I’m beyond excited for all the things in this blog! First, if you had a chance to pick up the VB Mystery Box in the April Imperfect sale, you may have received one of theVB Sticker Planners. I had been eyeing another one for the longest. I have a few of them that I keep on my desk, but they are all filled. I had been toying with the idea of using one for on-the-go planning, but I didn’t want to empty one of those out. The surprise was right on time!
I don’t always carry my VB Tote around with me, especially on the weekends. I wanted to be able to have some of my planning tools readily available while out and about on Saturdays and Sundays. The Sticker Planner is compact, but it certainly holds a lot! I can have my most-used items with me and just throw it in my purse.
Here’s a look at what I put inside my new Sticker Planner. If you didn’t get one during the Imperfect Sale, don’t worry, it’s still available in three colors.
The first items that I added to the full sleeve inserts (included with product) were the small sticker sheets from theMeadow VBKit. This is the VBKit that I used this week in my VBWeeks planner, so if I need to add a sticker here or there, they are easily within reach. There are tons of page sleeves and dividers, so I also included the small sticker sheets from last month’sWild Styled VBKit.
To add a little decor, I wanted to add some journaling cards. I couldn’t find any that were the perfect size, so I grabbed some duplicate “Thank You” cards that Tiffany sends out with orders. Like some of you, I have a ton of them, and just because they’re duplicates doesn’t mean I can’t find a use for them.
I measured one of the small sticker sheets using the Meadow VBKitacrylic ruler(isn’t it adorable!) and found that it measured 3.5 in x 4.5 in. Next, I made two small marks on the card as a cutting guide. Once I cut both cards down, they were a perfect fit for the sleeves. I used them as dashboards before the two sections I created for the small sticker sheets.
Now it was time to add some accessories. I wanted to make sure to include somewashi tape. I used two old plastic calendar cards and made washi tape holders. I often use washi tape to block off days or to add an extra reminder for an important task.
For this, I used one of the half sleeve inserts that is sold in a pack of ten on the site. These are not included with the Sticker Planner, but you can find them here: Clear Plastic Half Sleeve.
Along with the washi tape, I also added a few paper clips to the same insert. I’ll explain a little later why I needed these.
Next, I added two of my next most-used items:sticky notes and a notepad. I find that these are great for whenever I need to just jot something down quickly to add to my main planner later.
The Sticker Planner has a large pocket on the back cover, so I put theMeadow VBKit Bits & Piecespack inside. I love the little tags. I’m thinking that I can use one of the paper clips to add one of them to my VBWeeks if I need to add something to it while I’m out.
To complete my set-up, I added a VB magnetic bookmark and, of course, my Meadow VBPen.
Now, I am all set to be able to do some weekend on-the-go planning. It’s the perfect size to carry in my purse when I don’t need to carry myVB Tote. I hope you find this idea helpful and would love to see how you are using your Sticker Planner!
