April Cookies - Take 2


The second challenge for April over at If You Give a Crafter a Cookie is all about bees and daisies and black,white and yellow !! Challenge # 92 will be live from April 19 - May 2 and we hope you will take a look at all of our projects and also think about linking one of your own. Our sponsor this time is one of my very favorite companies - Bugaboo Stamps. I was inspired to use one of their digis for my project. 


For those of you that don't know me well, I am a bit of  planner person. I'm not dedicated to 1 type of planner or planner supplies. This year I have been using 2 planners - a KikkiK and a Daphne's Diary. For this challenge project, I decided to create a planner layout with the digi Girlz-Flowers . My 2018 Daphne's Diary Planner is absolutely beautiful to start with. It has pockets, stickers. bullet pages and amazing designs. I made my layout for the week of this blog post and hope you are inspired to get out your planner and be creative !!




  • I printed the digi and cut the image to fit my page. I also printed it out on some scrap patterned paper and fussy-cut that to make her skirt. 
  • Using my favorite Faber-Castell PITT Artist pens , I colored the digi stamp. 
  • I had printed the digi several times and cut out a few daisies to use on the opposite planner page .
  • I will admit that I am a sticker addict from way back to my childhood. For these planner pages, I used a fun Mini Sticker Table from Carpe Diem - Bloom. I'll even admit that I love this sticker book so much that I bought 2 !!
  • My favorite grass washi was placed across the bottom of the Bugaboo Digi and I made a scalloped border from my Sizzix "On the Edge" Scallops Die by Tim Holtz and placed it at the top of the digi. 
  • Black and white Candy Buttons from Basic Grey were used for the center of the daisies and completed my layout. 


For a chance at a prize from Bugaboo Stamps, link up a project from April 19 - May 2.  Bugaboo Stamps has some of the best coffee-themed digis too and you all probably know by now how much I  love anything coffee-related !! Take a look at the Challenge Blog for inspiration from my teammates. Leave me a comment here and let me  know what planner you use and where you find inspiration for your layouts. I'll choose someone at random to receive some fun planner supplies !!
