Webster’s Pages Color Crush Planner Kit in Dark Pink

I’m a hardcore planner. I plan anything and everything. Sure, there are times where I say to heck with it and just go with the flow, but I’m an organized planner at heart. I take notes on my iPhone, MAC, random pieces of paper which are organized neatly on my desk. I’ve searched everywhere for a planner that will suit my needs. Because for once I’d like to have an all-in-one place for all of my notes, ideas, and plans.

I remember standing in Target several months ago staring at the small selection of planners on the shelf thinking ‘That’s it?’ A girl standing beside me said ‘It’s so hard to choose. None of them fit my needs, but I need something…’ I nodded because that’s exactly what I was thinking. So I grabbed the best of the worst and tried to make it work. But I never stopped searching for that perfect planner. Then it happened. I stumbled upon the planner hashtags on Instagram. I didn’t know that there were so many planner geeks out there! I also didn’t know that nicer, functional planners actually existed. Let me tell you… they do!

So after watching dozens of unboxing videos on YouTube for the Webster’s Pages Color Crush Planner Kit, I decided that it was the planner I was looking for all my life. I thought that obtaining this planner would be as simple as going to the website and ordering it. Nope. Apparently I’m not the only one who thought this planner was perfection. I found out that my best bet would be to pre-order one on Etsy. I pre-ordered one back in June. I was told that my order would most likely ship around the first week of July. Months went by and I eventually cancelled my pre-order. Long story short the seller got some in stock finally and reached out to me. Within 2 days of ordering (again) I had my dream planner in my hands! It was a long wait, but it was so worth it!

Here are some photos of my unboxing.

The first time around I ordered the teal which actually looks more turquoise to me. My favorite colors are turquoise and pink in case you couldn’t tell. Anyway, when I went to reorder one of the in-stock planners the teal was sold out so I opted for the pink. I’m so glad that I did. It’s so so so pretty! Even my husband said the pink was more my style. I have to agree.

As you can see from the photos the planner is packaged perfectly. Unboxing it really is exciting. On the inside cover there are pockets for you to store some stuff n thangs. There’s really nothing fancy about the dashboard, but it’s all good because I’m planning to order a pretty one on Etsy. The first section is labeled Write It Down (thoughts, ideas, dreams). The second section is labeled Memory Keeping. The third section is labeled Lists To Love (to do, goals, menu, shopping list). The fourth section is labeled Staying Inspired and it contains beautifully decorated inspirational quotes/sayings. The fifth and final section contains the calendar. The inside of the back cover contains a small note pad for note taking layered on top of another pocket. It’s pretty tight so I doubt you could fit much in there. On the side of the note pad is a holder for a pen or pencil. This planner also comes with a bookmark that is decorated with gold polka dots. There’s also an extra calendar pack and a sheet of stickers tucked inside. The Etsy seller added a free washi tape with my order. It’s not a design or color I would use for every day, but it looks like it would make for a nice decoration during Christmas time. You can see it below.

I’ve already started designing my own inserts and dividers. I’m making my own personalized menu sheets along with my own blog schedule sheets. That’s what really sold me on this planner. Being able to personalize it. We all have specific needs. One planner does not fit all. At least not in my freakishly organized world.

Now to figure out how to make my own stickers. Because it’s getting pretty costly. I’ve already spent about $50 on the accessories alone. It’s pretty addicting. That and there’s so many cute things! I just can’t help myself!

I don’t know what else there is to say. I love this planner! So much that I’m going to order another one for my business. It’ll be perfect for keeping track of orders, recipes, recipe ideas, shopping list, etc. The plain old notebook I’m using now just isn’t cutting it. I can already picture one of these beauties decorated with my company logo. And I may as well get the matching folio to hold all of my accessories. See? I might have a problem…

In case any of y’all are wanting one, I figured I’d help you out and list the only stores on Etsy that currently have these planners in stock. If you’re impatient like me and don’t want to wait a year and a day, make sure the listing says IN STOCK. Otherwise you will be paying for a pre-order that could take months to ship out.

  1. I am the complete opposite of you and I actually work better in chaos, I know it’s so weird but I find calmness in it. LOL! My husband on the other hand is like you, extremely organized and everything is labelled and has its own place. I’ll need to check out this planner (not in pink! lol!) for him, I think he’ll love it!

    • It’s not weird at all. We all operate differently. My husband isn’t a planner and also works better in chaos. He’s always telling me to stop with the notes and just go with the flow, but that’s just not who I am.

  2. I had a planner years ago, but stuck to my iPhone for the last years. I carry it with me anywhere, so I figured it would be sensible, but I sometimes miss having an actual planner to hold in my hand…

  3. I love this planner, it’s so cure and it really looks like a planner’s dream. I always buy my planners at Target, few years a go I bought the cutest and handiest planner, it was big, thick and had everything that I needed and wanted. Ever since then I’ve never found anything that I liked as much as that one so usually I just settle for something plain and I dress it up with some stickers and washi tape haha :)

    • I’m so jealous of the people who find nice planners at Target. I have like 3 local(ish) stores and all of them have those basic brown/black planners with the month/week setup. I needed more lol. And you gotta have the stickers and washi! :)

  4. This is soooo up my alley! I adore all things organization! This is so pretty. :) xx

  5. When I was working, I was a planner .. as I had to be, but in my personal life – not so much. I just go with the flow :-)

  6. I keep seeing these planner pictures on Instagram, but I’m not sure I get it… So you buy additional sheets and embellishments for the actual calendar part, is that it?
    I have a cheap planner from Target and it works well for me :p All I really need is a planner that has one page per day and that’s about it, lol!

    • I personally view it as more of a scrapbook than just a planner. I like doodling and prettying things up so it’s really fun for me. And therapeutic.

      I wish all I needed was one page! Oh man. I have a section for appointments/my son’s school stuff/etc., a section for my weekly menus, and a section for my blog. As well as a few random notes stuffed inside. Because I’m forever jotting down notes.

  7. I personally use a plain, old notebook, but this one looks so pretty!

  8. Wow this was a long wait. The planner looks beautiful though! I could see how one could get carried away with accessorizing it! Those heart shaped stickers are so cute!
