This year one of my goals (yes I am one of those crazy people that likes to set goals...could be a competitive thing) is to think outside the box. Why cause I thought it could be interesting and a challenge..again competitive thing. lol How do I use this set in a out of the box and different way?
How about ONLY use part of the words from the images to create new phrases for my planner! Boom shocka-lacka!!! I am quite proud of this idea. haha Yep I am a planner girl too I've been using planners for years and about 4 years ago created a system that works awesome for all of our different business and personal life. Stampin' Up! does sell a planner but I didn't want to change my system that I already have set in place and fine tuned. I had a planner for each one of our business (4), a budget planner, memory keeper planner, blog planner and class planner, and a personal planner. Think I am a addict? lol This year I decided to condense down to one mini planner for our businesses, budget and personal planner. I still kept my 2 planners for my Stampin' Up! business and memory keeper planner. We'll see if it works, I like the idea of small planner to carry it with me just not sure if it'll be big enough for all of our happenings.
Any how I created various new phrases by using our Stampin' Write Markers to highlight the different words then stamping them one at a time to create new phrases. Top left corner I have created a label "Inspire today" is one of them. I used the today word to create the countdown sticker till christmas. Yes it was challenging I am sure hubby thought I had gone bat crazy when I kept yelling boo ya when I got something to line up. lol
I love documenting our life and my planner is a big part of my story....it's the only thing that keeps me together haha. So I thought this set was fitting for me. I created a Date sticker for our Date night by using the us and heart out of one of the other stamps. I love the saying lets get together and giggle. I will be spending a weekend with my cousin's boys and when were together we giggle a lot so the saying was very fitting for that event. Another thing this year I am doing for a goal is setting aside 1 day out of the month for just me. This means no working just stamping for fun, maybe a pajama day reading one of my books, or watching T.V. you get the idea. That day will be unplanned I'll do what I feel like doing when I wake up! I created the you day sticker by using a couple of different words out of the stamps in the stamp set.
I hope my project inspired you to think outside the box!
