Rainbow Planner - A Bowl Full of Lemons


Today is the “big” day – the launching of A Bowl Full of Lemon’s Rainbow Planner Designs!  I have been a lover of planners since I can remember & I have always wanted to create my own planner.  Today my dreams become reality.  I created 2 different sizes in the calendar bundle. The add on mini kits are in 4 sizes.  A colorful planner always makes planning fun.   I hope you enjoy my brand new “Rainbow Planner”.

Rainbow Planner - A Bowl Full of Lemons 1


The Rainbow Planner pages are digital pdf files that come in 2

8.5 x 11 (Binders & Arc Planners)

5.75 x 8.25 (Filofax A5)


Below is the “Week on 2 Pages” printables. They are included in the “Core Calendar Kit”.


The Core Calendar Kit is $15 &  includes:

1 Cover (4 Options)

15 Months – 10/2013 – 12/2014  (Month on 1 page)

2013 Weekly – 14 Weeks (Week on 2 Pages)

2014 Weekly – 52 Weeks (Week on 2 Pages)

1 Daily (Undated)

1 Notes

Directions for printing



The “Week on 2 Pages” calendar spread allows you to organize your week in full detail.  There is also room above the calendar to add sticky notes, stickers, and post it flags for more planning. Fun!!

Next is the “Month on One Page” Calendar. This calendar is included in the “Core Calendar Kit”.  Below, I share how it looks in my Filofax A5 planner.

Below is one of my favorite pages,  the “Weekly Task List”.  It helps you prioritize your tasks in order of importance.  If you are a busy person (and have a horrible memory) like me, this page is a lifesaver.  This kit is only $5.00.


The “Tasks Mini Kit” Includes:

Weekly Task List

Action Checklist

Notes Page

To Do Page

Weekly To Do (Blank) Checklist

Rainbow Planner -  A Bowl Full of Lemons 2



Below is the beautiful “Menu Planning Mini Kit”.  This kit is only $5.00 and includes:

– Organize your Groceries (Grocery List)

– Organize your Menu (Menu Planning List)

*Planner printables will vary slightly from size to size, depending on dimensions.

I really love how this page turned out.  It’s another favorite.  I use a tear drop sticker to mark the times when we will not be home for a meal.


Rainbow Planner -  A Bowl Full of Lemons 6


I created a “Month on 2 Pages”, for those of you who need more room to write (like me).  This kit is only $7.00 and includes 15 months (30 pages).

Finally, I couldn’t leave out the most “fun” printables… The “Cleaning Checklist” (comes in all sizes for $2.50) and “Cleaning Mini Kit” (comes in 8.5 x 11 for $5.00).  Organize your cleaning schedule with these blank checklists for you to customize.


*Keep in mind, Each planner style will vary slightly, depending on size.


Over the next several weeks, I will be adding several more “mini kits” to my planner shop.  Keep checking back to see what’s new.  Kits will be added weekly.  If you would like to make a kit recommendation, just shoot me an email.  I’m up for suggestions.  Some of the “mini”  kits you will see in my shop, in the coming weeks are:


Finances Kit

Book Lovers Kit

Penpal Kit

Blogger Kit

Home Business Kit

Special Days

Moving Kit

Projects Kit

Travel Kit

Health Kit

Holidays Kit

Exercise Kit

Spiritual Kit

… and more!


I would’ve loved to offer all of these kits to you today, but the planner design process takes a lot longer than I had originally expected. I want the kits to be perfect, so I don’t want to rush the designs.  I want you to be happy. 🙂  Also, we are having a little issue with the files on the A5 planner. As soon as it’s all ironed out, I will let you know when they are available in the shop.  Thanks for your understanding and patience.


If you would like to purchase any of these digital printables for immediate download, visit my shop below.  Please review the details page below, before purchasing.

  2. Vicki Lever says:

    Hi Toni,

    It looks amazing. You are so creative.

    I’m in the UK so am I able to order the A5 once its ready and pay through PayPal?

    Many thanks,

    Vicki Lever

  3. Nikki says:

    You are more than amazing… I am waiting on pins and needles for the finance kit… Question/Suggestion… When you say Home Business- do you mean direct sales? If not, then that is my suggestion… Something us Pampered Chef, Thirty One, Scentsy… Blah Blah Blah people can use 🙂
    Again- Amazing!

  4. Nikki says:

    Congratulations! What a wonderful accomplishment. Everything is absolutely gorgeous AND functional! I’ll let you know how mine works out for me!

