Ephemera's Vintage Garden - My Crafty Life - Part 3

Hello, my sweet friends!

Before I begin sharing today's project I must give you all a BIG thank you!
Your positive response to my last post, both here and on facebook, was overwhelming!
I sure do appreciate you all! :o)

* * * * *
I'm back today to share the third and final part of the My Crafty Life kit 
from Ephemera's Vintage Garden.
 If you missed Part 1 you'll find it right HERE.
Part 2 is right HERE.
This kit is found in the "Planner" section of the store, right HERE.
Part 1 was all about organizing our crafty life: DT work, swaps and challenges. 
Part 2 is all about keeping our daily home life organized.
Part 3 is all about our personal health: mind, body and spirit.

The planner pages measure 5 1/2" X 8 1/2". 
If you have never used a printable kit before, or if you like to conserve ink, then this is the kit for you. 
The entire kit prints with black ink. 
The first section of my planner was black on blue, 
the second was black on yellow, 
and this section is black on pink.

Let's begin!
As with the other sections, it begins with a divider. 
I fussy cut the wreath and added an appropriate Scripture verse.
Then I added the "my self" from one of the pages.

Again, this page mimics the previous sections.

Look at this great bucket list's so long!
Then there's a wonderful health checklist for body, mind and spirit.

I really like the procrastination worksheet.
I'll have to print off a few of those! lol 
"What feeds my soul" is another fantastic thing to ponder and record.

These are such pretty journal pages.
I REALLY like the gratitude list!
I clipped a "today" list here.

I love to record Scripture and quotes, so these pages are great too!

One last page on the left. I clipped a journal card to it.
On the right is another bookmark, like in Part 2.

Now I will finally show you the fun binder I'm using.
It's an Avery binder from Walmart for less than $7.
It houses this great planner perfectly.
The front cover is a clear pocket. I simply slipped this pretty page into it.
It is held together with a wonderful Tim Holtz elastic that is attached to the back cover.

There is a pocket on the inside front cover.
The perfect spot for extra envelopes and tags.

The back cover also has a pocket. 
There was printed information about the binder but I just adhered the pretty tag over it.
Then I added another one to the front pocket.

Then I had to dress up the spine a little bit.
I added a Tim Holtz hitch fastener to hang the pretty bead tassel from. 
Finally, I added a pink seam binding bow!

Here's a closer look at the hitch fastener.
I just punched a hole in the binding and put it through.
Then placed an "n" from the collection on the other side to cover the brad prongs. 

So there you have it!
The third and final section in my new planner. 
You probably noticed that I have left it all blank for these photos.
I wanted you to see that it can be TOTALLY customized to whatever your needs are. 
Pages can be added...or omitted...however you like!
Debbie has done a really incredible job of designing this planner!
I'm looking forward to filling each and every page!

Wowza, wowza! It has been a delight to see this come together. There are some really cool pages in here. You're going to have so much fun filling this up and just enjoying using something so wonderfully handmade. Hugs!

I really love the personal section of this planner. I've never seen that in a planner before. I always have good intentions of keeping a planner for the year, but after a couple of months it usually goes by the wayside. The fact that you can customize this one might help me keep it up.

Susan M said...

It's just gorgeous Nancy , inside and out ! The bead tassel and bow are so lovely ! Love the fact that the kit prints out in black ,makes it so useable. It does look too nice to write in though!

Kat W said...

This is really beautiful and I'm sure it will bring you so much pleasure as you use it :-)
I'm still in the process of creating my very own planner but will it make me more organised?! I'll have to wait and see!

Hugs, Kat x
