Planner Pages

Just in case I don't get around to posting any new posts in April, I thought I would share my planner pages from a week in March. Otherwise certain people, coughLeighcough, will let me know I haven't updated the blog lol!

It felt really good to stamp up a week ahead in my everyday planner. Not only was it creative it also made my day-to-day a little more pretty.  I put this spread together after I completed the Unfinished Projects lists from my previous post. For that project I used a pre-printed card by Simple Stories from Natalie May's class at CAD 2015. The "Unstoppable" [bottom left] and "I am enjoying the Journey" [bottom right] pieces are leftovers from this class as well.  I used washi tape from Illustrated Faith on the top and bottom borders. I scribbled over the words I wanted to highlight with American Crafts permanent markers.  Unfortunately, the stamping in yellow ink for the pennants and "Be Thankful" don't show up well in the photograph.

I liked using the stamped star pennant for my to-do lists each day and it was a new layout for me.

I do have a Heidi Swapp memory planner for this year but I have only managed to get everything down in pencil for now.  The Month in Review section is done for Jan-March though.  I pre-stamped everything for April with the intention of filling it in daily or weekly but that hasn't happened. I haven't even got April pencilled in at all yet. At this rate I will be still working on getting it all down in permanent ink way into 2017!
