Here are the photos of my interpretation of the UN-Planner. As some of you know I didn’t purchase the kit, but instead made my own binders from vinyl place mats. This is working out pretty well for me, and I am still tweaking it to get it just right.
As for the insides, even though I downloaded the files, I don’t have the budget to print them out. So, again, I am making my own. I used embossed card stock, in black, brown, kraft, white, turquoise, and purple for my monthly dividers. Using the luscious card stock from Prima: Timeless Memories, A4 Paper Pad, I made my monthly calendar pages (which are fold-outs) and my weekly views. To save space, I put the Dare2B’s on the back of my calendar fold-outs and my List Ten’s on the back of the first week view of each month. I haven’t decided, yet, what will go on the back of the other weekly views.
I have been decorating my own hole reinforcers to blend with the papers I’m using. To do this, I am using Gelatos, blending the colors with a make-up sponge (loving my Gelatos!) and then heat setting them. I may do something a little more adventurous later on.
For the PAC’s, I am using gesso coated playing cards. I also cut up parchment paper roll boxes and aluminum foil roll boxes into 2″x2″ pieces and coated them with gesso to use as my tidbits.
The tags are a mix of store bought, die-cut and hand cut from colored card stock.
On the back of the monthly calendar pages (not the fold outs), I glued a legal sized envelope (cut in half & colored with Gelatos) on which I adhered a square of decorative paper, with my favorite tidbit for the month attached.
In between the weekly views I have one-sided decorative pages, the backs of which I have coated with, you guessed it, gesso, ready for me to do some art. The pocket page protectors, I am still using as holders for my ‘items-in-waiting’, like the tags I made, bought and die-cut, tidbits, PAC’s, etc.
So, without further ado, here are the photos for January (so far, I will add more as the month progresses).
JANUARY 2016: Going out an a limb. Try something new.
Week 1: Incorporate 16 into our art.
