Crafty Corner | Fall Decor

Yay its time for Fall...one of my favorite seasons! ;) My garden was totally overgrown by one single Chrysanthemum seedling so I trimmed it down and now I have a house full of beautiful autumn blooms, which totally motivated me to switch out my inspiration board for more seasonal cards. 

This is just a view of one corner of my office/craft room. I inherited the big old TV Expedit Cabinet and glued some cork board in the middle console area for another makeshift 'PIN' Board. But my favorite is the DIY chicken wire frame Inspiration Board I made. 

Using the latest Fall Printables available in my store Falling Leaves | The Printables and Happy Family | Journaling Cards and also some pieces from You are Loved | The Collection.

Just a close up with some bits and bobs. This little corner makes me so happy especially in the mornings when I walk in ready to work. How do you decorate for fall? 

Make your own Stickers | Print and Cut Tutorial

Are you as addicted as I am to stickers? I am going cray cray at the moment for these handy little sticky bits of prettiness. After some testing and playing around I have a fool proof system for making your very own stickers using your Silhouette and some nifty skills I will be sharing in this video.

I used the Printable Stickers available from my Plan with Me Collection available @TheDigitalPress.co

So what do you think? Still overwhelmed or willing to take the plunge and make your own? Let me know in the comments I love to hear from you! ;)

Fabric Midori | Setup & Notebooks

So I have mentioned I am on a bit of a planner craze and can admit its so addicting. Traditional Planners don't really work for me since I have been using the ah-mazing workflow method that Tiago Forte shared in his Skillshare class 'Get stuff done like a Boss' available here. And here is where the Midori enters. Its a Travellers Notebook/Artist Sketchbook/ Lists & To Do's/Calendars & Weekly Diaries etc. You name it you can use it for any of these and more. 

Fabric Midori

I have been using his system for a few months now and its changed my life...it has removed a lot of anxiety about endless To-Do's and never getting anywhere but always being overwhelmed. I kind of start panicking again if I have to think back on the 'before' phew lol thank goodness for this class yes I know going on and on but trust me it is that good! ;)

As a designer there is some things you can plan and do on the computer BUT some things like planning a collection just needs to be on paper. That tactile feeling is so important and gives you more freedom to express yourself and break out of your box. 

I knew from the start that I wanted a brain-dump list book that as a thought/idea pops up I write it down effectively clearing it from my mind and making me more receptive for other things. I also need a doodle/sketch book where I can sit down with a cup of coffee/tea and just let it out...even if I never use the images its good as a warm up exercise and to get my brain in the right mood. I also wanted a more formatted space for when I am planning out collections.

Here you can see how it looks when I open it. I have some lovely kraft manilla folders that I cut to size and added pockets so I can have some basics like stickers, washi, sticky notes etc. and well who ever can resist adding some eye candy?

I created my notebooks using regular printed paper and some printables I will be sharing in a later post. I used the same kraft manilla folders for the covers and decorated it with paper and alphabet stickers and some yummy scrapbooking goodness.
