Lori Whitlock October 2018 Blog Hop




Hello crafty friends and welcome to my part of the Lori Whitlock October blog hop! You should have arrived here from Michelle's blog.

While I was looking around the shop I noticed this fabulous haunted house on the Pop Up Box Card Halloween (Lori Whitlock shop or Silhouette Design Store). My brain immediately imagined how awesome it would look on a layout, so yeah, here you go...


I also used 2 different sizes of pop dots on the haunted house to give it great dimension. I used thinner dots on the siding of the house and thicker dots on the conical roof pieces.

It's Fall Y'all Planner pages


Hello everyone and Happy Fall!! I'm here with you today to share my Lori Whitlock September Planner pages. Fall is my absolute favorite so these pages came together quickly.

There are so many new files that would create beautiful planner covers! I chose the "it's Fall Y'all" sentiment along with the wreath and flowers. I started this project with a focus on making DIY flower clips but I had so much fun designing the cover with the new cut files and Lori's beautiful new "Celebrate Autumn" collection that I lost my focus. LOL!! So here is a close up of the dashboard... 


And now I will get to the main part of this post...Lori has a ton of beautiful flowers in her shop so it was difficult trying to figure out which ones to use but these 2 looked the most fall-ish to me. I cut out the flowers, assembled them, and then glued them to a matching paper clip. To make sure they would stay on the paper clip, I adhered a circle to the backs. Make sure to use a good type of glue so they stay in tact through your planner activities.


Here is a look at my full dashboard/pocket spread made with the beautiful "Celebrate Autumn" collection...


The weekly pages were just as much fun creating as I really put the stamp set to work!



Lori's cut files needed to complete this project:

Hope you enjoyed taking a look into my Autumn planner pages and will try making your own paper flower clips for your planner!

LW A5 Planner Dashboard Tutorial


Hello crafty peeps! I'm here with you today to share a tutorial on creating planner dashboards. I've been doing this all year long because I feel there are so many of Lori's svg cuts that create a very unique dashboard! 


To start off I needed an A5 planner template so I would know how to resize all of my svg pieces. I created this template myself by scanning one of my pages and importing it into my Silhouette program to get the cut lines I needed.


I pulled up the A2 Beach Card svg file and deleted all of the pieces I didn't need which are the card base, card front panel piece, and the sentiment tag. I know this is a card svg but I just knew it make a fabulous planner dashboard!

 

I also pulled up the Cloud Dingbat font to get my title for my dashboard.


I wanted it to stand out so I added an offset cut.


I played around with the sizes of the cuts to get it to fit onto my A5 planner page template.


Here are my pieces after I cut them out with my Silhouette.


And here they are all adhered down to my August A5 planner page with some added decorations. I also ran my Spectrum Noir Sparkle pen over the sun and umbrella.


And here is finished product in my planner! It sets the tone of how I want the rest of my August planner pages to look. 


Here is a look at my January dashboard with a Lori Whitlock sentiment svg.


My April dashboard sports the beautiful mason jar svg cut.


There are so many options of Lori Whitlock svg cuts to create a unique look for all your planner dashboards!

And I leave you with... "Happy Planning" using some Lori Whitlock SVGs!!

What says Summer more than seashells, palm trees, and a sandcastle? I used the 3D Sandcastle svg cut to create this little cutie. Papers are from the Doodlebug Sweet Summer collection with a little Nuvo Glimmer Paste on the door and windows. Now I have the perfect little treat box to either stand alone as decor in my room or to give to someone with a summer birthday!
