Planner Christmas Decorations 2018
Here’s a pretty layout I did in my Erin Condren LifePlanner Vertical weekly layout for December 2018. This was done without any washi tape or stickers. How? The answer is – scrapbook paper!
So simple and fun!
Decorating My Planner with Scrapbook Paper
For this layout, I tried to mirror what I usually do with washi tape and stickers but with only paper. Luckily, there were many great pages in the set of scrapbook paper I picked up at Michael’s. And I absolutely loved the color scheme.
The mermaids and unicorns were my main focal point for the week, and I used colors from this throughout the rest of the layout.
I was even able to make my own banner “stickers” using the scrapbook paper.
They key to getting straight lines was a 12-inch paper trimmer. As a craft lover, it was sort of fun to use. Haha.
This “Ok, But First Presents” cut out was a playful addition. It didn’t quite fit in the two weekend boxes, but those types of minor things don’t bother me.
The only two things I didn’t love about this style of planning was:
- The glue was a little messy. I may try a glue runner instead.
- The paper is a bit thick. It takes up more space and makes writing a little less even on the opposite sides.
But overall, it was great to have yet another way to decorate my planner. There are so many cool styles of scrapbook paper out there, which means even more ways to decorate and organize your planner!
