I’ve decided to share a bit of my recent planning hobby with you today! For those of you that follow me on Instagram, some of this will be a repeat for you. For those who don’t follow me on Instagram, you really should! (pinkbowstwinkletoes)
I discovered the Erin Condren LifePlanner earlier this summer. After seeing it, I knew almost instantly that I needed one too! So the planning adventure began!
I knew when I ordered my planner that I was going to jump right on the planner sticker band wagon! I actually received my first two sticker orders several days before my planner arrived! As I mentioned in my last post, I tend to jump into new things with both feet! 🙂
This was my first planned out week. I’d only received a few sticker sheets when I designed this spread, so it’s a little bare. Looking past all the white space, I think it’s pretty cute for my first week!
I haven’t really used a planner since High School, so this is a fun way for me to get organized again!
I used quite a few of the college assignment flags on the latter portion of this week.
I decided at this point that I was going to add a corresponding quote in the left side bar each week. I usually go on Pinterest on Sunday nights and see what kind of short and sweet quotes I can find!
I picked out a fun Lilly Pulitzer quote that I thought fit quite nicely with the color scheme!
Vintage Gypsy Road (one of the sticker shops I love) sells a fun cake decorating sticker set that allows you to build any size cake you’d like! I thought that was perfect for Robert and Hayley’s wedding day!
I got the majority of the stickers I used for this spread from Libbie & Co (another one of my favorite sticker shops).
She sold a mystery box in early August that came with tons of adorable flamingo stickers! You know how much I love mystery/subscription boxes, so I couldn’t resist! I’m hoping she offers another one soon!
Sorority recruitment ended this week and Kappa’s bid day theme was Picnic, so I was trying to portray that a little in my spread. It didn’t turn out overly picnic-y but that’s okay! The red gingham box is all the picnic I really need!
Now that I’ve shown you all of my designs, I’m going to explain a little about the supplies I use and how I go about designing the spread for each week!
I like to store my stickers alphabetically by shop. When the pockets of the accordion folder filled up, I started sticking the file folders in the accordion pockets to created more divided spaces.
I’ve bought washi at all of the craft stores and Target! Target sometimes has it in their Dollar Spot, which is a fantastic deal if you find some you like!
Michael’s is the best place to buy the basics. They sell thin, solid washi in large packs that you can oftentimes use a coupon on! What a deal!
- Scalloped boxes are from Libbie & Co
- Pink bows are from HelloAshleyann
- Black labs are from Vintage Gypsy Road
- Lunch date stickers are from Two Lil Bees
If I still have some blank spaces at the end of the week, I’ll go ahead and add in more decorative stickers!
Planning can be quite time consuming, but I find it very rewarding! It’s such a fun way for me to stay organized and make sure I don’t miss any important events or assignments!
Check out my Instagram on Wednesday and Sunday for more pictures of this spread!
