Make It Monday // One-Layer Mother’s Day Card

Connie Hanks Photography // ClickyChickCreates.com // One-Layer Mother's Day card, simple stamping and watercoloringMakeItMondayCircle-Lav-Grn-APRILWelcome to another Make It Monday! This month has been quite busy with photo sessions (feeling super blessed about that!), so my crafting has been on the back burner, but I’m back with a great card today! I hope you enjoy it!

Back when I dove in head first into the world of scrapbooking and card-making (I was pregnant with my now 5-almost-6 year old!), I went through a big collecting phase and bought all kinds of yummy tools. Sadly, lots of it has been waiting to be used! When I was collecting, I was waiting for the “right” project or “perfect” photos to use with it. But now, I’m loving digging into my stash and finding old pieces to use in new ways!

If you’ve seen any of my crafty videos, you know I normally add lots of layers and dimension to my cards. But making one-layer cards? Way more challenging for me! I was inspired by Kristina Werner to create a card with all the prettiness in the center of a circular area, and yes, one-layer!

I cut out a circle from a piece of scrap paper and used that to mask off a circle in the (somewhat) middle of my card (A2 – 4-1/4″ x  5-1/2″).  I then stamped a few of the flowers (a very old set from Recollections) onto scratch paper and created masks to work with. I then started stamping onto my card, into the inner circle, overlapping the edge of the circular mask. I then used the flower masks to make sure the big flowers were front and center on the card. I stamped all of it using Staz-On so I wouldn’t have any problems with bleeding.

Then using a combination of Distress Inks, paint brush and water, I watercolored the flowers for a sweet and easy card! Once it was dry, I added a little Wink of Stella for some extra sparkle!

Are you enjoying the series? Our circle has shared great ideas and inspiration covering scrapbooking, card making, mixed media, digital scrapbooking, templates, paper crafting, party supplies, and so much more! Speaking of party supplies, I just created this watercolor Garden Party printable kit, inspired by my 8 yr old when she was wearing an outfit with these colors! I love when that happens 🙂

I decided to make a watercolor inspired set of party goodies that could work for a spring or summer birthday party but not just for kids. I really was envisioning this being ideal for birthday girls and women with class, elegance, style and great attention to detail! It just screams elegant garden party to me! Okay, maybe not “screams”, maybe more like a ladylike squeal-of-delight 🙂

My Etsy store is mostly stocked with physical items that get shipped to customers (lots of banners) and I love sharing my creations with customers throughout the US. But I wanted to created printable files that can be used to make a party banner, cupcake toppers, water bottle wrappers and straw flags anywhere in the world! How adorable are all of these?! The only tools you need is a printer, scissors and glue! But I love that anyone can feel like a maker and crafter using printables – it’s the best of both worlds, and super creative and easy!

Make It Monday // Planner Craze on the Cheap

Have you jumped on the paper planner craze? I’ve used my iPhone for my scheduling for years – iCal and Notes mostly, sometimes Reminders, but honestly? It just wasn’t working for me! I was feeling really overwhelmed at the end of the year and started noodling with the idea of going back to a paper planner. Lo and behold I stumbled on the paper planner communities out there and have been consumed / in love / aghast with all the YouTube videos on planners! Egads!

Connie Hanks Photography // ClickyChickCreates.com // Make It Monday, blog circleWelcome to our Make It Monday: “Organization” circle! You may have noticed some of our Monday’s have themes? Well today we’re chatting up organization! And what’s getting me organized these days? My planner! So, here we go…

As much as I’ve been wanting to splurge on the gorgeous gold foil Erin Condren Life Planner (ECLP), I am being practical and promised myself I’d see if I could actually stick to using a cheap planner consistently for 2 months before I splurge! I’ve heard it takes 21 days of repeated/consistent behavior to develop a habit? So far, so good!

I bought an inexpensive (on sale for $7) planner at Target the first week of January, and it really is helping me keep organized. I have so many ideas running loose in my head, and this is helping me corral it all into one practical place! What I love about the ECLP is the layout of the week, with days laid out in a vertical format. The one I bought is NOT laid out that way, but I customized it by adding washi tape down the center to create a “time scheduled” block and a “to do” block for each day.

Connie Hanks Photography // ClickyChickCreates.com // #planneraddict, paper, planner, organization, tips, strategies, suggestions, customizing, inexpensive, cheap

That was where I started. Then I decided I wanted to add some sort of a checkmark system for the “to do” section, and although I found some adorable stamps that I really want at Studio L2E, I’m again committed to being frugal. So I searched my mountain of stamps for an open square to create a cute checkbox, but knew I had to use the heart I found instead – it was a perfect fit!

Once I complete a task, I fill in the heart 🙂 I’m just a goofy dork that way! I should mention I’m loving the erasable Frixion pens. They’re super duper amazing!

Connie Hanks Photography // ClickyChickCreates.com // #planneraddict, paper, planner, organization, tips, strategies, suggestions, customizing, inexpensive, cheap

So that’s got me moving in the right direction. That alone has helped me organize my days with time commitments and to do’s for the week. So nice to not have to worry about forgetting something because it’s rolling around in my head with a million other to do’s instead of nicely planned in my planner 😉 Of course there are the occasional slip ups, but it really is helping me plan out my days.

Every night before I go to bed, I review my planner and see what I have going on the next day as far as scheduled obligations, what “to do’s” I may have not completed that day, and what needs to be done the next day. Then I review it again first thing in the morning. It’s really helping me get my day started on the right foot and certainly end the night feeling more accomplished than I started the day!

