I just had to share about some recent ‘Planner’ events, ideas and more. How many of you have a creative planner in your hand?
I’ve had my Kikki K now for over two years and I will retire her this year. She’s a beautiful blue but I chose a fun Heidi Swapp planner for 2017. I love her style and it gives me a base of color to work with and build from. I also love the style of the planner . . . a place for appointments but also room for a ‘to do‘ list adjacent to to your appointments. I also love the gold polka dots but adding beautiful color in there. I’m a pastel vintage girl.
Speaking of planners . . . I was thrilled to be a part in a small way (helping with sponsors and teaching a mini class) at the Fall Planner event hosted by Michelle Rossibell and Susan McDonnell. Just such lovely people. Below is my planner, a peek in my current planner, a couple of great swap clips made by others for the Fall season, new releases ~ Planner Stamps from Prima, my planner stack and the make and take I taught (the Queen of Harvest Vintage tag). I met another friend (shout out to Nikki) who is a kindred vintage loving planner girl!
It was a sold out event of 100+ planner girls with a wonderful shopping experience, classes, make and takes, prizes, swaps, gift exchanges, friendship, fun and more. Held at the Los Serranos Country Club it was such an amazing event. See a few photos from the event below. What a great event and time together! Thank you ladies!
So much to share so I’ll save some for later but I thought I’d leave you with a couple of crafty ideas. The first . . . Jenni Bowlin’s Fiskars pinwheel punch . . . make little pinwheel clips for your planner like below. Secondly, a friend gave me the cutest paper. I loved the little perforated strips that you usually discard so instead of trashing them, I used them to make washi tape stickers. Using your stash (which we are blessed to have) is a plus in so many ways.
Lastly, I have a three (possibly four) Queen of Harvest tag kits I’d like to giveaway. If you’d like your own (includes directions), the kit has everything to make the tag – just leave a comment here.
Stay tuned for some additional fun ideas as well.
Warmest creative wishes,
Oh, the Queen of Harvest tag is so cute, I would love to win a kit. Looks like everyone had a great time. Thank you so much for sharing!
We had such a lovely time and she plans on doing it again. 🙂 Hope you’re doing well friend.
Love seeing all the planners and ideas.
i don’t have one yet but think I might need one for next year. Such a fun tag!
I’ve used one for years so this creative planner concept is such a great fit. Then I think you should join us for the next event. XOXO Jean
Looks like everyone had great fun!
It was such a lovely time. She plans on doing it again. 🙂
Cheryl, your planner pages are gorgeous! Love the memories you recorded. THANK YOU for the inspiration.
Aren’t you sweet Helen!
I know you ladies had a great time. I like the idea of using the strips of paper for Washi. Nothing wasted!
Yes, and those strips are sooooo cute. Missed you!
