Desktop Monday By SANDRA



On my desk is the super cool gold foil washi set from the freckled fawn shop, some cardstock and a tag punch and some other shape punches. 


I adhered the washi to the cardstock and punched out some tags and other shapes. 


This is a super easy and super fast way to make your own unique tags and embellishments. 


Have fun creating :). Xoxo, Sandra

Tutorial Friday By CANDI


Happy Friday, FF Fans!!!  Today I am sharing a quick and easy way to create a stencil using heavy cardstock, a few punches, stipple brushes (or cosmetic wedges) and ink pads.
 
Punch out your image on the heavy cardstock...
 
I grabbed a piece of paper to put behind my project so my table didn't get all inky!  On top of the paper, I have a white tag and then on top of my tag, I placed the heart stencil that I created. 
 
Time for some fun...!  Take your stipple brush or cosmetic wedge and load it up with plenty of ink by "dabbing" the tool (stipple brush or cosmetic wedge) on the ink pad several times.  Hold your stencil in place with one hand and with the other hand you will take your tool and apply color to the opening of your stencil...in this case, the heart that I created.  You may need to ink up your tool several times to get the color that you are wanting!
 

To finish off the tag I added some sketch alpha stickers and a cork arrow...
 
You can add ribbon to this tag and put it on a gift or........you can add it to your planner like I did :)
 
Besides making tags, you could create some awesome backgrounds on cards and scrapbook layouts using this technique!  

Have fun creating this weekend...

Desktop Monday By ADRIENNE



Currently on my desk are some little love notes and cards that I'm going to include in my children's backpacks and lunch boxes to help them get back in the swing of school because they start back tomorrow! Yikes!  I can't believe how fast the summer flew by, can you?
 

Happy Monday!

Planning with OHDEERME - August Edition


Whoo hoo...welcome back to this months edition of Planning with OHDEERME!!!  Today I am showing you how I decorated my week, inside my ban.do agenda.  This months kit, Iconic, is so much fun with that diecut glitter washi tape, flat paper clips and gold puffy arrow stickers!!!!!!!
 
Here I have everything laid out and a clean planner spread...let's create!!!
 
This planner spread is super EASY!!!  It really took me a couple of minutes to add some vellum pattern strips, flat paper clips and some epoxy icon stickers!  You can see here, I even pulled out my FF stash and used an "old" sticker!!!
 

I think the sketch alpha stickers are my favorite from this kit!!!!  You can leave them just the way they are or color them in :)
Wednesday is "Hump Day"...ahhhhhh, mid week...almost there!!!!!!
 
Here are a few more close up shots of my decoration...super simple!  That kite is from my FF stash :)
 
There you have it...my week all set and ready to plan!!!  I love the space in this planner...so much room to jot down a list for each day!!!
 
Hope all of you planner addicts are enjoying these planner posts!!!  I love taking the kit each month and not only creating crafty projects with them for the inspiration gallery, but also adding the fun embellishments inside my planner!  

I know I am always reminiscing about these posts, but I just looked back at some older posts and NEXT month will be my 12th planning blog post!!!!  I think we might have to plan a planner party for one year...what do you think???

See you next month!!!
Happy Planning,
Candi
