The Blog Hops with Heart team is BACK today with more crafty goodness! This time, we are getting serious with PLANNERS!!!! Our hop is one big circle, so just click on the name of the next blogger at the end of each post to see the next fantastic PLANNER idea. I have included the entire list of talented bloggers at the end of the post if you should get lost.
Confession time: I have ALWAYS kept a paper calendar, even after I got my first "smart" phone. IMHO, paper is WAY better than tech in this respect. I have to be able to SEE my week or month spread out in front of me to make it work. (Those fantastic alerts you can set on the smart phones are a WHOLE other ballgame--LOVE those!)
Now that Close to My Heart has a the new Everyday Life Planner System, my paper-craft life is just about complete! She is a real beauty with a gold foil inlay on the cover.
I do, however, also have a playful side that likes many other things than pretty paper...like MINIONS! I would have minions if they were an actual thing. I would! But, until then, I made my own with Close to My Heart's new Thumb Notch Punch...
It was CRAZY easy to make this little man. I just folded a piece of Pacifica CS in half and then put the FOLD side into the Thumb-Notch Punch. That made his little pill-shaped body. Then I used a little scrap of Canary CS to punch out two pieces--one for his head and one for the back side to attach over the paperclip using Liquid Glass. It was just as easy adding the single eye over a short length of Silver Foil Tape. I also added additional directions and measurements for these guy on THIS POST.
|I stuck this little guy right on the date for our hop! :)|
|Seriously, could they get any cuter???|
Here is the entire list of the Blog Hops with Heart Team participating today in case you get lost...
