Hello Planner Girls, today we have two of our Design Team Members - Lem and Maria showing you how they used the Sweet Life Decorating Kit.
Let's start with Lem
Hello my sweet planner loves. It's Lem here with a plan with me using the "sweet life" planner kit. Yes it's all about the sweet tooth today. After all, "the best things in life are sweet". wink wink*
This kit is full of vibrant pastels, my absolute favorite! The colors in this kit makes me think of sherbet ice cream LOL. Yum yum!!! ... But seriously though, Can we just take a moment and praise Miss Tiff! Her kits get better and better every time! I can't get enough of this kit. Everything about it is perfection!
To begin my plan with me, I started with my weekly spread using the stunning planner stickers. They are a perfect variation for decorating and having a cute but functional planner. These VB planner stickers definitely have a little of everything.
I usually always like to start with the days of the week followed by the clear Washi strips (my favorite), and from there just continue with more of the decorative and functional stickers. Along side my weekly spread I always like to have an over view of my week. Using a grid personal size paper, I used the functional stickers to customize it to my liking.
Let's jump into the ephemera in this kit! It is just so tasty!!! Since I use a personal size planner I don't always get to use them on my spread but surely always find ways to include it in my planner.
Pocket Happiness is always a must! Since my Domino FiloFax technically doesn't have traditional pockets I've just attached the cute journal card with a paperclip and used the phone die cut just to liven it up more. I also made a fun dash board that holds some of the water mark sticky notes that came in the kit. Sticky notes ALWAYS come in handy.
Finally, my beautiful VB addicts I leave you with my favorite , this cute magnetic clip/mark. I used an old magnetic banner clip that I had laying around, attached it to the tag that came with the kit, added some decorative pieces and "sweetness" behold , a super cute magnetic mark to easily access the current week. Just love how it turned out.
That is all for now. Till next time my sweet planner friends! Hope you have been sweetened today! XOXO Lem

Hi my sweet friends, it’s Maria here! Everyone that knows me knows that I’m a pastel-lover at heart. Pretty soft colors melt my heart, and when you add sweet images to that…well, its perfection! The January “Sweet Life” Planner Decorating Kit is absolutely gorgeous!!! The colors and images are so yummy, I had to put it on a two-tiered cake stand.
When I receive one of Tiffany’s kits, the first thing I do is decorate my personal size weekly layout. After laying down some of the shimmery silver foil Doily washi, I used the weekly word stickers to highlight each day. The kit comes with a watercolor sticky note pad that I fell in love with as soon as I saw. I wanted to use it not just as a sticky note, but also to decorate my week. So I took out a banner punch that I own, and punched out several banners from the sticky note. I used them to make a banner at the top, and then put some throughout the layout. I did the same thing with one of Tiffany’s Deco boxes to alternate the patterns.
These stickers have to be some of my all-time favorite stickers EVER! (I know I say that every time, but they really are.) I had so much fun using the Planner Set Stickers and Headers to add some sweetness to my pages. And those VB Exclusive Sweet Life Ephemera….. simply beautiful! Its hands-down my favorite piece of the kit!
The next projects that I made are MY FAVORITES! I used the Fuse Tool to make a shaker paperclip from the cutest coffee cup ever! I added some fine and chunky glitter in colors that match the kit, and fused it closed. I also took a plastic planner sleeve and put the card that comes in the kit in the bottom, and some ephemera, glitter, and sequins in the top. I glued two macaroons together so that you can see them on both sides, and layered some ephemera and a doily on the bottom. This is going to have a special place in my planner in the front, so that every time I open it, I see the sparkly awesomeness! Opposite it, I punched holes in an envelope and layered ephemera and a doily to add some more prettiness.
In the kit, came this beautiful title card that fits perfect in my planner. It’s made on sticker paper, so I peeled the back and glued it to the VB cardstock card that comes with the stickers.
I can’t forget to mention two other things that came in this kit….this dessert fine tip pen and a paperclip from Mahal Made of a macaroon. So much cuteness, I can hardly stand it.
Shop Villabeautifful Kits are jam-packed with so much goodness, it’s hard to stop making pretty things. Enjoy this kit my friends, I can’t wait to see what you create!
