Carpe Diem Planners

Hello!

Ever since I took a planner class at The Stamp & Scrapbook Expo earlier this month, I have been rethinking my planner lineup. I really miss using an A5 system. At times, I feel like it’s too much, but maybe for the rest of fall and the holiday season, I think I’m going to try it again. I love my Carpe Diem Coral binder. It really looks good with anything I put in it, and I like how much it can handle. So, look for a new setup post coming soon!

In the meantime, in the class we got to just play and make a mock-up monthly and weekly spread. How cute did these turn out?!Carpe Diem Monthly Spread | JM CreatesCarpe Diem Monthly Spread | JM CreatesCarpe Diem Weekly Spread | JM CreatesDo you change your planner system a couple times a year, monthly, or never?

Personal Planner Setup for Fall feat. The Planner Society

Hello! Happy Wednesday!

Today I am sharing my Webster’s Pages Walnut Personal Planner setup with you. I setup this gorgeous planner with the September kit from The Planner Society. I love, love, love this kit for fall. And, I have been crazy over this walnut planner too.  🙂Walnut Webster's Pages Planner | JM CreatesHere’s how my planner looks like when you open it. I like the mix of gold and rose gold.

Happy Planner Weekly Spreads | October 16-22

Hello! Happy Monday! It’s finally starting to feel like fall around here…yay!

This week in my Classic Happy Planner includes some goodies from The Planner Society September kit. I like to have the current TPS kit in at least one weekly spread. There is always so much included- so it’s not difficult! I love the mustard gold color in this month’s kit. One of my new favorite fall colors.  🙂

On a side note, I picked up a couple of these Carpe Diem Planner Decals at the Scrapbook Expo- and I used one of them on my HP deluxe cover. I love these little hearts!

And, as for my Mini HP, I put a few different things together to make a french-inspired spread. I used a macaroon washi (also from the Scrap Expo) as my inspiration, and layered some Dear Lizzy puffy stickers that I’ve been hoarding, which seem french-like to me. I think it turned out cute!

2017 Scrapbook Expo Review | Akron, OH

Hello!

Last weekend, I attended the Akron, OH Stamp & Scrapbook Expo (for the third year in a row!!). I just wanted to share my haul with you all…

My haul literally took up half of my bed. Soooo much goodness. There were less than 25 vendors, but the ones that were there were pretty current with their selection. Definitely more “planner” related items than I remember last year- and I even took a planner class. Yay!2017 Akron, OH Stamp & Scrapbook Expo | JM CreatesMy favorite purchases were the crystal pens and the washi. I gotta have all the washi!2017 Akron, OH Stamp & Scrapbook Expo | JM Creates

Some of my haul from my classes… they hook you up with the latest & greatest products! I wish I would have taken a couple more classes…

Memories… I can’t wait until next year’s show!

Have you ever attended one of the Stamp & Scrapbook Expos?

Happy Planner Weekly Spreads | October 9-15

Hello! It’s the beginning of another week in beautiful October! I spent the weekend at the Stamp & Scrapbook Expo here in town, and had a great time. I can’t wait to share my haul (coming Wednesday!). I’m still coming back to earth after a couple of days worth of shopping & learning…

Here are my weekly Happy Planner spreads for the week ahead.

First up is my Classic size Happy Planner. I’ve been in an orange kind of mood lately, so I put a bunch of orange-themed stickers together, and I love it!Orange Inspired Happy Planner Spread | JM CreatesOrange Inspired Happy Planner Spread | JM CreatesNext up is my Mini HP. I made a simple rose gold themed spread this week. I don’t think I’ll ever tire of rose gold!  🙂Rose Gold Inspired Mini Happy Planner Spread | JM CreatesI found the rose gold crystal pen shown here at the Expo. Before the show begins of Friday, the vendors come out of the showroom and hand out coupons and show off some of their product. When I saw the folks from Tall Mouse flashing this pen around, yep, that was the first booth I went to! A rose gold crystal pen? Perfection. And, it writes sooo smoothly. Rose Gold Inspired Mini Happy Planner Spread | JM CreatesThanks for stopping by! Have a great week!

Happy Planner Weekly Spreads | October 2-8

Hello! This post is a couple days late, but I still wanted to share my weekly spreads with you all today!

First up is my Classic HP. This is one of my new favorite spreads! I have a lot of fun things planned for this week, including my mom’s birthday, a road trip, and the Scrapbook Expo, so I don’t need a lot of space to write lists, etc. I just went to town with the embellishments (which I’ve been hoarding for a long time!) and made this week pretty.Happy Planner Weekly Spread | JM CreatesHappy Planner Weekly Spread | JM CreatesHappy Planner Weekly Spread | JM Creates

The Planner Society September Kit

Hello!! I’m here today to share the gorgeousness that is the September kit from The Planner Society! Oh my goodness, I love the patterns and the warm fall tones of this kit. Every month I think that that kit is my absolute favorite, and then the next one comes along, and blows me away. I love the unique items that you can’t find anywhere else. The Planner Society Sept. 2017 Kit | JM Creates

The gold bow acetate paper is my favorite! I may save it for December… Hello Christmas time!

I love, love, love the rose gold and pink bow washi. I have been looking to add some bow washi to my collection, and here it is- in my favorite colors! Love. And that pen. I can’t handle how lovely it is. I would subscribe to a pen-only subscription box if I could find one- anyone else crazy about pens?The Planner Society Sept 2017 Kit | JM CreatesI love the tiny album. I am putting all my TPS stickers in it for storage. I will be putting together those cute pen holder clips very soon as well…

Mum Fest 2017

Hello! Today I wanted to share a few photos from the annual Barberton, OH Mum Festival at Lake Anna from this past weekend. I went with my mom, and we always look forward to this event every fall. I love being surrounded by flowers, and have such fond memories of Lake Anna from when I was a kid. The only thing bad was that the temperatures were above 90 degrees this weekend! Oh, it was a scorcher out there!!! Enjoy the photos!

Happy Planner Weekly Spreads | September 25 – October 1

Hello! Happy last week of September. Another month that quickly flew by! I am really excited for October though. This time of year is always the busiest (and most fun!) for me. Lots of cool things to do! I’ll be sure to share them with you too!

Now on to the planner spreads!

This week in my Classic Happy Planner is all about the black and gold. I love how this turned out! The gold scalloped washi is one of my faves! It is from the Teresa Collins collection that was at JoAnn earlier this year. I also added a few decorative feather stickers (from Hobby Lobby) and I’m crazy about them. I wanted this spread to be really inspirational to keep me going throughout the week.
