November 13, 2014


I recently started to decorate my BlueSky planner with washi tape and stickers. I have seen on a couple blogs and YouTube videos where there blogs are dedicated just on their Filofax, KikiK, or Condren planner. So, her is my simple take on decorating my planner.
The cute panda stickers are from Walmart. I used a EK Success flag punch and washi tape to create the banner.  
Here is how I punched the washi-tape banner:
I placed a strip of washi tape on a post-it. With the tape still on the post-it, I used the banner punch. Very slowly peel the washi tape off the post-it. 
The colored washi tape that I wrote on is from Recollections (Michael's). My pens write well on the washi tape and it is the perfect size for my planner. 

The red plaid  and green polka dot washi tape is from Martha Stewart. The lady bug stickers are from Walmart. 
The stickers I used are from Hobby Lobby; aren't they cute?!

Let me know what you think or if you have any questions.
Have a great day!

Organizer Dashboards


Today is my first organizer post. I purchased a BlueSky 5x8 organizer from Target last Summer. I first added a little fox (Create a Critter) in the front cover. 
I created three different page dividers today. First, as the "You are my sunshine" page. I am using it as my page for current pix. 


Second I created a "today" page. I am using it to mark the current day, as well as post any current tasks. 


Third, I created a "create" page. I am using this area for thoughts and ideas for future projects. 


Below, you will find the dimensions for the projects. 

Paper: Joann's Dollar Bin (patterned)
           Joann's Kraft cardstock



Cricut letter measurements:
Cricut font and basic shapes 
heart shape 
C         0.847x0778
r          0.611x0778
e         0.875x0.75    (copy and paste, for two letter e)
a         0.736x0,736
t          0.528x1.25

t          0.472x1.125
o         0.903x0.0819
d         0.903x1.25
a        0.833x0.833
y         0.986x1,361

I first created the letters to match the size above, then I copied it so I would have two copies. I had one copy that I welded with a rectangle and used with Kraft cardstock. The other copy was used to layer on the top of the shapes with a patterned cardstock. 

Let me know if you have any questions. Have a great weekend everyone!
