Digital Papers ---> Planner Dashboard - Photoshop Template Tutorial

WOW!!! Two days in a row. I'm kind of shocked I've posted twice this week, especially during Holy Week. Since it's one of my favorite holidays, I've got more freebies coming later this week to my newsletter subscribers too, so be sure you're signed up so you don't miss it.

I am totally addicted to decorating my planners and love that I can use digital papers to create my own planner dashboards. It's like hybrid happiness for me. I love hybrid so much that I wanted to make sure everyone knows how to use these templates. I am using Photoshop, but you can do this in Photoshop Elements too.



  • STEP ONE: Open up the freebie template from yesterday's post, and you will see a bunch of rectangles on top of each other. For printing you want to toggle off the layers so that none of the rectangles are overlapping. For this tutorial, I'll be using the a5 layer only.

  • STEP TWO: I have my windows folder open to the right of my screen, there are many ways of opening your file. I like to just drag it from the windows folder over to Photoshop. Then you want to increase or decrease the size so that it's completely covering the rectangle layer. Also, you want to make sure that the paper layer is directly above the a5 rectangle (or whatever layer you are working on)

  • STEP THREE: once you have it the size you want, double click the paper or click the checkmark in the upper right... this will complete the transformation so you can move to the next step.

  • STEP FOUR: now you want to clip the paper to the rectangle and there are a few ways to do this...
  1. while holding down the alt key (option on Mac) hover your mouse on the line between the two layers and you'll see a symbol that looks like two circles merging together, when that symbol appears click your mouse and the paper will clip
  2. use a shortcut - CTRL + ALT + G (Win) | Command + Option + G (Mac) | CTRL + G (PSE Win) | Command + G (PSE Mac) 
  3. select the paper layer, then right click and choose "create clipping mask" 
  4. Layers > Create Clipping Mask

  • STEP FIVE: (optional) You can move the paper around to get it positioned the way you want it. I didn't like the way it clipped the bike so I moved the paper over until I liked it.

  • STEP SIX: print, cut, laminate, hole punch, and put in your planner.

Below are some screen shots of me doing some personal sized and pocket sized dashboards. After doing two personal sized dashboards, I did another one with only two pocket sized.

In the template there are four pockets. Since I use my Filofax Pocket as a wallet, I don't need all four. I just toggled on the top two and left the bottom personal sized one on.

I'm so happy with how they printed out. I can't wait to print out some more and for my laminator to arrive so I can finish them up.

      This is enough for me. I want to write software that anyone can use, and virtually everyone who has an internet connected device with a screen can use apps written in JavaScript. JavaScript Training in Chennai JavaScript was used for little more than mouse hover animations and little calculations to make static websites feel more interactive. Let’s assume 90% of all websites using JavaScript use it in a trivial way. That still leaves 150 million substantial JavaScript Training in Chennai JavaScript applications.
