Hello, it’s Emma here to wish you a Happy Easter and share my Easter set up! I’ve used the Bunnies & Baskets Collection by Simple Stories of course! It’s so ‘me’ pastels and florals!! My favourite!! This is one of Simple Stories ‘Simple’ sets, there’s three designs which you get two 12x12 sheets of each, and a set of 6x12 cardstock stickers. I’m wanting to show you how with one of the ‘simple’ sets you can still set up a whole planner! I’ve chosen to use my A5 Robins Egg Carpe Diem planner, the colours work so well together...look!

I have made die cut pieces to fit in the pockets by sticking the stickers on to off cuts of the paper and cutting them out, I also used foam sticky pads to lift them and give the look of chipboard pieces! 

I also used a doily which I cut up to fit in a couple of the pockets and then used some more off cut paper and voila!! Pockets filled and looking super pretty!

One of the paper designs has 4x6 cut apart elements, so I cut these up to use for decoration on my dividers and dashboard. 

Using the Carpe Diem planners A5 templates and the A5 punch makes it so easy to make dividers, and for the dashboard, I simply traced around, missing out the tab! 

You can see how using the cut apart elements, and a sticker raised up on a sticky pad, how simple it is to create a decorated dashboard, and you can use this throughout your decorating of dividers too. I used some Pom Pom trim also running along the edge of a separate dashboard which I placed behind my decorated one, pom poms are a fun way to add more interest to your set up!!

Here’s the dividers, I used a heart punch to make the tabs, I’ve shown how easy this is in a previous blog. How lovely are all these papers together, such beautiful pastels!! So, there we have it, my nice and simple Easter set up! Have a great Easter, hope the Easter bunny visits!! If you would like to see more pictures Simple Stories products then checkout my IG account.
