Planning Out The Future

Hello friends

Twice a month I submit a project to Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L,
I've been on their design team for many years and 
they are such a lovely bunch.  This month for my first project
I decided to feature something very different 
using their various products with my planner.

A planner?  For years I always though ta planner was one of those huge
posters that went on the wall at work but it turns out they are far more exciting.
Me and My Big Ideas (MAMBI), a US company have taken the market
by storm with their planners, available in various sizes.
Basically they are a diary that you decorate.

I discovered that self laminating pouches work brilliantly and of course the 
E-Z Runners are perfect for affixing instantly.

And the other huge thing with planners is washi tape to decorate the pages.

I've joined a couple of Facebook groups for planners and I am 
a complete newbie, the professional planners have 
a room of stickers, pens and washi tape - it's a whole new world
and I'm already addicted!

For my full post please visit the blog here.

Over the last couple of days I've featured posts using
pretty paper - Friday Die Day's More Than Milk Carton
and yesterday - Butterfly Aperture card - I received a few messages
asking me what the papers are called so I did a check and 
both papers come from an 8 x 8 paper pad called Botanica
from Craftwork Cards - hope that helps :)

Back in the cabin today - no rest until those demos are done!
Take care friends and hope you are having a great weekend.

  2. Good Morning Christine,
    It's very frosty here in Norfolk, so staying in the warm for now, until it clears, but the sun is shining. Your planner looks lovely so far, so I'm off to have a look at your full post on the SA blog.

  6. Brilliant planner Christine and a great use for washi tape as never seem to use it xx hazel

  7. Good morning Christine thought I recognised the papers but couldn't think whete I'd seen them!! The idea of a planner is great but dare I say life is too short to be decorating the pages!! I think I'll just stick to a calendar. Best wishes Jackie x

  8. Hi Christine, These planners look fabulous, like you I thought of the Office Planners.
    I've seen the Sapphire Plus on C&C, can't wait to see these shows.
    Enjoy your day, when I was going to Church it was trying to snow, thankfully when I came out it had changed to drizzle, phew !!!!!!
    Lots of love from Patricia xx
