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,… Β 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!

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
IMG_1235
I’m very curious to know what you guys think of my new feltdori? :D Let me know in the comments below!

Now for the video! Here’s a link to the DIY video on how I made it from scratch! If you decide to try it out I wish you good luck! And as always, I would LOVE to see how your feltdori looks like! :3 It’s always fun to see you guys making things from my DIY videos!

DIY Snailmail envelope decorating!

Hey there! :D

I’m back with a video! A lot of you know that snailmail has been super populair lately! You see it around on blogs, instagram, pinterest,… One of the fun things about swapping snailmail is the decorating part! Giving your snailmail personality and charm. :) It’s especially fun when you work with a certain theme! That way it can be a creative challenge! :D I decided to make you guys a video where you can see me decorating some snailmail! Of course this is just an example. ;) Be creative, put your personality in it! :D I’m sure it’ll put a smile on the receiver’s face!

Here’s a picture of 3 plain snailmail envelopes that I decorated!

IMG_1149
I made a “Superhero” themed one, a “random things” themed one and a “flower” themed one. The one with the flower theme is the one I’ve put together in the video! :) So you can see the process of that! The superhero one, I just HAD to make as an example, since I love them! :D And lately I’ve been collecting some superhero stickers, so yeah. ;) For the envelope with “random things” I used my DIY cat stamp! :D You can see the envelopes more up close in the video! ;)

I hope you all enjoyed the video and blogpost! :D Have fun decorating and swapping snailmail! :3

Bye!

My HEMA handmade Stamps!

Hey there!

In my last video & blogpost I shared with you some of the things I bought at HEMA and a craft store! One of the things was the DIY Stamp set! So of course I would love to share with you the stamps I made! :D Here’s a picture!

IMG_0969
I made these stamps out of 2 rubbers! I started with the tag one! :D I thought it would be fun to have a tag stamp to use for journaling, snailmail & more! I have to say , it was quite tricky at first! (also since I’m not a perfectionist) With the leftover from that ruber I also carved a “Tape stamp”! With the other rubber I carved a big cat and a little flag stamp! The stamp and tape stamp would definitely be fun to use in different colors! :D I didn’t want to throw away leftover rubber, therefore I carved those small ones too!

Making my own stamps was a lot of fun! :D Although I did hurt myself in the process.. :p (suprise, suprise)! I would definitely recommend you try out this DIY stamp set! It’s so much fun! I would love to see what kind of stamps you all make! ;) Well, that concludes this little stamp making update! You will definitely see me using these in the future, and probably making more! Have a great weekend! :D

Ps: That cute card set giveaway is still going on! Check out the post about it here:Β https://jumpyjess.wordpress.com/2015/07/15/craft-store-hema-haul-giveaway/Β
