Moments Inked: Travel Planning and Organization

June 1 _Newsletter_WM

Hello there!  Happy Monday!  Today's it's my turn to share with you how I have been using my Papertrey Ink Moments Inked Planner System!  Today, it's all about travel and trip planning!  Grab a cuppa something, and join me for a walk through my week. :)

I will start by sharing my full page spread, and then go into more detail about each of the individual elements.  When I decorate my pages, I look to each month's color combination for inspiration.  For the month of June, the color scheme is a beautiful one - Summer Sunrise, Orange Zest and Aqua Mist!  I lay out all of my supplies in those colors - ink, pens, patterned papers, felt, etc.  It is much easier to keep the decorating flow going when it's all at your finger tips,

So here is my full page spread:

On the left side of my page, I started off by stamping my weekly to-do list on the left side using the tiny star icons from the Moments Inked: Posted stamp set in Summer Sunrise ink.  I highlighted the column with a few images from the Moments Ink: Planner Banners stamp set.  The "chores" that I list here do not have a specific due date, just as long as they get done some time during that week.  I highlighted my Mom's birthday using the Tag It's #1 stamp set and the Moments Inked: Planner Banners stamp set and dies.  Using the Moments Inked: Divided stamp set, I noted church on Sunday, and my cleaning day on Monday.  Near the bottom of my page, I used the Moments Inked: Posted stamp set again to make note of pressing things that will need to occur before travel day. I added some fun patterns to my page using some Orange Zest patterned paper and some fun striped washi.

On the right side of my page, you will see that it's time to travel and get this vacation started!  I used the little plane image from the Blue Skies stamp set to mark our first day of vacation.  To block off the rest of the week, I used the cute patterned squares from the Background Basics: Diagonals.  I used the Moments Inked: Planner Banners stamp set to note a few other things like a coffee date and dinner reservations.  The little raindrops in the Blue Skies stamp set were perfect to illustrate our day at the waterpark.  Using the Bow Clips die, I make a few coordinating bow clip to mark off this page.

Travel always requires a packing list... and for me, packing and unpacking is such a drag.  But with a cute packing list, it can make the task a tiny bit easier.  I used the Moments Inked: Tabbed List die to cut from white card stock to create my list.  Then, using the Moments Ink: Listed stamp set, I stamped the lines with Soft Stone ink, and added a few cute images from the blue Skies set.

Then I created a place to make note of travel arrangements. I placed it in the weekly spread, but later, I can move it to the daily pages and use it as a fun keepsake.  I first cut the Blue Skies Coverplate from white cardstock.  Then, using the Moments Inked: Edged die, I added a notebook edge to the side so that I could easily add it to my planner.  I stamped the lines from the Moments Inked: Posted stamp set in Soft Stone ink to coordinate with the packing list, and then stamped the plane image from Blue Skies in Spring Rain Ink.

To put behind that, I created a planner pocket using the Moments Inked: Divided die set and the Moments Inked: Pocket Page die.  The back of the pocket is cut from  Orange Zest card stock and the pocket piece is cut from the same Orange Zest gingham paper that I used to decorate my weekly spread.  To find it easily, I added a tab that I cut from Summer Sunrise card stock using the Moments Ink: Divided stamps and die set.  In this pocket, I can put anything from travel itineraries, receipts, mementos, etc.

Here you can see how all of the pieces layer so nicely and everything can be neat and organized (and cute), which will hopefully lead to a less stressful trip!
