planning for April
Hello Scrapbook Circle friends!
I hope your March has been good to you, and you are enjoying the start of Spring. I’m sure like me, your month has flown by! I’m already planning ahead for April. April is a busy month for us, as both my oldest daughter’s and my husband’s birthdays are in April. Planning my month out is crucial to keeping me on schedule, and it doesn’t hurt to make it pretty! I like to have a good month at a glance spread, and then I will get more detailed (and messy) in my weekly spreads.
I love including photos in my planner. I put a photo of my older daughter on her birthday, and a recent photo of my husband and I on his birthday. I also included a recent favorite photo of my girls on one of the empty days. Next, I used my Paige Evans Pink Paislee stamp set. I used the lines, and the bullet points on the days that I needed it with blue ink. I also stamped a few of the other images, like the florals in the corner, and the Weekend with black ink. Then, I cut out squares from a few of the Amy Tangerine multi-square 6×6 pages, and they fit perfectly in my calendar squares! I especially love the Taco truck, which I put in a Tuesday square, and the succulents. After filling my planner with important dates and to-dos, I embellished with stickers. I also made a page marker using Amy Tangerine papers, and my planner punch tool. Finally, I made a bow using metal dies, my die cutting machine, and Amy Tangerine papers. I adhered the bow to a paper clip, and clipped it to my planner.
I hope my post today has inspired you to get creative with your planners. Happy crafting!
