The kids start school… next week. Crazy, right?! Almost as crazy as the fact that I have decided to throw it way back old school and get an “academic year” planner. It’s simple. Spots for each day in the week and a monthly page too. It’s not going to be fancy you won’t see stamping and decorating of these pages. 100% practical on the inside… so I decided to give it a little extra on the outside!



I love watercolor paper for so many reasons – one of them being that I can easily build a whole embellishment off of it because it is so lovely and thick. I used my ScanNCut and one of my favorite designs on the machine to quickly build this dimensional accent.

Here’s a link to YouTube¬†and the video I created sharing the entire process.

So quick and easy, and so many applications! From your workbook to your journal to even a basic and functional planner there is always something fun to be done, some way I can add my crafty touch.
