Cathy’s Planner Spread


Hey everyone! If you’re like me, you’re wondering where the summer went? I used July’s kits (all 4) to create this layout in my Get To Work Book planner.

White alphas are my absolute favorite. Take a highlighter or brush pen and you can color your alphas any way you like!

This week was super hectic for me. Between my yoga sessions and house hunting, it was very rare to leave any white spaces in my spread.

The colors this month remind of a preppy feel but totally fun. I incorporated light pinks in it just to keep it refreshing. I’m pretty feminine so the pinks and yellows brought that out a bit.

Layer, layer, layer. I do it in my scrapbook layouts and it looks even cuter and dainty in a smaller format such as a planner!

I doodle a lot! So the boxing of my schedule is common in my planner.

Don’t you just love this months color themes? So on your next project, pull out “planner friendly” items like I did and see what you can do your kit!!!

Planner Kit Paper and Layouts


When it comes to planning, I am for the most part a minimalist. I like to keep my pages sweet and simple with little fanfare. This is great and all, but I am often left with a pretty pile of planning supplies and I really hate to see them go to waste.

What I have been doing, after I am finished with a month of planning, is use the leftovers to make a quick and easy scrapbook layout like the one I created for today’s post using the June Planner Kit:

Each month I ooh and ahh over the 6×8 sheets of exclusive patterned paper that are included in the planner kit, yet I tend to not use a lot of paper in my planner. This is okay though, because the patterned papers are perfect to create a layout with. 

Even though the size of the paper is smaller than the traditional 12×12 patterned paper, you still have plenty to work with. For this layout, I went with a layered design and even had enough paper to cut a title out of!

Since Gossamer Blue debuted it’s exclusive Planner Kit, I have looked forward to seeing what great patterns the designers come up with. With June’s Kit, I really fell for the nautical theme as well as the bright pops of red that are found throughout.

I also love how beautifully coordinated the papers, stickers, and embellishments are and really appreciate how easy they have made it for me to put together a planner spread or layout. 

Happy Monday everyone!

How Do You Plan for the Week?


Hello everyone!!  Kymona here from Kreative Kymona here to ask you how do you plan for the week? 

Do you use a paper planner or do you prefer to use your phone?  Do you decorate your planner or do you just write down what you need to do?

Either way we all need to plan in order to stay current with all of the task we have these days.

Today I’m going to show you how I plan for the week using this month’s Planner Kit. 

Take a look at my spread:

My planner is blank so its a open canvas for me to create the way that I want to.  I love creating colorful pages.  It makes me want to open up my planner everyday.  The planner kit this month is amazing. All of the pieces coordinate so well.

I used the number stickers to add the dates to my blank planner.   Once those numbers are down, I work date by date so that I don’t miss anything.  I write in the days work then I add the embellishments.

The stickers allow my pages to pop! They make the pages fun. They make you want to read and check off things that were actually completed.  

I try my best to not make mistakes in my planner since I use a pen from time to time but there are times when I do make mistakes.  I fix it the best way I can and keep going.  That’s what makes it a really planner to me.  Its not meant to be perfect!!

So how do you plan for the week?  Please let me know below what you think.

I hope I’ve inspired you to create colorful planner spreads. 

Thank for stopping by!
