Hello Friends! It's Kylie (http://www.instagram.com/paper_sweetpea) with you all again today. I'm so happy to be sharing my latest blog post with you and the insprition behind it. When I first saw the Say Cheese 4 collection by Simple Stories released I instantly had a light bulb moment. There are so many creative ways to use this collection but for me I knew it would be perfect to use creatively in my two children's planner.
Like many parents, I'm kept busy with school, after school activities, sports, appointments etc. For a while I had wanted to keep a seperate planner for keeping everything together, so now with the help of the Say Cheese collection I have it set up all ready. I am using my beautiful Black Speckle A5 planner.
I thought the Happy Kids Bits & Pieces were just too cute and perfect for using throughout my pages, on my dividers and for filling my pockets!
Keeping embellishments and papers in my pockets not only look pretty but it also helps for when you are planning on the go!
I've divided my planner into two sections. One for each of my munchkins! Using my A5 divider templates I created a divider for each of them, layering some beautiful papers. The Fun Words metal dies were perfect for adding a title to each divider in contrasting papers.
I also created a pocket divider for storing some photos in. I cut out one of the 4x6 elements to use as my pocket. It was pretty much a perfect fit for my divider, I only had to trim off a little from the side edges. Using double side tape I added it to both sides as well as the underneath, before adhering to my divider page.
This is my second divider, perfect for my son! I've layered lots of the stickers, chipboard stickers and die cuts. I thought they all turned out really cute!
I'm using my horizontal inserts in my planner and use each day to map out activities I need to remember. I've used the Happy Kids stamps as well as the die cuts for my pages. The stamps would be beautiful with colour added to them but I decided I like the monochromatic effect for my pages.
The Happy Words metal dies were the perfect size for using as highlighted or sub titles in my planning. By using them with various papers really added some nice colour.
My son has a birthday in April so I love how I have been able to record it with the Say Cheese collection.
Thanks for checking out my latest planning! I hope you have found it interesting and inspirational!
