Last Week in My Gold and Sky Blue Color Crush Planners

Well, it's March, but it's still winter. I am so ready for flip flops and sun dresses, but Mother Nature has different plans. We had delayed openings for ice on Monday and it looks like a big storm is coming our way today. Make. It. Stop!



Today I'm sharing my Gold and Sky Blue Color Crushes. Someone commented last week asking why I use 2 planners. I do it because they serve very different purposes.

Here is my Sky Blue planner from last week. This is the planner that stays on my scrap table. I write down my crafty to do lists in it, I journal a bit about what I've done each day, I keep track of the stories that I want to scrap or include in my Project Life, I add sketches, quotes, etc. You get the idea.


 This past week I added flowers and butterflies to help make it feel more spring like. I also started using more stamps! So far I'm loving them. I used planner stamps from Waffleflower and Sweet Stamp Shop.

Next up is my gold planner. This is the planner that goes everywhere with me. I carry it in my purse along with my gold folio. (scroll down a bit to see the photo of the two of them together). This is the planner in which I write my personal schedule, to do list, cleaning list, meal planning/groceries, etc. 

I used lots of goodies from Pink Paislee's Rouge collection on here. The 'beautiful' page clip is actually a chipboard piece. I hot glued it to the paper clip.


Finally, I wanted to share my February month at a glance page. I hadn't been decorating these before, but decided to do so and love how it turned out!

Well. that's it for today. Let me know if you  have any questions and thanks for stopping by!

Coffee Loving Cardmakers Blog Hop

Recently I became a part of a fun and inspiring group - Coffee Loveing Paper Crafters. It's amazing, there are tons of other people out there who share my passion for coffee AND paper crafting - especially when they are combined. Anyway, I decided to take part in the spring blog hop. I created a tag using my current favorite color - GOLD! (Don't they call coffee black gold? Or is that oil? LOL)


The adorable stamps came in March's Gossamer Blue's Life's Pages kit. I LOVE them.

 I picked out some more of my favorite goodies. The cloth scrap and gold flair badge are from my Pinkfresh Studio January kit. The stars are Pink Paislee and the washi is Crate Paper.

I hung my tag on a basket that sits on my scrap table. It makes me happy just to look at it.

Thanks so much for stopping by and be sure to take a peek at the other projects in the blog hop. You can find them on the Coffee Loving Cardmakers blog.

Crushing on My Gold Color Crush Planner

Hi! Thanks for stopping by! Last week I pulled out my Gold Color Crush and it is definitely love at first sight. It's going to be hard for me to put this baby back on the shelf. :)

Since the planner has pink on the inside, I decided to go with a pink and gold theme.


How fun is that??? I love it. The gold washi is from Michael's. And the pink is Queen and Company. The tag is from a Maggie Holmes die cut set. I added the gold stickers (glitter- Teresa Collins, puffy hearts- Studio Calico) as a nice touch of bling. AND, I started adding stamps to my planner. I recently purchased some new ones and am having fun incorporating them into my week, The tassel is from Haute Pink Fluff on Etsy. And I made the bow clips using bows I got from Freckled Fawn. I love how they turned out!

Next up is last week in my Sky Blue planner. I decided to pull out some cute Kawaii stickers to go along with the owl stickers I had in my stash. Again, I did lots of stamping! Also, I'm still LOVING my Frixion pens. Best purchase ever. Here is the link to the set I love.

Well, that's it for today. Can't believe that February is done and that we are into March. Though a big part of me is doing the happy dance. We're that much closer to the summer!  Only 85 more days until Memorial Day. I'm counting down with an app on my phone. LOL.

Thanks for stopping by!

Webster's Pages Sky Blue Color Crush

Last week I pulled out my Sky Blue Color Crush planner. I liked it when I received it, but once I started using it, I decided that I really loved it. The color is so soothing and it coordinates so well with lots of things. :)

The supplies I automatically went to were the stickers and chipboard from Webster's Sweet Routine line. LOVE them. ;) They are perfect with the Sky Blue.


Here is how my spread looked when I finished it off. I created the clips by hot gluing the cameos and bows to the paper clips. The striped washi is Doodlebug. I forget about the woodgrain one, though.





 This week, I am using my gold Color Crush and Folio and am absolutely in love with it. Here is a peek at the supplies I used. I'm trying to use more stamps in my planner. The little inks fit nicely inside the folio.
Thanks for stopping by. Have a great day!

This Was Awesome

I'm sitting at my kitchen table enjoying a beautiful Snow Day off from school. Dare I say that this might be my favorite part of being a teacher. LOL. Just kidding! But, it's definitely one of the best perks.

I finished off a layout this morning using the beautiful On My Desk collection from Gossamer Blue. Love the bold colors. They are really versatile. I decided to use this line to scrap some pictures that we took at a local park last month. Our family really enjoys hiking and nature, even in winter. Here's my page....


I added lots of cute little elements around and under the photos.

I think that the puffy stickers are my favorites! They are so cute and the sayings are really fun.

I used a photo pocket to tuck this picture into and added a chipboard frame from Gramercy Road onto it.


Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek! The On My Desk collection is available in the Gossamer Blue store. :) Check it out!

Webster's Pages Planner Love

I am absolutely loving my Color Crush planners. The colors are truly amazing and the quality of the inserts are fabulous - so heavy and beautifully designed. I'm so excited to be a part of the Color Crush design team. I've been decorating and playing with them for the past couple of weeks. I wanted to share what I've done so far.

Here is my Light Teal planner. I think it might be my favorite. I adore the color. This spread uses goodies from the Nest collection from Webster's.



I used the Nest collection on this spread, too. It looks awesome in the Light Pink planner. (Which also might be my fave...lol)

Here is another spread in the light pink. The love card is from Allison Kreft's Valentine's Day line from last year for Webster's. It went perfectly with the light pink.

The past couple of weeks I've had so much fun using my Dark Pink and decorating it for Valentine's Day. I made some clips from felt pieces and used lots of Doodlebug Designs goodies in it, including the washi in this pic.

The dark pink folio has gotten a good workout, too. I love that it holds so much. I'm trying to do more stamping in my planners and I have been able to carry around my stamps, ink, and acrylic block.
Here's last week's spread in the Dark Pink. Aren't those birds adorable? They are from Pebbles Inc.

So there you have it. I'll be sharing more, soon. In the meantime, I'm busy creating for a fun Guest Designer assignment that I can't wait to share with you.

Have a great day!

Means So Much

As some of you may remember, I was a part of the Season's Givings blog hop. The winner of my giveaway was Connie Gregoire. Connie told me that she's been a long time follower. I was so glad that I got to 'meet' her after all of this time. (It made me wonder how many others are out there reading this little blog. I check my stats, but of course that doesn't connect the person with the visit.) I love that we were able to connect this way!

Anyway, I sent off her prize package and in return I received the most beautiful thank you note. I had to share it!


Isn't that stamping amazing? And look at the woodgrain background. I am so inspired!

Thank you, Connie for the beautiful card and kind words. It is now displayed in my scraproom. So glad we got the chance to get to know each other a bit. :)
