November Journaling Cards

PlanningPosted by Gaetana Tuesday, October 30 2018 06:45AM
It's amazing to me how fast this year went by and we're already days away from November and Scorpio season is here. Happy birthday to all my fellow Scorpios.
For this month's journaling cards I was completely stumped on what do as the decorative one since I already did leaves and pumpkin motifs. Then it hit me to use a piece of one our new dolls. This doll is wearing her uggs and if you live in the northeast then you already know the uggs have already started being worn in October. But are seen and worn more in November since the temps always happen to take a nose dive. Like always we have our signature journaling card and like always I used my scalloped edge scissors to give it a decorative edge. So enough chit chat and onto the download.

October Journaling Cards

PlanningPosted by Gaetana Friday, September 28 2018 06:47AM
Well hello there October. September went by with a breeze.Since I did the pumpkin theme last year and the leaf theme last month. I opted to do breast cancer awareness.One being it's an amazing cause to bring awareness to and two it is unique and you won't see it anywhere. Plus it kind of close to my families hearts since my older sister is a doctor in Sweden trying to find the cure to breast cancer alongside other doctor's in her department. So with that all being said this month journaling cards is for every survivor of this disease, everyone currently fighting this disease and supporter of the fight of this disease.Like always I had to add my own touch with infamous scalloped scissors. You can cut them straight or even round the edges.It's totally up to you.

Halloween Bucket List

PlanningPosted by Gaetana Tuesday, September 25 2018 07:49AM
I asked you Dolls in our Facebook Group and the votes are in. Since all our other bucket lists were such a hit why not do a Halloween one. I know. Everyone isn't into Halloween but this is for those that are. Like always I decorated the white space using leftover stickers from a Willowfields Hocus Pocus set. Now my bucket list is ready for Halloween.

September Journaling Cards

PlanningPosted by Gaetana Friday, August 31 2018 05:59AM

And just like that summer is basically over. It went entirely too fast don't you think. With September only days away we should start getting used to the changing of the leaves and the cooler temps. With that being said, here is September Journaling Cards.
Like always our signature journaling card with no decoration. And the other features a great fall leaves motif in the colors of changing leaves. A lil' something for everyone. You know I can't resist my scalloped edge.

Inside My Travel Planner

PlanningPosted by Gaetana Tuesday, August 21 2018 01:51PM
I'm not 24 hours back on US soil and I wish I was back on vacay in Sweden visiting my sister. I haven't been on any vacation in 4 years and being a business owner if you don't work you don't make money. So since my older sister and her partner purchased their first home together it was the perfect time to take a break and chill. As a planner girl, I had to figure out how to condense my planners into one.So this is how my travel planner came into play.

These clear planner has been all the rage all over the planner community since the summer started. I wanted the clear one but ran across this clear rainbow pvc planner and knew that was the one. I got mine on Amazon in the A6 size 5.12 x 7.48. I read the reviews before purchasing and everyone said that it wasn't a A6 but personal size which was good for me because all I use is either personal size or pocket. You can find it here.

Another trend in the planner community has been creating these collage or trend boards (what we call them in the fashion industry). I just took my favorite pink images off of Pinterest and created a collage with the Canva app. Saved and open on Photoshop then resized and print. Easy peasy. I created the page tabs using stickers and putting them on card stock. Then running through my laminator. I also included a cute lip paper clip and our new Planner Gonna Plan Doll Digital Download available on our website.

Next I have my monthly calendar from Annie Plans Printables.
After that I included the pages from my weekly insert for the time I was going to be away. I left them blank and filled them out day by day. (Inserts from Annie Plans Printables)
I could of actually did daily pages because each day was so jammed packed with different areas and sites we visited.

