Plan with Me–August Month at a Glance

KP August 2

Hello and welcome back!

How do you organize your month at a glance?  Do you decorate?  Do you just fill in the necessary appointments?  Do you skip the monthly and strictly use the daily?  These are all questions I get asked or have seen asked.  Here I will tell you how I use a month at a glance.

My planner is the second book most important to me.  It keeps my tasks and life organized.  I personally use it as just that.

So here I wrote down my important dates then decorated around it.  I love using light colored stamps to decorate because then, if I need to write over it, I can do so and it wouldn’t be hard to read.

The Kelly Purkey Shop stamps I used here were:
Stay Cool-Sprinkles, Triangles, Dots
Under the Weather-Doctor

I also used these products:

Scraptistic Club Washi Stickers
Mommy Lhey Pineapple die cut 

What I love about my month at a glance is that I can turn to this page and see what’s happening at a glance.  I can see when I am most busy and when I can make more room.  All while making it beautiful (most of the time).

Thanks for stopping by today.  Be CREATIVE and stay motivated.  Have a super day!!


Plan with Me–Week 26

KP June 4

Hello again Friends!  I hope you are all well!  Another month has gone by and I have another layout to show you.  Keeping my planner fun and functional are some ways that keep me motivated to use my planner.  But since summer has gotten the best of me, my planner has been (a little bit) neglected.  I’m just really enjoying my kids and the summer sun.  Who’s with me on that?

Well, what I did for week twenty six was, I used Felicity Jane Chloe paper to add borders and circle punched 7 pieces of light decorative paper.  Then I stamped each day of the week on it using my Kelly Purkey My Day stamp set.  I used black and white striped washi stickers from Felicity Jane and Scraptastic Club stickers.  Then I added my trusty washi tape to decorate and section off my days.  And that was about it.

I love how you can really create and try anything in your planner because it’s all a creative process and most importantly, it’s your style.  I hope you enjoyed this my friends.  Until next time, happy planning and stamping!


Plan with Me featuring Kelly Purkey April Stamps

KP April

Hello Hello!!

I’m sure you have seen the awesome Kelly Purkey April Stamps.  Maybe you’ve even purchased a few sets and need a some ideas on how to use them.  Well I can help with that.  Since creative planning is one of my favorite things to do, I did it again using these awesome stamps.

I created a very simple layout using washi tape, cardstock, Scraptastic Club stickers, and of course, Kelly stamps.  I started with the eyelashes from the Megababe Set and “Let’s stay in bed” from the Good Morning Set.  I then played around with stickers and did some layering above the stamps.  I also used cardstock to make a bottom border.  I love how visually appealing borders can be.


I decided to add a stock card from the Good Morning April Kit, rounded the corners, and hole punched it so I could add it to my page.  I thought it went great with the “Let’s stay in bed” theme.

Then I added some washi along the left bottom page and used the heart stamp also from the Megababe Set to add some color on that page.  And that’s it.  A little can go a long way with stamps.  I hope you enjoyed my process.

Happy Planning and Stamping!

Hello my beautiful friends!!  As most of you may know that I love creative planning and paper crafting so when I was invited to guest design for Gossamer Blue, I couldn’t pass up the offer.  I showcased how I used their January kits and am so grateful to have been given that oppurtunity.  I got to work with some amazing products as well as some planner specific supplies.  Check out Gossamer Blue’s website here to see more projects I made.
