Rifle Paper Co.
As co-founder and Creative Director of Rifle Paper Co, Anna Bond has perfected her organization routine successfully taking a small business from her apartment to an internationally recognized brand. This transformation started with a dream and long-term plan, but as a visionary, Anna struggled with how to plan the daily tasks. The key was having a planner that had both monthly views for high level overviews and a weekly view for managing daily task lists. Anna's planning approach and fast paced lifestyle was the inspiration for the Paper Source exclusive 2018-2019 Mint Floral Planner.
See more on Anna's tips and tricks for staying organized, an inside look at her Rifle Paper Co. workspace and more on the PS or shop below for some of Anna's favorite planning essentials.
Eva Amurri Martino
Happily Eva After
As a wife, mother, actress and most recently lifestyle blogger, Eva's active schedule must be flexible but structured to ensure she accomplishes key tasks. Her days can be a little chaotic. She stays busy creating new content on her blog with on-site photo shoots, meeting with her team and staying focused to find new inspiration. Other times she is chasing after two young kids or traveling to be with family. For her, having "something physical to hold" where she can see her week at a glance to help prioritize the week ahead is critical for staying organized.

Rosie O'Neill & Josh Resnick
Rosie and Josh understand the value of planning and organization ensuring they can live the sweet life. Much like the packaged candy of their boutiques, planning for this husband and wife duo, is compartmentalized and color coded to keep their family and business running smoothly. Using a calendar that allows them to see travel plans, important meetings and family activities throughout the month ensures they don't lose sight of the big picture in day-to-day activities.
