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.

Happy Monday, GB fans and friends!

Today we are so excited to bring our guest designer feature back. Each month we will be featuring a domestic and an international crafter who has caught our eye.

We will showcase them here so that you can be inspired by their creativity and talent!

Up first, Heather Kell. Heather has been rocking her Happy Planner™ on Instagram, and that’s where we noticed her (link below). She’s super organized AND super creative, and that happens to be our favorite combination!

A bit about Heather in her own words:

I’m Heather Kell and I live in DFW, Texas. During the day I’m an Instructional Technology Specialist at an elementary school, but at night I love to come home and dive into my paper world. I love crafting with paper, and I am addicted to decorative planning. I have found that a pretty but practical planner keeps my life organized yet fun! I love sharing what I create with others, so be sure you’re following me on my social media accounts so that you don’t miss a thing!

I am so excited to be a guest designer this month for Gossamer Blue! I loved using their March Planner Kit in my Happy Planner™!

The green, coral, and orange combo was to die for. I loved using the paper to accent important “to dos” for the week.

I used my tape runner to turn the die cuts into stickers.

I loved the washi strips for extra accents!

I think my favorite part of the kit was the enamel dots. They add the perfect touch to my planner!

Hey Gossamer Blue fans! I am absolutely floored at the color palette for March’s Planner kit! I was so eager and excited I wanted to show you THREE layouts in my planner. This kit and inspiration is good for anyone who plans on a daily, weekly or monthly basis!

Daily: this is a page in my Hustle Planner. I use my daily pages as a running to-do list of things I need to get done THAT DAY.

I took my heart paper then cut it down a strip and put it in my margin to add a little of the design in my layout without overwhelming it.

Color those cute social media stickers too with a highlighter or a pastel marker. I used my Tombow brush here!

Don’t you love those inspirational/to-do journal cards? Great as a daily reminder!

I’m not scared to use enamel dots as my bullet points. You shouldn’t either!

And let’s take a peek inside my weekly planner layout in my Classic Planner:

Again, layer some of the patterned paper in your margins or footer.

Those wooden WEEKEND pennants! LOVE them.

I wish I could have an endless supply of the coffee wooden veneers too. They just speak to me!

Again, add some color using pastel markers. You be surprised how a pop of color in your layout brings your planner to life!

Lastly, a monthly layout in the same Classic Planner:

Those rectangle stickers have days of the weeks on them. I used them here as my headers.

I also re-used the square stickers borders and cut them out the sheet to use as labels!
