Back to the start

By Creative Planning Team Member - Korrie-ann Peters

Do you ever just get mind block. You have all these lovely stickers and supplies but don’t know where to start. Well that’s me this week; I have so many ideas in my head but when I go to create they have gone, just disappeared. 

So here I am with my LifePlanner in front of me, the sticker collection I want to use, all I need now is the inspiration. 

To find the inspiration I decided to pull out my planners from over the years and looking through them I feel like I’ve lost my style somewhere along the way. Back when I started the part I loved most was the decorative side to planning, setting up a new planner each month or even half way through the month just because. Maybe time has gotten in the way, trying to do too much at once. I think I need to take a step back from what I’m currently doing and just start again, find my creativity again, think outside the box.

I picked up my carpe diem a5 and transferred my October pages over from my EC Agenda. I think this planner goes well with the Floral Bloom collection.

I started with my notes pages and placed the boxes onto my page. Orange is my most disliked colour so being able to cover it up is a great idea for me.

Next I went onto my weekly pages starting with the washi strips across the top and bottom of both pages. I decided I wanted lots of layering so I used the scalloped labels layered with the days of the week, this was inspired by Tracy's layout the other week.

When I saw the deco sheet I had an idea for the flowers, cutting them in half and having them popping out from behind the other stickers. I’ve actually used less stickers than normal but it still.feels like I have done more decorating.

For this part I got a little creative, taking the washi sheet and a piece of white card stock. I stuck the strips of washi onto the card and trimmed to size. I then punched holes down the edge and finished it off with a flower sticker creating a bookmark that matches my pages.

To finish off I also backed a few of the stickers onto card and made them into die cuts to add the my planner pockets.

I’ve really enjoyed taking my time and being more creative today. It’s not the full set up that I used to do but it’s a start and I’ve decided to plan in some set time where I can just pull all my supplies out and create - I’m determined to find my style again.
