Scrapper's Delights New June Release

Hello everybody and Happy Friday! Today is Scrapper's Delights New June Release and I am stopping in to share what I have created using their new A5 My Fitness Planner.

I started off by creating a monthly divider and adding the Fitness Honey - Stretch Digital Stamp along with the Gym Time! sentiment.


I wanted to keep these pages rather simple, so I left a lot of white space and added some washi tape from my stash along the top and bottom of the page to add a little something. I colored the "Fitness Honey" using Prismacolor Premier Colored Pencils.


For my weekly spread, again, I kept it simple and added washi tape to the top and bottom of these pages. I used the "Boxed Weekly Plan" from the Fitness Planner Kit to create my weekly spread. All of Scrapper's Delights planner kits are amazing in that they allow you to create exactly what you want as a planner. I chose this layout because I like that the bottom boxes are broken down each day by Breakfast, Snack, Lunch, Snack and Dinner (B,S,L,S,D). It makes it so much easier to record what you consume and also helps in daily meal planning. 

The top boxes are large enough that I was able to break down the week using different icon stickers to help me determine and remind me of the different activities that need to be performed. For instance, the scale on Monday, reminds me that I need to weigh in. The sneakers make me realize that I need to get my walking in for that day. And the heart shows the days that I need to fit in a cardio workout. And don't forget that water intake!! LOL! I added water droplets to each day so that I can record my water intake and make sure to stay on track.

The Printable Fitness Planner comes with several options for you to create a Front/Back Cover, Belongs to Page, Yearly Overview, Month Dividers, Yearly Measurements, Monthly Weigh In page, Weekly Hydration Page, Step Tracker, Calories Tracker, Goals and Progress Page, Monthly Tabs, Monthly Planner, Weekly Planner, Exclusive Digi Stamp Set and Stickers. 

Thank you for stopping by to check out my Fitness Planner spread. Have a Fabulously Crafty Day!!!

Aloha My Friend...

Good evening crafty friends!!! Stopping in this evening to share a sweet summer card I created using the "Aloha Pineapple" file from KaDoodle Bug Designs.


I have been wanting to play with this file for a while now and finally got some free time to do so. KaDoodle Bug Designs has so many new summer themed files available and I am so excited to begin all of my summer themed projects.

For this card, I started off with uploading the svg file to my Cricut Design Space, re-sized my image and cut out all of my pieces. I then inked each piece using Tim Holtz Distress Inks. I used Art Glitter Glue to adhere them together and then added some highlights using a white gel pen. To finish off my happy little pineapple, I added some stickles (cause who doesn't like a bit of glitter here and there?!?!), to areas of the leaves, the center of the flower and on some of the skirt leaves. I also added glossy accents to the sunglasses (although it is difficult to capture in this pic, sorry!!)

As I set the pineapple off to the side to dry for a bit, I began to work on my card base. I cut the base of my card to measure 4.25 x 5.5 out of 110lb. Neenah Solar White Cardstock. I then used a piece of Tim Holtz Distress Watercolor Cardstock and ink-blended my Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Inks using my blending tool. These inks are absolutely amazing and beautiful to work with. Once the panel was dry, I ran it through my Big Shot using my Fancy Frames die from Craftin Desert Divas.  I set my panel in my Misti and using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink, inked up my stamp sentiment "Aloha my friend" from the Jaded Blossom "Be a Pineapple Stamp Set". I adhered the panel onto my card base, adhered my pineapple paper piecing and to finish it off, added three small drops of Nuvo Crystal Drops.  

I absolutely love how this card turned out and can't wait to send it off to a special friend. 
Below is a list of products and supplies used to create this card:


Bazzill Cardstock

Neenah 110lb Solar White Cardstock

Tim Holtz Distress Watercolor Cardstock

It's a MOO-velous Week!

Hello there everybody! Stopping by today to share a planner spread I created in my mini Happy Planner. Last week was very busy with all the end of year events and happenings taking place at my children's schools and it was my daughter's 13th birthday as well.  She LOVES and has a fascination with cows, so I decided to decorate my weekly spread in honor of her for her birthday.


