Personalizing Your Planner Cover

So the new challenge over at A Blog Named Hero is to personalize something. After making my project, and loving it, I realized that I didn't really personalize anything. Ha! I did make a custom cover for my planner, but it didn't have my name or anything. Oh well. :)

I have a cute planner that I am supposed to be using this year. I'm pretty ingrained with using an electronic calendar, and do so regularly, but I thought that a paper planner might help me with some tasks that are ongoing, and goal setting. So far, haven't used it once. Let's not dwell on that.

While the planner had a cute enough cover, since I've been loving using watercolor lately, I wanted to make a new cover. This is just a simple wash of stripes with plain water then dropping in colors from the Peerless palette and letting them spread on their own.

Then a hopeful stamp right on top with Versafine ink. Here's to hoping that all of our days are happy this year.

Please join in on this challenge, as there is a $25 gift certificate from Simon Says Stamp for the winner. And who doesn't have something they can "personalize"?

It's Lawn Fawn Time, It's Lawn Fawn Time!

This month we are collaborating with Lawn Fawn, and that just makes me so very happy. For a few reasons. First, their images are just so darling. From their critters, to their sentiments, I just love everything about them. Second, I've had the pleasure of meeting Kelly Marie Alvarez in real life, and she is just fantastic. Really. A lovely, genuine person. And I'd like to think that I can call her my friend. Third, when you watch Kelly Marie's videos on her Lawn Fawn YouTube channel, you can't help but smile along with her. You can hear her smile. I promise. Go see for yourself.  

This is the card I made for today's challenge, which is about Stretching Your Stamps. Can you tell what I did "differently"? 

My lamp is actually a pot for a plant, turned upside down, and paper pieced, and adorable. I used some fun patterned papers from the Hello Sunshine paper pad. 

I made the light by masking off the sides of the panel and just using some Copic markers to get the color I wanted. So easy. 

Finished the card by doing some die cutting with the Say Cheese die, also from Lawn Fawn, and one of their notecards. I absolutely love their notecards. I have about half of the ones they make. I need the other half. They're the perfect size, perfect colors, perfect patterns. Trust me on this. 

I hope you'll join us on this challenge. I had originally intended to make a different card, with a different stamp set, and then this idea popped into my head as I was sorting through my stamps looking for the other set. I'm certain if you start browsing your stash, you'll also be hit with a neat way to Stretch Your Stash.

Winnie & Walter and Alphabets, Oh My!

This month over at A Blog Named Hero we are collaborating with the fantastic Winnie & Walter. Go check them out, they have some amazing stamp sets, and if you're looking for anything with a large word, they are the place to go.

I made this card, using two of their sets, which are linked below. Absolutely love this V for cheVron set, and I have so many plans for it. The sentiment comes from The Big, The Bold and Extras, and I know I will be using that set a lot. 

Now, the challenge for this card was Alphabets. Can you see where I used one? Between and around the chevrons! I used the letter "I" from this amazing Lawn Fawn set called Violet's ABCs. I just got it, and I HAD to ink it up straight away. The neat thing about the Lawn Fawn alphabet sets is that they come with multiples of most letters, so it's easier to spell out words with one pressing of your ink block. I took the three Is and put them on my clock end to end. Used them as an accent piece. I absolutely love it, and sort of patted myself on the back when I was finished. 

Please join us in this challenge, up for grabs is a $25 gift certificate from our awesome sponsor:

Thanks for stopping by today, I do appreciate your visit.
