July 2017 Cocoa Daisy Dori Standard Kit

Hi Guys! Come on in and see what I’m doing today! The July 2017 Cocoa Daisy Dori Standard kit “Under the Sea” is here!!! Looks like the awesome, happy yellow polka dotted box is making another appearance!!

Here it is above just waiting to be opened . . .
‘Hello’ is peeking out from under the brown crinkled paper . . .
“ENJOY EVERY DAY”
The kit included the above six 6×8 papers by Just Jaimee – nautical flags, waves, fish scales, shades of blue – my favorite is the one with the script.
Under the Sea sequin mix from spiegelmom scraps – how cute are these? Hmm, these would go perfect in the birthday card I’m making for my sister . . .
What a beautiful pencil pouch!! I love the watercolor design and those seahorses are awesome!
I love additions like the card in the left photo – just a little touch, but it makes a HUGE impact!! Inside are 6 tab die cuts and a set of planner die cuts by Just Jaimee – lots of complementary designs for my planner.
Above are pics of the mermaid scales washi tape by arleigh – how pretty is that washi?!?!?
On the left are a notepad and seashell sticky notes by arleigh. On the right is a numbers stamp set (1-31), that also includes planner stamps in a thin font that resembles writing – I. Like. It.
The Daisy Dori has a Kraft cover – I’m also showing the first and last pages in the notebook – the designs and colors are incredible!
Pages include:
• Monthly Calendar
• 3 lined journaling pages
• 11 blank (with design) pages
• 10 graph paper pages with 3 sections
• 10 unlined pages with 3 sections
• Last page with design
There are lots of stickers in the kit. A 5×7 planner sticker sheet by arleigh; a date sticker sheet, also by arleigh; tab label stickers by Just Jaimee; and a sheet of mermaid tail stickers.
Here is a pic of the entire kit – Eeeek, I can hardly wait to get started . . .
I use this kit in my Erin Condren personal planner. Above is a shot of the month on two pages. The July is from a set of die cuts I got from Peachy Cheap, and the numbers for the year are from a set of heidi swapp alpha stickers.

June 2017 scribbleprintsco Mystery Ultimate Kit

Hi Guys! Come on in and see what I’m doing today! Here’s the June 2017 scribbleprintsco Mystery Ultimate Kit. It’s a 6-month subscription that comes monthly and includes stickers that are not available in her shop.

Andrea puts a sticker on the back of the kit mailer that hints at the theme. This month I would say there will be fairies, gold glitter, wood, and pink. Hmm, let’s see . . .
This is what was inside the mailer. The kit comes in a clear plastic bag and the sticky notes are separate.
Here are the freebies – a sticky note pad for organizing the week, a small sheet of gold glitter headers, a small sheet of planner deco, a small sheet of fairies and gold glitter stars.

There is also a sheet of tall boxes with fairies that have various hair and skin colors. Ooooo, they’re sooooo pretty!!!!
The top full sheet in this pic are heart checklists with a pattern in the background and gold hearts along the left side.

The middle sheet has a full deco box, washi, and the days of the week.

The bottom sheet has 8 full boxes – those bunny bookends are adorable!
The top full sheet has habit trackers, bill due stickers, flags, quarter and half boxes.

The bottom full sheet also has habit trackers, a weekend banner, flags, icons, triple heart checklists, and long strip-type of checklists.
Here’s a shot of the entire kit. I love the theme this month and the colors are really light and soft.
Above is a full week spread – I try to do no white space, I really do, but this is as close as I get, lol. The struggle is real, guys . . .

Here’s another week spread, I used washi from my stash that I thought went with the theme, but the green was too bright. Oh well, sometimes ya gotta try something new, it doesn’t always work out . . . shoulda used pink . . .

May 2017 Paper Panduh Mermaid Kit

Hi Guys! Come on in and see what I’m doing today! It’s the May 2017 Paper Panduh “Mermaid” kit.

One of the things I love about the Panduh box is that it’s personalized every month in some way – above is my name written on a sand dollar sticker. It was on the side of the kit box . . . how awesome is that????
The other thing I love about the Panduh box is the layers. Above, for example, is the inside of the box. There is a mermaid paperclip on the inside of the lid, and the kit itself is wrapped in blue watercolor tissue paper and a yellow tulle bow.
Here is a card you can use in your planner that says “Let the currents guide your heart.” On the back is a message from Emma AND a coupon for 20% off an order on paperpanduh.com.
Above is a muslin tote that says “do what you love.” The May 2016 Panduhbox had another version of a mermaid kit that include a muslin bag with turquoise seashells on it.
Under the muslin bag is some sea green tissue paper and . . . hey . . . I see some blue tulle up in the corner . . .
Here is the view under the tissue paper . . .
There are four shell-shaped sticky notes – they are sooooo adorable!! Also, that pen . . . it has a very fine tip and black ink.
Inside the blue tulle are 4 rolls of glitter washi – I definitely have a weakness for washi . . . and these ones glitter . . . and they are soooo pretty . . .
There are two sheets of Paper Panduh stickers – lots of decor . . . shells, mermaids, starfish, vegetation . . .
Above are two sheets of planner stickers from Jax and Pepper.
Here’s a shot of the entire kit – mermaids, glitter, seashells, mmm, mmm, mmm . . .
I knew this kit was going to have a mermaid theme and I saw this washi at Michaels – had to get it – isn’t it pretty???????
Here is my month spread. I use this planner to track my social media data – daily blog views, Instagram followers, and Pinterest followers.
This is the first week spread. I’m ready to track my numbers.

