Hello! 
Today I am up on the Cocoa Daisy blog sharing my May setup. And I thouhgt I would share 6 tips and tricks I in my dori! There is also a video up on my YouTube channel on my setting up of May. 
 
1. PHOTO HACK 
Something I like to include each month is a photo of my kids. And I use one of the 3x4 cards from the Cocoa Daisy planner add on kit to back it up, I use a simple paper clip to secure them there and I haved used this trick for a really long time and the photos really do sit securly there. 
 
2. INK TEST
One of the first things I did this month was to make a little sheet with ink tests. It is superhandy to have to help decide what inks to use. Also I can see if there is any bleed throug which is really nice to know!  
 
3. DECORATIVE TRAY IS PRACTICAL TRAY
I like to keep my things on cute little trays and such. And it is not only for display purposes! Having the die cuts on a tray makes it so much easier to find what I want to use and having them out in the open makes me more keen to use them. Plus it does look cute and cute is fun, right? 
 
4. MEMOPAD
Usually I order photos online after the month is finished. So I have created a little booklet of a couple of the pages from the notepad from the planner kit. Each page is divided into two parts on the front and back and each part is used for one day. This way I can jot down a couple of things I want to remember when the month is over. Easy and superhandy! 
 
5. TABS 
Tabs, tabs TABS! I use almost all of my tabs included in the kit, that way it is easy to navigate throug the pages. I also use a couple of paperclips. That is one of my favorite things, when decorative and practical meets. Love it! 
 
6. THE QUESTION ABOUT PREPLANS
I have gotten a couple of questions about my preplanning and for that I use a midori monthly insert. I have the blank insert so I can chose just how many months I want to use and when. Something I have discovered is that the day stickers found in the planner add on fits perfectly on the top of  these pages. The clip  by the way is attatched to the front cover as I figured that the previous month alread are over and done with. 
 
BONUS Quick plan with me! 
This time I went with a couple of the arrows from the decorative sticker sheet in the planner kit. 
 
I used the weekend banner found in the planner add on and one of the moths just above it and washi underneath. That is the basic decoration for the week, there will be a bit more especially as there are sneaks coming up on monday for the July  planner kit. I love to mark that out as I always am superexcited about those! 
 
Take care!

Hello and happy Easter! 
Today I am up on the Cocoa Daisy blog with my first ever entry! It feels sooooooo weird and fun! In the entry I am using an envelope I have made and down below is a step by step instruction on how to do it. There is also a video showing it. 
 
You will need 
  • Two pieces of cardstock
  • Paper trimmer
  • Scoring and cutting blade
  • Permanent adhesives
Start  by cutting one of the papers to 12x11
 
Turn the paper and use the scoring blade to make a crease at 5,75', this side is going to be the inside of the envelope. Turn the paper and make a crease at 6'. Turn it again at make a crease at 6,25' 
 
This is what the paper will look like. 
 
Switch to the cutting blade. Cut off 1' on both sides, starting at the upper crease. The upper half is going to be the front of the envelope and the bottom half is going to be the back. 
 
Turn the paper and cut off the paper strips along the upper crease. 
 
This is what the paper should look like by now.
 
Use the scoring blade to make a crease 1' from the edge on the upper half sides. Turn the paper and make a crease 0,75' from the edge and turn the paper again and make another crease at 0,5' from the edge. Repeat the process on the other side of the envelope. 
 
Cut out a 4x9' piece from you second paper. Make a crease at the long side 1' from the edge. 
 
 
Mark out the middle of the paper and place it so that you'll make a cut from the middle to the crease. 
 
Repeat the process on the other side of the paper. 
 
Both of the pieces for your envelope are now done! 
Bend the paper at the creases, first bend it inwards at the first crease, turn the paper and bend, turn and bend one last time, repeat the process on all of the creasings. cut the corners off at the bottom, this will hinder the paper from overlapping making it hard to glue together. 
 
Bend the crease on the closing flap and put a good amount of glue on it.The side with glue is going to be the side that shows on the outside.
 
Glue the closing flap to the upper half  of the envelope. 
 
Put glue on both sides of the bottom half of the inside of the envelope. 
 
Align the sides and glue the envelope together. 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Be sure to drop by the Cocoa Daisy blog  to see how I used the envelope on my travels. 
 
 
Take care!

Hello planner peeps! 
 
I have been on the road this weekend, or the tracks to be more precise. So fun to be out on adventures and a train really gives you the opportunity to have a bit of planner fun while you travel. Later this month I will write a couple of tips and tricks when traveling. One thing I will try to do for that is figure out how to do one of those fantastic envelopes that the Happie Scrappie kits comes packed in. It is perfect to stuff all of your things in! 
 
This was the first time my youngest and I didn't bed share. So weird! And very very nice to be able to enjoy a quite and lovely breakfast at the hotel I stayed at. With some planning. I even got to drink my coffee hot! 
 
This is how the spread I created on the train turned out. I am absolutly loving the colors of the april Cocoa Daisy kits! The accent color this week turned out to be pink, I think it made the entire spread look a little more playful! 
 
One of my favorites on the functional sticker sheet are the big cirkles. The tiny polkadots on them is such a fun little twist, that kind of detail really sits well with me! 
 
For my focus list this week I used a die cut from one of the planner kits. it is glued down so the washi strips at the top are only there for decorative purposes. That yellow washi from the planner 102 class kit really makes my heart flutter! 
 
Next weekend already has a bit of plans. Can't believe that my tiny tiny baby already turns 2!! He's almost as old as his big brother was when he himself was born. So strange! The little rabbit is from a freebie I got from Londongifties. Still wishing that they'll turn up in her shop! The weekend banner really accentuated the playful feel of the feel of the spread. The "dream big girl" sticker is placed on two strips of skinny washi from Simple stories. How cute is that to mark out a birthday disco for an awsome six year old. I really do hope she dares to dream big! 
 
That's it for my weekly spread this week! There's setup video for April up on my YouTube channel, do check it out if you want to see how I have set things up this month. 
 
What's your plans for the week?
