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.

May 2017 Cocoa Daisy Dori Standard Kit

Hi Guys! Come on in and see what I’m doing today! The May 2017 Cocoa Daisy Dori Standard kit is here!!! WooHoo!!!!

“You’ve Got Happy Mail” – this is what I call any packages I get, and I even have my husband calling it that now, lol. How about that yellow tissue paper, huh?

According to their website, the May “collection is all about sprouts and shoots and butterflies.”

Hello Spring!! Let’s see what’s inside. . .
The kit comes in a muslin bag with “Enjoy Every Day” on it.
The view when the tissue paper is folded away – mmmmmmm, greeeeeeen!!!
3×5 notepad by arleigh – I LOVE that the lines look hand-drawn
Leaf sticky notes by arleigh – they always have the cutest sticky notes
An exclusive custom-color Pengem – eek, my first Pengem – I. Love. It.
Clip topper puffy stickers with clips – these are really awesome – I LOVE that they are two-sided.
“a little roll of happy” washi tape by arleigh with a blue and yellow Moroccan tile design.
I get the standard-size Dori with a Kraft cover.
The pages included are:

• 3 lined journaling pages
• 11 blank (with design) pages

Planner Paper Bag Pockets

Hi Guys! Come on in and see what I’m doing today! I am making Planner Paper Bag Pockets. I am always at a loss as to what to do with the extra stickers and ephemera that come in kits – translation:  I usually can’t find them when I want them . . .

I found a possible solution on “The Planner Society #officialgroup” Facebook page. Violet Ballew uploaded a video showing how to make the above pocket pages out of the bag that comes in The Planner Society Kit.
Here we go . . . I want my pocket page to fit in my A5 planner. The left photo shows a page from my planner and the paper bag that came in the March kit.

In the center pic, I clipped the page to the bag – cutting it this way keeps the left and bottom edges of the bag intact, effortlessly creating part of the pockets.

In the right pic, I cut the bag to size.
Next, in the left pic, I cut an “L” shape from the top layer, leaving about 1/3 intact – also leaving an edge on the left will reinforce the page when punched.

I used my ATG in the center pic, putting adhesive on the cutout piece.

In the right pic, I glued the cutout piece to the back of the page – the bottom pocket is done.
Then I chose a different patterned piece of paper, and cut it to the size of the desired pocket in the left pic.

The right pic shows the pocket in place – make sure you only put adhesive on the side and bottom edges – you want to make sure it will open – yep, learned this the hard way . . .
I used my minc to laminate the page – I set it on 5 and ran it through twice. Then I trimmed the extra laminate off around the edges.
Using a craft knife, I carefully slit the laminate along the top edges of the pockets.
Punched the holes on the left edge.
And, here’s my finished Paper Bag Pocket with stickers, stencils, and journal cards in the pockets. It literally took about 15 minutes to make this from start to finish – including heating the minc. Now that’s a quick and easy project!

March 2017 Paper Panduh Kit “Hello Spring”

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

Every kit has a personalization and above is this months’ – it’s a teapot sticker with my name on it . . . Ugh, how awesome is that????

Tea is one of my most favorite things in the world!!
Here’s the inside of the box . . . I’m just going to leave this here for a minute . . .
“Tea is always a good idea.”

On the back of this card is an invitation to post your planner spread with a #plannerbox hashtag, an invitation to join the Paper Panduh Facebook group, and a photo contest. There is also a coupon code for 15% off a shop order. It’s good until April 15, 2017, feel free to use it.
Here’s a shot of the inside of the box. I love the journal – you can color the cover – how pretty.

I see washi . . .
This is the inside of the journal. I LOVE the uneven lines – makes it look like they were hand drawn.

Also, isn’t that pen beautiful? Light blue with gold polka dots.
The super fine point pens are my favorite – It’s a 0.38 mm.
Lots of stickers – the top left are from Sunshine Sticker Co – they’re typical planner stickers. The ones in the top right box are heidi swapp – she’s one of my favorite designers – I love the roses!?!?!

The bottom left stickers are sentence strips, and the stickers in the bottom right box have gold foil accents – wouldn’t these work great on a greeting card????
Isn’t this little pink mesh drawstring bag adorable? It holds all the die cuts – tea related – in the right pic as well as a roll of pink rose washi. I love washi!!!
Here’s a shot of the entire kit – so, so pretty.

I Love Pretty . . .

March 2017 scarlet lime Planner Society Kit

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

Every month I get this kit and think it’s the most beautiful kit I’ve ever seen . . . then I get the next month’s . . .

