Calling All Planners…

(Looking for my Paper Smooches Blog Hop post? It’s the post right below this one!)

Are you a planner? Just getting into planning? I’ve got a tutorial for you.

Stop by the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L blog for a quick tutorial on making your own page markers for your planner, as well as Washi tape storage cards.

These page makers (and storage cards) are a fun way to add a pop of color (and your personality) to your planner. Plus it is a great way to use up some of the patterned papers and stickers that might (emphasis on might) be in your stash of crafting supplies.

I’d be tickled if you’d check out the post.

A Little Something Planner. A Little Something String Art.

Hi, guys!

Back again. Today’s project isn’t a card. I know… shocking. (Wink, wink!)

Today’s project is a little something planner. A little something string art. I present to you, today’s project!

I made this little sign with a couple of my planner friends in mind.

It was pretty easy to make. I created a little heart piercing pattern and temporarily adhered it to a wood panel. (You can pretty much use any wood panel for string art! As long as it can take nails, it’s good. In fact, my next string art project is going to use some reclaimed weathered fence boards. I’m so excited!)

Anyhoo, I just whacked small nails through the pattern with my $1 store hammer. True story.

And then to do the “plan” word, I used some old scrapbooking letter stickers as a template on where to add nails. I certainly could have sketched out the letters on my board, but, having a pile of unloved letter stickers, certainly has its benefits. 😉

Once I added the nails for the letters, I removed the letter stickers and tore off the heart template. And then I went to town, adding string around the nails over and over… over again.

I finished my project off by stamping a few additional words, “all the things.”

Keep in mind, I made this with a couple planner friends in mind. They are super duper active planners and totally could appreciate the “plan all the things” phrase.

I think it turned out pretty fun, and I can’t wait to make another one! See you again soon, friends.