Oh, I almost forgot, the pompom was made from the gold and blue tulle in the kit – pompoms are so easy to make – and tulle is a great pompom material.

Erin Condren Summer Seasonal Surprise Box

Hi Guys! Come on in and see what I’m doing today! I got the Erin Condren Summer Seasonal Surprise Box, and it came in a beautiful, bright yellow box.

The Erin Condren website describes the box as:

“a hand-picked collection of seasonal faves. Inside is an assortment of sneak peeks, exclusives & best-selling items guaranteed to surprise and delight.”
The box theme is “Sun Kind of Wonderful!” The products inside are wrapped in ocean blue tissue paper and heavy duty bubble wrap.
This pouch is HUGE!! It’s 9.5” x 6.375” and can hold A LOT of planner supplies. It’s a mocha color with “shine on” in a beautiful metallic gold.
Beyond unlikely, included is a tube of SPF15 lip balm in the box . . . I. Love. It.
On the left is a pack of 6 colorful No. 2 pencils in a recognizable Erin Condren designed box.

The right pic shows a turquoise elastic planner band – the black attached piece is to a pen holder. This comes in very handy when you have a planner without a pen holder.
You can always use notepads, right? The above version is 3 1/2” square with different colored flags on each page and the paper is nice and thick.
I love this pad – I like to plan my week out ahead of time – it shows an overview of what I want to get done. Believe it or not, when I plan like this, I get a lot more accomplished. I’ve found these among my husband’s lists . . . I try to tell him to leave my stuff alone, but how can he resist these?????
There were 2 sheets of stickers. The sheet on the left has a summery design with lots of rose gold accents, and the sheet on the right has a patriotic theme of red, white, blue and metallic gold.
Finally, there was a “summer lovin’” interchangeable cover. Above on the left is the front cover, the center shows the back cover, and the right pic shows the inside. You can use a wet erase pen on the inside covers – great for making lists, table of contents, whatever . . .
Here is a pic of the entire kit – the items definitely speak “summer” in the classic Erin Condren colors, and for $35 you definitely get your money’s worth!!!

May 2017 scarlet lime Planner Society Kit

Hi Guys! Come on in and see what I’m doing today! Here is the May 2017 scarlet lime Planner Society kit.

This is my favorite monthly planner kit because of it’s vintage and floral designs, and you really get your money’s worth. Another thing I LOVE is how girly the kits are – for me, working in a pretty space is worth the time, effort and cost.

In the above pic, you can see what I mean about the vintage floral designs. Each kit comes in a separate paper bag – these bags show up in many people’s monthly planner spreads. They are way too pretty to throw out!!! I get the planner kit and the washi tape kit.
Here is the Washi Tape Kit – pretty, pretty bag – you get three rolls of washi that are 30 mm wide, 15 mm wide, and 10 mm wide. Check out their website for prices – it depends on whether you get the planner kit and on where you live.

This months’ washi rolls are on the right – palm trees, cacti, and pink flamingoes. The colors and designs in the Washi Tape Kit coordinate with the Planner Kit – I rarely have to go to my stash to supplement my decorating.
Above is the bag for the Planner Kit – again, how pretty is that design????? FYI, I use Un-Du to get the sticker off without tearing the beautiful paper . . .
You get lots of bee-you-ti-ful paper in each kit. The left pic shows two sheets of acetate – one with black stripes and pink flamingoes, and one with the planner girl wearing a green palm frond dress, a pink head wrap, and pink shoes.

The middle pic shows two sheets of vellum – one with a pink rose floral pattern and one has palm trees. The right pic shows 6 sheets of really thick patterned cardstock – they are double-sided and have six different patterns – LOTS of choices.
The Planner Girl makes several appearances this month. She is on the acrylic stamp on the left, the sticky notes in the center, and the paper clip on the right.
Here is a sheet of puffy stickers – flamingoes, cacti, palm trees – a sweet bow planner charm, and an awesome pen with a HUGE gem on the end. Love. Love. Love.
A recent addition are these stitched pockets and shakers.
I got diecuts (more planner girls) and 12 tabs and labels to separate sections.
This washi came in the kit – more planner girls (I Love Them) and green floral – oh yeah . . . there’s my floral.
This pretty little bag holds 6 mini sticker sheets seen on the right.
Here’s a pic of the entire kit – it is so pretty, I can’t wait to use it!!!
Above is my monthly spread. Yeah, so . . . I realized that I didn’t have any June Planner inserts (not sure how that happened), so I bought some from PineConeLife on etsy.

