Happy Wednesday, all!

The new Simon Says Stamp card kit for July 2015 was revealed over the weekend. I adore the Sail Away stamp set in the kit, and I’ve been looking forward to creating a specific card with it every since I designed the stamps! I’ve had this card in my head ever since.

Copic Coloring – Congrats on Your New Sidekick

Happy Wednesday, everyone! I first have to thank you all for the awesome support of my PlanThis planner inserts! You all have been so enthusiastic and I love hearing about how you’re setting up your planners! Please share pictures with me on Instagram with the hashtag #planthis. That way we all can see your planners! :)

Anyhow, today I have a card for you that I created for my friend Jana who just adopted a new cat. When Christy from Tiddly Inks sent me her new Wryn Scootin’ By digital stamps, I knew the girl on the the scooter with a cat would be perfect! (There’s also a dog in the digital kit in case you want a dog instead of a cat). Thanks, Christy, for sending the images along for me to play with! She mentioned that the cat on the scooter reminder her of my Mannie. :)

PlanThis Planner Inserts – NEW options & Layouts

Hi all!

A few days ago, I announced that my planner inserts were available for purchase. A lot of you had questions or requests. Thank you for the feedback! :)

Daily Sections – NEW Options

Many of you wanted the option to change the colors or sizes of the daily sections. Sadly, this is not possible in Adobe Reader. You can only edit text. Every end user would have to have a design program on their computer in order to edit the colors or the sizes of the sections to make that possible.

However, I’ve come up with some fun color combination options for you guys which you can see HERE! And I hope to add more throughout the year (holiday colors, etc). As for the sizes of the daily sections, I’ve added the uneven daily section design that I currently use in case you don’t want even sections. So there are quite a few different options now. Because of this, I’ve broken everything down into the elements and you can buy the different options separately.

Father’s Day Shaker Card – Fintastic Friends from Lawn Fawn

I think this might be the largest card I’ve ever made. This whopper is 5.5″ wide and 7.5″ tall! But I just couldn’t bring myself to cut down or cover up any more of the cute water scene. And there’s no need for an envelope since I’ll be hand delivering this card on Father’s Day. :)

My dad has always loved fish. Fish of all kinds. He doesn’t do fishing, though. Instead, he has fish tanks. It’s one of his hobbies that we’ve all enjoyed over the years. So when I saw the Finstastic Friends stamps set from Lawn Fawn that was just released, I knew it would be perfect for a Father’s Day card…

PlanThis DIY Planner Inserts – Editable planner inserts

Hi all!

You all know that I love my planner, right? :) I’ve been on the hunt for the perfect planner or planner inserts for over a year. I was frustrated that I wasn’t able to find inserts that I liked. I wanted something stripped back and simple. No frills, but well designed. And with all the sections I needed and the format I wanted. So I decided to design them myself.

I’ve used my custom inserts for about eight months now and I really love them. :)
