I used the stencil to trace several shapes (the balloons, circles, squares, conversation bubbles, labels) with a black pen and add a little color with colored pencil. I often just sponge ink through stencils, but I’ve been on a kick lately to use stencils in this way in my planners. Pencils are nice because, especially, with planners because the color doesn’t show through thinner papers usually… like ink can if paper is lightweight.

I also added a teeny tiny bit of stamping to my pages with a couple planner friendly stamp sets from PS, Dinky Doodles 1 and Dinky Doodles 2.  These sets are great because the images are small and just packed with images that work on planner pages year round.

Alright! That’s it for now. I’ll be back later.

Thanks for stopping by. Happy hopping!

Technique Tuesday Release Day!

New-Release-Countdown-Release-Day

Hi, all!

Today’s the day! Technique Tuesday’s April release is live.

And I’m back today to share a planner spread I made with a couple of the new stamp sets.

This page was decorated (before ink) with both the Planner Beauty and Sassy Girl Thoughts stamp sets.

The planner set is all about… beauty…. and treating yourself. It’s perfect for planning those pampering days we all need (and those girls only days)!

This sentiment here is from the Sassy Girl Thoughts stamp set. I think it’s one of those sets that is perfect to use on cards and scrapbook pages, but it’s also got a place in a planner too. This phrase? Well, you know. Wink!

Alright! Be sure to hit the Technique Tuesday blog for links to all the projects the rest of the Design Team is sharing today. So. Many. Cool. Projects.

And be sure to swing by the Technique Tuesday website to see the whole release.

25 Days of Christmas Tags

Hi guys!

Super tickled to be contributing a couple tags to Tracey McNeeley’s 25 Days of Christmas Tags festivities today! What is 25 days of Christmas Tags, you ask? Simple. It’s a literally a 25-day event of tag inspiration. Every. Single. Day. For 25 days. Tags, tags and more handmade cards.

Today, Tracey’s highlighting tags made with products from Technique Tuesday.  You know me. I have a soft spot for TT. (Wink!)

Handmade Christmas Tags by Teri // terisplace.wordpress.com

The images on both of these tags came from a planner stamp set I designed for Technique Tuesday called Planner – Christmas Doodles. They are all hand drawn little doodles for Christmas that work in a planner, but also work pretty great to make tags and cards too.

I basically just stamped a bunch of washi strips and a bunch of flags, added a little color with markers and the fussy cut them out with my scissors. The extra white detailing was pulled off with the help of a white gel pen.

The words on my tags are from the Classic Christmas Sentiments stamp set, but TT has a bunch of Christmas themed stamps with phrases that would have worked well for these tags. The little toppers at the top of my two tags were cut with the Tag Toppers dies.

Alright! That’s all I have. Be back later, friends. Thanks, as always, for stopping by.