I stenciled “gage girl” using a metal stencil from the April Paper Panduh box. OMG, I just love the planner girl washi across the bottom of the page. I stamped the planner girl on each spread, coloring in the head wrap, bow at her waist and the shoes with a pink colored pencil.

I use the kits’ paper to add interest (ahem, cover up stuff) to the pages. The numbers are from The Reset Girl’s ‘Grace’ collection – the colors went perfectly with this months’ kit.
June started on a Thursday, so I covered up the left page with layers of the Planner Girl acetate over the yellow patterned paper – I like how that came out.
And, here’s a weekly spread featuring the stamp, stickers, washi, and diecuts. Such a pretty space to work in, don’t you think?

May 2017 scribbleprintsco Mystery Ultimate Kit

Hi Guys! Come on in and see what I’m doing today! Here’s the May 2017 scribbleprintsco Mystery Ultimate Kit. It’s a 6-month subscription that comes monthly and includes stickers that are not available in her shop.

Andrea always puts a sticker on the back of the kit mailer that gives a hint of the months’ theme. So . . . green palm fronds . . . tropical?
The kit comes in a sealed plastic bag – atypical dark bold colors for a tropical theme. Hmm, interesting . . .
Above are the freebies in this kit. The top sticker sheet shows 4 stickers of girls in their swimsuits – you can use them separately or mix and match them because they fit together.

There is a small sheet of girls with surfboards and palm fronds. A small sheet of light and dark gold, black, and green glitter stickers.

There is a small sheet of deco and a pad of sticker sheets with a heart checklist, black and white stripes, and a palm tree.
Here are 3 large sticker sheets. The top left sheet has 8 full boxes – these are a mix of tropical and maybe, African??? One sticker has a tribal design . . . and the zebra print . . . Definitely African.

The top right sheet has one full box, washi, and weekday labels. The bottom sheet has habit trackers, flags, quarter and half boxes.
You know, I love these colors! Camel, sand, green, black . . .

Above are a sheet of washi and little things stickers. There’s also a full sheet of heart checklists and a full sheet of washi and headers.
These are the final two sheets of stickers. The sheet on the left has deco, icons, and number dates. The sheet on the right has two habit trackers, flags, icons, two short heart checklists, and heart checklist banners.
And, here’s a shot of the entire kit. Again, atypical tropical colors, but I LOVE them. This will be a really fun kit to plan with!!

April 2017 scribbleprintsco Mystery Ultimate Kit

Hi Guys! Come on in and see what I’m doing today! Here’s the April 2017 scribbleprintsco Mystery Ultimate Kit. It’s a 6-month subscription that comes monthly and includes stickers that are not available in her shop.

I love how she puts a sticker on the back of the mailer that gives a sneak peak of the kit inside. It literally makes me want to rip it open when I get it out of the mailbox, lol.

Hmmm . . . pink flowers . . .
The kit comes in a sealed clear plastic bag and includes a coordinating sticky note pad with a heart checklist and a vase of flowers.
“Brunch Date.” Above are the freebies in this kit – 4 full boxes of two women at a bistro with various skin and hair colors (lots of choices), 10 “brunch date” stickers, a small sheet of deco, and the sticky note pad. Black, white, pink and LOTS of gold glitter . . . mmmmhmmmm . . .
Here are a sheet of heart checklists; glitter headers, flags, and half boxes in 3 shades of pink and black; little things stickers; and a full sheet of habit trackers, flags, icons, small checklists, and checklist banners.

April 2017 scarlet lime Planner Society Kit

Hi Guys! Come on in and see what I’m doing today! Here is the April 2017 scarlet lime Planner Society kit.

This is by far my favorite monthly planner kit – vintage floral designs just speak to me. Also, you definitely get your money’s worth.
I get the “Washi Tape Society” kit as well – it includes three rolls of washi that match the papers and other items in the kit – and y’know . . . you can NEVER have too much washi. How ‘bout the paper bag it came in? Aren’t those the sweetest flowers ever??? Oh yeah, you’re going to see those again . . .
The kit comes with 6 sheets of two-sided paper – aren’t they beautiful? I use them to cover up dates before and after the current month, make dashboards, shakers, and bookmarks.
This kit came with two rolls of washi – black floral and horses, as well as a bottle of sequins and cutouts for making shakers.
Here are three sticky note pads – dragonfly “need,” hummingbird “want,” and unicorn “must have.” There’s a binder in the black floral pattern for stamp sets and stickers.

