Designing a Personal Progress Planner has been on my to do list for years - but it wasn't until my daughter BEGGED me to make one for her (so she could mentor a Beehive)... that I decided to do it. She helped with every section and aspect, personally requested Value Colored OWLS and I think it's awesome! The best part is... it gives Young Women an easy way to set goals, track progress and self-manage many aspects of Personal Progress! This planner is UNDATED, therefore - can be printed with as many months (or years' worth) that you want!
★ UNDATED Monthly Calendars
★ Prayer & Daily Scripture Reading Trackers
★ Monthly planning spots for Projects & Experiences
★ Book of Mormon Reading Tracker
★ PP / Experience & Project Tracker
★ Honor Bee Service Hour Log
★ Book of Mormon Reading Tracker for Honor Bee too!
★ Coordinating tabs and pen inserts, too!
---> The calendar is great for tracking/recording Value Experiences that require daily action (ie... Meal Prep for 2 Weeks or keeping an Exercise or New Habit Tracker). Also great for recording activities, interviews, service hours, etc.
INCLUDED IN THIS LISTING: This listing includes a 34 page PDF file + 5 Assorted Covers, a sheet of printable sticker/divider tabs, extra journalling pages and coordinating pen inserts for RSVP Pentel Pens!
HOW MANY PAGES IS THIS PLANNER? This planner is UNDATED so you can print and add as many pages to a planner or binder that you want... this makes it good for a year or longer! If you are printing these for your new YW, it now no longer matters if they come in in February or July - the planner will last them as long as you want it to based on the number of months you include. Great also for moms to buy and make their YW, you don't need to be a leader to be interested in this planner!
HOW TO USE THIS PLANNER: Basically, each month has a simple two-page planning spread (with calendar and places for experience/project planning + journalling). The girls can use the calendar and monthly spread to plan which projects or experiences they are working on simultaeously across different values. It can be tough to remember or track the "two week" type experiences like fixing dinners while also tracking reading, praying and a 10 hour project. This can now all be done on the same page with extra journalling space provided for the experiences that require recording thoughts. Take a look at the layout pictures to get an idea...
ADDING TEXT PRIOR TO PRINTING: dding text to your PDF before printing is easy! If you have the most current version of Adobe Reader, you can use the "comment" function to insert text boxes where desired. Or, look around online for a free PDF Editor (there are lots)! Simply upload the file, use their tools to insert your text, then download and print!
HOW TO PRINT & ASSEMBLE: Print your planner on regular white paper and choose "double sided printing". All inside pages are black and white only (which makes printing much less expensive). For the covers, print one front cover (5 colors included)... then print the back cover for each planner you make. The covers are designed for "borderless" printing, so if you are printing at home - select "photo printing" on your print properties, check the "fit" box and choose 8.5x11 borderless in your print properties. Most home inkjets and photo printers will perform this function (mine is 3 years old and does a fantastic job). For most vivid color results, use a heavy stock, preferably of glossy photo paper quality. I laminate my covers before binding to increase durability. Printing your covers can also be done at a copy shop. For an easier and less expensive option, simply use a 3 ring binder.
PRINTING TIP: If you would like MORE "Journal" pages in your planner, simply print extra of those pages, double sided, to add to the end of the planner.
APPLYING THE STICKER TABS: This set of planner tabs is optional. For best results, print on full-size white sticker (or label) paper found at any copy/office store. Trim, then fold in half. Peal the sticker back and apply tabs in a staggered fashion on the right side of the corresponding monthly pages. Following the same application instructions... you may choose to simply print on white card stock, punch, crease/fold and adhere with a staple. It's super easy, it's functional - AND makes your planner super cute!
HOW TO MAKE YOUR PENS... (Designed for Pentel RSVP) - It's simple! Just trim the strips, curl/roll and insert into pen tube (see graphics for picture tutorial).
