Ooh-La-La Parisian Filofax


Good Day People, or should I address all as “Bonjour!”
Today I scoured a couple of my local craft stores for items Parisian themed. Why is it when I have an idea I can never find anything that I have in my head? I came back home a tad disappointed to say the least. Then I began sifting through my current “Stash” of Filofax inserts/dividers, card stock and washi tape.
I’m not one to wait for items to become available to me. I am the type that is incredibly impatient. If there is something planted in my head, at the time it is incredibly important that I have it right NOW. Realising I sound a little like a spoiled brat right now, I promise I’m not that kind of girl – I just have these incredibly strong emotions when I have an idea – it needs to be released as soon as possible from me, and then I’m free to move on to the next idea. So, with that in mind, I realised I’d have to ‘make do and mend’ with what I already had. Which wasn’t much…
Anyhow, here is what I got up to:

Taking blank Filofax cotton cream divider tabs (pack of 4) that came with an old Filofax I purchased a while back, a Stamp, and a Distress Ink (you’ll notice I’ve gone back to basics on this little project – lots of old ideas came back out to play!)I continuously stamped the divider to make it look like a letter.

Next, I worked on two Filofax Today Markers, using washi tape and lace adhesive.

I then used the same lace and washi tape on the dividers, just to give it a more uniform look. The lace is on the tab, if you can’t see the photograph clearly 😉

My muse, and a French Icon, Brigitte Bardot, is my front cover, a photograph taken from a book, stuck onto a parisian themed white and pink striped page from the same book and decorated with lace and a film strip washi tape.

You’ll see that I’ve placed the inserts in my Deco, rather than the Finsbury.  I thought the pink was a little toooooo much…

All put together here’s how it’s looking!

Naturally I had to pair the look with a marabou topped pen!

I know it’s not “proper” Parisian Themed, but hey ho, I quite like the simple design.

Have you changed your Filofax up lately?

Filofax: Daisy is Here!

Good morning!

This morning I woke at 5.45am. Usually I wake at 7am. Today was the day that I was going to pick up my new PA, Daisy.

You may or may not know that I have been lusting after 2 certain Filofaxes for AGES! Because of my unhappiness lately etc, I decided as part of my little Project Kel I would treat myself to a new Filofax. One that was ludicrously expensive in my eyes. One that I had been really sighing over for the last few months.

I recently got it into my head that certain Filofaxes make me lucky and happy, and certain Filofaxes make me feel sad and unlucky. Certain remind me of good times, and certain remind me of unhappy times. Does this make any sense? Does anyone else feel this?

For example, my Orange Osterley (Ozzie!) is so lucky and happy for me. I’ve had some amazing times with him. But there are other Filofaxes that have seen me at my worst.

And so, I thought, why not start my new Project off with a lovely new positive Filo?

I just happened to browse the Philofaxy Adspot page when I saw the photo: standing out from the rest of the pack. I knew I had to have her! So I mailed her owner, Ena at Filomanie and was so upset to hear someone else was interested. The next day however, much to my surprise, Ena got in touch to say her original buyer had backed out and I could have her if I was still interested! Interested I was! I paid for her that evening and she was posted out the following day.

I tracked her religiously from the moment I got the tracking number, so excited!

At 7am, I was lurking outside my local post office waiting for it to open. Don’t you think it’s time England had an EVENING SERVICE? huh?! I could have picked her up last night and fawned over her a lot longer!

Anyhow…

And here we go…

Ta-Da! Daisy the Deco!

I got the inspiration from the Great Gatsby, if you can’t guess already ;).

She came with lots and lots of inserts, flyleaf, 2013 diary, addresses, to do, expenses, notepaper, dividers, today marker, business card holders, world map etc… But I wanted to move in (and didn’t have much time to do it before work so here are the quick photos 🙂 )

And there we have it! Daisy is here and I’m so ecstatic!

What are your thoughts on the deco? Are there any other deco owners out there still? Or are they now extinct?!

Off to do my full working day now!

Catch you later
