Erin Condren Fall 2017 Seasonal Surprise Box

Hi Guys! Come on in and see what I’m doing today! I FINALLY got the Erin Condren Fall 2017 Seasonal Surprise Box.

Not sure what happened to my Surprise Box (my tracking kept saying pending – for like forever), but customer service was great and resent a new box. Seriously, how awesome is that????

Above is a view inside the box – lime green tissue paper and an “enjoy!” sticker.
Inside the tissue paper are the package of pen holders I ordered, as well as a really pretty purple box . . .
There were 2 cards inside the box. The one on the left has a coupon that expired the day before I received it  🙁   The card on the right is an explanation for the box – theme, how to win the next season’s box, giving feedback, yada yada yada . . .
On the left is a pad of 30 lined sticky notes, and on the right are 3 dual-tip markers – the colors are awesome!!!
Here are 3 note cards – nice for sending a quick note – which I do . . .
This is a 16 foot roll of paper tape – and it’s paper – pretty cool!!!
These are large labels you can put on gifts – there are some Halloween ones, also that didn’t make the pic . . .
This is a Dashboard that will clip into a coil planner – it’s laminated, so you can use a wet erase pen and be able to erase it.
There were two large sheets of stickers – one has a fall them with gold-foil embellishments – the other has a Halloween theme.
This is a “grateful” flair pin – not sure what I’m going to do with this . . . Wear it? Put it in my planner? Hmmmmm . . .
Finally, this is both sides of a Metallic Fall Leaf cover – how pretty is that? I love the inside where you can use wet erase markers and write lists, or quotes, or whatever, on them and then you can erase it. Nice.
Here’s a shot of the entire box contents. This is my 2nd seasonal box, and I’m not sure if I’ll get it again. Any thoughts????

October 2017 scribbleprintsco Mystery Ultimate Kit

Hi Guys! Come on in and see what I’m doing today! Here’s the October 2017 scribbleprintsco Mystery Ultimate Kit.

The sticker on the back of the mailer always gives a hint of the kit theme. Looks like warm, cozy, plaid, green, cream, a turtleneck sweater, a vest, winter boots, and a splash of gold glitter.
The kit comes in a clear plastic bag – you can see the colors and theme right away. A pad of sticky notes is always part of the monthly subscription kit.
The dino stickers and the deco sampler are subscriber-only extras. The small sheet of shipping boxes can be purchased in the shop. The small sampler at the top right is a freebie. And, finally, the sticky note pad has a purple plaid border and is a heart checklist – pretty and functional, oh yeah . . .
On the left are the ombre heart checklists, and on the right is a sampler sheet of flags, appointment labels, habit trackers, and icons.
The right sheet has half boxes, quarter boxes, and appointment labels. The other sheet is full boxes “the adventure begins” – they’re accented with gold – soooo pretty!! Also, the bottom center stickers are a camping scene that can be used together or separately.
These two sheets are solid washi, headers, little things, and appointment labels on the top one, and patterned washi and headers on the bottom sheet.
I saved the best stickers for last . . . on the right is the glitter sampler and it IS available in her shop. The other sheet has another girl full box, date strips and bottom washi. Yep, definitely my favorite . . .
Here’s a pic of the entire kit – I love the color combinations in these kits – black, peach, light rose and seafoam green. So, so, so pretty!!!
Above is a shot of a week-on-two-pages spread using the kit. This is called “No White Space” decor because there’s . . . no white space . . . Not my usual planner decor, but nice for a change of pace.

How pretty is this? Your work-space should be pretty . . .

September 2017 Paper Panduh Two Year Anniversary Box

Hi Guys! Come on in and see what I’m doing today! It’s the September 2017 Paper Panduh Two Year Anniversary Box.

