Planning my Summer JOY

Hello LittleSummerJOY lovelies!!

Veronica here to share a great way to "plan" some summer JOY in your everyday planner. Currently I am using a Day Designer planner from Target. If you are thinking of jumping on the planner CRAZE bandwagon, this is a great option!

I was an avid scrapbooker and a part of me still gravitates towards memory keeping even in my planner. I would love to show you how I add tiny photos from my phone and onto my planner pages. It's a rather simple way to capture pictures of your Summer Scavenger Hunt or bucket list photos.

I use the PicFrame app & a Canon Selphy printer to create small 2x2" images that fit nearly perfect in all planners.
Select 4:3 option and the 3 horizontal frames & save the image to your phone.


Next use the Canon app to select the framed photo.  I select with a boarder.



I like to add in my photos from weeks prior or from the same week. 
As for the planning, I like to think I'm a simple kinda gal but sometimes I decorate in my planner like a scrapbook. :)
Here are some of my GO-TO supplies:



I decorate as I plan events and add watercolors, sticky notes and lots of stickers from my shops: www.chictags.com & www.etsy.com/shop/planneraddictshop



I would love to see your planner pages via instagram or your blog! Please leave me a comment below, I would love to check them out!

Hello Again!

Hello friends!

I'm back! So much has happened since I last wrote.
We have not moved. We cleaned and packed and were ready to list and God had other plans. Albert got a new job here so, I decided to start a new etsy shop. Nothing big just something that makes me extremely happy!
I've been making planner supplies for myself and decided to open an etsy with stamps, label stickers and buttons.
I also started an Instagram account for this NEW obsession: @1planner_addict. Come join me!

We are trying to settle into this new schedule that involves Albert working from home for another company. It will take some time to get used to, but after this last year, I'm ready for anything!
I'm usually not ok with change, but seeing that the industry has taken many twist and turns, it's best that I go with the flow and embrace this new venture. I am going to bring back small kits again this summer but for now I'm just happy God has provided a new path for us. :)
Thanks for all your support and love...we appreciate each and every one of you!

-Veronica & Albert

A break

Hi Friends!!!
Veronica stopping in to say Happy 2015! We are taking a short break from new items/kits until we move. We are in the process of de-cluttering and putting our home on the market. Which includes getting rid of great big piles of stuff!

This process needs all our attention at the moment and we hope to be back and better than before. I have a list of all the great things I have planned for this year,  my goal is to have new product by mid Feb. Until then, our shop will remain open with all our older beautiful products.See you SOON!!

xoxo, Albert, Veronica and the crazy kiddos

Buddy

Hello, there!  Jennie here with you once again and I am so excited to share a fun + festive page I created with the Christmas Cheer kit. I'm telling you, this kit exceeded all expectations I might have had -- I absolutely love every last bit of it!

Even more perfect than the bits and pieces that just never seem to end?  The fact that there are adorable elf themed embellishments.  It can really be hard to find the perfect ones if you look elsewhere.



As you can see from my page, awesome elf embellishments were exactly what I needed to create this fun page about our Elf On the Shelf, Buddy.

We love to see how you are using the awesome Christmas Cheer kit, plus how you use all of our Chic Tags products.  Link up your creations on our Facebook page!

Chic Tags | Favorite Products

Hi everyone, Diane here, sharing one of my go-to quick products for pulling together layouts and cards...pocket cards! Not only are they great for pocket scrapbooking, but they can speed up the process of traditional layout and card making too.

Today I'm sharing two cards using pocket cards from the Christmas Cheer exclusive kit.

 For this card I used the exclusive die cuts, acrylic stars and a pocket card. I love the traditional colors and the stars are amazing. One of my favorite products of the year!

 On this card I used the snowflake pocket card, layered over vellum and a pretty off white background. I simply added some rhinestones to the center of the snowflakes to dress it up.
When you are in need of a quick and easy card, don't overlook your stash of pocket cards...they are perfect for pulling together and fabulous card in a hurry!

Chic Tags Sequined Christmas Tree DIY Framed Gift

Hello everyone! Happy December! I today finds you in a happy or at least peaceful holiday spirit.
I am back to share with you a little DIY project I shared here on the blog back earlier this fall. But since many of you don't get to creating for the holidays until closer to the holidays (I totally get that!) I thought I'd share it with those of you who may have missed it the first go around.

The project centers around the awesome Chic Tags wood veneer sequins. I used spray mist to color them and glued them down to some scrap card stock and then trimmed around the perimeter of the tree.

For more details and explanations on Chic Tags products used, click here.

Have a safe and happy holiday season!
