I am addicted to all things relating to planners (as if we didn’t already know this…). Washi tape, stickers off of every store on Etsy, stationary, journals…I want it ALL. When I saw these stamps made specifically for certified planner addicts such as myself, I knew these had to become the latest addition to my collection. Let me introduce you to my little collection of planner stamps by Studio L2e.
In my mind (or at least to justify the purchase to my husband), these stamps are actually money savers. I could buy 365 “hydrate” stickers and a bunch of check lists, or I could buy one stamp set and have enough to fill as many planners or journals as I wanted. All of these stamps come in any color I can find ink for. It just made sense. Don’t get me wrong, I’m still going after planner stickers too, but these are just too perfect to pass up.
With the exception of only a few products, all of the Studio L2e stamps are clear, which means when you use an acrylic block, you can see exactly where you’re placing the stamp. This allows for perfection when it comes to stamp layering.
If the stamps start to lose their ability to stick to the block, it could be time to give them a little wash. I tend to blot them off with a paper towel or damp cloth after each use, and this keeps them in fine condition.
Plan It Stamps
While “Plan It” is the name for an entire line of Studio L2e stamps now, I think this was the set that started it all. As you can see, there are some pretty basic planner functions on here: to do lists and check boxes (and check stars and hearts..), doctor/dentist/meds, meal planning, the hydrate stamp, and other important labels. This basic set allows me to stamp everything from payday and appointments, to bill reminders and a fun photo for movie night.
The checklist measures 1 1/4″x 2,” the words are 1/4″ tall, and the little icons are 3/8″ tall. The Plan It set costs $15. These are sized well, as they can find a place to fit in many different kinds of planners.
I love this little “Iconic” set. I can add fun detailed stamps to pretty much anything: meds, laundry, groceries, TV shows, cleaning, a computer for blogging and a video camera for filming..even my coffee cup and wine glass have their own little icon! I can also put tiny reminders for credit card payments and what day to put out the trash.
Incase the “hydrate” stamp from the Plan It collection wasn’t right for you, there is a much more compact version in this water bottle stamp, which you can see I’ve used quite a bit. It easily fits into little spaces in my Filofax, making it more pleasing to the eye. Aesthetics might be something that doesn’t really matter to anyone except the user of the planner, but it’s still nice. All of the Iconic set is about .25″ tall, with the exception of the water bottle which is .75″ tall and the set is $8. Tiny icons of planner perfection.
The Happy Notes set is a great set to have in conjunction with the others. You can treat these like stampable sticky notes. Studio L2e’s attention to detail is what really makes me enjoy this company. Notice that there is a larger and smaller square that has a label on top. Each square has it’s own set of “washi tapes” that fit right in that box, adding a little extra fun and color to your note. The word stamps included also fit perfectly in those boxes.
Now take a look at the incomplete rectangles (one is shaded in blue due to use). All of the little stamps from the Iconic collection fit perfectly in that incomplete corner. Use the cake with that box to label birthdays, or the credit card to have a stand out label of what bill is due. The sets work brilliantly together. I honestly only bought this set so I could use it with the Iconic set, because that’s just how I roll.
The small boxes are 7/8″ square and the larger boxes are 1 1/8″ sqaure, for size reference. Happy Notes set costs $15.
Seasonal Plans (Fall/Winter)
I am a big fan of all things seasonal. Bring on the pumpkin spice and the peppermint mocha! When I saw these seasonal goodies I knew they were going in my order too, even if I didn’t have to do any seasonal planning for that particular season. I like having the menu, card, and gift planning stamps, but what really drew me toward this set is the themed to do list boxes. Spider webs, pumpkins, snowflakes, Christmas trees, mittens, champagne glasses, and bows will help make any holiday checklist fun and festive. They were also smart enough to give us options of a nice list format as well as individual stamps incase the spacing in the column stamps wasn’t what was needed. They really think things trough. The columns are 1.25″ tall and the set is $11.50.
Since I wasn’t exactly sure how I wanted to use my Studio L2e stamps, I found this little ink set at Michaels for cheap (after sale it might have been $5) to help me begin my journey into planner stamps. I love using different colors to keep my planners looking interesting. While I’m guessing the life of these inexpensive inks won’t be terribly long, for now they get the job done. I also purchased an acrylic block about the size of the palm of my hand to use with the stamps. I find that size to be more than sufficient for my current planner stamp collection.
Studio L2e stamps have been working great in my Filofax, but they’re also sized perfectly for the Erin Condren Life Planners (and many others) as well.
Studio L2e is always releasing new and exciting sets. I’ve most recently seen a new set of iconic activities, planning stamps for baby, and the one I’m going to add to my collection, BeYOUtiful plans. That new set has makeup brushes, lipstick, and all sorts of other girly things. 100% perfect for my planner. I can’t wait to see what Studio L2e comes up with in the future. Check out their store and start dreaming of what your planner could become.
