Hello Readers! Today I wanted to share another way I use my stamps with you. As you all know, I LOVE playing with ink and stamps. I try to get the most out of my stamps. I recently got a new Erin Condren planner. If you haven't checked out Erin Condren planners, use my refer link for $10 off your order: https://www.erincondren.com/referral/invite/michellemcgraw0621 . I use Erin Condren Teacher planner for homeschooling my two youngest kids. I just got a new planner to use and also using my Erin Condren notebook with productivity pages in them. I AM ORGANIZED!!! That's how much I love Erin Condren products.
When I got my new planner, I wanted to decorate it a little bit. My problem with decorating my planner is that I can get carried away decorating and then I run out of room to actually USE my planner. For this planner, I wanted to keep it simple. My Kindred Stamps were perfect to decorate my planner!
I want to first say, I REALLY struggled with photographing the planner pages. Due to the hologram washi tape that I used, if I got the light to bright, the hologram tape glowed and nothing else showed. Talk about frustrating....I think this was the third attempt to change up the lighting.
For each page, I chose one stamp set to use from Kindred Stamps. The first page I had to use my favorite inspired princess stamp: this one is called Indian Princess. On each page I used the stamped image of the character cut out using my Brother Scan N Cut machine and colored with my copics. Sometimes I added other images from the stamp set, sometimes I just used the main image. Around each character, I went online and research a quote from the inspired movie and added it to my planner. Each quote I used was just one that I really liked. My own personal pick-me up quote! I used that bugger-some hologram washi tape as accents. It looks fantastic in person, but geesh, who knew it would be so troublesome to photograph!!
I love this inspired stamp set: Scottish Princess. She was a lot of fun to color. I used a dotted coloring method to color her. Just something different and fun! Each page has a color theme to match the main character on that page, the washi tape matches as does the pen that I write in. My favorite pens are Paper Mate Ink Joy pens. They feel good in my hand, easy to write with and come in a variety pack for many color options.
I left in this picture so you can see the washi tape in different lighting.
These are just a couple of pages that I've done. I will share more soon. I might try some outside middle of the day lighting to see how that looks.
Here is my the front of my planner. I love camo so I had to order the camo planner, plus I got to customize the color on the front and add my name to it. Pink poppin' camo! I'm in love! (I also bought a matching case too!!!)
I really enjoyed decorating my planner using stamps. I used what I had on hand, my stamps. I got to be creative but I still have plenty of room to actually USE my planner to stay organized. I just ordered some other fun inspired stamps from Kindred Stamps. I can't wait to get them and play. They have the cutest stamps and themes. I have a LONG wish list at Kindred Stamps!!
