Planning Planners????????????

Good Morning I am here for Scrapping Clearly today with a planning a planner post. I am lost without my Kikki K planner it has my life - iterally in it. I know our phones have loads of app to keep track of our lives but I have to say that I am a little bit more old school when it comes to keeping track, there's just something about writing it down that helps me recall the information.

As I am new to the making planners pretty stuff (nothing about my Kikki K one is pretty eg with photos and washi etc), I will be sharing each month the things I have learnt, how my style will change throughout the year. So we will be learning together. 

So I will be keeping my Kikki K planner and also working with a beautiful Heidi Swapp planner...... the idea is that I will keep life stuff like bills due, blog post info in my Kikki K and using my Heidi Swapp one as a review/reflection of the family stuff that we did over that month, so by the end of the year I will have a mini album that will also assist in helping me remember the events of the year, as a reference to my normal layouts. 

So my start point was to gather some supplies that I think I will want to use throughout the planner, I know that I want to keep my planner quite flat on the inside, to keep the planner from over flowing. I also know I want to be able to add envelopes and pockets to store memorabilia throughout the year so its sorted and stored without a lot of work going into that process. 

Washi tape is a must, I find that with three kids all over the place and with school holidays its an easy to colour code these things without writing it all over the planner, it really saved me this year so I will be carrying it over to 2016.

The next thing will be about the pen!!!! I dont want it to bleed through, feather out, I want it to be nice and thin also. So for those who have done this before..... what are you using? What should I stay away from?

How cute are these Heidi Swapp Clear Cards ? - In store now!!!!

Also to see how the first month goes for myself.

Till next time, have a creative day.

Merry Christmas

Good afternoon, I am here with the last post before Christmas for Scrapping Clearly, I hope that you all are organised and enjoying the day. I am working with the last of the Teresa Collins Tinsel and Company and its a layout of my youngest son. I wanted to have a combination of the last two layouts to tie it all together. 

I hope you have a wonderful Christmas however you chose to spend it with your family and loved ones. Time to sign off, as we need to prep for the Red mans arrival and I have a very excited 5 year old.

Till next time, have a Safe and Wonderful Christmas.

Good as Gold

Good morning I am here today for Scrapping Clearly  with another simple but yet striking Christmas layout. Hope you are all finding something a little creative to do each day at this time of year.

I must say I have been struggling with trying to create layouts and my scrap studio looks like a bomb has gone off with all the creating of teachers gifts and Christmas Card making. Only two more days left of school and I cant wait till Friday....... PJ DAY!!!!!!

Its that time of year again!!!!!

Good Morning how are you all? I am here with my first Christmas post of the month for Scrapping Clearly (shhh it was meant to be last week, dont tell the boss ;) life was getting away with my schedule).

But things are now under control well as under control as they are going to get with the festive season as well as the 3 kids finishing school in a 1 1/2 weeks.... I am only counting so I can knock off with the school runs and all that entails = pj days are NEEDED!!!!!

So with the count down on to Christmas the design team was very fortunate to receive Christmas related kits and whats better than that either to document your current festive season or if your anything like me ...... catching up on past photos. My kit this month is using the stunning Teresa Collins Tinsel and Company range.

So my aim this month is to do simple and elegant black and white photos to give each layouts some commonality and it give it a classic feel. Not to mention focus on some stories of the day with hidden journal tags.

So what are your Christmas Scrapping Plans? Do you have photos to catch up on? Share with us your plans either here or in our Scrapping Clearly Facebook Community page...... We would all love to see and get some more inspiration.....

Till next time have a creative day.
