Today over at BoBunny Lynn and I are sharing our ideas on using Misc Me. The thing I like about Misc Me is, it is so versatile - heavens knows I tend to alter things to suit my needs anyway but the beauty of this is that all the hard work is done for you!
So what is Misc Me? Its a bit like Project Life really but different. Some of the paper ranges this year also come in the Misc Me range, like The Avenues, Zip-a-Dee Doodle and Elf Magic. It also comes in a couple of other ranges, Family is, and one of my fav ranges last year C'est La Vie. Basically pick the binder you want - these are 8x9" and then decide what you want your contents to include e.g: the calendar pack, the journal pack or go way different and use the recipe packs - then decide what page protectors you want and theres four different types of those to choose from. Simple eh? If you were after a clean and simple layout then its all done for you, just add your photos, recipes and journalling and you're done!
I was looking at the pack of Calendar Dividers and the Weekly Contents and thought they would be perfect for a diary for 2014.
For the cover Ive use an old album I had, covered it with background paper and randomly stamped with the Stained Textures stamp. The flowers are cut from one sheet of paper and added to a piece from the Noteworthy Collection, some are popped up with chipboard, others left flat to create dimension, before adding the year.
To separate each section for easier use I made a bookmark adhered at the back of the binder with a brad and decorated with jewels and a metal trinket.
At the back of the binder I made a separate section for notes and messages using a piece of card stock.
Easy peasy! All the work was done for me, I just had to come up with the idea and how I wanted to decorate it. It also gave me an idea. This week is my 10th wedding anniversary so I thought it would be nice to give something away :) Leave me a comment, or comment over at BoBunny and I'll do a random draw at the end of next week for someone to win the Diary!
Thanks for popping by!
