Clearly Planned November 2016 Release

Hello everyone!!  Yayyy!! Its release day for Taylored Expression Clearly Planned stamps today!!


Lets get started:


For this release I created four different list using the new Makin’ a List 2 paired with the Sticky Situation sheets. I love these list. Super fun and keeps me on point!


For the daily photo, I will fill that list in everyday.  I will document the 30 days of Thankfulness!

The little animals are a new set as well called Planner Pals!

Next Up:


My weekly spread is all about the weather using Today’s Weather Stamp set! Super cute set for all of your weather concerns.  I paired it with the Playful Alpha and the Sign Me Up Stamp set which are also new sets.

Next up!


For my monthly spread, I used the Planner Pals and the Playful Alpha stamp set!




I’m in love with my planner this month. These stamps are so cute and amazing this month.

You are going to love the new release this month.

Thanks for stopping by!!



Clearly Planned Week and Custom Post-It Note

Hello everyone!!!  Today is the day for the big Clearly Planned Release!!


I have a lot to share so lets get started!

Full Planner Spread KT

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:

First Page KT

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.

Page Two.1 KT

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!!

Clearly Planned Monthly August Spread

Hello everyone!!  I’m so excited to be here today.  This is my first official post as a design team member for the Clearly Planned Creative Team.

Clearly Planned DT

I have a couple of sneak peek photos to share with you so let me get started.

August 2016 Montly with Sticky Note by Kymona Tracey

I’m a planner newbie so trying to decide what I wanted to do on my pages took some thought.  I decided that my monthly spread needed to be easy to see at a quick glance.  The majority of my time is spent at my full time day job so being able to see what days are free makes it easy for me to plan all of my events.

Take a closer look:

August 2016 Monthly Page One by Kymona Tracey

The beginning of the week. Packed with a couple of the new stamps sets that will amaze you.

August Monthly Page Two Sticky Note by Kymona Tracey

The end of the weeks with my goal sheet.
This goal sheet and the die cut frame are two of the accessories of the Clearly Planned release.

August 2016 Montly Page Two without Sticky Note by Kymona Tracey

The end of the week minus the goal sheet.
I also added some of Taylored Expressions already released stamps to my page to show you how you can combine the old with the new.

All of the new Clearly Planned stamps are amazing.  I love all of the color-in images.  I can customize the colors that I use on my pages. I can see myself using the color-in stamps the most.  I also love how all of the stamp sets can be used separately or together.

 I can’t wait for all of you to see the new release.  You will love them.

Here are some of the details:

All of the new products will be available for purchase at the Taylored Expressions webstore on Thursday, August 18th, at 7am PST.
