January 2018 scribbleprintsco Mystery Ultimate Kit

Hi Guys! Come on in and see what I’m doing today! Here’s the January 2018 scribbleprintsco Mystery Ultimate Kit. This is a monthly planner sticker subscription kit.

The sticker on the back of the mailer gives a hint of the kits’ theme. Looks like pink, gold, glitter (of course), ribbon, hmm, she’s holding a string, a balloon??? Let’s see . . .
Here’s a pic of what’s inside – the kit comes in a clear envelope. Yep, balloons . . . for a celebration?? The post it notes are a subscriber exclusive – which means you only get them if you’re a subscriber of the Ultimate Kit.
There is always a full sheet of glitter stickers that includes washi, flags and quarter boxes – it is available ala carte in her shop. The fashion girls come in various skin tones and is available ala carte in her shop.

The small sheet with the envelopes are also available in her shop ala carte – I’m going to use them to remind myself to send out my cards. The small deco sheet is a freebie in the kit.
The middle full sheet has habit trackers, appointment labels, quarter and half boxes, and four large sequin half boxes.

The left sheet has eight full boxes that can be used separately or together – some of them have banners along the top edge that fit together.

The right sheet has bottom washi, date strips and an extra full box.
On the left is the functional sheet with habit trackers, icons, flags, appointment labels, heart checklists, heart flags, and a sequin weekend banner.

On the right is a full page of deco, icons, dinosaurs, and other labels.
Little things and washi stickers are on the left in pink, bronze, gray and gold. On the right is a full sheet of ombre heart checklists. And, in the center is a full sheet of patterned washi and little things headers.
The above card is a new addition to the kit this month – it feels like a reminder that there’s always something to celebrate – not necessarily a birthday, anniversary or holiday. Just every day celebrations . . . Nice concept . . .
Here’s a shot of the entire kit – I love when the guesswork of coordinating elements is taken care of for me. I mean, really . . . look at those beautiful colors!!
Here’s the kit in my February planner – how pretty is this????? Look at all that glitter!!! Ugh, my pretty planning space!

2017 December Daily Final Week

Hi Guys! Come on in and see what I’m doing today! I’m working on my 2017 December Daily Final Week.

I got a kit from Layle Koncar that includes instructions, a binder, inserts, a roller stamp, plaid washi, numbers, jingle bells, paper, stickers, cardstock die cuts and patterned paper. I did all the foundation pages beforehand – now all I have to do is add my pictures and journal the stories.

This is the final installment of my 2017 December Daily – I made it to the end, Yayyyyyyy!!!
The 24th is our Christmas card. We take group pictures in the summer and use it for ourChristmas card. On the back is a pic of us with our grandchildren from last Christmas.

Christmas Day has changed drastically in the last few years – no more children. However, our youngest son does come over Christmas morning – he’s not married yet – and spends the day.
The day after Christmas we took a road trip to Madison, Wisconsin and Shorewood, Illinois to see our grandchildren – they loved showing us what they got.
The 27th shows my favorite daily beverage – hot tea. How cute is that tea postcard on the right?
Flat Top Grill is still our favorite restaurant. We also have a favorite waitress named Maggie – she’s adorable. She knows what we want – she gets our drinks while we’re loading up our bowls.
I love to read and showing what I read this year is a fun overview of the variety of books. My granddaughter is a big reader and all she asked for this year were books.
My family’s Christmas party is always the weekend after Christmas. This year it was at my sister’s and the day began with a bunch of snow – our dog is playing in it in the right pic.
We finished the year with a cocktail out with our friends at Mad Anthony’s (of course).

Goodbye 2017. Hello 2018.

2017 December Daily Fourth Week

Hi Guys! Come on in and see what I’m doing today! I’m working on my 2017 December Daily Fourth Week.

I got a kit from Layle Koncar that includes instructions, a binder, inserts, a roller stamp, plaid washi, numbers, jingle bells, paper, stickers, cardstock die cuts and patterned paper. I did all the foundation pages beforehand – now all I have to do is add my pictures and journal the stories.
Day 17 is about traditions – we have many . . . There are things we do every year during this season that are important to us. I think we started a new one on the 19th . . .
The 18th is about my oldest daughter’s family – the kids talking to Santa – pics of them – their Christmas wish tag. It’s amazing how much people change through the years . . .
On the 19th we went to the Nite Lites in Brooklyn, Michigan for the first time – it was so awesome, we’ll be doing this again . . . There were so many pics, I did a waterfall of them (center) picture.
This year I added pics of our family’s pets – this is Lulu the Basset Hound . . .
The 21st was our family Christmas at my daughter’s. I printed pictures and put them in a pocket I made out of a postcard from the kit. I also added the red and white paper clip for decoration.
The 22nd is for my son Ed’s family – he’s married, but no children, except for their sweet puppy (on the next page). The “J” tag is from the gift they gave me.
This is Khalisee, Ed & Leah’s puppy. She’s a boxer mix and this is one of the few pictures of her where you can actually see her ears, lol.

