The first thing I did when creating this spread was to stamp out the quote in the “notes” section on my planner. I really wanted to include this quote in my week’s memories and at first was just going to print out the picture of it, but then I had the idea to stamp it in my planner using the Small Tile Alphabet Stamp. It took a bit of time, but I loved how it turned out!

When I’m working on a planner spread, I usually work one half of the spread at a time. I started on the right hand side (the second half of the week) and began by including my typed journaling tag, which listed some of the music on my playlist. Once I had this in place, I started laying out the other pictures and decided where I wanted my journaling blocks. The new solid Basic Shapes Stamp worked just fantastically to create my journaling blocks. You can see where I stamped the notched block lengthwise next to my two photos and journaled inside it. 

I used several of the solid bar-shaped stamps to create journaling blocks on the left hand side of my spread. I then stamped on top of the stamped bar using arrows, hearts, and stars to create layered interest with the icons. I love depth and dimension in my projects, but I don’t like my planner spreads to be bulky. These stamps will work perfectly to create some “layering” on my pages!

Thanks for stopping by! I can’t wait to see how you are using these new stamps on your projects!
