Joining the Planner Wagon!

Hi friends! I decided to hop on the planner wagon! Well truth be told, I've always used a planner but I have never decorated one or used cutesy clips.... my planners have always been straight forward and very plain! 

I ordered my planner from Amazon and after a little bit of research I decided on the Webster's Pages personal planner. It was really inexpensive and came with all the inserts. I actually ordered it as a Mother's Day present to myself but never got around to opening it up until a couple weeks ago. 

I started out using some stickers I've had forever... I have SO many stickers!! I stamped and doodled and messed around with what I might do... I decided to color code my writing by using colored pens. Purple for me, green for my son, pink for my daughter and blue for everyday.

Next I decided to print my own stickers.  I went on Design Space and printed some images from all those Imagine Cartridges that I have on there and also created my own. These images are from Lori's Garden. I liked this coordinated look better. The pages are not very thick and when you stamp with black ink it will show through on the other side. I will try lighter colored inks next time. 

Here are some of the clips I created. The Minions are from Okie Ladybugs blog. I've been following her blog for a long time and she created these adorable Minion SVGs. Her blog is terrific and I really enjoy her personality and crafting advice. I encourage you to go visit her blog. The Hipster Kitty stamp is from My Creative Time. The top bunny is from the Cricut Noah's ABC Animals and the other two bunnies are from the Pet Shop Cartridge. 

Thanks so much for hopping by!

Dog House Thank You Card

Hello crafty friends! After taking a couple weeks off traveling to Texas, and spending time with family, I finally got a chance to make a card yay! I bought the cutest stamps from Jaded Blossom and just couldn't wait to color up this puppy! I wasn't sure what to make so I opened up Design Space and browsed some dog images and came upon this house from the Create A Critter cartridge....

I was inspired to make this shaped card for the cute pup from Jaded Blossom Puppy Dress Up stamps! I made the card base using Kraft card stock and cut it at 5.25" high. I embossed the doghouse with a Sizzix folder called Scallops and Lines. I used some patterned paper for the roof. I distressed all the edges with Tim Holtz Barn Door and Vintage Photo. 

 I cut the sign and stamped and embossed it with this adorable sentiment from the Jaded Blossom Kind Thanks set. I used burlap thread and a metal embellishment to hang it on the house. I'm still building my Copic collection and I used the following colors- Fur:E31, E50, E51, E55, E57, E59 Tongue: R12, R17  Paws and cheeks: R20 Tag: Y17. Finally I added a touch of gold metallic marker to the tag and white Gelly Roll pen for his cheeks. I wanted to keep this card gender neutral so I could give it to a guy or a girl. Hope you like it!

Thanks so much for hoppin by!!
