Top 3 Cat Washi Tapes

I am so jealous of anyone who can produce gorgeous planner spreads. It’s something I’ve always struggled with, possibly because of the massive roadblock in my head whenever it comes to creativity. (I’m working on it.) I’m starting to come to terms with it, giving myself permission to be a little bit wild and free with my planning, but I still want to make it pretty, and one very popular way is through adding washi tape. So, since my Passion Planner arrived last week I’ve been trawling the internet for nice washi tape that can add the perfect embellishments to my weekly plans. And, of course, I had to find some cat themed tape.

After not much searching, I found these gorgeous examples. Payday can’t come soon enough!

Cat Washi Tape by Cynthia Renard

Cat Washi Tape Exclusive to Cynthia Renard on Etsy

I love simple designs and gold foil, so fell in love with this tape as soon as I saw it. And Cynthia doesn’t just sell tape – she also sells a range of planner stencils which might just encourage me to stretch my creative planning!

Meow Washi Tape by Doodle Bug Design Inc

I found this simple tape for sale by LouTinenEvents on Etsy. My handwriting is shocking, so I can’t decide if this beautiful written meow would make my planner look better or just make my handwriting look worse in comparison. Either way, I want it.

Cute Happy Cat Washi Tape by Amifa

This tape is a little more pricy than the previous offerings (especially once shipping is taken into consideration) but it’s so pretty I’m not sure I would mind. I love the little bowties that add a little extra colour, plus the tuxedo cat looks just like my mum’s cat Hector!

What about you guys? Do you have a planner accessory you’ve been lusting after? Or do you just have one in your collection that you covet? Let me know below!

Wishlist Wednesday: Enamel Cat Introvert Pin

I am a massive introvert. It is no secret. I will actively avoid any situation that requires too many other people, instead hiding under my duvet until everyone else leaves. But that always creates awkwardness between myself with others. So, imagine my delight when I was browsing Etsy and stumbled across this? I have never fallen in love as quickly as I did when I found this pin by DiglotEtc.

Three pin badges, in pink, blue or white, all saying 'I would rather be at home with my cat'

This has just the right amount of cuteness and sassiness for the perfect accessory. It also makes my thoughts clear to others straight away. No matter how much fun I’m having, I’m always going to prefer being at home with my cat. This is going right to the top of my wishlist, so I can wear my introvert, cat loving status with pride.

How about you guys? Is there anything you’ve added to your wishlist this week? Comment below!

Cat-Opoly

My family very rarely play board games – it’s usually reserved for Christmas and if the power goes out. However, given we’re (mostly) all massive cat fans, I feel this board game might just change that.

Cat-Opoly

Isn’t this just the best? You move your cat-themed token around the board, buying cat breeds instead of the traditional London Streets. But, if you’re unlucky you land straight in the water as other prowl past you. I might have to buy this just so we can have a game night before I move away this autumn (although I can imagine the fights if I can’t buy the Ragdoll square!)

The Very Hungry Caterpillar Fabric

Most people who know me see me as quite crafty, but my response to that (at least in my head) is ‘Yeh, but I can’t sew.’ I touch a sewing machine and it breaks. The only thing I’ve ever made is a pocket belt thing, and that was only because it was required of me for the wardrobe module of my degree. But this week’s wishlist item really, really tempts me to dig out the sewing machine and give it another go.

Catepillar Fabric

As I’m sure most of you are aware, this fabric is inspired by ‘The Very Hungry Caterpillar’ by Eric Carle. I fell in love with it on sight, and started designing my dream dress. Maybe one day soon I’ll make that dream a reality!

 

Wishlist Wednesday: Lawn Fawn

Back in April, I managed to find some time off work to head to the Craft 4 Crafters show. On my best behaviour, I stuck to a strict budget, but temptation came in the shape of these next products. I resisted and put them on my mental wishlist instead, but it was a definite struggle.

I fall in love with anything cute and quirky, so of course I immediately fell in love with Lawn Fawn! The punny sentiments are just an added bonus. Plus, many of their amazing designs combine both dies and stamps, making for some amazing card designs.

It’s impossible for me to pick just one thing for my wishlist this week, so here’s my top three Lawn Fawn products of the moment that I hope to have coming my way soon!

1. Pizza My Heart

Pizza. PIZZA. There aren’t many things I love as much as pizza, which is  why this cute little stamp set is top of my wishlist. Don’t get my started on the cute little faces that you can add to these slices!

2. Critters Ever After

Hippogriffs and Dragons and Unicorns oh my! I have some perfect fairy tale themed cardstock I could partner with this for some adorable cards.

3. Plan on It

I love organisation and planning, and this stamps would made my Filofax even more beautiful! I’ve been tempted by bullet journaling recently as well, and this stamp set might make it a little less daunting! The tooth will definitely make dentist appointments a little less scary as well – just look at that little guy!
