Creative Planning

Happy Friday, friends! This is Jules of Paper Gems by Jules trying something new! The other day I was struggling creatively. I opted to clean my craft room... and that took a while. 🤦🏻‍♀️ But when I was done... I wanted to use something I bought that I haven't yet. And there it was... a planner. Lord knows I love how creative people get with planners, but I'd have to plan 2032 in order to have it done in time. But then I thought, what if you just made your planner into a journal of sorts. Stamp and color what you're feeling or what you're thinking... so here it is.



This is the first page and I chose "Grace of Letting Go." This happened to be the stamp I used on a card that Angela & Whitney noticed one day and reposted. It was a glorious feeling. But at the time, the card was made for a friend going through a rough patch in life. The other day, I was with a friend going through a rather big change in her life and there were so many mixed feelings. This sentiment... well, it fit perfectly.



I stamped the girl on. the right side and figured I'd keep the design on the whole right side. Because I used a light grey ink, coloring it gave it the no-line coloring look. Next, I created a mask and stenciled leaves all around her in reds, oranges and yellows. I found some wood washi tape and placed under her to hide the end of the stamp. But this was only. up to 2/3rds of the page and I wanted it to be the whole right side.



So I die cut some leaves and colored them with the same inks. To cover the edge. of them, I added a rope bow right over it. Last, I stamped the sentiment on the upper corner. This was my first time, but I absolutely love this fall themed planner page. I'd love to know if you use planners and what your secret is to keep it up!


Until next time... Happy Crafting!
