Planner Pages Gossamer Blue Style!

Hi and Welcome to this month's Gossamer Blue Blog Hop. It's always fun to get more inspiration and that's what we are here to do. Today, I have some fun planner projects to share with you. As you know, I love my planners. The August kits were perfect for filling up my Light Pink Color Crush and keeping me organized in a fun way! I started off by choosing some of my favorite items and filling my front pockets with them. These are the things that I am most likely to need as I plan through the week. I love adding some extra die cuts, too, as decorative items.

Next, I made a dashboard for my planner. This is usually the first page I open and I like to add something with a fun quote. This one sums me up perfectly!

I pulled several of the die cuts to decorate this spread. I used polka dot washi down the side of the page and added cut paper strips along the top and bottom. This way, I could keep things color coordinated even though I didn't have the matching washi.

I love using Life's Pages cards and die cuts in my planners. Here I adhered the cute bus to the card. I added my weekly to do list on the back of the card.

Flair badges are perfect for making cute clips! I just hot glued this one to the paper clip and I was done. I did a couple of more and keep them in my front pocket, too.

This next spread uses even more of the goodies from the kits. Again, the die cuts and label stickers worked great! I also used some stamps. I love the banner stamp and colored it with my Prismacolor pencils.

I also used the kit items to decorate my monthly page. I usually decorate this one as I go along. Here it is at the beginning of the month.
As you can see, the August kits are so much fun and have lots of great elements for planner decorating.

Be sure to stop by everyone's blogs. There's tons of inspiration to go around!
Have a great day. :)

Gossamer Blue August Projects

It can't be August 1st! The summer is going way to quickly. I don't want it to end yet. We have had a wonderful time traveling and making memories.  I just got back from a wonderful week in the Outer Banks. I love it there so much. Luckily, Gossamer Blue's August kits are filled with amazing summery goodness. I had a ball creating with them and still have a bunch more that I want to do using them.

The kits go on sale today, so be sure to head over and grab your's . You won't be disappointed! Here are a couple of projects that I made using them.


I loved this Simple Stories paper and wanted it to be the focus of my page, along with the photo. So, I added a couple of embellishments and called it a day. I love how it totally captured the 'Maui' feeling!

This next page is one about Ryan. I loved the Life's Pages card and used it to document his 'currents'. The 'he' die cut originally said 'she'. I just cut off the s. Love how it turned out.

Be sure to head over to Gossamer Blue to see the amazing DT Gallery this month and to check out the kits!
