Planner Decorating Tips

Erin Condron

Need Planner Decorating Tips?

If you’re new to the planning community, all the planner decorating talk can be overwhelming. Do I decorate? How do I decorate? What do I need to decorate my planner? These are questions that the newbie planner struggles with. Let’s take them one at a time and then I’ll provide my Top 10 Planner Decorating Tips..

To decorate or not to decorate?

This is a question only you can answer. Decorating is not necessary but it certainly adds interest. I enjoy decorating my planner. It keeps me engaged with the planner and I check it regularly. How much time I spend decorating depends on how much time I have to spend. It varies. Why do I decorate? I used to be a scrapbooking queen. Decorating my planner allows me to scratch my scrapbooking itch. If you don’t have a scrapbooking itch, don’t scratch it. Or, if you want to decorate but just want simple, minimalistic layouts, that’s okay too.

How do I Decorate?

Once you’ve made the decision to decorate your planner, I recommend that you watch a few Plan with Me videos on YouTube. Watch at least three different planner channels. This allows you to see different decorating styles and you can get a feel for what you like and don’t like. Be sure to include Plan with Me at Makeup on Aisle 64 as part of your watch list. You can see how my style has evolved and I give some great planner decorating tips.

What Do I Need?

Don’t run out and buy everything you saw on the Plan with Me videos.  You’ll end up buying things you don’t need, don’t use, or discover you don’t like.   Here’s a basic supply list.

Planner Decorating Tips at Makeup on Aisle 64 - Pilot G2 in BlackPens and Pencils

  • Pilot G-2 pens in black for writing in planner. The ink dries quickly and it doesn’t bleed through or show on the other side of the paper.
  • Sharpie colored pen set, fine or medium point (optional). You’ll use these for writing or decorating.
  • You can choose regular pencils or mechanical pencils.  I prefer mechanical pencils because these are always sharp.  Planner Decorating Tips at Makeup on Aisle 64 - Sharpied Colored Pen Set

Adhesive

  • Glue sticks. The Elmer Craft Bond glue stick or the Mini-Collage Glue Stick from Ranger work well.  These allow you to reposition elements if you do so in a short period of time.
  • Zag glue pen. A glue pen is good to have if you need to adhere something “tricky”  or catch a corner or an edge.
  • Adhesive rollers are optional but can prove useful.

Corrector tape or fluidPlanner Decorating Tips at Makeup on Aisle 64 - Bic Wite Out

  • I’ve got Bic Wite Out but any corrector tape should work.

Planner Decorating Tips at Makeup on Aisle 64 - CutterbeeScissors

  • Small pair for precision cutting. I like the Precision Tip Honeybee Scissors by EK Success.
  • A larger pair for cutting papers and other stuff.

 

Planner Decorating Tips at Makeup on Aisle 64 - Tweezor beeCraft tweezers

  • I like the Tweezerbee by EK Success. These are very sharp and very useful in positioning embellishments.

 

Function Stickers

  • Function stickers are a must. Use these to help you mark your calendar for anything you want to remember.
  • To Do.   Noted.  Call.   Appointment.  Date Night.  Movie.  Game Night. Meeting.
  • The Happy Planner collection offers some great functional stickers. These fit nicely in many styles of planners.  Or, go on Etsy.  Lots of Etsy shops sell stickers sized for many of the more popular planners.

Decorative Stickers 

  • Even decorative stickers can serve a function. Get some for events or activities that you have frequently.  I use cupcakes to mark birthdays.  Wedding cake stickers mark weddings and Doc McStuffin stickers mark doctor appointments.
  • Don’t buy too many stickers at once. Buy one or two themed sets and practice with them.  Create two or three layouts trying different techniques.  See what you like and how you like it.  Once you get a feel for what you like, buy more stickers.

Planner Decorating Tips at Makeup on Aisle 64 -Washi TpeWashi tapes

  • Washi tape is a matter of preference. Start out with one or two rolls in colors that you love or that match your themed sticker set.
  • I’ve been decorating my planner for about a year and I still don’t use a lot of washi.
  • A small ruler, old credit card, hotel key card — any kind of straight edge will do. These work well to cut washi tape.

Sticky Notes

  • Many planners use sticky notes for a variety of functions in their planners. I suggest buying a small set to see if this is something you might enjoy using.

Planner Supply Bag Planner Decorating Tips at Makep on Aisle 64 -Sonia Kashuk Art of Beauty Face Print Cosmetic Bag

  • You’ll need something to store your planner supplies in. You can start with a small box or you can purchase a bag.  The important thing is to keep your supplies together and out of reach of “little hands.”
  • Cosmetic bags work great for storing planner decorating supplies. I bought a Sonia Kashuk Weekender.  It holds my planner, my tools, and my decorating supplies.  It cost about $30 but you can find similar items for less.

Favorite planner decorating supplies. Best planner decorating tips.

These are all the things you really need to start decorating in your planner. If you’re a planning minimalist, you’ll need less. If you’re not sure, start with these things and expand as your planning style evolves. Just remember there is no right or wrong way to do it. What’s right is what works for you.

What do I use?

In 2015, I fell in love with the Erin Condren Life Planner.  The layouts you see are from that one.  2016 will see me enjoying two new calendars — the Inkwell Press Watercolor Hexagon and the Get to Work Book.  I know.  I’ve got a problem!  But — I plan to decorate in my Watercolor Hexagon.  I’m using the Get to Work Book strictly for organizing projects.  No decorating will be involved.
