spring circus planner ~ rhonna designs


Rhonna Farrer just came out with a couple new collections for My Mind's Eye...
did you see it?
Gosh she can rock the patterns.
That woman amazes me all the time.

Seeing the patterns prompted me to pull out her Spring Circus to pretty up my planner for SNAP.

The Chevron Tent pattern was printed on white card stock paper.
It was trimmed to size and adhered to the binder.

A few of the other pattern papers and banners from the Spring Circus kit were trimmed like little banners and attached to the seam binding dyed with Color Shine Mustard. That was a perfect match for the yellow chevron.

Taking the new Insta Snap kit, I made little tags with the black png files.
How you ask?
These are instructions for photoshop elements:
Navigate to the Insta Snap kit and open the BLACK PNG FILES.
Double click your chosen image.
Using the color picker, choose a color to re color your image.
In the EDIT drop down, click FILL LAYER.
In the FILL LAYER window, in CONTENTS, make sure you have clicked on the correct source for the new color.
Make sure opacity is 100%.
And be sure that PRESERVE TRANSPARENCY is clicked.
click O.K.
The InstaSnap image should be changed to your preferred color.

I then drag and drop the image onto an 8 1/2 x 11 document.
When you have all the images you desire on the document, click LAYER, and FLATTEN.

Then print.
and you have your little InstaSnap tag just the way you want it.

This planning binder holds notes, schedules, goals, and to do lists for my up coming trip to SNAP. The SHE quote is just what I need to remind me of goals and dreams accomplished in the last year since last SNAP, and to continue to unlock my can't and turn them into cans this next year. The possibilities are endless. Writing dreams and goals down can be scary. Seems only recently I have been able to bring myself to do this. I have created a habit, of such. At the same time, when plans fall through, I seem to be able to readjust quickly. Perhaps there is power in knowing I can write down new ones and go to work.

Next time I will share how to place the colored InstaSnap image inside the Insta Lovin' Frames for printing out.

So now...
do you have plans, goals, and dreams that need their very own home?
Go and make it all happen.
