hey planner babes welcome back to according to Ally today we're switching up my wellness planner and starting to use this new squad goals vertical line planner I hope you enjoy [Applause] surprise I am in a new wellness planner for this week I have to admit I felt my wellness boo Jo to feel started feeling a little stale this week I just was doing the same thing over and over again and I needed to mix things up and it was a debate between this or starting my big wellness early and I thought this would be fun to use a vertical line planner as my wellness planner instead of the big I got to say tell you the big is intimidating so I went with this one grabbed this week of August 2020 because it matches up on the dates and I'm going with a fun summer spread to see how my wellness journaling will work in this planner and I'm excited to see how it turns out maybe it'll work maybe it won't but sometimes all I have to do is mix things up to get those creative juices flowing again and to feel like I'm getting a little bit more planner piece in my planner life if I try something new so we're of course going to use squad goals and squad life pack for this spread because it's a squad planner duh and everything matches perfectly it looks great together I love these blues and oranges together for the summer scream summer to me it's such a cute combo and I'm gonna use a bunch in this spread so I got this massive long list sticker it has to be the longest sticker of all time it's even longer than the box for the planner that is supposed to go in I don't understand that but it's terrifying to put on stickers so so long so scary gonna mess it up and not be able to peel it up so let's all hold our breath in nervous anticipation to see if I can do this the first time I gotta tell you it's because I did the long side and not the short side if you match long boxes up on the long side rather than the short side you'll nail it more often and I nailed that one yeah the cute little sunbae there girl lives through the week not being torn or wrinkled with having to be up then I saw the orange and blueish stickers in the center of the page that comes on the page and I thought of these cute stickers they are orangish and blueish and have that black center like the ones on the page and even though they don't match exactly I thought hey these kind of work so I snagged the two they look the same and match the page the most and they will become part of my layers for the week and my cute little clusters and layers on my wellness planner I'm really excited to try this also I find that one sign for me if I am NOT in planner piece is if I have no desire to use the planner sometimes it's personal like you're busy or whatever but other times you kind of feel like it's stale like it's like oh not again and the only planner I've never felt that way about is my classic vertical that I've always used these other planners sometimes I really have a hard time feeling like I really want to keep using them so to me again you just mix it up and that will help keep you interested so I decided to add a cute little treat to go with my sunbae there and of course bust out the white pen for that little spot of blue that the leaves are crossing over cute love it I like the combination of the flowers and the tropical in the spread and I love that orange and blue together I really draw I'm drawn to contrasting colors I don't know if you guys remember high school art class and that color wheel contrasting colors are the two colors that are on opposite sides of the color wheel so orange and blue are opposite yellow and purple red no wait yellow and purple yeah and green and red that's what it was our opposite sides of the color wheel so they kind of are the most contrast II they ones colors warm one colors cool and they can add a lot of interest and fun colourfulness to your spread and I'm drawn to them for sure in my planner not in fashion but in my planet so we'll layer this big barks ticker that I put at the bottom there again I used the I think for this week what I'll be doing is journaling my day in the top half and then note-taking the book I'm reading in the bottom half and I kind of am making a faux you know dividing line with stickers to show myself where the journaling stops in the note-taking starts um and we'll see how it looks filled out after the pen next week I don't know I might hate it I might love it I don't know I really don't know I just I'm excited to try a new planner it's funny because also my classic catch-all vertical that I use every year I have to start from beginning to end half do you have to have two I just do not like I just can't quit I can't quit you planner and I can't abandon it mid-year so I always stay in that one but my extra planners whatever they might be I do switch up I do get to try something new throughout the year because I just can't seem to find that same piece in my wellness planner / and then my other work / social media planner that I changed into a passion planner this week sometimes there's just itchin for a change and if you can't change other places change your planner huh so I'm really excited to try this planner and the different decorations and whatever that's going on let me know if you're also going to start this planner next month I wonder I always thought it was funny to the when people would grab the extra week from back the back of the planner and use it and I'm like what happens when you get to that one and then I had an epiphany this week and went yeah right like I'm ever gonna get to that in this planner I'll probably be buying a new one at the end of this year anyway so it won't really matter right I don't think I've ever seen anyone come have that problem if they sneak a week from the back of the planner that they actually get that far and then need it back but maybe I've never I've never done this actually ever I've never taken week and replaced it so we'll see if I rue this day later next year rue the day so I'll use the scraps from one of my little florals that looks like it's peeking out and put it over here two stickers become three I just love that there's so satisfying when you love your sticker so much might hoard some to multiply your stickers it's the best this red also came out so quick because of the squad girls squad life they are just so simple and so easy and if you have a sticker pack like farmhouse that goes with the planner I mean are these the easiest spreads you've ever done yes so I'm gonna add a little Sun Bay they're here over by the Flamingo and tree it's cute again this is an August page which is perfect because it's summer themed good thing the week didn't match the week in December and we have to deal with Christmas stuff on the page August and the summer vibes are perfect too for June and into going into July but I will come across these same pages again this August because they're the same but I don't mind they're cute so I'll just stick this at the beginning of July I really don't know where else to put it on those adorable pastel rainbow discs and as I was finishing here I realized oh my geez I did not cover up August in the left corner which I don't really need to do I know it's not August but it's another fun little spot to decorate so I'm going to take a piece of white paper it's just a little filler plain filler sheet from happy planner so it's the same kind of paper cut a little rectangle to cover up this August in the corner I just want to cover August not much of the months there so which there we go still covering the days of the week let so we'll use the tombow adhesive let me take this page out because it's a pain in the butt on the discs okay use the tombow adhesive roll it out there we go and then we'll stick it down and I'll overlap it on the top because it doesn't really matter and then I'll trim it down there it goes goodbye August 20 2004 Matt down perfection now I need to replace it with the month of June from the journaling oops I had a little bit of August sticking out so we'll use June from the journaling pack and of course some more cute stickers from here to use to decorate because they're the same colors and they're dorbz a cute little orange scallop will look perfect up here I could have just put you and I had to decorate right we'll take June mine or misprinted a little funny and there's a lot of white on the bottom so I'm just trimming around the J so it doesn't block down too much down into the month at-a-glance calendar there there it is cute and then for the summer vibes in the colors I'm using I decided to go with a couple of adorable seashells that totally match there we go with a little bit of gold we'll bring the blue up here and this pretty aqua minty color that's really hard to get off so I'll go for this one instead there we go even though it has that Sam color background around the sticker you can't really see it once it's on the white paper but there's Jun that's cute there we go much better how satisfying when it turns out perfect and I gotta say I absolutely love the numbers at the top of the page in this planner they matched the pages colors and the font are so cute I just adore it I would not want to cover it up even if I was using a different week that didn't fit so I hope you loved this spread as much as I do tune in next week and I'll be sure to show you and after the pen of my new wellness spread thank you so much for watching don't forget to Like and subscribe
