Etsy haul #2

*Disclaimer: All these stickers were purchased with my own money.

Hey loves! First I’d like to say sorry that there hasn’t been a plan with me post. Last week when I was suppose to decorate and take pictures for the post my daughter came down with an infection in her chest then two days after that I became ill and I’m only just starting to feel better. Don’t worry there will still be a month spread post I’m just waiting for my replacement stickers to come. So lets get on with this post which is an etsy haul, I didn’t realise I haven’t done one of these since December. I ordered from four sellers and most of these stickers will be used for spreads in April. All shop links will be at the bottom of the post.

Lets start with VintageRoseStudios ran by Melissa. I only ordered the one sheet which was appointment boxes. If you’ve seen my plan with me posts you’ll know I use these to mark which room I want to deep clean on each day, unfortunately when I received them they were smaller than what I thought they were going to be but that’s ok I’ll make them work and if not I’ll past them on to my mum whose just started planning. These cost £2.50 for 48 and postage was only £0.99p

Next is SweetPlannerDesigns ran by Laura. I order two sheets of functional stickers and a month spread kit which when I received it the size was wrong so Laura is sending me a replacement. The functional sheets are Instagram boxes (£2.00) and meal planning boxes (£2.00)to put in my little things section, the month kit is so gorgeous and I think the colours look perfect for April which was only £3.00. Postage for all these was £2.50.

Also made another order with OodlemaDoodles ran by Grace. I ordered some more blank MDN headers in the colour pink to use as little things boxes if a kit doesn’t come with them, these cost £2.39. Also I got the decorative boxes for her spring tulips kit which cost £2.20. Postage on all of this was £0.90.

Finally I placed an order with ItsonlymeCaralee ran by Caralee. I ordered two functional sheets and one weekly kit. The two functional sheets I ordered was some half boxes £1.00 and some weekend banners £2.00. I really love the weekly kit as soon as she posted a picture on Facebook I knew I had to have it so I added it to my cart ready for pay day. The kit is her flamingo kit and its absolutely gorgeous and it only cost £3.00. Postage for all of these was £1.75.

Birthday haul

Hey loves! I’m so excited to share with you all the stuff I got for my birthday. Some of this stuff I pick out over a month ago but mum said I wasn’t aloud any of it until my birthday. All the stuff shown is from my mum, step dad, grandad and my two daughters. Rest of family that gave me money I’m spending today, my partner gave me money which went on etsy stickers. I’ve spilt this up into categories so lets start with washi tape.

International etsy shop feature (Linouspots)

*Disclaimer, I did get this stickers for free but they were purchased with shop credit from a giveaway prize I won. All links will be at the bottom.

Hey loves. I thought I would show you stickers I got through a giveaway a few weeks ago hosed by EllieBethDesignsUK. The stickers are from Linouspots on etsy which is ran by Linous in Switzerland and after seeing the price of her postage it got me thinking about starting a new series on my blog showing international etsy sellers who have cheap postage to the UK. Reason I came up with this idea was because I’m always seeing people in planner groups on Facebook saying that international sellers have expensive postage but that isn’t always the case, there are some cheap ones out there.

So lets start this new series with Linouspots. The seller Linous has wonderful stickers and what makes them so unique is that they are hand drawn with watercolour. She sells kits and functional stickers which are all matt which is great, with these being watercolour I don’t think they would look right on glossy. With the shop credit I picked a kit and a sheet of functional/decorative stickers.

This kit is so lovley and because there is that many stickers in it you could make two spreads out of it. I don’t think I’ll be able to use this kit until winter now because the colours just make it look so wintery.

Functional kit I chose was this sheet of gorgeous coffee cups and cupcake which will be great to mark when I go to meet my mum.

I also received this free sheet full of functional stickers.

So on to prices which range from £0.99 to £17.00 for the full kit like I had. Postage is £2.88 which I think is brilliant. Just to show there are some international sellers out there who have cheap postage.

Day designer review

*Disclaimer, I was sent this planner for free in exchange for a review. This has not affected my views or opinions these are all my own.

Hey loves! I’m so excited to do this review because this planner is gorgeous and would like to say thank you to day designer for kindly sending it to me.

Let start with packaging, it come in three boxes. A normal brown box, a white box then a lovely bright pink box that opens like a drawer. Inside the pink box the planner is wrapped in bubble wrap.

When taking the planner out of the packaging it is a bit heavy but that can be expected with it being a 12 month planner full of daily pages, monthly views, dividers and goal pages.

The front and back covers are very thick and have this lovely black and white stripe pattern with gold writing. There is metal covers on the corners as well as a gold spiral for the spine. I love how simple but elegant these planner looks.

On the inside cover there is a pink pocket that could be used to store documents or anything that you need to store in it.

So going through the planner the first page is blank which can be taken out if you want. Following this there is a page for you to write your details.

There are quite a few pages for marking down personal goals. For me personally I won’t be using them but they would be great if your someone who sets themselves goals throughout the year.

Going on to the calendar pages it starts with the month and every month has a gorgeous gold tab. Each day has its own boxes and the is a section at the side to write down reminders for that month.

After your monthly view there are the daily pages. The one thing I like about these is that there is a quote at the top of each page. As you can guess with this being a daily planner the column is broke down into hours from 7am-7pm. The column next to that is a to do list there is also a top 3 section at the top of the page. Next to that is four boxes, Dollars, Due, Dinner and Don’t forget. At the very bottom of the page the is a space for daily gratitude.

I love this planner and I’m enjoying using it as well, it’s helping me keep on track with everything. I’m using this along size my happy planner and the two together are working out great.

Etsy shop feature (SmallStuffCreations)

*Disclaimer two of these sheets were paid for by me and the other two were free for doing a review last month.

Hey loves! I have another etsy shop feature for you and it’s kind of an update as well. Last month I did a post about an upcoming etsy shop for SmallStuffCreations ran by Ashley-Janne which you can see here. So I thought I would make a purchase and update you on her stop.

The stickers I ordered were planner stickers to mark when I need to plan out my week and envelop stickers to mark when I’ve got mail coming in. These stickers were £0.80 each and £0.80 postage which I think is great for the quality of these stickers.

IMG_0030

The two free sheets I picked were meal planning stickers and TV stickers. I love the size of these stickers they will be great if I have a sticker kit that doesn’t come with little things boxes because I could just add these on top of a blank header. Ashley-Janne has a whole range of stickers, they are all this size and there is 25 on a sheet you can pick for pastel or bright. I will definitely be making a purchase again because these aren’t  just nice on a weekly spread they are perfect for the month view as well.