Craftin Desert Divas has the perfect digital cow images for this very occasion too. I used the "Birthday Cow" digital stamp as well as the "Over the Moon" digital stamp for my layout. I colored my images using Prismacolor Premier Colored Pencils. I also used the "Plan It Out" stamp set along with the "Sweater Weather" stamp set to create my daily bullets and important reminders/errands that I needed to attend to. 

Below is a list of the supplies and products used to create this spread:





ReCollections Washi Tape
StazOn Ink - Azul
Prismacolor Premier Colored Pencils


Thank you all for visiting and as always,

Scrapper's Delights - June Inspiration Planner Event

Hello everybody!! Today is the June Planner Inspiration Event over at Scrapper's Delights. For my project, I have created a weekly planner spread using the fabulous A5 My Basic Planner along with some amazing digital images.


I used the "Genie 4" digital stamp together with the "Genie Sentiments 3" to decorate my planner pages. These images are simply amazing!!! I colored my images using Prismacolor Premier Colored Pencils.


For the dates on my layout, I used the star image from the "Genie Sentiments 3" file and resized it to fit nicely on the top. I used some numbered stickers from ReCollections to add in my dates. 


I love the design of the "Make a Wish" sentiment and wanted it to look as if it were coming out of my Genie's lamp.  Although I really wanted my beautiful Genie's to stand out, I wanted to add a touch more color to my spread. I added some gold glitter washi tape around the edges of my pages. I then used my Prismacolor Pencils on the stars and a few of the boxes. 

I hope that you enjoyed my inspiration project for today!! Below is a complete list of the products and supplies used to create this planner spread:




ReCollections Glittered Stickers
ReCollections Glitter Gold Washi Tape
Prismacolor Premier Colored Pencils

You Color My World

Hello everybody! Today I am sharing a project I created for the May Social Media Mood Board Challenge over at Craftin Desert Divas. This Month's Mood Board is full of bright bold colors and inspiration. And there is still a few days left to get your projects uploaded for a chance to win some fabulous prizes.


For my project I was inspired by the colors on the Mood Board, and so I decided I was going to create a Monthly Divider for my Mini Happy Planner. 


I started off by die cutting my rainbow and clouds using the Rainbow Die from Craftin Desert Divas. I used ReCollections Card stock to cut my rainbow colors and I used vellum for my clouds.  I used one of the cute little gnomes from the newly released Weather Gnomes Stamp Set. I colored her up with my Prismacolor Premier Colored Pencils and sat her on top of my rainbow. I stamped the sentiment, "You color my world" (also from the Weather Gnomes Stamp Set) on the bottom cloud. Of course I had to add some sparkle to my project, so I used Craftin Desert Divas Shimmer Sequins along with some Stickles, which as you can see, were added to my clouds.

Below is a list of the products and supplies used to create this project:




Memento Tuxedo Black Ink
ReCollections Cardstock
White Vellum Paper
Prismacolor Premier Colored Pencils
White Gel Pen
Stickles

Scrapper's Delights New May Release Event

Hello everyone & Happy Friday!! It is time for a New Release over at Scrapper's Delights and I am here today to share with you the newly released Printable Horizontal A5 Planner Insert.


This kit is amazing and offers so many different options to choose from in creating a planner spread perfect for your own needs. 


For my planner spread, I kept it rather simple. 


I started by adding some washi tape at the top and bottom borders of each page.  I then used my Fiskars Script Font Clear Stamp Set along with my ReCollections Color Splash Ombre Ink Pad to stamp the days of the week onto my spread. 


I also used a small flower stamp and stamped it onto some of the days as my "bullets", so that I will be able to write down some important reminders to keep track of during the week.  

My absolute favorite part of this spread (and most fun to color) though is this gorgeous digital stamp, entitled, "Fairy Glades V2". Is this digital scene not the best?!?! I absolutely adore this fairy standing atop of her mushrooms. I colored this digi and the flowers throughout the spread using Prismacolor Premier Colored Pencils. I also used Faber-Castell pastels (light blue) and blended it around my digi image and around my flowers in hopes that it would help make my images "pop" a bit more. 

Overall, I am very satisfied with how this planner spread turned out and I can't wait to create some more spreads to share with you all. 

