New Year’s special!: Transforming a cheap plain planner into a unique one!

Hey there everyone!

First of all I’d like to apologize for losing track of keeping up with my blog. =o I’ve been working really hard at youtube and my day to day job aswell. (Yay, I found a job!) But with the new year that just started, I made it one of my many resolutions. ;)

Speaking of the new year! I’ve decided to make a video on how to turn a plain & cheap planner into a more unique and personalised one. This keeping in mind that not anyone can afford a filofax or expensive planner. There’s nothing more fun than experimenting and trying to be a creative planner on a budget!

The planner I chose was a simple planner from ‘HEMA’, one of my favorite stores. It was around 6 euros, so very inexpensive. Then I decided tot transform it! If you wanna see how I did that, watch the video down below! ;)

I hope you enjoyed watching the video! Maybe it gave you some ideas for planning on a budget too! :3 Thanks for watching and supporting me!

See you!

Decorating my Midori Traveler’s notebook inserts! + winner giveaway!

Hey there!

Before I talk about my new video, it’s time to anounce the winner of my “random clumsy giveaway”! :D The person that is lucky to receive the cards that I accidentally bought double (yep!) is: DOVIE!

Now for the video! :D

Those that follow me on instagram know that I recently got my first midori traveler’s notebook inserts! Which I am super stoked about. Although I love the inserts, the cover is a bit to plain for me. Therfore I decided to personalise them and decorate them to my hearts content! Here’s a picture of how they turned out on the front!

Yess, they are very colorful, just the way I like it! If you’re curious to see how the back looks like, I show you that in the video! Now what is the video about? I know some of you sometimes don’t know how to get started when it comes to decorating inserts, plannerpages,…  So I’ve decided to record how I decorated one of these inserts. I talk about the goodies I use following by me decorating the inserts. If you’re curious, here’s the video below! :D

That’s it for this little update! :D I hope you guys enjoy it and had a great weekend!

DIY Feltdori! (Felt traveler’s notebook)

Hey there! :D

I’m super excited and happy to share with you guys that I made my first “Feltdori” ever & filmed it! Even though I knew it was going to be clumsy (first time afterall) I decided to film it to put it on my youtube channel! ;) I’m very happy with how it turned out and feel like the color of the felt I picked matches well with my personality. :3

Those of you that are following me on instagram know that my “Midori traveler’s notebook inserts” finnaly arrived! :D You’ll be seeing lots of decorations of those on instagram in the future! ;3 More about those inserts later! But yess, so you can tell there has been some changes in my little plannerworld! But I am very happy! :D The biggest change is going from a passportsized dori (paperdori) to a regular size feltdori! But we’ll see how that goes. ;)

For now! Here are some pictures of how the “Feltdori” turned out!

IMG_1232
Instead of a charm, this time I added a cute yellow button with white polkadots! :D It definitely represents my love for polkadots doesn’t it? :p

A message to people from BELGIUM & THE NETHERLANDS!

Thehe here’s a little update, a bit different from the sort! :D

I actually decided to make a Facebook group for planners, crafters and stationery addicts from Belgium & The Netherlands! :D I have been wanting to do this for a while now! and finnaly did it! The reason for this is that I honestly know close to “nobody” in Belgium with whom I can share my excitement for planners, crafting and stationery.

Oh how I would love to share the joy and excitement when I visit a Hema store for example! :D My dream is for this group to grow and bring people together! :) One day I hope to even organize some planner addicts meets! Drinking some coffee and tea together while sharing our experiences with planners and tales. =)

I’ll just see how this goes! :D

So for the people from Belgium and the Netherlands who want to join, feel free! :D

https://www.facebook.com/groups/1631613843780192/
oh and you can definitely invite others who share the passion! :D

So this was just a small little update! ;)
I hope everyone is having a great week!

I’ve made some free journal cards! + decorating video!

Hey there!

Seeing my by blog and youtubechannel grow little by little thanks to everybody’s support really makes me a very happy person! :D So before I tell you what this post is about I want to thank you all for the kind support and feedback! ;) Every little comment and like counts to me! Because of this I’ve decided to put some more things into the ‘freebies’ section of this blog! Therefore I decided to design some free printable Journal Cards (Project life cards)! :D

I had a lot of fun coming op with simple doodle inspired black&white designs! Here is an overview of the journal cards I’ve designed so far and that I will put on the blog!

IMG_0799

It was a real creative challenge, but so much fun! You can see the desings are very simple, but you all know I love simple designs thehe. ;) Anyway the whole point of this doodly black&white theme is that you can add some color to the journal cards yourself! So, where can you download these? You can find them in the header: “planner freebies” section! It’s a word document on A4 paper (which you can change to lettersized paper) ! All you have to do is download them, print them on thick paper and cut them out ! :D Then they are free to use for whatever little project!

Want me to design some more free journal cards? Please let me know in the comments below! :D I would love to come up with more designs! Also, please share me your thoughts and if you like them! ;)

When you use the journal cards and post pictures on Instagram feel free to add the #Jessjc or #Jumpyjess ! Because I would love to see how you use these journal cards! :D

Now! I’ve made a video where I talk about the Journal cards and show you some examples of how to decorate them! Here is the video if you’re interested:

Again, let me know if you’d like more! :D Bye!

Get your custom planner drawn dashboard!! :D

Hey guys! I have some exciting news to share!! :D

So as you all know, I have opened my etsy shop about a week ago! And I have added something very special and planner related to my shop! Some of you might know that I love to draw in my free time! With this in mind I drew my own personalised dashboard for my Kikki K planner! I just drew a minime and added a cute background. It is so much fun having a personalised dashboard! So I was thinking, maybe some other planneraddicts would be interested in this? Here’s a picture:

IMG_0654

As you can see it’s a very simple drawing. :D I’m very happy with it though! I would love to draw lots of personalised dashboards for other planneraddicts like me. So I thought, why not share it on my blog!

Without further ado, here is a link to the Etsy listing for more information:
https://www.etsy.com/nl/listing/233174364/personalised-planner-dashboard-personal?ref=shop_home_active_1

For now it’s still a digital file. So if you purchase it you will get a pdf to print it at home and cut it to the correct size. ;) Although I am wondering if there are people who would prefer it laminated and sent to you? Let me know down below if you’d be interested in that, maybe I’ll add that to the listings!

Anyway, I was very excited to share this news with you all! I can’t wait to draw my first custom dashboard!
