I got my first Erin Condren planner at the end of April and wrote about it in this blog post. I have been using my planner every day since then and decided to show you what this week's spread looked like now that it's done. I'm also going to show you some storage ideas and talk about the Etsy shops I use for my stickers.
First, let's look at the pages for this week:
And next, here are my storage ideas for your planner supplies:
At first I was just writing in my planner but soon decided that I wanted to make things more colorful by using stickers. My inspiration was one of the "Plan With Me" videos that Elle Fowler does on YouTube. You should check out her videos for ideas and for coupon codes to the Etsy stores I'll mention below.
Here are the Etsy stores I have purchased stickers from so far:
All of the stickers I've gotten from these shops have been a really good quality. Just be aware that most of these stores have a 1-2 week shipment window (and sometimes as much as 3 weeks), so don't get frustrated if your stickers don't come as quickly as you might hope.
I've also learned to make my own stickers that are full boxes, like the two you can see on Wednesday. I'll write up the instructions and post them in my next planner update post. It's really easy and very affordable! I'll also talk about stamping in my next post.
I hope you enjoyed getting a look at this week's pages and seeing my storage ideas. If there is anything else planner related that you would like to see, please let me know in the comments below!
Lately I've been hearing a lot about Erin Condren planners and I was curious to see what all the fuss is about. I watched a bunch of videos on YouTube and finally decided that I should get one. I got lucky that the 2015 planners are currently 40% off and I also got $10 off by using a code from someone, so it was super affordable.
The box came while I was out of town, so I was really excited to open it when I finally got home. The packaging is very colorful and fun. Here's what the inside of the package looked like:
I ended up choosing the Sequins planner because I liked how colorful it is. Here's a link to see it on the Erin Condren website. They'll put your name on the cover for free.
This is the list of everything that came in the box:
Here are some pictures of the inside of the planner:
Of course I had to go out and buy some supplies to make my new planner colorful and pretty. I got some sticky notes, colorful pens, list notepads, along with some fun paper clips and some adhesive tape. All the paper products came from the dollar section at Target and I actually went back and found some more today that aren't pictured. Here's everything I bought on my first trip:
I'll get to work on filling out my planner so that I can share some pictures once it's decorated.
