Using planner printables is a great way to change things up in your journal. Check out our list of 14 ways to use printables in your journal.
In an ideal world, it’s fab to be able to sit down and create your monthly, weekly or daily journal spreads by hand. Personalising to suit your needs is the fun of journaling.
There are however, some times where this just isn’t possible. Ironically, it is when life gets really busy that your journal is most needed!
1. Undated Printables
Our monthly, weekly and daily printables are undated so can be used again and again! Add doodles, colour, or Washi tape to match your printables to your theme.
2. Dated Printables
Date specific printables, like these included with any of our monthly subscriptions, go one step further to creating a quick journal set up!
Make it yours…
Add doodles, colour, or Washi tape to help your printables blend into your journal and match your theme.
Did you know we have over 120 different patterned paper printables in our webshop?
3. Scrapbook style decoration
Using patterned paper to decorate your journal spreads is a super quick way to add decoration.
Make a feature of the torn edge, or cut into block shapes.

4. Blocks of colour
Printable papers don’t always have to have crazy patterns. Some of our most popular printables are our colour co-ordinating dot-grid paper or paint effect downloads.
Use them in place of colouring by pen or pencil, or layer (as in the photo shown) to create depth.

6. Functional Pockets
Larger functional pockets can be super useful in your journal.
In this example we have created a pocket to house a calendar postcard.
Featured: Royal pattern printables and Washi tape.
Use patterned printables with our extra large fonts to create a really impactful header!
Flip the stencil and trace the letter onto the reverse side of the patterened paper to hide any evidence of pen/pencil marks when you add into your spread.

8. Page Tabs
Use patterned paper to add co-ordinating page tabs to any journal spread!
We included this fab page tab stencil with our Marrakesh Subsription box… Drop us a comment below if you’d like to see us added to our permanent collection.

9. Annual Trackers
An annual tracker like the one shown can be used for tracking mood, habits, weather, and health stats!
Add the tracker to your journal using Washi tape so that you can release the tape and move to your next journal rather than setting the whole thing up again!

10. Monthly Habit Tracker
Our printable monthly habit trackers make quick work of journal set up!
11. Miscellaneous Trackers
We have created a whole range of trackers to use for tracking sleep, gratitude and monthly tasks.
12. Themed Habit Tracker/Colouring Page
Every month we create a habit tracker/colouring page to co-ordinate with our monthly subscription theme!
All of our subscribers get access to our digital bundle which includes this and other monthly printables, and our Daisy Says/Combo subscribers get physical copy of this included with their box.
