New Products To Help You Organize

These two brand new stamp sets will help you keep track of all your school-related activities in the busy year ahead. Carpooling, lunches, volunteering, concerts, days off: Planner - School covers all this and more. Students will benefit from using a planner or even a simple pocket calendar to stay organized, which they'll find a lot more fun when they can stamp a cute ruler with a smiley face on it to remind them of their math homework!

A Ticket Book for Concerts!

Concert lover? Here's a fun and quick idea for you: Make a mini book to save your ticket stubs in.

Concert Ticket Mini Book fro Technique Tuesday // TechniqueTuesday.comThis is such an easy project to make. Start by cutting some pages from cardstock. Make them as big or as little as you want. Poke holes through the pages and then bind them together with a round binding ring.

Give your pages some pizzazz by decorating them with stamps and die-cuts. The dies from Technique Tuesday's Music Maker dies provided the perfect decorative element for the cover of my book!

Concert Ticket Mini Book from Technique Tuesday // TechniqueTuesday.comSauce up your pages with stamping. The Planner - Music stamp set has lots of words and icons that work well in a book about going to concerts so I used it liberally throughout my book! You may want to try using stamps from the Turn Up The Volume and Make Music stamp sets in your book. 

Another fun idea for your book is to add a few words about each show to it. Whether it was the best show over or not so much, it's great way to really add a personal touch to your album.


PS. Got a musician in your life and need a little memory keeping inspiration? Check out the scrapbook page Daniela Dobson made about her son playing drums. It's so fun!



Quick and Practical Planner Stickers

Hi everyone!

Are you a planner? Then you are going to love today's post!

We've got special guest Ashley Gray here again with some stickers she made for her planner with some of Technique Tuesday's planner stamps

Planner stickers for Technique Tuesday from Ashley Gray //

Do you have stamps to use in your planner but are afraid to stamp them in your planner? This is a great way to use them. Rather than stamping on your planner, grab a couple sheets of label stickers and then stamp on them. That way if you mess up, you can just use a different label and start over!

Let's Plan with Ashley

Hi all!

Are you a planner? Well, I think you are going to enjoy today's post. We've got special guest Ashley Gray here with a couple of her planner pages!

Ashley is a talented planner and paper crafter, who hails from the Pacific Northwest. 

Ashley Gray"My name is Ashley and I am a stay at home mom to 2 active little boys. I have many hobbies and have been crafting for 15 years. I just recently got back into card making again and stamping. Love learning all these new techniques and sharing my creations."

Stamps are a great way to decorate your planner. Just check out how Ashley used several of Technique Tuesday's planner stamps with Washi tape to decorate these two pages. 

Planner Pages by Ashley Gray for Technique Tuesday//TechniqueTuesday.comOne especially fun idea from Ashley is how she stamped some of the icons from the Planner - Chores and Planner - Chow Down stamp sets with black ink. To give them a little extra personality, she colored them in. 

Want to try this at home? Colored pencils are a great tool to use when coloring on planner pages because the colors won't bleed through. Another idea is to stamp onto sticker paper. Color the images in and then fussy cut the stickers so you can use them on your planner pages.

Planner Pages by Ashley Gray for Technique Tuesday//

Another fun idea from Ashley can be found along the bottom of her planner pages. To plan ahead for the week's meals, she stamped the fork, knife and spoon from the Planner - Family Time set and then jotted down what the meal would be. Great idea! 

To see more of Ashley's work, check out her blog and Instagram feed! And be sure to stop by again next Thursday to see something else she's made with Technique Tuesday's products. Hope to see you then!

Start by cutting a page to fit inside your planner. You'll also want cut a strip of cardstock to fit along the top or side.
