Plan with me || Peacock

February 27th – March 5th

Hey loves! Today’s plan with me is going to be a bit different because I’ve change my inserts back to the Erin Condren style ones so trying to get use to the layout again. The main kit for this week is a Peacock kit that was sent to me by Mockeri on etsy.

I started my placing washi on the bottom of the pages and using date covers by VintageRoseStudios and the number dots from YourWorldOfColour then used what I could of the kit. Finally I used all off my functional stickers.

I really like how this turned out and happy going back to this style of inserts, when I was using the horizontal inserts I found everything was to squashed together. I do promise that next week will look better though because I have already started decorating it.

Etsy feature #7 (LJDesignsNE)

*Disclaimer: This product was sent to me for free in exchange for this post but all opinions and views are my own.

Hey loves! I have an etsy feature to show you some inserts that were sent to me. I will try my best as I haven’t featured inserts on my blog so not sure how to describe them so bear with me.

The shop that sent me these are LJDesignsNE which is ran by a lovely lady called Laura Jones. Her shop sells a few different insert type as well as charms, dashboards/dividers, notebooks and page markers. She sent to two weeks worth of the WO2P, if you order these yourself they are £5.25 of 3 months worth and shipping is £1.20 and 3-5 business days. The paper feels quite thick and of good quality but the ink can be seen through the pages but a normal ballpoint pen can’t so for me that’s not a problem. Now for a planner girl this is bad but I don’t own a sharpie or any pen like that so I can’t tell you weather the ink bleeds through but for me personal with the quality of the paper and because I only use a normal pen these inserts would be great for me and would consider ordering them when I need some.

    February Etsy Orders pt.1

    Hey loves! I do have more stuff coming but I really wanted to show you the stickers I already received so I’ve decided to do this haul in 2 parts. So in this half I will show you the stickers I’ve got from YourWorldOfColour and ThoseSillyStars and in the second part will be stickers from ThePlumpPlanner, some from Oodlemadoodles and clips from LadyBugOnAPug.

    So lets start with YourWorldOfColour, as you all now I’m part of the design team so I could help but buy some stickers to show you all. I purchased functional sheets, a monthly kit and a couple of weekly kits, there is also another weekly kit which was free for getting the most sale with my discount code last month.

    These are the functional sheets.

    20170218_22160220170218_221620

    • Nail polish icons
    • Blog computers
    • Baths
    • Half boxes
    • Facial icons
    • Planner layout
    • Coffee cups
    • Week day stickers

    Most of these sheets I bought 2 of because I knew I would use them alot.

    Next is the Macaroons monthly kit.

    20170218_221640

    I use a Carpe Diem and all the monthly kits are to Erin Condren or Happy Planner measurements so I gave Carlyann the measurements for my planner and she sized the kit for me so if you also have a Carpe Diem if you asked in the note section when ordering I’m sure Carlyann will do this size for you.

    Weekly kits. Beauty and the beast, Doughnut and Tropical garden (free)

    Plan with me || Hearts Of Love

    Hey loves! The kit I’m using for this week is the Hearts of Love kit from ThoseSillyStars which Laura sent me for free in November, you can see my post on that here. I thought this kit would look lovely for the week after Valentines.

    I started my laying down washi and as much as the kit as I needed, my favourite sheet from the kit is the sampler kit because the icon are amazing. The sampler sheet and all the other sheets can be bought separately. I also used my favourite date covers from YourWorldOf Colour.

    Plan with me || Tatty Teddy

    February 13th-19th

    Hey loves! This weeks plan with me is a bit different to all my other ones because I haven’t used a kit. My main decorative pieces are from a magazine I bought sometime last year. I love Tatty Teddy and the hearts with it I thought would be perfect for this week of Valentines.

    So I started by laying down my Tatty Teddy bits, left pieces from old kits, date covers from YourWorldOfColour and weekend banner from WhimsicalFlamingosCo.

    Then I lay down all my functional stickers.

    Plan with me || Winter Fairies

    February 6th-12th

    Hey loves! Welcome back for another plan with me this time using a kit set to me by PinkBonBons on etsy. I did a feature on this kit here if you would like to go check that out. I used this kit because the fairies are so cute and the colours still make it look wintery.

    So to start off I use most of the sticker from the kit as well as date cover from YourWorldOfColour, habit trackers from PetalPrintsInk, weekend banner frrom WhimsicalFlamingosCo and a bill reminder from AnaviasRainbow.

    20170203_132019

    Then I started adding my functional stickers in. Sorry from the glare on Wednesday, I marked my partners birthday with one of them shiny stickers.
