Paper Issues - Crate Paper's WONDER in the spotlight

morning, chickens!

there's a new product spotlight on the Paper Issues blog today, and i can't tell you how utterly SMITTEN i am with the new WONDER collection from Crate Paper.  it may appear kind of babyish and themey at first glance, but i assure you it's perfect for a KAJILLION types of projects.  heck, i scrapped train tracks!

everything you see here except the white card stock and alphas are from the Wonder collection...  my favourite parts?  the chipboard and acetate sheet, hands down!  but i think i need to stockpile the corrugated patterned sheet, because i absolutely love it!


seriously, this collection is SWOON-WORTHY.  for more inspiration, check out the Paper Issues blog to see what the rest of the Creative Team did to showcase it - and then be prepared to covet!

you can grab the goodies i used:

and whatever else is left, but HURRY, it's going fast!  THIS will save you some loot:

who knew i could be so planny?

evenin', chickens!  

so about a month and a half ago, i got this fabulous little gift box from the gorgeous and sensational Aimee Maddern, for absolutely no reason except that she freaking rocks.

in that box?  S'mores Oreos.  Reese's Oreos.  and THIS:

and now i'm all kinds of planny!
yep.  it's pretty!  and so, so functional! 

my style is a combination of planning and documenting/memory-keeping, so i'll write down the things that are coming up, but i'll fill in the details at the end of each day.  i'm loving The Happy Planner, and these are my favorite pens:

i started late, but i jumped right in.  at first, i was just excited to fill the lines and boxes with stuff:

and was enjoying the bright and colorful pages as my days filled up:

but then i started getting a little more matchy and themey with colors and supplies:

and i thought it was important to remind myself to keep my chin up!

remember the boring stuff, and hey, maybe have a little fun in the meantime!

i laid out this week in advance...

and you're gonna see more of this stuff.  because...  planner love, yo!
