Hello there! We are so excited to have this planner babe joining us at Sweet. Tricia Schaden is a functional planner – but she adds just enough decorative images to make her layouts fun.
Here’s what she had to say about it:
My first layout is tons of function and lots of fun in my foldout personal weekly. I stamped and colored tons of smaller images to highlight events throughout the week. I love the Sticky Sweet stickers too – especially those banner flags.
It’s so easy to hit those with a little colored pencil and custom match them to my palette for the week. Even though this page is really busy, I love that these images added pops of color and interest without taking up too much functional space on my layout!
Tricia’s other layout is full of haunting Halloween fun in herA5 planner! She loved playing with the Halloween Doodles stamps and pairing them with Sticky Sweet “Fall Into” and “Tabs” stickers.
Check out that full box on Tuesday! Tricia masked off a rectangle and stamped some of the tiny images repeatedly. She suggests to color the background for a custom full box look. She also loves layering elements from Sweet sets: the half box stamp with the candy corn is an adorable backdrop for a birthday event and a spooky shake!
She concludes with:
Any little characters can be used to “hold” a banner, just like I did with my ghost stamps holding the weekend banner. There are so many possibilities – Happy Haunting!
Fantastic ideas, Tricia! If you’d love to learn more about her and get more tips from her about functional planning, head on over to her blog.
