Hi, Jessica from BrownPaperBunny here to show you a couple of planner ideas for school, using your Passion Planner and the Tombow Creative Notetaking Kit. Here’s what you’ll need to get started.
- Passion Planner of your choice*
- Tombow Creative Notetaking Kit
- Washi tape
- Scrap paper
- Tombow MONO Glue Stick
- Additional Tombow MONO Edge Highlighters (optional)
*I’m using the Weekly 2022-2023 Academic Hardcover Haven Hills planner
There are loads of ways you can use your planner to help with school and studying. I’m going to show you a fun way to use your Space of Infinite Possibility in your Passion Planner to create a weekly study playlist.
Step 1: Collect Your Songs
Use your favorite music app and find your favorite songs to study. Alternatively, you could google ready-made study playlists.
Step 2: Write Your Title
You could choose to give your playlist a name that suits the types of songs you’ve chosen or just label it “Study Playlist.”
I used the Tombow TwinTone Markers from the Creative Notetaking Kit and wrote the title in my planner’s Space of Infinite Possibility.
Step 3: Create Your Elements
Using your Creative Notetaking Kit, draw a pattern on a piece of scrap paper. I’ve chosen to draw a simple grid using the green and blue TwinTone Markers. I’m going to use this piece as the background.
Next, draw some small polaroid-style rectangles using the MONO Edge Highlighters and TwinTone Markers from the Creative Notetaking Kit. Cut them out with scissors.
Step 4: Glue Down Your Background
Using your Tombow MONO Glue Stick, glue down the background paper onto the blank space of your journal. You could also use the paper to cover up an area you aren’t using or if you made a mistake or don’t like something in your planner.
Step 5: Create Your Song Images
Using stickers, your Creative Notetaking Kit, washi tape, etc., make little images for each song you’ve added to your study playlist. Then, use the TwinTone Markers to write the song’s name on the bottom of each rectangle.
Once you’re happy with them, stick them on top of your patterned background using your Tombow MONO Glue Stick.
Step 6: Fill in the Rest
Use your Creative Notetaking Kit to fill in the rest of your planner, and you’re all set to stay on top of your study week!
