Hello! Happy Fourth of July! DIY projects that are quick and simple are the best, aren’t they? Today’s tutorial on DIY straw flags are just that and adds a cute little touch to your party drinks.Continue reading
Hey everyone! Ashleigh here! As you all know, I love stamping in my planner. Decorating my planner helps me stick to schedule and get more things done. However, when something comes up for a future date and I need to write it down in my planner, I write it on a sticky note first. That way, if dates or times get changed, I can easily move it around. It also allows me to decorate for that week without having to work around events that were written down.
I’ve been doing this for some time and wanted to share with you – stamped sticky notes! Whoever loves stationery (if you’re here, I know you do) then you’ll love this!
All you need is sticky note pads, stamps, pens, and some ink. I grabbed all of these from a dollar store and I’m in love with the kraft paper one! The smaller ones came in a pack and are for my planner. I use the kraft type for notes and to-do lists.
Pretty much any stamp set can be leveraged! In this post I’m using the Tabs set to decorate. Having a cute picture on each sticky note adds some cheerfulness to those not so enjoyable tasks. It’s fun to give stamped pads to stationery lovers. Another one of my favorite things is leaving little love notes in random places!
How do you use your sticky notes?
So exciting to finally get Maple & Ink open! This has been a long time coming!

With the grand opening, I thought I’d introduce the sets and ink.
Let’s start with the stamps!
First up is Whippersnappers. This darling of a set will help keep that “mom brain” a little more in check. It also has, what I like to call, little memento stamps like “Quote of the Day” Because kids say the darnest things. Along with “First Tooth” (Don’t forget the cute tooth fairy stamp!) and “First Haircut” you’ll be able to mark milestones in your scrapbook or planner.
The Extra Curricular stamp set is another to help you keep those activities in order. With over 60 stamps, it’s sure to have what you’re looking for.
UGG is seriously the cutest thing ever! This stamp set is perfect for decorating your planner, creating cards, and other craft projects.
Maintaining health is so important! With the Wellness set you’ll be able to track doctor appointments, pain levels, heart rate, and more!
Last but not least, Tabs! This set helps keep track of special events and to-dos. Equipped with checklists and banners, you won’t forget a thing!
There are lots of stamp sets in the making and I’m so excited to share them with you shortly!
On to the ink!
VersaFine in Onyx Black has clearly been the favorite among stampers for its crisp stamping abilities. Along with that, there’s VersaFine in Vintage Sepia and Smokey Gray in the full size ink pads. If you haven’t tried the other colors yet, you need to!
Those of you who love rich color (who doesn’t!) will enjoy the VersaMagic Dew Drops. They have a chalk like finish that many love for planner stamping and other crafts.
