Planner Basics: Basic Tools for Stamping

Happy Hump Day! I’m here with another Planner Basics post where I discuss basic tools for you planner nerds out there ūüôā

Planner Basics 2

There has been an explosion of interest in using stamps and planners together and I think it’s awesome. ¬†If you are someone new to stamping, you might find yourself overwhelmed with the choices of inks and tools to use. ¬†My advice? Keep it simple:

  1. An acrylic block is a must-have if you plan on using “clear” stamps. The one shown was only $1 dollar at my local craft store. Score!
  2. Memento Dew Drop Inks are perfect for the busy planner.  The compact size and the dew drop shape of these pads allow you get just the right amount of ink onto your stamp.  These inks dry fast and will not smudge.
  3. Use a pencil case to keep all of your tools together.
  4. Love those stamps? Mine are from¬†the Sweet Stamp ShopPlan It” series. I’m featuring the following sets today:
