Purchase Site: Michael’s [in person]
Reason: To pimp my planner!
Last month I got the Trillia Planning box, and didn’t really find much excitement in it. I have an At-a-glance calendar, and not a cute little planner that Etsy sellers make amazing sticker packs for. So, after deciding planner packs weren’t for me, but that I really liked one page in particular of my package I decided to seek out the company it came from.
Me & My Big Ideas sells planner and scrapbook stuff. I located the sticker pack the page came from and it was 30 pages with 1,000 stickers for $19.99! Less than the box I bought, with a crapton of stickers. Unfortunately shipping was $7 :/ Amazon was the same with $5 shipping, which makes no sense because this item could ship in a flat envelope for <$2.
Next plan? See if Michael’s or Jo-Ann’s had it. I was in luck! I found it at Michael’s for $19.99 and with my 50% off coupon I paid $10. It wasn’t the color coordinated set, but instead a holiday set with 1,557 stickers.
Sadly, there are no Leif Erikson Day or Rosh Hashanah stickers. Also, summer isn’t a holiday. So, clearly not a legit holiday pack.
Friday I sat in on a class to listen to their research project topics, so I brought my planner and sticker pack and pimped my planner!

Tiny ant sticker! I wanted to show here that some sheets are clear stickers vs the paper stickers below.
I try to put some to-do list checkmarks on each week [I just use the weekend section for that].
Here is my week completely decorated! I had a lot of fun doing this, but there are sooo many stickers to use so I’ll definitely have more for next year =)
Now I’m going to end with a picture of my really cool sunflower that is blooming now!
Verdict: While I did really love the Etsy pages, I just don’t have the scrapbooking dedication to do that monthly. This was a one time purchase and I’ll be good for at least two years with this pack! Thanks to Susie as well who mentioned she did the same =) The only downside to this pack is that it is staaanky! I think it’s the adhesive, but bleh.
What do you think? Are you an Erin Condren (EC), Happy Planner, bargain-bin-planner, smart phone calendar, or a not-at-all planner?
Disclosure: I purchased this item with my own money and a Michael’s coupon.
