Last week this planner spread was up on Pebbles blog and I wanted to share it here as well. I used Pebbles' beautiful “Simple Life” collection by Jen Hadfield. I’m a huge planner fan and own several different planners, although I’m not actually using all of them (I just really want to have them!). This planner I do use and I love embellishing it! Here’s what I did for this week:
Jen Hadfield’s Simple Life collection is really perfect to dress up your planner with all the “everyday” expressions and the beautiful patterns and colors. Before I got started I selected the patterned papers, washi tape strips, die-cuts and stickers I thought I might use:
I started by cutting off a few of the fun strips of paper from the bottom of the patterned papers to use, like the strips with the bicycles, the flowers and the brown one with the text. Of course I used the strips of washi tape as well, like the tape with the blue/white stripes below:
With my small banner punch I punched a few yellow banner pieces from the “Sweet Citrus” paper and adhered them both on the left and right pages. Next I adhered a word sticker on top. With a butterfly punch I punched a few butterflies, which went very well with all the flowers in this collection and with the wood veneer butterflies of course (the one I used on my bookmark).
From the “Simple Greetings” paper I cut a few of the beautiful squares and used those on my pages as well along with many of the awesome die-cuts. Using one of Jen Hadfield’s gold dipped tags with some twine, a die-cut and one of the beautiful butterfly wood veneers I also created a bookmark:
And when I saw the “Foiled Cardstock” specialty paper in this collection I knew I wanted to use that too, so I decided to use it as a kind of divider between the two planner pages:
Love the look of this week in my planner!
