Studio Tour | Check Out my Desk, Gear, and Creative Process

I finally created a studio tour!  So many of you have asked me about my tools, workspace, and creative process I thought it was time to give you a peek into my creative space.  I turned my home office into an inspiring studio with a few cheap and easy tricks that I’ll share in the video.

Here are the links I mentioned in the video.  Note: some of these are affiliate links, which means I get a small percentage of any sales that take place via the links.  It doesn’t increase the price for the buyer, but it does help me continue creating classes and videos like this one!

Free Digital Planner + 64 Digital Planner Stickers

Free Digital Planner + 64 Digital Planner Stickers

I can’t stop making digital planners!  I just finished the planner I’ll be using in 2019 and wanted to share it with you as a free download.  This year I’m focusing on tracking my goals on a daily basis, and just staying more organized in general (hello digital planning!).

The planner includes a goal tracker for 3 different daily goals, plus 64 pre-cropped stickers that you can use to mark your calendar, tracker, and notes throughout the planner.  I made one page of pre-cropped stickers, but I have a ton more planned which I’ll give away as inserts that match the planner design.  So make sure you’re on my mailing list if you want to get those in your inbox.

I cover my whole process for making this planner from start to finish in my newest Skillshare class on designing a digital planner on your iPad.  Check out the class if you want to make your own!

Free Calendar Template for 2019 | Design Your Own Calendar!

Free Calendar Template for 2019 | Design Your Own Calendar!

I absolutely love designing my own calendars.  I just can’t seem to find the style I want in any store!  I’m sure I’m not the only one, so I decided to give away my calendar template for 2019. (Free for personal and commercial use without credit!)

The template is 11x 17 in, which you can have printed at most office supply stores (or buy a pack of paper and print them at home!). You can use the template to make your own calendar to give away or sell.  You could even change out the image as your work evolves over the year.

I made the calendar in 2 layers, so you can adjust the colors and add your own artwork easily.  If you make a calendar, I would love to see it!  Tag me on Instagram or Facebook @lizkohlerbrown

Don’t want to make your own calendar?  No problem.  You can download and print mine below.  Click on the calendar you want to download below.
