Hi everyone, Kelly here with a new blog all about my Crafty Girl Travelers Notebook (TN). For a while I wanted to dedicate a TN for all my craft projects. I wanted a place to write down ideas for special projects, spreads and layouts. But also a place to write down measurements, techniques and swatches of all my inks and pens. When I saw the ‘Crafty Girl’ collection I immediately thought about this project and started decorating my Aztec TN.

For decoration purposes only, I filled the front pockets with papers and bits and pieces from the collection. I covered one of my notebooks with a scrapbook paper and added a 3x4 card.

For the opening page in the notebook I made a special spread using the word Create and the ‘Hand made’ paper. I punched different sizes butterflies from the different colors of the paper and placed them in the same rainbow order as the paper. Love the end result!

I used some tab stickers from the combo sticker sheet for the different sections of my notebook. In the first section I will write down all the measurements I need while planning. For example, I made templates and noted the measurements of the monthly and vertical weekly boxes for A5 planner inserts. I attached the templates with washitape on the page. This way I can easily grab them when I need them for a spread.

Lastly, I made an opening page for the swatches of all my color pens, brushpens, inks, etc. The collection has some awesome stickers and ephemera to match this theme, such as pencils and inkpads. In the pages behind this opening page I will swatch all my colors as a reference for use in my planner and projects.

For now, the setup of my Crafty TN is done and I can easily add more measurements, techniques, ideas etc!

Have a lovely day!


Hi everyone, it is Kelly here again with a new blog! This month I am using my favorite A5 Ivory Carpe Diem planner with a new Simple Stories collection I received - Bliss. It is a gorgeous floral collection perfect for decorating these months in your planner.

I used the ‘Enjoy the ride’ paper with butterflies as a background for this decorative dashboard for March. I decorated the page with a few pieces of paper and stickers.

When I start decorating my monthly spread I always first add the numbers (written or stickers), then I write down when I have to work and use a list or sticky notes to write down important appointments that month. When I have that list I start decorating the days with appointments with functional stickers, this time from the Bliss stickertablet. Lastly, I decorate the empty spots on the page with decorative stickers and flowers.

The gorgeous paper ‘Be the good’ from this collection is filled with flowers that need to be fussycut out. I cut about half of the flowers from the paper and layered them in the middle of my weekly spread. After I glued them on the page with a glue stick, I repunched the holes and added a few other stickers on my spread.

I love to use floral pattern papers in my planners and I hope you can find some inspiration in these spreads! Have a lovely day,


Hi everyone, it’s Kelly today on the blog with my planner setup for February. This month I used the St. Patrick’s day Simple Set, the Seasons A5 sticker tablet and the Wood and Gingham 12x12inch paperpad.

I punched some hearts from different color gingham papers and layered them on the ‘This month’ page. In addition, I used the February stickers from the Seasons sticker tablet.

I have a confession: I looooove to make diy paperclips. It is so fun to do, it costs little time and the end result is so cute and functional.

This week I decorated my vertical planner pages with some punched butterflies and stickers from the A5 Bloom stickertablet.

I used a SN@P 6x8 pocket page, punched some extra holes and created a pocket insert for my planner to write down some extra to do’s and things I don’t want to forget.

Thanks for reading my blogpost, have a nice day!
