Handmade Planner Stickers Using Diecuts, Stamps, and Cardstock

This is a fun and easy craft project for making your own stickers – planner stickers or gift tags or whatever – using card stock, stamps, scissors or a trimmer, and optionally, die cutting. #PlannerCommunity #PlannerStickers #stickeraddict

I love crafting. Last summer, I was introduced to the wonderful world of alcohol markers, adult coloring, and card making. Then in fall, I turned into a planner junkie as well.

Handmade Planner Stickers

I love making my own cards and planner goodies. You can use this idea for cards, gift tags, or any other purpose that inspires you, as well as planners.

So here's what I did:

Handmade Planner Stickers

First, I picked out some cool cardstock from my stash. I have some nice patterned paper that isn't too thick.

I cut out some full boxes using my paper trimmer. For the Happy Planner, that's 1.5 x 2.5 inches.

I have some small rubber stamps that I used for some of my stickers. Sentiments included, "yay," "on the LIST," and "Good Times."

You could fussy cut these with scissors, but I have some dies of the right size for those sentiments. I even have a talk bubble that I used for a few.

The "BEST DAY!" sticker is a die. If you don't have a die, you could use a stamp or hand print it onto cardstock and cut with a trimmer or scissors.

Finally, to turn them into stickers, I used quarter inch double-sided tape, a staple in any crafter's stash. You could use any adhesive, but that isn't messy, and it holds well.

Watch the video about this craft project to make homemade planner stickers.

What do you think of this project? any questions?

Cheers to your #BlissfulLife!

What you focus on expands. That's the power of intention.

I love giving. Gifts, smiles, encouragement...big fun for me. Yet being able to receive is just as vital as being able to give. This week, my self mastery focus word is "Receive." I put my focus word in my planner, just beliw the monthly calendar.

To give without graciously receiving is like haling without inhaling. You need to do both in order to breathe.

Important NOTE: This post originally came out December 20 of 20165. It is updated to reflect a publishing change. AWOC Books closed its doors, and my co-author and I just released the book on I'll Push You Steer: The Definitive Guide to Stumbling through Life with Blinders On on Kindle.

People around the world are celebrating miracles at this time of year, which is December, in case you read this some months in the future. Jews celebrate the miracle of the oil, Hindus the miracle of light, and Christians the miracle of the savior's birth, just to mention a few.

I'll Push You Steer Kindle cover

I was thinking about one of the stories in my first book, I'll Push You Steer, with my fabulous co-author and dear friend Bonnie Tesh. We each shared tales from our journey in what many would call "disability."

Award Winning & Best Selling Author Ronda Del Boccio's Books On Amazon

One of my contributions, "An Angel Came," is the story of how myt belief trumped the church's teachings when I went to visit a comatose woman in the hospital. Martha was not expected to awaken.

Do you expect miracles? I do. P

I can dly believe that it's been almost 11 years since my co-author Bonnie Tesh and I started working on our first book. People kept - and still keep - telling us how inspiring we both are. She has survived cancer 3 times now. I am mostly blind. Neither of us lets these supposed disabilities stop us.

We were sitting beside each other at a regional writing conference listening to a group of 4 women share their journey co-authoring their book.

We started to think we could do that. We could turn our spunky attitude into a book that could provide comfort, inspiration, and a kick in the pity pot.

We met in May to plan our book, and we finished it in 10 weeks. The next month, a publisher picked it up, and we had it in our hands 6 months after the journey began. Below is the cover (which neither of usever liked) of our original print version of I'll Push, You Steer: The Definitive Guide to Stumbling through Life with Blinders on.

Dreaming Up Stories Literally!

Strange things can happen in dreams. Here’s how one became a best selling story! #BlissfulLife #WritersLife

SHARE!
Facebooktwittergoogle_pluspinterestlinkedintumblr

Writing is a funny business. I never know what will spark my imagination It could be anything from a line on a TV show to a song lyric to an encounter at the grocery store to a misty morning...

to a dream.

Yep, I have actually dreamed up stories. The Assassin and the Prince, one of my fantasy novellas, is just such a tail...and tale.

While the purrsonality of feline assassin Aree owes inspiration to my former companion, Tica, that's where the connection to anything here in earth reality ends.

Cover of The Assassin and the Prince YA fantasy romance novela by Ronda Del Boccio

My Muse gifted me with an exquisitely detailed dream about this assassin who found what looked like a cush job, a short gig working for a family seeking a security guard to protect their son, who wanted to go on vacation without his parents.

