Cool Boys Mini Album | Jillibean Soup

I was asked to create a mini album for Jillibean Soup for the Creativation show... Well as you might know, I don't make minis!  So I really set to thinking about how to do this.

I decided to feature the shaker cards and use them as the basis for my album, I LOVE how this turned out!  Hope you enjoy and you can click the link to grab your own 2Cool4School collection.

March Planner FlipThrough and Giveaway! Cocoa Daisy

Today I am sharing a personal look at my Happy Planner.  You might have seen me decorate my Happy Planner, but I thought I'd take you for a closer look at its actual job in my planner family.  I've included a YouTube video at the end which walks you through all the planners I have used this month and a giveaway!

I started using a Happy Planner after scoffing at the whole planner move; I couldn't figure out why anyone would waste time to decorate a planner that was to help you stay on track!  All of a sudden, I didn't have time to scrapbook and I needed to get creative and so I began decorating my Happy Planner and I was hooked, that was back in April of 2016!

Each month I decorate my Happy Planner and then I keep my HP beside my bed and I use it to document my thoughts, hopes/dreams, everyday moments, gratitude, whatever is striking my heart at that time.  I love that I have 2 years of my thoughts recorded and it has really served to help me process many of my life's events.

Here are some of my March pages all prepped and ready for the pen!  This one was pages from the Standard Cocoa Daisy TN that I pasted into my HP...

This was a super fun page as I actually ran my HP pages through my printer to print the Cocoa Daisy printables (A5) onto the page!

So what does it look like when the page meets the pen?  
On this page I added in a 4x6 card as further inspiration.

This month I actually added another step to my memory keeping with the HP pocket protectors 
(both the classical and mini fit).

Thanks for joining me today; I hope you have enjoyed this up close and personal look in my planner!  Now on to my March video and giveaway, hope to see you there!

Think Happy Thoughts | Cocoa Daisy

Welcome friends, today I am sharing a layout mainly composed of Project Life cards!  
I love to layer these cards to tell my story, I looked for designs, sayings, and color and then I began to embellish.  I chose to keep my design to the right side of the page perched on my large title with varying colors/sizes.  This left me plenty of room for sharing my thoughts as my title suggests and hence the thought bubbles used throughout the page.

Created with the March Cocoa Daisy kit,

Dream Big | Jillibean Soup

I created this star background months ago with a Jillibean Soup cut file, and it sat, and sat... and sat!
I had these pictures of my daughter and these Broadway stars and so I quickly grabbed the cut file and began to get to work for this layout.

I used the Bowl of Dreams collection from Jillibean Soup, which you can purchase here!
