Here’s a partially completed monthly layout. As you guys know, I like to mark the major events, track workouts, etc. here. The only thing I haven’t layered in (still) are blog posts. But the former are the key things to help me stay organized, prevent double-bookings, and track travel.

Planner Supplies Used:

  • Sneakers, Work Sticker, Quarter Box, Coffee Mug: Planner Chick
  • Quarter box with circles on edges: Oh Hey Sticker Co
  • Page flags: Made by Elissa
  • Orange quarter box with two circles on each end: Planning Made Easy
  • Quote Sticker (top left): Instagram-photo sticker printed via Erin Condren

Since I haven’t been using the bottom section of the planner much, I opted to cover this week with a wide washi tape picked up at a NYC book store. The washi served as my focal point, so I used the color scheme for that through the weekly spread.

Planner Supplies Used:

  • Floral wide washi tape purchased at a cute book store in NYC called Kinokuniya, just across from Bryant Park
  • Heart checklists, flight sticker: Soda Pop Studio
  • Reminder: Libbie & Co
  • Britney: Oh Hey Sticker Co
  • Pink full box: Caress Press
  • Pink page flag, weekend banner, Plan: It’s Planning Time
  • Silverware: Made by Elissa
  • Week rectangles (lower left), half boxes, quarter boxes, work, to clean: Planner Chick
  • Oh Happy Day: Sweet Kawaii Designs
  • Retro box: Planner Penny

Weekly Layout: August 8-14

I’ve noticed that the kits can be somewhat stressful to use at times. I feel obligated to use all of the stickers in one or two spreads. What would you do with one or two remnant stickers? Especially when those stickers are quite patterned. I guess they’d go okay with a layout that was all solid colors. But since most of my washi has patterns in it, this can be a challenge. So, while I’ll continue to get packages, I find the solid-colored stickers in the shapes I use the most are a bit more flexible and therefore useful.

What do you think? Do you prefer solid or patterned stickers?

Planner Supplies Used:

  • Tropical flowers kit: Obsessed with Cute
  • Half box: Planner Chick
  • Weekend banner: Nicole Hutch Designs
  • Retro box: Planner Penny
  • Reminder Sticker: Libbie & Co
  • Heart checklists: Soda Pop Studio
  • Mini banner: Lillie Henry

Weekly Layout: August 15-21

This was a fun color scheme. I don’t use orange much. I liked how using one washi on the bottom and a different one on top looked together.

Planner Supplies Used:

  • To-Do list stickers long top, circles and exclamations: It’s Planning Time
  • Weekend banner: Scribble Prints Co
  • Orange page flags: Made by Elissa
  • Quarter box: Planner Chick
  • Full boxes: Sticker Bloom
  • Shop: Planning Made Perfect

Weekly Layout: August 22-28

This week was filled with more stickers than normal. Partially because I had a single sheet set to use. Partially because this was the week I went with my sister and her friend Celeste for a classy bachelorette weekend in Asheville, NC. I got really good use out a sheet of coffee/tea stickers when I tracked all the tea outings for the weekend. That was the one thing she wanted to do most: drink tea at Dobra Tea. It’s one of my favorite places to go, so it was fun to see how many times we could visit!

Planner Supplies Used:

  • Sprinkle sticker kit, day off: Planner Chick
  • Flight: Soda Pop Studio
  • Full box with bow: Oh So Pretty Planner
  • Tea mugs: Nicole Hutch Designs