The other areas I needed to get a grip on included: 1). my creative team responsibilities at Capture Your 365; 2). an editorial calendar for my Make It Monday blog circle with a group of fabulous creatives (who are also my inspiring creative friends!); and 3). projects that I wanted to get to, but didn’t have an actual deadline.

Too many times I feel like my dog chasing my tail. We all know how easy it is to jump on the computer and get sidetracked. You jump on to pay a bill and an hour later you’ve forgotten about the bill but caught up on Instagram, answered a couple emails, and checked in with a couple of Facebook groups. Yup, easy to do. Unfortunately, I tend to do that with a lot of my life, and have a lot of half-baked crafty, bloggy and photo projects. Having my tasks written down is helping me keep focused…yay!

When I bought the planner in January, it came with November and December 2014 month views (2-page spreads) that I wasn’t going to use. I figured these pages were perfect for a “Project Ideas” page, so I covered up the month and days using washi tape, creating a grid to write in projects. Then, I realized the removable stickers we used to use when we had our retail businesses would be great to use for these projects so I could move around the projects! I add them to my evolving list and once the project is complete, I move it to the date or week I completed it.

I color coded my projects based on my Etsy store, Society6 store, Craft Ideas for the Blog, Planner/Organization, YouTube and more!

Somewhere I saw Washi wrapped around playing cards and thought that was a great idea instead of carrying a ton of rolls of Washi! I have a great assortment without lugging them all around! I have these secured to the inside of the front cover. I added Washi to the bottom as well so the cards don’t move around.

The last piece of organizing I’ll share with you is my grocery list and meal planning. Remember how I said I used Notes on my iPhone? I would usually write my grocery list on there, so I had quite a few to go back to reference. I made a master grocery list in Excel and print 3 weeks worth on one sheet. Before I head to the grocery store, I get my meals planned for the week and cross out the items I don’t need to purchase. I use more removable stickers to plan our dinner menu for the week, and can move them around as needed. I use some crafting markers to customize the round and rectangular removable stickers. I like love color and coding this way helps me keep it pretty AND organized!

So I’m sharing all these ideas with you in case you’ve had any of the same hiccups I’ve hit along the way. Maybe my grocery list and meal planning idea will help you develop a more efficient system for you and your family! Perhaps my Editorial Calendar format will help you organize your creative projects a little better. One project I haven’t made yet has been inspired by my sweet friend Cara at the Hooting Pirate – she created a pen holder with Duct Tape and a bullfrog clip. Super cute! Be sure to check it out here!

And the last piece I’ll share is a little love note I found in my planner from my 8-yr old. Color me happy and lucky in love ❤ I decided to use some of the washi tape to draw attention to that sweetness!

Connie Hanks Photography // ClickyChickCreates.com // Family Resolutions, goals, scrapbooking, layout, clouds, hikingConnie Hanks Photography // ClickyChickCreates.com // Make It Monday!Welcome back to another Make It Monday! It’s a new year, and with it comes new goals, resolutions, hopes and dreams!

On New Year’s Eve, my family and I spent a relaxing and lovely evening at home, eating, dancing, playing a board game and talking about our resolutions. My girls are 8 and 5 (5-and-a-half, to be more precise!), so the goals included sharing and helping, which were really sweet to hear ❤

Connie Hanks Photography // ClickyChickCreates.com // Family Resolutions, goals, scrapbooking, layout, clouds, hiking

One of the goals we all discussed was being healthier, and since it was a beautiful morning, we decided to head out as a family and hike a trail! Before kids, my husband and I loved doing that more frequently, but it had been way too long for either of us! It was beautiful and our girls really loved the outing.

Connie Hanks Photography // ClickyChickCreates.com // Family Resolutions, goals, scrapbooking, layout, clouds, hiking

Does the photo of the 5 of us look familiar? I posted it last week, right after new year’s, and was prompted to take the photo from the “Good Morning” prompt at Capture Your 365. I knew immediately I wanted to create a scrapbook layout with our family selfie! Most of my pages are of my girls, but one of my goals for this year is to get my husband and I on the pages a bit more frequently 🙂

Connie Hanks Photography // ClickyChickCreates.com // Family Resolutions, goals, scrapbooking, layout, clouds, hiking

I knew exactly the paper I wanted to use for the layout – it was kraft and had clouds all over it. I searched my stash and suddenly I realized I didn’t have it. Did I think I had bought it but really didn’t? Nope. I had bought it. Turns out I had already used that paper! Oops! So, I found another cloud paper I loved and decided to make my own cloud paper to complement it. I used a stencil, blending tool and white ink. Easy, peasy!

Wanna see how I made the cloud background paper? Check out my video! And I’ll have a full process video up later this week sharing how the entire layout came together!

Connie Hanks Photography // ClickyChickCreates.com // Family Resolutions, goals, scrapbooking, layout, clouds, hiking

Although this layout is about our family goals, I’m also working through some personal goals. One of those is to create a scrapbook layout weekly! Yes, you read that right! I have lots of stories to share and want to get them down on paper before they’re forgotten. Other goals involve growing my blog and businesses. So expect more here at Clicky Chick Creates! More routine posting, series posts, more tutorials, too! Some will focus on crafting, some on photography. I’m excited and hope you are too! Are there are any specific questions you have or posts you’d like to see? Let me know in the comments!
