Planner Love Challenge: Courtney's April Daily Doodles

Hi everyone!!! It's Courtney Lee with Court's Crafts today and I decided to show you my April calendar as it is the "finished" one. I LOVE the Daily Doodles. I have been doing them since December and as a non-scrapbooker, this has been such an awesome way to capture our lives. I'm putting them in this fabulous scrapbook so the girls can look back and realize all of the fun things that we did. It doesn't have all the detail - as in I don't put "painting" on there but you could! I just put our scheduled family activities, Lilibeth's "firsts", their milestones, visitors, play dates, etc.

This clipboard hangs in our mudroom so anyone can look at it and know what is going on.


I love using the doodle pops and the sprinkle shapes for big events. This little girly sea turtle is just perfect for McKenna's birthday! I have to say - it's one of my favorite sprinkle shapes ever!

I made a little scene in the bottom left corner.

I use washi tape and fancy frills to show when people are out of town (or when we have a houseguest staying for a while). This has been super helpful for the girls to visually see when daddy gets back, etc. 

I always like to do a little something at the tops of them. The sprinkle shaped star and little fish on the bottom right of the scene were the perfect finishing touches. The pre-made month labels are AWESOME. I love this font.

The 6x6 pads in each collection come with this cute matrix of squares. I love using them on my daily doodles. You will be able to see three in the big picture. I used the bubbles to highlight other events.

Here are two Saturday birthdays and this time instead of writing in straight lines I wrote around the objects and I have to say that I LOVE the look. I plan on doing this in the future months too! 

Here is is again in all it's crazy glory! I know it looks like a lot but it just builds up over the month. And.. I admit... I kind of like it that way. This is how wonderfully and cutely chaotic our life is right now and this is SUCH a fabulous way for us all to stay organized and on the same page! 

Grab some daily doodles and start capturing your family memories. I promise you wont regret it and how fun will it be when the kids get to look back and see what our lives looked like? I hope it will make them feel loved, special, enriched and cared for.

Planner Love Challenge: Daily Doodles for Mother's Day


Hello Doodlebug Fans!!

Piali here, today I have a Daily Doodles project to share with you all.
In our whom we have lots of reason to celebrate during the month of May & June.
May... my oldest birthday, she turned 15 this year, then Mother's day, and our Anniversary.
June my youngest birthday & Father's day.

Here is our Month of May Celebration calendar...

The Doodlebug clipboards are simply Amazing!
I used them to display my layouts or for calendar pages.

I used Stickers from various Doodlebug collections for this project.
I also used the Sprinkles to embellish.
 Love that Doodlebug makes a wide variety of Alpha stickers and rub ons.
I like mixing different fonts & sizes of alpha for my projects.

Hope you all like this project!

Thanks for stopping by..
Happy Crafting!
Piali.

Planner Love Challenge: April Daily Doodle by Mendi

Hello there Doodlebugs!  It's Mendi here today with a calendar page featuring Doodlebug's Daily Doodles and their fun new sweet rolls of icon stickers which are so perfect for planners!

To create my title along the top I added a piece of grass washi tape and then alternated colors from my favorite Skinny Cardstock Stickers.  I then continued by alternating rows of different prints of spring washi tape for each week of the month.

For my numbers and words I used the Sweet Script stamps by Sunny Studio and alternated them in matching ink colors.   I chose to print (6) 1.75" x 1.75" photos onto 4x6 prints and add them to the days that they were taken on the calendar.  The extra squares in the month, gave me a place to add extras for days when I took several special photos on the same day.

As a scrapbooker I actually save all my calendars so I can look back over them to refer to if I ever need to see an important date for a scrapbook layout.  I love how with this idea I can pair photos from the month with important dates so our family can have a cute keepsake to look over at a glance (it's so much prettier than my old marked up calendars).  I hope I've inspired you to take a closer look at the daily doodles and use it as your own version of memory keeping!  :)