Seriously, my pics do not do the designs credit. They are pink, black and have splashes of rose gold – simply beautiful!!
This is my first month subscribing to the Washi Tape kit. Above on the left are the three rolls of washi and the bag they came in (it has the same design as one of the rolls of washi). On the right are the washi rolls:  black floral, pink and rose gold marble, and light pink with rose gold diamonds.
Yes . . . the kit is inside this absolutely beautiful paper bag!!!!
On the left are three specialty papers – one sheet of acetate and two sheets of vellum. On the right are six sheets of cardstock – you can use these to make dashboards, decorate your pages, make folders, pockets, and many more undiscovered projects.
These are the first page flags I’ve gotten in a kit since I started in July, 2016. They are the same designs as the papers – except no pineapples.
The clips are like bobby pins – they are super tight and hold really well.
You get 12 tabs that match the kit designs and 4 sheets of labels – 2 sets of each. I use the tabs to label my weeks, so I don’t use the labels.
Above are a pen with glitter in the barrel, a roll of beautiful washi, and a planner charm that can be used in a ring-bound planner (with the chain attached), or can be hooked on to a travelers notebook.
There are two stencils and a set of acrylic stamps. I saw that someone used a soft marker (Copic-like) on the stencils and it looked great! I tried a pen with a long point, and that worked okay, but I didn’t particularly like the way it looked – the marker looked better.
These are the diecuts – a lot of people laminate them and make planner clips or page magnets out of them. I usually glue them throughout the month in my planner.
Above are six journaling/inspirational cards.
I love the planner pouches you get in these kits – they’re pretty (most important) and also very roomy.
Check out the paper bag on the left – looks like a tufted piece of furniture – love it! Inside are 6 mini sheets of stickers.
Here’s a shot of the entire kit – just look at all that metallic sparkle!!!!
Above is a shot of my month-on-two-pages spread. April doesn’t start until Saturday, so I covered most of the first row with the wide washi, as well as most of the bottom row. On the right, I made a dashboard out of the pink and rose gold acetate – I ran a piece of washi down both sides of the acetate before hole punching, to help keep it from tearing.
The first week of the month only has two days, so I created a dashboard (on the left) by layering a piece of vellum over a piece of the cardstock, and then decorated it with one of the journal cards, some page flags, washi, die cuts, and stickers. I love, love, love how pretty this came out!
I used the WRMK Envelope Punch Board to make a small pocket (on the right side) to hold the sticker sheets, stencils and stamp set. I saw a video on how to make a pocket page out of the paper bags from the kit . . .  I see a project coming on, lol.

April 2017 Cocoa Daisy Dori Standard Kit

Hi Guys! Come on in and see what I’m doing today! Here is the April 2017 Cocoa Daisy Dori Standard kit.

There are three different Dori size subscriptions – standard, personal and mini – I get the standard size.

Above is the sticker from the outside of the mailer box – not sure if I’ve said this before, but daisies are my favorite flower . . .
Here’s a peek inside the box – love that polka dotted tissue paper.

The kits always come in a muslin bag stamped with “Enjoy Every Day.”

Every kit includes a 3×5 notepad designed by arleigh, and a pad of sticky notes, also designed by arleigh. The colors in this months’ kit definitely say spring – bright yellow, light blue, and multiple shades of lime green.
Above is a yellow bow clip from Peonies Paperie, and three clip topper stickers with clips.
There are planner die cuts designed by Just Jaimee of dandelions and butterflies, and six tab die cuts also designed by Just Jaimee.
Above is the polka dotted washi tape designed by arleigh – “a little roll of happy.”
Here is an etched wood bookmark that says “without change there would be no butterflies.” Do Not Use Markers on this – it bleeds terribly!!!!
Above is the Dori – I use it for my business notes. It has a kraft cover and includes:
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, and the last page has a design in the theme.
You get 6 Cocoa Daisy exclusive 6×8 papers by Valorie Wibbens.
Above are a 5×7 planner sticker sheet by arleigh, a date sticker sheet by arleigh, and tab label stickers by Just Jaimee.
Here’s the entire kit. I love, love, love the yellow, green and blue color combo!!!
Above is the month spread in my neutral Erin Condren. I used the paper in the kit to cover the top and side bar. The ‘April’ is a diecut from Peachy Cheap that I cutout out of Close To My Heart Canary cardstock.
This is a weekly spread – notice the pocket clipped to the upper right page.
Here’s a closeup of the pocket. I used my We R Memory Keepers Envelope Punch Board to make an envelope, cut the top flap off and clipped it to the page. I’m using it hold my stickers during the month.

Really . . . Those colors!!!!

