I just wanted a quick smooch and this has turned into a ...
The three gals hosting the unplanner have lots of great ideas and I was game to try just about all of them but I can barely do the work of one! They are also going for unique and I'm settling for personalized....
In trying to personalize my calendar I have lost sight of simple.
By the time I figure out spread sheets, sizing for google suggestions and blah, blah, blah ....
Not to mention fast declines in ink levels... oye!
So with a time limit of 3 hours...
More info for my learning curve.
I had cut up the first month divider per instructions but I actually like the originals so I will not be doing all that.
I divided most every thing up from the kit and put it in monthly order. The first six months each have a theme colour ready.
I like chalky pastels better than brights so I added more white to the title page and fussy cut some of my theme cardstock. Now I need some chipboard numbers for the year.
I like crisp lines and that works best on good quality white paper as the softer paper kinda bleeds, spreads or feathers. :(
The weekly format I like best is lines and next month I have a better idea because attaching it with a gluestick to a background paper isn't wonderful and uses up lots of pages which also need decorating. I have figured out how to print, fold and join at the ring area for double sided! :)
I think one day to colour, stamp, stencil and doodle on the tags and papers for the upcoming month is the way to go. Then I can quickly cut, glue and embellish.
Much as I lament the loss of the January divider I am not doing more than some touch ups. Heck, January is half gone! eek!
Now I have to go and give today's date a KISS!
I have been very tempted to sign up for several fun projects...but then I wait 24 hours and the urge fades away for I know how little time I have to spend on fun and projects. KISS is a great balancer. The days are fading fast and I have yet to accomplish anything worth speaking of. You are lucky you can swim and tread water...I merely sink! Embrace the moment is my mantra today...
okay...so you're over my head now! I've not used anything more complicated than the annual calendar from the Anglican Church of Canada, for my "planner" for several years now. I know it's not very creative...but it definitely accomplished "KISS"!
