Handmade Planner Stickers Using Diecuts, Stamps, and Cardstock

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.

What do you think of this project? any questions?

Cheers to your #BlissfulLife!

Paper Planners: What Size and Style Do You Need?

When I was looking into paper planners, I was struggling to figure out what type I needed. I wanted it small, but not too small. At first, I didn't know what I really wanted to plan either.


If you look in the Planner Love category, you'll see posts covering all that. Today is all about size, because...well...size matters!

Too big is cumbersome. Too small is hard to write in. What's your "Goldy Locks" size?

I found this helpful infographic that shows sizes. Click the image or here to see the original source. This isn't my work.

I got a personal size planner, then decided that's good for carrying around, but not big enough to work well for me as someone with limited eyesight and a penchant for decorating my planner!

I got a Happy Planner. This graphic  doesn't have my Happy Planner in it, though. Those pages are 7 x 9.5.

I am (so far...and it's new...) keeping my Happy Planner at home and using it to track everything from the weather and moon phase to gratitude to weekly focus to my writing, blogging and social media schedule. I go through that in a different post, though.

BLISSful Life: Paper or DIgital Planner?

How do you keep track of your day, the things you need to do, the appointments, and all the muchness of living Do you use a paper planner or an online calendar...or both?

I used to keep a paper planner back when I had jobs with meetings and trips, but I got away from it as an author. A couple months ago, I decided to switch things up and have a paper planner AND Google Calendar to help me keep my life BLISSful.

I SUCK at time. I can think something happened yesterday and maybe it was 3 months ago. I may tell someone I'll be done in 10 minutes, then get wrapped up in a project (or writing a story) for hours.

That's just how I roll, like it or not. As a friend of mine says, "Time isn't even a magazine in my house." So I need to compensate.

The GREAT thing about online calendars

I use Google Calendar, and I love it. It's great for keeping me on track with specific times I need to do things like:

  • Writing contest . entry deadlines
  • Due dates
  • When to start getting ready or leave
  • Reminders (more on that soon).

I love Google Calendar. It's so versatile. I like the notifications, reminders, and goals available. I'll go into how I use it in a separate post. for now...

Here's what I love about Google Calendar in brief:

  • Color coding events (to match the purpose of the activity)
  • Customizable notifications beore the event
  • Ability to invite others.
  • Remibders
  • Goals
  • And it's free

And all that's great, but I decided I need to keep track of more in my life than just the time I need to do things. I wanted to keep track of things like moon phase, weather, what I accomplished, a weekly focus, gratitude and more. So I got a paper planner.

Here's a key question to help you decide how and why to plan, on paper or online: Continue reading "BLISSful Life: Paper or DIgital Planner?"