Below is a list of supplies and products that I used to create this layout:



Prismacolor Premier Colored Pencils

Faber-Castell Soft Pastels

ReCollections Color Splash Ombre Ink Pad

ReCollections Washi Tape

Fiskars Script Font Clear Stamp Set

Ladybug Love Planner Spread

Hello everyone & Happy Friday!!!! I am back again today to share another weekly planner spread that I created using the adorable new "Ladybug Garden" stamp set from Craftin Desert Divas. These stamps are now available in the shop for purchase.


This layout was created in my ReCollections Planner and I love how bright and cheery it turned out. I started by adding some fun and colorful washi tape to my pages. I then stamped my dates onto the pages using my clear basic font stamp set from Fiskars and my ReCollections Color Splash Ombre Ink Pads.


My adorable ladybug bears were all stamped using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored with Prismacolor Premier Colored Pencils (currently, my absolute favorite coloring medium). 


I used a white gel pen to add some small highlights to each image and also added some Nuvo Crystal Drops to the dots on the wings of my little ladies to give some added interest. I used the small flower stamp from the set to create bullets on a few days during the week when I know I will have important things to do. 

Below is a list of the supplies and products I used to create this planner spread:

Ladybug Garden Stamp Set
Ladybug Garden SVG Stamp Outline

These "Weather Gnomes" are just too cute!!! 


All of my images were stamped using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored with Prismacolor Premier Colored Pencils.


I have two of my weather gnomes sitting on some clouds, which were die cut using the Craftin Desert Divas "Rainbow Die". Of course I had to add some sparkle to my pages, so I used Stickles on each of the clouds.


For my planner clips, I used some of the smaller stamps and sentiments from the "Weather Gnomes" set. I used the rectangular die from the "Plan It" die set along with the sun from the "Scene Builders" dies. Again, all of the images are colored using Prismacolor Premier Colored Pencils. And to add some sparkle, I used some sequins from both the "Citrus Bliss" and "Sweet Sixteen" sequin mixes from Craftin Desert Divas. I also added some small black rhinestones to one of the clips as well. 

Below is a complete list of the supplies and products used to create the planner spread and clips:

Weather Gnomes Stamp Set

These stamps are part of their new May Release and will be available for purchase on Thursday, May 25th at 3PM EST.


I adore ladybugs and so I just knew that I had to have this stamp set and add it to my collection. Just look at how super sweet these images are!!


All images were stamped using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored using my Prismacolor Premier Colored Pencils. Some images have Stickles added to them, cause who doesn't like a little bit of sparkle!?!?!


I used one of the small flower stamps included in the set throughout my layout as my bullet points for the week. I adore the sweet sentiments that are also included in this stamp set, and so I used my favorite, "Plant smiles, grow laughs, harvest love" throughout the Weekend area of my spread.

I am happy with the outcome and look of this spread. It just screams Summer to me and I am so ready for Summer to begin!!

Anytime is Coffee Time...

Hello everyone!! Who doesn't love a good cup of coffee? I am a coffee fanatic and so, with a fresh, hot cup in hand, I have created a coffee spread in my HP mini to share with you all today.


Craftin Desert Divas has some amazing coffee themed stamp sets that are perfect for the look I wanted and are also a lot of fun to use too. I used the "Got Coffee" stamp set and the "Coffee Break" stamp set for this planner spread.


I absolutely love the coffee stain stamp that is included in the "Got Coffee" stamp set. I stamped it all over the pages using Color Box Chalk Ink in Chestnut Roan. For the daily bullets I directly stamped the coffee bean from the "Coffee Break" stamp set onto my pages using Color Box Chalk Ink in Expresso. 


I colored all of my images using Prismacolor Premier Colored Pencils.


And of course, what would a planner be without some adorable coffee themed clips.  The white and teal coffee cup planner clip from Craftin Desert Divas is probably one of my favorites that they have available in their shop (although I do really love them all and need to collect the other colors too, lol). The heart with coffee cup clip was made using the coffee cup die which is included in the Inside Scalloped Square Die set and the heart die from the Mini Shaker Clip Die set. I used the Cream and Sugar 6x6 paper pad to create this clip as it matched perfectly with my theme and overall look I was going for.

Below is a complete list of products I used to create this planner spread:

Color Box Chalk Ink - Chestnut Roan
Color Box Chalk Ink - Expresso
Memento Tuxedo Black Ink
Prismacolor Premier Colored Pencils
