino. Low and behold... I was sent one by a lovely lady and am so far in my first week really getting along with it again. I'm not sure if it's quite the grape colour I had before but it's definitely close enough.

Just a few pictures of my favourite things at the moment - Filofax Domino, Kindle and my heatable owl <3
Anyway, today I'm talking about my plans for decoration for my Domino! Although I've started using her this week she's not decorated at all really. It's something I enjoy doing and find it helps me with my enthusiasm to use my Filofax if it looks nice.
These are my pages from this week, super busy due to wedding plans. An absolute essential writing things down at the moment, my mind is all over the place.
 You'll notice I've diverted from the Organised Mum inserts which I used to love. I purchased a pack for 2015 and well.. firstly they'd not sent me the page for week commencing 23rd March (great choice of date by the way, this is when our honeymoon is...) secondly, when I first used the inserts in my Finsbury the holes seemed like they weren't punched in the right place but I thought it might have just been the rings. Then I put them in my Domino and had the same issue! Not impressed at all.
So I've gone back to cotton cream week on two pages and I actually really like it this time round.
So my decoration plans for my personal Domino... enter moodboard (come on, you know me, how else?!) I introduce you to Wildflower!

The paper, stickers and journaling cards are from Carta Bella's Wildflower scrapbook collection. I love the woodland theme and the lovely colours in this collection. Not too bright, but cheerful enough. I love the deer washi tape as well. (Going on my wishlist!)
I'm currently on a No Spend February so I can't buy anything yet, but I do have the stickers from this collection already so I might try something out with those first.
