Finally Facing The Cameo!

Hello! Today I am sharing a planner lay out that I am immensely proud of, I decided to try and print and cut a kit using my Cameo…now I know that doesn’t sound much to a lot of you guys but to me(and some other Cameo users) it can be a battle of wills usually resulting in me swearing and vowing to sell the Cameo!

This time was different, I put on some music, took in a nice wee Costa Latte and talked nicely to Cammy(the Cameo). I picked a kit from Etsy, it came with Silhouette cut files(obvs!) I dusted off the A4 sticker sheets I bought over a year ago and oh, funny story here…we got a new fancy shmancy printer a few weeks ago which I have not the foggiest how to load…hubby was out so I actually had to phone him to ask him how to load the printer! Nothing is ever plain sailing in my craft room lol.

After a 5 minute phone call, who knew the paper thingies were under the flat that you had to open to get the printed stuff out?

Here is my layout for this week. I am a bit behind as the anxiety demons took over at the weekend and I am slowly catching up with things.

Thanks for popping by, I hope this inspires you to face your Cameo demons.

Planning Time

Hello, and happy Friday Eve! Today I am sharing this weeks lay out in my Erin Condren planner using a beautiful kit from Beautiful Planning. It is called ‘Sweet Dreams BeePee’ and words really well with lots of the other functional stickers from Beautiful Planning.

Some of my favourite functional stickers has to be the Steps Counter Sticker, so I can keep a track of my daily steps. The Small Ombre Checklist Boxes are really handy too for notes or for things you need to remember to buy.

As you may have noticed I am not usually a “pastelly” person when I craft and plan, but I love the contrast in my pages from week to week of super bright one week and pretty pastels the next.

Planning News!

Hello, it’s been a while as things have been a bit crazy busy here. Glad to say all is good though and I am trying to get into some kind of routine with my crafting…wish me luck!

As some of you will have seen from my Instagram, I am loving decorating my Erin Condren Planner just now, and I was lucky enough to be asked to joining the Beautiful Planning Design Team. Tash makes the most beautiful high quality, practical stickers and I have been using her range from the start of my planning journey. Todays post is using the Mermaid kit and lots of extra stickers like the Positive QuotesStep Tracker and the Blog Upload Tracker.

Another Week, Another Planner Layout.

Hello, where is this month going? I am about to share another planner layout with you and I can’t believe it’s halfway through August already.

When I plan the week ahead I like to pick a trio of colours that compliment each other, I always make sure I have the pens and ink in the colours too and of course a cheeky wee planner clip or 3!

Full details of where everything is from is on the same photo on my Instagram.

Planner Pretties

Whenever I have a sneaky free hour when I get home at night, I love heading to our craftroom engineering studio workshop to have a little “me” time with my trusty old Filofax!

I have,s0 far, resisted buying a new Filofax as I love the fact mine is plain old brown leather. However, when you open it there is nothing plain or boring about the inside and I really think this adds to the charm of it. Hubby bought me it as a wedding planner over 12 years ago and it is sturdy, reliable and been through a lot with me over the years. Anyway I digress…here is my first weekly tartification of my Websters Pages inserts.
