Papertrey January Blog Hop Challenge


I used unusual colors for a valentine type card, which was not planned but as I added each element it came together that way.  I started with a desire to create my own background pattern paper.  The temptation to add buttons or a ribbon was overwhelming, however in the end I left it as is.

SUPPLIES

Stamp Sets:
Love Lives Here (flower in background pattern and on circles in the middle of the two flowers on the heart as well as the heart stamp on the background pattern paper), Cable Gram (text on heart)

Ink:
Versa Mark, Avocado, Scarlet Jewell

Paper:
Avocado, White and Scarlet Jewell Card Stock as well as avocado pattern pack (dotted paper)

Accessories:
Winter White Embossing Powder, Embossing Gun, Journal Die #8, Heart Print Dies, Song Birds Die (flower), Double Ended Banner Dies, Dimensionals, Cuttle Bug Machine

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.
