Setup Saturday with the Gather Collection

Setup Saturday with the Gather Collection
Hello, friends! It's Setup Saturday and we have two fantastic designs to share with you. Whether you are setting up your planner or preparing for a fresh memory-keeping project, the Gather Collection is sure to make your creativity shine! Jennifer's beautiful planner is ready for November! "Changing out my dashboards is my favorite part of setting up a new month. For the first dashboard, I layered some paper from the Gather Planner Kit with a calendar card from the Gather Modern Memory Keeping Kit. I do this almost every month; I love having the calendar view upfront as soon as I open my planner! This card is double-sided with a Monday and Sunday start to fit the needs of most planner girls.
For the second dashboard, I used a standard size dashboard from the Traveler’s Notebook Memory Keeping Kit. So simple and easy!
On the third dashboard, I layered more paper and dashboards. I love how easy it is to make simple dashboards and dividers that are still beautiful.
My fourth dashboard is my favorite this month! I took some paper and trimmed down a 4x6 card. Rounding the corners on the trimmed-down card gives it a nice finished touch.
For my final dashboard, I layered some teal paper from the Gather Planner Kit with a mustard-colored dashboard and I love the contrast! This was a personal-size dashboard from the Gather Planner Dashboard Kit that I trimmed down. I love that the dashboard kit comes with both personal size and A5 dashboards so that I can trim and manipulate them to fit whatever size planner I’m in.

Audrey is setting up a very special scrapbooking project with the Gather Collection.
"Hello, Daisies! This year is a special year for my husband and me. We are celebrating our 10 year wedding anniversary. So, I am doing what any crafty scrapbooker would do, I am making an album to celebrate the last 10 years. Let's dive in and see how I set up my cover page.
I am using a 3x8 album so I started by cutting down one of the Gather Memory Keeping Kit Papers. I then punched the circles out of the paper circle to make a pattern. After, I used some of the alpha stickers from the Gather Classified: Memory Keeping Kit to spell out my last name.
Next up in my setup, I stitched a messy border around the page to tie the whole page in together. Then, I used the stamp/pen test page found in the Gather Planner Kit and the Gather Memory Keeping Stamp Sets and ink from the collection to stamp the number 10 on the album.
I finished this title page by adding a few embellishments around the page. I really love how this came together and the pop it gives to the opening of my album. Cheers!!"
