Planner Time | Monika Pestrová

Bom Dia
Hello everyone! How are you today? It's been a few weeks since kids here in the Czech Republic went to school again ... But not for a long time, because summer holiday has started a couple days ago (ups!) ... And before I go on our first holiday this year I want to share with you one of my newest Planner pages I made using different bits and pieces from the BOM DIA collection and from the Documenter Kit. You know that’s one of the things I love about the Planner. You can easily use little scraps and stripes. 

There was only a few photos this week so I used Project Life card and a 3”x4” photo to cover not only one but two columns on the week spread - each one on one of the pages. That gives you more space for additional embelishing or whatever you decide to use. 

Sometimes I struggle wheather to use dimensional embellishment in my planner - such as chipboards or enamel dots. Because the more you use of these the bigger your Planner gets. But this time I decided to use them. I stamped a sentiment “HELLO TODAY” on the striped paper and added two little enamel dots. TIP: With this beautiful and colorful striped paper you can write your journaling between the stripes too. 

I love Project Life cards with some picture or phrase placed straight in the middle of the card. One can easily cut out the middle part which can be used for the Planner too (like here the amphersand and the ice cream). 

TIP: Use triangle paper shapes that fit into one of the daily spread boxes and use black or coloured ink to stamp repeated pattern in the rest of the box. You can use more paper leftovers this way.

So that’s my Planner Spread for today’s post. As I’m going on a holiday next week I might prepare some TN for the next time for you. Have a great summer.

Hi Crafty Friends,

The new collection Bom Dia is just perfect for creating vacation Layouts. And what do you do if you have a window seat on the plane ... YES ... take pictures.

At Pinterest I saw older layouts with the airplane windows and I just had to lift them.
I created the windows with my silhouette. If you are interested in the cutfile, you can download it here for the silhouette: Cutfile Flugzeugfenster

with the small triangle stamp I stamped and cut out a lot of pennants on the striped designer paper. I glued the beautiful pennant chain onto a Bakers Twine.

each of the windows got a little quote and because the bottom of my layout was so empty I added a little detail with stickers.

and of course a title had to be added. And voila my layout is ready.

I used the following materials:

Album Rainbow | Isa

Hello everyone!!

I hope everyone is doing great. It's Isa today on the blog and I want to show you a new project that I made with the Bom Dia Collection, that is the new collection by Studio Forty. Today's project is a mini album rainbow themed. 

 For this project, I have combined mainly papers from the collection that are similar to the colors of the rainbow and the Project Life cards from the collection. What I have done in all the project is to combine the elements and the pages with the colors of the rainbow of the first card that is the cover of the mini album. 

On the first pages I have used red and pink tones of the elements. I have used also clear stickers and chipboard stickers to decorate the pages. 

I also added some flip pages so the project has more volume and surprise elements on the inside. Also, on the following pages, when combining more colors, I have also used the set stamps Splashes from the Bom Dia collection to help making the transition of colors of the papers. 

The dotted patterned paper has been very useful to make the back of the pages more clean and have it less patterned because sometimes the excess of patterns can make a project a bit less combined. It is one of my favourite papers from the collection and I think it is the perfect complement to the pages. 

 I have also cut details from other Project Life cards to decorate the pages of the album.

And I added some Project Life cards that also have rainbow colors that combine perfectly well to add final touches to the project.

All the pages are joined with a white ring. Simple, easy and beautiful.

I hope you liked the project and that you create rainbow colored projects because they are very beautiful! See you soon with new inspirations! Take care! Love, Isa

Creative mini-álbum with Marivi


Hello again, I hope everyone is well.
Today I show you a mini-album that I have created with the beautiful news of Studio Forty

It is a very simple album, but full of details.

The structure is made with a craft paper, which I have decorated with the "AZULEJOS" paper, I have lined the spine with a small strip of paper and with another piece I have created a border imitating a lace or ribbon.

I have sewn the border and I have also sewn sequins and pasted various chipboard decorations and with a stamp it is watercolor paper and then painted with watercolor the paper boat.

A little hidden, to add texture a stamped detail, with the seal AZULEJOS.

The interior is two papers glued to the structure and folded.
The part that is free is shorter so that the page below is visible and I have rounded the corners.

I have used several cards from the Bom Dia! Collection as an ornament and various small chipboard details and some prints and then painted with watercolor.

 Another paper that I have used for the other page is Keepsakes.The stickers Keepsakes I have pasted on paper and then I have cut them out.

I have also used several color phrases stickers set Bom Dia!

I love the "Journey" set and then play with the watercolors.

 I have used beach and sea photos that combine wonderfully with the papers and decorations, which are ideal for the summer.

On each page I have included the transparent stickers "Best Day" and "Take a walk"

I hope you like it, inspire you and help with your projects.
See you soon!

Memory Planning / Sonja

Happy Planner
Dear all, 
I (Sonja) am happy to be back with my latest project on the ST40 Blog today.
How do you use your Memory Planner?
Since last year I changed my monthly Project Life and did my album only on a monthyl basis. For the weekly memories I used my Memory Planner and it was so easy to fill it up week by week.

You only have to print the pictutres once a week and the formaty makes it easy to complete a full week within half an hour.
And I still do this project this year and I am very happy that I am Up to date.

For my last week I used some stamps from the current collection BOM DIA. Which is perfect for the summer time and the memory keeping for the summer days even you do not travel this year.

First I used the small stamp set AZULEJOS. I decided to use different stamp pads and I wonder how good the match with the colours from the collection.

The clear stamps from the stamp sets JOURNEY and SUNKISSED I used instead embellishemnts. I love to use black ink on white paper. Black is my favorite calour.

On the left side of my Classic Planner I used green and blue colours. You will also find in the collection some washi stripes which are so easy to use.

On the right page I only used yellow and red.

I hope you like my inspiration and give a try on the Memory Planning. Have I good time and stay health. Sonja
