The base and shade images on January’s Stamp of the Month set make it easy to get beautifully textured images. Here’s how: stamp the solid base in a light color of ink and the matching detail image in a darker color directly over it.

Getting Started with Your Everyday Life Planner

It’s a beautiful week, thanks to the stickers that come with your planner pages! We designed them for organization optimization!

Everyday Life Planner-39First you have the round ones with helpful little icons to place next to tasks on your to-do list—don’t you just love that little gold present? These are great for helping you see at a glance what type of event you are looking at while simultaneously adding a splash of color!

Then there are the rectangular stickers, which you can stamp with the Everyday Life Perfect Plan roller stamp to further color-code your pages. For instance, you’ll notice here that we stamped “PAY DAY!” on a green label so it coordinates with the green dollar sticker.

But maybe you’d prefer to arrange your colors a little differently. Well, thanks to our roller stamp, you can! You can stamp any of its twelve words, phrases, and images onto any stickers you’d like to create your very own personalized system. Here are some tips for stamping onto the stickers:

  • Practice stamping on a scratch piece of paper beforehand so you get a feel for the roller stamp.
  • Start with the stamp leaning slightly toward you. Roll slightly away from you to make sure the whole image gets stamped onto the sticker.
  • It’s okay to go slowly, but be careful not to slide the stamp since that can smear your image.
  • Use the metal guides on the edges of the roller stamp to help with placement of the stamp image.

Last but not least are the fun little flag stickers that complete the sticker set. We really love these because they can be used horizontally or vertically, as you can see on this calendar. That’s what’s great about the entire Everyday Life line—you can use the products in whichever way makes the most sense to you for your everyday life!
