You Are... | Bella Blvd

I was challenged to create using the Bella Blvd acrylic words (click here for the acrylic words) and boy was this a fun one!  I paired my words and pictures with the BarnYard collection (click here to get yours) to better tell the story of Moo my son's newest addition to his stuffed animal collection.

I began this story with the words that fit the story I wanted to tell on white cardstock.  Then I added in a few choice diecuts and 4x6 pieces that continued my story and created a scene.  Some black splatters helped to emphasize the cow part of the story.  I chose to use a white border sticker to act as clouds holding up my words, thus anchoring them to the page.  Another border sticker added in the green of the grass and tying the page together from the top to the bottom.  Personally, I am in love with the cute page!  What do you think?

Week 19 | Elle's Studio

It is reveal time at Elle's Studio!  I absolutely love this month's kit, it was right up my alley.
So, what is in the kit this month???  Green, circles, puffy stickers, need I say anymore?
Just click on the pictures below to be taken to the site where for the next 24 hours you can get a discount on the kit and on anything you add to that order...

I began with some Thanksgiving/Christmas pictures, and it worked so well.  I emphasized the green capturing the outdoor feel and the Christmas theme of the page.  Using the circles as a repeating element I drew all the elements together into a cohesive page that I love...

Shaker Cards | Jillibean Soup

I have enjoyed playing with the Jillibean Soup shaker cards (see all the options here), 
they can be dressed up in so many different ways!

This was the star insert with a stamp to make the trail of stars and some added Sparkle.

I thought this was such a smart card, I was so proud of my wittiness here, lol!  This was the square insert card with some pieces from the Farmhouse Stew collection.

Planner Peace for Today | Cocoa Daisy

Today I am sharing a look at what has become my planner peace for the past 2 months (and hopefully longer).  A few weeks ago I wrote a post about all the different options I was considering for my planner peace, Finding the Right Size Planner for You, since that time I have found a way to combine all of my loves into one size, the B6.  I have included a set-up YouTube and my final April flip-through to inspire, if you have any questions just leave them in the comments and I'd be glad to answer them for you.

I do still use the Personal Ring option as I love the daily to do pages, 
but this has become my scrappy binder and lays open on my desk.

Since this time, I have also added in a pocket size Dori to go into my purse, 
nothing fancy here, but I needed a way to not forget dates if we were out.

And check my instagram for a sneak peek of a Dutch Door style 
that I am playing with for next time!

And here is a final walk through of my completed B6 planner for April, hope you enjoy!
