New Release: Planner Stamps

Hi all,

How many of you are really into day planners?  I'm talking about the Erin Condren Life Planner, Emily Ley Simplied Planner, Whitney English Day Designer, Filofax, etc...?  In today's world, most of our schedules are kept on our phone, in Google Calendar, Outlook Calendar, etc... but there's something refreshing about writing stuff down in a traditional planner.  So this is how I've managed to incorporate both into my life.

For my corporate life, everything is stored in one of my devices.  I have so many shared calendars for work, so Google Calendar and my iPhone calendar helps a ton with that.  But when it comes to my blogs and craft projects, I really keep my own schedule.  I have deadlines for various design teams and I have random projects I schedule on my own.  That's where day planners come in handy.  I am currently using the Erin Condren Life Planner.  It's SO CUTE!  Plus, it's a cross between planning and scrapbooking and STICKERS!  Sounds awesome, right?  I am also contemplating a review of the Emily Ley Simplified Planner in 2016... we'll see.

Today I'm featuring some new planner stamps from  The set that I was asked to review was actually a baby-themed planner set.  Since I am not expecting a baby any time soon, I just used the stamps that were relevant for everyone.

Below are two snapshots of a recent weekly spread using these planner stamps. Specifically, I used the following stamps:

  • Due Date
  • Push Pin box
  • Water Cups
  • Favorite Moments
  • Snacks
For the day labels, I print my own headers on a large plain sticker sheet and cut them with a paper trimmer.  I'm in the process of organizing using the Kon Mari method, so one of my buckets is titled "Kon Mari" -- but I am not going through it as fast as I was planning.  Sometimes work gets in the way :-)

I also used the stamp set to create this baby shower card.  I stamped a few of the images in different color inks and die cut an umbrella from the Paper Smooches baby shower die set.

That's all for today.  Happy planning!

Look forward to your feedback and any fun ideas I should incorporate into my card designs. Or just say hello!
