My #krafttex #fauxdori / #Cahier is coming along nicely. I still need to trim my inserts, but I’ve handled the cover quite a bit and so far it’s holding up well. #craft #crafty #creative #art #mixedmedia #papercraft #planner #papercrafts #handmadewithlove

I like what I've done with the cover of my DIY Planner. I just don't have the time that I thought I would have to create weekly pages and other custom pages. I'm hoping that as I decide what formats I need for the various departments of my life, I will be able to insert pages as needed since the Me and My Big Ideas (mambi) Happy Planner uses a disc system. I like the flexibility it offers which allows me to still do my own thing.
Stay tuned for an unboxing post or video....

I would like to schedule multiple actcities for my crafting and my graphic design. I also need to have room for personal activities. I knew going in that a prefab planner wouldn't work for me. I hope to sort out a custom layout for my 2016 pages soon. I also need to develop a color scheme. I like pink A LOT but it's not doing it for me with this planner.
I did a little craft shopping for the pet album I'm working on today, and I picked up a roll of black Kraft-tex from Hobby Lobby. I originally wanted to use it for the cover of the album, but it was too thick for my design.
After looking at photos on the packaging, I had one of those great ideas of mine. I can use the Kraft-tex to create a cover for my 2016 planner! All I need is the binder rings and I will have complete control over the size and design of my planner! I don't know why I have the need to make everything. Maybe it's the control freak in me.
I'm not happy with the hard cover binder on my planner now, so switching to the durable and flexible Kraft-tex cover will be great! I can even make my own pockets on the inside cover.
Have you created anything with Kraft-tex?
