ClearSnap® July Color Challenge - DIY Planner Cover

Hello, Crafty Peeples!
These colors are so in my wheel house!  
My regular visitors know that I like creating projects from scratch using recycled materials. These colors seemed perfect for my 2017 Purse Size DT Planner.  Yes, I could buy a planner and alter it, but I figure I already bought the cereal box, so why not cut it up, fix it up, and keep it out of the landfill!  Yeah!

I am so impressed with the convenience of the ColorBox® 4-Color Premium Dye Ink Pads.  Using these pads and two ColorBox® Stylus Tools with Tips, I was able to easily switch between colors.

I think these red binding combs work really well with my decoupaged image and the fabulous colors!
