A Week in My Erin Condren April 25 - May 1 Overview | The Rebel Planner

It’s been a while, hasn’t it? My weekly spreads haven’t been so exciting and to be honest, my drive to do pretty spreads wavered a bit the past few weeks. I still planned each week, but I felt like I wasn’t truly enjoying it. But with a new month brings a new color, and with a new color means some interesting spreads!

A Week in My EC Horizontal logo

It’s been quite a while since I’ve shared the inside of my Erin Condren Life Planner. My planner was a bit boring when I wasn’t in school so there wasn’t much to show off. Now that school has started again and my planner is busy again, that means more looks inside of my Erin Condren.

Today I’m sharing with you my latest Planner Kate haul. After my last haul, I realized that I adore the quality of Planner Kate’s stickers and how much I get on a sheet. I thought I’d order some additional stickers as well as some monthly stickers. Check out the haul below!

Happy New Year! 2015 was good to me, but I have this really good vibe about 2016.

I spent New Year’s Eve at my boyfriend’s house hanging out with him and his family. It was really lovely, but it meant that I was away from my planner for three days, as to why it’s so sparse. But I love this layout, mainly for the lettering I did on New Year’s Day. Check out this week in my Erin Condren Life Planner Horizontal!

Erin Condren Life Planner Horizontal Full Spread.

I hope you all had a lovely Christmas and holiday season. I spent my Christmas with my family and it was great to have my whole family together. I didn’t have enough time (or money) to buy a Christmas spread kit, so I used a bunch of different stickers to create a Christmas-themed spread. I’m pretty happy with how it turned out!

I also picked up some shifts at the store I worked at over the summer. I forgot how hectic it was working there! But all of my co-workers from the summer were worried that I was gone for so long and were glad to see me back. I was so happy to see them too!

I used a Christmas sticker sampler from Sweet Kawaii Design to add some Christmas flair. The sticker sheet came exclusive in a Black Friday order (you can check that out here!) and I used most of the sheet in this spread. The hanging Christmas lights are my favorites. I hope that she makes more of those for other holidays. Garland for Valentine’s Day would be adorable!

The Santa, Christmas tree and present stickers are from those $1 sticker books from Michael’s. I usually don’t like big decorative stickers, but for Christmas I’ll make an exception.

KPL Plans Haul

December 21, 2015

KPL Plans Haul

Another Black Friday haul! This time from KPL Plans. I saw a YouTuber using this shop and I wanted to try them out. This shop had 40% off so of course I had to buy some things. Check out my KPL Plans haul below!

The package came in a bubble mailer. The stickers came inside a plastic packaging to protect them from water and damage. I wish that the stickers came in a sturdy cardboard mailer, but it was purple! Can’t go wrong with purple.

KPL Plans offers both glossy and matte stickers. Matte stickers are less expensive and both glossy and matte have permanent adhesive and cannot be lifted after placement without ripping the paper or sticker.

Cancelled Stickers

These Canceled, Rescheduled, Postponed, Not Today and Planner fail stickers ($3.75) stickers will come in handy when I write something in my planner that just did not happen. The stickers will look nicer than crossing the plan out with pen. I love the colors!

Weekend Banners

I love how these Horizontal Weekend Banners ($3.75) look. I have kits that have four weekend banners in them, but sometimes there are months with five weeks in them. This will be nice for that extra week.

KPL Plans Sampler

The sampler is matte paper and has a bunch of different icons, checklists and other stickers. I love the happy mail truck!

KPL Plans is still a small shop, but I hope they expand the selection soon!

Sweet Kawaii Design Haul

December 16, 2015

Sweet Kawaii Design haul

Over Black Friday weekend, Sweet Kawaii Design had a sale that was too good to give up. I’ve been wanting to purchase from this shop for a while, so having 10% off made it happen! Check out my Sweet Kawaii Design haul down below!

The package came in a sturdy cardboard mailer sealed with a sticker. The stickers were inside of a cellophane wrapper that kept them safe from any bending or damage in the mail. The stickers are printed on permanent, glossy stickers which means they will be difficult to remove once placed down. Tesia, the shop owner, does not recommend peeling them up since they will alter the quality and color of the sticker. I have not tried it so I cannot vouch for it.

Itty Bitty Blog stickers

The first sheet I got is the Itty Bitty Kawaii Blog Stickers ($3.95). I put a penny next to them to show the scale of the Itty Bitty stickers. They are tiny but are perfect for people who want stickers in their spreads but need room to write as well. They don’t take up much room.

Itty Bitty Girl Suitcases stickers

I do a lot of traveling between family, school and friends, so these Itty Bitty Kawaii Girl Luggage Stickers ($3.95) are great for marking those times. I love how many I get and the different colors.

Time to Plan stickers

The last sheet I got is the Kawaii Planner Stickers ($3.95). These are the only full-sized stickers I bought. These will add some fun to marl the days that I plan next week! (As if that wasn’t fun enough.)

Black Friday sampler          sampler

Most shops come with a sampler and this was no different. The sampler has a bunch of different holiday and winter themed stickers. But I guess because I ordered on Black Friday I got a second holiday sampler. I’m not complaining! I wanted the holiday lights stickers but decided not to. I’m glad that they came in the sampler.

