Planner Stamping: February 29 - March 6, 2016 Work

{I'm backdating my posts to the week that is dated in my planner.}  I'm only a week and a half in, but I LOVE my new set up.  Since the new planners are out and start in July, I didn't want to buy an old one and only use it until July.  So I bought a 6-month expansion pack and I'm using that as my work planner for now.  Like with my personal layouts, it's taken a bit to get into a system I like.

As I've been unpacking, (hahaha, I've been unpacking since November) I forgot how much stuff I have, lol.  I also forgot how much 'old' stuff I have.  I've slowly been sifting through it all and either getting rid of it or trying to use it.  Once upon a time I was really into scrapbooking, so I realized I own a lot of stickers.  Which is nice now that I'm a planner girl, lol.  Since I don't want to stamp as much in my work planner, I figured this would be a good way to use up stuff.

I originally started this layout (black and white) as one of the The Happy Planner Instagram Challenge, so I just went with it.  It was actually pretty fun and love how it turned out.  I love having all this extra space to write and move things around as needed.  And while I know I have great penmanship, I really want to work on writing more evenly.  We shall see.  Hope you have a great day!

Planner Stamping: February 29 - March 6, 2016 - Sparkle Creations Turntable Josh

Here is my layout for this coming week.  I have separated my work and personal stuff, so this is my first layout that only contains my personal stuff.  Since my work one will look so much different at the end of each week, I decided that I'll be posting those a week behind.  My work layouts won't have as much stamping and coloring as my personal ones, but it'll be good to use up my stash of stuff (lots and lots of stickers, lol) and have a more functional workspace for me.

I got a new photo background mat and I'm trying it out.  I'm still debating on whether I should go back to using my DSLR for taking my photos.  I've been participating in the Happy Planner Instagram Challenge this month (a picture every day) and I'm pretty proud of myself for sticking to it and still only using my phone to take pictures.  In March, I plan to collage and post all my pictures on here too.

You can see I have a lot of bills due this week, lol.  It's not noted in this layout, but I'm doing a no spend until my birthday.  That's 35 days of not buying anything crafty.  The new Happy Planners release March 1st, so I may use my Michael's gift card and snag one...we shall see.  The paper pack I used is called B-side, which is meant to be the B side of a cassette tape. :)  I went with a music theme this week and like how it all came together.  Well, I hope you all have a great day!
