Good morning, crafty friends! It’s Taylor here today! The wait is finally over and I’m so excited to introduce you to our new Clearly Planned collection! We’ve been keeping quite the secret for the last several months and I can’t wait for you to try our newest products. Designed with planners in mind, our Clearly Planned collection has the same style and personality you’ve come to love from us. You can use them in your existing planner or start fresh in a brand new planner. It won’t be long before you’re hooked on this with this addictively creative art form!
While the core collection of Taylored Expressions stamps will remain in cling mounted red rubber, stamps in our Clearly Planned collection will be made of high quality photopolymer allowing you to see through to stamp these directly into your planner. In addition, we’re debuting our innovative customizable Sticky Notes, new acrylic blocks (including a 1.75″ round sized perfectly for planner stamping), and a load of stamps and dies all designed to work together to create planner pages that will keep you organized AND make you smile!
I’ve got some fun giveaways and a ‘few of my favorite things’ planned for today’s blog post so don’t miss out below. But first, I want to make sure you have the link to find our new goodies:
So like I said, I have two prize packs up for grabs:
Prize Pack #1 includes 1 of each of the Little Bits – Mini Frames
Prize Pack #2 includes the Number Game & Alpha Blocks stamp sets
By leaving a comment and answering my question of the day, you’ll be entered into the drawing to win one of the above two prize packs! Leave your comment before Sunday, August 21st at 11:59pm PST. One entry per person. Winners will be chosen at random and announced on Monday, August 22nd.
I thought I’d start the discussion of a few of my favorite things by answering the question that I just posed to all of you! In true PlaNerd fashion, I have 5 planners; Carpe Diem, Erin Condren Life Planner, 2 Happy Planners, and a spiritual planner I just picked up from the Michael’s Recollections brand. I know there are so many more planners on the market (and someday I’d love to try them all!), but for now I’ve settled on each of these for different reasons. I ‘scrapbook’ my week in the horizontal layout of the Carpe Diem planner, but I prefer the vertical layouts of the Erin Condren and Happy Planner for my weekly layouts of appointments and to-dos.
You have to answer this answer this question on what works best for you and you’ll see our designers using several different brands and layout styles on their beautiful creations in the gallery. So if you’re new to planning, check out the gallery to get an idea of the layout style that works best for you.
We’re offering the new Carpe Diem Posh Planners at the Taylored Expressions webstore. This planner is offered in six different color options and they’re currently available for preorder at a 15% discount!
Next on my list of favorite things is the Sneak a Peek stamp set! These adorable critters were designed to peek in from the boxes of your planner layout or from within one of our four mini frame die cut designs. Or use the frames to highlight special events, occasions, or appointments in your planner!
Plus, the card-maker in me loves that these aren’t just for planners:
Next up on my list of favorites are the Sticky Situation customizable Post-It Notes. Each package comes with 50 sheets of pre-printed repositionable notes that can be customized with our Makin’ a List stamp set. These are great for keeping track of everything from a meal plan to an exercise regimen, or wish lists and grocery lists.
I’m going to leave you with one more of my favorites from our first Clearly Planned release. I’m loving the Chit Chat stamps and the coordinating dies are a bonus! I used them on the above layout as a way to remember some of the funny things our girls said during the week. They’re also a fun addition to the Sneak a Peek critters.
Thanks so much for joining us this week as we shared our big news. I hope you enjoy using our Clearly Planned products as much as I have! Now go on… ‘make your planner pretty’!
