Connie Hanks Photography // ClickyChickCreates.com // Make It Monday!Welcome to another Make It Monday! It’s been so long since I’ve been able to share a Plan with Me Video, but I’m happy to say I finally have a new one up on YouTube! I shared most of these stickers in the Make It Monday post last week, but now you can see them in action!

The video shows my process on a weekly layout, the February monthly layout and the February mission board! Lots of planner fun! Mixed media – ink, stencils, masking, stickers – I hope you find inspiration and have some creative time!

Do you set up yearly or monthly goals? The mission board has been fantastic for helping me look at my goals in a new way! My One Little Word for the year is FOCUS, so every month I focus on a few areas in life, and set 3 attainable-yet-making-me-stretch goals to reach towards. Works for me, so I thought I’d share!

What do you do when life gets so hectic and you can’t keep up? Fun stuff gets pushed down the list of to do’s. Sometimes they even get pushed out to the next month! And that’s why I’m sharing a Christmas Card post in January 🙂

MakeItMondayCircle-Jan16Welcome to another Make It Monday! I’m so excited to share a creative post with you this week! Even though Christmas has come and gone, I still wanted to share this cute snowman card! Isn’t he adorable?! I love when companies make great products and include awesome stitched detailing on their dies!

Connie Hanks Photography // ClickyChickCreates.com // Believe in the Magic of Christmas , snowman shaker card

 

I decided to make a simple white card with die cuts to make the shaker card, but I also wanted to add a little extra oomph, so I embossed the face of the card with a fun snowflake embossing folder from Darice. It really ties it all together!

And every time I move the glitter and beads in the shaker, I swear it gives the snowman a different face, lol! I didn’t create a video for this card, but you can see a similar style card in this video I made using palm tree dies!

I hope you enjoy this card and are inspired to create! Especially with all the snow certain parts of the US is experiencing, might be fun time to make some snowman shaker cards! I think this would be fabulous with a “baby it’s cold outside” sentiment! What do you think? What sentiment would you add instead of a Christmas sentiment? I’d love to hear in the comments!

MakeItMondayCircle-Jan16Thanks so much for stopping by!

Connie Hanks Photography // ClickyChickCreates.com // Hello You are Amazing - Ombre card - distress inks

MakeItMondayCircle-Jan16Welcome to another Make It Monday! I’m so happy to share this easy and quick card with you today!

One of my favorite card makers ever is Jennifer McGuire. And one of my favorite challenge sites is Simon Says Stamp! The minute I saw Jennifer’s most recent card, I knew I wanted to make my own version for the Ombre Challenge. I was inspired by the simplicity and elegance in Jen’s card and couldn’t wait to jump in! And the other thing that really inspired me was the Lasting Hearts card drive – a card drive Jen has organized for collecting cards for those who have recently lost a baby due to miscarriage. I can’t wait to make some more to send for the collection ❤

Connie Hanks Photography // ClickyChickCreates.com // Hello You are Amazing - Ombre card - distress inks

COLOR
I used three Distress Ink colors (Picked Raspberry, Worn Lipstick and Spun Sugar) and applied the colors directly onto the card stock.

HEARTS
Using the Heidi Swapp heart stencil and Perfect Pearls in Heirloom Gold, I created the background hearts onto the card.

SENTIMENT
Using the Lawn Fawn Stitched Hearts and Hello dies, I die cut the heart from vellum and hello from gold paper. I glued it all down and stamped a sweet little sentiment to finish the card.

Make It Monday // Dreaming of Planner Stickers!

MakeItMondayCircle-Jan16Welcome to the first Make it Monday of 2016! A new year means it’s time for a new planner! Planner girls, can I get an high-five on that?! Woot woot! How exciting is it to open up and start using a new planner?! Seriously, I just love it ❤

Of course, I’m still in love with the Inkwell Press Planner and I was lucky to get my hands on a 2016 Classic before selling out! I started with my 2015 Inkwell last spring, and by mid-summer, I was happily making stickers to decorate and organize my life!

Connie Hanks Photography // ClickyChickCreates.com // planner stickers - inkwell press - gelato collection

One of the areas that has really helped me is the monthly Mission Board. I’m able to set goals and keep them top of mind. Since they’re monthly, it’s a nice way to break my big goals into smaller, more manageable, and more attainable goals. What works for you to keep on track with your goals? I’d love to hear in the comments below!

Connie Hanks Photography // ClickyChickCreates.com // planner stickers - inkwell press - gelato collectionConnie Hanks Photography // ClickyChickCreates.com // planner stickers - inkwell press - gelato collection

Every month, I create a new set of themed stickers that compliment the color scheme in my planner, but have my personal look and flair 😀  There are over 30 sticker sheets designed each collection, so this is just a very small sampling! For January, I decided to have fun with hot air balloons, dreams, and more! To see the entire collection, head over to my Etsy shop here!

Connie Hanks Photography // ClickyChickCreates.com // planner stickers - inkwell press - gelato collectionConnie Hanks Photography // ClickyChickCreates.com // planner stickers - inkwell press - gelato collection

Along with the decorative stickers, I love using functional stickers to help keep my schedule on track!

And a new design I added this month are these cute “Plan Time” stickers! The Inkwell Press planners have 4 themes that rotate throughout the year, so these will be great throughout 2016!

If you’re interested in seeing the rest of the collection, head on over to the Clicky Chick Creates Etsy shop! I’m excited to work on more collections for 2016 and my goal is to share those here monthly! Can I get a woot-woot?! 😀

MakeItMondayCircle-Jan16I love the creativity in the planner world and I have to admit, that for me, it started in the crafty world, particularly in scrapbooking and cardmaking! So I’m super excited the my sweet friend Alison of Alison Day Designs is sharing a Valentine’s Day card project with you! And it’s not your typical red or pink…how about some blue with Alison for a Valentine’s Day card? Why not! Be sure to follow the circle and see what everyone is up to for today’s Make It Monday!
