Pretty Cute Stamps September New Release Blog Hop!

Thanks so much for joining us for the September 2015 New Release Blog Hop, where we are all sharing projects featuring the new stamps this month that are now available in the Pretty Cute Stamps Store!!

If you came from the Pretty Cute Stamps blog, you are in the right place. If you just stumbled across this post and would like to start from the beginning, please visit the Pretty Cute Stamps Blog

For my project for the hop, I'm featuring the awesome School Planner stamp set, which I used in creating a September calendar layout on my family calendar.

School Planner
I stamped some of the images with Colorbox Pigment Inks and some in black and I coloured them with coloured pencils as well as Distress and Tombow Markers. I found that as long as I didn't saturate the paper with the marker and coloured lightly it didn't bleed through to the other side. 

I used the School Planner stamp set on each of these dates- 1, 3, 4, 7, 9, 10, 11, 14-19, 21-25, 29 and 30th. 

I used a combination of ballpoint pens in coloured inks and the small nibs on the markers to write on the calendar. 

I found the Everyday Planner set perfect to use on my calendar as well! I used it on these dates - 1, 6, 8, 10, 11, 13, 14, 20, 25, 26, 27, 29 and 30th. 

I totally adore all the little mini icons that coordinate with the words! So cute!

I added the Bushels Of Fun Apple basket to the top of my calendar and lightly water coloured it with Distress Markers. Because it was the first page it was a heavier cardstock and it didn't soak through. I found the quote online and wrote it out with a black Smash Book pen.

Here's a list of the other Pretty Cute Stamps I used on my calendar:
3rd- Be Mine
13th- Botday

I really had a lot of fun decorating this month's calendar for our family! I love this School Planner set and have lots more in mind that I'll be using this set for! I hope this calendar also inspires you to use your stamps in creative ways! There are so many little details in the awesome stamps from Pretty Cute Stamps - they are perfect for that!
