Hello, everyone!

How is it that another month of 2017 has already gone by? It’ll be 2018 before we know it! Geez!!

September Functional Planner Stickers: Free Printable - Pink Bows & Twinkle Toes

I went with a slightly more vibrant purple palette for this month’s freebie! It coordinates quite nicely if I do say so myself! 🙂

I’ve been making functional printables for over a year now, so if you’re interested, here’s the freebie from last year, September Functional Planner Stickers 2016! The 2016 and 2017 theme colors are exactly the same, so if you want to use the printables together, they match perfectly.

Before I give you the sticker freebie file, there are a few things I’d like to say.  I spent a lot of time designing and creating this printable, so please be kind when you use it.

DIY Planner Dividers: Personal Size

Hi everyone!

I have a super easy paper crafting project for you today!

I recently purchased a kikki.K personal planner!  I love my new planner, but I didn’t love the dividers that came with it.  I’ve seen so many cute handmade dividers online, so I decided to make some myself!

IMG_8265

Here’s a little sneak preview of the finished product!

IMG_7782

Supplies:

  • Large paper dividers or file folders
  • Paper cutter
  • Glue dots
  • Pencil
  • Scissors
  • Dividers that already fit your planner
  • Decorative papers and appliques
  • 6-hole punch (find one here)

The dividers I have came with seven tabs.  I knew I only wanted four tabs for my dividers, so I had to make a few adjustments to make the dividers fit and not look awkward!

IMG_7785

You’re going to start by tracing your first divider onto one of the large file folders.

IMG_7786

Leave a little space at the bottom of the first tab.

IMG_7788

Take the next divider “in line” and scooch it up a little to create a larger tab for your first divider.  Finish tracing the rest of the tab.

IMG_7790

This is actually a picture of the second divider, but you can still see what the divider tabs should look like.

Once you have the dividers drawn out, cut them with your paper cutter.  I cut all the straight edges first.

IMG_7792

At first, I wasn’t sure how I was going to cut the tabbed side of the divider.  I decided to cut part of it with the paper cutter and the actual tab area with a pair of scissors.

While using the paper cutter, I had to be very careful not to accidentally slice my tab right off!  To avoid that happening, I stopped the paper cutter about half an inch from the tab on each side.  I then finished cutting it with some scissors.

Getting the inside corners perfectly rounded was pretty tough, but I think I managed okay!

IMG_7795

Here are all the cut out dividers!

You may have noticed that there are five papers in the picture!  About halfway through my project, I decided to make a dashboard to match my dividers!

To make the dashboard, just line up all of your original dividers, trace around them, and then cut it out!  It’s super easy!

IMG_7826

I love the striped, metallic dividers, but I wanted to add a little something else to them!

I found these fun Project Life cards and cardboard appliques at Hobby Lobby.  When I saw them, I knew they’d be perfect for this project!

IMG_7800

I played around with a few different design options.

IMG_7829

Here’s what I decided on!

IMG_7832

I used some adhesive, glue dots to attach all of the decorative items.  I’m rather heavy handed with every kind of adhesive, so you may not find this many glue dots necessary! 🙂

IMG_7918

Now it’s time to punch the holes!  Once all of the holes are punched, your dividers are complete!

Dividers

Here are all of the finished dividers!

Aren’t they so cute?!  I love the light pink with all of the gold accents! So classy!

IMG_8244

I absolutely love the way the dashboard and dividers look with my light blue planner and matching, pink planner clips!

I hope you’ve enjoyed this little tutorial!

Happy Crafting and Happy Planning!

DIY Hand Embroidery Quote – Aspire To Be

Hi everyone!

I have another embroidery phrase to share! IMG_1725Supplies:

  • Embroidery hoop
  • Embroidery floss
  • Fabric (mine is from Hobby Lobby)
  • Printed phrase
  • Pencil
  • Scissors
  • Needle

IMG_1728 DMC Floss Colors:

  • 823 – navy
  • E3821 – metallic gold (optional)

We’re going to start by printing out a phrase.

I chose “Aspire To Be” because it’s short, cute, and something we say in my sorority (Kappa Kappa Gamma).

Because my quote is somewhat inspirational, I chose a script font that fit well with the phrase. IMG_1733Use your pencil to trace your phrase onto your fabric. IMG_1736We’re going to start by double Back Stitching the body of the “A” and single Back Stitching the little connector.

By “Double Back Stitching” I simply mean two rows of the Back Stitch right next to each other.

I double up my Back Stitch when I want to make my lines thicker. IMG_1740 IMG_1749 IMG_1751Continue to Back Stitch “aspire” until you reach the end.

Remember to only double stitch the main portion of each letter and single stitch the connectors.

Use a French Knot to dot the “I” IMG_1755 IMG_1760Use the single and double Back Stitch method for the last two words as well.

Once, “to be” is done, our project is complete!!

If you want to add a little more pizzazz, you can use the gold thread to Whip Stitch around the letters.  Just like we did in our “Eat cake” project.

IMG_1782I love how classic this project looks!

There’s nothing wrong with simplicity!

Happy Crafting and Aspire To Be (KKG)!! Bow signature pink

DIY Hand Embroidery Motif – Kate Spade Quote

Hi everyone!

I love Kate Spade and hand embroidery, so I decided to combine the two in this next project! IMG_1341Supplies:

  • Fabric (I got mine at Hobby Lobby)
  • Embroidery hoop
  • Embroidery floss
  • Pencil
  • Needle
  • Sharpie

IMG_1343DMC Floss Colors:

  • 823 – Navy Blue
  • E3821 – Metallic Gold

IMG_1332Type up and print out the quote.

I used a font called “Things People Do For Love!” You can download it too or use another font you like! IMG_1337Trace the quote onto your fabric. IMG_1350We’re going to start with the navy thread and Back Stitch the words. IMG_1355IMG_1358IMG_1363The quote looks so cute!

If you’re satisfied, you can stop now. If you’d like to add a little more pizzazz and tie in the gold dots, keep reading! IMG_1367Separate the gold thread into individual strands.

Take one of the strands and whip it around the navy Back Stitch. The gold thread only pierces the fabric at the beginning and end of each letter.  You just weave it over and under each stitch. Does that make sense? IMG_1373IMG_1378IMG_1385Sooooooo cute! I can’t tell you how much I love this (and cake!) 🙂

Happy Crafting!
