Third Time's a Charm

Today I am trying out for my third term on the design team for The Robin's Nest.  I love their paper and embellishments!  So beautiful, elegant, timeless and pretty!

One of my all time favorite papers at The Robin's Nest is the Fleur and they have it in six colors!  So, I wanted to use one of my favorite color combos:  cobalt blue, yellow and white and my favorite paper from The Robin's Nest to make up my 2013 planner!  Now, you might be asking, 2013!  Already?  But if you have kids just ending the school year, you have been sent a copy of next years school calendar and you want to start planning.  And I love planners, ok I am addicted to planners, but often am frustrated that they do not have the right size or information that I want.  So I am making my own.
I started by creating the calendar pages in Microsoft Word and printing them out on heavy card stock.  I then made my cover with The Robin's Nest Blue Fleur, Tropicana Fleur and Yellow Sunshine Glitter Chipboard.  The 2012 is cut with Cricut Elegant Cakes and the resin flower is Anna Griffin. The border is Martha Stewart.  For the inside of the front cover, I used the striped side the the Blue Fleur and a bit of the Robin's Nest Blue Glitter Journaling to get the look of lace.  I liked this look so much I cut up more and used it on the back inside cover too!
I made a pocket page using October Afternoon.  If you make a pocket page for an album, try a double sided paper for this and just score your page.  Instant coordinating paper!
For the inside back cover, I used another of The Robin's Nest Blue Glitter Journaling blocks to label my planner, in case it gets lost.  I added the photo mat in the Blue Fleur and the Blue Glitter Journaling.  The back outside cover is more Blue Fleur matted on Distressed Honeycomb.
