I really have had so much going on IRL the last few weeks, but I have officially made a blogging schedule and I plan on sticking to it! Lots of subscription boxes, product reviews and photos and DIY goodies to come this weekend 🙂
This is how I decorated my Kikki K lilac personal planner for this week. The first photo shows the weekly view with my bookmarks and quote card; this photo (directly above) shows the weekly view without those things in the way — not much of a difference. The quote card was part of the Kikki K Be Brave Planner Dashboard Kit ($19.95; kikki-k.com), along with some of the larger stickers that I used, as well as the butterfly cutout at the top of the left page. I am obsessed with Kikki K and I love decorating my planner and doing other DIY projects with the endless amounts of stationary goodies that they have available.
Here is a better close-up of the butterfly cutout that I was talking about before. The planner kit also comes with bird cutouts which are also really cute. The little blue tag is a gift tag which is part of Kikki K’s Be Brave DIY Sticker Book ($19.95; kikki-k.com). I would say I do about 75% of my planner decorating with various DIY sticker books from Kikki K — they come with tons of awesome stickers in all different shapes and sizes, as well as sticker tags (like to/froms to put on presents), border stickers and these paper gift tags that you can use for a bunch of different purposes.
The gold cutout heart is from a random gold hearts and stars sticker sheet that I think I got at Target or Michael’s (both of which always have tons of awesome planner decorating goodies).
I’m so in love with these little owl sticky notes, which I also used in my monthly planner decoration for September. I picked them up on a random trip to Barnes & Noble last month, and they are also available on the Barnes & Noble website: Owls Page Mates ($3.95 for 180 page markers in six different colors; barnesandnoble.com). I use these everywhere — my planner, my daily diary, as page markers in the books I’m reading, etc. They’re adorable and super useful 😀
I also wanted to get a better photo of the stickers in the bottom right corner of this photo — the puffy ice cream pop stickers. I’ll get a better photo when I use more of them in my weekly decoration next week. But anyway, these are currently my absolute favorite stickers — they are super cute and puffy (which makes them even cuter).
These are the (appropriately named) Cute Soft Stickers from Kikki K ($3.95 for two sheets; kikki-k.com) and there are over 80 different stickers, including yummy foods, hearts, the sun, sailboats, cutesy animals and more. I just got another set of these stickers for free from Kikki K, which made me a very happy planning girl!
This last photo just shows some more stickers from the Kikki K Be Brave DIY Sticker Book ($19.95; kikki-k.com). The washi tape I used this week comes from:
1). Peach-colored tape at the top: Target’s $1 section
2). Gold glitter tape: Scotch brand, from Target, Staples, etc.
3). Light gray-blue with white dots: Michael’s
4). Gold chevron print: Kikki K (this particular tape is discontinued)
