Planner - Stay Focused Blog Hop

 Hello and Welcome to the Planner - Stay Focused Blog Hop!!!


Waffle Flower has invited some of their planner friends, along with their own 
design team, to bring YOU a fun hop about planners!

I am going to show you how I "Stay Focused" with these amazing planner 
stamps in my week 40 (Monday, September 29th - October 5th)
Before and After Shots
Stamps Used:

(left) Monday / (right) Tuesday
 For this week I created my own inserts (day per page) with white cardstock...trim down to size and
then punched holes with my Rapesco 6 Hole Adjustable Punch.  I also stamped out
the month of October on a tag so I could remove it and place it in the next day for a quick glance at the month if needed.
(left) Wednesday / (right) Thursday

For all of my stamping this week, I used the Versafine Onyx Black Pigment Ink.
I love how the images come out so sharp!  I am using the "blocks" labeled morning/day/night
for keeping track of my meals.

(left) Friday / (right) Saturday
I used my Staedtler Fineliner Pens to write the date on each page.

Sunday
I added fun arrows beside each "To-Do" on every page......I am all set for the week!!!
These blank pages will soon be filled with my daily tasks and little snippets from my week!!!
When working on my project life, I refer back to my planner pages for info :)

Top Left Pic = Monday/Tuesday
Top Middle Pic = Wednesday/Thursday
Top Right Pic = Friday/Saturday
Bottom Right Pic = Sunday

Thoughts/Tips from my week...
-I use the Grey Zebra Mildliner Highlighter to mark off tasks when they are complete!
-Really loved keeping track of my meals inside the boxes...
-Month at a glance tag = I used that to highlight my vaca week and paydays...I also
checked off the days...
-This was my first time creating a day on one page and the room is PERFECT for me!
-These stamps are not ONLY for planners, but great for handmade cards, scrapbook
layouts and project life too!

  86. What an amazing idea to hop about and learn something new about planning and not card making, although I love card making and scrapbooking, I find myself waisting time so this might be just the right thing I need.
