Lil' old Me

West Midlands, United Kingdom
I am a full-time working mum who works shifts with a son Richard aged 21 and a daughter Emma aged 18. I have been married to my lovely Husband Paul for 23 years. My passion in life, besides my family, is papercrafting, especially cardmaking, although I "dabble" in scrapbooking. I was introduced to Jewellery making in 2012 and found another addiction :) I have been cardmaking since 2006. I am also a bit of a tigger freak!

Planner pages w/c 3rd August


As I'm "home alone" this weekend I thought I'd start next week's pages.

Went to turquoise/red colour combo as it's my daughter's birthday on Thursday so bright party colours.

Stamps Studio L2E (except banner which was a freebie from magazine ages ago)

Planner page w/c 27 Jul 15


These are my decorated pages for this week.

I decided to go for taupe/red colours and love the neutral scheme very much.

This week's Planner decorating


I have upgraded my Planner for a Me and My Big Ideas Happy Planner but I prefer using a filofax so I punched the pages and added to my A5 Filofax.

This is my first week decorating and I love it - so much room!!!!

Top section for work, middle sections for "To Do's" and bottom for meal planning.

Planner pages for next week


This is my planner decorating for next week.  I decided on a red and blue theme with washi tape and inks. (Pleased except for the smudge at the bottom where I leaned on the page before ink had dried - grrrr)

Inks Vrilliant chalk ink

I'm back!!!!!!

It's been soooo long since I posted and although I have been creating I keep forgetting to take picture before giving them to the recipients - doh!

I have recently found another craft which I think is going to be another addiction - Planner Decorating.

I have been using Filofax for years but just as a usual diary - shifts for work, birthdays, holidays etc, but now I have found a couple of groups on FB and I have purchased a few planner stamps and chalk inks and also using "Too Kind" from Stampin' Up! stamps using Wisteria Wonder and Wild Wasabi Inks this is what I did.


I will be doing more of these every week so will post more pictures.
