Hello, everyone!  I have a busy March, so I had to get a jump on my planning.  I used the St Patrick’s Day Collection Simple Set, the Seasons Sticker Tablet and Sn@p Alphas to pretty up my planner.

I used the decorative papers from the Simple Set as washi down the center edges, alphas to highlight the big events and used stickers from the Seasons Sticker Tablets

After I had a sense of my commitments next month, I filled out my Monthly overview.  I used this page to remind me of all the great things happening in my life and to set my goals for the month.

This is my last blog post being a creative team member—I had had a wonderful year making projects on the Carpe Diem Team.  Thank you all for joining me on this journey and for all your comments and support along the way.  Last, thank you to Simple Stories for this wonderful opportunity.  I was proud to show off all the great products you released over the last year, keep up the great work!


Hello everyone and happy February!   I am here today to show you how I used the Romance line to bring a little love to my planner.  As usual, I started off making a simple dashboard using the Hello Love  12 x 12 paper and elements from the 12 x 12 Cardstock Sticker Sheet.

I used the Forever Washi Tape down the center of the pages for my weekly layout and started building up the layers from there.  I was in love with the bunting sticker on the 12 x 12 cardstock sticker sheet so I cut it apart and used it across both pages.  I stuck down some larger elements from the Bits and Pieces pack for important events during the week and also my flight information for a weekend trip.

I utilized so many of the functional stickers from the 4x6 stickers to create layers on the page and call attention to the various appointments and events I had during the week.

Since I was travelling over the weekend I didn’t have too much to put in my planner (sometimes I like to travel without a set schedule) I wrote in the few events my daughter would attend while I was away and filled the remaining space with more stickers from the 12 x 12 Sticker sheet.


Hi everyone, its Meredy here getting ready for the New Year.  I know, I know it is not yet Christmas, but never too early to start planning, right?  I hope you are all having a wonderful holiday season and are looking forward to the New Year.  I have a lot to accomplish in January so I started a new planner and have been adding to it here and there over the last few weeks.

I made a quick set up for the New Year using the “2018 “ Simple Set

I haven’t done too much in the planner, but I did spend some time creating a monthly overview.  I have to be honest, I usually skip this page, but I was surprised how helpful it was to spend some time thinking about the coming month.

I put my theme for 2018 at the top (I am attempting so say “NO” more often) and a few birthdays which was a nice reminder that I better get shopping!

The bottom portion has a space for important dates and my goals for the month. 

This page didn’t take long at all, but I already feel ready for next month.  Wishing you all a Healthy and Happy New Year!