Paper Panduh Kits come in a signature metallic gold foil mailer – see above – I know immediately that the kit is here. It definitely makes an entrance . . .
Each box is personalized in some way – this month, there is a black and white floral sticker with my name written on it.
Above is a large sticker on the inside of the lid “Beauty begins the moment you decide to be yourself.” – coco chanel

The card inside says “You are some kind of wonderful” and is marble and pink – soooo pretty . . .
On the other side of the card is a note from the Panduh’s, a discount code for 20% off a paperpanduh.com order, their new instagram, and suggestions for future boxes.
The cool thing about the #panduhbox is its layers. This kit starts with gray tissue wrapped with white silk ribbon.
Above is a view under the gray tissue . . .
A beautiful, unique pair of scissors . . .
And a pen with a marble design on one end, white crystals on the other, and gold trim. Oh, and a little panda icon . . .
Under the pink tissue is the rest of the kit.
There’s an avocado face mask – I can’t wait to use this . . . .
There are LOTS of stickers. In the left photo is a tablet of 559 Carpe Diem stickers.

The middle pic has two sheets of stickers from the Wild Sunshine Co. Made exclusively for #panduhbox.

The right pic shows two sheets of Paper Panduh stickers with a marble background.
Finally, is a set of Carpe Diem sticky notes on a hole-punched sheet of cardstock that you can put in a 6-ring binder.

You can also run a layer of washi along the edge and repunch the holes for your own planner.
Here’s a pic of the entire kit – marble, pink, gold, stickers, a beautiful pen, gold scissors, and a face mask.

Pretty things and a little something to pamper yourself. It can’t get any better than that!!
This is a weekly spread using the Panduh Box. I love the gray/white/pink colors – I used washi from my stash – gray & white horizontal stripes, and skinny pink and gray.

I used the WRMK pompom maker and made a pompom out of the white satin ribbon, and pink and gray yarn from my stash.

Hmm, panduh’s favorites, but not really mine . . . If you check out any of my scarlet lime Planner Society blogs, you know my favorites are vintage florals . . . just sayin’ . . .

September 2017 scarlet lime Planner Society Kit

Hi Guys! Come on in and see what I’m doing today! The September 2017 scarlet lime Planner Society Kit is here!!!!

I get the Monthly Planner Society Kit Club subscription, as well as the Washi Tape Kit. Above is a pic of the kits inside their paper bags – who knew brown flowers could be so pretty????
The Washi Tape Kit comes with three rolls of washi that are 30mm, 15mm, and 10mm wide. The roll on the left has a woodgrain, floral, rose gold bow design.

The middle washi tape roll are multi-colored planners in a horizontal orientation.

The washi on the right is pink and black plaid – So. Pretty….
The main kit is in this brown floral paper bag – how beautiful is this bag????
This is a mini booklet that holds stamp sets like the one on the right – which is an inside view of a planner, complete with tiny bows.
This are DIY pen holders – there are three designs to choose from. If you want to watch a video on how to make these, search DIY planner pen loops on YouTube. They’re realllllllly easy to make.
There are two rolls of washi tape – one is pink with rose gold bows and the other is a black floral.
Twelve diecut tabs – in designs that match the kit – and four sheets of labels are shown above.
Ugh, how CUTE ARE THESE??? The bow on the left is a dimensional metallic gold sticker, and the owl paper clip on the right is a shaker. Seriously. This is the cutest clip I’ve ever owned!!!!!
These are owl and planner sticky note pads. Sheesh, they are just adorable!!

And that pen . . . the barrel is black floral and the end has like gold shavings in a liquid – they float around . . . Huh . . . Just . . . Wow . . .
There are six paper doilies – 3 in black floral, and 3 in brown and pink floral – 4 journal cards, and a set of die cuts.
The paper bag on the left is plaid with a grouping of roses on it. Inside are six mini sheets of sticker deco and one mini sheet of sentence strips.
Finally, the kit came with six sheets of double-sided paper, one sheet of acetate with bows, and two sheets of floral vellum.
Here is a pic of the entire kit – you really get your money’s worth in The Planner Society kits. And they’re full of florals. And vintage. And girlie. And pretty. And I Love Them . . .
I used my WRMK Planner Punch and punched the left side of the sticky note card, as well as the pocket I made for my extras.
Here is the month-on-two-pages spread. I use this planner to plan and organize my blogs for the month. I made a pen holder (on the left), and used the acetate to make a dashboard.
This is the first full week spread. I framed one of the owl diecuts with washi (top left), ran washi along the left side and bottom of the pages, and created my own flags out of the washi (top outside corners of the pages).

