PML Live Your Day ~ National Papercrafting Month ~ Birthday list for Planner 2 ~ CatScrapbooking.comYou can see here I used the 3×4″ birthday cards which are included in this pack and there are 12 of them.  I added the month from Dated E1031 to the top of each card with Versamark and heat embossed with black. I then picked a stamp set which would represent that month and added a little bit of fun.  Then using the new Memory Protectors 4″x3″ Z3191 I was able to add them to my planner.

Here is the list of stamp sets used on the months shown:

I also made an Anniversary list.

PML Live Your Day ~ National Papercrafting Month ~ Anniversary list for Planner~ CatScrapbooking.comI am not sure what I will used the other spots for but I am sure I will think of something ;-).  I used black and gold embossing powered with Happy Couple D1539 and Happy to be Friends C1605.

Planners Gonna Plan

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.

2016 CTMH Planner Month overview ~ CatScrapbooking.comHere 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.2016 CTMH Planner Weekly view 2 ~ CatScrapbooking.comHere 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.

2016 CTMH Planner Weekly view 1 ~ catscrapbooking.comI 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.

To do list for 2016 CTMH Planner ~ CatScrapbooking.comHere 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.

To do list for 2016 CTMH Planner detail 2 ~ CatScrapbooking.comHere is a closer look at how they slide in and out.  I am so happy the way this planner is working out that I can’t wait to start using it full time …. Only two more weeks!!!!

Now don’t you want your own??? Well what are you waiting for??? You can order your own 2016 planner now.  During December, you can get your hands on the new, gorgeous Everyday Life™ album from Close To My Heart, the accompanying Everyday Life 2016 planner pages, and the coordinating Everyday Life Perfect Plan roller stamp in an exclusive product bundle for only $29.95. That’s over 15% off the retail price! With the new Everyday Life line, you’ll experience “memory keeping on the go” as you track your water intake, stamp reminders, keep appointments, and tuck away precious memories—plus much more—all at once! This offer is only available while supplies last, so plan to place your order early in the month and start 2016 off right.  Here is the link.

5746b11f-080a-4fef-b07b-3dfbb70306c2I will be sharing some other documents I have been crating to go with my planner like a freezer inventory, grocery list and blog social media chart.

Happy Crating and Organizing!
