September 23, 2016Retro Planner Series – Butter!
Time for more planning. This week I added something fun: A decoupaged journaling card for my planner!
Since Alex has started pre-school (Hooray!), I’ve wanted to add in some more pictures every week, and I need room for ticket stubs and little memory things like that, so this fun card is blank on the back and Alex and I will collage some stuff onto it at the end of the week.
Here is the full layout. I’ve switched over to the Happy Planner because my old planner, while lovely, didn’t have enough room in it for me to write all the crap we have to do during the week. I was previously using two planners and a to-do list. Now I can cram all of my plans into one space. The Happy Planner is also great because I can punch extra stuff like the journaling card and Alex’s pre-school stuff (which is the purple folder you can see on the edge over there) and just jam them in where they fit in my planning. Highly, highly recommend this planner if you are a huge planning nerd like me.
Here’s the layout without the card. Notice the lack of decoration. I seriously need all that room to write in. I should post a pic of this thing after my week is over.
Aaaaanyways, enough nerding out. Two of my favorite parts of this are that I got to use my vintage food die cuts that I’ve been collecting for years. This little pat of butter on a green dish was the inspiration for this layout!
I also got to sift through my huge digital library of scanned vintage foodstuffs and print out copies of my butter ephemera. Yes, all these are copies. No, I do not cut up my vintage cookbook collection. Never, never! I am also pleased that this ended up being fall-ish colored, which was completely unintentional!
