Motivational Quotes

Hello lovelies,

As most of you all know by now I have jumped on the planner band wagon and I am totally loving it.
Since I got it I have been working non stop on finding ways to decorate and organise my planner getting it ready for use. I reckon it is going to make a few months to feel 100% comfortable with it.
I might be a slight perfectionist if you ask me.  So anyway enough talking and lets get to the real reason that you are probably here and that is the free downloadable of course.  I have left a link down below so you can click away and download it.

If you do use my downloadable link and print your self some motivational quotes I would appreciate and love it so much if you would tag me in any posts that you post whether it be on Facebook or instagram. You can find me @filizlovepaper on instagram and you can find me on Facebook at

Thank you so much for stopping by

Have a lovely day

Midori Pocket #5


So we have come to the last video of the Midori Pocket Series. This is the last pocket that I will be teaching how to make.

There will be one last video in the series and that will focus on how I have decorated these pocket inserts and also how you can also use these pockets in other planners and notebooks/ journals.

So, I truly  hope you have enjoyed this series and learnt a thing or two about making pockets.

Have a great day

Midori Pocket #4


How are you all today? I woke up extra early this morning and got straight into editing this video. I wanted it out of the way nice and early so I could get on with some more exciting projects I am going to be working on. Oh and today is Pl day but I think I will do that tomorrow.

So I have made the announcement at the beginning of this video that I decided the last 5 videos of the Midori Pocket Series will focus on Embellishing and talking a bit about how else you could use these pockets other than in a Midori. I am really happy to have made that decision because I think it will help with getting a better understanding into what these pockets are all about.

So that means that after this pocket I have 1 more to teach and than its time to embellish woo hoo!!!

Alright well I must be off now so I will speak to you guys again very soon...

Tips & Tricks - How to do Project Life weekly, EASILY!!!


How are you all? I hope great. I am busy busy today filming a couple of videos.

Recently I have been hearing more often than not that people feel like project life is hard to keep up with. However I couldn't disagree more. I do PL on a weekly basis and personally I think its the best way thats not to say the way another does it is wrong. This is just my personal opinion.

In the video below I share some really simple but effective tips on how you can make PL weekly an absolute breeze.

I won't go into detail by writing since you could just watch it anyway. So I will just say I hope you enjoy the tips and tricks and they help you get on top of your Pl or if you are just starting Pl.

Have a lovely day everyone

'Midori Pocket Series' Pocket #3


Hope you all are well. Yet another monday has come and as you all know by now that means another Pocket Insert from the 'Midori Pocket Series'.

I mentioned in the video but thought I will mention here as well.  That although the title of the series is 'Midori Pocket Series' there is no reason why you can't take these pockets and use them in other regular planners too. The way you would do that is to basically not glue the pockets on to the base but instead glue them on to your planner dashboards or planner covers. The possibilities are absolutely endless. So I hope that little tip inspires you to take these pockets to a whole new level.

Anyways I want to keep writing but I really want to finish this video (including the blog post and everything...) because I need to get my project life done for last week and also I have a very exciting project I am working on which I will reveal on my youtube channel in the next week or so.

Hope you all have a wonderful day and I will speak to you all very very soon.
