Fresh Idea Friday-tacky to terrific!

Good morning {ippity} peeps! So is everyone still riding high from the new release????? I sure am. I can't put down these stamps....that's good thing, right?!!! Thanks for a fun week and all the amazing support from you all.
So, am I the only person who buys a planner 2 months into the new year??? What was I thinking, believing I could get along without one in my purse???? On the hunt for something cute and petite, I realized NO ONE had planners or pocket calenders left in stock. I did find this one at the $1 store, but I hated the cover. Thanks to this fabulous craft/hobby, and all my new stamps still calling my name, I said, "DUH! I can make it waaaay cuter!" and that's what I did. So my planner goes from Tacky to Terrific in just a short 30 minutes.
Probably NO shocker that I used Where You Should Be for this. It's been such a HOT seller and I just ♥ ADORE IT!!! Contact your {ippity} Chick to get your hands on it. Paper is Garden Variety by Cosmo Cricket. I made the dp even cuter, by stamping those leaves in Momento rich cocoa ink. Since I had to keep everything flat and not use a ton of layers, the sentiment was stamped in the same ink and highlighted with some Copics on a kraft blossoms die cute piece. I even stamped up the back of the planner. Just stamped and colored in some of the leaves with Copics.
The whole thing is wrapped up and protected with a little plastic cover.
Give it ago, customize something in your purse or home today-a planner, a checkbook cover, a journal. It's fun and now I have something terrific to carry around with me.

Just a friendly reminder: Clean your acrylic blocks, today, if they're dirty. You'll be amazed at how well they hold the stamps, again! Yep, learned that one from experience yesterday!

Hugs, Lisa
