tv, i love you...

Today I'm playing with Paper Issues' FREE September Printable. Every month, Paper Issues offers a free sheet of themed 3x4 cards, ready to print. This month they celebrate the return of the fall TV line up.

I snapped this photo of our kids as they watched a cartoon together on our tablet. We were visiting family and they were having a bit of down time. Together and quiet. I'll take it!

I used a huge variety of product on this layout, where I normally prefer to stick with just a line or two. The colors played so nicely together that I ran with it!

Background: OA Treasure Map
Patterned layers: EP Jack & Jill
Tag/number 3: FP Making Waves
Project Life card, Midnight Edition
Embellishments: Paper Issues Swag Bags

donuts with baba...

Today I'm participating in a product spotlight on the Paper Issues blog featuring PaperPOPs! PaperPOPs are an exclusive collaboration between Paper Issues and Jen of Parker on the Porch. Every POP is handmade here in the USA and they are incredible quality.

I've been using my, ahem, collection as page markers in my planner but, reserved this donut for this special Father's Day layout with photos from George's Pre-K "Donuts with Dad" event.

girls just want to have fun...

Happy weekend! I'm sharing this fun layout of our daughter today using the FREE August printable file from Paper Issues. Every month, a new sheet of printable cards is offered in the shop and this month has an awesome 80's throwback vibe.

I was immediately drawn to the hot pink of the "Girls Just Want to Have Fun" card and reached for the very pink 7Paper Amelia line to play it up! Perfect for these playful photos of our sweetheart playing with my sunglasses.

remember this...

This morning I am sharing a layout made for the Paper Issues product spotlight on the Crate Paper Wonder line. This line is whimsical, bold, playful and soft...all at once. Perfect for this photo of our daughter, curled up fast asleep under a chair in our living room.

you're cute times two :: new issue monday!

It's new Issue Monday on the Paper Issues blog and this time It's All About The Face! I loved these captures of our boys on July 4th as they experienced sparklers for the very first time. Their reactions and expressions were fantastic and I could not wait to document the memory.

Fancy Pants Designs Making Waves collection played so well with the photo colors without using a specifically patriotic line. This collection is definitely a new favorite! I used a few of the patterned papers along with some of the tag pack and ephemera die cuts.

planning with paper issues...

Today the Paper Issues blog has a post that makes me heart beat faster...a Planner Spotlight! I'm sharing my Plum Paper planner pages for this week and there is plenty of other inspiration as well. Hop on over to check it out!

The weekly spread here is how my week takes shape. During the weekend, I add my thin washi lines and write in events and to-do items that are unlikely to change. Things that are not set in stone get added on a post it note and then written in pen once I know (more or less) for sure they will happen.

This week I decided to work with aqua, yellow and bright green for my main colors. I marked off my sections as such:
  1. Top: daily schedule, events, school/work, play dates, etc.
  2. Middle (under the yellow line): daily tasks
  3. Third (under striped washi): dinner plans
  4. Bottom: FitBit step count, Listers Gotta List daily prompt
My left side bar checklist is for tasks that need to be accomplished but, not necessarily on a specific day of the week.

Decorating with themes/fun stickers comes in after I have a basic plan for the week outlined and I prefer my decor to be minimal. Keeping it simple allows me to see what is happening or what needs to be done with just a quick scan. Pretty is nice but, this is a working planner!

Most of my stickers this week came from the Paper Issues shop and include: Crate Paper Poolside, Simple Stories Summer Vibes and Life Documented, Me and My Big Idea Happy Planner and bits from the Swag Bags. Need a supply stock up? Take 20% off any order in the Paper Issues shop with code: JENBOOM

Thanks for planning along with me this week!


planning and pinspired...

Good morning! Today, I'm playing along with the July Pinspire Me feature at Paper Issues. I'm using the color palette this month to inspire my planner decoration for this week.  The stickers are from Me and My Big Ideas Happy Planner line as well as some that I designed and printed myself.

Here is the beautiful inspiration board put together by Leah. Play along with us, won't you! All you need to do is create a project based on this board and post/link up to the Pinspire Me thread in the Paper Issues {Friends & Fans} Facebook Group!
