Planning With OHDEERME - April Edition

Hello and welcome back for another edition of Planning with OHDEERME!!!  I was looking back at some "old" blog posts and I started this monthly post back in October...crazy how the months just flyyyyyyy by!!!  Today I will be using the April ODM Kit inside of my planner.  I will be taking several pieces from that kit to decorate my Week 16.

To get started I pulled what was left of my kit, paper trimmer, 8 1/2 x 11 piece of white cardstock, single hole punch and my planner...

I trimmed down my piece of cardstock by measuring one of my inserts that came with my planner.  You will need two of the same size.  (some weeks I use my inserts that came with my planner and others I like to create my own from cardstock)
Take one of the inserts from your planner and use that as a template to mark your 6 holes and punch those out with your single hole punch.  (Side Note...I punched my holes before I added the washi tape, this means I will have to punch my holes again.  You can wait and punch your holes after you add your is up to you.)  Next I took a long enough piece of washi tape and laid that down 1/2 way on the edge of the insert...

Flip that insert over and press the other 1/2 of that washi tape to the back of the insert.  You will have some washi tape hanging off the edge so I trimmed that off with a pair of scissors.  Repeat the last two steps for your second insert.

For me...since I added washi tape to my inserts AFTER I punched my holes...I had to go back and re-punch the holes.  I was fine with that since you could see where I needed to punch through the washi tape...
I used the yellow puffy alphas to designate the days of the week.  I am obsessed with these puffy alphas!!!  Did you know that FF carries them in black, aqua, pink and white???!!!  
Next up, I added a wood butterfly and a few enamel hearts to my planner pages...
To make my pages pop a little...I used my teal ink pad to edge all four sides of each insert and added that cute little cloud paper clip!
To add a little page marker, I trimmed down a piece of transparency with my paper trimmer and punched 6 holes.  I then added a wood butterfly at the top (that butterfly will peek out of the top of my planner so I know exactly where my week is at) and added "Week 16" to the bottom...
Here it Week 16...all ready to go!!!  AND it's super cute with all of those FF embellishments!!!  
Hope you grabbed some inspiration from this post!!!  Don't forget to use #planningwithohdeerme when posting your decorated planner pages to your social media :) I love to see what you all create!!!

Happy Planning...
