Filofax Month On 2 Pages

Hi everyone!

It’s my birthday today! Although, technically not until I wake up ;). I’ve spent my last evening as a 27 year old working on a set of MO2P (Month On 2 Pages) using Microsoft Word.

I currently use Ray & Steve’s (My Life All In One Place & Philofaxy web pages: I’m doing this on my mobile and it’s playing up so I’ll have to link later) printable inserts, but me being me, forever churning with ideas and “I wish I could have a go at that” mentality… Well, it just had to be attempted.

Originally for 2014 I was going to print off another set of Ray & Steve’s inserts, and I even did this… But I kept having issues with the document (February just wasn’t printing for me). I even looked into the Filofax’s own but could only seem to find this in the stores in white, no cotton cream. So I began my search online for a template.

As the search began, I wanted to find a full set of Monthly inserts detailing the months and dates etc. but there were some really cute dateless and month-less inserts around, I kind of got converted!

The ones I did see however, were already decorated. I like to decorate my own pages (gives me sense of achievement therefore I am more likely to look at it and utilise it, it’s just the way I am). So a little voice in my head began to get louder “why don’t you have a go, just use the templates for inspiration etc”.

So I had a go. It’s not great and even a little plain, but it’s my first attempt. The hearts to put your dates in need to be a little more transparent so you can see the dates… But for me, it is laid out exactly as I need it so that I can washi tape it up and decorate it to my taste etc.

Here is the blank MO2P:

And here is is dated and decorated, and in my Filofax:

Here is another one, February 2014:

If anyone is interested in this insert I can make it available to download 🙂 maybe I can change the shapes to suit more: a car shape, a star shape, an apple shape, a house shape, anything!

Let me know and ill sort something out 🙂

Bohemian Filofax!

G’day folks!

I’ve been living it up lately in my vests and gauzy indian print skirts, 70’s print maxi dresses and bohemian smock tunics so that I could brave this wonderful British heatwave we’ve been having.  Those of you who know me know that I generally like to change my style dramatically – a lot!  So it comes as no surprise that I usually need to match my Filofax to my mood and style.

My girly pink overload was so time consuming to do and fun to look at etc, but no matter how much I adore pink, sometimes my bohemian style just HAS to take over and unfortunately I can’t squash it down.  I had to extend my personal style (as per) over to my Filofax.

A few months ago I purchased “Desert Blooms” and “Boho Chic” 8 x 8 Premium Paper Pads which I’d made a couple of Today Bookmarks from when I first purchased them.  Since then the cardstock sat in my cupboard earning me a lot of puzzled faces, not quite knowing what I ought to use them for again… until now.

I had a go at making my own dividers instead of using Filofax’s dividers or personal size Filofax paper as a starting surface.  Using the double sided papers I was able to create dividers with tabs still using original dividers to outline where I needed to cut etc.  Stick on tab names, laminate, hole punch and I’m good to go!  Here are the results:

This is how they all look together – the first page being the page that will show the organiser number.

These are the prints I’ve used – they’re all “double sided” so they have different prints on the back of the card.

And here is how it’s looking in my Malden.

With regards to my impending news, I’m afraid I’ve had to wait until tomorrow… all shall be revealed…!

Until then
