Aqua Carpe Diem Planner
Hi, I'm Violet and I am a planner Addict! I am so excited to share with you how I have been using my Aqua Carpe Diem Planner. I used several embellishments and packages from Simple Stories to make bits and pieces to add to my planner in a creative way. I am honored and thrilled to be chosen for the Simple Stories Creative Team. I want to say a great big thank to everyone who is involved in this process and allowing me this opportunity. Now, let the planner Fun begin!
One of the easiest accessories you can make or add to your planner are paperclips. They are fun and add character. I used the Carpe Diem and Life in Color self-adhesive Bradz, chipboard stickers and frames, by simply glueing them to a paperclip. You will also spot the Carpe Diem Plastic decorative Clips.
For the Love of pockets! I used the Carpe Diem Snap Pack 3x4 cards to insert in the pockets to add some more color. Tucked safely in the large pocket is one of my favorite Carpe Diem Snap pages. Now this was the fun part, I placed the paperclips I created inside the pockets to give it some extra charm. Speaking of charms, notice the Carpe Diem chain of charms, dangling from the top of my planner, it makes my heart skip a beat.
Lets talk about the Carpe Diem sticky note bookmark. I was so inspired by this that I decided to make some extras. I used the Carpe Diem 12x12 designer cardstock paper and stickers. I traced around the original bookmark and added stickers to the top to work as a tab and laminated them. How cute and adorable and a great way to mark my spot in my planner.
For the second week of February I couldn't wait to decorate my weekly pages. I used the Simple Stories You & Me stickers, and punched hearts out of the 12x12 cardstock paper and glued them to the pages. The Carpe Diem Word Label, icon and calendar stickers are a perfect way to keep track of my appointments, schedules and everyday activities.
Valentines is my favorite holiday because of the colors and what it represents. My pocket spread consisted of You&Me and Life in Color double-sided signature element pieces.
My current planner set up is bright and happy and full of wonderful events. I keep track by using the Carpe Diem word label, icon, calendar and Insta Quote stickers. I lined the bottom of my planner with a thin layer of You&Me scrapbook paper and punched flags out using the same paper to add some character to my weekly pages. I love to outline everything because it makes everything pop and by adding enamel dots to the stickers it adds that special element of planner cuteness.
I truly enjoyed this month and all it has brought me.
My second granddaughter was born and I celebrated my 20th wedding Anniversary. My son will be celebrating his 3rd wedding Anniversary and we will be celebrating my daughter-in-law's birthday this week.
What a joy it is, to be able to plan such special events in my Aqua Carpe Diem Planner. Thank you to everyone who took time to stop by the blog. You can find me on Instagram @imvintagerose and www.imvintagerose.blogspot.com
