August Planning Party

planning party, eventsAmberleigh AdoffComment

I can't believe it's already August!  Only a few more weeks till I head back to school, so to prepare . . . I took a look at my planner and made it pretty so that I can look at these next weeks with joy.

Here is how it went:

Of course we needed washi tape, I found this handy organizer from Michaels.

This month we focused on celebrating Art as well as fun things going on in our last summer month such as a meteor shower and new movies and books coming out.

I found these awesome planner stickers with quotes and useful labels at Michaels, so fun!

I am happy with my color scheme for August, it's bright and fun!

Crafting a Birthday Brunch

diy projects, events, giftsAmberleigh AdoffComment

So my girl friend's thirtieth birthday was coming up and my friends thought it would be nice to surprise her with a birthday brunch.  We were going to try out a new restaurant and everyone was assigned something to take care of such as flowers, dessert, balloons, etc.  I was in charge of bringing a sign or banner and some decorations as I tend to be the more craftier one.  So with a few days to prepare something, this is what I came up with.

1. Easy chalkboard sign . . . I have this small square chalkboard sign that I bought at Joann's that I use for all types of occasions.  I just marked up a cute sign using a chalkboard marker and used some washi tape to add a little more detail and color to the sign.  The triangles I cut out of scrapbooking paper using this banner punch I just bought from Amazon.

2.  I created this cute banner for the table as I guessed we wouldn't have a large space to hang something.  I used the same banner punch and scrapbooking paper with some string.  To create the base I bought these cute little pots and used floral styrofoam glued in the bottom and skewers to hang the banner.

3.  I of course needed a wrapped gift that was just as crafty as the decor so I wrapped her gift in kraft paper and cut different floral shapes out of cardstock and glued it down.  This was pretty quick and surprisingly easy.

4. The last touch . . . I found this cute little party hats at target and had to get them!  They added a little playfulness to the table.

Just a few little projects made our brunch fun and beautiful. 

March Planning Party

So, with a few new faces we got together to nerd out about planning and decorating with stickers and washi.

Here are just a few photos to share!

Okay, so maybe I go a little overboard!

Here are some awesome designs using some of Blue Sky's adorable planners . . .

I love this month view my coworker created with her Sugar Paper planner!  The spring banner is so cute.

This month, we talked about planning personal growth goals and daily affirmations.  I really liked this image from Pieces in progress:

I also found some Irish quotes to include our planners in the spirit of St. Patty's Day.  Here is one of my favorites.

May the road rise to meet you
May the wind be always at your back
May the sun shine warm upon your face
And rains fall soft upon your fields
And until we meet again
May god hold you in the hollow of his hand.

Here are some fun days to add to your month as well.

Of course we needed fun stickers and washi too!

Happy Planning and may this month bring you luck!

February Planning Party

As January comes to an end I thought I would share some photos from our monthly planning party.  I gathered my planning friends together to take a look at February and decorate for next month.  With fun washi tape, stamps, and colorful pens we got crafty with our planning.  Check it out . . .

Cute stickers, stamps, and washi tape from Michaels.

We discussed how important it is to plan fun things and time for yourself.  I found some cute calendars to help us plan such as:

Organization Calendar

Love Yourself Challenge

Kindness Challenge

Some fun dates to add to your calendar:
