Lemons

This week is Lemons! Of course it goes great with how this week started off too, but we won’t go into deals on that!  I love the lemons my personal email has “Lemon” in it, so of course I had to do a spread with lemons.  It’s more suited for a summertime theme so I will be doing a similar one during summer again. Super easy to make I usually don’t use stamps I’m just not a stamp person. My ink did bleed through so next week you will see a little of that. Overall I like it.

What is your favorite all time spread you have done before?

Cleaning today

I haven’t posted lately I’ve been spring cleaning. Visiting family and doing OTHER things than videos and updates. I have 3 MUST DO TODAY items every morning on a list.  Just in case I don’t get the other 40 items listed done, I will if all else blows up get 3 major TO DO’s done.  This meathod has worked wonders for me. I keep a blank book journal and I just LIST things. TONS of things that need done or made on pages and pages.  Then when I have a minute I look at my list and pick an item to do.  Of course I get the first 3 MAJOR Items for that day done first. Love how this works keeps me on goal. I’ll have to take a picture of it.

What was my 3 major goals today….

  1. Clean up and Organize Living Room/Dinning Room area!
  2. Menu Plan and Order the groceries online (costs me $4.95 HOWEVER it saves me a lot of money I don’t pick up random things NOT on my list in the grocery store) Only downside I have is, it has to be paid via credit/debit card, so if you are on the cash envelope system it makes it difficult.
  3. Finish my Craft Project Binder (has been in my chore book for 1 month now! Needs to get DONE so that I can SEE what craft projects need to be done. From quilts, scrapbooking, photo items, layouts, shoots, digital designs, sticker making, organizing, crafting, planner, and much much more….. Should be a big binder and I will go over it after working through the trial period so about 3 months and I’ll do a video review of my Project Binder and chore book.

So.. with that being said I will leave you all with a cute picture of just 2 of the 7 cats we have, the two pictured are rescues.

Looking into the Studio…

We bought our “Forever Home” in Oct of 2017 on a golf course in Elizabethtown, KY.  My creative place is just now taking shape as I’m unpacking boxes still.  It’s been a long journey to get here and will take several more months ahead to unpack and organize my craft space.  I will also be listing items for sale as I unpack my studio.  If you want to see what I’m selling please follow The Vintage Mint on Facebook, I will be listing items on the page as I go through boxes.

I’m excited to get everything in it’s spot so I can create!  I do a little of everything, that’s why I just say the Jack of all trades.  I think knitting is the only craft I haven’t tried yet.

Below is the links to find me on Social Media, join in the fun and the fails. <– because there will be fails. So lets laugh together and create together.

Have Fun and don’t forget to Follow me!

Wonder Woman all the WAY….

I’ve been wanting to do this layout ever since I saw the cute Wonder Woman stickers. I grabbed my MAMBI Big planner punch and 3 matching cardstocks.  Punched 2 of each color and an extra one. (blue with white dots, red, and a shimmer gold cardstock)

You all know my style by now; I do two boarder washi tapes 10mm and this time a 12mm inside boarder. Washi tape used -Ms. Sparkle & Co. 9 pk Washi Tapes-Super Hero Bundle that I bought at JoAnns $14.99. Then four 5mm washi tapes most from the Super Hero Bundle, because I split my last box into two so I chart my spending in one and my daily menu in the other.

I used two different types of Wonder Woman logo stickers that I found at Hobby Lobby in the Super Hero Section of Stickers (this section is all logo and branded) and then also two sheets of the wonder woman stickers. -from the paper studio Stick-a-bilities “Super Hero Girl Foil Stickers- from Hobby Lobby.)

I did use some of my light blue and matching red MAMBI planner stickers also from one of the MAMBI sticker books. *You can find wonder woman charms and OTHER items all throughout Hobby Lobby, jewelry section, super heroes wall hanging section, Fabric section, etc.

First time doing a tassel for my planner, since I can now use them. HOW? I bought the Big Gold Happy Planner Cover. Then added a HUGE gold paper clip to it and now I can add tassels and dangles to my planner! I used red, blue dot, and gold ribbons with yellow twine to make my tassel.

I didn’t show but I also made two Wonder Woman paper clip toppers too.  Over all I love how quick and easy this layout was and how stinking cute it is.  I hope to repeat this layout somewhere else before the year is out just because it’s so cute, and I do have a few stickers left over.

Valentine’s Planner Layout

Using Hobby Lobby sticker sheet and coordinating washi tapes and MAMBI (Me and My Big Ideas) Big planner stickers.

When I saw these stickers at Hobby Lobby I didn’t buy them the first four times, because I really didn’t think I could use them with the BIG Happy Planner.  The size seemed to suggest it would be perfect for the mini planner.  The more I thought about that sheet of stickers the more I knew I wanted to FIT it into my Valentines week planner pages.  I finally broke down and bought them, and I’m so glad I did.  The layout is even better than what I imagined.  So I combined my Hobby Lobby themed stickers with my BIG MAMBI stickers to finish this layout.  As always I used 2 of my favorite matching washi tape a 12mm wide and a 10mm wide for the bottom boarder and the sides. Then I dove in with 4 matching colors of the 5mm wide washi tapes.  Over all I’m extremely please with how well it turned out.  Shows you how you can use those happy planner mini stickers or classic stickers in the Big planner style.

P.S. I made the Account Balance stickers, because I combined my Budget planner with my daily Happy Planner.  I wasn’t pleased this week with the Account Balance stickers so I will revert back to my just 4 slots and one being total spending for that day.  (Apparently I shouldn’t see my balances or I will SPEND them, LOL)
