Tutorial How To Create A Planner Photo Overlay Page For The Happy Planner by Me And My Big Ideas - DIY Planner Girl


I am customizing a Happy Planner for my best friend for Christmas. One of my favorite things I've made so far is this overlay page marker with photos dating back to our high school days.

Supplies I used:
-Xyron machine with lamination cartridge inserted. (Walmart)
-Grafix computer-printable transparent plastic sheets (Hobby Lobby)
-Crop-A-Dile Corner Chomper (Michael's on sale)
-ARC punch (Staples)

How to make it:
1. Create a collage or use a print that you like.
2. Print your image on a Grafix computer transparent plastic sheet using a ink jet printer. 
3. Trim to 7.5" x 9.5"
4. Use a 1/4" corner punch to round the corners.
5. Run it through a Xyron machine with lamination cartridge inserted to protect the image.
6. Trim the extra lamination around the photo and trim corners with your corner punch.
7. Punch holes with your ARC punch and insert it into your planner.

I love how my overlay turned out...I would love to see yours! Tag me on instagram @DIYPlannerGirls!

My Planner Addiction Continues

 SEPTEMBER
So my addiction continues! I am having so much fun decorating my planner! I have two planners now, one for fun and one for work. It became apparent after this months spread that I have too many things to add to my planner so I need to seperate them into one for personal planning and one for professional planning. I will show some of my spreads from my work planner as I finish them in the future:)

These are the items I used to decorate my planner:
1. The Happy Planner stickers
2. MAMBI Sticks
3. Cheetah Rose Rhinestone Sheets from The Buckle Boutique
4. Bronze Glitter washi tape
5. Studio G and Sharpie markers to write in my planner.
6. Personal 1.5"x1.5" photos I printed on 4x6 photo paper 
7. My Xyron machine to attach all of the photos on the page.
