Hi everyone, it’s Kelly here on the blog today with my setup for May. This month I decided to change my Robin’s Egg A5 planner with the new gorgeous Mint Blossom planner. I used the Simple Set ‘Mama Llama’ and some sticker tablets to decorate my monthly spreads.

First, I made a notes page, to be able to write a few things I need to remember this month. Because I already knew I didn’t needed the whole page, I decorated half of it with some pieces and stickers from the Simple Set.

I used the A5 divider templates and my A5 planner punch to quickly make a divider from the 12x12 paper with the cute lama’s on it. It is very easy and the result is a fun divider that matches my decorations.

I love to decorate my monthly spreads but leave enough space to keep it functional and write down important appointments.

On the ‘this month’ page for May I used the new Number sticker tablet to mark the dates and the Seasons sticker to tablet to decorate.

I hope you enjoyed reading this blog! You can find more spreads in my Carpe Diem planner on Instagram createplannernl https://www.instagram.com/createplannernl/

Have a nice day!

Hi everyone, Kelly here with a new blog all about my Crafty Girl Travelers Notebook (TN). For a while I wanted to dedicate a TN for all my craft projects. I wanted a place to write down ideas for special projects, spreads and layouts. But also a place to write down measurements, techniques and swatches of all my inks and pens. When I saw the ‘Crafty Girl’ collection I immediately thought about this project and started decorating my Aztec TN.

For decoration purposes only, I filled the front pockets with papers and bits and pieces from the collection. I covered one of my notebooks with a scrapbook paper and added a 3x4 card.

For the opening page in the notebook I made a special spread using the word Create and the ‘Hand made’ paper. I punched different sizes butterflies from the different colors of the paper and placed them in the same rainbow order as the paper. Love the end result!

I used some tab stickers from the combo sticker sheet for the different sections of my notebook. In the first section I will write down all the measurements I need while planning. For example, I made templates and noted the measurements of the monthly and vertical weekly boxes for A5 planner inserts. I attached the templates with washitape on the page. This way I can easily grab them when I need them for a spread.

Lastly, I made an opening page for the swatches of all my color pens, brushpens, inks, etc. The collection has some awesome stickers and ephemera to match this theme, such as pencils and inkpads. In the pages behind this opening page I will swatch all my colors as a reference for use in my planner and projects.

For now, the setup of my Crafty TN is done and I can easily add more measurements, techniques, ideas etc!

Have a lovely day!

Hi everyone, it is Kelly here again with a new blog! This month I am using my favorite A5 Ivory Carpe Diem planner with a new Simple Stories collection I received - Bliss. It is a gorgeous floral collection perfect for decorating these months in your planner.

I used the ‘Enjoy the ride’ paper with butterflies as a background for this decorative dashboard for March. I decorated the page with a few pieces of paper and stickers.

When I start decorating my monthly spread I always first add the numbers (written or stickers), then I write down when I have to work and use a list or sticky notes to write down important appointments that month. When I have that list I start decorating the days with appointments with functional stickers, this time from the Bliss stickertablet. Lastly, I decorate the empty spots on the page with decorative stickers and flowers.

The gorgeous paper ‘Be the good’ from this collection is filled with flowers that need to be fussycut out. I cut about half of the flowers from the paper and layered them in the middle of my weekly spread. After I glued them on the page with a glue stick, I repunched the holes and added a few other stickers on my spread.

I love to use floral pattern papers in my planners and I hope you can find some inspiration in these spreads! Have a lovely day,
