July Release Sneak peak #1

GOOD MORNING my creative friends AND welcome to our first day of sneak peeks for our HUGE July release!
I have TONS to show you today, so get comfy, grab your cup of Joe & enjoy ALL that you are about to see here! ;)  You can see BOTH of my projects it their entirety in my video below!
Okay, I don't know about you, but I have been SOOO INSPIRED by all of these amazing "Filofax's" out there today, so I decided to create my "own version" of it!;)  I thought ALL of my new products would be PERFECT for this!  At first I really wanted to create this by using a chipboard back & cover, but then I came across this planner from Target! Yep, there is a special section w/products you can purchase & "12 meals are provided for children + families across America"! With that said, I immediately thought that I would use this as my cover & replace all the pages inside w/my very own! I wanted to show my support & that is why I kept the "Feed 12" on the cover & just decorated it w/some canvas stickers!

When you first open my Filofax, you will see this adorable "Hipster Kitty" stamp. It is SOOO ME & you KNOW I will have my coffee in hand while I am journaling & making notes in my new best friend (my filofax)! ;) 

I wanted to create a divider in between each category, so I stamped & heat embossed (using clear Ranger embossing powder) a "Pretty" background stamp onto some vellum paper from Papertrey inc! (my FAVORITE vellum paper out there today!)

Here I made some handmade file folders for each day of the week! I thought it would be fun to make folders to make any notes OR things to do & even my grocery list! ;)  (I am SOOO HAPPY for myself for making this)!!  The days of the week stamp come from the new "Tab Notes"!  They stamp perfectly onto our NEW "Stitched Tab Dies".

Here is another CUTE divider to separate the days of the week from my calendars!

I just LOVE how this came out! I explain in my video how I messed up the calendars & how I fixed it w/o doing them all over! :)

After each month I made a pocket for important notes/dates/birthdays...etc....

You can also see in my video the CUTE little dry erase board I found at my Office Depot! 

These blank pages, clear pouches are the only thing I kept in here!  Since this is a 6 monther, I thought I would add a "holiday" tab for my Christmas lists! When this year is over, then I can switch it out w/something else!

I put one of the canvas stickers from the CTMH "My Reflections Claire" paper pack on the spine of the book to dress it up a little! 

Back of book! That sticker is also from the CTMH "My Reflections Claire" paper pack.  I am SOOO HAPPY to start using my new handmade (my version) of my very own 'filofax'! ;) I LOVE IT! 

 Here is my "Weight Loss Journey" Project Life style! ;)
 I LOVE LOVE LOVE the 8x8 pages WAY BETTER than the 12x12! That is just MY opinion only. It "may" be because I LOVE to do 8x8 layouts & not 12x12? maybe? less work? lol.... Just  incase you are wondering what "130"'s actually my "Goal Weight" which I WILL get to one day! ;) 

All the pattern paper, cardstock & canvas stickers I used are all from the CTMH "My Reflections Claire" paper pack!
You can see how I used the new 4x6 die here! I used the 2 stickers on it from the same paper collection.

Doesn't that "Week 1" look AWESOME?  I just LOVE my new dies! ;)

I already made my pages for the rest of the month! All I have to do is add my journaling & my picture OR whatever I want!;)  This is an AWESOME way to use up all of your favorite 12x12 paper pads/packs!

I am not supplying you w/a list of supplies I used this time! You will understand WHY once you read about HOW you can win our giveaway BELOW! ;)

Here is my video for you today!

  26. Oh my goodness, Miss Emma. I am just speechless. I love it all! My most favorite thing about all your products is how the older sets always work with the newer sets. I love that weight loss journal title and how you used the "Here's the Story" from the Life is Good Stamp set along with "your goal" number using the new dies. That Filofax is fabulous and I'm totally going to do one, too. My order is placed and I can't wait to get my new products. Thanks for all the hard work you put into this release. It's well worth the wait.