Aree soon regrets her decision to take a job protecting a pampered young prince who seems to her little more than a spoiled brat of no substance.

For his part, the sheltered Crispin has never been around other sentient species, so he has a lot to learn about how to treat those who are different. (So do most humans living here on earth who need only encounter different nationalities and religions...but I digress.)

OK so I guess hat's another relation to reality.

The dream provided every detail of the story, including characters, fight scenes, conflict, and loads of funny bits. It's definit3ely a humorous paranormal story.

I will post an excerpt in a few days. You can read The Assassin and the Prince on any device. It's available both on Amazon and on Smashwords.

You never know what will come of a dream.

To your #BlissfulLife!

A Milliner, a Haberdasher, and a Scrivener Went to a Bar

A friend asked me wat a haberdasher was, and it got me thinking about cool words I haven’t seen since school (decades ago, ehem, ehem) Here are a few I remember. #wordplay

SHARE!
Facebooktwittergoogle_pluspinterestlinkedintumblr

Does that sound like the beginning of an arcane joke?

The other day, somebody asked me what a haberdasher was, and I started thinking about words I haven't seen since school.

I don't recall when I first encountered Haberdasher, but I know  it was in a British story taking place a couple centuries ago. I associated it with gentlemens' hats, handkerchiefs, and the like.  The Canterbury Tales includes 3 of the notions peddlers.

Cool Words ya Just Don't See Anymore

I don't remember my first literary encounter with a milliner, but since ladies' hat-making isn't that big these days, it was also in an older story.

Where I met "scrivener" sticks out clearly inmy mind. IT was in a super-annoying story I had to read in sophomore year of high school, "Bartleby the Scrivener.." Maybe it says something that the story stuck out for well north of 3 decades, but not for the right reason. Scribes back in the day, writers in more modern parlance.

Here are a few other words I first met in grade school that aren't used in the same aspect today.

  • Ginger, as in careful (not the root),
  • Ecstasy as in supreme joy (not drugs), and
  • Elated, as in overjoyed (close cousin to ecstatic).

What out-of-date or out-of-time words do you remember from school? Add them to the comments below.

If you love words, come play Word Streak, Word Chums, or Words with Friends with me.

Live the Plan: 2 Easy Ways to Boost Motivation

Do you have trouble finding motivation to make your plans a reality? This video tutorial provides 2 SIMPLE tips to get our excited about living the plan. #BLISSfulLife #LiveThePlan #SelfMastery

SHARE!
Facebooktwittergoogle_pluspinterestlinkedintumblr

I've had such a good time using a paper planner, decorating it with fun stickers, and being creative while I stay on task. But I recently discovered that a lot of people who ove creating a plan fall short on living the plan.

I'm a "plantser." Yes, I plan some things, but I can't be rigid. It just isn't in my nature. I'm also a "pantser" going by the seat of my pants. I think you can be both and have a super happy life, somewhat planned and organized and somewhat free-flowing and intuitive.

One of my planner friends said her issue was motivation. She said, "I have no real excuse."

No judgment here. Please don't call yourself lazy or any similar word if you fall into this category.

I gave it some deep thought, and I think the motivation issue may arise because of being too hard on yourself. Here is a video with 2 quick tips to help you live the plan! Watch now! Continue reading "Live the Plan: 2 Easy Ways to Boost Motivation"

It helped me be more thoughtful about bringing into my life experience elements that make me happy and use what I have well.

It affected me in little ways. For example, I was watching a movie I didn't enjoy, and rather than continue being dissatisfied watching it, I decided it wasn't entertaining and meant a poor use of my time resource. Had I been entertained, I would have continued.

I chose against a couple of purchases that, while cool, really wouldn't bring me closer to an experience I wanted, or happiness, or anything else.

What if everything you did moved you into a blissful life? How would that change things?

Did you ever spend a lot of time planning but then not follow the plan? Here are some tips for LIVING your plan #BLISSfulLife #LiveThePlan #planning #PlannerGirl #PlannerCommunity #PlannerNerd

I have learned that a lot of people who love planning aren't that great about making their plans a reality. That loses the point of planning.

Now, I'm a plantser...half planner, half pantser (as in "seat of the pants" in case that didn't make sense). I get most of the things I set out to do done. Not all, of course. Life happens sometimes, but most.

So if you can allow the blind to lead you, watch this video!

Here are the resources I mention in the video: Continue reading "Don’t Just Plan: LIVE the plan Video tutorial"