March 2017 scribbleprintsco Mystery Ultimate Kit

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

Look how pretty the sticker is on the mailer – pink and yellow flowers with bright green leaves and light blue accents.
This sticker is on the clear cellophane bag holding the kit – a book and sunglasses. Just had to show you . . .

Andrea reveals this month’s theme as “beachy spring break.” Honestly, I don’t have to go anywhere for a spring break adventure – my backyard, a good book, and some peace and quiet . . . I’m saving this kit for the summer . . .
The sheet on the left is deco, icons, numbers, and appointment times. On the right is a pad of sticky notes with the same design as the sticker on the outside of the mailer – bee-you-tee-ful!!
Here are this months’ freebies – from the left is a sheet of functional planner stickers, a sheet of various colored polaroid cameras, and silver glitter headers.
The sheet on the left has habit trackers, flags, quarter and half boxes. On the right is a functional sheet – check out the glitter “weekend” sticker . . . Oh Yeah . . . there’s no such thing as too much glitter!!!!!
On the left is the patterned washi and headers, and on the right are the bottom washi, and an extra full box (of bikini tops – how awesome is that?).
The left sheet has the hombre heart checklists, and the right sheet has labels, solid washi, and little things.
Finally, on the left is a sheet of full boxes – check out the silver glitter accents and how about the double boxes on the top right of the sheet???? You can use them together or separately – although the right box would have a random arm in it . . .

And, on the right are four ladies in clam shells – you have a choice of skin tone and hair color – talk about customizing . . .

February 2017 Paper Panduh Kit

Hi Guys! Come on in and see what I’m doing today! It’s the February 2017 Paper Panduh Kit “let’s go on an adventure.”

Above is what you see when you open the box – a girl standing in front of ‘That Pink Door’ in Palm Springs, California, a wide pink satin ribbon tied around teal tissue paper, and a customized sticker of a flamingo floatie holding an afternoon latte.
Here’s a closeup of the sticker on the lid.
And a closeup of the sticker holding the tissue paper together. She always customizes the kit in someway and this months’ is a sticker with a “j” written on the drink cup.
Inside this first layer of tissue paper is a card that says “life is a party” on one side and on the other side has a note from Emma including a discount coupon on her site, Panduh News and a Photo Contest.
There are two sheets of Paper Panduh stickers.
Two sheets of stickers from Oh Hey Sticker Co. made specifically for the Panduh Box.
Check out this amy tangerine sticker book. It has 421 stickers – whoa, that’s a LOT of stickers.
Adventure stickers.
There were two versions of washi – I got the one with succulents on it. In the center pic are a paper clip with a palm frond and a pair of sunglasses, and a “Planner Vibes” pin from Paper Moon Collective. In the right pic is a pen with a lavender cookie attached to the cap. Adorable!!!!
Finally, here is a set of adventure diecuts – ice pops, flowers, flamingoes, ice cream . . .
Here’s a photo of the entire kit. It is so incredibly full of fun and adventure!!!!

Here’s the month spread – I use this planner to track my social media. How pretty is this combo of green and pink?

February 2017 scarlet lime Planner Society Kit

Hi Guys! Come on in and see what I’m doing today! Here is the February 2017 scarlet lime Planner Society kit. The colors this month are so beautifully complementary – pink, purple, green and yellow.

Above is a pic of what you see when you open the box – the paper bag’s design is a preview of what’s to come in the kit – florals (of course), and this awesome color combination.
This month came with some specialty papers – the left is acetate with blue bows, the center and right pics show the vellum.
Above are 6 double-sided papers. Eeeek, so, so, so pretty!!
How about this sweet planner bag? It has a snap on the outside and a zipper on the inside – it’s also incredibly roomy.
The kit always comes with 12 tabs and 4 sheets of clear stickers.
This is a sticky note pad in the shape of a mason jar – I saw a video where someone made these into a shaker card. There’s also a pen (with a super fine point) customized with designs from the kit.
This is a stamp set of banners you cause use as headers.
Washi tape that is also customized to go with the kit.
Three bow paperclips.
A set of diecuts – I included the card from the packaging because it can be trimmed and used as a journal card.
This is new!! There are two pocket cards (somehow I got an extra, hurray!!) and two shaker cards – ugh, I. Love. These.
Finally, in this adorable pink paper bag are two sheets of decorative stickers.
Here’s a pic of the entire kit – I love how they coordinate the themes (bows, florals, mason jars) and the colors throughout the kit. Also, you really get your money’s worth with The Planner Society.

Above is the monthly spread – such a pretty space to work in, don’tcha think????
