Damask Divas Everyday Life Planner Blog Hop
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.

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.
