Scrapbook layouts - remember those?


The Elizabeth Craft Designs team was challenged with the theme of "Scrapbook" this month and my mind immediately went to 12 x 12. I freaked out a little since I haven't created an official "scrapbook layout" in years. But after some clarification, I learned we could create whatever size we wanted. Naturally, I chose to create a layout in my ECD planner. Talk about speedy scrapbooking! 

This year, I will have THREE planners going at a time. My datebook planner for appointments and reminders, my memory-keeping planner for the year's events, and a special Nature Notebook planner which is what I'm sharing today. I used the Sidekick sized planner in Espresso and mixed both the Sidekick and Planner Essentials dies. This planner will be reserved for all those beautiful photos of our surroundings here in Greenville mostly, but I'll also be including any travel or hiking photos as well.

The ECD design team is sharing their "scrapbook" projects on their blog today, so I hope you take a moment to check them out here.

I'll provide the links to the products I used below. And, of course, a video will surely be coming down the road when I get a few more pages complete.

Finally! My 2021 Planner in Progress


It's a new year, so that means a new 2021 Planner! I've featured over on the Elizabeth Craft Designs blog today sharing a quick tutorial on how I created my planner dashboard page and January divider using their wonderful dies and stamps, so I hope you get a chance to check it out here

My planner this year will be created using Graphic 45's sweet "Woodland Friends" collection and Patterns & Solids. I'm working on the video tutorial for my entire planner now and will share soon on my YouTube channel and, of course, here on my blog. It's a little later than I had hoped (usually my planner is done in early December) but it's been a busy few months. It's coming, I promise!

In case you missed it, be sure to check out my previous post where I share how to print my planner pages I've created specifically for the ECD Planner. For just a few dollars in my Etsy shop, you can get the digital download of the weekly pages, the mini monthly calendars, and a holidays page.

I can't wait to finish my planner and share it with you! Thanks for popping in today. Below you'll find a list of products with links to buy your own. (Remember, I get a teeny-tiny commission if you buy using my links. Thank you in advance.)
