Make It Monday // Plan with Me May

MakeItMondayCircle-RED-CORAL-MAYWelcome to another Make It Monday! I hope you celebrated a lovely Mother’s Day this weekend with your loved ones near and far! I’m sharing a fun post with you today featuring my new Inkwell Press Planner and a video sharing how I set up my week featuring lots of stamps!

In my last Make It Monday post I shared that I was loving digging into my stash from years gone by and using stamps that hadn’t received very much (if any) love. Well, it happened again as I reached for old stamps to use in my new planner!

Have you heard of the Inkwell Press Planner (IWP)? I was torn between the IWP and the Erin Condren (ECLP) planners, and decided to make the jump with the Inkwell Press. I loved the idea of being able to break my days into segments that I needed, and the overall monthly goals page, although I haven’t set up that page yet!

I created a process video sharing how I set up my spread for the week. I ended up mostly stamping and not using very many stickers. I have quite a collection of those too, so I’ll be digging into that stash for an upcoming video. I’m sure there are some gems in there!

Connie Hanks Photography // ClickyChickCreates.com // Make It Monday, blog hopBack with another fun Make It Monday! Do you remember the True Scrap classes I’ve mentioned here? True Scrap Events are LIVE online classes full of inspiration, community and fun! Well, we just had True Scrap 6 earlier this month and one of the instructors totally inspired me with her wall display! Layle Koncar taught a fabulous class on interactive mini books, and in the intro of her video clip shared a peek in her studio. She had a similar display and I knew that was exactly what I needed in my space! She actually taught at True Scrap 5 and I had spied that wall display back then, too! I’m so glad I finally got it on my wall and off my to do list!

I’m able to display five 12″x12″ layouts, along with 4 to 5 cards or tags. It’s a little hard to see with the glare, but it really looks awesome! I can’t help but stare at the wall when I’m in my craft room!

The page protectors become side loading and super easy to work with. So what did I use?

Measure out how long you want the telescoping curtain rod to be, then mark where you want the mounts to be – measure out both width and height – you don’t want one side higher than the other! Add your hooks/rings and clips to the rod before you secure it in the mounts. Tighten up the mounts after you place the rod where you want it. Add your layouts to your page protectors SIDE loaded. Clip your layout and page protector onto the rod and enjoy your creations!

I love that I’ll be able to easily swap out layouts, easily displaying new creations. I know my daughters love when I make new pages and now they’ll be able to enjoy them by just walking into the room! I might even do this on another wall in the house to display their art pieces – we have a pretty amazing art program at their school 🙂

14novackermanfreeI can’t help but point out that not only are the projects in the True Scrap classes full of inspiration, but the instructors themselves are amazing! Another True Scrap instructor that I just adore, not only for her projects, but truly for the amazing person she is and how she incorporates faith into her art, is Stephanie Ackerman! She’s teaming up with my friend Lain Ehmann and offering a FREE ONLINE CLASS! Do yourself a favor and sign up here… it’s FREE!! In the scrapinar on November 3rd, Stephanie shares how to turn ordinary text into inspiring, faith-filled works of “Heart!” So excited!
