Laurie here again with a peek into my Filofax this month using my scraps from the October kits!
Here is this week, along with the front of this month's tabbed divider. I loved that gold dotted cardstock and wanted to enjoy it everyday!
And the gold ampersand paper -- well, I loved it too! So I used it as well. But are you ready for the best part of this divider?
It's also a pocket! I cut two pieces of scrap into dividers, and stitched them together to make this awesome little pocket that I'm using to stash a few Everyday Life journaling cards for when I want to record something on the go.
I'm loving the rich reds and golds in this month's kit -- it is a great combination as Autumn starts to set in. I hope you enjoyed this peek into my planner this month. Maybe you can try sewing a pocket folder too - it's so easy and super handy, too!
Hi Everyone! It's Laurie here today sharing a layout and some thoughts on using ephemera on your scrapbooking layouts. Last month my little girl was creating some toddler art with big stickers on a canvas and I wanted to capture the memory and save a little bit of her art, too.
I pulled one of the giant stickers off of the canvas and used it as a layering piece in this layout. Luckily for me, the colors matched the Webster's Pages paper perfectly! And now, even though I didn't save the entire canvas, I have a little piece of it tucked away in my scrapbooks.
I love the little detailed pieces included in this month's kit, don't you? I just need to stamp the date on this little tab and the layout will be ready to get tucked into this year's album.
I love to include bits of everyday life in my layouts, do you?
Hi everyone! Laurie here with a two-page spread made with the beautiful papers and embellishments in this month’s kit!
I used a neutral, light kraft cardstock from my stash as a base -- the vintage tones of the Shimelle glittered heart paper match so well! I cut butterflies on my Silhouette and several of the pieces from the Shimelle ephimera pack. I just love those Shimelle papers, don’t you?
I have to give credit to Allison Davis -- this spread is based on one of the sketches in her 6x6 paper pad class. It works great with the full size papers in this month’s kit, though!
If you do any two-pagers with your kit, make sure you upload them to the gallery so I can see them! Happy crafting!
Hi Everyone! Laurie here today with a post I’m calling “Filofax Friday”. Old fashioned pen and paper planners are SUPER popular right now, and as much as I’d like to think that I’m trendy, I just never felt comfortable with my life in iCal. But I figured trendy or not, I can totally give my trusty wallet/Filofax a fun Paper Camellia make-over. I’ll create one of these each month with my kit leftovers. Here is what I put together this month.
I made a tabbed divider to help me find my current place in my calendar. I stuck a little pocket on the divider and stuck one of the Shimelle ephemera cards in there, but I can use it to tuck in receipts or other miscellany that I want to save throughout the week.
This is the back of the divider and I LOVE how it turned out. The great thing about working in your filofax is you get to see both sides of paper. I thought for sure the gold triangles were my favorite, but now I think I might love that awesome pink sunburst pattern even more.
A little washi tape and a sticker help important events stand out. I also punched one of the cute cut apart cards from the October Afternoon sheet to stick in -- who doesn’t need a to-do list, right?
Here’s the back of my to-do list. I’ll pick a day and fill it in along with the date, and when the week is over, tuck it in my Everyday Life album.
I hope you enjoyed this peek into my planner -- if you do any planner pages, upload them to the user gallery, I would love to see them!
