Happy Planner Pages // November 2018

Saturday, January 5, 2019

I won't even make excuses for posting my November Happy Planner pages in January! Suffice it to say, holiday season, busy time, lots of family, lots of work...and LOTS of using the heck out of this thing to keep me on track!

I'll start off with a weekly spread using the Miss Maker collection. I LOVE the bright colors in this one!!! While working on this week I had an idea- to use narrow boxes to keep up with Darren's ever-changing schedule at the hospital! I've done this every week since then, and it's been a lifesaver as far as scheduling goes.

This was also the week where I decided to try out making a Plan With Me video for my YouTube channel!

I've filmed bunches of my layouts since then, but ran out of time to edit and upload. I'm going to try to keep up with that more this year!

The next layout was from the week of Darren's birthday, so I went crazy with the balloons and party theme.

During November I also cut down on the number of planners I was using. Four was just too much, so I sized it down to two- my catch-all and to-do list planners- and let the fitness and journaling planners go. I found that I like to journal in the Day One app more than in my planner, anyway, and my Apple Watch and iPhone are actually the perfect spot for me to record my fitness information.

For the week of Thanksgiving I went all seasonal with the Squad Goals sticker book:

And, spoiler alert- in December I decided to try combining everything onto one layout- the Classic size Horizontal. I fell in love with it. Truly. So much so that I returned the other two layouts I had planned to try in 2019 and am using just the horizontal now!

The last week of November was super busy, so I kept it simple.

Most of the stickers on these pages are from the huge 100 sheet Mega Sticker Value Pack that was released at JoAnn on Black Friday. I have seen them still available in my local store recently as well as in the Happy Planner online store, so check out my flipthrough video below if you think this is something you might be interested in!

I have my December planner pages photographed and will be posting them soon. Until then, have an awesome day, and thanks so much for stopping by!

Lawn Fawn December 2018 Inspiration Week // Tiny Gift Box Raccoon and Fox Add-On

Monday, December 10, 2018

So, how was that for a long blog post title? Ha!

Some of Lawn Fawn's products can have some long names, though, especially when they are of the add-on variety. I am totally on board with any length of name for these little cuties, though, because the Raccoon and Fox add-ons to the Tiny Gift Box die are simply adorable!

I said a couple of posts ago that I couldn't stay away from the glitter with this release, and I had such fun using Lawn Fawn's Sparkle Cardstock (these colors are from the Autumn pack) for the faces and tails on my boxes. 

The add-ons and boxes are super easy to put together, but do take a bit of time to actually do all of the die cutting. And I cannot recommend the Lawn Fawn Glue Tube enough when putting these together- it made sticking all of those little pieces down so easy!

Thanks so much for stopping by today! I'll be back tomorrow with another projects from the Lawn Fawn Valentine's release!

Lawn Fawn December 2018 Inspiration Week // I Love You(calyptus)

Sunday, December 9, 2018

Koalas were my favorite animal when I was a kid, and are still one of my favorites today. Back then I practically memorized the book A Koala Grows Up and would get a bit miffed when people referred to them as bears (because they are, in fact, marsupials).

So, when Lawn Fawn came out with the new I Love You(calyptus) mini stamp set as part of their Valentine's release, I was pretty excited!

This card is pretty simple - I used the Zig Zag Rectangle dies (yes, again!) to cut a background from some green Gotta Have Gingham paper. I stamped the images onto Bristol paper with Lawn Fawn's Jet Black ink and colored with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush pens and a water brush. Then I layered the cut images over a die cut Sending Hugs die (also part of the new release), added some white Nuvo drops, and that was that!

Thanks so much for stopping by- I hope you have a great day!

P.S. While kid me read A Koala Grows Up to get my marsupial facts, grown up me very much enjoys the following (only slightly NSFW) educational video:

 P.P.S. "Koala in the rain" has become a substitute for a phrase containing a certain four letter word in our house. :)
