Flowers need time to bloom
By Creative Planning Team - Korrie-ann Peters
How perfect are the colours in the Bloom kit, I love the peach and greens together. It is definitely giving me spring feelings. The artwork is just gorgeous and I’m so tempted to add colour to the leaves on the days of the week strip.
Two of my favourite planners are my Erin Condren A5 Agenda and my bullet journal. I really enjoyed using both these last year so when I seen the Focused notebook from Erin Condren I couldn’t resist it. It has a similar layout to my A5 agenda but the look of a bullet journal and is the perfect size to pop in my handbag. And it was also my favourite shade of green.
The pages have a simple clean look to them, ready to be decorated. I have used the thin washi strips to separate each day and then layered the days of the week over them.
On a previous layout I cut the flowers in half to create two different stickers, here I have used a similar idea but put one half either side of the washi strip. The washi strip looks like it is going through the centre of the flowers but I haven’t lost any of the details of the design.
I have layered a quarter box with one of the larger flower stickers to cover up the calendar and the quote has been cut from the full box. Don’t be scared to cut your stickers so they work for you. The full box would have gone over one and half days which I didn’t want so I have just cut it close to the words and popped them at the top of the page.
How cute is penguin Joe sleeping amongst the flowers reminding me it’s the weekend so I don’t have to set my alarms haha. the black and white stickers are really effective along with the full coloured ones and look like I have stamped them in place, they would actually make a lovely stamp for my collection.
The space at the bottom of the page is separated into two sections, I have used the stars to cover the little check boxes, there was only the 5 stars but the flowers were a perfect size for the top and bottom box. This would be a great bit to add your meal plans too with having the 7 boxes.
Look how pretty is all together, ready for the week ahead.
I would love to see how you have used the same kit, you can share yours with us over on the Elliebeth community Facebook page.
Coming Next week:
Angelique Patnett - Trackers Galore!
One thing that always interests me when I look at other people’s planner spreads are trackers. Habit trackers, mood trackers, finance trackers, fitness trackers, every planner boy and babe are tracking something.
But to track or not to track, that is the first question followed closely by, what do I track.
This year I decided to be honest with myself when I committed one ENTIRE Archer & Olive notebook to trackers. I wanted to have a better historical record of what I was going to track all in one place instead of having to hunt down planners from previous years for the data.
I thought about the things that personally interested me, why I would track them, and set off.
I have never done a rainbow spread or a “shop my stash” spread so here goes.
