Handmade Planner Stickers

I am working on some new products for my shop and I wanted to share what I have worked up so far. These are my new Planner Stickers. Each sheet measures 2 5/8 x 1 inch and these stickers are great additions to any planner page. They should be listed in my Etsy Shop some time next week.

How to make your own Planner goodies


I just used some ribbon from my stash to make some cute bookmarks for my planners and to send in some happy mail. 

These stickers were made with Avery labels and my Silhouette Cameo. I will be posting the cut file to my etsy shop soon.  I used my large collection of Sharpie markers to color them before I pulled the paper off from around the stickers. 

Here is what they look like after they have been cut. Each sticker group measures 2 5/8 inches x 1 inch. I used standard mailing labels to cut these out because I have a large stash. You could use regular sticker paper as well to cut them out of.

How to make custom color labels


I used some sharpie markers to color plain white labels to use in my planner I thought I would share them here and give you a few tips: 
  • Store your Sharpies point side down and this will keep the tip very juicy.
  • Use fresh ones and color over each a few times to get good coverage.
  • Let them dry overnight before you use them and they will stick better.
  • Keep a paper towel handy to wipe up the backing paper
  • When coloring the reinforcement labels make sure you have a piece of paper under it. (see last picture to see what happened to my table because I didn't do this.

My New Sketchbook Planner

I have always loved the thought of using a planner and I have tried over the years to keep up with one but I always seem to still have a bunch of post it notes and little pieces of papers with notes all over the place. Then I found the Midori Traveler's Notebook . I loved the concept of a cover that I could have a bunch of notebooks all in one place. I loved the idea but never followed through with one. I found a couple of videos on YouTube that I liked about how I could make my own cover out of leather or vinyl but kept it on a to do list for "Someday" well last week someday came and I found some beautiful colors of vinyl at a local mill and just had to make a couple. The ones above are a couple of the ones that I have made so far. I am now up to 4 made to completion and a couple of more in the works.  I really love being able to keep a few different notebooks in one place and not all over my purse and I can have one topic in each of them. I also have a calendar book in it as well.  


I have always carried a sketchbook in my purse and a small bag of supplies and these are what I am carrying with me now. 
Some Washi Tape
Sticky Note Page Flags
and some Target Dollar Spot Gel Pens



This is how everything looks when I load it into my bag.
