New Planner Printables in the Shop!

The much-requested dated 2015 weekly and monthly inserts for A5 size are here as well as brand new standard sizes! Here’s a quick rundown of what’s new in the store today. As always, if you have a request for a different size or type of insert, please feel free to leave a comment and I’ll see if I can make it happen!

Here’s a good look at the new sizes with the current Filofax printables. This allows you to see all of them at once and may even help you choose the type of planner that’s right for you. The sizes are as follows:

American Standard:

  • Letter – 8.5″ x 11″ – 7 holes (also fits 3-hole standard punch) this is the only printable with no trimming involved – it has a white border around the outside to allow for printer channels
  • Half-Letter – 5.5″ x 8.25″ – 7 holes (also fits 3-hole punch) this is just a smidgen shorter than half a sheet of letter paper, but it will fit perfectly in all binders of this size
  • Compact – 4.25″ x 6.75″ – 6 holes (two sets of three holes) – best known as the Franklin Covey Compact Size

Filofax Standard:

  • A5 – 5.75″ x 8.25″ – 6 holes (two sets of three holes)
  • Personal – 3.75″ x 6.75″ – 6 holes (two sets of three holes)
  • Compact – 3.25″ x 4.75″ – 6 holes

2015 A5 Weekly and Monthly Dated by Britta Swiderski - brittaswiderski.com/shop

Today also means the release of the 2015 Dated Weekly and Monthly pages for the A5 size. Yay! These have been probably the most requested item, and I’m glad to be able to have them ready for you in the shop now!

Thank you so much for stopping by today. I’ve gotten several comments and emails lately from long-time blog readers that are now getting into the fun of decorating planners, and that makes me so happy. I love learning new things with lots of people! It’s awesome. But don’t worry if you’re not into planning; regular stamping and cardmaking videos are still the main part of this blog (and my youtube channel), s stick around for those! See you soon with another video. :)

I’m walking in Timmy’s honor on September 14th, and you can learn more about donating to the walk and more about the AFSP here on my charity fundraising page: Timmy’s Plum Shirts.

I tried my best to show a good overall view of the show without obsessing over anything in particular, so thank you so much for having fun with me over the past several weeks!

On the horizon: I really want to get back into making videos (!!!) and more tips and tricks posts, plus one sharing about all the new inks that are out there right now so you can see the differences. I also have a sizable list of requests for filofax inserts and want to re-do the back end of my system for purchasing and participating in classes. I have lots of ambitions! Haha. I’m also editing the first draft of my portfolio, which means that it should be ready to show people in about a week. Eek!

Thanks for stopping by today. Mwah!
