Deep in the depths of my craft crap I found a little stash of chipboard which I don't even remember where from but they were all the same. I glued together 3 sheets to make thicker, sturdier pieces for my binder. I cut them to accommodate my inserts which are 1/4 of a standard sheet of paper plus the rings. (which is why I call it a mini mini planner. :) ) I used 12 x 12 fabric paper - which wasn't quite wide enough so I had to piece it which is why I have the ribbon on the cover to hide the seam. I would've preferred a darker blue but I was working with what I had available. I also wanted it wide and grosgrain. The nice thing about the fabric is because it's paper-backed it kept the glue from having bleed-through.

Some of the other monthly pages. I haven't actually glued down the March image yet. I'll be looking for paper to go behind it. On the back side is a list for birthdays and I haven't decide yet what to put on the facing page. Maybe some quote images. I haven't filled in birthdays or holidays yet on all the monthly pages.
An example of a weekly spread. Starting in 2017 the first weekly page of the month has a word/phrase sticker as you can see above. I cut myself a page marker from gridded quilting template material. It's marked off at 1/4" so it has another useful purpose, too, as a ruler. Here I used some of the planner stickers I made and couple other stickers for fun. While I don't plan on doing 'no white space' I will work my way up to adding more bits and pieces as I get used to doing the planner thing.
I also have year-at-glance pages but split them up into 6 months so the next 6 is in front of July.
So that is it so far to really show. I will be making inserts to keep track of books I've read, too. I already have picked out 2 ME quote images and need to choose one. Or maybe use both and just make it a divider page with one on each side. :)
