Hi planner friends! Vanessa here with you today to show you how I used the new Bloom & Grow collection in my Robin’s Egg Carpe Diem planner. The collection is perfect for Spring and the little garden gnomes are just too cute!
I like to have everything match, so I gave my planner pockets a quick clean up and restocked them with new journaling cards and Bits & Pieces from the Bloom & Grow collection. I love to use the Bits & Pieces as decor in my planner, but also attach them to paperclips with a little adhesive.
My planner would not be complete without a new pocket folder from the beautiful Bloom & Grow cardstock. To make it extra cute, I glued a few ephemera pieces and stored some planner stickers for later use.
For the monthly spread, I dressed up the top of the pages with a small strip of Red Dot cardstock from the Bloom & Grow collection and the SN@P! Color Vibe alphabet stickers.
On the second half of the monthly spread, I used more Bits & Pieces to dress it up with more color. Don’t be afraid to have ephemera pieces peeking up from the top of your pages. Your Carpe Diem planner still protects it and it makes your page easier to find. I also glued some the adorable Bloom & Grow Bradz onto paperclips to section off pages in my planner.
Don’t limit yourself to just using planner stickers on your weekly spread! I love using the Bits & Pieces on my pages to give it a pop of color and to make planning more fun.
I always save the trim along the bottom the cardstock that shows the reverse side of the paper and use it as a washi tape or border, as I did with the little garden gnomes.
I hope you have fun creating beautiful planner accessories and pages with the Bloom & Grow collection. Keep an eye out for the full collection to hit retailers in mid-May 2016. The vibrant colors, florals, and adorable garden gnomes make my planner more cheerful and brighten my day!
