If you want to learn how to make printables, you're in the right place. For the past 7 years I've self-taught myself how to create all types of printables from printable planners, to planner stickers, to daily planners, weekly planners, monthly calendars, planner accessories such as bookmarks as well as home organizing printables, chore charts, planner covers, recipe binders and computer screensavers to name a few!

You can find my printables in my Etsy shop, All About Planners which has over 20,000 sales. I also blog about all things planning at

From the requests of my blog readers, I've put together this beginners' course to teach you how to get started making your own printables using common software: Microsoft Excel. No prior graphic design (or Microsoft Excel) experience is required.

Who this course is for:

  • Bloggers that want to learn how to make their own printables to offer as an opt-in for their readers
  • If you need a planner to organize a specific area of your life: college, direct sales, kids, money management, health, medical, cleaning, blog, business, family documents etc.
  • Anyone that is frustrated with not being able to find that exact planner they want
  • Anyone that wants to learn how to make their own planner printables
  • If you want to make budgeting spreadsheets and have Excel do the math for you!

Feedback from a student enrolled in my other printables ecourse:

"This course is a must have for anyone wanting to make printables, I am in no way technical, and have avoided Photoshop in the past because of how difficult it looks! But Rachael breaks it down step by and shows you how easy a program it actually is. She provides all the information you need to navigate Photoshop and to create all types of printables and I think she probably should be charging a lot more for this course! Many thanks Rachael, you've made it possible for me to make beautiful printables for my readers!"

Software Requirements
The tutorials in this ecourse were made in Microsoft Excel version 2016. You will need Microsoft Excel. Earlier & later versions can be used - the menus may appear slightly different.. The tutorials will also work with WPS Office 2019 (which is like a free version of Excel): You can do some of the tutorials using Google Sheets which is a free online tool. However, Google Sheets does not have the full capabilities of Microsoft Excel.
