Journal Planner Layouts

December Inspiration with Amanda Baldwin

December 21, 2015

Hi Kaisercrafters!

Welcome back for more Kaisercraft creativity and inspiration!

With Christmas only a matter of days away, I would like to take this opportunity to thankyou for all the support & kind comments you’ve all left me this past year! It really means so much!

From the bottom of my heart, I wish you and your loved ones a very safe, & Merry Christmas!!!

Now, let’s dive straight into the good stuff!

Kaisercraft released two very different, but both stunning, new collections this month,

My Year, My Story

*Designed with the new Journal Planners in mind, it’s totally modern, fresh and bursting with colour*


Treasured Moments

*Perfectly pretty, antiques, roses and all things vintage for this lovely collection*

Here’s what I’ve created with My Year, My Story…….

“Shine Bright” 8.5 x 11″ layout


I was immediately drawn to the yellow papers in this collection – so fun, bright and full of happy possibilities! Perfect for my happy snaps of the everyday moments!

Kaisercraft Products: CD101 | Coconut, P2001 | Shine, PP986 | Paper Pad, SS302 | Sticker Sheet, CT845 | Collectables, KM103 | Yellow, ST913 | Steel, ST928 | Life, T302 | Mounting Foam Dots. Other: Doily



I know, how pretty is that lace template?! I really wanted to create a page that really showcased that stencil – so feminine & delicate!

TIP: To get the same effect, mix your Kaisermists with gesso, and then apply evenly with a palette knife.

Kaisercraft Products: CD101 | Coconut, P2002 | Lilac, PP986 | Paper Pad, T629 | Template-Lace, KM119 | Blackberry, SB785 | Lavender, F643 | Amethyst, F660 | Amethyst. Other: Gesso & doily.

“Life Is Peachy”



Another cool background effect created with mixing Kaisermist and gesso (I used Kaisermist: Peach, and applied to the cardstock with a spatula). I really love the peachy tones with the lime green – so fun & fresh! And those collectables are too cute!!!

Kaisercraft Products: CD101 | Coconut, P2000 | Cactus, P2003 | Peachy, P2005 | Allsorts, PP986 | Paper Pad, CT845 | Collectables, SS302 | Sticker Sheet, EM969 | Blossoms-Dahlia, FL441 | Pennants, KM107 | Peach, PT214 | Printed Tape-Half Doily. Other: Gesso.

“Be Happy, Be Bright”



And just because this collection was ‘bursting with colour’, I had a bit of a rainbow moment…. ;)

More Kaisermist fun!

Kaisercraft Products: CD101 | Coconut, P2003 | Peachy, P2005 | Allsorts, SS302 | Sticker Sheet, F638 | Cranberry, F634 | Sunset, F633 | Olive, F649 | Sage, EM405 | Paper Doilies, KM109 | Red, KM108 | Orange, KM103 | Yellow, KM104 | Lime Green, KM105 | Turquoise, KM119 | Blackberry. Other: Staples.

I also created a super fun double layout with this collection, which you can view here, as well as a cute pineapple card for the monthly challenge, which you can revisit here.

But this collection was created with Journal Planners in mind, so here’s a peak inside my Journal Planner for February 2015…..

Journal Planner Pages – February


With February being the month of LOVE, I had to use the raspberry pink tones from the My Year, My Story collection!


I’ve used the Sticker Sheet-Months, as well as the Clear Stamps from the My Year, My Story collection to create my month to a page calendar. Here’s a closer look…….


Those sweet heart stamps also feature in the stamp pack – too cute!


I’m a bit of ‘girl’s gotta list it’ kinda girl – so this next page (from the Paper Pad) is perfect for my personalised planner…


Love the checkboxes too! Really going to keep me organised for 2015!



SO loving February 2015 already!

If you missed my ‘January 2015’  (mint) planner pages, you can see them here.

Kaisercraft Products: SA052 | Journal Planner-Blush, P1999 | Raspberry, SS301 | Sticker Sheet-Months, SS302 | Sticker Sheet, CT845 | Collectables, CS700 | Clear Stamper, CS245 | Clear Stamps, IP719 | Black, RS420 | Hearts, ST912 | Candy, PT231 | Glitter Tape-Hot Pink, PT232 | Glitter Tape-Red, SB701 | Soft Pink. Other: The Planner Society kit embellishments, bows, clips, ribbons, washi tape, pens, scissors, Charms Creations embellishments, pegs, tassles, & charms.

Okay, so it’s safe to say that I totally fell in love with My Year, My Story! So much so, that I really ran out of time to indulge in Treasured Moments! But I did get a few layouts with it….

“You Make Me Smile”


I love this! SO vintage, pretty and all things lovely! A really elegant collection – perfect for scrapping the girls with!

Kaisercraft Products: P2008 | Recollection, P2015 | Ponder, PP987 | Paper Pad, CT846 | Collectables, SB789 | Chino. Other: Doily & sewing.

And because the collection is soooooo girly, I just had to create a boy page with it too…..

“FOREVER” 8.5 x 11″ layout

2015-12-13 15.52.07

Isn’t he adorable?! Such a sweet boy! And how cool is this page?!

Nothing girly (or vintage) about this layout at all! Such fun!

I also created this beautiful frame layout for the Specialty post – so very beautiful that I just had to share it again….


And there you have it! A December full of inspiring layouts,

and planner lovelies to get you through to the New Year!

Have a Holly Jolly Christmas!

Happy Arty Days, Amanda xo
