Introducing Doris Sander

Greetings!  It was hard finding a photo of myself acting normal or not hugging my kid.  That’s good though, right?  Ha! We will be introducing our class contributors here each day as their first lesson launches.  Looks like I’m first! I grew up on the gulf...

Cocoa Daisy Day in the Life cards are my one must have item each month.  They are so useful and versatile across all my papercrafting endeavors, including Project Life, scrapbooking, planners, and Traveler’s Notebooks.  Today I’m sharing two layouts that...
Adding Personal Planner Pages to My DaisyDori

Adding Personal Planner Pages to My DaisyDori

This month I am experimenting with adding personal planner pages to my DaisyDori.  On this spread I added a pocket using a dashboard and packing tape.  I then slipped in a set of the week on one page personal planner pages to try to beef up my weekly goal setting. On...

I hope your October Cocoa Daisy goodies arrive shortly!  I sure have had fun playing with mine.  My favorite thing this month was mixing the patterned papers on my layouts.  I thought the colors and patterns were especially fun this month.  Below is my unboxing video...
August Planner Dashboards “Off the Page”

August Planner Dashboards “Off the Page”

Seeing the new designs for the planner dashboards is one of my favorite parts of unboxing each month.  They are always so gorgeous and have such positive messages.  I use my favorites in my planners, of course, but I want to use ALL of them!  This month I added...
Pocket Page Dilemma!

Pocket Page Dilemma!

As I began to work with this month’s kit, I realized that I had a dilemma.  All my photos are Instagram squares lately and I had no 4×4 pocket pages.  Did I need to run out and buy those, or could I make it work?  I decided to go for it, and these are the...

Graduation Cards

Have you noticed yet how absolutely perfect “Marrakesh” is for creating graduation cards?  What perfect timing, right?  I made these four in no time at all with a few scraps and ephemera bits.  I could make four times as many just as easily! Here are a...

Throw Back Thursday: Brand New Day DITL

Throw Back Thursday: Brand New Day DITL

The cards in March’s DITL Kit, “Brand New Day” were so charming and inspirational.  They were the springboard for many layouts and cards that month as well as a couple of pocket pages.  I can’t believe there are actually a few of this kit left...
Adding a Second Planner to My Planning Routine

Adding a Second Planner to My Planning Routine

I don’t know about you, but I’ve always been a one planner kind of girl (well, except for my lesson plan book for school, but that’s different, right).  I finally went a little crazy and added a second (or third, depending on perspective) planner to...
April Showers Bring May Flowers

April Showers Bring May Flowers

Is your planning off to a good start this month?  I don’t know about you, but I just love the fresh start that my Cocoa Daisy planner offers each month.  March got away from me a little bit, but there’s nothing like a brand new planner theme to renew my...
Are You a Card Maker?

Are You a Card Maker?

Are you a card maker?  I didn’t used to be.  I struggled to make cards that I liked and looked at it as more of a task to get through rather than a creative process to enjoy.  This past year, however, I have really found my card making groove.  Part of that is...
