Hi planner friends! I’m back today to give you a quick look at my Persimmon Carpe Diem planner with the Happy Harvest collection.  I made a new dashboard for this month with a photo of my son and using the Grateful Hearts cardstock and added a few decorative leaves I found at the craft store.  They’re all glued down so nothing will fall off once I close the planner

For the monthly spread, I kept it simple and used the Happy Harvest  6x12 cardstock stickers to fill in a few of the boxes and used a small banner punch to add a banner along the top.  

I hope you enjoyed having a look inside of my Persimmon Carpe Diem planner and setup from the Happy Harvest collection.  Happy planning and have a wonderful holiday!


Hi planner friends! I’m back today to show you how I decorated my beloved Robin’s Egg Carpe Diem Planner with the Vintage Blessings collection.  One the left side, I filled the pockets with some of the chipboard pieces, ephemera, 4x6 sticker sheets, and the 3x4 journaling cards from the Vintage Blessings collection.
I also made a new dashboard with a photo of my son that was recently taken.  I use the Gather Together cardstock and added the chipboard tree and a few the Bits n’ Pieces.
For the calendar pages, I mostly used the Vintage Blessings 4x6 stickers to fill in the boxes and added the Grateful washi tape along the inside edges.
Lastly, for the weekly pages, I used a roller stamp from Simple Stories for the to-do’s, added a few word phrase stickers from the 4x6 sticker sheets, and some of the larger stickers are from the Combo sticker sheet.
I hope you enjoyed having a look inside of my Robin’s Egg Carpe Diem planner and setup from the Vintage Blessings collection.  Happy Planning!


Hi everyone! I’m back today to show you how I decorated my month and weekly pages in the new Beautiful 16 Month Spiral Bound Planner with the Beautiful Collection.  I absolutely love anything spiral bound because I can fold it open on itself, so I am thrilled that Simple Stories is offering a Carpe Diem version of their own.
So when you open the planner, there’s a nice planner pocket already attached on the left side and I just filled it with my planner stickers and journaling cards.  I also glued on a couple of the floral Bits n’ Pieces to the pocket to make it more pretty.  On the right side is a “The Planner Belongs to..” page, but I wanted to dress it up with some of the 6x8 cardstock and the typewriter is from the 4x4 journaling elements cardstock.
For the monthly spread, all of the stickers are from the A5 Beautiful Sticker Tablet.  I love the sticker tablet in this collection because it really has a ton of functional stickers and icons, as well as a few sheets of decorative stickers.  To add some more color, I used the Black Speckle washi tape from the Bliss Collection the Dream Big washi tape from the Bloom collection in the monthly boxes.
On the weekly spread, I used the same stickers from the Beautiful Sticker Tablet and a few stickers from the Combo Cardstock Sticker Sheet, such as the typewriter and the scallop trim along the bottom of the pages.  
I hope you enjoyed having a look inside of the spiral bound planner and setup from the Beautiful Collection and I look forward to utilizing this gorgeous planner every week!
