More planner decorated pages

Stationery is one of my obsessions. This year, I moved into two different planners (other than my beloved Filofaxes).  I first purchased a Heidi Swapp planner last summer, and then in December the newer version. I loved how beautiful her planners are and even though they are already decorated I still like to make my weekly pages different somehow. I wanted to post some of the weekly designs I have made in case you are looking for inspiration to decorate yours.

1. Let’s start by the monthly inserts. In this one I used my silhouette to cut the title and used this amazing gold washi and fuzzy cut flowers to decorate.

2. March Decor related to Saint Patrick’s Day. You can find lots of pre-made phrases like this one in your silhouette store.

3. I’m feeling all floral now that spring is here. This paper pad from target has become a fave of mine.

4. And finally, here are some of the weekly pages:

Some weeks I use paper scraps to change the color at the bottom of the inserts to change the look of them.

And sometimes just the basic pages turn out great.

But some weeks I made a complete theme that then turns out to be my favorite.

I use stamps to decorate other pages like the monthly dashboard. And yes those paper pad flowers are everywhere!

Hoping this post gave you lots of inspiration to decorate your own planner. Thank you so much for reading!

Completed 2015 December Daily

Happy New Year 2016! I hope that you all had a wonderful holiday season and wish you the best for this new year. After all the holiday craziness I finally had time to sit  down and finish my December Daily album from last year and wanted to share a few pictures with you.

IMG_9989

For this year I used a December Daily album kit from Heidi Swapp that I purchased at Michael’s. I also used a few embellishments from her “Oh What Fun” collection that I found at Joann stores.

IMG_9985

The album in itself is stunning, so I decided to keep the cover simple. I just added a wood cut from Michaels stores and a wreath from an old ephemera pack.

IMG_9991

I really had a lot of fun making this album. I think it captured the essence of the holiday season and all the moments I shared with my loved ones.

IMG_9973

Some pages are really simple as the picture is the main focus.

Yet on other pages, I definitely had fun with embellishments.

Let’s have a merry Disney Christmas!

It is that time of the year in my household where we decided on what theme to use for our Christmas decor. This year we decided in a Disney theme, and to be honest I was hesitant at first, but wow! This was the easiest and most colorful themed Christmas ever!

IMG_9661

 

The whole house is full of happy touches.

 

IMG_9662

We love making everything from scratch. We start by picking a theme and then looking everywhere for free printables and images that we can use, then add traditional Christmas touches to complete the theme.

IMG_9458

For this year we were really lucky that in the Target Dollar spot section there were a lot of different items that helped us create the Disney theme. We found a calendar with awesome images that we used in different areas. We framed the images and oh boy! They looked expensive.

IMG_9657

For the living room shelves, we swapped our original pictures for more pages from the calendar and mini figurines complete them.

IMG_9675

In the dining room we just cut around the images and used them as decor around a Christmas wreath.

IMG_9663

Little touches here and there complete the dining room decor.

IMG_9609

Like this cutout added to paper straws. Adorable!

IMG_9664

Pinterest was of course a life saver. We found awesome free printables that we used to make banners, garlands and ornaments for the tree. They bring so much color to the decor.

IMG_9671

I found this mini chipboard haunted house in the Halloween clearance section and with a little imagination I transformed it into the Mickey and Minnie house. I used some little figurines I found at the Dollar Store to complete it.

IMG_9655

Some Christmas greenery completes my foyer decoration.

IMG_9651

And of course my favorite candle that I feel matches the theme.

IMG_9648

To complete it, all wrapping paper that not only covers the gifts, but serves as a great decoration for under the tree.

Wishing everybody an awesome holiday season and a happy new year! Merry Christmas and we’ll see you in the next post.

DIY holiday planner and free printables

I love everything about the holidays: the decorating, the baking, the shopping and most importantly, spending time with my loved ones. But how can you juggle all the activities around the holidays without getting stressed out? That is the million dollar question. This year I’m trying to plan the more I can in advance so that when the holiday rush comes I (hopefully?) be well prepared.

IMG_9272

I created a simple DIY holiday planner with items I had in my craft room and a set of custom printables that my daughter created for me. The printables are available for you to download and print in case you want to create something similar.

IMG_9254

For my holiday planner I used a simple binder that I purchased from Target for just $5.99. I am loving the 6×8 size of this binder. I find it so portable, that I carry it with me everywhere. I decorated the cover with a wood veneer sign I found at Michaels. It was white but I wanted a more festive look, so I used green paint to change the color.

IMG_9273

The printables include sections for gifts, card mailing, menus, and shopping.

IMG_9276

IMG_9277

I inserted various post-its from the Target Dollar Spot and Michaels to have more room to make notes or lists. They are so adorable!

IMG_9275

I made a few pockets to keep cards, stamps and mailing labels. I also made one to keep recipe cards that I want to try this year.

IMG_9245

IMG_9281

I love using my planners as inspiration. Way before Pinterest and Smash Books I loved to clip photos of stuff that I loved. In this holiday planner I used blank pages to add clippings from magazines with photos of beautiful items that I want to incorporate in my holiday decor.

IMG_9279

On the back of the planner I used a simple plastic pocket where I’m going to keep my receipts from holiday purchases – just in case I need to exchange or return items after Christmas.

IMG_9255

Here is the link for all the printables I used in my planner. Feel free to download them for personal use. I hope you like them!

Thank you for reading and remember, “Keep calm and be merry but plan your Christmas!”
