I have several of these B7 Card Case inserts for when I bought a lot of the plastic card cases to organize the stickers I sell. I got that tip from my friend Chie of Craft with Undomestic Diva. She sells planner stickers and other pretty planner yummies.
Since I love upcycling and recycling stuff, I couldn't throw away the inserts, so I decided to give these inserts one more shot at life!
I turned them into small pocket envelopes. I'll use these to house the sticker flakes and other small things that I'll give to my friends.
To make the envelope, I folded an insert in half then used washi to seal the sides.
I used Spiced Marmalade Distress Stain to add color on the right-hand side of the envelope. It's so easy to add a splash of color using Distress Stains.
After the stain dried - you can speed his up using a heat tool, I used Versa Mark and stamped the sentiment "Made with Love" using a set from Rosie's Studio stamp sets
Last Sunday, during afternoon snack, Papa, my baby brother and I talking. I guess it had been a favorite past time of ours to bully my baby brother and rile him about his weight and his habits, because we eventually started bullying him. (Yes, Papa included). I dunno how we arrived at how my baby brother was like Nobita in Doraemon, but we did. Papa said that my baby brother's very much like Nobita who always regrets things. Papa said that at the start of the story, there's always something that Nobita has to do. As the story progresses, Nobita just carries on with what he wants and not what he's supposed to do, and when he's already in a tight spot, he'll realize his mistake and then turn to Doraemon for help. He'll borrow something or beg Doraemon to do something so that he can get out of the mess, or to fix the mess. Tsk tsk tsk. Nobita full of regrets and then using Doraemon to solve the problem. How very childish.
Wow. It's already Wednesday and I only had the time and energy to do this spread today. I wanted to do it last Monday the minute this gorgeous mini HP arrived but I was down with the flu and could barely function so I stayed in bed. Then I was so busy trying to work through my shop backlog yesterday + appeasing a very clingy toddler yesterday that I didn't realize it was already 4am and I had to go to sleep already.
So I woke up a little earlier than usual today and worked on this spread. It's the first time I decorated a planner before I even write on it, and I immensely enjoyed the process! I'm not sure if I'll be able to sustain the decorating before writing but it's a good break from always being functional in my planner. It helps that I don't need that much writing space here because it's just my business planner and bulk of what needs to be written down will be in a separate sheet or in my bullet journal!