  5. Julie Dawson says:

    Hi Toni,

  6. Telesia says:

    Absolutely AMAZING!!! This IS the perfect planner!

  7. Tammy says:

    Hi Toni
    These are beautiful! I have not bought a new printer yet, and want these to be good quality if I print them. How would I go about buying them and then having them printed at Staples? Would there be a copyright problem? I’ve never had anything printed there, so I’m not sure if I can send them the email or how to do it. Can anyone tell me, please?

  8. Barbara Simonds says:

    YAY – I just purchased my Rainbow planner – so excited. Thank you for all the hard work you put into this for us crazy Planner Addicts!!!

  9. Cyndy says:

    Toni, Can I get some instruction on how to print the personal size?

    • Toni says:

      Cyndy, When I printed my personal planner, I printed the weeks and months first, Then I flipped over the paper and printed “notes” on the back of all pages. So I have room to write in extra things each week. 🙂

  10. Kit says:

    Can you make it ( the business kit) so it’s usable for Direct Sales, but not ONLY for direct sales? I’d like to use it for Real Estate, Home Staging and eBay sales.

    Also, is the finance it the next one to come out? That would be awesome.

  11. lisa says:

    Can not wait for the small business kit!!! These are perfect! Well worth the wait!!

  12. Mallorie Hurlbert says:

    Awesome job Toni! Can you tell me what the 6 column titles you have on the weekly 2-page calendar? I am debating customizing but would like to know what is already printed in the kit. Also, you can not buy the kit but add the customization, right? I would need to buy the individual blank pages with customization in addition to the kit. Thanks!

  13. Sheila says:

    Love how they turned out!! Are the calendars available with a Sunday start? Or is that a “customization” and will be $4 extra for each type?

  14. Dieshawn says:

    Awesome, your planner set is designed so colorful and fun. I would like to see a kit for home business also.

  15. Tammy says:

    Is it possible to customize the column headings on the dated weekly calendar? Or are custom headings only available on the undated version? Thanks!

  16. Sarah Beth says:

    Is there a preview of the daily sheets? Did I miss this? Everything looks great-Thank you! Can’t wait for the additional packets that are coming soon!

  17. Stacey says:

    Very pretty! What type of paper would you print this on? Just basic copy ppr or is that too flimsy? Thanks!

  18. Toni, do you recommend a certain colored pen with your organizer so it doesn’t bleed through.

  19. Julie says:

    Hi Toni,
    I love the planner, thank you so much. I tried emailing you, but it tells me I can’t perform that function. Anyway, all my kits opened great, but my menu kit tells me that I have a corrupt file. Not sure what happened. Any suggestions?

  20. Brenda says:

    I like your red polka dotted clear page tab dividers. Where did you get them?

  21. jill latshaw says:

    Does month on two pages come in 5 1/2 x 8 1/2?

  22. Melissa Geittmann says:

    Ok…so we can or can’t buy this already done?

  23. Lezlie Stires says:

    Hi Toni! Could you post a pic on the FB page of the daily page or if it is elsewhere maybe post a link for me? Thank ya’ ma’am!!

  24. Emma says:

    This is very exciting! I have bought the Kikki K Mint Large planner…and would like to use your inserts for it. Can you please, please advise on hole punching!! I don’t think there is a hole punch available that lines up perfectly for it? Any tips, recommendations?

  25. Sheila says:

    If I purchase these today and get them downloaded properly, will I be able to transfer to a new computer after Christmas? Do not want to get in trouble with anything 🙂

  26. Michelle K says:

    Hi Toni
    Love your pages! You have worked very hard to make such a pretty and functional planner! Thank you.
    I was hoping you could show how to use page 3 of the main planner package please. The numbers down the left hand side have me confused. 🙂

  27. Katie says:

    I love your page markers. Where did you get them?

  28. Kristen says:

    I am just wondering where you find all your tapes that you use for your planner. Are there any special places that you go to get them? Specifically the semi-clear tape with the diagonal stripes.

    Thanks so much!

  29. Talia says:

    I wondered if you could add a little more detail on all the “extra” items you show with your calendar, i.e. the wasahi tape, pens and red polka dot marker. I noticed you said the marker is PL, but I can’t seem to find it. Also, what do you purchase at I didn’t see any of your cool stuff shown in the pictures.

  30. Sally says:

    Love the new planner page!!!. Question once we pay for the download will we be able to change the days of the week… Sunday as the first day of the week instead of Monday?

