From Project Life to Planners | Inspiration

Hello hello there! Today I am gonna share a simple post on how I use the pocket sleeves from Simple Stories in one of my A5 sized planner to store my Shop Evalicious goodies (like stickers, journaling cards and paper clips).



Sorry for the glare but this is the best photo i could get to show you a rough idea how the plastic sleeve (in 6x8 size) would look like in a Kikki K Large planner. In general, Kikki K large planner (which is equivalent to Filofax A5 size) is slightly wider, thus I did not trim down the sides of the sleeves as they just fit nicely.


And now, let's get started to turn this Project Life sleeves into planner pockets. All you need is a single hole punch and 6x8 plastic sleeve ( mine are from Simple Stories and i love love love their quality)


I just use one of the A5 size insert to determine where the holes should go. The original 2 holes on the sleeves actually match up with the 2nd and 5th holes of my 6-ring binder.



And here's how the sleeves look like in my A5 sized planner. Nothing is peeking out but when you close the binder, the sleeve might touch the elastic pen loop a little bit but it doesn't bother me at all as I don't really keep my pen there.


For this page, I actually fill up all the pockets with planner stickers. I actually use a paperclip from Shop Evalicious to hold the pocket to prevent the stickers from falling out of the pocket. I usually make my stickers in 3.75' x 5.75', so they are just perfect to be slotted into the 4x6 sized pocket.


I added some journaling cards and Instax photo to the back of this pocket.


And for the sleeve, I actually store some washi tapes sampler and also paper clips. I just trim the 3x4 journalling card a little smaller than 3' and wrap washi tapes around. And for storing paper clips, I cut two slits with my trusty paper trimmer, and added the clips.



And more pics on how each sleeve looks like. This pockets are also perfect for storing memorabilia, receipts and name cards. I hope you have fun using some of your scrapbooking stash in your planners!

Have a great day ;)


Xoxo,
Sam

I don't know if my hole punch will be sharp enough not to ruin the page protector. Do you ever have problems with the hole punch slipping or tearing the platic sleeve. Do you have a special hole punch that you find works best?
