2016 Planners

I'm popping in to share a project I'm currently working on and am really excited about. I'm spending most of my time these days finishing up the release of my weekly planners for 2016. I've been designing them for the last couple of months and I can't wait to put them out into the world.

Everyone who contacted me after purchasing one last year have been really pleased with the simplicity of the pages (and luxurious recycled heavy paper), so I kept the insides the same for this year. I went extra creative with the covers this time though, as I thought some of you who purchased my planner for 2015 might want something different to carry in the their bag next year. I went crazy with watercolors and just experimented with textures and brush strokes for a couple of days in a row and then chose my two favorite abstract patterns for the covers (you can see one of them above). I got the covers professionally printed by an environmentally friendly printing studio located in Estonia. They've done such a good job, I was almost jumping with joy when I first opened the box with the ready prints. They look so pretty printed on beautiful recycled brown cardboard!

Last year I had many requests for a planner in larger size, which is why this year I made them in two sizes: large and small (A5 and A6). The large one will have even more space for planning, making lists or just doodling and having fun with it. It also features dates printed in beautiful large font, which makes it look really cool and stylish. The smaller planner still has plenty of space to write in due to its minimalist design, plus it is compact enough to fit into any bag.

This year I also added "at a glance" pages for the whole year 2016 and 2017, so you can plan ahead or just check the dates whenever you need to. There are also few lined pages in the back of the planner for general notes. The whole planner will be hand bound with my favorite open binding technique, which enables the books to open flat for extra convenient writing.

To be honest, I can't wait to get my hands on this planner myself. I have to decide whether I want to use larger or smaller size though. I promise I'll show you more photos soon, once I finished binding and photographing the first batch. They will be available for ordering later this month.
