"Hey there, SCT friends! I'm Taylor from Taylored Expressions and I'm excited to be sharing with you some of our latest Clearly Planned products on a layout I designed for the month of December. This month, we released all new clear, photo-polymer stamps and coordinating dies designed for planners and I was so excited to get inky with them myself! Plus, for fans of Scrapbook & Cards Today, we’ve designed a fun, FREE Holiday Gift Planner download just for YOU!



For my layout, I chose to use our new Christmas Critters stamp set with the coordinating dies to adorn my December layout. I like to color my images with Copic markers, however, these markers will bleed through most planner pages, so I first stamped the images onto cardstock, colored them, and die-cut with the coordinating dies to place in my planner layout.


The Christmas Critters set includes several cute, cuddly critters that are helpful for planning those things we do during the holidays like trimming the tree, baking, taking photos, making lists, and more. I also used our new Mark Your Calendar Holidays to mark December holidays and New Year’s Eve. I can’t wait to start filling in all our Christmas activities like parties, shopping days, and family photos from our vacation!


I was able to download and print the exclusive Holiday Gift Planner and insert it into my December Calendar layout by punching the side with the punch that coordinates with my planner (The Happy Planner.) The gift planner is a great way to record gift ideas and keep yourself on track with purchasing, making, and budgeting for all the gifts under the tree!
