Summer Florals

Summer Florals

Hi everyone, it is Kelly here today with a new blogpost about the setup of my summer planner. I used the Robin’s Egg A5 planner and the fun ‘Hello Summer’ collection.

Before I started setting up my planner I grabbed the 12x12 papers ‘Oh Happy Day’ and ‘Paradise Found’ which are both filled with gorgeous flowers in fun Summer colors. I fussycut a lot of the floral arrangements.

I used a few of the big floral arrangements from the ‘Paradise Found’ paper as decorations in my front planner pockets. Besides stickers and thickers, I also added a pompom-trim and used border-punches to create fun borders.

The smaller floral arrangements from the ‘Oh Happy Day’ paper, are the main decoration for my front dashboard. Besides these florals I added some white cardstock leaves to make the flowers pop even more. On the middle 3x4 card I glued on a sun diecut, but you could also use a fun summer picture.

This month I bought a Silhouette machine and I used a Carpe Diem pocket cutfile (ID #176368) to easily create a fun pocket for my planner. I cut the scalloped pocket from the ‘Peace, love & pineapples’ paper.

For the front side of the pocket I used the Silhouette software to trace the quote ‘Life is better in the summer’ and let the machine cut it out. I backed the quote up with pink paper. In the pocket I can keep receipts or stickersheets.

I decorated my monthly spread with some left-over floral arrangements from the ‘Oh Happy Day’ paper, washitape and number stickers. This summer, Carpe Diem released some fun planner stamps, which I also used in my monthly spread.

I hope you have enjoyed reading this summer blog! You can find more fun floral spreads in my Carpe Diem planner on my Instagram account createplannernl

Have a nice day!
