Use a Sticker

Hi everyone, Doris here with the last
challenge of February for Crafting by Designs.
For this week's challenge, we'd like you to
show us how you use STICKERS.

I'm a card maker and scrapbooker, but
as the owner/administrator of Crafting by Designs,
I'm also a planner.  I love planners and have quite a
few of them.  Sometimes I decorate my page but keep
it to a minimum.  My CBD planner has notes and 
dates all the way to the end of the year, but if I 
have time, I like to decorate a month at a time.
Typically I'll use the sponsor's logo and maybe
an image from their shop as a reminder
of who the DT will be working with as well as
assorted functional stickers and maybe a splash of
washi tape.

I've watched my fair share of "plan with me" videos, and
love the results of others, but simplicity works
for me with a little splash of pretty, especially
in the CBD planner.  So for my project for this week's
challenge, I decided to show this week's page 
in that planner, before and after I decorated.

At the beginning of each calendar year I print out
several pages of stickers made from the logos of
the CBD sponsors and maybe an image from
their shop so I know who the team will
be working with that week.  It's a good
way for me to add a little color to the page
before I add some functional stickers.

So that's my little project for the week.  Please
stop by Crafting by Designs HERE to enter your project
and show us how you use stickers!

You Are Beautiful!

Hi everyone, Doris here with a
project for the new challenge at
Crafting by Designs.
This week our theme is
You Are Beautiful
and we'd like you to make something
for yourself!

Our sponsor this week is
There are such beautiful collage images
at Lunagirl, and the DT was given some
fabulous vintage images to work with.
 I decided to make a planner charm using one
of my favorite images from the Women/Charms set
and started with a smallsilver frame.  Then I found a vintage
pearl dangly thingy - is that a crafty term?
I also made a ribbon and pearl tassle and attached that. 
I love how it turned out and think it
will look great attached to my planner. 

We'd love to see your projects - you can
Thanks for stopping by today!
