I’m currently working on Month On Two Pages for 2015 with the kokeshi doll characters.  They’ll be available for the Personal size for sure, but I’m not sure about the Pocket and A5 size yet.  If I can’t get enough time to create them for the Pocket & A5 size, I’ll create some undated versions!

Thank you for reading, and I hope you enjoy making and using my printable refills!

❤❤Cute Kokeshi Doll: Set of 3 Pagemarkers ❤❤

Thank you so much for all the comments on the last post!  I really appreciate all of them!

I was planning on writing about my new stickers on this post, but I started working on some new page-markers after reading the comments on my last post, and I’d like to write about them first!

Like *Stationary Addict* said in the comment section, if you set a few page-markers in the binder they would overlap in the same spot and you wouldn’t be able to see the ones behind properly.  I was actually worried about exactly the same thing, so decided to follow what she said:
“would be good to have them staggered like tabs on dividers so they can be more easily seen.”

I worked on them REALLY HARD last night…!

P1120827 copy
And printed them out this morning, TA-DAH!

P1120855 copy
This is after I cut them out and laminated them.

P1120857 copy
So these page-markers have tabs like dividers.

P1120883 copy
Unlike dividers the width of these page-markers is only 5 cm, so the tabs are overlapping like the image above, but you still can see the faces of the Kokeshi girls 🙂

P1120885 copy
I could have made the tabs wider, but I made them like this because I wanted them away from the rings as much as possible as it’s easier to flick them over.

I set them up in the Filofax I’m using now.  They are quite cheerful, aren’t they!

P1120863 blog
I used three Kokeshi girls Clara, Amy and Louise this time, but I’m also thinking of making another set just like these with Saffron and Tama.  I won’t be able to make a set of more than 3 page-markers, but if you get two sets you can have 6 page-markers in total 🙂

Once I make three more page-markers I will put them all up on my Etsy shop!

Thank you for reading!

❤❤Cute Kokeshi Doll Pagemarkers ❤❤

It was my birthday on Wednesday, and on that day I took the train in the morning to do a Japanese calligraphy (shodo) workshop in Northern Liverpool!  This lovely artist I know teaches pottery and he asked me to do a workshop for his pottery students.  I was totally nervous at the beginning, but his students were really lovely so I could enjoy the workshop myself in the end.  I hope they enjoyed it, too!!

*I’m hiding their faces as I forgot to ask them if it was alright to put the photos up on my blog!

workshop
Then in the evening my mother-in-law brought some presents and her homemade birthday cake for me!  It was such a gorgeous cake with chocolate cream inside.

P1120762
So now my birthday is over, and I’ve been working on some new items like page-markers and calendar stickers.  I’d like to show you some sample page-markers I’ve made.

pagemarkers1
I made a window in the middle for the blue one.  If there is a window like this it becomes uneven when I laminate it, so it’s not my favourite type of page-marker to make (lol!), but I LOVE the window for some reason so I really wanted to make a sample with a window.

pagemarkers2
This is how it looks when it’s set in my Pocket sized Filofax (Finsbury).  (I’m thinking of making them in three sizes: Pocket, Personal and A5.)

pagemarkers10
The ribbon pops out from the top.

pagemarkers3
This page-marker is approx. 45mm wide.

pagemarkers4

pagemarkers11
And the pink one is more simple, but it’s longer.

pagemarkers5
So you can turn the page from either the top or the bottom.

pagemarkers7

pagemarkers6
The width is also 45mm, but it looks quite wide in my Pocket Finsbury, doesn’t it??

pagemarkers8
I’m thinking of making a set of multiple page-markers instead of just selling one, so I’d like to ask you what kind of set you would like to have!  How many page-markers would you want in one set?  Any preferable size?  Colours?

*You can see more details of the one on the right on THIS PAGE.

pagemarkers9
I would really appreciate your opinions!!  And thank you for reading!

Last night, I was thinking about making some page markers but I couldn’t come up with the designs I really like…
So I decided to make one with the idea which I came up with long ago to help me refresh my thoughts!

Here is the “See-thru divider” which I made a while back, and I was going to make something similar but a cuter version of it 🙂

Filofax Malden Vintage Pink 4 640x480
I did some designing on Photoshop based on my rough sketches…

P1120545 copy
Then I printed it out and cut out the parts I didn’t need.  It was a bit of a hassle to cut out the middle part, but I managed it somehow.

P1120543
Then I laminated it with a laminator, but it’s not 100% flat, can you see?

P1120546 copy
When I use my laminator it always becomes ever so slightly uneven, so I always use a clothes iron afterwards to make it smooth and flat.

P1120548 copy
And here is the finished sample of the “See-Thru Page Marker”!

P1120551
To be honest, the original version of the See-Thru divider (the first photo) was more practical as you can see both pages perfectly when the divider is in between.  But this one is a lot cuter 🙂

New Pocket Finsbury and Colourful Monthly Calendar :)

<<INFORMATION>>
A5 dividers are now available at Japan Corner 🙂

A5 top image etsy

I’ve been wanting to design more refills, stickers, Today markers…etc., but I just don’t have enough time…!   I guess I can do that after Christmas 🙂  I’ve also been wanting to make some cute week-to-view refills, but I’m short on time at the moment so I just made these simple ones for now.

P1120254 copy

They are just simple refills, but they’ve got more space compared to Filofax week on two pages.

By the way, I like my new Finsbury.  The very first Filofax I bought was Pocket Finsbury Aqua, but I damaged the front cover and tried to fix it but I made it even worse… 😦  So I bought a Pocket Malden, and I liked it, but I couldn’t forget about the Finsbury..!  I just like its stiff leather and squareness.

The colour is Antique Rose, and it’s grayish pink.  I love pink, but I’m so clumsy, so this grayish pink is perfect for me as any damage to it won’t be so obvious 🙂

P1120298 copy

P1120487 copy

These are the monthly calendar pages for November.

P1120485 copy

They are quite colourful…maybe too colourful!?

P1120486 copy

I hope I can show you some new refills/stickers/today markers sometime soon!

Kokeshi Dividers for Personal FINALLY READY :)

Thank you very much for all the measuring Suzee and Ray!  I worked on the see-thru window for the Personal size this weekend!

The measurements are as shown below according to Suzee:

Regist Cover Personal

And thank you for the extra information, Ray!  The size could be slightly different depending on the inserts you buy!

So I made the see-thru window like this:

number cover window

You might need to re-write your registration number on a new insert for the registration number so you can see your number through the window properly.

I made some samples and tested just in case.

P1120374

I used my husband’s Collins binder as I don’t have any Personal Filofax.

P1120377

P1120375

Then I made some adjustments…

P1120382

P1120411

And here they are, they are FINALLY ready!
