I'll admit, the front of my planners are usually sparse and boring... I'm always at a loss for how to fully utilize/decorate the space. As I was switching between planners recently, I suddenly had an idea... I could use the adorable Felicity Jane patterned papers in place of the notepads that I *never* use to add a personal touch!
I quickly measured the paper pads (6cm x 9cm) and trimmed some patterned paper strips to 6cm x 18cm (doubling the length, so I could tuck it behind in the slit pockets). Then, I just folded the patterned paper in half and decorated the fronts.
The size was perfect for holding one of the cute tags from the Happy Day cut-apart sticker sheet. Here I used the soft gingham print and stamped a little message from the Happy Day stamp set. I added the fun cherries, and used washi strips to "hold" the tag as well as pretend ribbon through the top of the tag.
Always trying to achieve function as well as "cuteness" I thought this spot would be a perfect place to hold some sticky notes. These strawberry-shaped sticky notes were from my stash, but worked perfectly with the kit's theme.
Flipping through my kits' contents, I realized these white tags would be another great way to hold some extra sticky notes or just to have on hand to jot a quick reminder. I added some message stamps from the Happy Day set.. so cute.
The Happy Day kit has added some FUN, playful, summery accents to my planner, and I'm thrilled with the results.
