Decorating Your Agenda: Artful Hacks

Full disclosure: one of the best parts of having Artful Agenda as your personal digital planner is decorating it!

From decorative covers in a rainbow of colors to cute and fitting stickers, there are MANY ways to express your personality and make Artful Agenda your own.

Read on for 3 of my favorite ways to decorate my agenda. 

1. Use the Color Picker

Firstly, hands up if you love it when things match? I hear you!

For all of the aspirational designers out there, you can utilize the color picker to coordinate your cover with your calendar events.

How does this work, you ask?

Well, when you’re assigning your calendar colors, simply “Match…” in the lower right corner. Then hover the circle over the color from your cover that you want each calendar to match— and watch as your planner transforms into a BEAUTY right before your eyes.

2. Choose a Seasonal Cover and Colors

Similarly, if you’re someone who likes to coordinate your agenda with the season, I’ve got the PERFECT solution for you.

You can choose a personalized cover from Artful Agenda’s season-appropriate selection!

The following options are some of my favorites for each season:

Another great way to match your agenda to the season is by using hex codes to define your calendar colors. 

For example, just search “winter hex codes” in our old pal Google and you can find an abundance of options!

You could also use a color resource, like Scheme Color, and type in associated words like “Christmas,” “leaves” or “sunshine” to find some seriously dreamy combinations. Be warned though: you really might fall in love on the spot.

3. Assign Practical Stickers

Finally, there’s a key way that you can focus on the practicality of Artful Agenda but still make it look cute—and that’s through our fabulous sticker collections.

Artful Agenda stickers aren’t just decorative- these emojis and images can be used as a way of flagging important events and details. 

Are you putting a chore on your priority to-do list?  Draw attention to it with a related sticker.

Are you blocking out time for an upcoming workout class? There’s a sticker that can be assigned to that.

Continuing this idea, assign one sticker for bills that are paid, and one for bills that aren’t. You won’t ever miss an important payment again!

Either way, there’s something about pretty hues and pictures that make even the most mundane tasks sound EXCITING! Am I right?

Decorating Your Agenda while Nailing Your Productivity

When I created Artful Agenda I was inspired by the fun and personal touches of a paper planner like covers, handwriting, and stickers. Artful Agenda is a platform that promotes personal growth and productivity, but my inspiration was really to meld those fun and personal touches with the usefulness and integration of digital planning. Opening Artful Agenda should be an experience that is exciting because you can make it reflect exactly who you are! 

Planning is a lot more fun in color! Just try it for yourself.

    When I’m pulling up an activity/appointment, the “match” button isn’t showing up. I’d love to be able to coordinate my planner like this, but I’m not seeing the match button appear. And how do I keep the colors from resetting? I find periodically, if I close the calendar and reopen it, the colors have reverted to a default color for everything.

      Hi Lynn,

      Thanks for your question! The”match” option is only available for calendar colors. To find it, click the arrow next to the calendar and you should see the option to match there.

    I just discovered the Artful Agenda, and I’m just in LOVE!! I’m telling everyone I know abou it! 🙂 Great job Kate!
    I would like to provide a suggestion, in the future would you please be able to add a pictures feature? To be able to add a picture from your phone into your List would be very neat. Not only can it inspire your List but it can even turn into a mini-journaling/grateful journal!
