February 5th 2015, I took a planner leap of faith and ordered my very first Kikki K planner. For those of you who don't know what Kikki K is, Kikki K is an Australia based stationery company that offers planners, desk supplies, journals, etc. I was nervous at first buying the planner because I've never used a ringed-planner and I wasn't sure if I was going to like it, but it was on sale for 50% off and I got a $10 off coupon just for signing up to their website!
I decided to get their large lilac and gold time planner (unfortunately it's been gloomy all day here so I couldn't get a picture of its "true" color). I like the elastic band closure and I'm in love with the gold foil diamond print! Kikki K was super fast with shipping, I got my planner in 5 days, all the way from Australia and I don't think I ever waited so eagerly for anything else lol!
On the inside the planner comes with 4 initial pockets, which I stuck some handmade project life cards and some Target page flags in. Behind there is another pocket and I stuck in some sheets from my cat and mouse Target list pads. There is also a zipper section that I plan to use for planner stickers and then there is another pocket behind that one where I put in a little 4x6 snap pouch for any additional goodies I may want to put in my planner.
The planner also comes fully packed with a set of 7 dividers and page inserts. Monthly view, weekly view, addresses, birthdays/anniversaries, shops and restaurants, to-do and expenses. There is also another pocket in the back with a notepad slipped inside and a pen loop for you to add your own pen - I'm saving mine for an Amethyst Pen Gems Pen!
I am in love with the Kikki K planner and love the versatility with the pockets and the ability to make it my "own" as you can see I've done from the photo above. I've added an acetate sheet, some gold foil cardstock paper and a stamped image that I just love. Overall the Kikki K planner seems very durable. I haven't had mine for long but it's definitely not flimsy or cheap feeling. I love the fact that it comes with dividers and inserts (although I've ordered some other ones) and as weird as it may sound, I love the color of the binder rings - it's a really pretty strong gold color.
The price was do-able, the planner is sturdy, the inserts are nice and it's just very pretty all around. If you are looking for a nice planner that's on the lower side of the price spectrum the Kikki K is the way to go.
Now... enough of my babbling, here is the free printable I promised. At the end of this post there will be a link to the dropbox download where you can download and use this for as long as you'd like. All I ask is that you don't take the link and post it on your website or claim the printable as your own or try to sell it. This is for personal use only. You may share with a friend but please link them back to my blog.
The printable on top is the Current Swaps printable that I created because I'm always in a swap here or there and it's nice to be able to keep up with it and I figured it would be best to create something I could stick in my planner. The printable features 2 pages on one sheet of paper and is created for an A5 size planner. There is a section for swappers name, contact info, when the swap is due, what items you sent, what you received, on what dates and then a little box for you to check off once the swap is complete.
The printable on the bottom is not yet available but if you're interested in the Things Ordered Printable, all I ask is that you follow my social media (either via google +, bloglovin, or instagram), leave a comment below with your e-mail and some of your favorite planner supplies and I will e-mail you a limited time link to the printable.
Here is just a photo of how it looks in the planner. Please be advised that this image shows the printable unpunched. It looks lovely in my lilac Kikki K if I must say so myself.
Please enjoy your free printable and if you have any questions do not hesitate to leave me a message!
Until Next Time
