When I got the Whistle and Birch Planner I was most excited to try the study layout as it has lots of checklist space.

Before the Pen
See my review of the planner in this post.
After the Pen
Last time I used the Whistle and Birch planner I did borders with highlighters, this time I opted for borders with washi tape.
This thin washi tape (it’s only 3mm wide) is from this rainbow skinny washi tape from MAMBI.
I decided it was a bit too plain so added a rainbow border with the highlighters – much better!
I was going to use these vacation countdown stickers I made a few years ago… but I’ve used them for just about every holiday so decided to do something different. Instead I used date dot stickers to create a countdown.
If you’re wondering if investing in marker pens is actually worth it… there is quite a difference in the thickness of a marker pen versus a gel pen:
- Whistle and Birch planner
- Kaco Pure Green gel pens
- Staedtler triplus color 0.3mm (mint pen)
- Papermate Inkjoy Gel 0.7mm (yellow pen)
- MAMBI thin washi tape (rainbow pack)
- Zebra mildliner teal & red (from the brights pack – dark blue)
- Zebra Mildliner red from the yellow pack
- Numbered rainbow stickers (learn how to make your own here)
- MUJI hexa pens – borders at the top of the pages
- Staedtler textsurfer highlighters (Orange, pink, green)
- Keji whiteout tape (from Officeworks)
Would I use this layout again?
Yes. While I normally prefer larger space for Saturday and Sunday, the 2nd page has so much notes & checklist space that most of the page can be converted into weekend planning.
