Butterfly Love

I was in love with the tag and butterflies used by Melissa and wanted to use those elements of her design for my card.  I wish the photo showed the resulting softness of adding the vellum makes the final creation.  I must say I am in love with Papertrey's new Linen Card stock (Fresh Snow).  It feels luxurious and the quality is incredible.  I have always liked and used vellum numerous times in my creations, but the new Papertrey Sheer Basics Vellum Pattern Pack is to die for.

SUPPLIES

Planner Setup Using Monthly Moments and PTI Stamps

Although I tried using electronic gadgets to keep my appointments I had three different places with appointments, etc. and was so afraid I would forget something.  One time I showed up for an appointment I did not have but it was on my phone.  I have decided for my use a paper planner works the best.  I can keep all my appointments in one place, a to do list, etc.

I was getting my new planner ready for 2015.  Staring in my face was my monthly moments stamp sets and journal cards.  Most people use them for photo albums.  I thought - wow they would be wonderful for my planner.  So along with my washi tape supply, card stock, monthly moments stamp sets and journal cards I decorated my first week of February.

Since it was February, I used the February journal cards and monthly moments stamps.  I love how it turned out, although I am sure I will hone and improve my organization as I go along through the coming months.

Notice I also cut one of the journal cards and used it as a 'TO DO LIST', die cut the word February to put along the edge vertically.  The pens I like to use Bic Mark It ultra fine point permanent markers.  However, I found they leak through the paper onto the back side.  Using 3 x 2 1/2 sized paper from the monthly moments Journal Card Collection, I am able to write with my favorite pens with no problem.
