Getting Started Using Stickers in your Planner
Stickers are a fun and easy way to add some color and personality to your planner pages. They can help you stay organized and make planning more enjoyable. If you're new to using stickers in your planner, here are some tips to help you get started.
- Choose the Right Stickers, Including Themed Sticker Kits
The first step is to choose the right stickers for your planner. There are a variety of sticker types to choose from, such as functional stickers for tracking appointments and to-dos, decorative stickers for adding some flair, and themed stickers for holidays and special occasions. Additionally, there are themed sticker kits that are designed to fit certain planner layouts, such as Hobonichi Weeks, bullet journal, or vertical planner kits. These kits may include date covers and decorative stickers that are made to fit your planner perfectly, making it easier to plan and decorate. Consider your planner's layout and your planning needs when choosing stickers, and don't forget to check out the themed sticker kits designed for your planner.
- Plan Your Layout
Before you start sticking, plan out your layout. Decide which stickers you want to use and where you want to place them. You can use a pencil to lightly sketch out your layout before adding stickers. This will help you avoid mistakes and ensure that your planner pages look just the way you want them to.
- Use Stickers to Track Important Dates
Stickers can be used to help you remember important dates and appointments. Use date stickers to mark birthdays, meetings, and other events. You can also use stickers to track your fitness goals or water intake.
- Add Some Personality
Decorative stickers can add some personality to your planner pages. Use stickers with your favorite quotes, images, or colors. You can also use stickers to add some fun to your daily tasks. For example, use a sticker of a cupcake to mark a baking day or a sticker of a book to mark a reading session.
- Experiment with Different Sticker Combinations
Don't be afraid to experiment with different sticker combinations. Try mixing and matching stickers of different sizes and styles. You can also layer stickers on top of each other for a more dynamic look.
- Have Fun
Most importantly, have fun with your sticker planning! Don't worry about making mistakes or being perfect. Use stickers to express your creativity and enjoy the process.
Remember to take some pictures of your planner pages once you've added your stickers so you can share them with others. Have fun, and happy planning!