Stay tuned for the final week in my 2017 December Daily.

December 2017 scarlet lime Planner Society Kit

Hi Guys! Come on in and see what I’m doing today! The December 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 inside of the box – what is that on the left??????

The Washi Tape Kit comes with three rolls of washi that are 30mm, 15mm, and 10mm wide. The roll on the left is a pink floral that looks like an animal print.

The washi tape in the center is black and white check/plaid.

The wide washi has a large floral design with a navy background.

This is the Box Sticker Society Kit. It includes a half sheet of full boxes, a half sheet of clipboard stickers, a half sheet of half boxes, quarter boxes, and washi strips, and a half sheet of decorative and functional stickers.

The stickers are designed to fit in the Erin Condren, Inkwell Press, Paper Source planner, Happy Planner, and box style inserts from some etsy shops. The full boxes are 1.5” x 2”.
Eeeeek! I got a B6 TN in this kit as an extra. It has a pink floral design on the outside and a light pink string. The inside has two pockets, a black and white vine design and four pink strings for inserts. What a delightful, unexpected extra!!
The bag that holds the kit has the same design as the TN.
First up are a globe sticky note pad and a pen with a matching floral design on the barrel and white sparkly crystals.
On the left are large tabs with text – six in the kits’ designs and six in gold foil. On the right are 12 tabs, also in the kits’ designs, and four sheets of tab labels.
There are five cards – three of them have flowers that hang off the edges – they are awesome!! Also, there are four clear adhesive pockets in the kits’ designs.
I love it when there are things that create dimension, like the “plan” and “hello” rhinestone stickers. In the middle is a roll of washi tape in the main design and two felt flower clips – Bee-you-tee-fullll!!!!!
There are lots of die cuts – flowers (of course), bows, cups, planners, pens, macaroons, and clothes (not sure why they put clothes in here . . .).
This paper bag has my favorite design from this kit – it’s flowers, but they look like an animal print . . . Inside are four sheets of deco stickers.
The top pic shows the six designs of paper – the bottom is one sheet of acetate and two sheets of vellum.
Here’s a shot of the whole kit – navy, pink, gold foil, flowers, globes.
This is the kit on my month-on-two-pages spread. I use this planner for my project and blog planning.
And, this is the first week spread where I break my projects and blogs down into weekly to-do’s.
These are the dashboards I made out of the paper – the top is the front side and the bottom is the backside.

2017 December Daily Third Week

Hi Guys! Come on in and see what I’m doing today! I’m working on my 2017 December Daily Third Week.

I got a kit from Layle Koncar that includes instructions, a binder, inserts, a roller stamp, plaid washi, numbers, jingle bells, paper, stickers, cardstock die cuts and patterned paper. I did all the foundation pages beforehand – now all I have to do is add my pictures and journal the story.
Here we go . . . This is Day 10 for my grandson Liam who is 6 1/2 years old. He lost a front tooth – such a childhood milestone . . .
Day 11 is of my newest granddaughter Bridget – she was born in September and starting to smile and giggle – sooooo cute!!
Day 12 is my oldest granddaughter, Annabelle, who is 10 this year. For Christmas, she wants books, books, and more books, lol.
Day 13 is from work. I’ve worked there for a year and these, seriously, are the most generous, nicest, fun people.
Day 14 is of our tree – I found the poem on the right from the Internet and loved it. I used an app called ‘Capture the Magic’ to add an overlay of sparkling light circles to the owl ornament on the left.
Day 15 is a recipe for Creme de Menthe brownies I make every year.
Finally, Day 16 is Starbucks. I love how they make design cups specifically for the holidays. The top photo shows this years’ cup design, their cookie, and a treat bag.

The bottom pic is some free stickers I downloaded from Google Images – the long sticker is of the cups from last year. On the right is a gift card you can put on a key ring – how cool is that????

Stay tuned for Week 4 . . .

Hi Guys! Come on in and see what I’m doing today! The January 2018 Cocoa Daisy Dori Standard kit “Maps” is here!!!

