Since I'm a full-fledged planner addict now, I'm always searching for planner inspiration.  I'm currently keeping 2 to 3 planners going.  But my eyes are especially on either a Kikki K or Erin Condren planner sometime in the future.  While thrift store hopping, I've found two Franklin Covey planners, a large and a medium one.  The large one I've already dedicated to serving as my spiritual journal, but I have not decided what to do with the smaller one.  Whenever I do go out thrift shopping, I now look for planners.  Many planner addicts buy stickers and other embellies00 to finish off their planners and give them that personal touch.  I'm grateful that I have my Cricut and Silhouette Cameo machines.  They have proved to be invaluable to me in creating my own embellishments.  I found some very valuable inspiration recently on my Instagram account, a thrifty way to print my own stickers.  Using Avery's white full sheet shipping labels, I can use my own printer to personalize my journals with my very own unique stickers.

So instead of buying 100 sticker sheets online, I can run down to my local Walmart and pick up a pack or two of these.  They work beautifully.  Here are some samples of stickers that I have created:

Here is how I use them in my planner:

Now, if you happen to have one of these tools and you are a planner addict or you are thinking about jumping on  the planner wagon, put these tools to good use and create your own personalized stickers and PLAN ON!

More HAPPiness coming your way.

Here's another inspiring way to send out Happy Mail.  It was created by Janettelaneblog on Instagram. By using simple plastic baseball sleeves, you can personalize your creativity and send a little happiness in the process.  Another added plus is that when folded, It can be mailed in a regular number 10 envie.  Now how's that for inspiration and frugality.  So here is a sample of one that I created:

As you swap with a pen pal, you can store these in a binder.  There is also a FB group.  So if you want to try these and pick up a new pen pal, go over to the group.  Now notice how nicely these can fit in a regular envelope.
