Today design team member Candi Billman joins us with a ideas on customizing her Life Documented Planner with our Summer Vibes collection & MFT stamps
Candi 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...
I will be using several Hybrid Ink Pads and the following clear stamps designed by Laina Lamb Design:  Journal It-Calendar BasicsJournal It-Top TenOrganized Life Planner and Family Life Planner.

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...just perfect!!!

Here is the backside of 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...

I stamped out "June" from the Journal It-Calendar Basics on every Daily Planner Insert so all I have to do is add the date...
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!!!
