We’ve partnering up with Avery this week to create some very fun and functional items!
Hi Sweets, Sparkle here and I am excited to be showing off some great products from both Sweet and Avery! Today I am sharing some stickers I made and this week’s layout in my planner. With summer right around the corner, I thought it would be fun to use the Nod to Mod set as my main theme. I just love those flamingos and pineapples! Don’t you?
So many of us are busy and always on the go. As a fulltime working mom, I don’t always get as much time as I would like to be crafty. To save time while I’m setting up my planner for the week, I like to have sticker sheets to use on hand. Avery makes labels in every size imaginable!! I like to use these small label sheets to stamp out my routine weekly tasks.
I love to color, so most of the time my images are stamped in black. Depending on the color scheme I chose for the week, I will color the images to match. I also like to use coordinating ink colors for my sentiments and tasks. These Avery label sheets are only 4×6 inches, so they are easy to slip into a pocket or a folder in your planner.
When setting up my planner for the week, I use the sections and boxes for events, to dos, and whatever we’re eating for dinner that night. Since I don’t use the headers that are pre-printed in my planner, I like to cover them. Most washi tape is translucent and you can see through it once it’s placed down. To prevent that, I used Avery full sheet labels to cut strips, and cover my headers before I place my washi tape. You can see the difference in the top two sections of my planner page below.
I mostly color images with my Copic markers, and if I tried to color on my planner page directly, they would bleed through. To prevent that, I stamp and color my images on Avery label paper. Since most of the images aren’t that big, I like to use the 2×4 inch label size. I then fussy cut the images and place them in my planner. To see what my layout will look like, I like to place all my pieces down first. This also gives me the opportunity to change things up if I don’t like it or my mood changes!
Once I get everything in place and my images colored, I start sticking my images down. After that’s done, I write and stamp everything else in. I use my far left column for tasks that need to be done this week, but not necessarily by a certain day. My week is pretty filled, but I do like to leave a little bit of white space in case anything changes or anything comes up at the last minute. All of the stamps I used today are linked below.
