My Cards and Tags: Day Planner Cards

This week's Simon Says Stamp Monday challenge theme is, "...from up in the clouds."  I thought what better thing to pull out of the clouds than my scattered flighty brain?  I tell you- sometimes I totally space it, so I decided to make some day planner cards to keep me organized. 

I made planner cards because I kept forgetting to buy an actual planner (see why I need these?) and I also thought these would be an adorable addition to pocket scrapbooking pages to show what was done on a certain day.

To make these cards, I used a 3" x 4" rounded corner punch and some Flea Market paper.  I wrote the weekdays using Lawn Fawn's Milo's ABC's set.  I outlined each card with Distress Markers.

The planner components are from various planner stamp sets.  I threw in a milk carton from Paper Smooches, too, next to Wednesday's menu.  I filled in the background using Prima's honeycomb stencil.

After doing these cards, I can totally see why people decorate their planners.  It makes some of life's monotonous duties feel a little more artistic!  

You can find these supplies to spiff up your own planner at the Simon Says Stamp store:
