When I bought the PAIPUR notebook I knew I wanted to use it right away – it’s only the second hybrid notebook I’ve come across (the other being the Siwengde) & the dot grid and line spacing are perfect!

Before the Pen
The notebook comes with squares in the corners you can use for anything you like (page numbers, referencing your index, numbered lists etc.) – I opted to use it for color coding. Since there’s so much space to write in this notebook I wanted to use it for a week where I had a lot of to do’s.
I always use erasable pens to mark the middle of the page since I wasn’t going to rule a line – then I can just erase after finishing setup.
I’m trying to make an effort this year to use planner supplies I have but rarely use – the main one being anything pastel. Hence the use of the pastel Stabilo Boss highlighters.
After the Pen
I really love this spread, the only thing I’d change is that I should’ve moved the weekly review section farther up the page (I ended up just writing above the title when I ran out of room).
Since there’s no big travel trips for me this year 🙁 I’ve started planning some local trips to see the last of my Australian bucket list. I do the itinerary planning using these spreadsheets I made and then pluck out what trip to do’s I’m working on that week and add them to my weekly spread.
Love how these colors look together!
I used the Creative Devotion fine tip pens but then decided highlighting over the top would look better. Unfortunately these pens are a bit prone to smearing.

Would I use this notebook again?
Yes. The line spacing is perfect, I like the combination of lined and dot grid. The page size is a bit bigger than I’d normally use but some weeks when I need more space I’d use this notebook.
I think the boxes in each corner don’t need to be as big and it’d be great if they were below the dots and lines rather than within the writing space.
