Week At-A-Glance

Happy Monday!

Soooooo….I’ve found that I’m obsessed with the Happy Planner stickers. Like super obsessed. So once my weekly spread is complete, sometimes I’m in the mood to create more (and more and more) with the products.

Therefore, I decided to start creating a week at-a-glance layout. I’ve also been loving to use my Mini Happy Planner as a way to jot down important scriptures or reflections.

Here’s a look at both!

Hope y’all love it!

Simplicity in planning

In my last post, I talked about the love I have for the creativity part of planning. This remains the same. However, a while back, I set up a monthly planner using all  Happy Planner supplies and I absolutely love it. I keep track of the bills that have been paid (by highlighting them, and I keep track of major monthly events. Here is a look at my work/personal spread using tons of the Colorful Boxes stickers.

This is much more functional and simple for those of you who love this kind of thing.

The love I have for planning…

Y’all.

I love planners so much. But I have a confession:  love the creative part more than the “planning” part. Don’t get me wrong, I open my planners quite often, but it’s probably to add fun stickers, or practice my doodling. 😉 It’s the same for scrapbooking! Telling stories is great and all, but I’ve always (ALWAYS) loved the creative part so much more. I say who cares, as long as I’m having fun and not breaking the law.

The handwriting thing gets me in a tizzy. All these other spreads that I see have the most perfectly straight handwriting. I try…but mine certainly does not come out like that. That doesn’t stop me, though!

Here are a couple of projects that I recently created on my YT channel.

Check it out here 🙂

Traveler’s Notebook bandwagon

Good Morning!

I hopped on the Traveler’s Notebook bandwagon in 2017 and I have fallen deeply in love.

Most of the time when I saw someone creating in a Traveler’s Notebook insert, I thought that it was strictly for travel. And let’s face it, I do not travel many places. I have a full-time job, a husband, and a kid—which means, my money is being used in other areas. 😉

Anyway, once I realized that it was an alternative to scrap booking larger layouts, I thought it was genius.

So here is a recent TN spread for you all!

Project Life Love.

I have to say that Project Life is by far one of my favorite projects to create. Or it may even be my absolute favorite.

This one was created for  January Studio Calico Workshop. The pictures are not up-to-date with the month as I had to create this project about a month in advance but I absolultely loved SC’s January kit, and I love the way this came out.

And what do you know, I used my own handwriting. WHAT?!!?

See y’all tomorrow!

It’s been forever…

Hey everyone!

I am so excited to be back on my blog sharing some fun projects that I have completed more recently. I can’t believe that I have not posted since December….sad….Anyway. I’m back and ready to roll!!

Check out one of my final projects for the Hip Kit Club. I absoultely loved how this came out. I’m not much of a mixed media person, but I think I’ll be using acrylic paint more often.

Just a few simple paint strokes on top of some patterned paper, and violia!

Sketch to Traveler’s Notebook

Happy Friday everyone!

Ashley here, sharing a fun and simple Traveler’s Notebook spread with you all, using the Hip Kit Club October 2017 kits!

This one is based on today’s sketch (see in the comments). I started by using some of the pink cardstock on the right side of the page, for my base. I punched my photo into a circle and then roughly cut some of the patterned papers into circular-like shapes. Then, I added some stitching, just for a little something extra.

For some of my other embellishment areas, I punched some circles out of the Project Life cards that we received in our Project Life Kit. These are HKC exclusive!

I added a Pinkfresh Studio tag on the right side of the page, along with some of the tiny words for journaling.

I just love how simple this page turned out! I hope y’all gain some inspiration from this.

Making it work

Ashley

Hey y’all! I’m so excited to share a fun Memory Planner spread with you all. This week we focused on two of the products from our kits: The Maggie Holmes “Carousel” journaling cards, along with the Paige Evans “Turn the Page” sticker book, by Pink Paislee.

I started by placing my photos around the planner spread. Then, I immediately grabbed the Paige Evans (Pink Paislee) sticker book and began adding lots of the clear stickers all around the page. I particularly love all of the inspiring quotes!

For the journaling piece, I simply deconstructed one of the journaling cards and added the pocket (with adhesive) to my page. Then, I added a touch of journaling and tucked the tag right inside my pocket.

Also, from the Embellishment Kit, I the butterfly stamp in a few different areas!

I love the way this came out and I hope you do too!

Using small embellishments!

Hey everyone!

Ashley here, sharing a fun project with you all, featuring the August 2017 kits. This is my last roject with these kits, and I have to say, I still have tons of product left. I’m so excited to add to my stash and continue to create with all of the amazingness!

I created a 12×12 project life spread using a few of the HKC Exclusive cards from the Project Life Kit.I adhered some of the photos, and started with my embellishing.

Today’s focus was small embellishments. I used tons of the sequins, along with the jeweled stars to add more interest around my spread. I also used a few of the smaller card stock sticker hearts to for more detail.

For my title card, I used some of the HKC Exclusive alphas from the Main Kit. If you don’t have numbers in your set, just use letters, as I did!

This spread was super fun and simple to put together. I hope y’all gain some inspiration and will share how you’re using the August kits!

Oh! and don’t forget to check out my process video–down below!
