Welcome to the Hello! Annual Catalogue 2016-2017 Blog Hop! You’ll be hopping around 10 amazing Stampin’ Up!® Independent Demonstrators blogs, each with an inspirational project, featuring new catalogue products.

Currently you’re visiting Louise Sharp from Australia.  You can continue hopping my using the previous and next buttons at the end of this post. Now, let’s scroll down to see what I’ve been making.

IT'S BIG!!! #planning #planners #prettyplanning #memoryplanning
Yes, planners and planner pages are on trend at the moment and it's something I have started doing in the past couple of months using my Hello Lovely Project Life Card Collection from Stampin' Up! and fussy cutting out some of the elements and also using the stickers from the Accessories Kit. 

As you all know, Stampin' Up! have awesome products for all sorts of papercrafting, card making and memory keeping addicts, like myself!  I decided to use things I already have to prettify my current planner.
The little Bow Clips Embellishments and Gold Binder Clips are seriously the best! I also made my own page bookmark using some the Flirty Flamingo Ruched Ribbon.

Here's a snippet of a couple of my pages from this week:
*Planner is my own - not from Stampin' Up! 
Other ideas that are going around my head with things I can use in my planner are endless. These include:
  • Other Project Life Card Collection & Accessory Packs on pages 164-165
  • Any of the Stamps. I especially like the Project Life Date It stamp on page 166.
  • Washi Tapes and Ribbons
  • Any of the Punches. The new Duet Banner Punch comes to mind on page 186.
  • The Thinlits & Framelits 
I'm sure there's many other ideas I have missed, please let me know if you have other ideas. I will share more planner pages in the future with other ideas and I hope I have inspired you to get creative with your planners and journaling pages. #planning #youaregoingtoloveit
