For those of you in the know, that means we’re creating something other than a card. It could be a tag, a scrapbook page, a bookmark or playing with your journal or daytimer.
I decided to get creative with my daily planner this month, and add some graphics to add colour and help remind me of things that need to be done…like garbage night. Which is tonight….and if I had been really smart, I would have used the little garbage icon in the Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps Planner Doodles set and colour coded it on my page! Bubbly Blue Krafty Kolours Hybrid Ink for the recycling week and Totally Taupe for the Clear or garbage week. Duh! But I didn’t think of that until I had used the Totally Taupe for both weeks in the cycle. Oh well, next month! Never a mistake, just another creative opportunity!
I also used a number of the other Planner Doodles icons on my Planner Monthly Calendar page. I make my own Planner Pages now after years of buying them. I just found I couldn’t get exactly the right system to work for me. So, I made my own.
I added the wonderful little cutie pie from the new Together is Better stamp set that Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps re-released in clear last month. It’s a Krafty Komeback stamp. Lexi is just cute as a button. Her buddy Lucas is also part of the set and they are perfect for Valentine’s Day.
Of course, I had to have my newest little sweetie on my page, and that would be the stamp from A Purr-fect Day that reminds me of my 11-month old kitten, Abi. Oh! It’s her birthday today….well, monthly. That means she will be one year next month. Monkey kitty! And I just saw that this stamp is on sale! Bonus!!
I always like to use motivational sayings on my planner pages and the last Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamp set I used on my page is one of my favourites for that, Happy Thoughts. It’s a much loved and well used stamp.
The Krafty Kolour Hybrid Inks I used on my Planner Page were Wicked Black, Pink Pizazz, Ruby Red, Precious Pink, Berry Bold, Bubbly Blue and Totally Taupe.
I used my Copic Markers to colour in Lexi and little Abi and I used R00, R11, R20, R29, R46, E01, E02, E42, E50, E53, B41, V20, Y32 and YR31.
