Your Next Stamp August Release Hop and Birthday Celebration



Happy birthday to you, happy birthday to you, happy birthday to Your Next Stamp, happy birthday to you!!!!

This month is a great month for birthday celebrations! I celebrated a rather big birthday earlier this week and now we are celebrating the 7th birthday for Your Next Stamp! It's also time to share the new August released stamps and dies, so there are a lot of reason to be happy and celebrating right now.

Today we have an amazing blog hop to showcase so many fabulous stamps, dies and now paper! This month we have a number of talented guest joining us for our birthday hop celebration. Sit back, grab a beverage and maybe a pen and paper to joint down an item or two or three for your wish list.

Do you have a planner? I actually have two at the moment. My first planner was a homemade one using a small binder, however printing my own planner pages was taking too much time. Recently I decided to change my planner and switched over to the Simple Stories Carpe Diem planner. What better to break in my new planner than using fabulous new planner stamps. I had a great time decorating my August page with the new Rec and Leisure planner set along with a number of other stamps from this months release.


I didn't want to create a lot of bulk with my planner by adding a lot of extra paper and stickers. I used the Lots of Dots edge stamp to fill in the empty date square and the Mini Letters and Numbers stamp to mark my days.


I don't colour in my planner, however I do like to used a lot of fun ink colours to document events and activities each month. I also like to colour code some activities for each member of the family.

YNS products used: Rec and Leisure Planning, Mini Letters and Numbers, Birthday Chickie, Lots of Dots Edge, Love to Plan One. Other Items: Simple Stories Sunshine and Happiness

For my second card, I used the darling Bluebell Bunny stamp and die, along with the Stitched Rectangle die to create a simple layered card.

  42. Hi Tracy ~ Such a fun set of stamps for planners. I did my own version of a planner when my kids were little (they're all adults and getting married now) and I would have LOVED if there were planners like this "back in the day." Your sweet little bunny in your card is absolutely perfect!! Such a sweet little cutie-patootie!! Thanks so much for sharing and inspiring.
