I’m using the fun PaperHouse/ML planner.   The first week I would say was just basic.  I used some washi tape, stickers, and sticky notes.

 Week two I experimented a little more.  I did a little doodling around the outside and adding some stamping in the corners.

I have decided that I like to put washi tape across the center of it to divide my day into morning and afternoon….not sure how others are doing it but that is the way i’m rolling right now (that may change)  I have also started writing positive vibes at the bottom to get me through the week!!

I got a stash of Paper House goodies and picked out these fun little clips….love that added little embellie to my planner.

Quick Ten Minute Planner Clips Using Washi Tape

Caitlyn Storm Circle

Hey, everyone! Hope you’ve had a wonderful start to spring so far! It’s Caitlyn back on the blog to show you how to make some really easy planner clips! Want to know how easy? They should take 10 minutes or less! Wow.

Planner clips are such an easy way to add personality to your planner. Those within the traveler’s notebook community truly take their planner clip game to the max. Often times you’ll see photographs of just the top part of their notebook, showing off all of the beautiful clips they’ve collected. The best part of these particular clips is how different you can make these – just by using washi tape!

Planner clips using washi tape

There are several steps to take to get to the point shown in the photograph above. The first step is to take thin cardboard, like from a cereal box. Once you have your chosen material, you can start to create your diecuts. Place strips of washi on your material in any order that you would like.

Depending on how you’re cutting your diecut, these next few steps will change. For this particular project, I used a stamp and diecut set. I stamped my design first and then moved along to cutting the diecut. It’s very important to line your diecut up with the stamp. If you’re not using a stamp you can proceed to just cutting the diecut.

Now we can start assembling your clips. Take one of your die cut pieces and lay it face down, blank side up. Use your Xyron tape runner to apply adhesive to the bottom portion of your die cut. Then place your paper clip down on the adhesive.

Instead of using the tape runner for the other half of the clip, I used my Xyron Sticker Maker. Using Xyron’s Sticker Maker machine allows me to add adhesive to pieces quickly and accurately. To add adhesive place your element into the machine, keeping the design side up. Then you will pull the adhesive paper on the other side to help guide the object through the machine. The Sticker Maker helps you make sure that you have adhesive on the full design. This helps to create a nice seal on your two diecut pieces, making sure that your paperclip will stay in place.

In this photo you can see the first clip completed. I very carefully matched the shape to the second diecut and then pressed the two pieces together, creating a sandwich. I then repeated this process two more times to put together the other two clips.

Now you should have your completed planner clips! The total time from start to finish each clip was around 10 minutes, making this particular project not only easy, but fast.

I hope you all enjoyed this super easy project! I hope you all start to create your own planner clips to add to your planners.

XOXO,
Caitlyn

Busy Making Plans with my Kawaii Planner

Shannon Circle2

Hi everybody! Shannon joining you today and I’ll warn you in advance, this post is picture heavy! I am going to admit something to you, I was intimidated by planners. It was not something I wanted to embrace, I didn’t think I would be able to fill up pages with details of my life, my family, our day to day. On the contrary, I have been busy making plans with my Kawaii Planner.

I honestly didn’t think my days added up to that much. I am a housewife, I don’t have a job that I leave the house everyday, I felt kind of silly writing down…laundry. As I began recording things I needed to do, had to plan for and appointments..I saw that my days were actually filled, they were important, they did matter to the people I am surrounded by. There was no reason for me to feel like my days didn’t matter because they weren’t filled with important meetings and deadlines. My meetings, emails, deadlines are important too. Everyone has a role in this fabric of life. The point here is use your planner, enjoy filling your planner, realize that comparison is the thief of joy and know your days matter whether you’re a mom or a businesswoman, or both!

Paddy and the boys are in full football mode and right now, it is all we know, and that’s ok. I’m the Meal Mom, and I am so happy to take care of the boys each week and the planner helps me keep everyday moments recorded and organized.

PHP PLANNER POST AUGUST CLOSE UP 2, Shannon M

Paper House Productions planners and accessories…what can I say about them? The real question is…what can’t I say about them?!?!? They are simply amazing. They are easy to use, they coordinate with other lines and meld perfectly together. You can layer them or you can let them stand alone.

Make EveryDay Great Memory Planning

Hello everyone! TinaGale here and I’m so excited to be sharing the new Make Every Day Great planner with you today.

make-everyday-great-agenda

When I received it I knew immediately I wanted to try my hand at keeping a memory journal. With the great cameras on phones now I have a surplus of photos documenting our everyday life that usually don’t make it onto a page because they’re just not quite worthy of that. That’s where the planner comes in. It’s perfect to document those daily tasks we do.

If you would like an up close look at all the features of the planner and coordinating embellishments check out my Paper House Planner Unboxing video.

PH Planner WM

Supplies used:  Make Every Day Great Planner, EveryDay Moments Puffy Stickers, Live Bold labels, Live Bold Planner Stickers, Bohemian Friends Clear Stickers,  Live Bold Epoxy Stickers,  Everyday Moments Rice Paper Border

Here’s a look at the full process and some of my thoughts on how I’ll be working in this planner to document our days with photos and sometimes maybe just words.

Memory Planner Process Video

The little section to the side of each spread to document notes, goals, and what I’m thankful for is one of my favorite features of this planner. It’s going to be awesome to look back over all the pages throughout the year.

And just look at all the beautiful coordinating products including puffy stickers, rice paper stickers and I even pulled out some of the Our Family collection.

Thanks for coming along with my new journey into the Memory Planning and I hope you’ll give it a try too.

May Planner Spread using Everyday Moments Planner

KattyCircle2Hello friends, Katty here to share another monthly planner spread. I decided to work on my May monthly spread. I use this planner to keep track of all of my Crafty Commitments so I thought I’d get a head start decorating it. I am working in my Everyday Moments Planner. I recently received a ton of awesome planner stickers from Paperhouse and I was dying to use them. I have a video sharing all of the awesome Planner Stickers and Paperhouse goodies I received. If you’d like to watch Click Here. I decided to use one sticker set, the Live Bold Planner Stickers. This set of stickers coordinates with the Live Bold Planner but can be used in any of the planners.

May Planner Decorating Supply List:

I began by adding a little bit of color to my spread. I picked out some gelatos in coordinating colors and painted in some of the days. I used a tiny bit of water and a small flat brush. Since I only used a tiny amount of water the color did not seep through nor did my pages warp too badly. I also like that the color is translucent, so you can still see the number for the days that I had stamped using some navy ink. This look can be achieved by using any type of watercolors. The key is to use minimal water. If you don’t own watercolors and want to add pops of color, you can also cut down patterned paper to fit the squares.

Once dry, I used pens in coordinating colors and added faux stitching around the boxes and created a second faux stitch square inside of the boxes. I also watered down three of the gelatos and added fun splatters throughout the spread.

Then came the fun part. I used the Love Bold stickers all around the page. I added some beautiful florals on either side of the month and added two additional floral clusters on the bottom of the left side and the top of the right side along with some arrows and fun sentiments.

0000FullSizeRender

I added some banners on the right side edge for some additional interest. Then I took some more of the small flowers and little starts and scattered them around. I scattered them in a way that it looks like the flowers are coming out of the bottom right hand side and are exploding up and onto the page on the left.

I love how this turned out. I can’t wait to start filling in all of my crafty commitments.

Thanks so much for stopping by today. XOXO -Katty
