Hero Arts | My Crafty Life Planner. Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello all and thank you for stopping by today to help celebrate Hero Arts Planner Catalog and planner goodies (more about this below)!

I enjoy planning and I probably sometimes plan more than I actually do, but for me this is a good way to stay organized and keep up with my busy blog schedule. I rarely plan anything other than my crafty blog life, so the only permanent planner I have is my crafty one.

I keep two versions of my blog planner – a detailed monthly calendar in a spreadsheet online (there I can move things around easily and type up more info if needed) and a weekly less details but more sketchy paper planner. This blog post is about the second one.

My paper planner usually consists of a list of tasks I need to focus on during this week; I can also make notes as to what I’ve planned, draw quick card sketches and cross out the things I’ve already accomplished (the last part is my most favorite by far, lol!). Here I have Hero Arts Planner Pad (I keep it on my desk by my computer at all times) filled out for this week.

I used a few stamps and also some stamp & die sets to decorate it and break it up into sections. I wanted to add some color to my planner, but also didn’t want it to be too colorful and distracting, so I went with 3 colors – Soft Brown, Butter Bar and Tide Pool. The Soft Brown looks just like the pre-printed brown color on the pad and yellow and teal are nice complimentary colors (I used my Pinterest Inspiration & Color board to come up with good color combo ideas).

The stamp set I was most excited about in this Planner release is the Arts & Crafts one. Here I used a number of little icons and messages to stamp various little bits in my planner. I also stamped several tabs from them Flags stamp & cut set using same Soft Brown ink and finally added several faux washi tape accents. Some where stamped directly onto the planner (like those you see behind the “Make Cards” section) and some were stamped in Butter Bar and Tide Pool onto white cardstock and die cut.

    1. Love your planner! I, too, keep one on my table just for crafting. I lay out the goals for the month and then plan the week in more detail.

    1. oh yes the crossing off part is the best part ! you given me a new view on planners,thank you

    1. Thanks, Yana. I don’t really get into the planner thing, but I do love to embellish everything!!! Maybe I do need these!

    1. I love the beautiful, cohesive look of your planner! The little planner stamps are perfect for this and other projects, too.

    1. I love crossing off what I have done. It gives you such a feeling of accomplishment.

    1. I really like this planner pad. How functional, as my planner is only month at a glance and I have a notebook paper for my “to do” list.

    1. I want to get a planner for next year. It’s on my Christmas list. Love this planner!

    1. Hi Yana, I’m always looking for more ways to get organized! Thanks for sharing what you do!

    1. Love all these little stamps and dies. I don’t use a planner but I do use a calendar with large squares and this would be perfect. I also use them for envelopes.

    1. Love the idea of a planner, but I personally don’t keep one. Do love the stamps, though.

    1. love the colors you chose for your planner, Yana – so many cute stamps in this release!!

    1. I don’t really get into the planner thing, but I do love to embellish everything!

    1. I, too, was most excited to see the arts and crafts planner stamps. I love that pad of weekly planner sheets, also. I definitely have to get one of those. It would sit right on my desk where I could see it all the time, instead of having to get out my planner to look for design assignments.

    1. I don’t actually have a handmade planner. But I should start writing down my goals, then they are more likely to get done.

    1. Love the planner, and the colors are great together! I used to make lists and cross them off when they were done, it gave me such a feeling of accomplishment. I need to start doing that again! A planner would help. Thanks for sharing.
