Clear and Simple Stamps |Save the Date: 2017 Polaroid Frames Calendar DownloadSave the Date and welcome to a fun new series you’ll find on the blog periodically, as we share our love for cute calendars. If you are anything like we are, you’ll notice that you end up with more than one calendar style that you like and find places around the house, office, and even car to stash yet another calendar that you had to have. Even though we all have digital calendars on our smart phones, there is something way better about holding pretty paper in hand to remind us of the days of the week, an upcoming appointment, special occasions, or even start our countdown to the holidays!

Clear and Simple Stamps | Stationery Trends: Gems

Clear and Simple Stamps | Stationery Trends: Gems

Stationery is one of our first loves! We’re bringing a new series to the blog that will share creative ways to incorporate popular styles into DIY stationery. What better trend to kick things off than the new Gemstone Collection?!

Gems are all the rage, and can truly never go out of style.  When is the last time you said “no, thanks” and opted out of receiving diamonds because they weren’t on trend? Um, how about never! Gems are always in style – diamonds, rubies, emeralds…pretty much all bling is welcomed, especially when cutely crafted as stationery.

We were inspired by the new Gemstone Collection for our first take on creating fun Stationery Trends. Since gems generally appear in the form of jewelry, we grabbed a few pieces of costume jewelry and got right to work. Read more

Clear and Simple Stamps: Lovely Reminders

Clear and Simple Stamps: Lovely Reminders

We are making a confession. Right here, right now for all the world to see – we are obsessed with planners! It’s something about the petite size that fits right in your bag…or the many fabulous colors and patterns that adorn the covers.  But truthfully, we LOVE to make our own planners with our File It Series that we can customize and can easily change styles without having to commit to just one design.

One way to customize your planner is to add a focal point to the cover.  We turned a basic kraft binder into a pretty piece of art for our office by adding the Heart Doily Die to the cover – 2nd confession, this die is awesome and we use it quite a bit. Add a little gold foiling with our Simple Adhesive and it’s like magic!

Clear and Simple Stamps: How-to Gold Foil

Another way to make your planners all your own, is to create your own custom sticky notes.  Since we are quickly approaching Valentine’s Day, we created Lovely Reminders – a printable PDF for romantic sticky notes that are a great way to be playful and flirty with very little effort.

Clear and Simple Stamps: Lovely Reminders

These Lovely Reminders make us smile, which is exactly what they are meant to do, right?! And not only are they mega cute, they are incredibly easy to use. Just download them and print them out.

Clear and Simple Stamps: Printable Sticky Notes

You can store them on the printed sheet or keep them safely tucked away inside your planner for use at any moment. You can even use them to gift sweet Valentine’s Day treats…

With St Patrick’s Day less than a week away, we remixed {this} sweet treat with a pinch o’ green for the upcoming holiday.

The mint chocolate candies were a “lucky” find with the fun trio of green shades. We paired this colorful snack with a few Clear and Simple Stamps goodies to create sweet, holiday-inspired favors.

Taking a cue from the color coordinated candies, we alternated colors to fill the 1″ Clear Candy Treat Bags and added a custom stamped topper with gold foil accents. Here’s a photo tutorial to walk you through “how-to” add gold foil to your toppers:

This is a simple and sweet project that is great for gifting at the office or to classmates on St. Patrick’s Day. Without naming any names, let’s just say these tasty little treat bags “magically disappeared” one by one as the day went on!
