Hello, friends! With so many beautiful colors, patterns, and illustrations, the Afternoon Tea Collection is bound to make your planner pages look stunning! Jennifer is adding all the pretty stickers to her hourly planner. This week I had fun using the Afternoon Tea Collection sticker kits in my Erin Condren hourly planner. My favorite thing about the Cocoa Daisy sticker subscriptions is that I can subscribe to a few kits I love and when they arrive on my doorstep I know that no matter which planner is in my lineup I'm using for the week, the stickers will work! There is truly something for everyone. The Afternoon Tea Planner Add-on Kit has some of my very favorite stickers; I use the day of the week stickers and the circle date dots from this kit every single month! The habit trackers are stackable and work well on the sidebar of this particular planner. The weekend banners are also a monthly favorite; they are purely decoration for me but I cannot live without them. This Afternoon Tea Collection came with quite a few hexagon stickers and I used them to mark the timed appointments for the week. I hope you take a moment and watch my plan with me for the week. I'll see you back next month! Happy planning! [embed]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eLgXZe0XKnc[/embed] We love seeing Marsha's memory planner filled with this gorgeous collection. I am using the Cocoa Daisy Unbound Daisy Planner for my memory planning this year. I have added it to discs and love that the pages can be removed as I am working on a spread. The Afternoon Tea Collection was perfect for documenting this week in March. I focused primarily on the pinks and greens from the kits and added bold pops of black with the General Store Number Stamp, found in the Afternoon Tea Modern Memory Keeping Kit. I arranged my photos according to date and created some simple flips using copy paper to create the hinges. The flips allowed me to include several additional photos for the week. I used die cuts from the kits to keep the flips in place and love the added details this provides to the layout. One of the envelopes from the Afternoon Tea Modern Memory Keeping Kit was the perfect accent in the corner of the page. I added phrase stickers onto a die-cut and tucked it into the envelope. I also used a border punch to create a notebook paper edge on another die cut and included it in the envelope. I love stamping in my memory planner and couldn't resist using the stamps from the Memory Planning Step by Step Class bundle and the Afternoon Tea Travelers Notebook Memory Keeping Kit stamp to add some stamped details to the page. The stamping tells the stories of the week along with my typed journaling. To complete the layout, I added chipboard stickers, die cuts, and puffy stickers to several areas of the spread. Be sure to check out my Instagram to view my reel showing more layout details and the interactive elements of my spread! Renee is also enjoying this collection inside her memory planner. In my Heidi Swapp planner this week, I chose to use elements from the Afternoon Tea Collection. I think this is my favourite collection yet - such a fun theme! I absolutely love using the puffy letters that came in the Afternoon Tea Modern Memory Keeping Kit. In this layout, I used them to add the title of my month as well as to fill in the empty space I had at the bottom right side of my layout. When I create my layouts I like to use ‚Äòtitles‚Äô to start my journaling, here I used the ‚Äòmemorable moment‚Äô stamp from the Afternoon Tea Travelers Notebook Memory Keeping Kit before I started my journaling on Monday. I wanted to add the ‚Äòin the news‚Äô title on Tuesday but did not have enough room so I decided to use the letter stickers from the Afternoon Tea Classified: Memory Keeping Kit to add my title sideways to my layout. The letter stickers are also great for layering on top of stickers. I used them to spell out the word ‚Äòpizza‚Äô on top of the ‚Äòi live for‚Äô sticker from the Afternoon Tea Memory Keeping Sticker Kit. I did not have a lot of photos to fill the last part of my week so I used one of the 4x6 filler cards from the Afternoon Tea Modern Memory Keeping Kit to fill the empty space, I added a strip of washi tape from the Afternoon Tea Travelers Notebook Memory Keeping Kit at the top of the card. When I use washi tape on my layouts I like to rip one of the ends to give it an uneven look. Once I added the filler card, I realized that I did not have room to add my journaling for Friday. I created a pocket behind my 2 photos and then cut a piece of white cardstock to fit inside. I used the stamp from the Afternoon Tea Travelers Notebook Memory Keeping Kit and stamped on one of the cardstock circle stickers from the Meadow Collection then used my sewing machine to attach it to the cardstock, then added my journaling. I love how it tucks behind the photos! We hope you are having fun planning your week using the Afternoon Tea Collection.
