Araceli from the planner creative team

Hello, Ara here. Today I am showing you how I use the sweet life weekly inserts in my Heart of Gold planner . For this week I used the inserts for all my "home to dos" (AKA: housework).  I have been scared to use vertical inserts because I write pretty big, but hot damn, THESE  are nice!! I will continue to use these for sure! Look at all that space, plenty of writing space and decorating space.

Here is close up. I use the date seals as a little checkbox so that I can mark it off once I have completed that task.

Another Close up: The  journaling area to the right is where I will be jotting down Items that we need from the grocery store throughout the week. 

I used the Purple heart checklist as a "to call" note. I added alphas stickers and hole punched it to add into my planner. 

That is all for today friends, Don't forget if you would like to see more of how I use this planner, check out my: Instagram. Until next time, bye bye.

You & Me - Card by Yasmin Tölche

Hello everyone! It's Yasmin from the Creative Team on the blog today. I love playing around with papers and making cards from leftover paper from making bigger things like layouts. Today I  have a card to share.

I've played around with different collections. Marion Smith's collection goes very well together and there's no problem mixing them.

I've used the Romance Novel  2 Collection and loads from the Junque Gyspy collection. The papers are just so gorgeous and devine. I love the vintage feel.

The beautiful key is a junque and gem.. Also the small green gems are Marion Smith Designs Embellishments. I love putting details on my cards like the

@Love Layout by Irene Tan

Hello friends! Have you all tried playing with the Color Lab kit by Marion Smith Designs? If not, today I would like to show you all a layout which I've decorated with tons of flowers colored using Color Lab.

This layout features the beautiful and vintage "Junque Gypsy" collection by Marion Smith Designs.

To warm the tones of this layout, I've used Color Lab to color some warmer tones on the flowers.

It is so easy to color these flowers using Color Lab. Here are some simple steps which I've used. First of all, mist the flowers by using the spray with the mixture of color pigments of your choice.

While the flower is still wet, use a brush and some darker tones pigment to add depths to it.

Keep adding colors until you get your desired flower look. I've also added some glitter to my flowers for some sparkle.

Supplies Used:
Junque Gypsy collection
Color Lab kit

Hope you all like these simple tips. Hope to see you all again soon!

Sweet Life Planner Inserts

Happy Saturday everyone!  I wanted to share my current week on the new Sweet Life line!  I fell in love with this entire line as soon as I saw the macarons!  

This was the last week of Summer break for my kids and we had a lot to do!  Although these inserts are daily inserts, I decided to use two sheets to keep all my to do's, schedule and notes for the week, all in one place. 

I found this to be the perfect format not only for a busy week like mine, but also for planning a special event, like a birthday party or an upcoming project.  There's plenty of space and various boxes to keep all of your info and planning on a two page spread

I used both of Marion's planner stamp sets on my layout.  There's so many icons to choose from, it's all you really need to create your layout.  Thanks for looking and have a great weekend!

Grateful For Happiness

Hello all you lovelies. Today Shanna here with a layout I created a layout to share you using some fabulous papers. 

I love seeing all the different ads of newspaper and I thought why not use these to create a collage. With how they vary in size and shape I thought this would be perfect. 

So once I cut them out I pulled the ones I wanted and glued them down. 

While the glue was drying I gesso'd the chipboard. 

I used the gesso I had left with a bit of water to sprinkle on the background. 

While I let that dry I got started with layering up the chipboard. 

I used some Silks Acrylic Paint and some Twinkling H20's.

I used H20's to layer up colors on the background before I added my photo and embellishments. 

Here you can see the final layout and close ups. 

Give it a go collaging the tiniest pieces and have fun creating.

Junque Gypsy - Carpe Diem
Junque Gypsy - Carte Blanche

"Posh" Layout with Sandi

Hello, everyone! 

Sandi here with you today sharing a layout created with papers from the "Posh" collection. Classic teal, florals and leopard … so yummy! 

I did a small bit of mixed media work on the background but kept it very light. I wanted that floral paper to really shine front and center. 

Then I built up a few layers with media, papers, embellies and flowers. I even pulled out a fabric flower I've had for YEARS~ but it was so perfect for this photo!

Here are a few close-ups:

That's it from me today.
Thanks for coming by today!

Annie from Planner Creative Team

Hi love bugs!

It's Annie again and I'd like to share my weekly layout spread with you all. I hope you'll all enjoy how my week turned out in my Heart of Gold planner (:

Here are my photos:

This is the entire weekly spread, as you can see I used cute stamps to date my inserts and stickers to add embellishment to my planning:

 This is a close-up of the first half of the spread. I used some alpha stickers for the name of the month. I also used some die cuts for a cute flair.

 This is a close-up of the second half of the spread. I use the tracker for water, medicine, and vitamins. I'm thinking about adding daily work outs to this area as well. I'm hoping it'll motivate me to keep up with the work outs cause I neeeeeed it!

And that's everything! Thank you for stopping by and feel free to leave comments on this post so I can respond to you <3

Araceli from the Planner team

Hello Ara here, Today I wanted to share with you my current week (week 33). Since I don't have much going on this week, I chose to use the Daily Planner Inserts as a weekly insert.

What I did was covered the Morning, Afternoon and evening and labeled them as Buy/Errands/Call. 

On the bottom right side of the insert, I used it as a meal plan (this is what I plan to make during the week).

If you would like to see more picture on how I use the Heart of Gold Planner check out my Instagram: click Here

Until Next time, Ara. =)

Altered Bottle by Irene Tan

Hi Marion Smith fans! Today I'm going to share with you all a project which is a little different from my usual. This time, I'm sharing an altered bottle using tons of mixed media techniques and Marion Smith Designs Junque and Gems. 

Besides the amazing Colorlab paints, I've used some resin flowers, gems, glass and bezzel. I've also used some images from the Timekeeper and Junque Gypsy collection to add details to this bottle.

I've used a vintage image from the Junque Gypsy collection to insert into the glass and bezzel before adding it to the bottle.

The colorlab pigments add depth and hint of metallic effect on this bottle.

Supplies Used:
Colorlab kit
Resin Rose - Mint
Junque and Gems - Glass and Bezzel
6 x 6 Timekeeper collection
6 x 6 Junque Gypsy collection

See you all soon!
