Layle is the Director of Marketing at Simple Stories, so who better to show us the Planner Punch and all of the fun you can have with it? From d.i.y. planner dashboards to d.i.y. planner inserts, we got some ideas that we can't wait to try in our own planners. If you missed the Facebook Live video, you can see it right here to scoop up all of her fun ideas. 

Just like promised in the video, we have a little extra about Layle here on the blog! She answered a fun Q&A for us to give you guys a little more insight about her creative life!

layle koncarName: Layle Koncar

 Occupation: Director of Marketing at Carpe  Diem/Simple Stories 

 A trend I am currently loving: Traveler's notebooks

 Always on my desk: My Macbook, Carpe Diem planner,  and Hydro Flask water bottle

 A tip for new crafters: YouTube. Decide what you want to craft and then find & watch a YouTube video on how to do it. With literally millions of YouTube videos out there, you'll have plenty of videos right at your fingertips for pretty much any craft you want to take on, even underwater basket weaving (yes, there really is a YouTube video for that)! 

Favorite season: Summer, hands down. I love the flowers, smell of green grass, the heat, longer days, the water... I could go on and on. 

Crafting item I can't get enough of: Sharpie Black Fine Point .5 mm Pen. I use it on everything. 

My go-to Starbucks order: Grande Non-Fat Sugar-Free Hazelnut Latte, for SUE. Can't use my real name, not only does the spelling get butchered on the cup, but they can't come anywhere close to pronouncing it :) Problem is, half the time I forget I told them Sue and then wonder why my coffee is taking so long! 

My favorite quote: "Don't compare your beginning to someone else's middle."

Favorite new collection/release: The Simple Stories' Summer Days collection (see fav. season, above!) 

Something a lot of people don't know about me: As the sole girl, I played on the all boys soccer team at my high school. 

I collect: Is my husband going to read this!? If not, here goes - planners, traveler's notebooks, pens, roller stamps, stuff from the Target One Spot, WASHI TAPE... should I go on?

Here are some photos from her tutorial, showcasing some of the fun projects she made using the Carpe Diem A5 Planner Punch.
