baby plans sweet jung ahsang 4 WM

Hey there, Sweet friends! Jung AhSang is back with another memory keeping layout and we’re sure you’re going to love this one. Her youngest daughter recently turned one and she wanted to document her 12 month milestone in a planner layout.

Jung-AhSang

Jung explains:

My daughter, Ruby, had a donut party, and some of Sweet Stamp Shop’s products are perfect for this planner spread!  I am using the Sweet Stamp Shop Baby Plans stamp set and my Happy Planner™️. First, I stamped out a bunch of images from the stamp set that I thought I might use, colored them using my Copic markers, and then fussy cut them.  (How perfect is that banner for Ruby’s name?!)

Here is Jung’s planner all decorated:

Jung continues:

I used photos from her invitation photo session, and I also included a copy of her invitation.  Once I laid out where I wanted to place everything, I decided to do some masked stamping on her party day, Saturday the 21st.  I took some post-it notes, and masked off the other areas of the planer using the lines of the planner as my guide, and leaving the spot I want to stamp open.  I used the party hat and a small star repeatedly in the space with pink ink.

The best part of masked stamping is pulling off the masking (post-it notes in this case)

Next up, Jung added the “months old” and “year old” stamps from the Baby Plans stamp set.  She also added some washi tape and used the number candles from the Celebrate set and donut washi from an older Sweet Stamp Shop set.

Jung then added the photos and also printed out the “Donut Worry,” which is actually meant to be an iPhone wall paper, and is a free download you can find on the Design + Happiness blog here.  She also glued the invite to a piece of pattern paper, and attached it to the planner page.

About the final touches, Jung says:

To finish off my planner, I added in the stamped images from the Baby Plans set, a few stickers from my stash, and did a little journaling about her milestones. I love the little label with a baby face on it.  It’s perfect to write in a birthday time or an appointment time.  I stamped the Happy birthday sentiment from the Happy Birthday stamp set above the invite.  I also stamped and colored the Unicorn Donut…perfect for her donut party!

Her final thoughts:

I hope you liked my planner spread!  I want to use the Baby Plans stamp set in a mini album.  I took monthly photos of my baby girl, and this stamp set would be great for a mini album of those photos! I hope I inspired you to get crafty!

We hope that Jung creates that mini album soon — we know you’d love to see it! If you’d love to follow her to see more memory keeping layouts or to see her adorable daughters, make sure you follow her on Instagram.

Weekly Planner Layout Holiday December Tricia Schaden 13

Hands up if you’re ready for the holidays! We’re never too early in planning for the holidays and that’s the same sentiment contributor Tricia Schaden has in her planner for us today. Get your apple cider, hot cocoa, *ANY* hot drink of your choice, sit back and see what she’s got planned in December as you follow along with her plan with me.

Tricia-Schaden

Tricia starts:

Hello Sweet Planner Friends! It’s Tricia here and I’m sitting down to plan out the week of Dec 4-10 in my A5 planner. I can’t wait to use the brand new Holiday Doodles and December Icons stamp sets… they are just full of sweet images and phrases that are perfect to add some holiday flair to your layouts! I have chosen some beautiful holiday colors: a true red, an olive green, and a soft yellow for my palette this week.

She continues:

The first thing I want to do is stamp a To-Do list from the Take Note stamp set across each of my weekdays. Here is a simple and effective tip for lining up stamps: Use a grid mat or a tRuler to lay down a strip of removable washi tape or other low tack tape. Then use that as a guide to stamp a series of images in a line. Remove the tape and voila!…you have perfectly lined up boxes! I used my soft yellow for these images so they wouldn’t be too “loud” on my layout.

Tricia then topped her boxes off with some homemade “To Do List” stickers and got to work with my decorating. She couldn’t decide which of the cute stamps from Holiday Doodles to start with, so she decided to sprinkle them all over her page! To make this nice and easy, she mounted several images on her block at once. She inked them all up together and stamped them on scrap paper – now she will have several images to color and cut!

Tricia continues:

I am a super functional planner, so the heart of my planner is actually my PLANS! I prefer to house my events and appointments in boxes, so this Banners and More stamp set is a must for me. But to spice up my boxes, I covered the stamped smiley face with my little holiday icons. You can see in this picture, I stamped the smiley box and I have my little colored & cut Christmas tree right there ready to adhere on top. A few dots of glue from my glue pen and I have a custom holiday box!

Weekly Planner Layout Holiday December Tricia Schaden 6

She says:

Sometimes I feel like I need a big block of color (or to reserve a big block of time) and only a large box will do! This larger rectangle from the BASIC TABS set is sooooo versatile. In this instance I was looking for some color so I stamped the rectangle, then masked of the inside edges with some post-it tape.

Weekly Planner Layout Holiday December Tricia Schaden 7

She continues:

I stamped a tiny holly image from Holiday Doodles repeatedly and then colored in the background. This technique gives me the look of a full box sticker, adding color and texture to my page. I love it! I layered a little homemade label over it to jot an event.

Tricia’s been having so much fun discovering all the cool ways to combine the Sweet stamps to get different effects. In this case, the “You Got This” arrow from To Do Doodles nestles perfectly into the open edge of the hexagon from Basic tabs.

With the first half of my week pulled together, she moved over to the right hand page. She wanted to balance out some of the color and décor so she stamped the “Merry Christmas” banner from December Icons – it’s just beautiful! She colored it with colored pencils to add a bit of dimension and she love what it does to her page. She also stamped a string of merry lights from Holiday Doodles over on Saturday – it mimics the one she has on Monday and draws her eye to the party she has that night!

Weekly Planner Layout Holiday December Tricia Schaden 10

Tricia continues:

I’ve been sprinkling little snowmen, coffee mugs, candy canes, Christmas trees, and other stamps from Holiday Doodles around on my page. They are the perfect size to add some pops of color but still allow my schedule to stand out. To balance out my larger box from Wednesday, I stamped it again on Friday but I rotated it first to a horizontal orientation. I brought out the masking tape again and stamped the champagne hand from HAND OUT. We have a holiday party so this is the perfect festive stamp! Once I colored it in and added a bit of hand lettering it has a whole new look!

She final thoughts on her layout:

Peek around the rest of my completed layout – how many Holiday Doodles can you spot?? Even though it is brimming with adorable decorations, I love how my page still feels calm… there is plenty of white space for my eye to rest and for me to write in anything that may come up in the course of the week.

Weekly Planner Layout Holiday December Tricia Schaden 14

Tricia concldues with:

A little washi and the month header finish off this festive page. Thank you for following along in the blog today – I hope you picked up a tip or two along the way. Stay Merry and SWEET, planner babes! Happy Holidays!

We absolutely love the yellow Tricia added in to the traditional colors of red and green! If you’d like to learn more about her and get more tips from her about functional planning, head on over to her Instagram.

Do you know our Sweet contributor, Mayra Duran-Hernandez? If you already follow her, you may know that she loves all the princess things! 🙂 This card Mayra features is just perfect and emulates what she loves beautifully.

Mayra-Duran-Hernandez

A common theme a lot of our contributors have had this past week is that they’re first time users of Chibitronics! As most have admitted, it does take some time to play around, but it’s all about learning in the process.

About this card, Mayra says:

From the moment I got my kit, I knew I wanted to use a castle … I’m a HUGE fan of castles , lol !! I used the Royal Wish stamp set and I colored the images using Copic markers.

She continues:

I began by creating the night sky for the castle. I used black cardstock and splattered pink and white acrylic paint to create my stars. Then came putting the copper tape and lights part ..It was actually so much easier than I had thought .
