Our final Winter Design Team member is Lisa Spiegel! Lisa got to work with one of my favorites, today’s steal, the Pebbles Seen & Noted Collection. I just love the warm color combination and simple patterns in this collection. From red, turquoise, yellow and gray, to dots, stripes, flowers and speech bubbles – this collection has it all! Complete with library cards and pockets, journal cards, cardstock stickers and chipboard, this fun collection is perfect for any papercrafting project.

Next, I altered a new day planner for myself. With a new year, it was time to get my new calendar and make it CUTE! I found this one in the Dollar Section of my local Target:
Step 1. Take your planner out of the plastic cover and measure it.
Step 2. Trim the first piece of paper the height of the planner. Lay it down, the side you want to show down and lay the planner on top, lining up the right edge with the right edge of the planner, then wrap the paper to the front and gently fold it. Adhere it to the cover of the planner using a glue stick.
Step 3. Trim a second piece of paper to be 1/2 an inch wider than the spot you will cover and adhere it under the first piece of paper and to the cover of the planner.
Step 4. Cover the seam of the two papers with a decorative trim. I used the UPC trim from another piece of paper from the collection…love that Pebbles made one side of them completely usable! Glue it down.
Step 5. Now it’s time to embellish! I chose to use this cute journaling card, a doily, a punch from the backside of the floral paper, a chipboard speech bubble and numbers to create this for the cover. I cut the word “everyday” from my Silhouette Cameo and black cardstock. It is nice to keep the embellishments flat for your planner. Since you will be writing in it, bumpy embellishments won’t work well…layers of flat things work best!
Step 6. Place your planner back in the cover and add a binder clip to mark your place! Then step back and admire your handiwork!!
I used a Cameo cut for it…and popped a cute little journaling card with bling inside to personalize it. I added Basic Grey magnets to keep it closed…and when the recipient opens it, the whole things slides up and out! SO CUTE.
