Anatomy of a Storyline Chapters Planner Page
Today for this Storyline Chapters Planner post I want to share with you what I call the Anatomy of a Monthly Highlights Page.
Heidi Swapp Storyline Chapters Planner Inserts includes two inserts of weekly pages. Each insert has 26 weeks. Therefore that makes 2 books that will equal a year of weekly pages.
But wait. There’s more. The third insert is the Month/Goals book. This part of the planner books includes a year of monthly page spreads. Just like a classic planner or calendar, there are twelve two-page spreads for a month-at-a-glance. This is a great space to take a look at my month. Plan out my to-dos. But also to record my ‘this is what happened’.
Turn the page, and there is this bonus page…a sort of highlights page look at the month. This page provides plenty of space for all kinds of notes, events, and things to remember. It’s a sort of blank page. But I have a couple of ideas on how to use this ‘blank page’ inside the Months insert.
For this left side page, there is a column numbered from 1-31. I have designated that as my ‘thankful’ column. I already have a daily habit of writing 5 gratitudes down a day. I like this column for a bit more of a visual look at these gifts in my life in my planner.
The top of the page is embellished with a sticker cluster. Right below is a great space of the page. It would make a great place for a monthly bucket list. Right now I am using that spot a little differently from month to month. Here for February I wrote down several quotes from my reading that I came across in the month. I wanted to remember them and give them a home in my planner insert.
The rest of the boxed spaces are pretty self explanatory. I wrote in significant events under the Events heading. A larger quote under the Remember heading. And then of course Goals for the month under the Goals heading. I love having these spaces in a consistent place from month to month.
The next page is wide open. It has pre-marked boxes too. But no real title except at the top (where I covered with that Write This Down Sticker) it says Highlights.
Well, for this highlights page, I used the journal spots to write in the stories I want to tell from the month. I love this as a sort of running list. A place to start some journaling. As well as a go-to spot from month to month that records the stories I want to tell in my Chapters Scrapbook Insert. Then I had fun with it by adding little titles to each of the boxes. I used Alpha Stickers and Stamps plus my own hand lettering. Clear stickers made for great titles as well as Die Cut Flower Stickers from the Planner Stickers, and of course Washi Tape with more Color Fresh Stickers. This may be my new favorite space for story telling.
And that is what I call an Anatomy of a Storyline Chapters Planner Page.
Here’s to filling up those Planner pages. Here’s to writing down a daily gratitude. Recording motivational quotes. And filling spaces with our stories we don’t want to forget.
