April Planner: Focus Article

Taking notes: the planner-mania

Planning things sounds very natural to me. I plan everything! I carry my agenda/planner everywhere: I take notes, record appointments, sketch designs and or projects, write lists (tons of to-do lists); I even can’t remember when I started to do. Maybe I was 8, at the primary school, when my teacher saw me taking notes on my book and she was amazed. To me it was just a normal behaviour: if I wanted to remember exactly the focus points of the lesson I would do better to take a note. By this settings you may easily understand my passion for planners and stationery stuff. If I want to buy a souvenir, I go to look for a pen or a special pencil. Maybe a diary or something like that. I’m a convulsive hunter of stationery treasures.

My desk

Planners Line

A few years ago the planner-mania came into the digiscrap world. The spreading was easy given to the developing of hybrid projects like printables and cutting files. Now designers can design their own inserts: imagine the amazingness! One year ago I started making my Planner Collections too. Though not everyone is familiar with planners and how to use them and what are they for. First of all you should keep in mind that planners help you taking notes and planning things. That’s why they’re sort of tables and schemes with calendars and spaces to write notes. You may write the list of goodies you are going to grab from the supermarket, for example. Or maybe you want to write a WISH LIST, listing all the stuff you wish for the year, or for the month. You may list the books you wanna read or plan your diet, listing all the meals for each day of the week.

I am sure you got the sense! So, as scrapper, you should think at Planner Collections as a huge hybrid Bundle where to find sheets to print and add to your planner binder.

Original artworks and the final decorated planner

APRIL PLANNER: My Birthday

This is my fourth Planner collection of the year, April. I chose a “birthday-party-tea” theme because on April I will turn 32. This kind of collection is hybrid because it includes the traditional scrap kit (elements and papers) and also all those printable stuff like tabs, word bits, stickers, inserts and so on. So, you may use the kit as usual, to make your own layouts for the web or for the print, or you may integrate the kit to your Planner projects. Let’s suppose you want to customize a insert: you will use the embellishments and papers from the kit to do that.

The first thing you will do is printing the inserts and you will choose the format of the your binder: A5? A4? It’s up to you. My planner collections include always 4 formats: A4 – A5 – Personal and Heidi Swapp format. Watch the video below for a quick demostration of the workflow.

PRINT and Decorate

I printed A4 inserts and I decorated them with the stickers, word bits and other stuff from the printables. The inserts of this Planner may be used for all the months of the year and for all the years. The only exception is for inserts of Month Covers, because they show the April 2017 calendar. All the rest of inserts may be used for all the months, because they are generic and have generic calendars (from Monday to Sunday or from Sunday to Saturday); You may customize them by adding the day number on your own. The inserts pack includes also a numbers sheet to print and cut.

Paste the day number in order to create the month calendar.

 

BLOCKS: How to use them!

The block set includes both square and circle blocks. The square blocks are to decorate the month planner. You may paste them exactly on each block of the insert. The circle blocks are for decorate the Week Cover instead.

 

Use the blocks to emphasize the days. I put the “Happy Birthday” block on the day of my birthday.

The TABS: use them to specify TASKS!

I really hope you enyoyed this article. For any additional information do not hesitate to leave me a question on comments or by mail. Thanks!

I just wanna say that…

I love my job

I love my job. I love arts. I love the sense of surprise and amazing shock when a piece of art gets in touch with my heart, through my eyes. During latest years I felt the need to escape from my computer. Being kinda a creative nerd may have its own negative aspects and, most relevant, my physic and health were going to be seriously affected in a permanent irreversible way.
That’s why I started looking aroung, searching for new job opportunities and reasons to go out and exploring the “outside world”;

What I found is that I do truly love the outside world. I love the sound of nature, the sea, the city rumors, the kids playing in the park on a sunny day. I love everything around me.

Live more, share less

Staying in touch with the endless scenarios offered by this sole chance we have to travel this world, is for sure the most exciting experience we might do.

Now that I’m finally giving to myself the chance to live more “outside”, I can even appreciate more my life “inside”, at home, in those moments of pure nothing, when a few hours of relax, joint to good expresso and music, may become the most pleasant thing of the day.

At the same time I can even revaluate my job, which now appears as magnificient, because it makes me do what I like most, make me express myself without filters, giving me the chance to reach people on the other corner of the earth.