October 2017 Cocoa Daisy Dori Standard Kit

Hi Guys! Come on in and see what I’m doing today! The October 2017 Cocoa Daisy Dori Standard Kit “Woodland” is here!!!

“This month’s kit features foxes, mushrooms, and a gnome named Simon.”

Above is what the box looked like when it arrived – I think something was trying to get out, lol….
Here’s a first look inside. Eeeek, I can’t wait to see all the things . . .
I recently subscribed to the Planner Add On Kit. It comes in a separate clear plastic bag (seen above).
The Add On Kit comes with a different “little roll of happy” than the main kit. Above is this months’ beautiful argyle-patterned washi in pink, yellow and orange called “Fall Argyle.”
This is a roller stamp from 1Canoe2 full of borders.
Above are die cuts designed by Just Jaime – cards, tabs, a banner, flags, foxes, mushrooms, mmmhmmmm.
Heart, fox and mushroom puffy clip toppers – these were in the main kit in the past, now are in the Planner Add On Kit – they are an ingenious version of double-sided clips.
The bag in the left picture holds the rest of the Kit. There is a sticker elements sheet, a general planner sticker sheet, and an extra planner sticker sheet, all designed by Just Jaimee. There are also two 3×4 notecards and a 4×6 notecard.
I got a few extras that came in the brown bag on the left. There’s a bag of yellow sequins called “Early Sunset,” a transparency set called “Woodland” (the rainbow polkadots and the dragonfly), a sheet of mushroom vellum, and a Dragonfly beaded planner charm.
And, here is the Dori Standard Kit that always comes in a muslin drawstring bag stamped with “Enjoy Every Day.”
Man, the creativity in these kits . . . I mean, this Simon Gnome notecard is adorable!!!
The washi tape this month is designed by arleigh, and it’s called “autumn diamonds.”
This is a mini stamp set designed by arleigh, called “Just This.”

Really . . . just . . . this . . .
How cute are these mushroom & dragonfly confetti pieces?
The six tab die cuts and planner die cuts (31 pieces) are designed by arleigh.
The Dori has a Kraft cover that you can decorate as you wish, and the pages include:
• Monthly Calendar
• 3 lined journaling pages
• 11 blank (with design) pages
• 10 graph pages with 3 sections
• 10 unlined pages with 3 sections
• Last page with design
The 3×5 notepad and the acorn sticky notes are designed by arleigh.
The wood veneer bookmark (A5 size, unpunched) can be colored with colored pencils or chalk (don’t use watercolors or markers – they bleed). It punches really easily with any hole punch.
The 5×7 planner sticker sheet and the date sticker sheet are designed by arleigh. And the tab label stickers are designed by Just Jaimee.
There are six 6×8 papers designed by arleigh.
Here’s a shot of the entire kit – brown, yellow, orange, green, red – lots of warm fall color.
I made a shaker out of the Simon card and one of the other cards, added some of the mushroom/dragonfly confetti and some sequins, punched an edge, and put it in my Erin Condren planner.
Here’s my monthly spread – this is my personal planner. See the dragonfly charm at the bottom?? So cool!!! The flower clip is from the August kit, and the green PenGem is from the May kit.
This is the 1st weeks’ spread. I punched part of the woodgrain bookmark (ugh! my WRMK Planner Punch kept jamming – the material is TOO thick!). I also cut the washi down on my paper trimmer so it wasn’t so wide – worked great!!!!

Planner Society Blue Floral Travelers Notebook

Hi Guys! Come on in and see what I’m doing today! I got my first Planner Society Blue Floral Travelers Notebook and Kit.

The scarlet lime Planner Society kits are my favorite because I LOVE vintage florals, which they always have plenty of . . .
Above is a view inside the box – see what I mean???? The paper bag has a beautiful blue floral design and can be used for dashboards, shakers, and pocket folders.

