Jomelle Gomez's Blog Posts

 Good Morning everyone. Jomelle here today on the blog and I want to share with you my planner set up. I've always loved the "I Am" collection from early this year and to top it off, the new "Hello" Spiral Planner is a perfect match. I also love the new matching washi tapes.
 
I am using the Hello Spiral Planner and the new Typewriter Floral TN. Since the Hello Spiral Planner is dated and it started this August, I wanted to use it for memory keeping. I plan to decorate the whole planner with the "I Am" collection to keep the same theme.
 
 
I printed the butterfly from the digital elements on vellum. I cut it into the size of my insert and I folded it so that half of the butterfly will go on the front and the other half will be on the back. I used the "loving life" 12x12 paper and placed it under the vellum. As you can see it looks really pretty with the flowers underneath the butterfly.
I added the "hello today" small vinyl planner decal on the vellum. The birds, rose gold hearts and the key are chipboard stickers.
 I decorated the pockets with bits & pieces and snap cards pieces. I added the gold washi to highlight the words.
 I completed my memory keeping for August. I wrote down my work schedule and my family's adventures. I plan to write more detail journaling and some pictures on the weekly layout.
 
 My family and I had dinner at The Cheesecake Factory to celebrate my 39th Birthday. 
I finished decorating the Month of September so all I have to do is write down all my memories.
 I love layering the washi tapes and just adding stickers to decorate my layout. It's very easy to do but at the same time the layering makes it look really pretty.

 I cannot wait to document more memories in my Spiral Planner. Did you noticed that the spiral binding is rose gold? 
Thank you for stopping by and taking the time to view my planner set up. Have a nice day.

Rainbows, Mermaids, Fairies and Unicorns Oh My! So many magical things you can create with this collection that I decided to set up my A5 Robin's Egg planner and my Blush Speckle TN.
 
I wanted my set up to highlight the color yellow so I added the flower ribbon on the side of my TN. I used bits & pieces to decorate my pockets. I placed the "Dream" chipboard sticker vertically using washi tape therefore I can easily remove the letters.
 I always love the side view of my TN. It shows the different layers and how chunky it is.
 I printed a large size fairy (as you can see on the top left) on vellum and laminated it. It will be used as my page marker in my TN. 
I have a really old printer and I noticed that the colors are brighter when I print the images on vellums compare to regular paper.
  I decorated the page before the Month and used it as memory keeping. I added my daughter's picture where she was wearing a "Mermaid Party" T-Shirt and her pink Converse shoes when we went to the Aquarium of the Pacific. What's can be more perfect than that?
 Monthly Layout for August. I used the 4x6 stickers to create my layout.
 Let's take a closer look at my A5 Planner Set Up. I created this adorable dashboard and stuffed my planner pockets with all kinds of magical elements.
Now this is what we planner girls call "Pocket Love"
 Believe that you are something magical.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a magical day. For more inspirations check out my Instagram xoxo_jomelle

As much as I love the "Dream Big" Collection, I wanted to give some love and special attention to the "Lil' Dude" Collection
 
While everyone is going gaga over unicorns, fairies, rainbows and mermaids, I wanted to use something out of the norm. 
The "Lil' Dude" Collection is perfect since most planner girls don't use boys products in their TN's and planners.
 I decided to use my Typewriter Circles Traveler's Notebook. As always, I created covers for my inserts. I love the robots, video games, trucks, fidget spinners, rubik's cube and so much more.
 
I finally put my Stitch Happy Sewing machine to use. I wanted to add black stitching all around the border of each of my covers. I love how it adds a little bit more detail.
The inside of my covers all have pockets. I cut the length of the papers into the size of my notebook insert but I left the height alone, which is 12 inches.
Then I just folded the bottom part of paper over to create the same height of my notebook insert and voila you now have pockets. 
 
I don't plan to permanently glue my inserts so I can change the covers whenever I want to match the theme I'm going for in the future. 
I am planning to use this Monthly insert all year long. Without gluing the notebook insert to the cover, I will be able to take it out and use it in another TN with a different set up.
Having to use it this way, I can use the pockets in the front and in the back to hold stickers, bits & pieces and other elements I want to use later on.
 Carpe Diem now offer Monthly, Weekly, Daily, Dot Grid and Blank inserts. I can use these covers for each of the inserts, or I can just leave it as it is and use it as pockets when I add them inside my TN.
The front cover is so mesmerizing that all I want to do is stare at this whenever I open my TN. 
 I also wanted to add fun elements in my pockets, but at the same time I didn't want it to be too bulky. I decided to sew more black stitching on some of the elements I chose to add in my pockets.
My "Before the Pen" layout for the month of September. 

 I will be adding some journaling and photos to these pages. 
This was my first time sewing on papers. I still need to work on my stitching so it will be straight, clean and precise. 
Although the "Dream Big" Collection would've been perfect to use to create a set up for August since it's my Birthday month, the "Lil' Dude" Collection is just as sweet, if not sweeter in my TN.
Thank you for stopping by and I hope I was able to inspire you to use more boys products in your planners and TN's in the future.
