Planner Love with SRM Stickers

Monday, September 7, 2015

Monthly planners are the "in thing" right now. They are so popular that I have been seeing some really cool ways to use them.

As a teacher, my days are filled with so many important things that I need to remember. I decided to make a teacher planner using SRM Stickers to help me stay organized this school year.

Let's take a look at one of my upcoming weeks!

I decided to go with a basic planner from Sugar Paper. They are an L.A. based company that specializes in notebooks and planners. I love the gold polka dots and pink font on this one.

And check out the fun school themed stickers. Teachers and parents will love using the Calendar Companion sticker set. They are just the right size to fit into your planner.

I also used the Sticker Stitches and the Stickers by the Dozen - Birthday Birdie on the page shown above. Both are great additions to your planner.

Every teacher needs a shiny red apple in their planner right? 
I love the Quick Cards/Teacher sticker set

And I have just discovered this cute "glue" Paper Pops from Paper Issues. It's just so cute and had to be added to my planner. 

Hop on over to the SRM Stickers store. They have the cutest planner and calendar stickers. The new 2016 stickers are also available to those wanting to get a head start on the new year!

Project Life - That Coffee Life

Friday, September 4, 2015

I'm a coffee fanatic and just had to make a fun Project Life pocket page to add to my summer album.

I added some really fun elements to this one too!

Here's what I came up with...

I used more paper goodies from Webster's Pages for this one. I ordered them all from Paper Issues.

And check out the font and bokeh effect inside of my coffee cup. I added it using the Rhonna Designs app on my phone.

I love to add fun stuff to my photos before ordering my prints from Persnickety Prints.

I love the "Lucky Me" vellum piece from Webster's Pages. I always feel lucky when I'm enjoying my coffee!

I found the fun camera charm in the clearance section at Hobby Lobby. It was only $0.29 cents too! 

I love to add fun pieces like this to my Project Life spreads.

And of course I needed a Starbucks sleeve for this page!

And here's more details about the vellum that I used on this page spread and this one here!
I'm having so much fun filling up my Summer album. I'll be sharing more pages soon!

Teacher Crafts that POP

Thursday, September 3, 2015

If you follow me on Instagram then you know that I have a new favorite craft item!

I just love the new Paper Pops that are now available at Paper Issues. The pencil and glue set spoke to my teacher spirit and I just had to order some.

Here's how I used it...

I made some gift bags for the fellow teachers on my team. I combined several of my fave products to make these.

First, I used the Craftwell Alpha embossing folder to make an alphabet designed background. I then added a fun image from The Greeting Farm

The fun kraft bag is from SRM Stickers. I also added an "I Teach" sentiment using their Say it with Stickers/Teacher set

And that Paper Pops pencil really does "pop" and adds a fun element to my bag.

Note to self: order more Paper Pops! They are sooo adorable!

I'm linking this up to the Paper Issues "You Rule the School" linky party!

And be sure to do something sweet for your child's teacher this year! It's one of the hardest and most rewarding jobs out there. Educators love to receive a little something to make them SMILE!

Project Life - Cool For the Summer

Tuesday, September 1, 2015

I'm still holding onto summer! I just didn't want it to end. At least I get to hold onto the memories by filling up my album with summertime photos!

Check out my new Project Life pocket page! 

I used loads of paper and vellum from Webster's Pages for this one. I ordered all of these goodies from Paper Issues.

And check out the fun effects and font on my photos. I added text by using the Rhonna Designs app on my phone. Then I ordered all of my photos from Persnickety Prints.

The paper and vellum pieces coordinate so well with my photos. 

My next task is to find the perfect summer themed album for all of my completed pages. 

Be sure to stay tuned to the blog. My next Project Life spread will be dedicated to coffee. It's a fun one!
