Planner Items Up On Etsy!

The more I learn about planners and the planning community, the move I LOVE it!  I thoroughly enjoy sitting down to plan my week with all my fun supplies.  I have noticed that I'm actually accomplishing more!   So of course, my ever creating mind got right to work on what I could contribute to my planner.  I am so happy to report, my brain did not fail me. I created these super fun transparencies.  I have several designs listed on my Etsy shop!  Go take a peek HERE! 


Scripture Journaling Products

I also recently discovered a VERY talented Bible Journaling community. And let me tell you, these journalers are amazing and very inspirational. I started off trying to draw in my scriptures, and well, I am not an artist the drawing sense of the word. As I began to look around at ideas, I ran into all sorts of products specifically for Bible Journalers.  (I will share my favorite finds with you in another post.) So anyways, as you may have figured out from a few posts, I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I tried to find products out there for Book of Mormon journaling. While there are a few, and a few AMAZING blogs, I realized my love for planners and this new love of scripture journaling could go hand in hand.  So, my new transparencies can be adhered to your scriptures, journals and planners!  I even have Christian and LDS specific designs.   So take a peek HERE at my Etsy Shop!
Here are a few samples of how I have used them in my scriptures:

Planner Newbie!

So first off, this is my first post using an app. Hoping it turns out well and I might just be more apt to blog more. Of course, I might blog more if .......I put it in my new handy, dandy, planner!

 I had been stalking a few Instagram planner addicts, and let me tell you, I couldn't get enough. So, I made up my mind. I was getting a new planner. No more messy notebook paper for me.  I set off to Michaels with my coupon in hand, and wouldn't you know, they were pretty much out of all the amazing planners (Heidi Swapp, Happy Planner, even the Michaels binder planners.) ugh. So I gave up, until I found this sweet "bohemian" end cap with this adorable notebook. I thought to myself, "self, I can make this my own."  So after spending an arm and leg on other items I left and got to work. 

I discovered the notebook is called a travelers notebook, an art journal or a midori. Since the notebook came with plain inserts, I planned on drawing my own calendar inside. But lo and behold, I found these great printables from Wendaful. I used her monthly and weekly calendars and just printed and cut at home....oh, and I had to use a corner punch for uniformity. I think it turned out great! 


There are many YouTube tutorials including this folder insert by TheSassyPineapple. Cute, huh? 

Oh, and this binder clip pen holder by @poochiebaby  ( I am dying that the owl is cut off. That will be fixed as soon as I get new duct tape) 

I need more bands to insert for my extra notebooks, but use one to tie together in the back. 

I have been using it for a few weeks now and love it! I love sitting down to plan the week and pulling out my drawer of stickers to embellish. Such a fun and productive hobby!

I Like to Look for Rainbows...

This little lovely was just baptized a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.   I found some adorable printables out there for her special baptism day, but I wanted to make something a little more "her." 

To download these free printables, click {HERE}
All the photos are jpeg and can be printed at your local photo printer. I've included 2 sizes for the guest book, an 11x14 which will be the square 11x11 and an 8x10. It's Great to be Eight!

 If you would like the digital paper that matches, you can find it from Graphics by Nina
Please use these printables for your own personal use.  Please do not share, but feel free to send them to this blog post.  Thank you!

The words from the printable are from a song "When I Am Baptized" by Nita Dale Milner
