Free Customizable Digital Planner | Mudcloth Inspired Design on Recycled Paper with Colorful Stickers

As you may already know, I swear by digital planning.  I kept a paper planner for years, but after spilling one too many coffees and losing several planners over the years, I am now a throughly convinced digital planner.  One of the things I love most about digital planning is that I can back up my planner using online storage like Dropbox, so I can never lose the important data and I rely on to tell me exactly WHY I should get out of bed that day.

I’ve been using my white and gray digital planner for almost a year, and I’m simply tired of looking at white screens.  Am I the only one??  I doubt it.  So as I started designing this new planner I kept my eye health in mind and used a darker background.  The recycled paper background is perfect for displaying colorful inks and stickers, without straining the eyes like white paper does.

I tend to change my style and color palette often, so I really wanted to have a planner that I could totally change up each month without changing the structure of my planner.  I created this planner to be fully customizable with the colors and stickers that work best for your personal style and mood.

If you want to see some tips for how to download and use the planner, check out this video:

Here is a look at the planner layout:There is a yearly view with clickable links to each month and monthly view for each month of the year.  Every page in the planner has those little white buttons at the bottom that link to the calendar pages, and all the pages below.

I was inspired by James Altucher to start writing down my ideas each day.  No matter how crazy or ridiculous the idea is, I write it down.  Most of the ideas are crap, but sometimes I make an incredible realization about my work or personal life.  I added an ideas page in the planner to inspire me to keep up the practice!

I included some blank writing paper for taking notes or making lists.  The back of the planner has blank pages that you can fill with anything at all.  I created the planner using the process from my Skillshare tutorial on designing a digital planner on your iPad, so if you want to learn how to create your own planner, check out the class:
