Hi guys, today is the last day for sneak peeks and I have one final layout to share with you.  This one uses Happy Girl and I love how sweet she is!  I stamped her onto cardstock and colored her with Copics, then cut her out and placed her exactly where I wanted her.  I stamped confetti around her and her happiness is so catchy!  

I used Sign Me Up for her banner and “give hugs” note.  I also used two new alphas, Doodle Me Alpha and Playful Alpha, I’m crazy about these fonts!  Last but not least, Day by Day and  Sticky Situation Three proved to be helpful with my menu planning for next week.  I’m loving how versatile the sticky notes are!  Release day is tomorrow, Nov 3rd, at 7 AM PST…it’s going to be exciting!

Hi everyone, I’m back today with my second sneak peek for Taylored Expressions Clearly Planned.  Today’s weekly layout incorporates two super fun sets, Make a Face and Today’s Mood.  

I think Make a Face is the cutest set, perfect for tracking moods or just noting what kind of day it was.  Paired with Today’s Mood, I was really able to customize my faces and loved “Hangry”.  Have you ever been hangry?  lol!  

I stamped the faces onto sticker paper, colored them and cut them out (so fast to do!).  I think they look adorable with Little Bits Mini Frame 1 and I loved how I was able to stamp the mood on the frame.  I will be making some of these fun faces for my daughter’s planner as well.

I also used a new alpha, Playful Alpha, to stamp out my daughter’s birthday.  I love the font so much!  Having the individual letters means I can space my letters exactly how I want them.  

There are so many awesome new products being released, I can hardly wait to share my last sneak peek tomorrow!  All of the new products will be available Thursday, November 3 at 7am PST.  Has anything caught your eye yet?  🙂

Hi everyone, I’m back with a super fun sneak peek for your planner!  I’m so excited for this month’s Clearly Planned Release!  Sneak peeks start today (yay!) and everything will be available Thursday, November 3rd at 7AM PST.  

Christmas Critters is simply put, a must have, for your planner.  The little critters are adorable and didn’t take much to get me into the holiday spirit.  This set comes with dies that are purchased separately, however, I loved using them so I could put my critters exactly where I wanted them . There are so many words for lists and reminders to stamp in the signs of the penguin and bear.  It’s a fun way customize your signs.

I’m super excited about this release, there are so many goodies you’re not going to want to miss!  I hope you come back tomorrow to see another sneak peek!

Hi guys, I’m back to share with you how I use lists in my planner.  I am a list girl and write lists (it seems) all the time.  Sometimes it’s on a sticky note, other times it’s in my planner, but with four kids I find I’m always having to remember something.  

Here is my weekly layout for this week and as much as I love a decorated planner, I’m a clean and simple girl at heart.  For this week, I used Makin’ a List for my boxes and I love that I can add as many as I need to, wherever I need to.  I am also slightly obsessed with the push pin from Planner Girl and used that for my mundane tasks that I need to get done.  I stamped those separately in color.  

I love keeping pictures of my kids in my planner and so I made a little pocket and added a little picture in there.  I also added a lone embellishment by attaching a leaf I stamped and die cut.  I know I kept my layout simple this week but this actually helps me stay organized.  lol!  

I’d love to know how you use lists in your planner too!  Thanks for stopping by!

Hi everyone, I’m back to share my favorite planner!  Okay, okay, so I have more than one favorite, but that’s the beauty of being a planner addict…(eventually) you’re able to try them all out.  I have two planners shown, one in personal (Gillio), and the bigger one is an A5 Filofax.  I mainly use the personal size, but have used an A5 off and on for years.  What I love about my Gillio are the pockets, layout, and especially the leather.  The leather is so soft and smells amazing!  What I love about the Filofax is the simplicity and overall look of it…and the leather smells pretty good too, lol!

When I first open my planner, I like having pictures of my family to greet me.  The pictures might be old or new, but they are always there.  I love to keep my sections divided by tabs and I change them as needed.  As you can see, I used Work Out for my exercise section and made a little tracker.  In my previous post I shared some of the other tabs/dividers I like to use and I used some of the same ones in my personal planner.  I really love the paperclip stamp and use that for my miscellaneous notes.  

I die cut the word “Today” from Chunky Alpha from toner sheets and foiled it…then made it into a clear divider.  It is a little beat up looking as I’ve used it for a long time, but I love it.  It makes it easy to find the day I need to be on.  I have used a lot of different inserts and definitely have my favorites.  

I love using Sticky Situation sticky notes and I have a sticky note that has some of my daughter’s birthday list on it.  I’m sure I’ll have to add more to it as her birthday isn’t until next month.  Good thing I have plenty of room!

I’m also sharing a weekly layout from my A5 Filofax in Duck Egg (I love this color!) and wanted to show off the little push pins.  They are so adorable and make perfect little bullet ticks for my lists.  You’ll see me using them a lot for lists.  I hope you enjoyed seeing a glimpse into my favorite planner.  What planner(s) do you use?

Happy Wednesday!  Hi, guys, today is the day I am able to share my sneak peek of the new Clearly Planned line at Taylored Expressions!  I cannot tell you how happy I am to finally show what I’ve been working on.  

I really like how easy it is to mix and match these stamps, and especially how I was able to use them with post it notes to create my own, custom, stickies.  This is my monthly August spread and these images are perfectly sized to fit within the spaces.  Some of them I stamped onto sticker paper, colored, and cut out, and some of the images I stamped directly on the dates and then colored.  **TIP** I stamped several images a number of times onto sticker paper and colored, so I would have stickers ready to go.  There are also removable circle stickers in three sizes that you can get for numbers, dates, icons and whatever else you can think of.  I used them for the $ sign on days I balance the books.

If you are a list maker/lover, then you will love the icons, images and ideas that are being released!  I happen to love seeing pictures in my planners and so, you will see me use photos a lot in my monthlies, weeklies and dailies.  I put one next to the dentist appointments I have for two of my kids…it keeps it fun to see a smiling face next to it.

So you’re probably wondering when these new stamps and accessories will be available?  You won’t have to wait long as they’ll be available Thursday, August 18 at 7am PST (that’s tomorrow!).
