Creating your planner pages can be a lot of fun. You can use as much product as you wish: simple or elaborated, it doesn’t really matter. The idea is that you make them fun! Plan ahead of time, make some notes here and there, and work around the events and  activities that you have already planned.

100917web_plannersepC

For my pages I knew we were going to have  my son’s birthday, so I prepared some of the elements of the pages ahead of time, and stamped and used the Journey tape here and there, and I also planned my days a little bit.

Of course I knew we were going to have some pictures that day, so I left a space for it. The planner products are very versatile and combining them with some of the regular stamps can be such a great opportunity to take advantage of the products that you already have.

FSJ • All Hallows’ Eve Card

Hello friends, I am back today to share a card that I created using some Fun Stampers Journey products.  I want to point out that this time I  used a simple and fun  SplitcoastStamper sketch (SCS664) to create my card.

092917web_hallows2

The stamp set that I used is called Hallows’Eve and it is  included in the Journey Holiday Mini. I want to mention that this set is a Host Exclusive product. To learn more about how to host a Make-It Party, please click >HERE<  This set in particular is a large set with thirty one stamps. All the images included are very cute and they are perfect to use for Halloween themed projects.

I also used a background stamp called Widow’s Web, and I simply stamped it with Tangerine Fusion ink over Citrus Cooler cardstock. The little figures were stamped with  Black Licorice ink  onto Whip Cream cardstock.  I added some details with Journey Color Splash watercolor pencils and then cut trimmed the tiny images with scissors.

092917web_hallows1

To create an ombré effect for the the little spooky house image, I inked the stamp with three different tones of purple (Pretty Amethyst, Lavender Fusion and Grape Fusion). Then,  I stamped the sentiment over a pierced oval matted with a larger vellum oval.   I layered all the elements of the card and I added a few other things to complement the cute scene: Journey tape, sequins and Sparkle silk.

By the way, a new fun promotion has started at Fun Stampers Journey, check it out:

FSJ • December Planner Pages

I have been planning a little bit ahead for the coming Winter break just because we will spend some of those days visiting good friends in Florida, so I prepared a couple of pages for that specific week. I decorated these pages more than normal, thinking that maybe I can use some of the components  as part of a Christmas scrapbooking layout, that I will be making after the Holidays.

112216web_plannerbuffet6

To begin, I partially covered the days of the week on the left with card stock, just to make them different, and I stamped a few images here and there. I also adhered a border over the rings side.  As you can see, I haven’t finished writing everything because I am still in the planning stage of the activities with our friends 🙂 The planner that I am using today is a size A5, which is bigger with lots of space for your notes.

112216web_plannerbuffet4

Between the two pages of the week, I included and acetate page, which was layered with a Holiday prints panel and a Notebook page. I embellished that side with a stamped image, a paper clip and sequins.  If I need more space for a list or notes, I can always use the back of the printed paper to add another notebook page 🙂

112216web_plannerbuffet1

The right side shows the Fun Sleeve shape.  I love this die template. You can embellish it as you wish and use it to keep important little things there. I am going to use it to hold the tickets of the places that we are going to visit.

112216web_plannerbuffet3

Just by  adding small details like the paper clip and scalloped edge, you can enhance your projects, it is fun and sometimes paper scraps work perfectly for this purpose.

112216web_plannerbuffet5

Behind the sleeve, I included another partial page that holds a photo frame. This is another of my favorites die templates!  I decorated it  with a few die cut elements, drops and sequins. Making you planner pages can be so much fun! 🙂

112216web_plannerbuffet2

Currently  Fun Stampers Journey is having a promotion on planners and products now through December 31st.  The have put together bundles,  either size personal or the A5 planner (like the one I am showing today).  Please be sure to visit the FSJ store to see the amazing  bundles by clicking on the image below:

FSJ • November Planner Pages

Hey there! I have a couple of planner pages that I want to share with you today. These pages were created using a bunch of products by Fun Stampers Journey.  The Be the Journey Trends Mini Catalog is filled with awesome new products, just perfect to decorate and plan your everyday activities and important celebrations.

110916web_plannertgI created these pages for the week of Thanksgiving and I used the Receipt Pocket as the main component to hold receipts, coupons, etc. that I am going to be using during those days.  This die is   one of my favorites just because is very useful, and you can decorate it as you wish.

110916web_plannertg3

You can make a good use of any of your other FSJ stamps and embellishments when creating your pages.  Additionally to the pocket page, I made a partial middle page from card stock to hold a little list of things to complete on one side, and a Thanksgiving card on the other side.

110916web_plannertg2

I like to use regular stamps combined with the new planner stamps, that are just the perfect size to add some extra details to your notes. I have to confess that making planner pages can be a lot of fun, specially because there are no rules.

110916web_plannertg8

Besides that, you can always use some of your other FSJ dies to add more details onto your pages…

110916web_plannertg4Details like thread, paper clips and silk here are just a few of the endless possibilities that planner pages can have.

110916web_plannertg5

I f you haven’t experimented with this (wink, wink) I highly recommend you to give it a try. Super fun indeed. Please refer to the list at the end of this post to  find the name of the products that I used for this project.

HA 2016 Planner Catalog Blog Hop

Hello and welcome!

bloghop_600_logo

Today I am joining the launch of the Hero Arts 2016 Planner Catalog! This catalog is full of fun designs by both Hero Arts and talented Kelly Purkey! There is a a lot of great stuff to make planning fun, as well as to use it on cards and other projects! The products have been shipping to retailers for a couple weeks now, so you may have seen them out and about. But this blog hop marks the launch in the Hero Arts online store.

I created a few projects for the catalog, and I had a lot of fun mixing and matching different stamp sets to decorate some planner pages. This is not as difficult as it seems.  I promise!  You can make your planner pages as simple or as complex as you wish, and there is not such a thing as making mistakes!

101216web_palnnerpage

The other thing that you can do with this type of stamps, is that you can use them to make cards as well as other projects (tags, notes, etc.)

101216web_hellohello

To create the card above, I used the Calendar Bold Prints stamp to create the background over a Snow Layering Panel. I adhered it over a card base. Then, I used one of the dies included in the Everything Smiles Stamp & Cut set, to create the text bubbles. I used three different colors of Layering Papers and I stamped a”hello” sentiment with Intense Black ink. This sentiment is from another set called: Fun Day Planner.

101216web_hellohello2

I adhered three pieces of decorative tape over the card, and then I arranged the text bubbles. Additionally, I stamped some Emoji Icons over Snow Layering Paper. The Emoji Icons come in a Mini Tube, and they are one of my favorite HA products! I colored them with Copics, and I make them into a circle with a punch. I adhered the emojis over the card and I embellished the card with some enamel dots.

GIVEAWAY
Hero Arts will be giving away three $25 shopping sprees, drawn from comments left across all blogs in the hop. Please comment by Wednesday, October 19 at 11:59pm PT and Hero will announce the winner the following week. Here is the list of participant blogs:
