Hello and welcome back to Gimmemymascara!
I know I’ve been absent for quite a while but I woke up this morning to a notification from WordPress letting me know how well my blog has been doing, even in my absence, and how my views were sky rocketing! WOAH! That’s definitely one way to help me out of bed on a #HumpDay! I went through my stats to notice planner related posts are what y’all are loving most right now, and today being the Erin Condren Life Planner release day, I thought a planner post was fitting!
I got word of the EC release last week, and while bloggers like Elle Fowler were raving about the new planners, I thought of how much I would really use a vertical planner and how it would fit into my day to day life. I also remembered I had bought the MAMBI 365 Happy Planner at Michaels a few months back while it was on sale and I thought I would use it this week as a test run for the EC. Here’s how the week’s going so far:
A) FULL BOX STICKERS!!! I recently got a few of the full box stickers from ItsJustPaperCo during one of her ToonieTuesday sales and i’ve been itching to use them! This week I used the Welcome to Paradise collection and having a full row of full box stickers in the center of my planner has been so fun and colourful! I’ve always thought full boxes took up too much room but it’s summer, and I really don’t have all that much going on this week, so it worked out perfectly! So far so good.
**I didn’t think I was doing a post on this spread so I didn’t bother taking any pictures of it before the pen! I’m sorry I can’t show you the whole thing, for privacy reasons, but here’s what I do have..**
As promised, here are the stickers I made myself for my August 2015 monthly view! I use the Large Kate Spade planner, and this month’s decor was inspired by Lilly Pulitzer! I do keep my stickers to a minimal and leave myself lots of room to write in, but here’s what I came up with.. To see the full spread, check out my Plan With Me video on YouTube!
As always, these are other people’s images that I found on google and pasted together in a word document. I did NOT draw anything you see here, and do not wish to take credit for any else’s work! I’m simply sharing the exact images with you since so many of you have asked me to!
I’ve also uploaded another sheet of stickers, inspired by both Lilly Pulitzer and Kate Spade, feel free to mix and match the sheets together!
Enjoy. xoxo Anisa
Lilly Pulitzer Inspired Planner Stickers
Welcome Back! I recently saw Elle Fowler and Belinda Selene create the planner addict tag, and I thought I would answer some of the questions for you here! Enjoy.
1.) How many planners do you have/own?
I usually switch planners at the start of every school year, not calendar year, and I’ve used a planner since the first grade, you do the math. I’m pretty sure my mom has kept a few of my planners from grade school, but I’m not sure where they are right now… I do have my high school planners and the ones I’ve used since the start of University. Here’s what my planner from 2012 looks like, I was in my senior year of high school! I found this gem at PINK by Victorias Secret and we had a lovely time together. Fun Fact: I only started using the monthly view page of my planners this year, I use to find them so strange before! LOL
2.) How many planner do you actually use at one time?
One! I use my planner to eliminate stress and anxiety, having more than one would be totally counterproductive. To see the planner I’ll be using starting August 2015, click HERE.
3.) When did you first start using a paper planner?
First grade! I started real young. Continue reading
