It’s FEBRUARY! January is over and my anniversary month has arrived. I wanted to have fun with this layout and play with the washi that I had along with stickers from the Target One Spot. Despite wanting to make the spread pretty, I wanted to find a balance between decorative and functional.
First up I grabbed my January spread so that it’d be easier for me to mark my bills. I wasn’t a fan of my January spread and when I’m not a fan I don’t use it. The only thing I added were my gas trackers. I usually just put bills, birthdays, and when I’m babysitting in my monthly spread. Adding decorative stickers can easily overcrowd the calendar.
I had a lot of fun placing the stickers and due to the way that my bills fell this month, I tried something different in my sidebar. I go to the chiropractor on a weekly basis and I marked my appointments in the sidebar opposed to the month view. The wadi was fun to play with and I added just about all the Valentine washi that I had. Aside from washi tapes, I used washi samples from Heidi Swapp that I can’t wait to continue to use throughout the month.
The newest addition to this spread was a card. I had received it in a planner swap and I had recently just opened the set when I created my spread for the week of January 25th-31st. I took the card and I added an Erin Condren quote sticker along with stickers from a Heid Swapp sheet. Sometimes when you don’t plan you get great results and I just placed the stickers without much thought. Thankfully it worked.
I also decorated my divider as usual, which I’m not a huge fan of. I didn’t have scrapbook paper to match for the month so I used photo paper. It didn’t adhere all that well, but I’ll leave it as is. I did decorate my ‘This Month Currently’ sheet which I will use to mark goals of the month and as they’re completed I’ll put a heart next to them. I love the way it turned out and I’ll definitely be decorating from now on.
