How to Make a Comic Book Inspired Planner Layout

Hello Sweet Fans! Its Cheryl here to share how I created a Comic Book inspired Planner Layout! I really love the sequence of action words in Sweet Stamp Shop’s “For the Love of Stamps” stamp set. So much so that it inspired me to do this Comic style layout which is super easy and fun to do. Hope you get inspired too!

Draw 2×2 Boxes Using Pencil

First I drew boxes out in pencil. The boxes are roughly 2”x2”, I made the second box on the top row slightly larger because the little girl and cat on the laptop image are slightly larger than the rest.

Cover Pencil Lines Using Black Pen

Next, I used a black pen to draw in the boxes. Allow some time for the black ink to dry before erasing the pencil lines (trust me! I learned the hard way!). But if you do experience some smudging, a white gel pen can always help hide the smudges!

Add “For the Love” & “Banners and More” Stamp Sets to Sticker Paper

Next, I stamped out the images from Sweet Stamp’s “For the Love of Stamps” Stamp set onto sticker paper along with some banners from Sweet Stamp’s “Banners and More” Stamp set for the days of the week. Then I fussy cut out all of the images.

Layout Stamped Images onto Planner Page

Then I laid out all of the stamped images onto the planner page to avoid pre-coloring any images that I won’t use.

Color Banners with Copic Markers

Next, I colored in the banners with Copic markers and wrote in the days of the week.

Add Checkboxes Using “Two Plan with Words” Stamp Set

I then used distress ink to color in the first box and stamped out the words “Sweet Release Day” to mimic the title of a comic. I also added some checkboxes from Sweet Stamp’s “Two Plan with Words” stamp set and added some highlights using alphas and icons. Lastly, I added some washi tape for some extra accents!
