JustNick Week: Mix & Match Cut Files

Hello and welcome to another fun week of collaboration!  This week, we are working with all of our NEW collections and fabulous cut files from JustNick Studio! There were so many options and ideas that I wanted to get done, but I had to narrow it down… so here are a few fun designs that I came up with!  I LOVED working with these fun cut files to add to my projects!

IMG_7142

Up first, I wanted a really bold, cool background for this “boys” page!  The Graphic Background was a perfect fit with our Good Fellows Collection! I used the Kraft Paper from this collection to cut my background with!  It was a pretty bold background so I used one of the more simple graph papers and our gray corrugate paper as the background…lots of texture, but not too much!  I’m pretty much loving the look, if I do say so myself!

I also used another cut file, called Circle Sentiments, as a main part of my layout!  This set of files was great because I could use it for layouts, for cards and for projects! It’s always great to have multiple uses for the same thing, right?!  I backed it with our silver foil paper…perfect!

I used lots of fun pieces from our Good Fellows Collection -tags, wood veneer, puffy stickers, flair and ephemera!  Every single piece is so “manly” ;)!  And just look at the teeny details of the cut file!

I also used another cut file called Card Sentiments 2 to create the gift tag and the cute card!  They are perfect for anything…love that I can adjust the size based on my needs!

For the gift tag, I used the Good Fellows Collection again~a new fave for the boys in my life! I also love to use photos to really personalize gifts so I did that here..and those glasses..the perfect match for Dad ;)!  Love how it came together in just a matter of minutes!

IMG_7148

Last, I created, from the same set, a more feminine card from our Millie & June Collection!  Isn’t the For You so perfectly adorable?!  And, I’m pretty much not going to be able to say enough about the new Paper Bows from Millie & June!  Gold glitter bows, striped bows, polka dots bows, floral bows….the list goes on and on…30 bows in each pack and you can mix and match them!  And that BLUE with the pinks, golds and black is oh, so super fabulous!  Right?

Planning with Webster’s Pages: Day 6

05/21/16

Hello! It’s been a few cold, rainy days here in Utah and I finally see the sun… so I snapped my photos before it disappeared again!  I hope that you all have enjoyed our journey of planning with our fun planner and paper products and, of course, the Webster’s Pages Color Crush Planners!  Here’s a look at what I have been planning {and doing} for the month of May~and I love how this will turn right into memories!

DeskFrontShotWeb

I’m using the A5 planner size in the Rose Gold color…totally crushing on this larger version, PLUS, the color is gorgeous and it matches our Millie & June collection perfectly!

Here’s a closer look at the cute decor for my planner… it’s always busy, but it’s a good busy and even better when you get to make it look so fun.  I LOVE our new puffy dot/heart stickers..they are PERFECT for planners… add a dot/heart next to each event so you don’t miss a thing!  You could even color code if you wanted…that was a little much for me, but really, it seems like a great idea…all blue is for practice, all pink is for games, all gold is for events, etc.

I also used our first day of school photos on the page to show how they looked when the year started…kind of a fun little way to document the school year and see how they’ve changed!

*Custom Paper Clip Idea* One of my favorite things for planners is chunky paper clips…and you can make your own!  I used one of our new Paper Bow sets to create the gorgeous bow sticking out of the planner and these cute other bows that I’ll use in the rest of my planner…And I just loved this vellum quote page found in my planner so I’ll be decorating it up a bit more, too!

BowsWeb

I just can’t say enough how I ADORE the Webster’s Pages planners and also how much I ADORE our new Millie & June Collection and our Attwell Collection pieces…they couldn’t be a better fit for planning, card making, scrapbooking or crafting!  Now, wouldn’t you like to WIN a set of Millie & June AND a Color Crush Planner?  Leave your comments below!  We will be announcing our WINNER  for this contest AND our NEW RELEASE contest on MONDAY!

Webster fancypantdesigns personal planner spread cover by  evelynpy
This is the first time I’ve had a personal planner by Webster’s Pages and I’m in love. Such a perfect planner… the size is perfect for planning on the go! The ivory color is so me! It perfectly matches with the Fancy Pant Designs Attwell collection.

I didn’t have to wait too long to decorate my planner and make some lists using the Attwell sticky notes, washi tapes, puffy stickers mixed with some FPD previous collections.

I created this weekly planner spread. I decorated some of the boxes using puffy stickers, washi, tags and flair. I did some mini layering. It’s ok to make it a little bit bulky because after the week is over I can take some off the papers so the planner will not too bulky anymore.

The puffy stickers and the different designS of the sticky notes from the Attwell collection perfectly match with my small handwriting.

Hope this spread can inspire you and happy planning, planner girl!

Planning with Webster’s Pages: Day 4

05/19/16

Hey everyone, Amy here to share some planner goodness with you.  I was thrilled to get the amazing Natural Personal Planner from Webster’s Pages  to work with.  The size is perfect to throw in my purse. I couldn’t wait to grab the Attwell line and create.  I’m telling you the bags are perfect for carrying all my pens and goodies to use in my planner.

The My Stuff bag, which is just adorable, contained most of my planner tools.

I added some of the sticky notes to the pockets on the cover and grabbed my pens to get started.

Here is the cover for May. I kept it simple by adding a strip of patterned paper and creating a little cluster of embellishments.

Then I got started creating the May calendar spread.  I loved adding little bits here and there and will continue to fill in stuff as the month goes on.

Planning with Webster’s Pages: Day 3

05/18/16

My love affair with paper crafting and creating started long ago when I was a little girl.  I was obsessed with office supplies and the Sanrio store (Hello Kitty).  I think I have always had a planner.  I have several planner apps on my smart phone, but to me nothing really beats a real planner that you can write in and tangibly feel and touch.

Today I am sharing a little bit of the inside of my Webster’s Pages Color Crush Planner along with some Fancy Pants Designs Attwell collection.  The Attwell collection is a must have for anyone with a planner.  There are tags, sticky notes, pens, washi tape, cute little bags and more!

WebstersPages_Atwell_LatishaYoast
For this particular week it was quite busy so I decorated it minimally.  I added washi tape to the inside of the pages.  Added a few puffy stickers, a sticky note and then created a fun paper clip by adhering a bow from the Millie & June collection to the paper clip.

WebPages-Atwell_LatishaYoast3
I had a few paper scraps from my 6×6 pad that I didn’t want to waste so I created a tag using a die cut. I added a good stuff sticky note, and then again created a fun decorated paper clip by adhering one of the Attwell collection Flair pins to a paper clip.

WebPages-Atwell_LatishaYoast4
Decorating my planner is just an extension of paper crafting for me.  It just makes me happy!!  Oh before I forget… the Attwell Pens write really, really, really well!
