Week 22: Teal, glitter and bats

It was such a nice day today that I decided to decorate my planner outside on my patio table, under my favorite tree.

I’m a bit late in posting my new week layout due to the holiday weekend but here it is:

I used bat and skull patterned washi tape along with some sticky flags from Target.

The first half of the week has a bat book clip I made out of some left over scrapbook paper and a striped paperclip.

For the second half of the week, I added a raccoon clip from Kawaii Paperie and a cloud book clip that I made to go with the bat. ^.^

I embellished the pages with a few glittery teal hearts from a die cut pack by Heidi Swapp and some bat stickers leftover from Halloween.

Love this kawaii cloud pen!

Lucky likes to lay next to or on top of my Filofax when I’m taking pictures. Silly kitty!

Hope you had a great Memorial Day and weekend.

Totoro Theme for Week 19

I watched one of my all time favorite movies My Neighbor Totoro on Sunday and was inspired to decorate my planner pages for this week with him in mind.

I used cut outs of  Totoro and lots of washi tape, along with some hydration tracking stickers from MsWenduhh. I love these stickers she’s created, they’re a great way to keep track of your water intake.

Just print them out, cut to size, then run through a sticker maker and voila stickers!

 You can find them—> here

My planner obsession

I have loved stationery for as long as I can remember and planners are no exception!

For several years, my go-to planners have been from the Korean brand Unipics. They come in a bound book format with adorable illustrations on each page and contain a weekly, monthly and yearly overview.

This year I decided to switch to a binder style planning format.  The fact that you can arrange the pages to your liking and take out pages to write on them was really appealing. As a lefty I’ve always had a hard time writing in books so this was an improvement! I started off with a green a5 by Filofax and my collection has grown from there.  I now have a total of six, with two more by Paperchase on the way.  >.<

It’s fun to rotate binders every month or so. (My way of excusing the fact that I have so many) ^.^

Here are my current planners:

One of my favorite things to do is decorate my planner pages for each week . It’s really fun to load up your pages with washi tape, stickers, sticky notes and paper clips!

Here are some weekly pages that I’ve decorated:

I’ve found that there is an amazing community of planner lovers on Instagram and Facebook.  It’s neat to know that there are others who are just as obsessed with stationery as I am! I love logging on and seeing everyone’s page layouts and new accessories.

One of my new favorite accessories is this Game of Thrones planner charm that CraftersRetreat on Etsy custom made for me.  It’s all about Arya and House Stark. So cool!!
