Stamping in your Planner {mambi}

Yesterday I had a post up on the me & my BIG ideas blog showing you how to DIY some patterned boxes in your HAPPY PLANNER™. I have really used my planner the past couple of weeks (SO. BUSY.) and it's so fun to add some cute little decorations here and there. 

Here's the completed layout:

I used the little stamp daubers to make the little heart pattern here:




There's a little tutorial on the mambi blog on how to stamp in the little boxes in your HAPPY PLANNER™ if you're interested! Click HERE to visit the post. :)

CURRENTLY lists {mambi}

Helllllllooooooo! It's been a while, folks! I don't really know what happened. I blame it all on Kevin, my boyfriend. LOL I spend a lot of time either talking to him or being with him. Which isn't a bad thing! :)

Last week, I shared a project on the me & my BIG ideas blog that showed how I changed over my favorite CURRENTLY lists from my old planner to my new planner.



I am also going to be popping in a page protector each month filled with cute cards and pictures that I love. Just something to make me happy. ;) So here's the short process of that:

Scrapbook Page Step-by-Step Tutorial {mambi}

The other day I just had the urge to create a step-by-step tutorial for the making of a scrapbook page using me & my BIG ideas products. So, I took out my white posterboard, my camera and tripod, and my scrapbook products outside on the deck and got to work. It was a beautiful day and I really love how all the photos and the final layout came out. 

Here's just one of the process photos, but you can view the entire walkthrough HERE on the mambi blog. :) 


And here's the final layout. I didn't use any patterned paper on this layout. (Whaaaaaa?!)  




Hope you're having a good summer so far! It's just started, but I have this inkling that it's going to fly by...

Decorative Gift Wrapping {mambi}

Do you ever get a product that you're so excited to use and can't wait to break it out of the packaging and make something with it? That's how I felt about the expandable paper pads from me & my BIG ideas. I remember seeing them at CHA and thinking, "WOW- what gorgeous designs!" So when the design team received them a couple months ago, I was sooooooo excited to wrap up some gifts! 

This particular box is actually the mini album that I made for my friend Makenna. I thought "The Best is Yet to Come" quote sticker from one of the new HAPPY PLANNER™ sticker packs was the perfect little sentiment for a graduation gift. :)

Mini Album {mambi}

Hello! Happy Wednesday! I'm up on the me & my BIG ideas blog today sharing a fun little mini album that I put together as a graduation gift for my friend Makenna. 

I kept this mini very simple and tried to keep the focus on the pictures. I used journaling cards (I trimmed some 4x6" down to 4x4") for the bases of the pages and just adhered them back to back. 





And some close-ups:


This is so true. And I'm glad I got it down in stickers. ;)




I hope my friend loves this as much as I loved making it! Be sure to check out more about this little mini album on the mambi blog today!

Planner Spread {mambi}

I'm back again with a planner spread in my awesome Happy Planner™! This time I used some 3x4 journaling cards to fill in blank spaces in my planner blocks. I even fussy cut out some of the flowers from one of the patterns to fill in spots! 








Check out the entire blog post on the mambi blog HERE (because I don't feel like typing out a whole blog post... lol)! :D

Planner Dashboard {mambi}

I love making different little dashboards for my HAPPY PLANNER™. It makes it so effortless with the punch that was just released at CHA this past January. 

There are some awesome new POCKET PAGES™ cards that mambi recently released and I just knew I wanted to try something out to use lots of those adorable 3x4 patterned cards. So I fussy-cut out some alphas from the POCKET PAGES™ cards and made a little dashboard divider. That flower cluster and little swag a the top and bottom are even cut from the cards as well. :)
