Be Still.....

Be still, and know that I am God. (Psalms 46:10) This Month I wanted to share with you how I used my Floral Dot Carpe Diem Planner and the Faith collection as my War Binder. This scripture has so much meaning to me that I cried when I first saw the 6X8 pad. I knew right away what I was going to use as my Dashboard.

Through out my life I've had some very difficult moments. Some that people will never have to go through in their lifetime. From having my first born son prematurely and needed to stay in the hospital for 30 days and just days before he was released was told, to prepare my self for the worst, he most likely is not going to make it! I couldn't understand, and I wasn't going to accept that. Our church prayed at the next service while we were there and by the end of the week he was able to go home.
When our daughter turned four we went in for a routine checkup and found out she had a heart murmur, but the doc wasn't to concerned, but was concerned enough to have a child cardiologist take a look at her heart. Before I knew it there are 4-5 doctors in the room with us all whispering among themselves. I felt my heartbeat in my ears. I was like, what is going on! My eyes were darting back and forth. It was then that her cardiologist informed us that she needed to have open heart surgery. I felt like I was punched in the gut.
From surgeries, marriage, and all the other things life throws at me. Sometimes I try to take matters in my own hands and sometimes I did and messed up everything, but God was always there and still is, reminding me to be Still! Through a song playing on the radio, from a friend, from a greeting card to my daily devotion, a sermon on a Sunday morning, on a journal sent to me, and now with a Simple Stories Faith Collection Line. I'm humbled that he would take the time to constantly bring me reminders of who really is in control.

 The Faith A5 planner inserts are perfect for my war binder. I used the Inspired journal inserts, to keep track of what I was reading, inspiration and prayers. I also made a little flag paperclip bookmark. This has to be one of my favorite color schemes of all time. The florals, mason jars, mint, Aqua, pinks and yellow are so beautiful. All of the journal cards and stickers are just what I need to add some inspiration and encouragement to my day.

As part of my war binder, I keep my monthly scripture writing in it. I use the weekly inserts to write down each scripture for the day.


Jesus is the reason I live and breath, he is my hope and my salvation. I serve him because I need him! My life and everything about me is far from perfect, but I'm thankful to know who is! I am also very thankful that I now have a gorgeous way of documenting all my prayers, daily scriptures and more, using the Faith Collection.

Say Cheese!

Say Cheese! One of newest collections that I'm absolutely obsessed with. I used the new speckle dot Carpe Diem planner as my memory planner. Memory planning is very important to me because it's a reminder of memories created. Simple Stories and Carpe Diem planner made a perfect solution and match for what I wanted to achieve in my Memory planning.


I've always been a fan of Disney Land and as I open up my planner, instantly it brings a smile to my face and memories start rolling through my mind. My pockets are stuffed with sticky notes, paperclips and ephemera.


As you turn the pages of my planner you will notice several pictures of my family and I. We went to Disney Land 2 times a year and created some of the best memories there. All the red and black with polka-a-dots, mouse ears, stars and yellow 12 month planner inserts are the perfect pairing!





The pocket folders are perfect for storing your stickers. The camera is such a cute extra addition to personalizing your planner and the Doc it journal fits perfectly in the back. Ready for me to take out anytime and add my pictures and journaling.



 Adults are only kids grown up, anyway, Walt Disney. Thank you Simple stories for designing and creating and making the Say Cheese collection. It made my memory planning magical and special. I can't wait to continue to create and play!

Heartfelt Journal by Eileen Hull

Good Day everyone, I'm so excited to introduce to you a new die cut from Eileen Hull. It is the Heartfelt Journal. I had the privilege to make some. 
I can't believe how easy and user friendly these are. It makes crafting a Journal a cinch! I couldn't wait to start creating.


I first binded the two pieces together with elastic. I then covered some of the journals with scrapbook paper and very thin denim. The possibilities are endless. You can material, felt and so much more!

I made a total of three and have them filled with journal inserts and stickers, folders and pens, pencils and of course a picture of my family! 





Thank you everyone who stopped by the blog..I hope you enjoyed it. For more inspiration follow me on  Instagram

October Fest!!


I am so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers, Anne of Green Gables. I love that quote.
Every time fall comes around I always remember it. This month I would love to see your October
Fest Planner spreads. Oranges, black, pumpkins, flowers, trick-or-treats, ghost, goblins, 
carnivals, hayrides, haunted houses..are just some of my inspirations for October. As I sit here 
eating candy corn, I decided I wanted to make personal dividers from several collection lines 
from the shop.

I focused more on the colors that reminded me of October. I punched out some tabs and typed 
the sections out and glued to dividers. I absolutely love making dividers and it's an awesome 
way to personalize your planner.


In the next three photos I will be showing a close up of the dividers. You will notice that I used 
one of the journaling cards from the Gather collection by Maggie Holmes and typed a scripture 
on it for my dashboard, I also noticed a spelling error. (Oops). I used stickers to add to the top 
of the dividers to add some dimension and washi tape for fun.



This, ladies is the product of my planner labor. How happy this makes me when I see my 
planner opened and ready for another Month of planning.

Thank you all once again for stopping by and I hope I have inspired you in some way. I would 
love to see what you do with your October Planner spreads, by simply heading over to the 
Paper Issues Friends and Fan Face Book Group. Remember by doing so you have an 
opportunity to win one of two gift cards to the shop. You have Until November 1, 2016 to enter.