Above is the distinctive yellow polka-dotted box – looks like it had quite a journey, lol.
Inside is some bright yellow crinkle paper.
This is a new card – honestly, I haven’t even noticed the card recently. I looked back and I haven’t been taking pics of them . . . The ones I found are business card size and say “Hello” or “Smile” on them . . . I like this . . .
I subscribed to the Classified kit – no sneaks – I like having a little surprise every month . . .
Ooooo, this is what’s inside . . .
This is an acrylic stamp – looks like a coffee ring, right? Not sure about the small one . . .
Black and white striped washi tape.
Simon P.B. Card – how cute is that????
Arrow stickers, hexagon stickers, and an acetate sheet with a world map design.
Finally are these badges that you can make a planner charm and a paper clip with.
Above is the Planner Add On Kit – none of these items are in the Planner Kit – it comes in a clear plastic bag.
“a little roll of happy” called Longitude.
Cream Tag sticky notes – and a SURPRISE!!!! I believe this is the “Skinny Dip” PenGems pen. I wonder what the “completely different plan” was . . .
The two adhesive-backed pockets are new items, and there are four map-patterned binder clips.
On the left are die cuts designed by Just Jaimee.

On the right are two 3×4 notecards and one 4×6 notecard. There are also three sheets of stickers, an extra planner sticker sheet, a general planner sticker sheet, and a sticker elements sheet, all designed by Just Jaimee.
After all that, I’m not even to the Planner Kit!! Above is the muslin bag and a map-patterned pencil pouch.
First up, are two Map fabric bows (they’re a soft velour fabric), one is a paper clip and the other has a charm clasp.

The Blue Tag sticky notes and 3×5 notepad were designed by arleigh – I love the dots – they help me write in a straight line . . . AND they’re pretty . . .
The six tab die cuts and the planner die cuts were designed by arleigh.
Cocoa Daisy exclusive Map washi tape by arleigh
How cool are these? Simon & Betty “trading cards” – yep, they’re new . . .
This is the Cocoa Daisy Dori – it has a Kraft cover that you can decorate. I use this to track what I eat and when I exercise.
The pages included are:
• A 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 has the luggage tag design
More stickers – a 5×7 planner sticker sheet, a date sticker sheet designed by arleigh, and a tab label sticker sheet designed by Just Jaimee.

Cocoa Daisy has the best color combinations.
Finally, there are six 6×8 papers designed by arleigh – it’s really, really busy – I think I would like a few with more subtle designs.
Here’s a shot of the entire kit.
This is my daily planner for keeping track of my work schedule, birthdays, anniversaries, events, etc. I love working in a pretty space, don’t you?
This is the first week spread. I used my We R Memory Keepers planner punch to punch the side of one of the papers and attached one of the clear pockets on it. Perfect for holding the cards and the sticky notes.

I got a kit from Layle Koncar that includes instructions, a binder, inserts, a roller stamp, plaid washi, numbers, jingle bells, paper, stickers, cardstock die cuts and patterned paper. I did all the foundation pages beforehand – now all I have to do is add my pictures and journal the story.

Day 5 is my grandson’s page – he was decorating cookies in the left picture. On the right is a drawing of his family he made at school – I loved that he included Nana and Papa – how sweet is that????

On the right he’s making a gingerbread house.
Day 6 is my daughter and son-in-law and the good news we received this year.

December 2017 scribbleprintsco Mystery Ultimate Kit

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

The large sticker on the back of the mailer gives a hint of the kits’ theme.

Looks like pastel gray and pink flowers . . . I LOVE the flowers . . .
The kit comes with a full set of stickers and a sticky note pad that coordinates with the colors and theme of the kit. The coordinating sticky notes are only available in this kit (which means you can’t buy them in the shop).
Above are mini sheets of alarm clocks, bathing dinos, and a freebie sampler in the kits’ colors. There is also a full sampler sheet – it has Lush bath bomb stickers – how cool is that?
On the left is a full box with a lit candle, the bottom washi, and the days of the week.

On the right are 8 full boxes – “stay in bed” – love that . . . The marble background is elegant and beautiful!!
The left full sheet has heart checklists on marble backgrounds. The sheet on the right has trackers, flags, icons, and checklist flags. The bottom sheet is habit trackers, flags, quarter boxes and half boxes.
On the left is solid washi and headers, on the right are the glitter washi strips, flags, and quarter boxes (available in her shop ala carte), and the bottom full sheet is marble washi and headers.
Here’s a shot of the entire kit – such prettiness – I love the colors, the flowers, and especially, the glitter . . .
This is a week-on-two-pages spread in my daily planner. I usually don’t decorate in a “no white space” style, but I like to use my scribble prints kits in this way for a change of pace in the middle of the month. What do you think?

2017 December Daily First Week

Hi Guys! Come on in and see what I’m doing today! I’m working on my 2017 December Daily First Week.

I got a kit from Layle Koncar that includes instructions, a binder, inserts, a roller stamp, plaid washi, numbers, jingle bells, paper, stickers, cardstock die cuts and patterned paper. I will also use embellishments from my stash – which I happen to have a lot of, lol.

Above is the introduction – on the left is the inside of the cover. I glued a piece of patterned cardstock to the inside, added ’17 and a photo. The photo is of an ornament from my tree. I used an awesome app called ‘Capture the Magic’ to put a sparkly overlay on the photo that literally . . . makes it sparkle.

