Countdown to the Holidays

I just became a Stampin' Up demonstrator so I could keep my hand in the stamp world (used to own "Stamp Oasis" in Las Vegas) and have Autumn/Holiday fever already! Here's a little something I made:

This uses the new Holiday set "Peaceful Poinsettias" and the matching dies for an elegant look. 

I started by randomly die cutting the holly out of whisper white CS then sponging the pieces in Shaded Spruce. I then placed them back in but first getting a little bit of glue and lightly rubbing the edges- Be careful not to get the ink activated from the glue and get some ink on your main card!

I also ran the inset piece inside wax paper to press everything back down.

Then trim the edges and layer over gold card. I sponged the green layer then put the whole thing on a white card. I gold embossed the sentiment on vellum and highlighted the edges to get a really soft look, then backed it on white card. It is then attached with dimensionals. 

Next time I may keep the berries and sponge them red for a pop of color...til next time!

Tons of new weekly spreads in my Planner!

 With the Royal Funeral it has been a little busy here-- but now have a second to show past weekly/monthly spreads!

Above is using Megan's playhouse from Etsy...and below is from Wild Summer Designs.

Here's October, though you wouldn't know it by the weather! No Fall here...

Running out of stuff to read so starting Harry Potter book series over-- again!
In his honor, this spread from StickEBeans.

   This week was the beginning of the Holidays/Ceremonies for the late King Rama lV...
I thought this was a gorgeous week spread from Hurricane Randi. Some of the boxes even match
the Royal backgrounds used in wallpaper and woven in silk.

And though Halloween is not a thing in Bangkok, had to do a spread using Temp Loves Crafts.

   This elegant black and gold week was for the 5 days of ceremonies for the King. I used washi and Happy Planner sticker books- 

Almost caught up, here are Stickerbloom kit stickers for a very pretty week...

Before we moved, I stocked up on my Traveler's Notebook Midori refills for my Prima notebook. Had a lot of fun decorating the covers, wasn't sure how easily I could find new ones here in BKK.

Ok, all caught up! Check back for more spreads and you can read about living in Bangkok at:

Planner Spreads with Etsy //Non Etsy Stickers plus Japanese Washi tape

Here we go, more spreads- I also upload them to my IG @audreygwyn....
   I used this amazing Peacock set from "Labelled with Love Co"

This was a Non Etsy spread, with stash from Magenta Stamps, Recollections washi and Happy Planner sticker books.

Here is a no white spread that used pretty stickers from "Megan's Playhouse" on Etsy. They were a pleasure to see every day!

Before I moved, I had fun decorating lots of blank Traveler Notebooks to use while here. I wasn't sure how easy they would be to buy. Luckily, I found at least 2 official Midori TN sections in stores, so I can restock. 

One of the things I was looking forward to in moving to Thailand was being able to get Japanese Washi-- I have found it in several stores but it is unbelievably expensive I think due to import fees. They start around $5 USD per roll and the pretty ones with foil are almost $8! Too rich for me, so I just look at them and drool. Here is a selection at the cool Japanese store "Loft".

That's all for now!

Life is officially crazy- I moved to Thailand! The chaos was so great that last few weeks, I had chosen my favorite Alice stickers for my birthday week and hardly got to use them! Here is a view

"before the pen"....

Also wanted to show just a few others that got missed in the fray!

and last but not least, my 2nd favorite was the Guardians of the Galaxy by Chasing Chels--find her at!

Sometimes I don't want to use my "special" Etsy stickers for a planner spread- and since I have tons of scrapbook supplies, it is so easy to use those up and make myself feel thrifty at the same time! Here are several examples of what I did--

I used map paper for the big borders and then my stash of vintage travel stickers-- looks pretty good!

Here is the following week....

Can you tell we were in Venice? Stickers matched perfectly! I also used scrapbook paper on the sidebars.


This next example is all built around some ANCIENT Hercules stickers I had-- they were going transparent in some places even...then just matched washi tape to the pages.

I did use a few random monochrome check lists but all in all- this page cost under $2


Here's a similar idea, all built around these adorable mermaid stickers which I think came from Michaels. 

I trimmed down washi tape to make super skinny pieces but again, a cute spread under $2!!


Here is one with plain scrapbook paper and arrow Boho rub ons from Michaels---with a little help from matching washi- pretty striking with very little effort or expense!

I used some really pretty paper for this next one-- the borders are the back side of the box paper and I used some old scrapbook border words in black. 

I think this looks great myself--- about 1 dollar!

This next one is eye catching, but made with rubber stamps on very old sticker square paper--all from Magenta. These were all randomly stamped and then some sponging in the background-the flowers and leaves were colored in with pencils- add some black washi and you are done- 

That's all for today- I hope you enjoyed these!
