I've been stamping and crafting for a very long time...more years than I care to think of. However, I recently discovered that I really needed a way to keep some things a bit more organized in a more visual way. Stamps to the rescue! Pink & Main's soon to be released Planner Stamp sets were perfect to help me notch it up. I'm very happy to have been chosen to highlight two stamp sets for them from their Planner series.
My life revolves around 4 distinct areas, 1,2) home and family; 3) work; and 4) my business. I assigned each area a color and then the beauty of the process unfolded - there's still some tweaking to do, but I have been testing it for a month and it's working very well. I wanted to share just a little of this coming's month's calendar...
So choose your planner (I chose to print mine using a calendar feature in one of my editing programs (Print Shop - PC version). The calendar version I chose allowed me some space on the left side to trim the pages. I used the 3 in trimmed piece as an add on for some notes and space to enter additional information that may not have fit on the page. My accountant has been after me too... so I made sure to add some additional information for credits and debits for tax purposes under this decorative piece I eBrushed using stencils. :)
And here's another sheet:
The left margin of the page also allows me space to document hours worked or note feelings or the weather.... I'm taking advantage of noting our very active Spring weather here and doing a little doodling which is very soothing to me.
I used my comb binder to secure all my pages... you could use an 8 x 8 photo album too and just punch your pages to secure them on the posts. I like that I can add additional pages as needed including photos if the mood strikes!
please accept my apologies for the dark images.... our weather has been terribly cloudy and sunshine has been a rarity in recent days -- no, make that weeks!
Thanks for dropping by. Stay tuned, as I have two more projects using these stamps to be shared soon.
