Can you believe we are almost half way through September already!!! Where has this year gone??? 

It has been almost a year since I applied to be part of the EllieBeth Designs Creative Planning Team and what an amazing team it is to be part of! 

I thought it would be nice to have a look back over the past 11 months and recreate one of my favourite pages from last year in my Hobonichi weeks, where I used the Winter is Here kit:

 

 

Instead of the Hobonichi I am using the Daisy Weeks from Cocoa Daisy which is slightly shorter than the Hobonichi and has a slightly different layout. I am able to adapt it with the Mini Weeks kit and the only alteration needed was the days of the week strip, which I just used my scissors to separate the days, and the washi strip I’ve sliced in half to give me enough strips to separate the days of the week. 

In my original page I had started with my watercolours and added a little splatter so taking the orange and blue from the kit I started with the splattering. This is one of my favourite techniques and I’ve kinda missed it.

 

 

I didn’t want to cover up the colour splashes that are already on the page design so I popped the large washi strip at the top left and bottom right. 

 

 

As I’ve mentioned above I have sliced the washi strips and used them to separate my days of the week, added my days and checklist flags and used a few of the stickers from the deco sheet to decorate my page. 

The Koala-ty kit is perfect for this moment in time when everyone needs to stay safe and you realise how important it is to have that quality time with your family and friends. 

If this year has taught us anything it is that time can go so fast and we all need to be grateful for who and what we have in our lives. 

So just like the koala here give your loved one a great big hug and stay safe xx
