Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps November Preview: Day One - Perfect Planner

Hello Krafty friends and welcome to our first day of previews for the November release at KRAFTIN' KIMMIE STAMPS. This month we have a SUPER SIZED release so sit back and enjoy all of the fabulous previews.

Today's sweet set is called the PERFECT PLANNER and it's by the multi-talented krafty girl and artist Becky Pearce. This fun set is great for keeping your planners and calendars organized and looking pretty. 

I have a planner that I use each day, however I decided to showcase this amazing set in another way. I created a 12 x 12 calendar page that I will display in the house to keep the family organized for the month. 

I have always loved keeping a little calendar on hand. Despite having a phone that I do use for appointments and reminder, I have recently found myself relying more onto my planner to keep me organized. I feel like I remember things a lot better this way and I get to play with my craft supplies in a new way.

I created this calendar page for December and hope to create one for each month next year. In addition to the PERFECT PLANNER set, I also used the holiday sets SLEIGH MAIL and BUILD YOUR OWN TRINKET set.

I used paper from Simple Stories December Documented collection. I love the colours in this set and the stickers and various cut apart pages really allowed for some fun elements on this calendar page.

The calendar is 12 x 12 and each of the daily blocks measure 1.5 inches. I wrote out the date for each square, however you could also stamp them, if you have a small number set.

For the days of the week headings, I printed these out on the computer and then cut them down to size (1.5 x 5/8 inches).

I was able to get creative with the set too by creating my own saying. The set includes 'school' as one of your options. As the kids are off over Christmas holidays, I wanted to indicate no school. I took the 'no' from the word notes and just inked up the first two letters. I did all the no's at one time, then stamped 'school' after. Easy modification!

Supplies Used:
Stamps: Perfect Planner, Sleigh Mail and Build Your Own Trinket (Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps)
Paper: Simple Stories December Documented
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Tim Holtz Vintage Photo, Tattered Rose, Peeled Paint, Mowed Lawn, Dusty Concord, Salty Ocean, and Peacock Feathers Distress Ink
