Hello everyone!!! Today is the day for the big Clearly Planned Release!!
I have a lot to share so lets get started!
My weekly pages need to be full of detail so that I don’t miss all of the important things I have to do each day. Repeat stamping with the By Appointment stamp set allows me to see and remember the small task that can get lost during the day. My favorite stamps set from this collection is the Sneak a Peek stamp set. I love coloring those little animals. They make my pages fun.

Here is a closer look:
I went with the color scheme of the pages, which was pink and black. I added gold because it adds pop to the pages. So I added washi tape to start off with. Then I stamped the little animals from the Sneak a Peek stamp set to fill in some pages. Coloring these images allowed me to bring in some my cardmaking skills to my planner pages.
Having a full time job, doesn’t allow me to do much during the week. The weekend is where most of my action happens. Its shameful that I only have two days. For this page, you can see what I have to do around my house and with my children.
Let take a closer look at some of my own personal style:
Watercoloring is my favorite medium to work with. It is fun and free of judgment. I created my own journaling card out of watercolor paper. I stamped and embossed using the Makin’ a List stamp set. I love how it turned out. It adds a piece of who I am to the pages.
I created another watercolor panel to die cut some butterflies out to add to the pages as embellishments.
For this cute giraffe for the Sneak a Peek stamp set, I extended the giraffe’s neck by masking what I already stamped and stamp only the neck again. Another card making technique.
Besides the new stamps and dies, the Clearly Planned line also has a collection called Sticky Situation. They are these super cute sticky notes that works well with the Makin’ a List stamp set. I absolutely love them.
I added the sticky note directly on my page to list out all of the things I need to do for the week using the same Makin’ a List stamp set. Its a check list so as I complete the task I can check it off and move on to the next thing.
Since my list is long, it will take me a couple of days to complete these task so adding it to two days in my spread is awesome. I can see what I have to do for those two days. Also if I need to change or add to those days, I can lift the sticky note and write directly on the page.
I have to say for a newbie, I really love how my pages turned out!! I’m impressed with myself and how pretty these blank pages turned out!!