And . . . these are my favorite pens, like ever!!! This one has the same floral pattern as the washi kit paper bag and the crown on the end is just to die for . . . I love, love, love this pen!!!!!
There’s a “my lists” booklet in a black floral pattern, three wire clips in flower, dragonfly and horse designs, and a stamp set – so darned cute!!
Above are the seven journaling cards – they match the florals, colors and designs in the kit.
Here are the diecuts – unicorns, dragonflies, butterflies, bees, planners, cameras, record players, flowers, hassles, and travelers notebooks. So pretty!!
Each kit comes with 12 tabs that also match the kit (I use them to mark each week), and 4 sheets of tab labels.
This paper bag has 3 sheets of stickers – mostly decor, but also some hand drawn circles with a horizontal line through the center.
Here’s a pic of the entire kit – you get A LOT of stuff in these kits – they are well, well worth the $$$$.
Above is a view of the entire month spread – I use this planner to organize my blogs. The sticky notes are useful because sometimes I change my mind about what I’m going to blog, and sometimes I rearrange the order of the blogs.

I used the stencil from the April Paper Panduh kit to put “GAGE GIRL” across the page – I LOVE this!!

I left the sticky notes on the card they came with, hole-punched it and put it on the rings – I know exactly where they are and they actually get used.
This is the Week 1 spread – here is where I organize my daily activities – keeps me on schedule most of the time.
I made a shaker divider. I used a small page protector, cut a sheet of the paper to size, poured the sequin mixture in both sides, sealed the top with my We R Memory Keepers Fuse Tool. Seriously, that’s it . . . it’s sooooooo easy!!!

April 2017 Paper Panduh “Make Your Dreams Happen” Kit

Hi Guys! Come on in and see what I’m doing today! It’s the April 2017 Paper Panduh “Make Your Dreams Happen” kit.

Above is a pic of the inside of the box – I love, love, love the tissue paper – and that soft pink satin ribbon is so pretty! I. Love. Pretty.

Each kit is personalized in some way – this month is the GIANT round sticker with my initial on it – ugh, so, so, so pretty!!!!
The Panduh Box is multi-layered – adds to the suspense . . . here are a few items atop a piece of pink tissue paper. Wait, there’s more . . . Oh yes, there’s more . . .
And . . . this is under the pink tissue . . .
Here’s a simple, yet lovely, pink, glittery paper clip from HelloSimplePaper.
How about this hand-drawn days of the week washi?

I’ve been playing around with lettering . . . I think I’ll try this . . . Looks easy, right?
This months’ kit is “focused on functional planning.” . . . “we not only wanted this month’s planner goodies to be pretty” . . . well, I. Love. Pretty.

Did I already say that? Well . . . it bears repeating . . . I. Love. Pretty. Why not have a pretty, as well as functional, place to work????
Here’s a bag with GIANT gold polka dots on it with a few goodies inside . . . There’s a gold metal alphabet/number stencil by dear lizzy and a pink metallic pen with a really fine point (my absolute favorite size tip).
And, of course, there are stickers. The functional stickers on the left are from Paper House.

The ones in the center are from heidi swapp and are clear – I am a huge heidi swapp fan – her products as well as her.

There are 3 sheets of stickers from Color Pop Studio – your traditional planner stickers – numbers, full and half boxes, days of the week, flags, etc. – in a black and soft pink color scheme.
This is a really useful notepad to help keep me organized for the week – seeing my plans on one sheet of paper makes them seem less daunting – and honestly, I get more done.
Here’s a pic of the entire kit – mmmmmmmmm, so beautiful!!!!
Yeah, so, I was at Hobby Lobby right after I got this kit and . . . seriously . . .  isn’t this washi perfect for the kit????? Yeah, I thought so too.
How fun is this? I cut a section out of the paper bag, laminated it, slit along the opening with a craft knife, attached a piece of the pink satin ribbon with my mini attacher, and put the extra stickers in the pocket. I put my giant “J” sticker on the back.

Again . . . pretty AND functional.
Here is my monthly spread. This is by far my favorite spread I’ve ever, ever done.

The “May” on the top left is a monthly die from Peachy Cheap – I cut it out and attached it to a piece of cardstock, inking the edges.

I used the stencil to letter “gagegirl” across the center – this may become a standard addition.

The washi is from my stash, the sticker on the bottom right is from the outside of the tissue – I used Undo to get it off without tearing it – a neat little trick.
This is the first week spread.

The weekday washi was too wide for my Erin Condren . . . so . . . I alternated the days top and bottom . . . hmm, I like it.

You can see my sticker pocket on the right, attached with the pink paper clip.

So. Much. Pretty. Stuff.
