Have you heard and seen the buzz about the new Close to My Heart Planners??? Well I love organization and planners so I was excited about this new product. I was able to spend some time working on my planner this weekend. I really love it!! I love the colors and that it has the week on two pages vs my single page planer I am currently using. I wanted to show you how it looks and how I am using it.
Here is the monthly overview. I used the stickers, washi tape and some of our papers to indicate things on my calendar. I assigned a color washi tape/sticker for each member of my family and also have one to indicate couple and family time. I also have my regularly schedule blog hops indicated with various circles and tabs. This helps me stay up on things. By the way if you look at some of the tabs you many not recognize some of those papers this is because they are from the soon to be released Penelope Paper pack.Here is what the weekly overview looks like. I have the washi/sticker and tabs to indicate the same things on my monthly overview. I used the new roller stamp to add menu to each day so I can plan my meals all on the same calendar instead of a separate one like I have been using. I also used the birthday stamp on the roller to indicate a birthday then wrote who next to it.
I have to admit that the area to write to-dos or notes is not big enough for me as I currently uses a to do list for each day then transfer what is not done to the next. I got creative and decided to create my own to do list and if I want I can change it every month if I want to look at something different.
Here is a closer look. I used the Artfully Sent cartridge and created one of the Framed Sleeve Cards #M101055 and cut it at 7.21″ high by 9.73″ wide. This way I can slide in my to do lists in and change them out as needed. I actually created the inserts using the pocket cards and added the lines in Design Space. So I just send it to my printer and using a black pen in the first holder I don’t have to draw lines, the Cricut does all the work 🙂 If you are wondering about the adorable flowers well this is another sneak peak at Springtime Wishes Stamp set and cut them using Springtime Wishes thin cuts. I used my watercolor paper and paints.
