Summer Journaling~ Week One Choosing your Journal

 

Hello! Hope everyone had a great Sunday and Mother’s Day! Here is central Texas we already have had extremely warm days and they will not stop now through October. Usually by the time mid-July through early September we are indoors in the air conditioning trying not to melt. However, I love welcoming summer through journaling! It’s a time for family, relaxing, taking vacations and really getting memories on paper. This year we are planning more staycations and looking to visit different museums, festivals and events close to home. I’m really looking forward to exploring and having new adventures. Similar to what I created at Christmas, I wanted to create a mini video series about Summer Journaling. So welcome to the first video in the Summer Journaling video series . I thought it would be fun to share some of my techniques and maybe inspire you. This series will include 6 videos to be posted on Sunday evenings, CST. In this video, I talk about past scrapbooks and journals I have used and what I plan to use this year. Let me know if you have any questions or I would love to hear how you are planning and documenting your summer!

Happy Planner Memory Keeping May 2018

 

Hello!!! Happy National Scrapbook Day, one day later! I am about 6 weeks behind in memory keeping in my Happy Planner so yesterday, laye evening I started working to get caught up. I created this video to show you my process of making a coversheet for the month of May 2018. At the beginning of each month in the Happy Planner there is a section to list your current happenings and a quote page. I like to cover the quote page with either a theme of the month or current pictures. For the month of May I created a collage of pictures to represent Mother’s Day. Here in my process video.

On the Go~ Pocket Size Traveler’s Notebook

Hello! I know…two videos in one week?! Yay! I actually wanted to show you my latest setup using a Pocket Size Traveler’s Notebook for a wallet. I always have a small notebook for jotting ideas, grocery lists and jot it down notes so I combined my wallet and my notebook into a personal size notebook.  This pretty little pocket size traveler’s notebook was actually a passport cover I purchased from Walmart last summer. I recently came across it added eyelets and elastic string and TADA it’s a  into a traveler’s notebook! I created several inserts using cardstock from past kits and I added them in. Perfect!  I also added a stretchy phone pocket to carry my driver’s license, insurance cards and debit cards. So far it’s working out great and has freed up a lot of room in my carry along purse. I also show you a quick review of my Bando planner aka my life planner.
Thanks for watching!

Documenting Daily Life in my Happy Planner~ January 2018

Hello! One of my goals for the New Year is to start blogging, I use to blog ALOT about 3-4 years ago and I really miss it. I loved posting craft projects, places I’ve visited and blogging is where I discovered my love for creating art canvases. Today I want to talk about how I plan to document / scrapbook the everyday using a large Happy Planner. I absolutely LOVE scrapbooking and document life using pictures, papers, paint and all the fun creative media. I have used the concept from Project Life to take a photo a day and sometimes it happens and sometimes not, but I’m thrilled to have January complete. Here are the layout pages:
January Introduction Page

What’s fun about the Happy Planner is it has a place for important dates, plans, and current events or what is currently happening at the beginning of each month.
Week One~ January 1-7

Surprisingly ,I didn’t take as many photos this week, I think is was due to the fact I started a new job which requires a hour commute to and from Austin and having symptoms from CEDAR fever! UGH!
Week Two~ January 8-14

We celebrated my daughter Brazos’ birthday this week and quite possibly we celebrated the entire week! This week was the start of Girl Scout Cookie Season and starting and finishing a Science Fair Project.
Week Three~ January 15-21

This was such a cold week, I used paper snowflakes punched out from a Daphne’s Diary Magazine and added twine with a sparkle snowflake to add a bit of dimension. Love that I took lots of photos this week!
Week Four~ January 22-28

This was the week I had the flu..wah! It was awful! However, my sister was looking through old photo slides for my parent’s 50th wedding anniversary and she sent me all these fun photos from when we were kids, so I added them into this weekly layout.
That’s a wrap for January. I hope to film a process video soon for documenting in my Happy Planner, so stay tuned!
