Create A Planner Dashboard

This new wave of Planner Fever has me in its grip. 
I've always been a planning, goal-setting, list-making kind of gal, BUT boy-howdy has it gone wild!
My online, digital calendar, and note-taking apps were not cutting it for me anymore so...

I ran out to buy the perfect planner. Oh, wait...that doesn't exist. My gal pal Lorri mentioned the Traveler's Notebook, great idea; yet I wanted it more personal. Yep, I needed to make my own.

The Dashboard was a great creative planner idea:

A Dashboard is just a way to hold your place with tabs or as a post it note holder or just to look cool.

I used:
Clean, flat, waste plastic cut to fit
Stencil  
Dixie Belle Paint  
Stretchy elastic cording
Grommets

I cut the plastic to 4"x8" for my planner and rounded the corners:


I placed the stencil over the plastic and sponge painted the Dixie Belle Chalk Paint over it. Let dry.


Then I used a contrasting color over the entire piece.



I placed the solid colored sides together and used grommets to fasten.


Then I used the cording to create a band for inside my notebook.


There you go. I can't wait to create even more inserts for my planner. Stay tuned...

Please let us know what planner set up you use.
Ciao for now,
-Trish Alger