On the right is ‘the reason why’ – there are LOTS of ways to do this, and I like short and sweet. I got the acetate on the right from a Cocoa Daisy monthly subscription kit and layered it over a piece of cream cardstock.
The left photo shows me, my daughters, and my newest grandchild after Black Friday shopping – missed my daughter-in-law this year . . .

On the right is our first 2017 Christmas party – so fun journaling on a postcard.
I have gone to the Lambs Farm Craft Show at Arlington Racecourse in Arlington Heights, Illinois (it used to be at the Rosemont Convention Center) almost every year for 30+ years. It’s a great girls day . . .
I made an awesome SVGCuts Heirloom Christmas Tree this year and wanted to put it in my book. I’ll link my blog where I show the process I used to make it.
This is a filler page that I used Stickles Diamond glitter glue to embellish – made it all glittery. Ach, Love It!!

Having the foundation pages completed beforehand is making this so, so easy. Stay tuned for the next week . . .

2017 December Daily Foundation Pages

Hi Guys! Come on in and see what I’m doing today! I’m working on my 2017 December Daily Foundation Pages. Once the foundation pages are set up, all I have to do is add my photos and journaling.

I got a kit from Layle Koncar that includes instructions, a binder, inserts, a roller stamp, plaid washi, numbers, jingle bells, paper, stickers, cardstock die cuts and patterned paper.

Above is the inside of the cover – I haven’t decided what to put there yet . . . a special picture of something that happens this month . . .

On the right is “the reason why” – my introduction to the book – and a sheet of acetate from my December Cocoa Daisy Kit that serves as a background.
This is Day 1 – it’s a circle with a slice off one side and an awesome vintage Santa smiling at me . . .
I’m combining two spreads together so there aren’t so many pictures. The top shows Day 1 on the left – the ‘comfort and joy’ card folds back to show a picture, and Day 2 on the right is part of a 2×2 pocket page.

The bottom pic on the left is the backside of Day 2 and a full page of a snow-covered tree is on the right.
Top left is Day 3 – a lined page and on the right is Day 4, which is a numbered ‘making a list’ page.

The bottom left is a small insert for a pic and on the right is Day 5, where I stamped ‘Happy Holidays’ repeatedly all over the 5 die cut.
The top pic of Day 6 has a space for a pic on the left and a journaling card, and the ‘we wish you a merry Christmas’ card flips up to reveal the 6.

On the bottom is Day 7 with a place for a smaller pic on the left and an awesome DECEMBER cutout insert on the right.
Day 8 is a simple two-page spread with graph paper – this makes lining up photos and writing the story a snap.

At the bottom is Day 9 with a full page on the left for photos, and on the right is a pocket with a tag I can pull out for journaling.
The Day 10 page at the top photo folds out to the right, and the bottom shows Day 11 on the left and Day 12 on the right – I’m going to make it a shaker on the left edge under the 12.
Day 13 is the cup of hot cocoa -there’s a space for 2 4×4 pics. The bottom is Day 14 – not really sure what I’m going to do with the calendar . . .
Day 15 is at the top with a full graph page on the right for photos and journaling.

And Day 16 is on the bottom with a full page of wood planks on the left and room for two 3×4 pics in the right pockets.
The top photo has room for 2 photos for Day 17 and a place to list traditions on the insert to the right.

The bottom photo is Day 18 – space for a small photo and some journaling.
Day 19 is at the top – the left side has room for journaling and the right side has a pocket for a photo.

The bottom is for Day 20 – plenty of room for a photo and journaling on the left, and a pocket for cards, tickets, stickers, or whatever I collect.
In the top pic are Day 21 and 22. For Day 21, I made a pocket out of the postcard, and Day 22 needs a 4×4 pic with the green gingham as a border.

The bottom pic is for Day 23, there’s a space for a 4×4 pic on the left.
Day 24 is at the top – there’s space for a pic on the green gingham and on the right are three pockets and space for journaling.

The bottom pic is for Christmas Day – since our kids are grown up and have their own family Christmas’s, we go to church and sometimes a movie, perfect place to record whatever we do that day . . .
More space for Christmas Day pics in the top pic and the bottom left page. The Christmas Countdown is an extra page – since I use a calendar, not sure what I’ll do with this . ..
Here’s the inside of the back cover – I made a pocket for any extra stuff – stickers, tags, extra pics. I will still add two days from November at the beginning (Black Friday and a family Christmas party), and December 26 to 31 (extra things I want to add, our final family Christmas party is December 30, and New Year’s Eve).

There it is, all set up – since the designing is done, all I have to do is document our 2017 Christmas memories. Can’t wait . . .