The next page came from Annie Plans Printables Travel Inserts. This one is to track your expenses during your trip. I created a cute page marker from a cover of a note book and put my August Journaling Card on top held by a brass clip.
And here is the front of that book cover. Too cute!
I then included the monthly view from the Travel Insert Set. Why I don't know. I thought I was going to use it to write down what we did everyday but I would need so much more space then these boxes. I also marked this page with a page marker I made from a business card.The opposite side of the page marker features our personalize Planner Gonna Plan Doll which will available back on our website this week.
The next couple of pages are apart of that travel insert set and include a packing list and countdown. Which were super helpful and useful.
These next two pages are perfect for daily planning. Which I might use sometime today to put some of the memorabilia I have from my trip.
I loved how the set also included some grid pages.
I found this quote on Pinterest and knew it would make the perfect dashboard for my next section.
The backside of that insert features a background from Pinterest, a sticker from Me and My Big Ideas Sticker Book and our Summertime Doll Die Cut.
Then I had my Vacation Packaging List Printable which is available here on my blog. Adored with our Taste of Honey Paper Clip Charm available on our website.
Then I have some of my favorite grid paper from Target Dollar Spot notebooks.
Then some lined paper from that same notebook set from Target.
Plus some random Notes pages from a old planner ages ago that I found in my desk while I was setting up my planner.
I made another page market from notebook covers to hold some post it notes and my pen loop that I made from stretch trimming. The pen loop hold one of my favorite pens. This one being a simple gel pen from Dollar Tree.And the backside of that page marker.
I think found this random envelope in my desk and I said it would make the perfect catchall to hold random bits. I punched some holes in it and was good to go.
When I left for my trip I put some whole boxes and two washi tape cards with some thin washi on it. During my trip I include random business cards from artists we came across when we visited this old fashion factory which was converted into artist shops and my ticket from visiting the Swedish Royal Castle.
After that I have some bits from some other sites we visited during our trip.Finally I have the dashboard that came with the planner. I laminated it and put it in the back to prevent the pages in the front from bending.
Lastly, I took my original dashboard I created for this planner and moved it to the back because the back needed something.

I highly recommend taking a planner with you even if you don't reach for it once during your trip. It can at least be a catch all for every little scraps of paper you decide to keep during your trip and once everything slows down one day you can fill in the blanks. I did that several times during my trip. Even in the evenings before I went to bed because after a while the days were meshing together.

I truly had an enjoyable trip and I'm sad it's over. Now it's back to the hustle and bustle. I would love to hear what you keep in your travel planner.

August Journaling Cards

PlanningPosted by Gaetana Friday, July 27 2018 05:47AM
July literally came and went.How or why, I can't even tell you but poof here is August beating at our backs. Which makes me super sad because that means summer is almost over which sucks for someone who loves the heat. Nevertheless, here is the journaling cards for August.
Like always I created my signature journaling card but the second features a cute palm leaf motif in shades of deep green and blue.Very tropical. Very August. Like always I used my decorative scissors to make it for more pretty. You can leave them square or round the edges after you cut them out.I've seen some people decorate them with die cuts. Super cute. The possibilities are endless.

Vacation Packing List Printable

PlanningPosted by Gaetana Tuesday, July 10 2018 10:48AM
With literally a month before my trip I decided it's time to finally create a packaging list. Because the last thing I need is to leave something at home and then have to purchase it later. So if you're taking a vacay or even a weekend trip soon you'll definitely going to love this Vacation Packing List Printable.
It features everyone one would possibly need for any vacation . I also included a notes section to include any items that you may need that aren't on the list. Like always I decorated with tons of travel stickers to make it fun. You can even laminate it which I think I will do at a later date.

July Journaling Cards

PlanningPosted by Gaetana Friday, June 29 2018 06:51AM
I feel like I say this every month about how fast the month went but it really did fly by. With this month, since we'll be celebrating our country independence in the coming days it was the main theme behind this month's journaling cards. The third journaling card actually matches the freebies that will be available in our Facebook Group on Sunday.
I'm so happy with how they turned out. Like always we have our signature journaling card, then we have our independence day themed one and lastly we have our ice cream theme one. Like always I added a scallop edge to mine. There is definitely something for everyone this month.
