Make a New Plan Stan: Handmade Planner Accessories

Planners have busted on to the craft scene with fun little products to make your planner pretty. But I'm not buying it. I'm making it. It's the "Anti-Plan." And it starts with a to-do list in a pocket.
Years ago, I faithfully kept a planner. Orthodontist appointments never conflicted with Soccer games or Cheer practice because I kept my family on track. Now, however, my life is different. It's more relaxed and I love that. I'm not planning my life, I'm living it. But the the cute papers and pens are trying to suck me in, so I'm fighting back by making cute things of my own.

Let's make a plan. Link your project to the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog and your project could win a $50 gift voucher to Simon Says Stamp. We draw a new winner each week. Your project could also be chosen to be featured in our weekly designer spotlight.

FYI...my husband is trying to talk me into letting him have the list stamp for work. How cute is that?

Corrugated Mini Book: A Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge

This week, the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge is to use a specialty paper. I chose corrugated. With corrugated, you get fabulous color, durability, and of course...the awesome texture.
Like most crafters, I have hundreds of pretty little papers that I can't bear to part with. This week, I used these little snippets to create a miniature junk journal. This was so easy that I can't wait to share! I punched a hole through the individual papers (very little cutting involved...I liked them different lengths) and punched holes in the corrugated covers and tied it together with string. That's it! Now I have a pretty, yet sturdy, mini journal in my handbag!

I love the little stamp that decorates my journal cover. The stamp is by Prima. It stamps a perfectly detailed image each time and is about half of the cost of most company's. That's impressive!

What will you create with specialty paper? Link your project to the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog. Your project could win a $50 gift voucher to Simon Says Stamp. We draw a new winner each week. Your project could also be chosen to be featured in our weekly designer spotlight.

Right at Home: Stamp Launch and Blog Hop

Hello! Through Instagram, I met a wonderful woman named Nicole who has a shop called Right at Home. I was thrilled that she asked me to be a guest designer for their very first exclusive Happy Mail stamp set. How exciting!
I used the stamps to make a Happy Mail Stationery Set. I love making cute sets with matching envelopes. It's just as much fun to decorate the inside and back of the envelope too.


There's a lot that you can do with cute florals.


To celebrate the stamp launch, Right at Home has arranged a blog hop with some amazingly talented designers. Hop around and see what they've created!

Right at Home will be giving away three sets of the new stamps through Instagram. To win, visit them on Instagram https://instagram.com/rightathome/ . The giveaway contest will be June 22nd-24th.
