So you want a beautifully decorated planner but you’re on a budget and can’t spend $100+ on stickers. I feel you. Glam planning is really expensive. The Erin Condren Life Planner is $50 already. Then add stickers, pens, covers and accessories and you’ve got yourself an investment. Click the link below and I’ll show you how to achieve a cute planner on a budget!
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?
