Guest Designer - Jennifer Pohl - Planner Perfection!


So excited to welcome Jennifer Pohl as a guest designer today with a focus on Planners.  Jen was our blog coordinator for 3 years and got SRM into blogging, Facebook and social media big time.  She is an incredible crafter and now she's turned her focus on Planners. She's simply wild about all things planners and SRM has so many products that are planner perfect!  Check them out HERE! We will be seeing more of Jen from time to time, sharing her planner goodness with us. 

And if you leave a comment on the blog today you will be in the running for winning the stash that Jennifer used on her planner….just in time for your October pages!


Now let's hear from Jen in her own words….

Hello everyone, I’m Jennifer Pohl and I’m thrilled to be on the SRM blog today!  SRM stickers have been a part of my life for *years*.  They are the perfect product for party favors, birthday designs, gifting, and now --- planners!  I’m absolutely addicted to my planner; it’s a lifeline for all that’s important to me.  It helps me stay focused, organized, and assists me in staying on track with my life goals.  It’s so much more than a date keeper.
  
It’s not my nature to just jot down appointments and events on paper – I need to be creative.  I need to make it pretty.  I need to look at my planner every morning and feel motivated.  Today I’m featuring my October layout.  My objectives for October are;
  • Take lots of fun photos of my children enjoying the events of the month
  • Continue to try new recipes and record them on recipe cards that I can refer to in the future
  • Be on time, and not let anything “fall through the cracks” as it’s sure to be a busy month
October’s layout is all about Halloween, my family’s favorite holiday.  I’ve decorated the month with SRM Stickers but left plenty of room for jotting-down important information.

I inserted an embellished pocket to store backpack notes for my girls.  



(I’ve been tucking notes for years and my girls look forward to seeing a little something from mom.  They’ve kept every note throughout the years!)

I got ahead of the game by premaking little inspiring tags using SRM’s Labels by the Dozen’ and ‘Live Life’ school stickers.

Also tucked into October is a glassine envelope containing recipe cards – all decorated with SRM’s Cookin’ stickers.  I’m on a mission to try new recipes and memorialize my family’s favorites each month.  

By the end of 2015 I should have a collection to help me head into 2016 with lots of dinner options.


The last October insert is a clear pocket for photos.  Lots and lots of photos!  We’re planning a trip to the pumpkin patch, haunted house, and we’ll be attending a costume party… So many opportunities for pictures.  I needed something special to hold them until I could scrapbook them, so I fancied a banner using SRM’s Halloween stickers.


Thanks for stopping by! I hope you enjoyed a peek into my planner.  Be sure to share your planner ideas on SRM's Flickr.  We'd love to see what you do!  And don't forget to comment for a change to winner some planner goodness from SRM!

Papertangler…. Jen says "I attach lose items using coil connectors that Erin condren sells. They're pretty nifty."
