It’s “Sticker Saturday” and we are sharing a few ways to use stickers in your planner and memory-keeping projects. Stickers are such a simple and effective way to add a little bit of decoration, without the hassle of ink or adhesive. They are great to carry with you so you can plan on the go. If you are memory-keeping and need flat embellishments, stickers are the way to go! And with so many sticker kits to choose from (8, in fact!), you are bound to find one that works for you! So stick around to see what our how our Creative Team uses their sticker kits from the Winter Twilight Collection.
Cocoa Daisy has stickers for specific planners, like the Hobonichi Weeks. Check out how Tiffany uses these stickers to set up her weekly pages.
“Before planning, I gather my go-to supplies:
1. Tweezers – to help place stickers straight on my planner
2. Fine-cut scissors – to cut out small items
3. Magnetic craft board – to hold down items
4. Stickers (of course!) – for fun!
For my Hobonichi Techo Weeks setup, I rely mainly on the Winter Twilight Daisy Weeks Sticker Kit. It makes planning a snap! I added trackers at the top, beautiful, illustrated, border stickers at the bottom, and date covers & checklists on the left side. I kept some white space so I can add journaling and/or more “to do” lists as the week progresses.
In this close-up, you can see the appeal of see-through images and text. I added a charming, “Winter is here” graphic & twig from the Winter Twilight Daisy Add On Sticker Kit. The reindeer and holly illustrations are from the Winter Twilight Printables. I wanted the images to match the soft effect of the “winter” graphic, so I printed them on clear, matte sticker paper.
You can see this spread come together in my “Plan with Me” video on YouTube.”
Planner stickers aren’t just for planners, as Traci demonstrates with her DIY journal cards!
“I’ll admit, other than in my planner, I often get stumped when it comes to using the sticker kits! So, I decided to think outside the planner box and use the Winter Twilight Memory Keeping Sticker Kit, with touches of the Winter Twilight Classic Sticker Kit to DIY my own journal cards!
I created 6 journal cards, all with a variety of intricacies, from decorating pre-done cards to layering all the stickers to create my own! It was a great way to give myself some guidelines while still using the stickers in a new way!
Check out my process video to see how I created these pocket cards.”
We love how Audrey included stickers in her 12×12 layout!
“Hello, Daisies!! Happy December. Each month I am amazed by the incredible variety of stickers available in the kits and the winter twilight collection is no exception. In this layout, I challenged myself to use as many stickers as I could in bringing this snowy scene of my dog Dennis to life. Let’s explore three different ways I used the stickers.
The first stickers I used were the washi stickers from the Winter Twilight Memory Keeping Sticker Kit. I used the strips to the top right and bottom left of the photo to create a pattern that would help my photo stand out. I mixed patterns to give this layout some variety.
Next, I used the letter stickers from the Winter Twilight Memory Keeping Sticker Kit to spell out my title. Since this layout is about my goofy dog Dennis, I let the stickers be wonky and mixed the upper and lowercase letters. By doing this, not only was I able to title my layout, but I also was able to create a fun whimsical pattern to accent the layout.
Last, I wanted to add one last whimsical element to the layout, again to show the joy and goofiness of Dennis in the snow, so I placed the snowman sticker from the Winter Twilight Planner Kit on paper and fussy cut him out. Then I popped him up with pop dots from my stash to add a bit more dimension to this layout. I really love the wintery fun vibes the stickers gave to this spread. I can’t wait to see what you do with them.”
