Let's start with Lem.
Hello again planner babes. It's Lem here with a plan with me using the Novembers Magical "stargazer" kit.
So many elements from this kit are absolutely stunning! I plan to do a craft session with many of these pieces but for now I will be focusing on the VillaBeautiful planner sticker set from this kit.
Being that I use a personal size insert, I don't always get a chance to use all the stickers, particularly the headers. What I've done is placed the weekly days on top of the headers to and more color to the layout. I also feel like it makes the lovely font pop more.
As usual, then I continue with the washi strips, some decorative stickers, and lastly I add the functional where needed. l then go in and fill in my week starting with the more permanent stuff such as birthdays, appointments, notes etc. Anything that's not set in stone I use a pencil or fill out as needed. I do this process to both sides of my insert.
Lastly! I couldn't resist these absolutely stunning velum confetti!!! Wah! Just fell in love!
So of course I had to make a shaker using these beauties. I really loved the packaging as well so I kept that as part of it.
Originally I had the velum pieces inside with the the sequins but I found that the velum would stick to each other. I decided to glue a few of the pieces to the background of the packaging and left just the gold and silver sequins in the clear baggie. Side note; I used the baggie where the beautiful stargazer paper clip came in. I try to recycle where I can. Additionally, I added a few stickers on the outer part and sealed up the inner edges. I plan to hole punch and put it in my planner. Once I find my planner puncher that is. It's still boxed up somewhere.
I leave you all with one last thing ... Planner pocket happiness!!!
Wishing you all a warm and happy holiday! Till next time XoXo VBxLem

Hi VB girls! It’s Maria and I’m sharing with you some ideas on how I used my November kit from Shop Villabeautifful. I have to say it’s my favorite kit so far! (It might have something to do with the fact that it has purples and blues on it, my favorite colors.) It’s absolutely beautiful and makes me think of cool winter evenings. When I opened up the kit, I immediately fell in love with the rich jewel tones and images. Mesmerizing I tell you!
I decorated my weekly spread with the Stargazer Planner Decorating Kit in my Kate Spade Personal planner. I always start out by picking out some washi that matches the colors and feel of the stickers. When I saw the sparkly washi, I immediately grabbed it and started playing.
The planner set stickers and deco sheet were the first stickers I started using. The gems, florals, feathers and moons are absolutely gorgeous. There’s always so many stickers in her kits, it’s enough to decorate multiple layouts and projects too.
Tiffany’s Clear Tape Sticker Sheets are always a favorite of mine. In this kit, she paired it with a clear sticker sheet that matches perfectly! The top portion of the sticker sheet has a hint of pink and the bottom is a clear blue. They look so pretty together.
These next little pieces are so, so, so much fun! They are little clear stickers/die cuts with gold foiling on them. Oh my goodness, just too cute! I sat and starred at them forever when I opened up the kit. I especially love the little star shaped bottle…..I happen to have an actual bottle like it in my craft room. Love!
Tiffany always adds so many fun pieces to her kits. The paperclip from Have a Pretty Plan Co is shiny and pretty, and looks perfect with this kit. There was also a gorgeous pen that matches the colors of the kit so well. I love it all! Here’s a final look at my weekly spread.
I used the Crate Paper Moonstruck Ephemera that was included in the kit, to make one last little project. I hole punched one of the cards, added some more die cut pieces on top, taped one of her clear washi phrases at the bottom, and put in right in my planner. So fun!
I hope you girls have a wonderful Holiday Season and that 2017 is filled with many blessings to each of you!
