Planner and Planner Clips

This is my post for DigiPlayground but if you're looking for Tuesday Morning Sketches, please scroll down.  But since you're already here, you might as check this post out, too.  ;)

Happy New Year everyone!  Planners are all the craze lately.  I love them, I've always used them - but I usually pick up cheap journals or notebooks at Walmart or the dollar store.

I've actually been planning my planner since August: what did I want to feature, how will it function for me and can I combine what I use for work with my personal life, too.  Afterall, one melds into the other, right?  So I created my planner but I needed bookmarks and things to indicate "you are here" but I wanted them to match the bones of my planner and of course, they had to have charm.

I made clips!  These are so easy to do.  I started with a box of large paperclips that I found at the Dollar Tree.  Then using the bow from Hello Friend w/3D Bow card by Jamie Cripps and a flower from Filled Flower Basket by Carina Gardner I jazzed up these otherwise simply OK paperclips.  I did resize them to be much larger then they come.  Sorry, can't tell you how much larger I made them - I just kept going until I liked them.

There are tons of flowers available in the DigiPlayground shop that would work great for these clips.  Just be sure to use really strong adhesive like super glue or E6000.... and use in a well ventilated area.

If you'd like to see more of my planner, please take a look at the video I made for my sister.  I'm no Stephen Spielberg, you've been warned.  LOL  I hope I've inspired you in some small measure to look at your cut files and make something that's beyond the picture you see.

Have a creative day!
