Pocket Planner by Jodi!

Hi everyone! Happy Wednesday!!
Just the other day, I realized that I never purchased a planner for 2010 (yes...I realized this in February...you can laugh now! lol!!).

I knew I wanted a planner that was a bit fancier than the ones available in the store, so I decided to alter one!!

You can see the first picture of the planner with the super cute kitty (I felt bad covering this little sweetie up!!!). It was SUPER simple to alter my planner to be a bit more "me".

I knew I wanted to use Discover Your Wings. I just LOVE this set...it is SO elegant and yet so fun!


I first used a brayer and a Kaleidacolor ink pad and brayered a piece of Choice Snow White in these beautiful hues of blue. I then stamped the flowers in Versamark and heat embossed them with Black Embossing Powder. The butterfly was stamped, embossed and then popped up for a bit of dimension.

I LOVE the sentiment, "Pursue Happiness", which is also from Discover Your Wings. After stamping and embossing the sentiment, I added Taylor's Tiny Twinkles to each side, and then added three Taylor's Tiny Twinkles to two opposite corners.

I just LOVE how this came out and the best part...it was SO easy to do!!

Thanks SO much for stopping by!!

Recipe:
Stamps: Discover Your Wings by Taylored Expressions
Paper: Black & Choice Snow White
Ink: Versamark & Kaleidacolor
Accessories: Pocket Planner, Taylor's Tiny Twinkles, Black Embossing Powder and Foam Tape

Nice work! I have altered those inexpesnive photo albums with covers like this to use as coupon books. Why reinvent it when you can repurpose it? WOohoo!
