How to Add Pages to Your Planner with The Cinch

Today I am over at the Blitsy Blog.  I love making my own dividers and inserts for my planner. I can switch out the insides when I want to try something new. I can customize and personalize it to my needs. I can simply do this by using tools from We R Memory Keepers.

What other items do you like to add on to you planner? Leave a comment below. I would love to know what products you use to add on to your planner. Do you have a go to paper punch? Do you also use the Cinch?

Make sure to head on over to the Blitsy Blog to see how I use this wonderful crafting tool.

Happy Crafting and Planning!

Happy Leap Day + Giveaway

Happy Leap Day! Since we get an extra day for crafting this year, let's have some fun and celebrate with a Blog Leap with some of my fellow Blitsy Creative Team Members. What's a Blog Leap you may ask? Well, it's just like a Blog Hop where you bounce around each Blog for a chance to win something and to get some inspiration along the way. (Don't worry, we'll do a Blog HOP for Easter ;)

Also, we've decided to celebrate with 29 cent items hidden all throughout! Just browse around and grab them up when you see them! They WILL go fast, so make sure you're quick!

As lucky number 7 on the blog leap, I hope to inspire you to create with Webster's Pages Color Crush Planners and accessories! You will love every single thing, just as much as I do.

Confession: I am a PLANNER ADDICT! How can you not be with all these gorgeous, colorful planners. Webster's Pages offers 3 different sizes. A5, Personal and coming soon...Traveler's Notebook.

Webster's Pages also offers beautiful charms and tassels to accessorize your planner with.  

Not only can you use your planner to keep track of appointments and daily to-dos, you have the ability to be more creative with them by using washi tape, stickers, stamps, and more! Personalize and customize them by creating your own dividers, inserts, and pocket pages.

Here is a look at my finished pages for the month of February and a sneak peak of one of the new planners which will be coming out this Spring!
