Snarky sentiments found in the Bookish collection are a hint of sassy, but also very helpful when it comes to memory planning. Sentiment cards, sassy or not can help you in the planning process of your layouts.
Natasha Pytlik: Sentiments Cards in Your Memory Planner
I like to think of these snarky sentiments¬†as prompts for my week. This comes in handy for those weeks that I feel like I don‚Äôt have any ideas on where to start with my layout or overall it was a tough week and a little humor seems like it would be helpful.
To start, I went through all of the sentiment cards or die cuts from the Bookish Collection
¬†and selected the ones that I thought were either cute, funny or both. I put them aside and thought about my week to see which would fit best. I placed these down first to set the scene for the week. Next, I included my photos and then journaled afterward. I like to mix and match items from different kits from Cocoa Daisy so for this layout, I have used journal cards from the Bookish Modern Memory Keeping Kit
alongside a few of the quote die-cut cards found in the Bookish Classified Planner Kit
Another reason that I really enjoy incorporating the sentiment cards into my projects is it gives me an opportunity to experiment with different types of layouts. Generally, this means I design the structure to have a larger area dedicated to deco versus sticking to the set format on the page.
For this week, as I wasn‚Äôt feeling my best and navigating life with chronic pain, I wanted to tell that story and vibe of the week on the right. On the left-hand side, I use days of the week stickers from the Bookish Planner Add-On Kit¬†and set up my photos for a weekly recap. This type of layout has a similar feel to the popular Hobonichi weeks layout but on a much larger scale.
I would love to know what are your favorite types of snarky sentiments to use! How do you like using them in your projects?
