I work a bit as a teacher and just finished making this planner. I cut and printed the pages myself, and the cover was made from scrapbooking paper with my name computer printed. The planner was spiral bound at a copy place and has a frosted plastic cover.

Front:





Tabs cut from a file folder and corners rounded:





Calendar:





Schedule:





Class attendance / results list (my own photo as a background. There are several others as well.)





Lesson planning (subject & topics to the left, homework / assignments to the right):





Blank pages (I hate lines):





Squared pages (just a few):





Red envelope pocket with blank notes (unnecessary to rip out entire pages) and contacts list (courtesy of www.diyplanner.com) to the left:




Back cover with sparkling fairies! Cheesy




From the scraps I made a notepad, size 14.5 x 19 cm.
The planner is 16 x 20 cm.


Notepad / sketch pad:

That is beautiful! Are the fairies stamped/printed or your own artwork?

Gorgeous work!

oh my goodness!!!! this is beautiful!!

why have i been paying $10 for a boring/ mildly cute planner??!!!
I used to work at a copy shop where I was Queen of the Binding Machine!!! ah, memories! i bet they would let me do it for free!!!

awesome idea!!! i love that you made it completely custom, blank pages, graph paper pages, scrap/notecards...great!!!

Thanks everyone! Cheesy

This is sooo Beautiful!   My cousin is a teacher and her birthday's coming up.  I really would LOVE to make her something like this.  Great idea and really nicely done!

You should!!! See if you can find out how many classes she teaches; I have two lists for each class/group - one for attendance, one for results. (One with a picture, one plain.) And since I work irregular hours there are several empty schedules, not just one which is the same from week to week.

In my planner last term I used to write how many hours I'd worked each day on the last pages of the planner. A good idea, at least for a substitute teacher, could be to put an empty list to keep track of hours somewhere in there.

I love this planner! I saw the paper to use at a store, so gorgeous! It's next on my list to buy! I already bought the Rockstar theme pack, Glamour pack and Glitter pack!

vira - I've been writing a book with a main character called Vira!!

I also love the paper but have bought separate sheets since the paper stacks are rather expensive.
