January Digital Planner Layout – Cover Page:
My digital planner for 2018 was pink with beautiful roses. This year I decided to use two planners, one for my monthly layouts and another one for my yearly layouts. This cover page is for my monthly planner.
I love the bright blue colors with dots. I added 3 of my favorite pictures to give the planner a personal touch. On the right page, I typed everything I did for the January pages. The app I’m using for this layout is called ZoomNotes.
The theme for my January layout is the universe. I wanted the pages of my planner to have a little bit of blue, pink, and yellow colors. I created these two pages using the app ZoomNotes. I used the bucket option to fill in the page with a blue color and the different pen options to draw the calendar and “bye-bye 2018” word.
The ZoomNotes app is great, but it takes a lot of time to learn how to use all the tools and how to set up the options in the app to behave a certain way. Something I do love about this app is the layers options. The layers are similar to the ones in the Procreate app. You can change the opacity of the drawings, like the stars and clouds that I drew on the left page.
The key I’m using on this planner is the same as the one I used in my previous planner. The only difference is the flowers that I added to the corners of the planner.
I’m going to use this page to track my daily exercise routine. For some reason, the ZoomNotes app kept deleting the number two on the left page. Every time I added the white doodles, the number randomly disappeared. I drew this page 2 or 3 times and gave up on the top part of the number two. I emailed the developer of the app and I hope he can find a solution to this small glitch.
January Weekly Spread:
I saw this weekly spread on Pinterest and I fell in love with it! I’m going to use it to track my work schedule and daily to-dos. I drew the numbers with the calligraphy pen and reduced the opacity of the layer to make the numbers look like background images.
I put the hand-drawn numbers in one layer and the days of the week stickers on another layer. The days of the week are actually on top of the hand-drawn numbers. This is something the GoodNotes app doesn’t have, the ability to move images to the front or to the back.
January Mood Tracker + Vision Board:
This app is also really good for hand lettering. I added my January mood tracker to the left side of the page and the hand lettering looks perfect!
On the right page, I added my vision board for 2019. I was able to accomplish a lot during 2018 and this vision board always helps me to focus on my main goals. I keep it in my planner and I also print it and put it somewhere in my office where I can see it daily.
Something I miss from the Notability app is how smooth my handwriting looks and the option to rotate and enlarge my drawings. the ZoomNotes app allows you to rotate and enlarge images. It also allows you to rotate and enlarge your handwriting like in the Notability app!
I like to think of the ZoomNotes app as a combination between Notability and GoodNotes. I usually complete my digital planner layouts in 3 days, one day for planning, the second day for drawing, and on the third day, I add the final touches to my designs.
I love all the tools the ZoomNotes app offers, but keep in mind that it took me a week to learn how to use the tools and tweaking the settings to my liking.
