Sticky Notes Layout {me & my BIG ideas}

Hey guys! Today is Friday! Yaaaaay!! I’ve been so busy with wedding stuff and designing my Christmas scrapbook collection with Pretty Little Studio. It’s been pretty crazy. I go from being overjoyed with life to being overwhelmed with life in usually a matter of minutes. We’re trying to get as much done as we can with wedding plans (Wait— Did I not mention I was engaged??? Well I am! November 12th is the day! I’ll write a post on that later). We’ve already gotten a LOT done, but of course there’s still a LOT to do. Seems like we’re getting to all the crafty stuff that needs to be done, which takes a good chunk of time to do. It’s all fun though— I am so excited for the big day! I have to remember this only happens ONCE and that I need to sit back and relax. Breathe with me…. inhale……… exhale……..

A couple of days ago, I had a layout on the me & my BIG ideas blog featuring none other than one of my favorite HAPPY PLANNER™ products: sticky notes. I really love how this layout turned out, and seriously, 95% of this layout was made from planner products. The other 5% is that “i love you” title sticker. That’s from a regular sticker pack from mambi. ;) 

I love cross-using products. Everything is similar, really. It’s all paper or stickers! So it’s easy to switch from one “genre” of crafting to the other. I wanted to show that with this page. Read more about this project HERE on the me & my BIG ideas blog. I have more to say, but no need in me repeating myself. Just go see it there. :)

What’s so sad is thinking that seriously, I only have ONE month left designing with me & my BIG ideas. How CRAZY is that?? I have been on their team for two years now, and it’s been a FABulous experience. It seems weird to think of making monthly projects NOT being on my list. It’s been a fun journey though! Maybe I’ll do a recap of my favorite mambi projects later. :) I’ve got my mind going with all sorts of blogging ideas just through writing this post! Anyways, back to what I was saying. It is bittersweet… I am not planning on continuing with me & my BIG ideas another year. I think it will be good to have a fresh face on the team instead of me. :) I will definitely be keeping up with mambi though and all my teammates there because they are just AMAZING. Seriously. 

See ya soon!

Summer Vibes: Clear Stamps

We have added some new products this time to my new line with Pretty Little Studio, and here's the first one: CLEAR STAMPS! I am verrrrrrry excited about these. It's so surreal seeing these in person because, seriously, designing my own stamps has been one of my DREAMS. It's so exciting to see your dreams come true. ;)

I'm excited to get to use these on my projects. I can see those pineapples being so cute on a card and that little label and airmail-type stamp strip looking perfect on Project Life cards. Oh- and there's two planner-focused stamps-- the "today flag" and little polka dot flag. Can't wait to use them in my planner too! 

They are available for purchase HERE if you're interested! :)

Scrapbook Circle Guest Designer!

I am super excited to announce that I am the guest designer for this month’s “Snapshot” kit over at Scrapbook Circle! It has always been one of my dreams to be on a kit design team, and although this isn’t permanent by any means, it’s still SO exciting! I love working with kits because everything works together so well and leaves more room for having FUN creating the project. 

This month’s kit includes a lot of the “Outfitters” line from Pink Paisee which is adorable. It’s an outdoors-y line, and I KNEW that I needed to scrapbook some photos of Kevin and I because we are outside a lot when we are together. So both projects I made with the kit are of K & I. 

I actually made a little process post for the making of this page, if you want to check it out on the Scrapbook Circle blog HERE. :)

Planner Spread {mambi}

I had a planner post on the me & my BIG ideas blog a couple of weeks ago and am just getting around to sharing it here on my blog! Oops! 

I am loving all the new planner products that me & my BIG ideas is releasing. This spread uses a lot of new stickers and sticky notes. Layers, layers, layers... that's what I like! :) 

I didn't have much planned for Thurs- Sun of this week's spread (I think I was going on a trip), so I trimmed down a piece of grid paper from one of the HAPPY PLANNER™ paper packs and glued it on that side of the spread. I jotted down some different notes and sketches on the right side. I like how you can adjust the HAPPY PLANNER™ for your different needs. 

Of course, if you want to visit the main post on the mambi blog, click HERE. :)

Fancy Free Card

Believe it or not, I HAVE been creating a lot this summer! I had forgotten how much I LOVED creating… it’s such a therapy for me! Mostly I’ve been catching up on my Project Life album (I was so behind!) and making some cards. 

The Fancy Free collection by Paige Evans for Pink Paislee was by far my FAVORITE CHA 2016 release, and so I’ve been having some fun with it since I bought it a few months ago. This collection is just so bright and cheery!! 

I love scrapbooking products. So much. There's just something about pretty papers and colors that makes my heart happy. I just ordered Paige's new "Take me Away" collection from Paper Issues and I cannot WAIT to create with it (and I need to go ahead and share this card before it's too much of "old news")!

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. :)