    • Rachel says:

      You won’t be able to change the days but this option will be available for purchase soon. I can’t give an exact date but please continue to check back!

  31. Lori Schneider says:

    I would love to see you create a Homeschooler kit in the future! Can’t wait to see the other kits especially the Spiritual kit that you have planned! 🙂

  32. Lisa says:

    I’m anxiously awaiting the arrival of my brand spankin’ new A5 planner…hopefully your pages are ready for it by the time it arrives from Filofax 🙂

  33. Candy says:

    Can I just tell you how much I enjoy your blog and facebook groups? I love how practical you are and encouraging. I have two girls and sometimes it feels like my life is an explosion but I always leave your blog feeling encouraged. 🙂 I am looking forward to printing off your rainbow planner for my personal size Filofax. 🙂

    • Rachel says:

      Thank you for sharing. On behalf of Toni, we love hearing such encouraging words from our readers!

  34. Sarah says:

    I love this planner! I have a couple of questions. (I apologize if they have been answered above). Would the 5.5 x 8.5 size work with the Martha Stewart Discbound system? Also, this planner can just be printed and spiral bound can’t it? Thanks!

  35. SANDY D says:

    I want to purchase but the planner I use now is the Martha Stewart Line at Stples and it’s the 9.5 x 7.5 and the paper size is 8.5 x 5.5 . I was thinking it would work but wanted to make sure before I purchase. Thanks

    • Rachel says:

      are you sure you’re measuring the MS paper size and not the cover size? The 8.5 x 5.5 should work fine with the MS line.

  36. Crystal M says:

    I tried going to girlofallwork to find the polka dotted page markers but was unable to find them – can you provide a direct link to them – they are awesome! Thanks 🙂

  37. Pens, Toni, Pens……I have trouble with bleeding through. What pens do you recommend?…thank you!..;-)

  38. melissa goodman says:

    ok this might be a dumb question but If I order the A5 size for my planner…when I print do I have to trim the paper to fit the A5 size or is there that size printer paper I can use? If so where to they carry it? thanks!

  39. Michelle says:

    I just downloaded mine, thank you for releasing it so early in October! In anticipation I had already visited Staples and purchased a Martha Stewart mini binder and accessories 🙂 Now to go buy the paper to print it out!

  40. Mary says:

    I Purchased the planner this afternoon and got a receipt from paypal but I haven’t received my printables. How long does that take?

  41. melissa goodman says:

    also how did u get the rounded corners? did u cut them?
    how about a goals kit

  42. tiffanie says:

    Is it an option to have the weekly column lists left blank if I purchase the planner bundle? If possible, I would like to have the weekly pages dated as well as the columns left blank. Are the columns listed the same as they are listed in the pictures if you purchase the planner bundle with no customizations? If you customize the cover & the weekly pages is it $4 for customization or $8? Thanks!! Looks AMAZING!! xxx

    • Rachel says:

      The blank weekly and monthly option will be available for purchase in the coming weeks. I can’t give an exact date but please continue to check back.

  43. Pearl says:

    How do you all print out the pages a home printer or store?

  44. Thanks Rachel about the pens, so helpful!

  45. Toni, these look amazing! You are so talented!!!

  46. Kristin says:

    LOVE these! You are so creative and what a great way to organize LIFE. Thanks for sharing!

  47. Lenora Valadez says:

    I purchased the planner pages. How long does it take for you to email it to me?

  48. shona says:

    hey toni thanks for the awesome planner! i may have missed it but would love to see a mini kit for pets.

  49. Teresa says:

    If I purchase the core kit which has the month on 1 page but would like the month on 2 pages must I pay for the additional kit? or is there a way to do that differently I am not seeing? Thanks so much.

  50. Diana says:

    Hi Toni.
    Just wondering how many planners you use and how? I’ve seen posts for budget planners, Filofax planner, and now you have the rainbow planner. Why so many?? And what about the ” household planner?” Do you still use this? And what about all the school schedules and kids’ activities? I have 10 yr old twin girls into all kinds of stuff that have their own schedules. Do you keep this stuff separate from your planner. Just curious???

  51. Melissa says:

    Is there a Sun – Sat version? The Mon – Sun will really throw me off. Every calendar/planned I’ve had has been Sun – Sat, so I don’t think I’m ready for that kind of change, LOL.

  52. Sabrina says:

    Congratulations! They look wonderful! Good luck with it.

  53. Carmel says:

    Love the planner! Are there plans to make the monthly calendar for the 5.5 x 8.5 a two page?
