~* Weekly Layout in my Happy Planner using Pink and Main Stamps *~

Aloha friends!

Here is a project I created as a Designer for Auntie Dayna's Cards and Things. 

I created my weekly layout in my Happy Planner using the Pink and Main stamps sets called Planning Work, Planner Peekers, and Planner Tabs.  I used Archival Ink in Jet Black and Soramame inks. 


If you like any of these stamps, email Auntie Dayna at auntiedayna808@yahoo.com.

Much aloha, 
Steph :)

~* Unicorns and Rainbows Weekly Spread in my Midori Traveler's Notebook *~

Aloha friends!

Here is another project I did as a Designer for Auntie Dayna's Cards and Things.  

I used Pink and Main's Planner Tabs and Planner Peekers along with Amy Tangerine's exclusive stamp sets.  The inks that I used include Archival Ink in Jet Black and Soramame inks and watercolor paints. I love mixing different medias in my Midori Traveler's Notebook.  This insert is 018.  I also used some washi by Illustrated Faith.

Who doesn't like rainbow shave ice ;)?  


Thanks for stopping by!

~* Bujo Planning in my Midori Traveler's Notebook *~

Aloha friends!

Here is a project I did as a Designer for Auntie Dayna's Cards and Things. 

I seriously got these stamps today and could not wait to play with them.  

I created a bullet journal, bujo, in my Midori Traveler's Notebook Insert 005 using the Pink and Main stamps sets called Planning Work, Planner Peekers, and Planner Tabs.  I used Archival Ink in Jet Black and Soramame inks.  I also used watercolor paints.

~* Aloha Planner Party and Traveler's Notebook Workshop in Hawaii *~

Aloha Friends!

I've started many blog posts, but have not had a chance to complete them.  If you are interested in my daily crafty happenings and more, check out my IG handle at @swtalohagurl :)


The Aloha Planner Party and Traveler's Notebook Workshop took place on Saturday, July 30, 2016, from 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm for the Planner Party and from 4:30 pm to 6 pm for the Workshop.  The event was at the Ward Dave and Buster's and it was hosted by Florence Antonette, livelifeandcreate on IG.

In preparation for the event, I created these two spreads in my Moleskine notebook in my Kiwi Dori.  The first spread was created using the Hello Lovely collection by Cocoa Vanilla Studio.  Isn't the collection so pretty?  I used the papers, stickers, and ephemera from the collection.  


The second spread was created using Amy Tangerine's collections.  I used a mix of several collections.  Loved using the ephemera, stickers, acetate pieces that I cut from the 12x12, washi tapes, and more.  I also used some Maggie Holmes washi tape, which I love, love, love :)!  



I enjoyed taking photos with my friends in the photo booth and talking stories with my old and new friends at the Planner Party.

I created this two page spread at the workshop.  We were given a bunch of goodies and I decided to just document the day.  I used some Traveler's Factory stamps that Florence had out as well as these cute Hawaii stickers that Posh Pieces passed out.  Loved the Jillie Bean postcard paper so much!  I need to find more :)!  (I transferred my Moleskine into my mylkshoppe leather sweetdori.)



Here is my first spread, which I had my friends sign.  Loved meeting some new friends at the planner party.  We had a lot of fun crafting together and chatting. 


Here is the second spread.  I had Florence sign it and I added Instax photos of the goodies we received for the Traveler's Notebook Workshop and a Instax photo of me and Florence.


I had a wonderful time crafting with my friends.  Crafty therapy is definitely good for the soul :)!

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!
*hugs* and Much aloha,
Steph :)

~* Creative Journal - Family Fun Day *~

Aloha!

Today is National Scrapbooking Day :)!  We had a fun family day today. I wanted to do a creative journal spread in my Moleskine journal.  Here it is...I used a brochure, business card, and part of the instructions for one of the craft projects we worked on.  I watercolored the instructions to add some color since it was in black and white.  I took a lot of photos and will create more spreads when I have a chance to print them out :).


Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!
Much aloha, 
Steph :)

~* Sakuralala and Amy Tangerine Better Together Workshop - April 2, 2016 *~

Aloha!

Here is a photo taken from the Amy Tangerine + Sakuralala Better Together Workshop on Saturday, April 2, 2016.


In eager anticipation of the Workshop, I created a Creative Journal two-page spread.  This is my second Amy Tangerine Workshop and I had a blast!  I loved using designer papers, stickers, ephemera, etc. from Amy's collections.


The Workshop was held at the Neil Blaisdell Center.  This is a photo taken from the parking structure.


Amy Tan and a couple of my buddies signed the spread that I made prior to the class.  Love this!


I created two more Creative Journaling spreads documenting the Workshop.  I used the leftovers from the class - Amy's Better Together Collection.  I only completed two of the three 12x12 layouts in class and I did a little in my traveller's notebook.  I decided that I wanted to use the rest of the bits and pieces to document the fun I had with Amy and my friends.  


The second one used the header from the class handout and my parking receipt.  I always make a photo copy of my receipt since they fade with heat and light.


Thanks so much for stopping by and have a wonderful day!
*hugs* and Much aloha,
Steph :)

~* In My Horatio Printing Planner *~

Aloha Friends!
I really love the size of my Horatio Printing Planner that I purchased through my Faith Box.  It's compact and the pages are thick.  I love the prompts and the layout as well.
Here are two entries in my planner.  The first one is my Top 3 Dreams.  I used an assortment of washi tape and cute stickers.  I also have some faux calligraphy and lettering.
The 2nd one is my Month on 2 pages using my Valentine's Day Kit from The Planner Society/Scarlet Lime.  I added some other floral washi tape and some cardstock stickers.
Thanks for stopping by and have a lovely day!
*hugs* and Much aloha, 
Steph :)

~* Goals, Goals, Goals *~

Aloha!
Sharing some goal-setting pages in my journals and planners.  I'm loving my creative outlets...journaling is such a stress reliever and an all around calming thing when you don't have much "me time".  
I found two great planners, Horatio Planner by Horatio Printing and The Purposeful Planner by Cori Clark, that help focus your thoughts.  You don't have to be religious to use them m, but they do have some bible verses.  I hope they help me focus on the things I want to accomplish and help me be a better person.