The muslin bag has a Planner Society girl stamped on it – really, how awesome is that????????
The Travelers Notebook is inside the muslin bag.
Ooooooo, here it is. Eeeeek, I. Love. It. The blue background . . . The handpainted design . . .
This is the inside – it has a pocket on either side and 4 gray elastic strings (plus an extra string).
The TN came with 3 inserts. The first one is for making weekly lists. I love how they’re separated into categories – must do, to do, personal, can’t forget, notes, and this week.
The 2nd insert says “be fabulous” at the top of each page and has a Planner Society girl stamped in the corner.
The 3rd insert has grids and says “hello beautiful” at the top of each page.
I love the shape of this TN – it has a really wide spine. It easily holds 4 inserts.
How pretty is this view???
I also got the coordinating TN Kit in this paper bag – don’t you just love the doily in the corner??? I mean, really . . .
This is a plastic bottle full of sequins – small and large round sequins, stars, flowers, and butterflies – they look awesome in shakers . . .
There are two coordinating bow clips.
And a fabric bow that clips on the outside rubber band.
The kit included 3 more inserts. The outsides are just as beautiful as the inside . . . This one has 4 boxes on each page with a heart & flourish at the top and a heart border on the bottom.
The 2nd insert has a dot grid and “Notes” with a heart flourish at the top of each page.
The 3rd insert is for “My Lists” and has heart checklist format along the side.
There are 3 mini sheets of washi in kit coordinating designs.
Above is a pocket and 3 journal/decorative cards, and a set of coordinating die cuts.
A full sheet of planner stickers . . . headers, days of the week, icons, flags, bows, deco.
Washi, quarter and half boxes.
Full boxes.
Finally, there are 2 sheets of vellum (stars and floral) and 1 sheet of acetate (butterflies).

Time to get this baby set up . . .

Here’s the bow clipped to the outside elastic.
I made a pocket folder out of the planner kit bag – the doily made a perfect pocket!!
And, I made a shaker out of one of the cards and some of the sequins – not functional at all, but oh so pretty . . .

ChicSparrow Outlander Deluxe Time Traveler

Hi Guys! Come on in and see what I’m doing today! I ordered a ChicSparrow Outlander Deluxe Time Traveler, and it is finally here (it only took about a week, but still . . . )!!!

It came in this mailer and has their stamp up in the corner – see the feather in their name? Aaaaaaagggggghhhhhh! Open, Open, Open . . .
This is what was inside the mailer – Item Description, their business card, a leather sample, 3 die cut stickers, checklist for mine, a dustcover, and the notebook.
My book is wrapped in this realllllllly soft, and I mean realllllllly soft, dustcover.
And, here she is . . . in a beautiful midnight blue . . . I think I’ll just admire it for a minute . . .

Oooooooo, the smell of the leather . . . It’s just too much . . .
It’s stitched with white thread and engraved using the Goudy cursive font – now it’s mine forever . . .
Here is a description of the Outlander from their website:
▪ Drum-dyed for rich tones
▪ Beautiful supple full grain, oil-tanned leather
▪ Four strands of elastic on all sizes, except plus sizes which have six strands, for securing inserts
▪ Center spine closure
▪ Features range marks adding to this beautiful rustic notebook
▪ Lightweight
▪ Wonderfully floppy
▪ Designer pockets
There are several sizes to choose from (Nano, Passport, Passport Plus, Pocket, Pocket Plus, A6, Personal, B6 Slim, B6, Narrow, Wide, A5, and Composition).

I got Narrow, and above is a screenshot of the information available about this size on their website – they tell you what size inserts will fit, show you the outside (notice the grid in the background for the size), and the two versions available for the inside.
Here is the inside with an insert. I love all the pockets, 3 small and 2 full size and there’s also a penholder in this particular notebook.

It is unbelievably soft, and the more you use it the softer and more supple it gets.

ChicSparrow is a company that will help you customize your notebook, all you have to do is ask them and they will make it for you.

They also have other leather products – bags (canvas and leather), key fobs, die cut stickers, cup holders, stickers, and so much more – check out their website.

We R Memory Keepers Planner Punch Board

Hi Guys! Come on in and see what I’m doing today! I’m demonstrating the We R Memory Keepers Planner Punch Board.

Above is a pic of the Planner Punch Board – the set comes with five hole punches that connect together, which is great for storage.
This is a view of the bottom side of the punches.
Inside the punch board is an opening that has teeth at the back that the punches fit into, and numbers on the front for punch and paper alignment.
The underneath side of the board has a label that includes the directions, paper size and the alignment settings for the punches.
I’m punching holes for a Carpe Diem A5. Per the chart on the bottom of the Punch Board, my punches are at the 11, 21 and 31 positions – line the arrows up with the numbers.
In the left photo, I lined my paper up with the notch on the left side and punched the three holes (these will be at the bottom of the page).
Then, I flipped the paper paper over (this will be the top of my page) and punched the 3 holes.
Here is the dashboard in my Carpe Diem.
There is also a set of 3 punches available for planners and notebooks that have a coil. Two of them have rounded holes and one of them has a square hole.
I labeled the punches with how many holes per inch they each will punch, as well as which planners they will work for. I don’t have any planners that use the 3 holes per inch punch. . .
For these punches, the punch is placed at the center of the Punch Board.
The holes will be punched the entire length of the paper, so it is lined up at the Center line and punched – left and center pics.

Then I lined the punched holes up with the picture on the punch (right picture) and continued all along the entire length of the paper.
This is what it looks like when it’s finished.

The coiled planner punches is why I bought the Planner Punch Board – now I can add bookmarks, dashboards and journal cards directly into my planner.

Yeah, now THAT’S what I’m talkin’ about!!!

August 2017 Paper Panduh Adventure Awaits Kit

Hi Guys! Come on in and see what I’m doing today! It’s the August 2017 Paper Panduh “Adventure Awaits” Kit.

This is a monthly planner kit that includes items that follow a theme (this month is adventure) – let’s see what the Panduh’s sent . . .
Here is a view inside the box. There’s a large sticker inside the lid and two layers of tissue – yellow and blue – and some awesome-looking things on top of the blue tissue paper.
Above are a dark gray pen – it has a fine felt tip – and two notecards. One card has flowers on a navy background and the other has a pink and brown plaid design. They are tied together with a piece of twine.
This is a notepad with a little golfer-type pencil in a matchbox style cover.
On the left is the blue tissue and on the right is what’s underneath.
How pretty is this flower pin?
“always take the scenic route” is written on one side of this card with a blue tree design.

On the other side of the card is a note from the Panduh’s – oooo, next month’s box theme is Paper Panduh Favorites. I. Can’t. Wait.

They are extending an invitation to their Facebook page and explaining their Photo Contest.
There are two sheets of stickers from lmaeplans – quarter, half, and full boxes, flags, deco, icons, headers, and checklists.
In the Carpe Diem package are 4 sheets of number stickers – I’m always looking for number stickers!!!! Believe it or not, they’re pretty difficult to find . . .
Here are 2 sheets of stickers from the creekside collection at oneCanoetwo. These stickers are thick cardstock – a lot like Thickers.
This is a sticker pad from Paper House and is full of travel stickers.
Here is a pic of the entire August 2017 Paper Panduh Kit.
This is the month-on-two-pages spread in my Social Media planner. The washi is from my stash – the green lace washi matched the green in the stickers perfectly!
The 1st day of the month isn’t until Friday, so I had extra space to fill. I covered the pages with dark blue paper, attached the sticker from the box and the card from the Kit on the left.

On the right, I put a full box at the bottom and an airplane sticker above it. Then I drew an airplane path and some clouds with a white marker. Yeah, this was fun, lol.
Finally, I made a planner charm from the twine and pin. All I did was tie the twine on the coil and knot the ends, and then pinned the pin on (I added some E6000 to keep the pin from coming undone.
