Woooohooo!! It’s my favourite time of year! I absolutely love everything about summer, I am certainly my happiest when the sun shines, and this Hello Summer collection by Simple Stories definitely captures all the aspects of Summer that make me smile!
There’s flamingos, cacti, flowers, fruit, sunglasses and super bright cheerful colours!!
I’ve stuffed my pockets full of papers from the collection, a few doilies, paperclips and made a ‘flamingo’ tag!
In the large side pocket I’ve popped a few papers to tie it all in and slid a flag paperclip which I made which holds them together.
For the dashboard I’ve used the rainbow stripe and then layered one of the 3x4 elements from the 12x12 cut apart sheets over some of the dotty paper and another doily, a flower & sunshine from the chipboard pieces and I’ve cut out a flamingo from one of the sheets from the 6x8 paper pad.
I used the 12x12 collection kit to make some dividers, which now with the divider templates and the CarpeDiem punch is so quick and easy. I then used the ‘Tabs Sticker Tablet’ and ‘Clear Tab Stickers’ ...perfect!!
I couldn’t help but play around with this gorgeous collection, you’ll see here I’ve decorated using an assortment of papers I’ve cut up to make a sunshine and of course I couldn’t resist adding another flamingo!!
I wanted to highlight the zipper pouches by CarpeDiem which fit inside A5 planners, I don’t think they get enough recognition! For me, they are utterly awesome!! Every planner I have, you’ll find includes one! That’s because they are perfect in so many ways, you can add receipts, bits & pieces (like I have here), stickers, journaling cards, photos...I could go on and on! Basically, if you haven’t got one...then you need one!...or two, three, or more!
I hope you’ve enjoyed another little look through my planner, which I forgot to mention is the new A5 Mint Blossom, using the fabulous Hello Summer collection. See you again next month, hopefully I’ll have something to show you which will be full of unicorns!! ;)
