Get More Into Your Planner

Space is a precious commodity. The more and more we save of our memories, the more and more space we occupy in our albums and by extension, our homes. I was just thinking about this red buffet of mine, full of scrapbook pages that I've done over the years and how much space they take up. Not that I regret doing them or the space they occupy, but in the grand scheme of things, I know I'm much happier condensing my life into smaller--and just as meaningful--pages, whether it's 8 1/2 x 11" or my much loved TNs (traveler's notebooks). [...]

Traveler’s Pack: Paradise

Once upon a time there was a little girl who was taking a trip across the big blue ocean to the beautiful island of Kauai. She knew she wanted to write her stories of the trip and needed the prefect accessories to accommodate such stories of travels and adventure, and Traveler's Pack: Paradise was born.   The kit comes with seven cover papers sized the same as a Midori cover, which is 8.75" x 8.25". Of course you can size as needed. You can also use them as paper in the book as well as what they were intended for…covers. This kit [...]

Take Note

While fall seems to be the time to document what you are grateful for, spring is the perfect time to take note of the favorite things in your life. Everything is fresh and new. You want to freshen up your wardrobe with new spring clothes--I know it made me feel good the other day. ;) You buy new bins and tools to organize your home. You want to watch the new buds grow on your lilac tree. Spring is a perfect time for documenting what's new. Take a look at what Marcy did with a favorite item of hers. From [...]

Is This Thing On?

oh. my. gosh.   I am so excited to be live again! I don’t even know where to begin! Let’s talk fun stuff first and then we’ll talk about the crazy stuff. ;) The Fun Stuff A New Look Shortly after I got my new site up four years ago, I decided I wanted a more clean and simple look. Short version, I could only change my blog and couldn’t ever get anyone to change the store and message board to match. But that’s a story for another day. Now, I LOVE that I have full control over aesthetics because [...]

Plan, Plan, Plan!

It seems like everywhere you turn, there is some sort of awesomeness in the Planner world. I guess everyone wants to get organized in creative fashion, eh? Well, speaking of creative fashion and awesomeness, here's some great planner ideas from our Miss Layle. It is truly fabulous. Take it away Layle! Back in June I used the Travelers Notebook Dividers in this post to customize my Travelers Notebook and loved them so much that I wanted to create custom dividers for my Simple Stories 6x8 Life Documented Planner that I use for work. I used the 6x8 Dividers cut file to create 4 dividers with side tabs [...]

Changing Length Or Width Of Designs

Probably the most common way of altering a design to fit the size you need in Silhouette Studio is to grab those handles and pull and tug at them. But did you know there's another way you can do it on many designs that doesn't distort the shape? Welllll, check it out! (This technique is perfect for the planner kits too. :) )

Get ‘Er Done.

Planners have been around for a long time. Heck, I even made pages specifically for the group of people I worked with at WordPerfect over 20 years ago. I know. Wow, right? That's some pretty high-tech work for waaaay back then. You try getting them printed right for duplexing properly for the month. :) There's something about organizing…about office supplies…keeping records…. I think many of us are in this boat--the love of supplies and what we can do with them. It's kind of a craze, really. But I think part of working at home has changed my way of thinking in that [...]
