With so many people going back to planners, I did revisit the idea of using a Daytimer or some other planner system again. I lived by my Daytimer in the 90's and early 2000's but my life has changed. I have far fewer appointments but just as many lists if not more. So I needed to stick with something more free form.
Typically, I use a hole punch to do the front cover to fit. I've done a couple of popular videos on this before. Here is the basic one:
This year though it dawned on me that I have an electronic die cutter that could cut out all those little holes and slits for me. The crop-a-dile will cut through anything but it is tedious compared to putting a paper on a mat and pressing a button. So after a couple of fits and starts, I set up a Silhouette file to do a cover. It is a dream!
Fortunately, the Silhouette software uses a lot of the same conventions as PowerPoint so it was fairly easy to get it to do what I told it to. It makes me want to create some other files for different kinds of notebooks. Hopefully, I'll get to that soon. Right now I'm still busy getting the video editing for the Stencil class coming up. With concentrating on that, I won't have a scrapbook process video this week. I do have a video below on the notebook cover. Here is an inside view of the notebook.
