Minimalistic Christmas / Holiday Planner

Hello everyone it's Zinia from Abstract Inspiration here and today I want to share with you how I made a kinda minimalistic holiday planner. 
Don't get me wrong, I love fluffy and overdecorated planners, especially for special occasions like this but I knew I will be really busy the next month and I wanted my planner to look simple so I won't get overwhelmed but also a bit festive.
To achieve that first I had to add this freaking adorable paper clip on the front of my planner. I really hope Anna will include more of these in her future boxes cause they are the cutest thing ever! I also used some of the red striped washi tape to bring some holiday spirit into my pen as well.
For my December weekly inserts I designed some myself (they are available to download here) so I have them pre-decorated but I couldn't help myself and added some little bits for my first week of December.  Those stickers are too cute to hoard.
I used one of the elf notepad pages and cut it down a bit thinner so it would fit into my personal size Filofax. I keep track of the gifts I want to get for my friends and family. On the opposite side of that, I added a page for extra notes which I decorated with an adorable sticker from the October Afternoon sticker sheet.
Last but not least I added a Santa sticky note (they are my top favorite sticky notes ever!!) on the back of my divider to keep track of the Christmas cards I want to send.
With just a few touches of Christmas decorations and the right colors you can make your planner look festive, you don't need to over decorate if you don't feel like it.


  1. Sometimes less is more and brings out details just the right way :) (Loving the weekly inserts btw, went to check out the downloeads right away.)

  2. I love it Zinia cause sometimes you just want minimal and yours looks fab!
