Hello, friends! Are you digging into the Daily Journal Collection? If so, we bet you have a few favorites! Let's see what a member of our creative team said about what she loves. Kim...
Hello, friends! If you love the look of mixed media but don't have the time, supplies, or inclination to "get messy", this collection is the one for you! Adding elements from the Daily Journal Collection to your planner setup will instantly boost your creativity without the fuss of paints and brushes. The thought of trying to dig out my supplies to do a fun planner setup in the midst of moving was daunting. Luckily, my Daily Journal Collection came right before we loaded the boxes and hit the road. When we arrived at our new home, I simply opened my box, pulled out my Daily Journal Personal Size Inserts, and got to work on my planner setup! Honestly, I didn't feel the need to do much; these inserts are packed with all the mixed media goodness you could want! As I flip through these pages, I instantly feel more creative. I love the Cocoa Daisy inserts in busy seasons of life. The decorated pages mean I can keep my contributions to the page simple while still having a stunning planner setup. I pulled a few papers from the Daily Journal Planner Kit for dividers. I used the monthly divider from the Daily Journal Personal Size Inserts¬†as a tracing guide for my dividers (tab included). I couldn't find my trimmer (hiding in a moving box somewhere!) so I trimmed the dividers using a simple pair of scissors. I labeled the dividers using stickers from the Daily Journal Classic Sticker Kit. This divider looks like I spent hours on it, but really, it took about two minutes to put together thanks to this card from the Daily Journal Planner Add-On Kit. All the fun layers of paper and collage came on the card. With a little adhesive and a few extra embellishments, this divider was complete. Again, another divider that looks complicated, but really it wasn't. I layered a scrap of pattern paper behind two die cuts from the Daily Journal Planner Add-On Kit, embellished with a strip of washi and a few stickers and I am done! Easy with an impact! I just love the no-mess, all-fun this collection provides. Share your planner setup with us¬†by tagging @cocoa_daisy on social media or posting to the Cocoa Daisy Fan Page.
