This week I have moved into my March insert from Cocoa Daisy. Thouhg a little bit sad to say goodbye to Simon for now I am excited to get a bit of spring feel! I am also excited to say that I have been chosen to be part of the Cocoa Daisy planner team! 
 
I really liked the look of the big divided cirkles last week so I decided to keep on using them this week. And my own scribbly "work" as usual. I did learn this week that writing on a moving train is hard which is why the scribbles on monday look a bit different. 
 
Monday I need to get a bunch of desk things done, among other things I am taking my son with me to the police station to get things in order for an event I am hosting next weekend. Tuesday is reveal night at Cocoa Daisy and I like to mark that out in my planner as well. I thouhght the cat peeking out of a box was a fun way to mark that out, I got him at the Londongifties etsy shop. If you drop by there use the code ANNAPR to get a 10% on all purchases of at least £15!
 
The end of the week needed a bit of fun and color so I fussy cyt these bees out of a piece of washi from Bella blvd. I secretly call them by the names of our family members. Bzz Bzzz! 
 
And my focus list/todo list is down as well. I kept the spread kind of clean this week. Mainly because we don't have much planned this far. As the week progresses I like to go in and add stickers and things I want to remember. 
 
Do you have a busy first week of March or are you also team taking it easy this week?
 
Take care!

Hi! 
I can't believe that this is my  last spread of February! What I keep closest to my heart is the birthday party we held this weekend. It was so much fun to see our child together with his friends, playing and laughing. We really made some important memories for life. 
 
As usual I am using my mini daisydori from Cocoa Daisy
 
One of the first things I do each week is mark out my work schedule. I have gone in and filled out the hours later on. I really like to have that visually in my planner. 
 
Monday was the busy day of the week and I thought it needed an important sticker. The glasses are a stamp from the February Cocoa Daisy stamp set. I managed to get a partial stamp first but I kinda like how that looks. It works and if it is not broken why fix it? In my experience fixing stuff always ends me up in an even bigger mess (and cover up stickers to prove it). 
 
The weekly todo list is simple and brings in some more of that fantastic green that has been sprinkled around in this kit. 
 
Talking about cover ups! When I had these pages set up I had a smearing accident on this page with glue. It wasn't anything major but it has been bugging me the whole month. So I  stamped out a Simon and colored him in with pencils. Did some layering with washi and stickers and the smear is a long gone memory. 
 
My son who was wth me at the time wanted to play with stamps too so I thought why not? He then gave me all of his little fussy cut treasures and one of them ended up in my planner spreads. It's one of the things I am most thankful of that my eldest shares my crafting need. It really frees up time for me to craft as he can be right there with me, doing his thing. 
 
Aslo that girl from Londongifties is so cool! I thought she was perfect for friday, I added the tgif and thought it was a fun touch. 
 
If you want to watch part of my process, there is a video coming up on my YouTube channel, Kaffekananna 
 
Hope you'll have a great week! 

Take care!

Hi! Today I will be sharing a little quick tutorial in how to hand stitch on paper. There is also going to be a video up on my YouTube channel: kaffekananna. Yay! 
 
You will need: 
  • two pieces of paper
  • cardboard 
  • crafting mat
  • thread of you choice 
  • sewing needle
  • piercing tool 
 
Start off by making holes, line the papers up and place the cardboard under it and if you are careful of your desk or table top you place a crafting mat underneath it all. 
 
If you want to you can draw a line where you want to place your holes and you can even mark out exactly where each hole goes. Be sure to use a pencil if you do so you can erase it when you are done making holes. 
 
I prefer to do this freehanded though at about 1/8 of an inch apart. I wouldn't recomend to go much closer together than this as you may end up just ripping your paper. 
 
When making your holes it is easier if you work towards you, especially if you are doing it freehanded, this way your line will be straighter than if you are working away from yourself or sideways. Just like when you are drawing straight lines. 
 
Thread your needle. I am going to go through two kinds of stitches, depending on what you are going to use your stitches for. The first stitch I feel like is a bit faster to do but the stitches at the back doesn't end up as neat as on the front, I use this for 12x12 layouts where I only want the front to look nice. The other stitch is neater on the back but takes a bit more time, this I use when I make cards for example. 
 
STITCH NUMBER ONE
Bring your needle up throuhg the second hole. Be sure to secure the end of the thread with one of your fingers before going back down in the first hole. 
 
Bring your needle back up in the third hole and then down again in the second hole. Then up in the fourth hole and down in the third. Continue in the same way until you are finished. The stitches on the back will be a bit longer than the ones in the front but when you have worked your way down you will be finnished. Secure the ends on the back with a bit of washi tape. 
 
THE SECOND STITCH
Bring your needle up in the first hole. And down in the second, up in the third and down in the fourth...
 
Repeat the process all the way to the end. 
 
And then go back to fill in the blanks, this way your front and back will be neat which is perfect if you, like here, are going to make a card. 
 
This is what your stitches will look like on both sides. If you want to you can secure your ends with a piece of washi or you can just simply leave them as is. 
 
I finished my card off with a little bit of paint, a strip of washi, a sticker and a couple of die cuts from the Cocoa Daisy planner kit. 
 
Hope this tutorial was helpful, please let me know if you have any further questions on hand sewing paper OR if you have any suggestions on other tutorials you want to see in the future! 
 
Take care!
