Sweet Stamp Shop: October Planner LayoutPosted: September 28, 2015
I am dreaming of fall while we continue to have 90+ degree weather here in California. I am ready for sweaters, boots, and warm cups of coffee. I instantly fell in love with the Fall Into Christmas set of stamps the second I saw them and knew that I wanted to use them for my October monthly layout. I gathered all of my supplies: Versafine black ink pad, acrylic blocks, colored pencils, and stamps.
I work with my pages removed from my planner (no more wrist gymnastics needed to fill in Tuesday and Wednesday). While planning, I keep my boys’ game schedules, school calendars, and my school calendar in front of me and fill in the calendar accordingly.
Once everything is stamped, I go back and color in the images with colored pencils. I then write in the activities, labels, and times. Pages are then placed back into my planner. I love how fun it is to decorate the top of the calendar with the little stamp icons and words. I do my best to balance to colors used throughout both pages:
Goal setting is really important to me and I love having Bucket Lists to help keep me on track. Inspired by the stamps, I whipped together a Fall Bucket List on a simple tag. I want to keep it as a monthly page marker, so I ran it through my laminator and punched holes in it. The bucket list is made using the same supplies mentioned above: Versafine black ink pad and colored pencils.
Snaps right into place…fall is my absolute favorite time of year. I have intended to bake a pie from scratch for the last three years. I will get it done this year. What is on your Fall Bucket List?
