May LPD Kit Guest Designers

main-display-photo
I am trying something new this month! I wanted to ‘feature’ each the May Kit guest designers, giving you the opportunity to ‘get to know’ them as I have. I strive to make sure that my kits are made with the best quality items. As the kit has grown in the the last 1.5 years, I have started to reach out to other small business’ in our community, sharing the opportunity of including items in LPD subscription kit. The Guest designer positions, started in January of 2018. Each month I have been able to ‘hire’ specialists in areas where they excel. These paid positions, not only help me bring the best possible kit to you, but they also function as a beautiful part of our communities growth. Providing additional traffic to shops each month in hopes to showcase talents & items the have,
thanking them for being a part of this months kit!
Thank you for taking the time to show love and
support to the 4 (four) May LPD Guest Designers!

Hi everyone, I’m Kate with The Planner & Paper Company! I started my shop in April of last year, I only had printables at the time, and started selling physical products in August. I have a graphics background and before joining the planning community I was involved in the scrapbooking world. In my shop I sell bright, functional planner stickers and die cuts. My monthly Planner Basics Kits also include patterned papers that you can use to create dashboards or use in any other creative way you can think of! The best feature of the Planner Basics Kit is that they are created with any planner in mind. I tried to create everything that is included in the kit to fit any planner from an Erin Condren planner to a Traveler’s notebook.
When I’m not sitting at my desk designing products I am a wife and full-time Mom. I have 2 kids, a daughter who’s a freshman in High School and a son who’s in 4th Grade. They keep us on our toes with Marching Band and baseball. I should probably change my job description from Mom to taxi driver as I spend quite a bit of my time in my car! We also have 2 dogs – Hank & Molly, who feature every now and then on my Instagram feed or in some stickers and die cuts. Since they are both Bully Breeds, we also participate in a local Bully Breed Pack Walk once a month.

Hey Planner Friends! I’m Trammie aka the owner/boss/creator/designer ( all those fancy terms) of A Little TLC Designs! I have been the guest designer for die cuts for your LPD boxes so far! So happy to be part of Lauren’s boxes as her designs are just simply gorgeous.
Anyways a little about me. I started my shop in March of 2016. I have been a planner since I was young (like middle school young) so discovering a whole community as an adult was beyond amazing! Who else gets to go back to their childhood? I started off making my stickers to fit my own planning needs. As my shop grew and planning style changed, my stickers evolved with it! I am the type that likes to have options so I wanted to do the same with my shop. I knew I liked all different kinds of paper depending on what it was being used for, so I wanted to offer variety in my shop. I personally love writing on the premium matte paper, but the glossy is perfect for full box quotes where no writing is involved! I also offer kits in vertical and horizontal because at the time, I was a total horizontal girl, but I also had a vertical as well.
So why not make stickers for both?
I currently live in Michigan with my husband and our 8 month old, Gabriel! As a first time mom, I am busier than ever between family, Etsy and work so planning keeps me not only on track but SANE! I hope you’ve enjoyed the die cuts and collabs I have been doing with Lauren so far, and if you want more die cuts make sure to check out my shop! Thank you for your support!

I am a stay-at-home/work-at-home mom of 2 in Redford, Michigan. When I am not chasing kids (I babysit during the week), I am creating beautiful things for your planner! I got my start in the crafting world with crochet, which will always be my true love, but takes a lot of time, so I moved on to hair accessories. A friend asked me if I had enough ribbon to make her a planner tassel, and well, the rest is history! Now it’s been almost a year that I have been selling planner accessories on Etsy, and I couldn’t be happier! I am excited to see what this next year brings, and truly humbled by all the support and kindness I have from my customers.

My name is Michelle. I am the creator of Pinkstrawberryz. Im currently a stay at home mom, military wife, and full time passionate crafter.
I created Pinkstrawberryz during my downtime (Aka baby nap time lol)while I was raising my son at home in 2014. I wanted to somehow contribute to our family while doing something I loved which was collecting Kawaii at the time. I used to send out beautiful packages via pen paling Kawaii and started to become very passionate about packaging and making things look as pretty and sparkly as possible. Some how this led me down to the road of sequins lol
Anyways here I am today with amazing feedback, loyal customers, and creative friends/shop owners who inspire me along the way!

Palette Peek Time: September 

Many times during the month, I am asked, Where can I see a sneak peek?!?! Well… until today, it was only via Instagam as I produced items, I would sometimes sneak them onto the feed. BUT not everyone has IG! So, going forward, I will add a ‘Pallet’ Peek for you! This will give you a color pallet & general feel for the kit. Then we can all start planning (see what I did there? Lol) which notebook to use! Or however you plan on using your awesome LPD elements! 
Love you all & lets all continue to keep Texas in our hearts as they face the hurricane devastation.
Lauren

Did you see the August LPD kit?!?

Wow! What a beautiful photo!!! Thank you Bess! 
I was so excited after the July kits release & response to it! After August sold out, I couldn’t even believe it & was so extremely grateful to each of you who ordered & shared the info & who posted awesome photos for us to all swoon over!!! I mean, it was surreal in a way! My little ‘shop’ being seen all over & planner girls begging, yes, begging, me to re-release the July kit! WOW! 
When I released August, it sold out in about 24 hours & I was in awe & brought to tears of joy! The amount of time & love I have poured into this shop was over flowing me with blessings!
August has been a tough month for this momma! I really missed my kiddos & was counting down the days to see them & bring them home from their 8 week vacation! I was drained, physically & mentally from the final push of the crazy number of orders completed from the Spring PBC sale & then the Christmas in July sale that followed almost immediately! But wow! I was so happy to get all this beautiful mail out to each of you! To get it in your hands, to read your reviews & to see you sharing your spreads all over social media! 
I wanted the August kit to be summery but not too bright & not too Fall either! It was a delicate mix of bright colors in bold patterns, it came together as a beautiful, free spirited, boho-esk theme. Beautiful succulents, surrounded by gorgeous floral sprays, adorned with rough cut gem stones & whimsical feathers. It was a beautiful garden of summer feels! 

As I started pulling all the elements together it became apparent to me that I was going to need to find fabrics & accessories to match these bold & unique patterns! I looked everywhere & found nothing I loved! I was panicky & worried that my vision wasn’t going to come together cohesively! 
About a week before we drove to Michigan to pick up the kiddos, I found spoonflower and fell hard! I immediately ordered fabrics in the patterns I had created for the kit & added them as a rush, so I could work on the kit on the road! Nothing like 3600 miles of craft time! When the fabric came in I was floored! It was gorgeous! 

From there the creative bug caught me & I started creating some amazing pieces for the accessories to complement & match perfectly! 

In the end, the quote was what sealed the deal! ‘Life is full of prickles, just hang on & bloom where you were planed’! Sometimes you are hanging with a cactus or succulent & others you may be enjoying a beautiful arranged floral masterpiece. No matter what or where… just bloom! 
Thank you all for your love and support! 
😘Lauren
