New 2017 Planner

Happy new Year to all! hoping all had a great holiday season with your loved ones. I wanted to share my new planner set up for this year that just started. Here are a few pictures:

You all know by now my love for florals and this year I fell in love with this paper from Pink Paislee (Moonstruck 02 collection). This is what I used for my dashboard, a cut using my Silhouette Cameo and a piece of a Heidi Swapp 3×4 card. This is my mantra for this year: ‘Focus on the good”

I decided to continue using a Heidi Swapp planner as I did last year. I do really like her style, but of course I have to personalize it and make it my own.

I used the usual stationery items I love so much: sticky notes  and pretty pens to complete my set up.

And of course new goodies I picked in the Target Dollar Spot section. I can’t pass a set of donuts erasers right?

Thank you so much for reading and looking forward to continue getting your comments.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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

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!

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.

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.

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!”

My Stationery Collection

Everyone knows I have an obsession with the Target Dollar Spot. I love pretty stationery, especially if it’s at a good price that doesn’t break the bank. After cleaning out my Ikea Raskog cart (that’s where I store my collection) I started taking pictures and wanted to share some of my finds with you.

I have been collecting Target goodies for over a year now and I am constantly rearranging my stash to accommodate newer items. My obsession started with a set of two pretty pens that during this year alone have grown to about 50 pens from different collections.

But not only do I collect pens, I am also absolutely in love with their folders which I use not only to file papers, but to make scrapbook folder albums.

And how about the mini binders? They are perfect for scrapbooking your photos.

There are also the most amazing clipboards. They have been sometimes the inspiration for my home office decor.

Just recently, they have started releasing the cutest pencils. Here are two versions of them:

Aren’t they adorable?

Collections are rotated about every few months. Here is a look at what is currently in stores, just in case you want to start collecting too!

Thank you for reading! Ill see you guys in the next post.
