Joanna`s Planner - Inspiration Week 2 - Scrappers Delight


Joanna`s Planner - Inspiration Week 2 - Scrappers Delight

This week is Inspiration Week #2 in the Scrappers Delight digital planner.  For clarification this digital planner is a printable.  Different elements can be added to the basic planner using a graphics programme such as Pic Monkey before printing off. 

 I however, print off the base planner and stick to the more traditional methods of decorating using assorted planner stamps, inking techniques and decorative stamps to achieve the look I am after.


Now on the the subject of looks, this look is totally different to the planner page with the Genie theme.  If you read my previous blog post you will know I wasn`t too happy with the day stamps as I felt they were too big and intrusive on the spread.  As a reaction to that I have used a much softer colour scheme and have chosen to use smaller functional stamps.  These are from the usual suppliers and I will add the links below.  The balloons to celebrate my mums birthday are hand drawn and totally inspired by the sassy club stamp set that I haven`t ordered as yet....

Keeping to a limited palette of more muted colours has also resulted in a more soothing spread lol  If you look closely you will see the focus is on more inky techniques.  I have used versamark to resist the ink around the edge before over stamping with the same image.  This technique has also been used in the feature boxes.  Keeping the decoration simple will allow me to write over those decorative boxes and the inking will just become part of the background.


The main image this week is the same one  used on a new dashboard a few weeks ago.  It is called  Chastity Steampunk 2  I really like this image and it works really well with the muted colour pallette. .  I am not sure it would suit a brights but there are some clever people out there who would probably  make this work beautifully.


Hope you are all having fun with your own planners

Joanna's Planner - Recollections - Kitty Spread


This week in my recollections planner features a kitty theme.  It all started with the arrival of happy mail from the US.


Receipt of this amazing package with cat goodies from the SASSY CLUB (discount code below) and SWEET STAMP SHOP  influenced this weeks choice of image from SATURATED CANARY (aka Krista Leigh Smith).


  I have again continued the purple theme by using purple in the clothing and co-ordinating the washi to match.  The lovely meow washi was a RAK from one of the lovely ladies on 'Kittens Who Plan', and it has just finished the look.


I have used a 'catitude' image from the Sassy Club...I have to say that I love these stamps.  The line work is super, it strikes the right balance between fine and heavy.  I have also used some of the small images as accents.  I really want to use the whole set on an entire spread but I will have to put that on my to-do list for the time being...which is now another to do.  Make a spread wish list lol.

As usual I have used functional stamps from the usual suppliers.

Planner Girl Collective - My Planning Style - Joanna's Planner

To be honest I would not have said I had a particular style but as I look back over my earlier spreads I can certainly see a style developing.  It took about a year to hit the groove that seems to work for me.


I am aware that some 'planners' look down on the decorative style of planning but I am very much an each to his you a hard core pen and paper planner to a very decorative art journaler I love and gain inspiration from each of you.

 This is the theme we have been allocated this week and it has certainly made me think.
