How to Decorate Your Planner for the Holidays Using The Best Glue Ever


Today's design team post with ScraPerfect will also be my first entry in the Winter Coffee Lover's Bloghop that begins today. I had some more fun working with digital stamps (this time from Verve) for this planner spread. Follow along with me through the steps below...


The first step was picking my color scheme -which I do by choosing my patterned papers. The papers here are from a holiday paper pack that I got at my local ACMoore. I then laid out my planner pages and marked the spaces where I wanted the paper to go. To quickly trim the rectangles to the perfect size I used my Happy Planner Classic sized box punch. 


Next, I colored the images I had printed out using my Spectrum Noir markers and did some minor shading with a white Prismacolor pencil.


After fussy cutting out all the coffee themed images,  I adhered everything to the planner pages using the Best Glue Ever along with the No Clog Writing Cap.


To add some more color to my pages I also added planner stickers, washi tapes and some subtle ink blending on several of the blocks plus all around the page edges.


To make the large snowflake shine and shimmer, I heat embossed it using a clear glitter embossing powder before cutting it out. I then also used a tiny snowflake punch on the extra embossed cardstock to scatter throughout the spread.


Of course, I couldn't resist using some Wink of Stella and Stardust Gelly Roll accents -that's the bit of glimmer you see above on the whip cream and the letters.


Below, you can see the highlighted definition I was able to achieve by adding the white colored pencil on top of the alcohol markers.


That's it for me today -so remember that the Best Glue Ever is perfect to use in your creative planning because you only need a tiny amount and it then dries clean and smoothly so it won't wrinkle or buckle up your pages! Until next time, happy crafting with ScraPerfect!
