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!

Small Stationery haul + 500 followers! :D

Hey there! :D I’m back with a little update! First of all I’d like to thank you all for helping me reach 500 followers on this blog! I never thought I could make it this far! A lot of you have been with me from the very beginning! Thanks for all the support! <3 It means the world to me!

A few days ago I went to a convention with my mother and grandmother called “Country Life” in Ghent. We’d never been there and decided to go and have a look. It was mostly about furniture and decoration, but there was this one cute stationery stand! It was the last year they would be there, as they’re closing up their store! They had some really cute stationery, that I just couldn’t pass by… :p Here are some pictures!

First of all, there was this super cute address book! I just love this kind of vintage look! :D Esecially with the passport & postcard on there! Since I have my own place now, I thought this could come in quite handy. ;)

IMG_1390
These, I could NOT ignore! :D I mean look at that cute chubby cheff with his fabulous moustache. How can one pass these by? They’re also super tiny! Honestly I wish I would’ve bought some more! :o

IMG_1393
These were the last things I bought at this lovely stand. I thought the memoblock on the left was pretty fun with the “huh?” :D And it just happened to be two for the price of one, so I grabbed the foodie one aswell!

Finding unique stationery like this really makes me very happy. :) I did not expect to find anything at that convention, but was caught by suprise by this cute stand. Too bad they’re closing the store.. well, that concludes this little update! More to come. :D

Bye guys!

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!

IMG_1251
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!

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!

So if you’re looking for an alternative to leather notebooks or just a cheaper dori in general, this is perfect for you!

Book (&Hobby) Convention finds!

Hey there!

About a week ago I went to a book convention in Ghent that didn’t only sell books at a very cheap price, it also selled some Hobby and crafting stuff! It was the first time I went to a book convention and I didn’t really expect many hobby related things… But to my suprise they had quite a few! I took my mother along with me since she can always use some books as a Kindergarden teacher! The day turned out to be a lot of fun and I will definitely go again next time! :D Here are a few pictures of the lovely things that I found there!

IMG_0859
These stamps were the first thing I stumbled upon! How awesome are these? :D I really like the font! And that Little crab saying “I was a little crabby!” is just perfect! Although I like the “oops Garden gnoom” a lot to!

IMG_0865
I also found this little foam stamp box! They were very cheap… But I really liked the doodly kind of stamps like the diamond, cake, lightbulb,… I thought they were really cute for journaling, planner decorating,… I’m not sure when I’m going to have to use the “Bad boy, naughty,…” stamps any time soon though. :p I also found those pink flower clips that I thought were just lovely!

IMG_0867
Then here’s the stamp that I just couldn’t look away from! How absolutely gorgeous is this stamp? I love the details (the trunks and flowers,..) It’s a pretty big one.. Probably the biggest stamp I’ve ever bought! I think any “stamp lover” can appreciate this kind of stamp! :D When I found this one, my day was already made!

IMG_0869
These were the last stamps that I couldn’t look away from. I didn’t have any “transportation themed” stamps so I thought those little ones would come in handy! :D Too bad it didn’t have a plane though. :o The baby stamps were really cheap so I bought those aswell! It came with a long, small acryllic block, which I really wanted.

IMG_0871
Here’s a book that I found about Calligraphy! I really want to learn more about it, and thought this book could help me with that. :) It has really nice illustrations !

IMG_0874
THEN I found this… I saw a bunch of books with instructions on how to use different kinds of camera’s! I didn’t remembe what mine was called exactly so I immediately called home! First my grandma picked up, but she didn’t understand what it was I was looking for, so then my dad helped me. and yes! There was a book for my camera aswell! :D And that price! In case you’re wondering my camera’s the Canon EOS 700D ! I use it to take these pictures and film my videos :)

IMG_0881
I FOUND MARVEL STUFF. :D I was really happy when I saw this sticker book! I mean 1000 stickers! Me and my boyfriend really like Marvel! Currently we’re following the TV shows “Daredevil and Marvel’s agents of Shield”! I recommend both! We’re also hooked on the Marvel lego game. (I enjoy smashing things with the Hulk a little too much :p) I also found those Spiderman cards which I found really beautiful. :)

I am hereby ending this post! I’m very excited about all the lovely things I found. :D and glad I got to share it with you! For those of you who’re waiting for the “Paperdori DIY video”, don’t worry, I haven’t forgotten! :) Have a great day!
