It’s July so helllooooooooo SUMMER SIXTEEN! Start playing some Drake song, break out your planners, stickers, washi, get comfy, and let’s start PLANNING! In this post I share my July monthly spread with you all. As always be sure to click the links throughout the post for related posts and links to purchase items featured.
I had a lot of fun planning the first few pages of July in my Happy Planner. Of course with it being the 4th of July, I did a patriotic monthly spread. Putting together my monthly spread is pretty easy. What takes me the longest is really making sure my washi is straight. All 4th of July themed stickers used are from the Target Dollar Spot.
First let’s take a quick look at how I revamped my divider. I took a piece of blue card stock and used the July sticker sheet from the Hobby Lobby 12 Month Sticker Pack and added some firework stickers from Target that I had purchased last year. After a little bit of layering and adding the fireworks, I love how it turned out.
Moving on to the monthly view, let’s start with the sidebar. I took a list pad that I had purchased from Target last year. It said ‘Land of the Free’ at the top and I just wanted the colors so I cut that off. I then layered two lists together, added glue, and cut the excess. I will say when working with thin paper to use double sided tape. Glue can make the paper wilt quickly. I didn’t have anything I wanted to apply to the sidebar to decorative stickers did the job.
To mark my bills I cut up sticky notes from Target into page flags. I had a lot of themed deco stickers, but I had to work with what I had to make it functional. My favorite box would have to be July 4th. The “07.04” is from the July page in the Hobby Lobby Month of the Year sticker pack. The flag is from one of the Target sticker sheets. Aside from marking my last two pay days at my current job that was pretty much it. I will be going in throughout the month and filling in what’s happened with pen.
I loved covering the blank boxes at the top. I was thinking of doing all stars washi tape, but I love the way it turned out playing with both the stars and stripes. The deco stickers are really optional and I could’ve done without them, but eh, it still works.
