Maggie Holmes Design Team : Planner Set Up

I've been admiring all the pretty planners out there but I wasn't sure if I have time to sit down and plan my daily events on an actual planner. I didn't dive straight into the trend but waited for a bit. After much thought, I finally took the plunge and decided to decorate this pink planner that was gifted to me by a very good friend. 

Today, I'll be sharing with you on how I set up my A6 fabric planner. Since I don't have the liberty to use this planner everyday, I decided to change things around. This planner won't be used for daily purposes but it'll be for jotting down special dates & part of this will be used as photo journal too.

The fabric on the inside of this planner is very colourful and I decided to tone it down. I took one of the Confetti patterned paper, cut it according to the size where I can slot the paper in and glued it onto the fabric. It definitely suited my style! Then I started to work on my dashboards & some other inner pages with the Confetti + Open Book products. 

TODAY | I'll use it for important dates that I need to pay extra attention to i.e. appointments/ my daughter's school events/ grocery list, etc.

Here are close-up shots of the above page. On the left side, I inserted some fun ephemera die-cuts and also project life cards. These can be used to create a quick little notes for friends or birthday wishes! 

And on the right side, I created these beautiful flowers with the Confetti metal flower cutting dies. Don't you just love those little cute tassels? They are just perfect!

The clear pocket at the back of this planner is perfect for little ephemeras where I can just write short notes and gift it to someone as positive encouragements/ short prayers!

Citrus Twist Kits : 3 To Inspire

Hello there!! This week at Citrus Twist blog, I'm hosting 3 to Inspire challenge... 

To play along with today's challenge and to be eligible to win a small prize from the CTK Store, create a project that includes the following three prompts and upload it to our gallery making sure to include today's date (8/22) in the title.


This week's 3 to Inspire prompts are:

1. Create with at least 5 squares. 

2. Use medium (mist, ink, gesso).

3. Layered stickers.
Here is my take on the challenge using the August Main Kit + Embellishment kit:

I started with positioning the 5 patterned paper squares (measuring at 4"x4"), then I lightly applied gesso all over the 5 squares & sprinkled some mists too. I wanted to create a subtle look so that the papers do not scream too much attention & overpowered the photo. Once the gesso & mist were dried, I adhered the photo at the corner and layered a lot of stickers around it. And finally, I completed my layout with stamp images and journaling. 



Please join in the fun and upload your take on this challenge to our Citrus Twist Fan Page on Facebook, in our gallery, or on Instagram and tag us, @citrustwistkits. I can't wait to see what you do with the elements!

Thanks for stopping by!

Pinkfresh Studio Design Team : August Kit

Hello there! Welcome to my blog :) Today is the reveal day for PinkFresh Studio August kit. And guess what... I got to contribute too! The stamp set & metal dies are my designs. So grateful for this opportunity given by Kinnari, the owner of PinkFresh Studio! 


Here are my projects for August...

                        


First up, I created this card with very simple 'ingredients'. I started off with the patterned paper in Happy Things collection. Then, I adhered the 'joy' in the middle. Followed by the Evalicious snip label at the top and adhered the word 'choose' on it. Completed the card with vellum circle that I punched with my circle punch. 




For this layout, I decided to create with the Happy Things collection as well. If you know my style by now, you will know that I love graphic lines and this layout pretty much shows you that. And don't love the colours on the washi tape, it went pretty well with this bow patterned paper!

Maggie Holmes Design Team : Celebrate

I'm not a very big fan of themed collection but Maggie Holmes Confetti collection is an exception! I love that it does not only limit you to create projects for birthdays but it can be used in so many themes and in so many ways. And today, I would like to share a layout with you. A layout about celebrating little things in life!

Recently, we shifted into a new neighbourhood and we are absolutely blessed since we got here. People are so kind & courteous. For some reason, Katelynn always get goodies from our neighbours and even from the shop owners. I wanted to document this special moment to remember it for a long time.

For this layout, I decided to include the Project Life Open Book edition cards onto my layouts. These cards worked pretty well as patterned papers. Once I'm done with the arrangements of the cards, I adhered them onto a cardstock where I have splattered some mist. Then I completed my layout with adhering beautiful embellishments around the photo & journal on the photo too. This layout certainly did't require a lot of time to create & of course it is a fun to work with too!
