Planner Decorating with Flourish – Crate Paper

I still get a little giddy each time I get out the Flourish collection by Maggie Holmes & Crate Paper to make something with.  The florals, patterns, ephemera are right up my alley and there isn’t anything I don’t love!   I decided to deck out my Heidi Swapp planner with Flourish.

Awhile ago, while playing with Flourish I made a teeny travellers notebook out of the botanical  book cover ephemera.  It has little page and I added tassels to the spine.  It looks super cute tucked into the pocket! The 6×8 papers from the cardmaker pad fit beautifully in the side pocket and add another spot to decorate and tuck things in!

For the dashboard I simply punched holes in another paper from the 6×8 pad.  No need to trim the paper they fit beautifully!  I layered it under the gold acetate that came with my planner.

I made a library card pocket for the front of the dashboard.  I used a similiar pocket from the Confetti Collection by Maggie Holmes as a guide.  I have all kinds of bits tucked into the pocket and some lovely sentiments stitched on top of it!

On the pocket side of the planner, I lightly tacked everything in place with adhesive.  It is enough to keep it from falling off but not so sticky as to ruin the pockets.  It is fun to change this area out and make it a pretty place to look at!