I’m very impressed with the sticker quality and how fast these stickers shipped out. I will definitely order again in the future.

A Week in My Erin Condren: Nov. 30 – Dec. 6

December 7, 2015

Erin Condren Life Planner Horizontal Spread

Check out last week in my Erin Condren Life Planner! More pictures are down below.

There are those weeks that didn’t necessarily feel busy, but you look back and realize that you accomplished a lot. This was one of those weeks. Looking back at my planner, there wasn’t a lot scheduled, but I got a ton of things done that I am really proud of.

I gave a presentation, I wrote three blog posts, I finished two papers, it was my mom’s birthday and I celebrated my anniversary with my boyfriend. It was a lot, but it didn’t feel that way. Probably because I planned it out so well. 😉

What I love most about this spread is that I got to try out some new stickers. I started a Christmas countdown with the Have a Parade stickers I hauled a while back. They are small and don’t take up much room. They also add some Christmas cheer to my functional spreads without being too distracting. I also used a couple of Planner Kate stickers that I got in a flash sale a few weeks back. They are so easy to write on and peel off of the page when I placed them a little crooked. That’s why I love removable stickers!

The weekend banner, checklists and dividers are from the monthly kits from Ladybugzdesignz. The cardboard boxesTV stickers and smaller, skinny flags are from abundanceoferica. The birthday stickers come in the Erin Condren Life Planner.

My First Planner Kate Haul

December 4, 2015

planner kate haul

I’ve always wanted to order from Planner Kate, so when I saw that she had a 40% off flash sale last week, I had to take advantage. Check out my first Planner Kate haul below!

All Planner Kate stickers are printed on matte, repositionable sticker paper. I love this because matte paper is easier to write on and if I want to move a sticker around, I can do so without ripping the paper or leaving behind adhesive.

The stickers are cut perfectly and I don’t see that any ink smeared in the printing process . What I am upset about is that the USPS bent my package a bit and as you can see below, some of the sheets are curling. Despite the curling, the stickers lay flat. I ordered on Nov. 22 and the package was shipped on Nov. 24. That was really fast! I got the order on Nov. 27, but since I shipped it to my school, I couldn’t pick up the stickers until after. Some shops take weeks to ship out stickers, but this shop shipped the stickers incredibly fast.

The color selection is really nice here. The colors work really well with the Erin Condren horizontal planner, which is what I use. Some colors don’t match the monthly colors exactly (pink), but they work perfectly for every other monthly color. I can see these working well with the vertical as well.

appointment labels

These appointment labels ($5) work well to mark off important meetings and appointments. Mark the time in the square on the left and write the appointment or meeting in the blank white box. These are super skinny and don’t take up much space.

laptop stickers

I want to use these laptop icons (sold out, similar) to mark when I have to work on my blog or when blog posts go up. I love how clean these look and how vibrant the colors are.

half boxes

Half boxes ($5) are great for marking off an important meeting, appointment, date or event. I like to use these when an issue of my school’s newspaper is out. I wish there were two of every color, though. There’s only one dark purple, orange, lime green and coral yet doubles of others.

single dot stickers

Planner Kate is known for their double dot stickers, but these single dots ($5) are just as nice. I like to use these to mark off when class is canceled, when I’m meeting with a group to work on a project or when I’m meeting with friends for lunch.

sampler

I really like the variety of this sampler that came free with my order. Usually shops give out samplers that have to deal with the season, and while those are nice, sometimes that season has passed and aren’t usable until next year. This one has functional stickers and decorative stickers in all sorts of shapes and colors. I cannot wait to use that sequin half box in my January spread.

Although Planner Kate stickers are expensive at $5 a sheet, I’m going to order again – but only when there is a sale. These stickers are of nice quality, shipped fast and work well with the colors of the horizontal.

Have you purchased any Planner Kate stickers? Which ones?

A Week in My Erin Condren: Nov. 23 – Nov. 29

December 3, 2015

nov 23 - nov 29

This past week marked the beginning of my short but relaxing Thanksgiving break, and boy did I need it. Since I only had to plan out two days for school purposes, I was allowed to have a little more fun with how I did my layout.

I usually don’t use checklists in my weekly spreads except in the Notes section, so using them throughout spread felt a little foreign to me. However, since those days I was doing errands and buying Christmas gifts, the checklists made sense.

Since I use my planner functionally, I don’t add decorative stickers to my weekly spread and instead use them in the monthly view to add a bit of fun. I really love the way the turkey and fall stickers look though. It adds a bit of color to my usually monotone spreads. Sometimes I wish I could be a decorative planner, but I need all the space to plan out my days!

I love the way that Cindy Guentert (Llamas Love Lettering) does lettering in her planner, so I thought I would try that out too. I love the way it came out! Monday was a really lazy and relaxing day for me since that weekend was crazy with work and school events. I want to buy markers to color it in. I think that would look really nice!

The weekend banner, checklists, dividers and icons are from the monthly kits from Ladybugzdesignz. The smaller teardrops, TV stickers and smaller flags are from abundanceoferica. The turkeys and decorative stickers are from a Darice sticker book which are easily found for $1 at Michaels.

What do you do to your planner to spruce it up and have a bit of fun?
