Howdy friends! Layle here - hooray for the weekend! It's Saturday, the last day of our week long Simple Stories & Maya Road Product Swap!
Both design teams have swapped products & teamed up for some great inspiration all week long!
Today creative team member Violet Ballew joins us with a patriotic Carpe Diem planner set up with the All American Simple Set -
Hello everyone, it's Violet and today I will be sharing how I used the All American Simple Set for my July monthly view planning and some journaling in my Doc-it-Journal.
I absolutely love everything about this collection. The stars and stripes, red, white and blue. The paisley print on the flag is so gorgeous. I squealed with delight as I was decorating my pockets and making my dashboard.
How fun is this metal clip & tassel from Maya Road?! The perfect additions to my planner this month!
I decided to plan ahead for July, due to the fact that its like Christmas in July for our family. Most of my family’s birthday are in July. My son and my granddaughter have the same birthday. My nephew and my brother share the same birthday, as well. Once I get all the names on the calendar, I am pretty sure I can fill up most calendar boxes. Lol. We can’t forget 4th of July and all the other fun stuff that happens in the July.
I also wanted to do some journaling in my Doc-It Journal. I don’t like to waste any of my scraps and a good way to use them is in my junk journaling. It’s a fun creative way to use up those extras. I just rip up pieces of left over paper, or use the bits and pieces from my trimmings. I glue them to the pages. I then add some acrylic paint on a gift card and swipe a thin amount all over the page. I used a shimmering white. I also used the Say cheese Roller Stamp, because it had stars and embossed them onto the journaling cards. The stickers were the perfect embellishment to my journaling.
Thank you everyone who took the time to stop by the blog today and for all those that are currently or have served in the military. May you all have a wonderful 4th of July, and God Bless America!
