Repeat Impressions Inspiration Palette Challenge

Today Wendy, owner of Repeat Impressions is challenging us with this Inspiration Palette.
I used the colors as my inspiration.  Here is my card.
The images are Leaf Cluster Outline and Flower Cluster Solid with the Lady Slipper that was embossed in white.  The background was sponged on using a variety of Tim Holtz inks.  The sentiment, Vertical Thinking of You was embossed on vellum.


For me these challenges are always fun and look forward to seeing what you will do with the challenge.  You don't have to use Repeat Impression stamps but if you do, your name will be entered twice (2x) for a random drawing for a really nice gift certificate from Repeat Impressions.  Check out Wendy's blog, The House That Stamps Built for the complete guidelines and link your project there.

Thanks for looking at my card.

REPEAT IMPRESSIONS Project of the Week

Hello friends!  Today Wendy, owner of Repeat Impressions asked me to post a Project of the Week.  I was just getting ready to do my monthly planner entries for the week and thought I'd show you how I organize and use Repeat Impressions stamps for mine.

After trying out SEVERAL planners, one with 2 page monthly entries seems to work best for me.  Here are the supplies

Repeat Impressions tiny stamps
tape runner
washi tape
pen
small ink spot
any small dies that would fit
small calendar stickers

I went thru all my Repeat Impressions stamps and picked out all the small ones that would fit in the days of the week boxes.  Then I stamped them on a guide and put them all in a plastic sleeve.  This I keep in a container marked "Daily Planner Stamps & Dies" with the tape runner, washi, small ink spot and any other small things I might use.

And this is how I store them
I keep all these supplies in this small plastic container so that once a week (usually on a Sunday afternoon) it is easy to pull this out and work out the week's schedule.  This only takes about 15-20 minutes.

Here is what the beginning calendar looks like.  As the month goes on - the schedule changes and gets more stickers, stamps and tape runner on it.


I think setting out a specific schedule to do this and keeping all the supplies in one container helps makes this go quickly.  If I have time I'll do a little coloring with pencils.  On the 28th do you see the rabbit in the hat?  -- that's my evening to cook dinner -- and believe me that's like pulling a rabbit out of the hat!!

Keeping a written schedule is quite easy if all the supplies are together and a small amount of time each week is set aside.  Using the stamps and coloring them helps me to remember what the week holds for me to do.

Thanks for looking at my project - hope you give it a try.
