Heidi Swapp: DIY Flamingo Notebook


DIY Flamingo Notebook by @createoften

I've got the bug. The back-to-school bug. Don't get me wrong, I am not wishing away the summer by any means. I am excited for school supplies that have started to hit stores. Some of my favorite new items are the cute covered composition books, spiral notebooks, and new planners. My latest trip into the store I had my hands full of so many new journals, that I had to stop myself. Why couldn't I make my own?!! And even cuter maybe?

Heidi Swapp - Birthday Cake Flowers


Isn't the cake everything? When I was planning my daughter's birthday party I just saw flowers on the cake like this in my mind and designed the party around them. They were pretty amazing on the glittered edible polka dotted fondant cake.

Heidi Swapp says often, "Create your own joy." I read a quote recently that helped me understand what that really meant:

Heidi Swapp - June Memory Planner Pages

See inside my @heidiswapp Memory Planner June planner pages! by @createoften

I feel like every month ends and I look back at my planner and it looks a little different. I guess the process organically changes for me.  Every month my documentation works the same, but how I choose to add my photos or decorate is always focusing on one thing - time management. It's all about keeping this process manageable.
