Here’s a quick look at some of the goodies I received from the 2016 Day Designer for Blue Sky collection. This year, the designs have been updated, there are new accessories, and the addition of the Today & To-Do planner. Keep reading for specifics on each product!
This is the Day Designer for Blue Sky Daily Planner. This planner is dated from July 2016-June 2017 (as they all are). The Daily Planner is as true to the original Day Designer layout as it gets. And that Spotty Dot cover design is absolutely gorgeous, isn’t it? (It’s my favorite!) Let’s take a look inside…
Inside each planner, you will find this “How to Use This Planner” page, followed by a few others that encourage you to set goals, design your days, etc.
The monthly spread is across two pages and contains lined boxes for each day. There’s also a space to jot down notes for each month as well. You can also get a good look at the tabs for each month in this photo.
In the Daily Planner, you get a full page for each day of the week. On each page, you will find an hourly breakdown to plan out your day (times range from 6 AM-8 PM), a section to write your top three tasks, a to-do list with check boxes, a section for notes, a “Tonight” section, plus space to write what you’re grateful for. You will also find a quote on each page as well.
The weekend page combines Saturday and Sunday in one page. It gives you space to write down fun things to do, weekly gratitude, an hourly layout for both days, and space for next week’s tasks.
If the daily planner is a bit too much for you, you can go with a slimmer version by choosing the Weekly/Monthly 8.5 x 11 Planner.
With this weekly version, you will see that an entire week spreads across two pages. Each day has a section for “Today’s Schedule,” as well as a to-do list with check boxes. At the bottom left, you will find space for your top three tasks of the week, plus a quote. On the bottom right, there’s a section for notes and gratitude. In this planner, Saturday and Sunday share a row. There are no hourly breakdowns for the days in this planner. (The monthly spread is the same as in the Daily Planner, which is shown previously.)
For a compact planner you could easily slip into your handbag and take with you wherever you go, try this smaller Weekly/Monthly Planner Notes design.
The spread in this style is completely different from the previous two, but it does provide the hourly breakdown for each day. A week is spread across two pages, but is presented vertically. You’ll find a “Today’s Top Three” section with check boxes for each day, the hourly breakdown, then a blank box for “Tonight.”
The Today & To Do isn’t as structured as the previous planners because it’s actually not dated. While the planner is designed to be used from July 2016-June 2017, the weekly and daily pages aren’t dated, so you can use it as you please. Here’s how it looks inside:
The monthly spread is across two pages, with plenty of room to jot down important events for each day. There’s also a section for to-dos and notes over on the left-hand side.
As you can see with this weekly spread, there aren’t any dates. As mentioned before, you can easily pick up this planner and use it whenever you feel like it. It’s perfect for someone who isn’t a regular planner, but would like to have the option for particularly busy weeks or days. There is not an hourly breakdown on the weekly spreads, however there’s plenty of room to write your schedule and to-dos.
The daily spread does contain an hourly breakdown, space for to-do lists, and more. Again, you’ll notice these pages aren’t dated so you can use them as you please.
There’s even a Wall Calendar if you’re looking for something to display in your office. On the right-hand side, you will also find check box sections for projects and to-dos, plus space for writing notes.
If you’re looking for some pretty accessories to aid in your planning, there are some new editions with this latest Day Designer for Blue Sky collection. You can snag a pack of eight pencils (four designs with two of each design), three lovely rolls of Washi tape for decorating your pages, and a gorgeous floral pen. I’m definitely excited to start using these in my planning. (The pen has already become one of my favorites!)
There are even more designs to check out in this collection, so be sure to head over to Blue Sky’s website to view everything.
