Hello, again! This is Amber, founder and creative director of Simple Stories. I'm here for another installment of my monthly Document IT blog feature. Today is Thanksgiving in the US - happy Thanksgiving from Simple Stories!
This month I've decorated my Carpe Diem planner for the holidays -
I used a mix of products from our Claus & Co. collection - I love the way they look against the black Carpe Diem planner, especially with the polka dot interior :) The vertical & secretarial pockets are a great place to store the smaller cards & embellishments I plan to use throughout the month. And those clips - super easy to make, I just adhered the Bits & Pieces die cuts to a paper clip with a glue dot, backed with a piece of washi and called them good!
I mixed in a few pages from the SN@P! Journal Pages, including this pocket insert. Although they're sized for our 6x8 binders and albums, I just trimmed a bit off of the left edge of each of the pages and repunched the holes & voila! - perfect Christmas themed inserts for my A5 planner. The pocket insert is at the front of my planner and is a great spot to store the stickers and other bits I'll use throughout the month.
I've also incorporated the Holiday Planning Inserts in my planner. They're also sized for our 6x8 binders and albums, I just trimmed and repunched again and they fit perfectly :)
The Holiday Planning Inserts include so many fun, different things - from tabbed dividers and calendar spreads to lists, dashboards and stickers, it's everything I need to customize my planner for the holidays, in one convenient little package!
I'm so excited for next month to start! I'm looking forward to using my planner to help me stay organized and on top of things during such a fun & busy time of year.
Now we get to the really fun part! We've designed these FREE printables for the holidays; the month in review insert will fit in your 6x8 Life Documented Planner and this month there's an A5 version as well! In addition you'll find lots more fun printables that can be used for your in cardmaking, gift giving, home decor & more!
