01.28.16 - Happie Scrappie : You're a Gem (Fauxdori)

Yep! It's that time again. I'm still subscribed to the Happie Scrappie Planner Kits. This is the Fauxdori version. I haven't posted the previous ones because I didn't have the time to do it. I would post them now, but I've already separated a lot of the items.

Sam has started doing more original-type products instead of just purchased items thrown together. I actually really like this more. She's also started shipping them out in these awesome cardstock envelopes which give you a glimpse of what the theme is.

01.27.16 - Creating&Co Limited Edition Makeup Kit

 Awhile ago, when I started to decorate my Erin Condren Life Planner (aka ECLP); Vee of Glamourdoll Eyes had recommended Creating&Co to me. The funny thing is... I think it was when they first opened that I had purchased one sheet of stickers from them. I think they were cancellation stickers (I'm out of them; but I remember ordering from them :P). I had only stuck with a few sticker shops during that time.

Anyway, back to my story. Vee had told us about a makeup kit and when I saw it, I had to get it. At first, I thought it was limited edition so I rushed to get it. But I don't think it is because it's still on their site. When I received it, I was so in love with it. But by that time I had shied away from using my ECLP. (It doesn't work for me) I really wanted to use it in my binder-planner (I was using a Gillio at that time). 

Even though I know its mainly designed for the ECLP, you can definitely use it for binder planners and that makes me really happy. There are some sticker kits that you can't even really use for the binder planners :(

Anyway, long story short: She put out another Makeup kit but this time it's Limited Edition. Oh you have no idea how I stayed up for this. I know they're just stickers but, stationery is my one and true love. Plus the fact that there's an exclusive Glamourdoll Eyes eyeshadow is awesome!

WEEK(S) in REVIEW: 01.11.16 - 01.24

 PLANNER: Van der Spek Custom Binder in Senior Size & Erin Condren Life Planner
Inserts: diyFish v3s3 (3 month trial)

I'm starting to get the hang of the A6/Senior size... plus I kind of set up the planner to how I wanted it to be. It's not complete, but it's about 80% finished. I don't know if I'll be continuing to use this size after these inserts are done. We'll see :)

WEEK IN REVIEW: 12.28.15 - 01.03.16

 Near the end of November (Yes, that long :P), I was debating with my friend about which sized planner I should use at the start of this year. I liked the personal sized planner but it's still too heavy/bulky to bring with me. Plus, I set it up the way I wanted it. 

I thought, okay...maybe a pocket sized one? I used the pocket on and off the last few months. But it's still too small. Then I looked at my poor neglected Van der Spek custom planner (Senior size/A6).... Taa daa! So, I had the planner! Now, what planner inserts!?!? Another long debate with myself... When I used the pocket and the personal sized ones, I had used the Sew Much Crafting ones a lot. I loved the quality of the paper! But she didn't make any A6 sized ones... so I looked up A6 sized inserts and didn't like a lot of them.
