Welcome to another fabulous edition of the Graphic 45 blog! Today we have the third edition to Magda Cortez's monthly planner series. For the Month of August Magda shows us how to use up all those bits and pieces we have left over and use them to organize our lives with this gorgeous planner. First, she shows us how to create a monthly goal page and calendar for the full month using our Children's Hour collection. Then she dives in week by week using a different collection for each. We love how each page stands on its own getting you ready to take on each day as it comes, with great sentiments, beauty, and organization! So sit back and enjoy the inspiration, and be sure to tell us which collection she uses is your favorite in the comments below!

“Hi All… It’s Planner time!! Today I’m going to show you the August Spread!!
My Planner has one page where I can plan my goals important dates and Birthdays and the cover of the month. For this part, I used the Children’s Hour August pages. They are perfect for my cover!
For my Monthly spread, I continue with the August pages from Children’s Hour. I love the sunflowers and the fruit border.
For the first week from the 1st to the 6th. Hallowe'en in Wonderland– Deluxe Collector's Edition .. I love love this spread!!
TIP: Fussy cut small images and make clips they look so pretty in your planners or just for fun.
For my second week the 7th to 13th. I used Olde Curiosity Shoppe. Flying pigs and olde curiosity things match beautifully in this spread.
For my third week the 14th to 20th I used the French Country!! Yes, the New release of the Deluxe Collection. Love the sunflowers!!!
And for my last week the 21st to the 27th I used Off to the Races. It looks so fresh!
Well I hope you like the spread of this month and if you are into planners try the G45 planner it is a lot of fun and remembrance of all the collections for sure you have more than one. .. isn’t? How many collections do you have? Or which was your first collection you bought?
