It has been such a long time since I last posted on this blog and I can’t believe it’s actually been over a year since my last post! I didn’t have a computer for most of the last year, but now that I have a brand-new, beautiful MacBook Pro, I couldn’t wait to start blogging again!
I really wanted to post about my February planner setup a lot sooner — like, actually IN the month of February — but that didn’t exactly go the way I wanted it to, so I’m posting about it now instead … on the very first day of March! I’m going to make a post on my March planner setup in a few days, so I will have back-to-back planner posts. 🙂
I took these photos with my iPhone 6S camera and I think I took them late in the afternoon, almost at nighttime, so the color isn’t really the best. As I get back into blogging and take more photos I will be using my DSLR camera most of the time, but, for now, all I have are these pics. I didn’t want to re-take them because I just wanted to get the blog post up before February was over (and, obviously, that didn’t happen either). But here we go …. !
Since I started my planning obsession and planner decorating a few years ago, I have been getting a brand-new Kikki K planner every December for Christmas. Actually, Kikki K is pretty much the whole reason I happily stumbled upon the world of planning and planner love (addiction).
The planner I got this year was a limited-edition that came in a Christmas gift set. It has beautiful light pink leather with metallic gold polka dots running off the side and down the spine. I love the gold/pink combination so much and as soon as I saw it on Kikki-K.com, I knew this would be my new planner for 2017.
The planner gift set included two rolls of paper tape, a gold pen and these metallic gold alphabet stickers. The stickers went perfectly with my pink-and-gold theme for February and they’re also the perfect size for these monthly pages.
I used gold-ish heart sticky notes and pink page flags which are also from Kikki K, but they were in a (super cute) set I bought over a year ago. This particular style is no longer available but Kikki K does have a bunch of other awesome sticky notes.
I also got the heart and “XO” stickers from Kikki K. They are a part of the Thrive DIY Sticker Book, which is also no longer available (this one I only got a few months ago, around Christmastime). However, there is a Thrive Paper Lover’s Book available and it’s 50%-off right now, which brings the price down to $14.98. This book also has a bunch of stickers in it, plus cute DIY paper projects. Kikki K has other DIY Sticker Books available with different themes/designs as well.
The “nails” sticker and the stickers on the bottom of the page (in the second photo) are from the Ban.do Sticker Book Part Two ($12). I got the diamond magnet bookmark at the top of the page in a set from Michael’s, and you can buy it online for $3.99. The rest of the stickers are also from Michael’s, out of various planner sticker sets (the link for similar stickers is below).
