And so, through Keynote magic and the art of holding my tongue just right, I have created my first, I hope, of many digital planners. (Guess what everyone in the Harper clan is getting for Christmas!).
Here's a peek at the first DiDiDigi-Planner from Grandma DiDi Designs. This is the "Color My World" edition, and should be in my Etsy Shop some time today after I do some tweaking with the logo. It will be priced at $49.99, but there is a 50% off coupon over in the sidebar that is good through Jan. 31, so you can get it for half off.
The planner is undated so it can be used over and over. Two sets of date stickers in a watercolor design, are located on the last spread of the planner. If you are using GoodNotes, all you have to do is lasso the date, screenshot it in GoodNotes, copy it and place it on the proper spread. And there are hundreds of free and for-purchase date covers on blogs and in Etsy shops.
I have to say it was a fun experience creating this planner. Unfortunately, I tend to obsess over details, and I start over a lot, so it takes me a long time to come up with something I'm willing to share. This was actually the sixth planner I did. I got faster at it, but it still takes a long time (for me) to put it all together. But I learn something new each step of the way, including ways to save some steps in the future. It amazes me that the pros who have been at this a while, like Tam Spires who does the Seriously Simple™ planner, can turn them out so quickly and so beautifully.
This planner works best with GoodNotes on an iPad, but will work with less functionality (no hyperlinks) on Metamoji Notes. We are discovering other apps all the time that may be suitable for use with the digital planners
Information on building your own planner is in a previous post, with a series of videos by Lisa Marie Hart. The videos are also linked in the menu above if you would like to try it.
As always, questions and comments are always welcome in the comments. The invitation to join us in the Seriously Simple Facebook group is always open, and you will find people representing some of the apps we use and products we love among us. There are also a lot of friendly people eager to learn, and help you learn, about the fun of creative digital planning.
