Club Scrap Blog Hop - Big Top


Welcome back for October's blog hop!  We are celebrating with a festive and fun kit, Club Scrap's Big Top!

If you traveled here from Lisa's blog, then you are following the hop the hop! following the hop! If you've lost your way or just want to see all the links in one place, head over to the Club Scrap blog there to see a list of all the talented bloggers participating today.

I love it when we get a colorful and whimsical kit in the mail, and Big Top was no exception.  I decided that I needed something that I can use and see all of those festive colors every day, so I decided to make my own planner inserts using this kit!


There were so many wonderful colors and patterns that I could work into my pages so when I open the planner to start organizing my week, I had something fun to look at!

I started out by making a decorative dashboard for the front of my planner.  The circus quote from the Greetings stamp set was perfect - I think we all can relate to that quote!


On the back of the dashboard, I created a little pocket so I could slip in important things like receipts or memorabilia that I collected during the course of the week.


I couldn't find a two-page calendar I liked for free online, so I drew my own.  Using washi tape and stamps, I decorated these pages to stay colorful and to keep me on track for major events for the month.


I also created a dividing tab to show where my daily pages for October started.  The cutaparts in the Deluxe kit had the perfect tabs just waiting to be used!


On the back of my monthly divider, I decorated with washi and tried to write down all of the important dates for the month.  I plan to carry these over at the end of the year in to a perpetual calendar of sorts, so I don't forget anything next year!


My daily pages are pretty straightforward - a little bit of color, some stamping and washi, but mostly my to do list!


I have a set of planner stamps that I keep in the front of my planner to help keep me on track and I use my Club Scrap hybrid inks with the stamps to make my days fun to look at!


I hope to use pieces of the kits each month to create monthly pages for my planner and hopefully stay on track!  I hope you take some inspiration from this kit and if you are a planner addict, incorporate some Club Scrap into your daily life!

Thank you for stopping by!  You are on the last stop of the hop, but be sure to go to the Club Scrap blog to see all of the talented bloggers participating today.  Stop by next month when we are getting spicy with Moroccan Spice!
