This month I used the Spellbound collection kit to journal in my black vintage rose floral travelers Notebook.

I added some of the 12x12 Wood & Gingham basic paper to make doiles and stickers to embellish my journaling page.

I absolutely love this collection and it was so much fun documenting some of my most precious memories in my Travelers Journal.


This month I am using the Black Vintage Floral Travlers Notebook with Vintage Blessings collection.

I used the VIntage Blessings digital files to print on acetate paper. It really adds a beautiful touch to your planner or TN!

I did the same with some vellum paper. I just love the sound of it when I turn my pages. I also made some pockets . 

Dashboards are so easy to make and it really personalizes your travelers notebook. You will also notice some doilies I made using the 12x12 paper pads. Thank you to everyone who stopped by the blog!



I can’t believe we are in September. What a wonderful way to start off a new Month and a new week, with the new mint Vintage Floral Personal Planner and the Beautiful collection. It’s a perfect pairing.

I started this month by making personal size planner bookmarks. I chose the Shine Brigh and Follow your heart, because it went so well with the dividers inside the planner.

Next I made a dashboard and filled my pockets with the beautiful bits & pieces and I laminated the beautiful collection stickers and made paperclips. My favorite part of the collection is the hint of black and gray with gold over mint green! It makes me want to run to Starbucks and grab a Chocolate Peppermint Mocha. Can you see the cutest little coffee cups in the pockets! In love.

I had a blast decorating and embellishing my Monthly Calendar for September . I used the Dream Big Washi Tape and Create Beauty Washi Tape.  It made the perfect addition to my view before the Pen. Thank you to everyone who took the time to stop by the blog. The New Carpe Diem Planners are perfection!
