Sticker Organization Pt. 2 | Etsy Stickers

Welcome to another post here on the blog. Back to back posts? I know, let’s go with it. Today we’re talking more sticker storage and this time for those lovely Etsy stickers. The worst thing about buying stickers is when you’ve accumulated so much, but have no where to put them. In my previous post I provided several options for how I store my regular stickers in my sticker stash, but this post is all about Etsy.

Etsy Sticker Haul Featuring JuJuAllOver & Sticky Essentials

I haven’t posted an Etsy sticker haul in quite some time. I’ve featured shops here and there that I’ve ordered from, but this is the largest order I’ve placed in a while. Click the link below to see my other Etsy Hauls:

I ordered from two shops over Valentine’s Day weekend, JuJuAllOver and Sticky Essentials. Both shops were having a sale and I don’t like ordering from shops unless there is one. I’m not talking the usual 10% off your order. I like to wait around for coupon codes for 40% or more. I typically go for the 50% off. It’s great when shops have no minimum with their coupon code. Be sure to search around on Instagram or even Facebook groups, but Instagram is the fastest and esisest way to find the latest sales.

Starting with Sticky Essentials, she was having a sale where you spend $25 you get 6 sheets free. Her usual deal is spend $15, get 1 sheet free or spend $25 get 3 sheets free. I ordered two kits: the March monthly kit and mystery kit, plus a sheet of TV stickers. The March monthly kit was $14, which I got for free since it’s 6 sheets and the mystery kit was $22.95. I ended up paying $28.70 (including shipping) for my order.

I really like the stickers from Sticky Essentials and her price point is great. For 6 sheets you pay $14 which breaks down to $2.33 a sheet. Plus with the mystery kit you get 10 sheets plus 2 extras. She sent a Le Pen plus a cute paperclip. A lot of mystery kits start at $25 so for what she’s sending, it’s a great price point. Links to purchase below:

Moving onto JuJuAllOver, her sale was spend $50 and get 50% off. I purchased 3 kits plus some cute little extras. With her kits all sheets are sold separately for $3.50 each. I love that her shop offered the Happy Planner version. While the Happy Planner and the Erin Condren Life Planner have a nearly identical layout, the Happy Planner boxes are definitely taller. I have the “Good Things Are Going to Happen” edition so my boxes are even taller. I love that the kits were offered with wash strips which really helps to fill inane white spaces in the spread.

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.

Fabulously Planned reopens on Black Friday. Be sure to  follow Fabulously Planned on Instagram for latest updates & sales.

Happy Mail | Pineapple Paper Co.

I was lucky and fortunate enough to be chosen as a PR member for the Etsy shop Pineapple Paper Co. There are a lot of changes that are happening with the brand and I’m excited to share what’s to come with the shop here on the blog and on my Instagram, @chaoticcritic so be sure to follow along. I wanted to share the welcome package with you all since I’ll be using the stickers in my upcoming plan with me.

The owner, Lizzy, sent 8 sheets of stickers and I cannot wait to use them. The layout for the upcoming week will be the fall sampler sheet along with the full and half boxes. I went back and took some of the October sampler stickers and put them in my previous weeks. I did a previous fall layout for the week of September 21st-27th, but another orange and brown layout should be interesting. Also I’ll be using a Chevron print in the following week (11/9 – 11/15) for a Lung Cancer theme so that’ll be fun.

Opposed to other samplers, this one is pretty basic. It doesn’t have icons, but if you have icons or want to draw your own in you can. There’s also no weekend banner, but the sampler is versatile for the month of October as the sheet says, but works well in November as well. Don’t limit yourself to using a sampler for a specific month. Spread out your colors and have fun.

The other stickers that she sent will be great for when I do “blue/teal” layouts; especially the weekend banners. the blog banners I’ll try to fit in with my current layouts, but use the fainter blue shades. You’ll also see the updates for the shop throughout my layouts with the stickers sent. Lasty I love the birthday cakes, but my favorite is the laundry sheet. For those that love big stickers or little ones, you get the best of both worlds with this sheet. Also having an array of colors makes easier to apply to any layout. Stickers such as laundry and birthday, even trash cans and TVs, are  great to have on hand because you know that you’ll use them. I really love that this laundry sheet comes in the two different sizes.

The Etsy shop will reopen as of Monday, 11/2, and the website is scheduled to launch on November 6th. Of course I’ll be sharing lots more information on the shop throughout the months. To keep up with all Pineapple Paper Co. updates be sure to follow the links below:
