Mother Nature Needs a Planner
March 11 2019 – My Carpe Diem Admin
Hello, I’m Cara and like most of the world right now, I’m excited for Spring. Officially there’s only about a week left of Winter, but I’m not sure the weather has gotten the memo! So to let Mother Nature know what time of year it's supposed to be (man, I wish she used a planner!) I’ve filled my TN with lots of beautiful spring flowers from the Spring Farmhouse collection.
My favourite is this March monthly spread, these soft Spring colours put a huge smile on my face and I can tackle any storm outside. I used number flags from the Numbers Sticker Tablet and the ‘March’ is from the Seasons Sticker Tablet.
Don’t be afraid to layer stickers. I’ve used stickers from the Spring Farmhouse 4x6 pack that has flowers and leaves that you can layer up for a custom look. I’ve added them to March 20th to mark the first day of Spring. I also added some label stickers on top of boxes. That long label is perfect to write in an event that spans two days.
This week’s spread is also full of Spring colours and icons, isn’t that bike the cutest? And that bow!! Darling!
The pockets seem to scream Spring with all the birds and flowers. There’s a mix of chipboard, die cuts, cards from the cut apart sheets, washi and stickers. I tucked some patterned paper with some stickers into the long pocket in the back and my planner is ready for some sun.
There are lots of great motivational phrases in this collection and since we see the covers of our inserts everyday, I thought these would be a great spot to give myself some motivation.
The ‘no rain, no flowers’ die cut was too small, so I hand wrote that one.
I covered the weekly and monthly TN inserts with patterned paper and the black gingham one comes with the Blush Speckled TN. I layered patterned papers, stickers and enamel dots on the covers and I even ran a line of washi down the spine of the pink one.
