You pick! 3, 6, 9, 12, or 13 months: How long do you want the calendar section to run for? All this will be explained in this section. Download the first part and get started!

Then this section’s for you. We’ll also share some nifty tips on what to jot down on the owner’s page, as well as a few things to think about when designing your planner’s front cover.


  5. Calendar Section
    The calendar section is the heart of your planner. It’s here you really get to customize it, down to the smallest detail. Choose how many months you want your calendar to run for, select language and national holidays, add personal dates, pick your layout and design for your weekly spreads, modules, daily details, and more. With virtually unlimited customization options for this section, the list goes on.

  7. Themed Pages
    Choosing the themed pages is the final touch in creating your planner. This is where you get to pick what personal, practical, and creative pages you want to add at the end of your planner - at no extra cost. Choose from a range of yearly overviews, as well as planning pages like budgeting, organization, and meal prep. Or why not track your wellness journey with habit and mood trackers, and spark your imagination with pages that help unleash your creativity?
