Hello friends! Today, Wendy, owner of Repeat Impressions asked me to post a Project of the Week. I was just getting ready to do my monthly planner entries for the week and thought I’d show you how I organize and use Repeat Impressions stamps for mine.
After trying out SEVERAL planners, one with 2 page monthly entries seems to work best for me. Here are the supplies:
Repeat Impressions tiny stamps
small ink spot
any small dies that would fit
small calendar stickers
I went thru all my Repeat Impressions stamps and picked out all the small ones that would fit in the days of the week boxes. Then I stamped them on a guide and put them all in a plastic sleeve. This I keep in a container marked “Daily Planner Stamps & Dies” with the tape runner, washi, small ink spot and any other small things I might use.
And this is how I store them.
I keep all these supplies in this small plastic container so that once a week (usually on a Sunday afternoon) it is easy to pull this out and work out the week’s schedule. This only takes about 15-20 minutes.
Here is what the beginning calendar looks like. As the month goes on – the schedule changes and gets more stickers, stamps and tape runner on it.
I think setting out a specific schedule to do this and keeping all the supplies in one container helps makes this go quickly. If I have time I’ll do a little coloring with pencils. On the 28th do you see the rabbit in the hat? — that’s my evening to cook dinner — and believe me that’s like pulling a rabbit out of the hat!!
Keeping a written schedule is quite easy if all the supplies are together and a small amount of time each week is set aside. Using the stamps and coloring them helps me to remember what the week holds for me to do.
Thanks for looking at my project – hope you give it a try.
