I love mixing things up! This month, when I started pulling out elements for my Traveler’s Notebook spread, I noticed that the Pink Paislee 17 paper had colors that reminded me of last month’s kits. So, I grabbed that and started finding coordinating papers and elements that would work well with my theme.
I loved the purple and dark pink, so the Love Card from last month’s Life’s Pages kit was a great addition. Plus, it served as the perfect title for my spread about my mother in law’s birthday celebration. She was truly surrounded by those that loved her!
Next, I found the plaid and black and white polka dot papers from last month’s Planner kit. I love how they coordinated with the Pink Paislee paper. I cut strips of those and added them to the opposite page.
Finally, I began pulling embellishments from the March Main kit . The stickers and washi tape looked great with the papers and cards I had assembled. I framed the photo with some and added my journaling along the bottom of the page.
Pulling together this spread was so easy and the way that the February and March kits worked together made it that much easier. Try looking through past kits and see what you can come up with!
Today I am showing you how I use the kit’s cardstock in my monthly view. Normally I use cardstock as dividers, bookmarks, cards among other items – however, I am trying to use it more creatively. That way I can use every aspect of the kit. This month I decided to use my cardstock to decorate the monthly view in my Erin Condren Neutral Life Planner.
This kit makes it easy to coordinate, not only do all the papers have a similar color scheme but you can use the both sides of the same paper for perfect pairings! I start all my monthly views by deciding If I want to cover the header or not, then I move on to the empty days from the month before/after. I love using the washi strips for banners and quote cards to fill empty space. Below I have quick video showing my full set up.
How are you using your cardstock this month? I’d love to see! Tag me on instagram at @gossamerblue and @RosePaperParty!
Hello! I’ve been having so much fun decorating my planner with the Gossamer Blue kits. My regular planner has a weekly horizontal spread but I’ve been seeing a lot of inspiring weekly vertical planner spreads lately, so I decided to give that a try.
I’m using a Traveler’s Notebook weekly planner that I got from a local supplier, The Stationer Extraordinaire, here in the Philippines. The weekly side is where I’ll jot down my daily plans and the dotted right side will be for any journaling and memory keeping.
Here’s where the March Gossamer Blue Planner kit comes in handy. I love that it has everything I need to prettify my spread…stickers, washi, journaling cards, patterned paper! I was drawn to the oranges and the greys so I chose those colors for my color scheme.
Planner stickers are great at helping you decorate really quick. I especially loved these enamel shape stickers designed by Allison Pennington because I often write in bullets. The “@“ stickers were perfect for indicating addresses.
I attached one of the kit’s journaling cards which had a beautiful quote on it to give me a quick dose of inspiration and motivation.
Thank you and enjoy decorating your planner with this month’s planner kit.
