Blue birds fly

Well girls the Red Velvet Kit is up and ready for you to buy! I got mine and immediately started playing!



I devised a little tutorial for ya. It is simple and sweet. I hope you like it.



Supplies you will need (not in kit):
Scissors
Sharpie
hot glue gun
paint
small alpha stickers

Supplies from kit:
Love Elsie fabric paper
chipboard frame of your choice
Strip from bottom of sass paper (any one you like)
One of the buttons

1. I picked this planner up from Target in the clearance isle for a whole 2.00. You can also get them at the dollar store or any drug store. Paint chipboard frame to match fabric paper. Set aside to dry.


2. Cut your fabric paper to fit your planner. You can trace around it with the sharpie on the paper side or you can roughly cut stick it on and then cut around it to finish it up...That's what I did. Very simple and easy.



3. Cut 2- 1/2 inch wide and 2 in long strips from your left overs for the pen holder. Wrap them around the pen and cut only the paper from where it is going to stick to each other. Leave the paper where the pen goes thru.



4.Hot glue one strip to front inside over. Hot glue second strip to back inside cover making sure to stagger them. This is going to keep your planner closed with the pen.


Seen in this photo.



5. Hot glue painted frame to cover.( I distressed mine with a nail file then outlined it with my brown sharpie.) Thread button, knot, and hot glue to bottom right corner of planner. Hot glue paper scallop strip under frame.


6.Name and date your planner. I glued my alphas down because this is going with me.


Viola you are done!!!I hope you enjoyed this and if you end up making one pls leave me a link so I can see it!

Also the new Mojo is up! Go check it out! We have a super fab sponsor and the pages are out of this world. Here is mine.


I know San Fran is actually a place not a thing but hey that's ok its still a good thing to take pics of the place. HEHEHEHE! Ill get around it somehow right? Just for the record I ♥ Martha!

My surgery is set for tmw at 7:30 am. I wont be back till Sunday. I have lots to share when I get back so please check in on Monday or so. Wish me luck and if you pray pls do so for me! Thanks for all your support!
