Printable Stickers by Green Lime Designs

Hi Planner Friends!

I wanted to show you a new set of stickers I was lucky enough to review and they are awesome, I definitely had to share!

Christina from Green Lime Designs sent me some of her stickers to try in my planner spreads and I could not believe the cuteness that I saw – okay, kidding….if you have ever seen her bullet journal pages, you know she is amazingly talented. If you have not been able to check out her pages before, you should definitely follow the link above. I have been a fan of her bullet journal pages forever and I pretty much jumped for excitement.

She usually uses her stickers in her bullet journal, but you can use these in any planner. I use mine in my Mini Happy Planner with pages from Annie Plans Printables.

The stickers come in a printable PDF form that you can hand cut, or you could do like I did and send them through a cutting machine. You can use this video (Silhouette Studio) to help with that or you can use your (Silhouette) PixScan mat. Can I just mention, it is absolutely amazing having them as printables because you really never run out – just print and cut more!

I did buy additional sticker sets because I could not resist the weather and calendar doodles!

Be sure to head over to her shop and Instagram page where she also co-hosts a doodle challenge each month – this month is a circus theme.

Downloading, Printing and Cutting with the Silhouette Studio

Happy Friday!!

I have been super MIA lately and for that I completely apologize. Our family (all 6 of us) were hit with the flu for the past week, but now we are on our way to feeling much better – just in time to get a fun video to you.

Some awesome ‘Happy Mail’ made it’s way to my house this week – March’s Little Bits Box and it is AMAZING! It was packed with physical and digital products this month, so I show in the video how to download and print it all – even get the Silhouette to cut the stickers for us (you will need a machine for this part, but only a printer and computer for the rest).

March 2017 Week on 4 Pages

Good Morning!

Well… I am definitely one of those planner girls that has insert problems – I change my mind on inserts like crazy, but I have rekindled my love for creating them (inserts) along the way.

This is a set I made for the month of March, they go through Saturday, April 1.

3.13

March 2017 Wo4P

To cut these, I printed front and back (duplex) but you can definitely print all even first and then flip the pages, then print all the odd pages. There are very faint guidelines (all the way around) in order to help cut the pages to fit the personal planner. Also, be sure to print at ‘actual size’ or 100%.

If you have any issues printing these, please don’t hesitate to message me at cheekypapercreations@gmail.com

How To >> Mommy Lhey Digital Stamps into Stickers

Hi Guys!!

I hope you are all having a fabulous Sunday – it’s all cold and cloudy here in Texas, perfect day for my first YouTube video, right?!

I hope you all enjoy this tutorial on how to turn your Mommy Lhey digital stamps into stickers, using your Silhouette Studio and cutter.

Don’t worry if you don’t have a machine, you can definitely still use the Studio to print your stamps – just don’t worry about the ‘offset’ or registration parts 🙂 You might want to make sure to ‘check’ the print border box, to make sure your stamps stay within in the printers parameters.

If you all have any questions, please feel free to ask away!

Mini Holiday Stickers

Hi Guys!

I made these stickers for a friend and wanted to share with you all, too ❤3

This file is created as a Silhouette Studio file, so it is formatted to work with the ‘print and cut’ feature. You can still print and hand cut it without the program – you definitely do not need a Silhouette machine in order to make these work for you. If you would rather these as a PDF, please don’t hesitate to leave a comment and I will upload a version in that format. **Update: >>  Holiday Stickers in PDF format 🙂

I use the stickers in the Peanuts Planner Co personal monthly calendar and they fit perfectly. Head on over to Varvara’s blog and Etsy shop for more amazing planner inserts -she even accepts custom requests. 1
I hope you all enjoy and if there is anything you would like to see as a free download, please leave a comment below – I will do everything I can to make that happen.

Happy Planning!

Zebra Pen Happy Mail

Pens, highlighters, pencils….I am right there with every other planner addict and have a love for these fabulous writing utensils. I was recently sent a box to review from Zebra, full of pen happiness and wanted to share them.

16904658_399929397030346_1855680973161604777_o

First up, the Z-Grip Plus pencil, I cannot sing this pencil’s praises enough! I am not and have never been a pencil person, but I am pretty sure this pencil has just changed my opinion. It has a weight in it so that it feels heavier than a normal pencil – giving it just enough weight to have the feeling of a substantial pen – perfection. The eraser is tucked into the top, and is easily adjusted by a little twist. It also pen has a slight grip to it making it really comfortable to hold.
**Okay guys, I had to come back to add something that makes these pencils even better (if that was even possible). The weight is not in the pencil just to add substance – it actually releases the lead!!! If you shake it, the lead comes out – so you can either ‘click it’ at the top or shake it to get the lead out. How amazing is that?!

Pencil

The Super Marble Gel Pens are so much fun! These pens instantly took me back to my teenage years, when I had to have every marble pen available. They add so much color to the pages and I love that you never know what color is going to come out next.

MarblePen

The Zebrite highlighters are amazingly fluorescent! The picture does not do the colors justice – they are super pigmented and so bright. They definitely make whatever ever words you need highlighted, POP!! They are dual tips, so they have a medium tip on one end and a fine tip on the other. The set also comes with a green color, but my husband loved it so much he took it to his class, haha. I will add an updated picture when I can pry it from him.

I wanted to add, I only let my gel pen dry for about 30-45 seconds (if that) and then blew on it a little before highlighting the text – there was no smearing.

Highlighters

The Sarasa Fineliner pens come in such a pretty assortment of colors, they are super fine pointed, acid-free, water resistant porous pens. These  will work perfectly for drawing and well…pretty much everything in bullet journals!

Pens

Zebra Pen has generously provided some of these great products to give to one lucky person! Stay turned for details on this fun giveaway!

Personal Size Daily Planner Pages

I had been looking for planner pages that fit my needs and couldn’t find quite the right ones…so I ended up creating some.

17097836_398067523883200_7754448952354050577_o

These have a graph on the left side of the page for daily tasks, notes, etc with a small side bar of the hourly break down. I am a stay-at-home-mom to four little ones, so my day is not super filled with appointments, but when I do have them – I like having a place to put them. On the other hand, I like that if I don’t have any appointments, it doesn’t take up too much room & I don’t feel like I have wasted the space.

There is also a small bullet area, I use this for social media tasks and progress (icons by Agata Kuczminska).  For those that might not want the icons, I have included a second version of the inserts without them.

screenshot_20170305-075253These are undated so you could use them all year round. I have been using my Mega Date StampMommy Lhey Brush My Alpha or Mommy Lhey Pixie Alpha stamp sets to mark my dates but the possibilities are endless.

17038714_396828290673790_3732749747669562170_o16991783_397240447299241_4592226206735251782_o16991930_398581027165183_2583670526605710424_o

The inserts are formatted to print on personal size (3.75″ x 6.75″) paper without any margins and the print settings: “Scale to Fit” or “Scale” at 100% – either way will print properly.

These inserts are free to download for personal use only.

Bullet Journal Key

Ever since finding the bullet journal world, I have been using bullets in all of my planning, whether it has been in a traveler’s notebook, a ringed planner or a Leuttrum notebook. I do notice, though, that my shapes/fills of my bullet points are constantly changing so I made myself a key. I used my Silhouette Design Studio program (free for download) to draw it up and then print out.

I have attached the file for you to be able to make it your own. You will notice a blank spot at the top, as I stamped out my letters with the Mommy Lhey Brush My Alpha stamp set. For those that have the Silhouette cutting tools, I have it set to cut the red lines only, in ‘Advanced Settings’.

Bullet Journal Key

Hope you all enjoy, happy planning!!
