Hello again, it’s Emma back with you today, and I’d like to share a little bit of fairytale magic! I’ve been setting up the beautifully bright new Pink A5 Carpe Diem planner and what a gorgeous planner it is!!
I’ve used the Simple Stories Little Princess collection, the A5 Good Vibes Monthly Inserts and the A5 Horizontal Weekly Inserts to get this planner all set up ready for use.
You might be surprised that a mid forty year old would choose the new Little Princess Collection for setting up her planner....well, probably not that surprised actually if you follow me on Instagram!! ;)
The colours in this collection are so bright and cheerful and well what can I say about the florals, other than as always with Simple Stories, the florals are fabulous!!!
I’ve chosen the pink polka dot from the 6x8 pad and the then the teal from the Simple Basics 12x12 pack as my main focal colours. I’ve used off cuts in the pockets which I have slid behind two of the frames from the Tags & Frames pack and punched out a couple of teal butterflies which I’ve embellished with the Enamel Dots, YAY for the Enamel Dots to be back again!!!
For the dash I’ve used the teal floral paper which I cut to size using the A5 template and the Carpediem A5 hole punch, boy does it make it super easy to create dashboards & dividers!!
The 6x8 pad makes it so simple to make dividers, or in this case to cover dividers...I wanted to cover the March divider from the Good Vibes set as I wanted my ‘little princess’ theme to continue, I cut down a couple of the 6x8’s which you’ll see here and a bit further down my blog, to cover the front & back, a little bit of glue and the fabulous floral washi as a border and hey! It’s as simple as that!!
The monthly overview page is something I rarely use, but I do always need extra space for scribbling little reminders down, so I have covered up the various titles really easily with a few punched out circles and it has then left me with a prettily decorated page, perfect for jotting down those few reminders!
I love to incorporate little sections using the various sized snap pockets, here I’ve used the 4x4 cut apart sheet and a section of a snap pocket that I’ve cut down, it just adds a bit of fun to my planner, sometimes I even add some sequins too, which make a shaker pocket, they’re really easy to do and just seal with some washi!
As always with my monthly spread I’ve used the ‘I can’t live without’ Numbers Sticker Tablet! I’ve done a border of the floral washi and a few floral stickers and that’s pretty much it, so quick and simple but I think it’s a great way to add some colour!
Here’s the other side of the March divider which I covered with one of the 6x8 pages and a border of washi.
Did you see how this collection has a whole pack of floral ephemera?!...I think it was especially for me!! ...and also a whole sheet of florals in the sticker pack!! Look how I’ve decorated my weekly pages using only the floral stickers and some strips of washi!! I’m really pleased with how it turned out!!
Well, that’s all from me for today,
