This year I started making my own artful planner.
I don’t use the calendar inserts that usually come with the organizer. Instead of
I create each insert myself digitally in photoshop and decorate it. When finished I just print it out, cut in half, hole punch and put it in the binder.

That’s how my first week this year looked:

And the very first page:

I also made all dividers myself using the Sanctuary Papers I created a while back for Blue Fern Studios, got a laminator and a 3 (6) hole punch.
With the 2nd week I started to add on the printed pages some stickers. I used past Winter Kits, just printed a few elements, cut around and added them on top of the page.

For now it is just playing around a bit, trying what works best and having fun.

      Jasper1….these kind of posts with this lettering are SO hard to read and just plain frustrating. Why do people use them? AAaaarrgh!

    Happy New Year and thank you for the quick page. By the way, Irene’s “family memories” with parts of the portraits extending past the frame is awesome. I’ll have to try that too with one of the old photos I have, but will try using one of the great grand-children’s pictures and have the my mother reaching out to what would have been her great-great-grandchild. Then I’ll title it “Through the Generations”. Thanks so much for the idea. Blessings, Handmaiden Dotty
