I like using my MAMBI but I also like using A5 and full page size printables. To have the option to use printables at all 3 page sizes, I first create the printable at full page size, then resize to whatever I want using my printer (tutorial on resizing to any page size in this post).
Before the Pen
For this week I took some full page size printables and resized to MAMBI classic size.
After the Pen
I used 2 letter size printables I made and resized to MAMBI classic size (tutorial on how to do that is in this post) plus a MAMBI Half sheet checklist printable I made.
A common reader FAQ is ‘what do the letter mean?’ They’re my blog post workflow:
- D = Draft
- E = Edited
- I = Images
- V = Videos
- P = Pinned to Pinterest
I opted to change up the usual checkboxes and use dot stickers instead. I’ve been really good at drafting and recording videos ahead of time lately so already had most of the tasks crossed off!
I could’ve just drawn a checkbox, or used a stamp, but solid dot stickers added a bit more color.

An easy way to coordinate your weekly spreads and make sure they always look good – is to use pens or highlighters that match the colors of the planner.
I used one of the MAMBI half sheet printables I made (the anything list). The photo below is a good example of why I only write on one side of paper – it shows indenting and ghosting. I much prefer to write on fresh paper!
If you’re not sure what to do with notes space on weekly spreads, I tend to use it for overflow – planning things in more details, random notes throughout the week etc.
After the Pen
- Crayola 0.7mm pens
- Papermate Inkjoy Gel 0.7 yellow pen (as Crayola pack does not include one)
- Anything boxes + project planning printables are from this kit in my shop
- Half sheet printable from this kit in my shop (or available individually here)
Would I use this layout again?
Another variation of my usual blog planning on the left and list making on the right so… yes!
