How To Make Planner Stickers using Cricut Design Space

Category: My Crafty Projects  |  Permalink

Published: Wednesday, November 2, 2016

Do you love using a paper planner? I do! I also still use the calendar on my iPhone/computer(s) but there is nothing like having it on paper. :) I love making lists, planning ahead and of course, since I love paper crafting I want my planner to look cute too. After having an Erin Condren, a Happy Planner, a Day Planner, an ARC planner I still wasn't feeling plannerfied <<< totally just made that word up. LOL! I loved the inserts for many of them but was wanting a different look of the actual planner, so I bit the bullet and "invested" in my dream planner. Ahhhh, I'm absolutely loving it!!! However, it comes empty and you have to purchase the inserts separately. There are tons of A5 size inserts out there to choose from. I have done a lot of research looking into a bunch of them to see which ones I wanted to go with. I'm still narrowing it down between a few companies for the 2017 inserts, for this agenda. Yes, I use 2. (I'm crazy like that) I plan on using my Close To My Heart 2017 planner for my businesses and this one for a little of everything. In the meantime, I found printable ones I liked on Etsy and have been printing them out myself. They are very much like the Erin Condren layouts, except the Saturday and Sunday boxes are stacked to accommodate the A5 size (as shown in the pic below).

I love the look of planners with stickers on them but couldn't see myself actually ordering tons and tons of stickers on Etsy. Well actually, I totally CAN see myself doing that but since I'm pretty crafty I decided to figure out how to do it on my own so I could create what I wanted, whenever I need them and not have to purchase any. I played around with Cricut Design Space a bunch to figure things out and finally have it down where I can get all my stickers designed out for the following week, printed, cut and on my planner in about 30 minutes. Sometime it takes longer if I am having a hard time deciding on which designs to go with but the process doesn't take too long. Well, I figured I'd share how easy it is so you can jazz up your planners if you'd like too. :)

 Here is a video I made to walk you through how I make them...


Hope this was helpful. Let me know if you have questions.

Damask Divas Blog Hop Featuring Happy Times

Category: My Crafty Projects  |  Permalink

Published: Sunday, May 1, 2016

Hello, Hello!

Are you ready to check out some fabulous Happy Times projects?! Well get ready cause our Close To My Heart National Scrapbooking promo is this awesome Happy Times paper pack and some of my Damask Divas team and I are going to be sharing our projects with you.

Here is the quick & easy project I made...

I used a glass mason jar and coated the bottom of the jar with liquid glass. I just used my finger to smear it all in and a paper towel to get the line straight all the way around. Then sprinkled pink glitter all over the jar until the liquid glass area was completely covered. I let that dry then just cut a strip of the Happy Times floral print paper and adhered the strip around the jar. Super easy! To jazz it up and a little sentiment I used the Artistry Cricut Cartridge from Close To My Heart and cut out the tag, stamped the banner portion of the tag with "you are fabulous", added some sequins and attached it with some white twine..... viola. It was so easy. Then I wanted another little giftie to go with the flowers so I jazzed up this little tin filled with chocolates. Nothing fancy... just some paper adhered to the inside and tied some orange tulle in a bow. Easy but cute, don't you think?  

You know I'm all about quick & easy these days. It's all I've really had time for lately with the little ones.

To check out more fab projects, please HOP on over to Cheri's blog HERE.

If you'd like to order this Happy Times paper pack you may order here or from the consultant who sent you here. It's actually FREE with a $60 order and we are also offering an exclusive D-sized coordinating stamp set for $17.95.

Quick and Easy La Vie En Rose Card

Category: My Crafty Projects  |  Permalink

Published: Wednesday, February 17, 2016

I wanted to share the quick card I made today using the La Vie En Rose Paper Pack from Close To My Heart. It's my current favorite paper pack. I'm loving the black and white stuff... which is probably no surprise since my craft room is decorated the same. :)

I simply used a white card base and covered it with the black and white polka dot paper. Then used the pink zip strip which is the extra strip that comes on our 12 x 12 paper and then placed one of our Picture My Life Cards in the Beautiful You set right over the top. PML cards can be used for so many different things. Super easy to use with cards, you can add them to your scrapbook pages, do a pocket page layout, add them in your planner.... so much fun stuff. You should check them HERE out if you don't already have any. I then just added that cute little bow that comes in the Fundamentals Accessories Gold Set.

Super quick and easy that I had time to jazz up the envelope too. I just used a strip of the paper and cut it to fit exactly on the envelope flap, then added some of the pink to match up with the card even more. Easy peasy!!!

Can't wait to mail out this Hello Darling Card. :)

Damask Divas Everyday Life Planner Blog Hop

Category: My Crafty Projects  |  Permalink

Published: Wednesday, January 13, 2016

Hi all! Welcome to the Damask Divas Team Blog Hop featuring our Brand New Everyday Life Planner from Close To My Heart. Have you seen it yet? It's so awesome. I'm excited several of my team members and I are going to be sharing it with you on this hop. I hope we're able to give you a variety of ideas for using it.

Are you the planner type? Or do it all digital? I tend to keep track of things both in a paper planner format and online. There are some things I need to pop up and alert me but others I want written down that I can see and check off as I go. And let me tell you ... I'm SOOOO excited that Close To My Heart now offers a planner line, it's amazing! Not only can you use it as a planner but you can document your day to day life, add pocket pages for pictures and picture my life (PML) cards, plus add in My Crush pages to do like a mini scrapbook. Eek... it's so fun. The possibilities are endless.

There are so many different ways you can use your planner. I debated whether I wanted to use it to track my new diet/exercise program, everyday activities, blog schedule, work, kids, etc.... I ended up using the weekly spread as my check list of things I need to do that day which combines a little of it all. As a busy mom with 4 kids (2 are in school), you can imagine all the running around I do, plus their sports (karate, gymnastics and volleyball), and I work from home. So my list is quite long and this weekly layout gives me the perfect amount of space to keep a list of what tasks I need to do, errands I need to run, bills to get paid, etc.

(*Click photos to view larger}



I wanted mine to look even more jazzed up so I cut out small rectangles using the sheets in the My Crush pack that is an add on item for theEveryday Life Planner line. They were cut out at 2" x 1.5". I added the sticker strip that comes with the calendar pages to the bottom of each rectangle. I loved the look of it but also plan to add text there too. I used some of my Close To My Heart stamp sets (Camper Crazy, My Life and Crazy Good)

For the inside cover page I used this months promo cards, which you so NEED.... they are called Live Your Day and are only $8.95 this month. They can be used for the planner pages, put on cards, home décor, scrapbooking, and so much more. I added a little washi tape, some treasured puffies and just had fun making it look cute. At the beginning of each month I am using the pocket memory protectors and putting the month and birthday list that came in the Live Your Day cards. I mixed in some other PML cards and will add in some pictures on the back side once I print some. :)

And if you're wondering what it looks like when you get it, here it is...

Hope I gave you some ideas ... I know my team has lots more. So let me pass you over to the next Damask Diva on the hop list.... Jennifer Dykstra. CLICK HERE to head on over and check out her fabulous planner pages.
