Today design team member Candi Billman joins us with a ideas on customizing her Life Documented Planner with our Summer Vibes collection & MFT stamps
here today to share something really exciting with you all!!! I am using some awesome planner stamps and inks from My Favorite Things
(MFT), inside my Life Documented Planner...PERFECT combo!!!!!! I am also using the latest Collection from SS called Summer Vibes
and let me tell you it is the CUTEST!!! Using scrapbook goodies inside my planner is so much fun & then adding planner stamps to the mix...this is exciting!!! Let me show you...
Ever since January I have had that same transparency (dashboard) in my planner that has 2015 on it, which I love!!! Then behind that I usually put a decorative piece of scrapbook paper behind that to show through...I used the Summer Vibes 6x8 "Hello Summer" Journal Page from the SN@P! Journal Pages
this time around. It's fun to change it out from time to time!
Let's get to the month of June!!! From the same SN@P! Journal Pages
as mentioned above, I grabbed one of the Die-Cut Pages and made that into a little intro to the Summer months! On the outside I added stickers from the Collection Kit
and when you open up the tab, I have added more stickers along with stamping out the Summer months (June, July and August) from the Journal It-Calendar Basics
clear stamp set. I then stamped out "Top 10" from the Journal It-Top Ten
clear stamp set...I thought it would be fun to fill out my Top 10 activities/events for Summer :) Once June is over with, I will move this Die-Cut Page over to July and then the same for August...
On the left hand side you can see the back side of that Die-Cut Page. On the right hand side, that page was empty so I grabbed one of the 12x12 Element Sheets from inside the Collection Kit
and cut out those words and adhered them down.
I have the Monthly Dividers
in my planner and June is a navy blue color. In my opinion, that color just didn't really go with the colors of the Summer Vibes Collection so I had to do some cutting!!! I cut out the calendar grid from each side (left and right) of the Monthly Dividers. Next I grabbed two different cardstock papers...1 from the Simple Basics Kit
and 1 from the Collection Kit
. I used the June Monthly Dividers and cut out NEW Monthly Dividers, using the 2 cardstock papers...ahhhh, much better :) :) :)
Here is June all loaded up with Summer Vibes and My Favorite Things!!! As far as the dates go...I added a few number stickers here & there and then for the other dates, I used a very light grey marker to fill out the rest.
Time to get stamping!!! I used the little shoe from Family Life Planner
for the days that I want to hit the gym in the morning before work. For my design team projects, I stamped out "Project" from Organized Life Planner
I grabbed the Organized Life Planner
clear stamp set once again and stamped out "Grocery" for grocery days and "Bank" for pay days!
In case I needed a little more room to jot down some notes, I added that cute Die-Cut Page from the SN@P! Journal Pages
Here is the backside of June...it originally was empty, but not much longer after I jazzed it up a bit!!!
Getting into my Daily Planner Inserts
...I knew right away I wanted to punch a few holes in the "hello" transparency from the Collection Kit
and place that in front of my current day. I stamped out the "notebook paper" from theJournal It-Top Ten
clear stamp set, trimmed it out, stamped out "Remember" and adhered it down to the front of the transparency. I did the exact same thing to the back side! Now I can jot down REAL important stuff and move that transparency sheet from day to day...
Here is a little peek into June 1st...look at that, I get to relax at 7pm :) yesssss!
WOW...was that fun or what?! I had a blast combining two AMAZING companies in this project!!! Stamping in my planner is a lot of fun :) I hope you enjoyed this post and grabbed some inspiration from it!!!
