As another year comes to an end, we have the opportunity to reflect one our past and to look forward to our future.
One of the things that I enjoy each December is to set new goals for the coming year, using planners to plan my days, weeks and months. So I decided that this year I would DIY my 2019 Planner.
I wanted to make a planner that was both pretty and functional. So with the help of Graphic 45 A Ladies’ Diary, I set out to do just that.
I decided to use the planning components that work best for me. In my line of work, I take notes down for everything; and although it my be considered “old school”, I enjoy flipping through my planner pages to see how far I’ve come and how much further I need to go.
To paraphrase what someone once said, It’s not about the destination, it’s about what you do to get there. And jotting down everything that I do in my planner helps me see just that.
I’ve put together a quick project share video where you’ll be able to view my 2019 Planner in it’s entirety. If you want to take the plunge and make one of your very own, I have a supply list grid underneath the video. Thank you so much for visiting. Please sub to my YouTube channel, as I do upload video tutorials and project shares on a regular basis. Happy Paper Crafting!
Planner Weekly Layout and Monthly Spread for March 2018: Hi! Just sharing a few spreads I made for the month of March, using items from my stash. This monthly and weekly spreads are about flowers, happy colors and focusing on the positive. In the following video project share, I go over items I’ve used and altered for this spiral planner.
I hope you enjoy this video and I hope that it inspires you to decorate your own planners. They truly do help break your day down. Enjoy!
Pink Glam Traveler’s Notebook Setup and Flip Through
For this Pink Glam Traveler’s Notebook Setup I used items from my stash and embellishments made with paper-cutting-dies from Spellbinders.
Last year I found that I used my Webster’s Pages Traveler’s Notebook more often than I did my planner. What I enjoyed about my Traveler’s Notebook last year was the ability to add as many or as little components (inserts) as I saw the need for.
With that in mind, I decided to setup several different traveler’s notebooks for 2018, each with a different purpose. And since I’m looking to have several traveler’s notebooks, I have to think about price and how much I’m willing to spend for each one. This is where my dies from Spellbinders come in.
Traveler’s Notebook Shaker Dashboard
My local crafting supplies store was running a huge sale on planners, planner accessories,
and this included traveler’s notebooks and their accessories as well. So I purchased three traveler’s notebooks along with the notebook inserts, some planning stickers and shaker dashboards.
Of course shopping for these items was half the fun; but the best part was thinking up ways to embellish my new traveler’s notebooks with items I already own! And I tell you, when you can whip out those beautiful dies from Spellbinders again and again, they really are a true money saver!
The versatility of the Traveler’s Notebook is well noted. They can be used as planners, bullet journals, and even scrapbooks that detail family vacations, road trips, etc.
I hope that you are inspired and encouraged to put together your very own Traveler’s Notebook and use it as it best suits your needs.
The following video will give you a detailed flip through of this gorgeous Traveler’s Notebook. Sub to my Youtube and bookmark this website for more paper crafting project shares, tutorials and ideas. Enjoy!
Looking for Free Halloween Printables ? Well you’re in luck! This year I’ve decided to start my own collection of Halloween downloadable printables that you can use as stickers, labels, invitations and cards!
I have designed round labels that fit perfectly on your 3×3 note cards and projects! I’ve also dabbled in a couple of Dia de los Muertos designs.

Free Halloween Card Printables
Here are a couple of 4×6 Halloween card printables you can use as well. Just print these in cardstock, cut and adhere to your blank cards!
Okay, I’ve already done the measuring for you. Like I mentioned before the labels (circles) will fit nicely into any 3×3 card or box, or whatever Halloween project you’re working on. And the card fronts already measure 4×6.
