September 7-14 - mambi

Good morning everyone.  As you have seen before, I like to start planning my week with a color pallet.  For this week, I chose washi tape that would blend well with the color of pages in my planner.  I did not want the morning, afternoon, evening words on my days, so I used a thin washi to cover that.  I used the bottom section as a place to decorate.  The top and middle sections were for the days activities.  This is what my week looked like when I was done.  The black peeking up from the right side is the next weeks decor.  I do move my folders around.  I love the black one and find that I use that the most.  

If you would like to see more about my week in planning, please go to the mambi blog.  That is where I will be!

Fall Harvest - Paper Issues - Crop

Good morning!
Time to wake up and participate in some, if not all of the fun challenges over at the Paper Issues Fall Crop.  Now, 10:00am, is my time for a challenge.  I have challenged you, and all other scrappers, to create a layout using the amazing Swag Bag.  Only offered over on the PI store.  It contains lots of bits and pieces of the most current product available. 

The catch is, you can only use one, uno, 1, sheet of 12x12 paper to accompany your Swag Bag layout.  You can mix and match bags or use only one, that part is up to you.  

Here is what I created.  

Grab a Swag Bag or anything else you need from the store with code: Mary-Ann for 20% off.

Guest Designer over at Simple Stories

I can not even explain to you how excited I am to be guest designing over at Simple Stories today.  
When given the assignment of creating a Christmas Mini Album, I was pretty stoked.
Then, the box arrived.  I was a bit overwhelmed by all of the beautiful items they sent me to play with.  An over-flowing box of the Claus & Co. collection.  An amazing Christmas Sn@p album and more!  After picking through all the goodies, I decided this mini would be a plan all - December Daily book all in one.  Here is a few sneak peek photos.  I do hope you will hop over to 
Simple Stories to check out the remaining parts of my book.  It was a blast to create!

Thank you stopping in today.  Hope you have been inspired to get your December Daily planned and ready to go.  Making your holiday season that much easier.

Happy - Paper Camellia

Today is a big day over at Paper Camellia.  
We are announcing the November scrapbooking kit and add ons that are available.  
This month is probably one of my favorites.  It combines Pink Paislee with touches of Jen Hadfields, Homemade collection.  It is definitely fitting product for this time of year.  

Here is a look at my first layout for the month, using only the Main Scrapbooking kit.  I didn't use half of the product available.  There are thickers that will be making a debut on my projects later in the month that is for sure.  

I fussy cut these flowers out of one of the Pink Paislee Cedar Lane papers.  I layered some with foam tape for dimension.  
This is my family and my mom, apple picking just a few weeks ago.  I think we were on the hay ride here.  

For my title.  I chopped down one of the 3x4 cards and covered the bottom word.  
I wanted the blue and just the word Happy.  
Thanks for taking a peek.
