Planning & Planner Stickers

Iv never really been one to plan, I would always start the year with the intention of planning, so I would buy a dairy and use it for about month or less than never touch it again! Since moving to a new town, starting a new job and having more responsibilities iv now had to be more organised. So iv bought a planner and iv used it for nearly 2 months now!!

The planner trend has really hit of and it never really was something I was interested in, but now I plan I see why people buy so many planner stickers! For me I don’t find planning fun so having stickers and embellishments makes me want to open my planner and plan the next few weeks!

A few weeks ago I headed over to Etsy  to have a look at the Planner stickers. People really go all out on decorative planning but for me I wanted my planner to be simple. I ordered my sticker sheets from The library Designs, I only ordered 3 sheets, I could have gone crazy!!

If your after a simple way of making your planner pretty then definitely take a look at her shop, the stickers are good quality and don’t cost a small fortune!

If you plan and use planner sticker ‘s please let me know what Etsy stores you use!

September Studio Calico Kit

Hi Guys!! Today I’m finally shearing the contents of the lost River Documenter kit by studio Calico. This month iv wanted to use the kit a little bit before reviewing.


This months kit was the perfect mix of different embellishes, cards and stamps. The main colours incorporated in the kit are perfect, I love the dark greens and earthy tones, they are the perfect transition my album needed to start looking a little bit more autumnal


This is my half-finished layout using the lost River kit, it still needs a bit of work but I’m loving the look of this page.

My favourite product from this kit is the stamp set! Iv only just started to use stamps in my album so my collection isn’t big, these are the perfect addition to anyones stash, big or small. They read ~ Road Trip! Day Trip! this is exactly why I ALWAYS CARRY A CAMERA, Oh darling let’s be adventurers and The Great outdoors! I’m definitely going to be getting lot of use out of these Stamps!

“August” Studio Calico

Hi guys this August post is very late but it is really worth the wait. studio Calico has four monthly subscription kit’s and they all have the same monthly theme. I’ve subscribed to the the Documenter Kit which is perfect for Project life and other forms of documenting.

The August kits theme is Young At Heart, each kit arrives in a clear zip case, which is perfect for keeping the kit together and also holding other embellishments.

I’ve loved using this kit this month, the muted colours on the project life cards fit perfectly in my 2016 album, all the embellishments are all unique and not just the same old things you can buy at your local craft store. This subscription really has become my favourite!

Septembers kit looks like another great one, the theme is Lost River; perfect as fall is just around the corner!

Why not try this kit for free and just pay $5 for shipping! Simply use promo code SCKIT5 or SCKIT5INT!
