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!
When Life Gives you Lemons….
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’m back! With full force might I add. I am motivated and inspired! July and August are CRAZY for me but I have so much great new content in store for you guys and I can wait to share it all! So today I am sharing my September calendar spread! Got some new tapes from Hobby Lobby and was also trying to use some old tapes that I have had for a while and felt 0% inspiration from. Here it goes!
Every time I think of “cherry blossom” I think about how every girl in the 90’s used this scent for lotions, sprays, body glitter, EVERYTHING. We adding this striped tape gave it a little upgrade in my opinion.
Everyone know what roses mean to me and if you purchase planner stickers on a semi-regular or regular basis, you probably have a plethora of them. So try and mix it up. This is roses and polka dots part one. I tried to make my own spaces instead of confining myself to the pre-determined areas of the calendar. Turned out pretty well!

Sometimes I have to remind my self that even though I use one planner for everything, my personal life and my work are two separate parts of my day. That’s where this inspiration came from. I also found some Pinterest inspiration of basically overloading the middle with stickers and leaving the rest pretty bare. Than I got bored which sometime is my calendar downfall. I end up adding to much or adding something I don’t like, but this time I definitely think it paid off. All of that cheetah print you see? yeah. Hand Drawn. By me. Took forever, but I didn’t do it all at once. Just doodled when I had time. Didn’t finish it until today actually. This is definitely my favorite spread for this month for sure.
Pretty simple, too many flower stickers. I know. But I really need to use them. I LOVE the black tape though.
So my biggest problem that I have come across is that I have a bunch of sticker books with a scarce number of stickers left and me being the hoarder that I am, I don’t want to waste stickers so I keep sticker books that I haven’t really touched. So, recently I did somewhat of an inventory of what I have. Turns out, I had a lot of baby blue! So baby blue and striped is what I came up with. Played with making my own spaces again with this one.
Ew. I hate this one so much but like I said I have some stuff I need to use before I invest in more. One of those things is this God awful star tape. It came in a set so whatever, but I think I did what I could with it. But you can definitely tell that I wasn’t feeling very inspired by it.
So there you have it kids! If you have any questions about this months spreads or if you if you have a favorite or just want to say hi please comment below! Love you all bunches!
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!

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!
