Whats up, Buttercups! I am so happy to be back blogging and posting all of my favorite things. I experienced so many drastic life changes recently, but I am so blessed to blog, and work on artwork, and spend more time with my two year old. Planner layouts are a fun way for me to relax and de-stress. I’s almost like meditation for me.
So continuing on with cutting down on some older stickers, I’ve been trying to create layouts with some stickers that I wouldn’t typically use, or do not feel like I have enough of a vision of how I could utilize them into an organized and productive layout in conjunction with other stickers. I noted that I tend to steer away from yellow. Not sure why because, honestly, I think yellow is a B-E-A-Utiful color. But I did notice that I have very few yellow stickers in comparison to other colors. Here is what I came up with.

Week 1 Planner Layout
Week 2 Planner Layout
Which came first The tape or the stickers?
So, I get this question quite a lot. Are you supposed to start with stickers first or tape first when starting a new planner loyout. Honestly, it doesn’t matter. I typically start with stickers just because I have more of them and I’m currently tying to cut down on some older ones by using them first and working around those opposed to trying to fit them in somewhere else.
I would say to start with what inspires you. Currently, I am inspired by desire for supply reduction. I want less stickers in my sticker box. I I have been working around the stickers. But when I purchase new tapes (which I definitely did yesterday and you’ll see them coming up soon in the march spread!) my gears definitely change to tape first. Because who doesn’t like using their new stuff? Not me. I use newer stuff than my older supplied. Hence,why I am in my current situation of purging via using older stickers first.

Alright homies. Hope you enjoyed this month’s spread! I will add a link in just a little with all of my products per usual on Likeittoknow.it.
It’s the most wonderful time of the year. Think about your pumpkin spices (which I hate), sweaters, boots, and scarves, but don’t forget all the fun stickers they have for fall as well! I recommend getting to Hobby Lobby or Michaels and pick out some cute fall tapes or sticker books to help get you in the spirit. Here are my October spreads!

Drawing Outside the Lines
Thanks for taking a look at my calendar spreads. I know none of these have a huge over bearing fall theme, but don’t worry. Halloween actually falls in the first week of November so I can’t wait to show it to you! Let me know if these inspired you and share your ideas!
I had such good feedback regarding my calendar spreads. Not only did I inspire people, but it made me feel incredible that people found them to be cute. So, in an attempt to keep the good vibes, I’m going to keep posting them every month!
So as you can see, I’m trying to work on color coating the design portion with the functional part. That way everything matches. I got a HUGE book of flower sticker so I thought this would be a fun way to use them for the monthly spread.
I can’t lie, this is one of the best spreads I have ever done. But, don’t get discouraged if a spread doesn’t turn out so great because the more you practice with different layouts and different supplies, the better they’ll get!
As I said before, every spread cannot be perfect. But, the great thing is that there are tons and tons of products out there. If I had really wanted to I could have gone out to buy some stuff to spruce up this page. However, I didn’t have the time or motivation for this spread.
When I first started this spread, all I did were the middle vertical flowers. Honestly, I should have left it that way because it was adorable. So, just try to remember that less is more sometimes!
Rose Gold is so popular right now, so I tried out this spread! Turned out pretty good!
Here is a list of the products used for this months’ spreads:
Erin Condren Life Planner (Vertical Spread)
The Happy Planner Sticker Book (Fun Florals)
Erin Condren Designer Sticker Book (Classic Collection/Edition 4)
The Happy Planner Sticker Book (Simply Lovely)
Agutape AGU Foil Gold Skinny Washi Tape (purchased on Amazon)
The Happy Planner Sticker Book (Watercolor)
Hope you enjoyed! Comment or share your ideas below!
Alright, so recently I started doing a little more “designing” in my calendar to keep it fun and fresh and functional. I was tired of having notebooks with lists, a calendar with appointments, and sticky notes everywhere. So I purchased an Erin Condren calendar and over time I have collected a butt load of stickers. It makes my planner not only cute and functional, but it always keeps things interesting. It is also a HUGE stress reliever to design a planner page! I usually dedicate at lease one hour of time for myself on Sundays to design my calendar/planner pages. I try to do it when the weekend is winding down and I’m getting ready to start another work week. I figured, since I love it so much and I always look for other designs, why not share my own in hopes that it inspires some designs of your own! I will list several of the products I use below the pictures of my June calendar/planner pages below if you would like to purchase any of the same products!
So here are some of the items that I used in these spreads of you are interested:
