DIY Halloween fauxdori

I received some Tree Leather products a while back as a gift and had kept them in the hopes of doing stamped projects with them. When I recently decided that fauxdori / traveller’s notebooks were the way I wanted to go in terms of planning, I broke out the StazOn and got stamping. The first…

October Daily 2016 – results

This year was my first year taking a crack at October Daily (See my previous post here for more details about Serena Bee’s October Daily). I have always enjoyed memory keeping. Keeping a diary as a child led to keeping ticket stubs and photos, then it was amateur smash book-style notebooks and photo albums, which…

Halloween craft – countdown blocks

I am super excited to share these Halloween countdown blocks with you. It was a project I worked on all throughout September (along with many other things). I ended up with 13 large sets and 10 small sets, but hopefully that will be enough. Materials: wooden blocks – 3 per set (1.5″ for small and…

Halloween greeting card – eyeball shaker

Hey there! I am excited to show you this shaker card I made with Jillibean Soup mason jar shaker card pieces. I am a big fan of shaker cards but these are the first ones I have made. On some of them, I coloured the back of the googly eyes with a red permanent marker…

Halloween craft – door sign

Hello. I am making up a storm here and thought I would show you one of the projects I am working on. These are Halloween door signs. One side is for when you have candy, and you flip the sign over when you’re out. Anyone who reads the sign is less likely to knock. Sometimes…

DIY planner busy day inserts

This DIY was inspired by the sections of my Webster’s Pages week-on-two-pages (Wo2P) getting too full. There would be so much information in each day’s section that stickers and stamps were only making things worse. And to write things with just pen (maybe bullet journal style) wasn’t what I wanted to do. Enter this insert:…

Back To School Album (and update)

Hi there! It has been a while but I have lots to show you! Shall we start with this back to school album? I cut some kraft paper to fit journaling cards. I spray inked both sides with a Heidi Swapp green to add some shimmer. Washi tape was used for binding, inspired by  these…

DIY planner dividers

Hi there! I finally am getting to a planner post 😀 I was bitten by the productivity bug last week and on top of all the cards I made, I also made some dividers and a marker for my new Recollections personal sized planner I picked up on Friday. I started with papers that I…

my intro to the MAMBI Happy Planner

Hi there! I have been taking a break from making cards to pursue my latest foray into a life-long passion… planning!!! By now you may be seen the elaborate planner spreads people are creating, often on those simple pages in those everyday planners you are already familiar with. Filofax agendas are no longer for boring…

fitness journal #1

Hi there! I was inspired last month to make myself a fitness journal. It was an exercise in both  creativity and in… well, exercise. My thinking was that if I had a nifty journal to keep track of my food and workouts that I would be more inclined to do so. Does this type of…

film journal

I have been watching a lot of films lately and wanted a way to write about them. I love TCM and wanted a place to jot down my thoughts on what I watch. I had made a template for books that is like a library card, but I didn’t think that format (maybe movie tickets?)…

steel box WIP

I got some galvanized steel boxes at IKEA a while ago, not realising that galvanized steel could present a problem when I went to paint them. After searching numerous sites I noticed that a lot of the information was for industrial use and not for a crafter. The most useful information I found was here,…
