DCS: Show Us Saturday #1

Happy New Year to all of you :)
I hope you all had a fantastic time & enjoyed celebrations.

This last week has been quite hectic with trying to relax & enjoy the festive season with my family & friends but now that my business is up & running it's a bit hard to not think about all the things that need to be done. However, I tried my best with not touching my laptop :)  Now I can get back into it again.

Last week I participated in the My Project Monday over at Dreamtime Craft Supplies blog & showed you that I was hopefully going to find the time to pretty up my planner pages. I am happy to say that I did actually do it.

I bought my planner last year but didn't get to use it much so I figured why not re-model it for 2016?!

I first needed to find a planner printable that co-ordinated with the planner page colours. Luckily, I found a blog called Laughing & Losing It where Christina has made this gorgeous hedgehog planner printable. I just had to have it in my planner :) Thanks so much Christina for making this available.

I have to admit that it took me a while to figure out what I was going to do to change the dates but after a little bit of thinking & looking at all those pretty planners on my Pinterest board, I came up with a solution.

I used my Little Lizzie font Die-Versions die to create the days & dates of the week & stuck everything down with Ranger Glossy, do you know how strong that stuff is as a glue? Talk about dry fast! lol

I only wrote in a few things on the planner pages that are in accordance to my business blog but I will write in all the other to-do items later.  I just didn't want to bore you with my business stuff lol.

I had a good time putting together my planner pages & will definitely be doing it again. Even though this is the first time I have done this to any planner of mine, I am pretty happy with the outcome. It was good to finally get some time to get some crafting done even if it was to decorate a planner lol.

Have you created anything in the last week?
Enter it into Show Us Saturday over at Dreamtime Craft Designs blog?

I really hope you had a great Christmas & New Year.
Here's to a fantastic 2016!

Thanks for popping by & happy crafting
