This month’s project is a personalized planner!
FYI, Darby Smart does not include instructions in their boxes. Instead, they provide a URL where you can go and see a video plus written instructions online. The instructions for this project can be found here.
These are the materials that were included for the project. Usually, the things you have to supply yourself are things most people definitely have. This month I had to provide scissors and glue. It’s not a big deal, but I wish they had included a glue stick. Working with paper is so much easier with glue sticks instead of regular glue.
Here are some of the dividers I decorated inside. I think it turned out pretty nice and was relatively easy to do. That being said, this isn’t my favorite type of craft. I don’t have the patience for scrapbooking! I also found this “planner” pretty confusing, and I wasn’t sure what to do with all the little cards and stickers. How many times does a calendar page need to say “September” for example? And if I did print photos ever, why would I put them in a planner? The whole idea kind of baffles me, personally. I bet lots of people were stoked for this project, though!
Verdict: Darby Smart is a really fun craft subscription box, and I usually really like their project selections. I think I have about an 80% success rate of my projects turning out good or better, too. This months project wasn’t for me, but like I said, I bet there were loads of people who were very happy this month.
