I'm really enjoying using my Lots O'Dots Daily Doodle this summer. The colors are so fun and bright and perfect for these warm, lazy days. Today I'm going to share how I designed an insert to use in my planner. Since summertime is a slower time for me, I don't usually need to write as much in my weekly spread. Because of this, I don't need as much space. I decided to create a weekly format that allows me to write down the important things and gives me some space for notes or lists as they come along. Here's how my spread turned out.

Once again, I am using the Simply Spring collection (see my last blog post) because the colors and motifs are so much fun! I used a blank grid insert and decided to include Monday through Friday, since those are the days I tend to have more commitments. I started off by adding the washi to the middle of the page. Then, I used the Abigail font stickers to label the days. I added some die cuts from the Odds and Ends pack and some Fancy Frills border stickers, as well as borders from the This and That sticker page.

On the opposite page, I added a large sticker and some more smaller ones.  I used the Teensy Type to label my notes section and finished it off with the Icon stickers.
In  order to make some more writing space, I decided to create a little note attached to a large paper clip. I love how it turned out. It was so easy and adds a nice extra to the spread. I used a card from the A6 Paisley Card Assortment. I measured it against my large paper clip (these can easily be found at Staples, Target or the Dollar Store.) Then, I cut the ends off. 
I used the center piece for the To Do list. I added some die cuts and used foam adhesive to give it some dimension. I added the word 'DO" using more Abigail font stickers. I just love them. I slid the note onto the clip and then onto my page. I like that I can take it off and write on it as needed.
The Simply Spring collection continues to be one of my favorites for the summer. The florals and bright colors work perfectly in my Lots O'Dots Daily Doodle planner. I hope you found some ideas that you might use today!
