Sparkler Squads Unite November 1st Blog Hop!

Hello SMS fans!  Welcome to another Sparkler Squads Unite blog hop!  The SMS squads team up on the first of every month to bring you crafty inspiration featuring the fun goodies from the SMS shop!  Be sure to comment on all of the posts in the hop for a chance to win a prize from the shop!  You should have arrived here from Christy's blog!  I'm sure you enjoyed here post!  For today's post I created a fun planner spread using the new items from the Simple Stories Reset Girl Collection.  Here it is:

I started with ephemera, papers and clips from the Reset Girl.  I grabbed a bunch of goodies from the shop, and got going!

I started by stitching together two pieces of patterned paper from the collection with gold thread on my sewing machine.  I added some ephemera, an enamel dot, a gem and a pearl.

Next, I cut down an extra 6x8 pocket page protector and filled it with Gold Sweetheart Confetti Sequins on the top and Mocha Mint Dream Mix on the bottom.  I sewed it shut with my sewing machine.  I added the ephemera directly on the top of the pocket page using my EZ Runner Grand.

Then I got to filling up my pockets.  I added a Large Gold Foil Doily and a White Paper Lace Doily to the large back pocket along with a few stickers and a washi sampler.  I tucked different pieces of ephemera and paper clips in the various pockets.  I added a few die cut gold glitter leaves and a Mini Wood Clothespin.

My planner is all ready for November thanks to the Reset Girl and the SMS shop!  I hope you enjoyed the planner spread today!  Next you are headed over to Hannah's blog!  Don't forget to hop along to all of the posts and comment for your chance to win a prize from the shop!
