Hi everyone! Welcome Back.
With recent changes to my life I have had to wonder how I view life. Every day I take out my planner and utilize it as a way to funnel my creative energy. I have found that I enjoy having my planner out on my desk and seeing just how cute and pretty I can make it. By nature I am a crafter and I love to create, draw and all the rest. This for me has been a way for me to organize my self as well as give me a daily inspiration.
One of those is having a positive mind and giving myself a positive vibe. Seeing how work always pushes me to rush. I'm always under constant pressure too. With that in mind I had decided to make a cute little dashboard for myself.
Click on the images below to get a closer look.
Of course I used my Cricut to make this seeing as there are several tab cards available in Design Space (DS). I made this color item using a phrase in DS and made my own rates using Inkscape. As for the colorful printed paper, well I had designed my own digital paper a while back and decided to use that for my background since I wanted something colorful to add some cheer to my day. All I had to go was get a dry-erase marker and I can fill it on on the back to make a list of positives or things to help me stay a bit more optimistic about life and remind myself that life is short and stress is the last thing I need in my short life.
Just to show you the type of day I started off with...here is a look at my positive for the day. I have to say at least my outlook on life is a bit better today.
Then again...I didn't get burned by coffee.
I will be posting a tutorial on making these little inserts for your happy planner. This way you can make your own too!

Hi everyone! Welcome back to the blog!
Today I'm sharing a little something new with you all. So I have been toying with a cleaning schedule for my Happy Planner. I have been finding that I wait till the weekend to clean my house because that's when I have "free" time. That just means when I don't have to work. Well that just wasn't working for me because then I spend the better part of my weekend having to clean and getting frustrated. I don't know about you guys, but to be honest I hate that. My weekends are supposed to be the days that I have time for my family and myself.
So one day I decide to Google it. Whaaaaaaaaaaaaa??? Yes... you can actually find a lot of topics on this matter. I found a blog post on how one woman decided that it took a whole lot less effort on her part if she just cleaned her houses in sections a little at a time during the week. This left a lot of time for the weekends. That's when the light went off in my head and this is what I came up with!
The best part about this is that you don't necessarily have to complete all the items in that week for the monthly, but you can then elect which section you want to do on a weekly basis.
This insert is a downloadable PDF file which you print front and back on a 24 lb. sheet of paper. I like weight of paper better than the standard copy paper (20 lb.) because it doesn't have too much show through. The PDF comes in a way that it will print on the center of the paper on each side. Once printed all you have to do is trim it down to size of 7" x 9.25". I use the printed Line bar on the side as a reference.
You can find this product on the Etsy Shop. It comes in pink or blue. More colors to come as I create and update. Give me some feed back if you do get this item so that I can improve or maybe you even have an idea for a theme!

HeartcraftPaper is getting a new look!
The website has changed! I'm totally excited for this new look. I think it looks sophisticated yet fun. I personally thing it was time for a change.
I'm still sticking with the color pink, but figured that a nice French flair of pink, black and white would really help my shop stand out. Aside from that I'm not really sticking to the heart theme much, but more or less to a style.
With all this, the next change I'm having is the type of items that I will be selling. After much consideration I have come to the conclusion that I would like to take on my second passion. That is my life planner. Now I have been life planning for a while now in order to keep myself organized. This came about as a way for me to really track things going on in my life, and I just love GLAMPING! I know that many of you Love the Happy Planner and other the Erin Condren Planners, so I plan on making stickers for each.
Let you in on a little secret... I have an EC and MAMBI store around the corner from where I live. I plan to hit each one to give you all a look-see.
Just incase you want to be in the know, you can also follow along on:
Many of you are probably wondering what has happened to my shop. Well, unfortunately there was not enough traffic coming through the website in order to make it successful. But, hey you never know if your business will succeed unless you try.
What does this mean for the items you currently have for sale?
Well that just means that i'm shifting location from this site to Etsy! This also means I am going to have a shift in items that I sell. I will continue to make digital items as well as having some physical ones.
So what are you going to be selling if not digital images?
My shift to making planner stickers has not come easy. Due to my own health issues the stress of drawing and churning out items on a monthly basis was aggravating my situation. This is also a great way for me to keep making things I love but in a way that I can manage.
I hope that you can stop by and visit the shop. You will also continue to see videos for how to's as well on the blog!
