Watercolor Title Page

This is a light gray and yellow watercolor title page in the shape of a daisy. For the header, “Kathleen’s is written in black brush lettering. Then, “2020 planner” is in print font below the main header.

One Page Year at a Glance: 

This year at a glance features 12 months, January 2020 through December 2020, in a calendar format.  Further, the months are horizontally indicated in yellow script lettering. Then, “2020” is at the top of the page in a print font. Lastly, “at a glance” is in a yellow minimal script font.


This layout covers four pages, each of which has three rows. Further, each row is for a month of the year. The main header is a yellow brush lettering. Additionally, the months have black separators between them. Each month has a mini-calendar of the month.

Quote Pages

Each month features various positive quotes. These quotes are done in golden yellow and black ink using a variety of font choices. To see each of these quotes view the images or video. Additionally, below is a list of the quotes used.

  • Live a life you love.
  • Today is a new day.
  • Never let the things you want make you forget the things you have.
  • I’m coming for everything they said I couldn’t have.
  • Don’t think about what might go wrong, think about what might go right.
  • Once you replace negative thoughts with positive ones, you’ll start having positive results.
  • Create the highest, grandest vision possible for your life, because you become what you believe.

  • Expect nothing, appreciate everything.
  • Decide every morning that you are in a good mood.
  • This is the beginning of everything you want.

Simple Monthly Calendar

For each monthly layout, I used a simple grid calendar. Then, the header is a golden yellow brush lettering. Additionally, the header is located vertically down the right side.

Weightloss & Measurements: 

This layout includes 2 sections. Further, these sections are weight loss on the left page and measurements on the right page. The weight loss tracker is like a board game that flows from the top toward the bottom. As weight is lost, Kathleen can fill in the squares. Additionally, the right side is mostly a list with space left blank to write in detail. Then, at the bottom, there is a chart for rewards. For the headers, lettering is a golden yellow brush cursive.

Weekly Rows + More

The left page of this layout has seven rows, one for each day of the week. Then, the days of the week headers are in a golden yellow brush cursive letter with the date in a subscript. Next, the right page has three sections in two columns. The left column is “to-do,” and the right column includes sections “notes” and “workouts.” Lastly, the header is on the right page in a print font.
