January 16: Paper Sweeties January 2017 New Release Rewind!


It's time for the Release Rewind!  I've used the sweet new sets along with some of my old faves today:


Again... I turn to that beautiful With Love heart doily Sweet Cut more often than not...lol!  And I just love that the center heart is separate from the lacy border so I can cut them both out of the same paper or two different ones!


And I'm sure it's not surprise to you that all of the coffee sets are some of my favorites!  Here I've used the cup from the Coffee Yes Please Sweet Cuts and... well... it looks like THAT sentiment is one of my favorites on the new Somewhere Over The Rainbow stamp set...


Here I used the sun Sweet Cut alone.. and one of my favorite things... those hearts... such adorable coffee steam!!  Coffee Is Love!

So thanks for stopping by again today!  I hope you've had as much fun as I had and be sure to check out everyone's projects for today too!

Paper Sweeties Plan Your Life Series - January 2017!



Excited to join the Planner Team over at Paper Sweeties!  I've had planners before and last year I didn't fully utilize it or take advantage of the crafty opportunities I had with it and so in 2017 I am Planning to Plan!


This is the first week in my planner.  I love this style of planner because on the days that I don't have as much to do there is lots of room for pretty papers and stamps.  I also love it because I've discovered that my planner also serves as a sort of journal for me.  Not just what I plan on doing, but what I did... so I'll mark down ahead of time what my plans were and then add to it later some journaling about what I did.




I've also decided that this left hand corner of my planner is going to be for illustrations of what made me happy during that time... in this case, my three pups.... and I do love plaid.... although I never wear dresses or hats.... I do think they are pretty... especially in plaid.



And this is the "Business Section"...lol... well.. kinda... I didn't have much to add to Wednesday, but it is around the time that I start counting down the days 'til the weekend...lol!  So added that cute little girl from the Checklist planner set to add a little fun.


Then I used the little tags from the Checklist set to represent some of the things we did at my brother's house and then on the next day I used the coffee stamps to represent what I did that day... NOT much!!....lol!  And I think my favorite planner stamp is gonna be that cute little Done! word...my favorite activity is to finish something... whether it's a project or a bottle of liquid glass.. is that weird?  

So thanks for stopping by and hope you'll join me on the 13th of each month when we share our planner pages with you over at Paper Sweeties!  Put it in your planner!

Now check out the rest of my Planner Teammates' projects and see what they have for you today!
