Have you gotten caught up in the new trend that is sweeping scrapbooking and crafting circles? Decorative planners are extremely hot right now! Over the last few years Filofax has seen a major upsurge as more and more people go back to diaries and paper planners (I am one of them). The spin off from this is decorative planning: using stamps, stickers, washi tape and other craft supplies to pretty-up planners. And now several scrapbooking companies have made the crossover and released their own lines of planning products. It was probably bound to happen as decorative planning overlaps with pocket page scrapbooking in many ways. Both trends include date products, washi tape, and the use of small icons and alphabets. Here are some of the companies now producing planning products that you can buy along with your scrapbooking supplies
