Filofax: Inside My Domino | Part 2

Hello everyone! I feel like I've gotten so much done this week, which is quite surprising for me since I'm the mother to an active and demanding 4-year-old. My Filofax really helps me to stay on top of my projects, and I'm happy that I haven't had to make adjustments to my planning.

A few weeks ago I revealed Part 1 of my Domino, and I'm happy to finally share the remaining pages with you today. Here are the rest of the sections in my book...


This section in my Filofax is pretty self explanatory. It holds various papers and inserts that don't fit into my other categories. I used pretty double-sided patterned paper to create the divider, a Dymo label for the tab, a printable quote for artwork, and some fun washi tape for embellishment.

I put all of my random stuff inside of this section. Here I have some pull-outs from a magazine that I found years ago. They're informative little cards and I love having easy access to them. I also keep the miscellaneous pages that came with my Filofax here. 


This section is another one that is pretty self-explanatory. It holds all of my written notes, along with blank note paper and memo sheets, and a dashboard with fun sticky notes. I used more girly double-sided patterned paper that complements the rest of my dividers. I added another printable for inspiration and a Dymo label for the tab.

The first thing you see when you open the Notes tab is my handmade dashboard. I made it using a Prima overlay from my stash and filled it with some fun sticky notes. To the top of the flyleaf, I added a Daiso label with a doodle of a pencil, so whenever I need to jot down a quick note I can easily find some stickies.

Following my handmade dashboard is a fun mix of random note paper. Most of these sheets were sitting in my stash for a year. With the help of a handy hole puncher, I was happy to finally use them here in my book.

I also like making good use of my collection of notepads. I just took a few sheets and punched some holes in them. Now I have papers from my favorite notepads right here in my Filo.


I don't think I really need to explain anything for this section, so I won't be going into much detail here. I used another pretty double-sided patterned paper to create the divider. Again I added a Dymo label for the tab, and a printable tag from my stash.


It's all about the details... Here I'll be sharing some of the little extras I've included in my Filofax.

The top loading pocket that came with my Domino holds different tabs, labels, and reinforcements. I thought it needed something else, so I added a cute little owl image to the front of it. Now it's perfect and makes me smile!

Following the top loading pocket is my credit card insert from an old Franklin Covey planner. It holds the crafty loyalty cards from my favorite stores, as well as a personal photograph. The printable card I placed on the back of the top-loading pocket has a sweet message and draws my eye to that picture.

A treasured photograph is a really great way to add a personal touch to any book. This one was taken with my pink Instax Mini 8 instant camera. It's much like a retro Polaroid camera from back in the day, but this new generation of instant cameras produces credit card sized photos. They fit perfectly into those slots. I customized this photo even more by covering it with some pretty washi tape.

Next comes another personalized piece, my handmade envelope. I've been making envies like these since I was kid, and thought it would be fun to add one to my Filo. I really love the look and colors from this nail art advertisement, which I found in a magazine a while back. I used washi tape to reinforce the holes and a printable flair badge and Cameo cut with a doodled stitch detail for embellishment.

The back of my Domino has the collection of small stickers I like to use in my book. These personal sized sheets already had holes, so it made sense to add them right to the rings.

I have a zipper pouch in the very back of my book that holds all of my small kawaii stickers.

I have even more flat stickers in the back pocket of my Domino. Aren't they cute?

The only pen loop in my planner holds a small, pink twist-pen that I picked up from my favorite store for Filofax supplies, Daiso. I just couldn't pass it up! It looks adorable in my personal Domino.

Last but not least are my charms. I picked up the kokeshi doll from Daiso, and the honu (sea turtle) came from a local artisan at our neighborhood Farmer's Market. A charm is definitely one of the easiest ways to personalize your Filofax. Much like the jewelry you wear on your body, they can easily be changed out depending on your mood and style. Have fun with it!