Making changes is no bad. It may give you two kind of responses: you may have the confirm that what you were doing wasn’t the right thing for you; or it may give you the chance to look with new eyes at your current life, revaluating it, giving it the proper good value. Maybe you needed to see how the “other possibility” was, before to understand how precious is what you have already.

That’s what happened to me. Now that I know that only designing for my scrappers makes me feel the happiest person, I’m no longer searching for new roads. I’m already where I should be. As I said, I love my job.

The Flame inside of me!

Hello my friends, today is the first Spring day and it makes me happy. Also, today is a special day because one of my closest friends is turning to 67. I made a card for her, by using papers of my last revamped collection “The flame inside of me” and I’m so happy to announce that I’ve recorded a video demonstration for you! A step by step video to guide you through the composition process of the card.

The revamped version of “The flame inside of me” is integrated with a few extra embellishments and papers. Also, I made coordinated pieces like borders, clusters and quick pages. It’s kinda “Valentine’s Day” kit, but spring is the month when love blooms, so I guess we’re still in time to talk of romance.

Collection overview

“The flame inside of me” is a kit from 2015 production and it was sold as scrapbox for the month of February. It’s a romantic kit, talking of passion and love. This new revamped collection is now integrated with coordinated packs and includes extra elements and papers.

Are you curious about my personal life or maybe something related to my work as designer? You may ask whatever you want! I will make a funny video trying to answer to ALL your questions! IT WILL BE FUNNY!!!

Personal Notes

I’ve spent beautiful days with my photographer friends, during last week. Photography is becoming more and more important to me and I’m lucky to have the chance to be part of a young photography association on my town. We have a lot of fun together and I’m still learning new things: it’s really so exciting. These beautiful landscape photos are taken from a popular place of the city, where a breathtaking view waits for you to be captured: Cristo Re in Messina, Sicily.

With love,

Val.

New collection is here + 2 freebies!

Dear friends, I’m sorry sorry sorry for not having sent you my newsletter yesterday. It was a bad day. I run, run, run. Time is always too short here. The positive aspect is that yesterday night I attended to a fantastic carnival dance party, my first one after school times in the 90’s. It was so amazing!!!! I had a lot of fun, we even danced in a small competition during the party!! You really can’t imagine, we were all dressed to tribal/african girls and danced a sort of disco-tribal song!! The crowd screamed, we were over the moon. (I am sharing a few shots below);

The importance of laughing at ourselves

What I learned, even by watching to other dancing groups, is that the power to laugh at ourselves is priceless, because it makes you even more interesting and funny to other people. I’ve seen young ladies and even not so young women with no joy. My group (the fitness group which I belong to) is full of ladies who love life and keep smiling despite of problems, healthy difficulties, money troubles. I love being rounded by positive people, those who are able to take a smile from you even when you’re sad or angry. Sooooo, let’s smile to life. I dedicate to all joyous people this new colorful and happy collection!

I turned this layout into a free QP for you! Click the image below to download:

Also, you can download a wonderful cluster from the shop!!

GREAT SALE: $2 KITS

Thanks a lot!! With love, Val.

Your enthusiasm is my daily bread

What a wonderful week I had. The creation of this festive kit has lead me into a happy atmosphere: I had a lot of fun, due to the videos we made to make the new type of “wanna win” game, I even had more fun than expected. That’s why, first of all, I’m here to thank you once again for your great support and enthusiasm. Your comments and messages are like the daily bread, they are the seed from whence ideas come.

The winner is…

Seems like we have a lucky winner today! Thanks to Cynthia Harper for the funny, original, perfectly suitable title for my new carnival collection! The game wasn’t easy, I admit. Because you didn’t have a lot of information. While you had just a few hidden suggestions, you couldn’t have idea about the general style of the graphics. So thanks for giving a try, I loved reading all your original titles!

Let’s see the collection

We are in that special moment when I say: let’s see the collection! And here we go, I’m proud to present you “LET’S PART-AAA”!!!! I mixed a lot of styles here but the general mood is for sure “mixed-media”, “journal”, “Project Life”;

Personal notes

This weekend i have attended to a professional course of Photography. It has been organized by the photography association for young italian emergent photographers, which I belong to. I had a lot of fun. I met fantastic people and I learned tons of new stuff. Photography is my life. Probably the art of preserving memories is the thing I love most.

Here I share a few shots of “behind the scenes” and of our session of street photography.

With love, Val.
