Creative Time With Friends!
With the kids back to school, three friends and I got together this week to create new Planners for the school year. We had a great time, eating, talking and drinking mimosas and coffee. Since making a planner tends to be a big project, we decided to allow two full days to work together.
On our first day, I decided to create a piece of fabric paper. I talked about this process in a Fabric Paper Design post last December. This is one of my favorite ways to "play" with design and color. Here is a look at what the fabric paper turned out like:
For the pages, I used the free printable weekly planner page templates available at Vertex42. I used these pages last year for my Planner and they worked great to keep track of all the millions of kid activities and all the jewelry To-dos.
For a final organizational tool, I sewed a pocket using Grunge paper from Tim Holtz. I love the feel and the smell of this paper! It smells like leather!
So here is the final result! Let me know what you think about my new Planner.
I did get a chance to finish up a few pieces of new jewelry; a pair of flip flop earrings, coffee cup earrings, a peace sign necklace and a few other surprises. Look for the new pieces to appear on my Esty shop over the next few days.
I hope all of you have a wonderful weekend and I will be back to blog on Monday about what will be happening next week at my studio. Stay tuned for a news of a New Store carrying Stacie Jewelry....
