Friends, I have to warn you that this post is picture heavy.  Rather than try to explain how I created this, I am just going to show you.  So here we go!

This is a plastic divider page.  I got a package of 8 for a buck.

This is a template for my planner hole placement

The DCWV Star Dust Stack

I cut the divider to 7x9 and used the template to and a hole punch to get the placement just right. 

My planner I got for Christmas at Costco

As you can see, this week isn't even started.

I also wanted to make some cute paper clips

The stamps I used for paper clips

I am using the Little Green Man from Wink Wink Ink.  The Little green man is 1 1/2 tall here

Little green man is 8 1/2 inches tall
Using my KNK Zing, I scanned in my 2 stamp images.  I re-sized them.  Then with my trusty MTC program, I printed them on my Samsung Lazer Printer so I could use my Foilmaster and foil the images.

These are the foiled stamped images.  Using MTC and my Zing I was able to print and cut the images after they were foiled.  Such a great program and cutter.

Cut images.  The silver quote reads, Shoot for the moon.  Even if you miss you'll land among the stars.

I cut the DCWV Star Dust to 7x9
1 piece for front and back

Finishing the paper clips

I had mirrored the images so that I would have front and backs that fit together
Just a closer look

I wanted my Little Green Man's head to act like a tab when turning the page

So here is my divider page placed in my planner

With the paper clips

Close up look at finished paper clips.
That is it for my divider page for my planner project.  Hope this inspires you to try something different.

On Saturday I am being mom-napped by my wonderful daughters for a small shopping trip to the big city.  Hope to come home inspired with some new crafting goodies.

Have your best week ever!  Bright Blessings,
