Dear Lizzy Weekly Planner

24 Feb

The latest Dear Lizzy collection from American Crafts, Neapolitan, is definitely one of those collections that I simply cannot allow to sit around collecting dust.  Its just so…pretty.  I used it to make a weekly dry-erase planner.  I figured with it getting a little busier around here, I should have something more detailed and more visual compared to the monthly calendar.  The base is simply a 12×18 inch acrylic poster frame.

(My favorite part about this project?  All of the strips of patterned paper are actually the branding strips from the 12×12 sheets…meaning I get to hoard the actual paper while still putting out a pretty, fun, and functional piece of home decor.)

I’m thinking I should paint and distress the black pieces holding the whole thing together.  That or ditch them altogether in favor of binder clips covered in patterned paper/twine.  Any thoughts?
