DIY 2015 Planner Set

OH boy! Am I excited or what? 

The Cutting Cafe has this AMAZING Planner Set and for today, the DT is assigned this set for Inspiration Time. 

This is my FIRST ever self-made planner and I absolutely LOVE it!! I am definitely going to use this to plan all my scrappy things for next year.

I've made the planner to be about 8.5" x 6.5" in size and filled it with pages that I will only use. 
There are lots more to this planner set and you will definitely love it as much as I do :)

*** Warning: This is a HEAVY PHOTO Post today. Please bear with me :) ***

I've made the front cover with some mistable paper and heavy chipboard -- which I've spritzed with lots of Heidi Swapp color shine. Because the glitter may be transferred onto my hands due to heavy usage - I have adhered an acetate sheet on both the front/back covers.

To bind the planner, I used my Big Crop-a-dile to punch holes throughout the planner and bound them with some ring binders.

I've also added some ribbons and charms to the ring binders to soften the look :)


Now, for the insides!! 
I've added cardstock, glitter tape, patterned paper, stickers, enamel dots, tags, pockets... anything and everything. 

I just had so MUCH FUN!

Now, can 2015 come a little faster please? :)

Crafting by Designs Guest Designer

Today I have been asked by Doris of Crafting by Designs to Guest Design for their challenge "Vintage/Shabby Chic". Click HERE to see the challenge.

I do not do this style often and thought it'd be fun to challenge myself... so here's my card!

I decided to go for the somewhat distressed look with a few pop of colors. I stamped the Unity Stamp sentiment in gold ink while adding some pearls, a few 3d elements and a doily to soften it all up.

Hope you like my card and Thanks for visiting! :)

Hey Birthday Chick!

Happy Wednesday to you! It's Inspiration time at The Cutting Cafe

How many times do you have to give somebody their photos on a CD and it comes in some not-so-appealing CD case?

Good news is, The Cutting Cafe has this awesome CD holder set. Here's what I made!

The cute little chick is from Unity Stamp "Hey Birthday chick" where I added some Stickles to the balloons.

Here it is with a CD inside! :) Perfect sized too.
