Decorative Planner Stamping - Harry Potter

Decorative Planner Stamping - Harry Potter


Decorated Planner Pages - Jo Whight - Harry Potter

This week my planner spread has a Harry Potter theme inspired by Harry's Birthday and the release of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child.  I am not however, going to get my copy at midnight...way to old for that sort of malarkey.


I am actually quietly pleased with this weeks spread....last week I was trying something different. This week I have amalgamated last weeks style with my comfort style.  I have also tried to take more photos this week so that you can see how the spread developed.  

In the beginning was the is always about Washi lol.  I had seen this tape about but could not find any to buy until I discovered the Washi Fairy Godmother.  I ordered a few samples and was really excited when this one arrived.  However, I looked at it and couldn't see how I could work it in until I was looking at last weeks spread.  It became obvious...the whole spread had to be sepia.


The base of the spread was randomly sponged with vintage photo Distress ink.  I masked each box in turn to add the distress stamping around the edge.  The stamps I used were from Sheena Douglas and also work well in art journaling, although any grunge type stamps would work just as well.  I needed my boxes relatively clear as I use my planner.  It need functional stamping and room for me to write a small essay.


The piece came alive as the Washi was added to the bottom of the page, it was already looking good.


Then it was time for the artwork, the colouring and the fussy cutting


 The Main 'Harry' image was a digi stamp from Mo's digital pencil. The nice thing about this image is that not only is available in boy or girl, it is also available as children of colour. She also has a fabulous image called 'The Wiz' which I am itching to do something with.  'Harry' has been coloured with alcohol markers on sticker paper.  Hedwig was a random owl image from an online colouring page that has been resized and coloured with a couple of grey alcohol markers to preserve his white appearance.

The webs and the spiders are from a UK company called Card-io.  They do some fabulous small nature images.  You may have seen their snails on earlier layouts.


 Functional planner stamps this week are mostly from Studio L2E (as are the books),  I always come back to their stamps they are just so versatile.  My brush work related stamps and the dates are custom stamps from Tiny Stamps Big Plans.  Rowena runs a fabulous monthly stamp club that is well worth joining.  I have been looking for proper date stamps for a while.  There are not many out there...most are 0 - 9.  I am a bit lazy and just wanted the actual dates.  They will be used on a weekly basis because I always struggle with the US numbering.  August found me hunting for the first weeks pages as mine started on the 8th....sad really.

I have lots more to add to this spread I think it will be very busy by the end of the week.  I have just noticed my hydration stamp is missing and I would like to do some llama lettering under the symbol on the right hand page.

hope you all have a wonderful week

  1. I love your blog! I am so happy I found you! I want to incorporate stamping in my pages too. What about the paper? Do you only stamp on one side and use another page for the other side, so it doesn't bleed through. Thanks for sharing your art!!!

    1. I am so sorry I have only just seen this comment. To answer your question I like to use a really thick paper...currently 160gsm. I stamp on both sides but colouring with alcohol markers goes on to sticker paper first. Colouring with pencils direct to planner. Inky techniques are also direct to planner

  2. I got my copy of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child book today.
    I ordered it on Amazon and they delivered it in just 2 days!
