DIY Planner

I decided that I wanted a planner to just help me remember important dates, appointments, and things I need to keep on top of for 2014. I’m not sure why but I became inspired to make my own planner. I just two chipboard pieces, covered them with patterned paper and decided to cut a ton of paper in the same shape for the inside. It was quite a long process (initially I thought this would be a short project…boy, was I wrong!) but I like the product in the end. My planner is super simple with pages for notes , calendars for each month of 2014, and a section to keep track of my social media ventures, projects, and addresses. I’m hoping this planner will help me keep on top of life and maybe even keep me posting more regularly to my blog! I posted a couple pictures below of the planner cover and a couple of the digi images I colored for each month’s cover page.






Sodalicious Inspired Layout

I’m always on the lookout for any scrappy designer that is my style. I like things that are bit different and just original and funky. I have fallen in love with the company Sodalicious. I believe they are based out of Poland but their style is so unique. Simple patterns, mostly in black and white and …just out there. I love them. I decided to do a layout with some of the new Amy Tan products and other goodies that reminded me of some of the layouts on the Sodalicious blog.



And here’s some more close-ups of the layout.
