Happy Mail | Fabulously Planned

I recently placed an order with the Etsy shop Fabulously Planned. This is my third with the shop and the quality never ceases to amaze me. I placed my order on October 26th during the 50% off sale, but it took 3 weeks for me to get it. I never had a problem receiving stickers from this shop, but the process did take a bit longer than I expected.

I ordered two weekly kits, a Christmas countdown, gas stickers, and received a Thanksgiving sampler sheet. The two weekly kits I will be using throughout December. One is a traditional Christmas set which I’ll be using the week of Christmas. The second set was roses with the color scheme. My mother’s birthday was December 10th and I decided to dedicate a layout to her. Roses for Rosa. I was debating on whether I wanted to use the Christmas countdown in the monthly spread or my weekly view, but it’ll fit nicely at the bottom of each day throughout my weekly spreads for the month.

The gas sticker sheet was a huge surprise based off how big the sheet was. I also like that these gas stickers had the dollar sign already on them. The size plus the variety of colors will make them easy to use in any spread in both my monthly and weekly views. As for the bonus sheet, I’ll be using the Thanksgiving sampler during Thanksgiving week.

Plan With Me: November 2nd-8th

October has come and November is in full swing. Thanksgiving is right around the corner and  Last week (October 26th – November 1st) I created a Halloween spread that I absolutely loved. Check out the full layout below:

For this current week I wanted to create a spread using the stickers I received from Pineapple Paper Co. along with the Darice sticker book ‘Give Thanks.’ The stickers from Pineapple Paper Co. were sent to me as I was chosen to be a part of the PR team. You can see what else was sent in my welcome package HERE.  I knew with the set I’d be able to make a complete layout without having to pick through my other Etsy stickers.

I decided to use the full box sticker across the entire middle section and interchange the colors. The boxes were made for an Erin Condren planner, but being that I use a MAMBI Happy Planner, the boxes were too short. To make up the space I used the half boxes underneath, alternating the colors again. To mark off my blog posts I used the orange flags.

I need to purchase the whiteout tape so that I can clear the morning / afternoon / night in the corners along with the design at the bottom. I had to layer the washi tape and it still isn’t the best as the design peaked through, but it’ll do. My first fall design was for the week of September 21st-27th and I wasn’t sure if this one would turn out the same or different due to the orange/brown color scheme. I’m happy with the result and I can’t wait to add and layer stickers throughout the week.

I used the Darice stickers in my November monthly layout, coming soon, but the splashes throughout this layout really worked well. I also added scrapbook paper that I used in my last weeks spread to the sidebar and I plan to do that for the upcoming weeks. I’m not a huge fan of the lines and I can always improvise if I need a longer to-do list. Although I covered the sidebar I added the fall sticker from the sampler sheet and put it in the corner.

Again, I love how this layout turned out. The added chevron makes it fall chic. Be sure to follow me on Instagram (@ChaoticCritic) to see how I add to it throughout the week. For the full spread check back next week. Next week will be a Lung Cancer Awareness themed spread which I’m really excited about. Direct links to stickers are below along with my plan with me video. Enjoy!
