I love the colors, mustard yellow, chocolate brown, sandy beige, and mint green. They all seem to work together so well.
I used the new label shaped box covers that I created again this week and have concluded that, in the future, I will use a combination of ombre boxes and labels. I like them, but not for the sidebar.

I created a layout with red and green apples along with hearts and other red and green stickers to celebrate the beginning of school.
I tried some new stickers this week. I thought that it would be cute to have stickers in the shape of labels for the date boxes. So I created a label sticker with a little a little apron to mute out the center, the size of the boxes on the weekly calendar. Let me know what you think of them. If you like them I'll keep making them, if not, I'll go back to making ombre boxes.
Just a reminder, that these stickers come in both the size that will fit the MAMBI Happy Planner and the size that will fit the Erin Condren Life Planner. They are available in my online shop at http://store.mystunningnails.com.

I found a picture of a negative design on Pinterest and it inspired this design that I did on my nails today, or rather tonight. It's getting late. I've never done negative nail art, but this one turned out to be rather cute.
I taped off the center of the nail and polished the top and bottom a fun color of purple. Then on the edges of the purple I painted daisies with pink centers using acrylic paints.
Leaving the nail unpainted in places is a new look, and one I'm still getting used to. It's almost like playing peekaboo with the nail!
Before you ask...the reason I'm hiding my thumb is because the nail finally broke all the way off. :(
Let's checkout that design I did:

August's kit features Sunflowers in a warm yellow with accent colors of leaf green, denim blue, and chocolate brown. I love the little sunflowers on the washi tape at the bottom and the big sunflowers, so big that you can only see pieces of them, on the banners across the top.
I only had time to do the MAMBI Happy Planner today, but I will get a picture of the Erin Condren Life Planner up soon. I like you to see it in both planners.
This first Surprise Spread will be available for pre-sell for 36 hours, until Sunday, August 21th at midnight. Because I work alone still I will be accepting a limited number of people to the club so that I can get orders out in a timely fashion. So order your kit early before the limit is reached. If the limit is reached before midnight on August 21th then the pre-sell will be closed.
Just a reminder, that these stickers come in both the sizes that will fit the MAMBI Happy Planner and the sizes that will fit the Erin Condren Life Planner. They are available in my online shop at http://store.mystunningnails.com.

I realized that I haven't done a posts about nails for a while and I hope you are okay with that. I tried to catch a basket of falling clothes and cracked three nails. My thumb nail is almost broken down into the skin. I'm trying to hang on to it as long as possible.
In this Plan With Me I did a month spread for September as well as a week spread called Floral. Although I filmed it Sunday I didn't get around to editing it until this morning. This week I tried something different. I completed the spread in both the MAMBI Happy Planner and the Erin Condren Life Planner so that you could see both layouts. I tried to do them differently so you can see how the pieces could be used to create different looks. There are eight sheets of stickers in each kit and I don't use all of them in each spread. There are a lot of different combinations that are possible with the stickers provided in each kit.
This September is colorful and features fuchsia. The words in the banner and special occasion boxes is a warm, golden beige. The patterns are varied and include polkadots, diamonds, and chevrons. It is a very bright and cheerful layout to send off the summer and bring in the fall.
Floral is a pink and peach spread with flowers and scrolls. I love peach and pink together. They play off of each other well. The black flowers and scrolls pop off the page.
This is the one that I did in both sizes and two different looks. In the Erin Condren Life Planner I used the checklist flags and the half-boxes. In the MAMBI Happy Planner I used the ombre boxes.

Now I have cracked three nails on my swatching hand and will have to do nail posts with very short nails or no posts at all for a while. I may be able to salvage them for a short period of time, but they are coming off soon.
Next week I plan to start the Surprise Spreads that I promised to in the last Plan With Me. I'm really excited about this monthly kit. You should enjoy each of these. They are a great value at $16.95 for a pages 8 pages, including some "to do" stickers, which I don't include in my regular kits.
This week's spread is called Peacock Story. It's very colorful and bright, but I find it very striking. I used a lot of teal and there is navy, purple, and green in the spread. To calm things down a bit I used light tan "to do" stickers. There is a lot going on in the spread but altogether it is beautiful.
Just a reminder, that these stickers come in both the sizes that will fit the MAMBI Happy Planner and the sizes that will fit the Erin Condren planner. They are available in my online shop at http://store.mystunningnails.com.
