Here’s how the editable version works:

I have inserted the backgrounds and templates as images on each slide. You will notice that I have either inserted text boxes for you to click on and customize to your liking, or I have inserted tables for you to just click in and type. I've included links to the fonts used in this planner. However, you can always use whichever font you choose. I have also included blank cover pages, divider pages and a blank page (with the theme/design for you to add to). Please note: The calendar headings and dates are NOW editable! Once you have your pages customized, simply save your changes and come back to your file any time you need to change or update your planner!

In the past, I’ve used a three-ring binder to house my planner. I’ve also taken it to a professional printing store to have my planner bound into a book! I now laminate and bind my own each year and I’ve had SO many compliments on this!


To save you money, once you’ve purchased, you will receive ALL updates, added features and new pages by going to your “My Purchases” section in your TpT account, or just download the newest version, right here on this product page. You’ll receive the updated planner FREE of charge!
