Hero Arts + Clearly Kelly Planner Blog Hop


Hello everyone, today I am thrilled to be participating in a Blog Hop for Hero Arts! You should be arriving from Suzanne Dahlber's blog and I welcome you if you are a first time visitor here. I'm very excited to be celebrating along with these amazing ladies the launch of the Clearly Kelly Planner Stamps officially hitting the Hero Arts online store today! Kelly's range of planner stamps is fantastic and I'm looking forward to sharing what I have made with them. Because at their heart they are planner stamps I used them to dress up my October Monthly Calendar and I love how festive it looks.


Below you can see the stamps in action up close. I think my favorite stamp is the Taco from the Food Planner Set, what's not to love about Taco Tuesday! I also really love the School Planner set, it covers all of my needs for my daughter and also for my volunteering jobs. I used both of the list stamps to fill in some space at the bottom of my calendar, the square check boxes are from the To Do List set and in this case I just inked one of the little boxes and stamped them on the lines that were already printed on the calendar. This allowed me to get them spaced just the way I needed them to be. The other check list stamp is from the Work Planner set. I love the circles that can be checked off as each task is completed. The other sets I used to create this calendar are; Planner Icons, Home Planner, Work Planner and the Special Occasion Planner. These are all super versatile sets that I mixed and matched to help make exactly what I needed.


One of my other favorite sets is the Planner Banners, I love this set because I love cutting out the little banner dies to help dress up my planner pages. For these tabs I just laid down strips of washi tape onto a scrap piece of cardstock and then ran the die thru the machine. It cuts thru both layers with no problem and I love that I can make banners to match any theme I might want just by using different washi tapes or cardstock. The little circle clip is a die from the Everyday Clips set and I love that it was the perfect size for the black cat stamp from the Planner Icons set.

You can also see here how I changed up the days of the week on the calendar. I covered the banner of the days of the week on this calendar with a thin piece of washi tape and then stamped the days of the week in the order I prefer using with the stamps from the Planner Clips Stamp & Cuts. This is a really simple fix for your monthly calendars if you are like me and prefer a certain order.



To continue with my Halloween theme I added in some orange and black shipping tags to my front pockets. The printed tag was made by cutting up a note card that I purchased at Target. The paper clips were made by gluing the resin pieces that I found at Hobby Lobby directly to the top of the paperclips. I love how these seasonal clips can be used all month and fit in perfectly with the theme.


There are so many amazing stamp sets in Kelly's Planner line so I know you will have fun shopping for stamps today and the Hero Arts online store offers FREE shipping on US orders of $50 or more! No code needed.

  8. It's fun to see how everyone uses these stamps. There are so many great ideas I like your Halloween banner clip.

    I don't have a favorite, but I do like the take note, planner banners, to do list, work planner and those ink cubes. Any of these products would be fun to have so I can play in own my planner.

  12. Like the mini stamps & washi tape. Like the taco stamp. We found a taco shop we like named Torchy's. I use to do a planner that was more a business style. My hubby would gift me one for a Christmas present but the store stopped carrying the refill pages. Thanks for giveaway chance.

  50. I was wondering if you knew where to get a planner that uses the paper that just pops out, rather than the paper that you would have to open the binder and put them in. I want to keep organized but I don't want to have to use a three hole punch on everything.
