October is a lovely month for crafting. When the leaves turn red, golden, orange and brown, there’s fresh craft inspiration everywhere you look. At this time of year, I’m always reminded of how much I love the color orange. I didn’t always love orange, but it has really grown on me.
Pictured above is an orange and black planner dashboard I made for the month of October. I’m using a Classic Horizontal Happy Planner, but a layout like this would work fine with most other discbound planners, too.
These patterned papers are almost all from Graphic45’s “Time to Flourish” collection. I used the 8″x8″ pad, but that is now really hard to find. However, you still might be able to find the 12″x12″ Collectors Edition (Check HERE, too.) The die-cut flower centers are from a Graphic 45 flower assortment. I die cut embellishments for the page using multiple dies including the
Lacey Edgers Dies by Pinkfresh Studio, the Scalloped Rectangle Frame Mini Slimline Dies by Pinkfresh Studio, Happy Day Labels by Echo Park and the Sweet Blooms Die Set by Altenew.
I used Distress Inks and Distress Oxides on some of the elements to add depth and dimension.
Thanks so much for taking a look at my project; I appreciate your interest.
