Beach Babe in my Planner.

IMG_1148

Hi all!

Am super excited that it's my Saturday off! Today, I'm showcasing one of the new releases on Time for Tea Designs - Beach Babe. With summer drawing to a close here in the States, I thought she'd be perfect for a little marker for my planner.

If you haven't seen or heard of it yet, there's quite a comeback for regular, physical planners. This one is from Kikki K (love their company), and I've been decorating my pages. I mostly do it with colorful pens, washi tape, and stickers, but I've been dabbling with stamps too!

My sisters are going to Hawaii in a couple of days. I'm not able to go but I always like to remind myself of the beauty of the islands. And Beach Babe is just perfect for reminiscing about a Summer Getaway. I paired her with some Jolee's stickers and Jo included an accessory pack for a couple of her new stamps so I included those too. The mini images are from Beach Babe and Peace Out.

The heart macaron paper clips are from Mahal Made - aren't they cute?

Hope you get to visit the T4TD blog for more inspiration!! Thanks for visiting!!

Hi all!!

It's time for another Milk Coffee Challenge. This one's super easy! (at least for me anyway!). Add some stripes!

This darling is Charlotte Ballet, and she can be found at the Milk Coffee store.

The two patterned papers are actually pirate/ Halloween-themed, but I thought they were perfect for this image and challenge! Please visit the blog for more inspiration. You've got two weeks to play!!

I am so pleased at the amount of people who play along with Milk Coffee. As part of the DT, I'm responsible in commenting for some of the participants.. people, there were almost 200 people who joined in!! :) Thanks so much!!

Toodles,

Witches Away!

Happy Hump Day, folks!!

Today, C.C. Designs is having a review of its August releases. Here's the Meoples Witches Away. Love the Meoples. They're so simply drawn and so quirky... I've forgotten how much I liked them!

It was quite hard getting in the mood for Halloween in August. But when I went into Michael's, I noticed right away that they've put out a lot of Halloween stuff already! Well... better too early than too late, am I right??

I really enjoy making scenic cards for Halloween :).

Have a wonderful day and see you soon!

Summer's Coming to an End.

Good morning, peeps!

Happy Monday! Today, I've got a couple of new projects to show you featuring The Greeting Farm's Summer Time Print and Cut kit, as well as the add on kit of Summer Journal Cards.

I extended my son's preschool into their version of a Summer camp, but his last day is nearing. I wanted to make his teachers some good-bye cards. That's his writing there alongside Teacher Anya.

Planner Bliss.

IMG_1118

Happy Hump Day, y'all!!!

It's time for another Challenge at Milk Coffee tonight, and it's all about using two or more die-cuts. Now I went a bit rebellious this time and instead of your usual die-cut, I used these stickers from the bonus pack from the digital stamp Madeline Selfie on Summer Holiday.

And instead of a card, my project consists of decorating my planner. Have you all seen this latest craze? I know it's all about my instagram and craft Facebook. People have been decorating their planners (be it a Filofax or a Kikki-K like mine) like it's a scrapbook. I do it now and then but I don't think I've posted pictures here (I have on my craft IG - @rinnesbliss ).

These stickers are awesome because you can copy and paste them unto any of the Milk Coffee digi stamps or print them out by themselves like I did here. I just fussy cut around them. I also love how they have a shadow that gives them dimension!

The rest of the decorations came from my stash of stickers and washi tape. I also love using colored pens!

Hope you get to play along!!

Toodles,
