Sticker Collection | Coffee Break Planner

This is the binder whoa. Sorry about that. This is a binder I have been using for quite a while. It is a very thick binder that I got on Amazon. I think it’s an Avery binder. I will link it down below if y’all are interested but anyways. I did a article not too long ago, showing my sticker organization as to how I put this together.

I will link that article up in a cart if y’all are interested but anyways. I have my little coffee break planner thing that I made over here and yeah. So, let’s just like get right into it. I do have these categorized by like category obviously a categorized by category way to go Emily way to use the word. I’m just a wordsmith today, but I have lots of different things to share. The first category is my event: category, which is my favorite category, because it’s got my favorite stickers in there so yeah.

So, let’s just kind of like flip through it and then we’ll just go from there. She’s got lots of really great scalloped box stickers, which are one of my favorite things. I’ve got a lot of duplicates just FYI and then I’ve got some things as well. So I know that some of her stickers are formatted for specific planners, and then some of them are just like the way that they are so sometimes when you go onto her Etsy shop.

It’ll, like give a little drop-down and say, like you, know, ask what planner ur like what orientation of a planner that you’re using and all that good stuff, so yeah. But I just like love her stuff, it’s so nice. It sounds like holographic, it’s really cool yeah and then this one, this one’s silver. So these are like assam. My favourite stickers are these little scalloped ones and she just released new colors.

I did flip through a couple of the new colors, but there’s some new ones for fall so feel free to go check that out. If you interested, but yes, it’s my first category just because it makes the most sense and then I’ve got half boxes right here. Oh, I only have two left on this one. I want to use this one up, so I’ve got some half boxes. I got some like military-inspired ones and then I’ve got a bunch of other ones which these are really nice as well, more military but yeah.

I just you know I just love her stuff, so much and this type of sticker is just like, so my jam like it’s just ah, you know I love a good. I love a good half box, a good functional anything, and I like that. Some of these have like a little bit of something to them without being like overly, you know, aggressive or whatever. These are my full boxes, but I only have one sheet of full boxes, so the full boxes is kind of, like my catch-all for other weird things.

They’re, not weird they’re, just different, you know, and I don’t have a place for them so when Katherine sends out orders, at least in my orders. She’s always put in these really cute little samplers, which is kind of Awesome, and then also I have a bunch of transparent dots, so I’ve got them in some of the colors. So this is the green and then I also have like some of the rainbow ones. I have some of the red ones and more of the rainbows as well, but I absolutely love the transparent dots, oh and I should say well now: okay, let’s get into the flag story all over the paper that she uses is matte, which I love a good Matte paper, so here’s all the flags that I’m showing today um.

But I love the matte paper. I don’t know what it is, but it’s like something about the way that the pen or the marker or whatever you’re, using like kind of soaks into the paper, and I know it’s like satisfying to me – it’s like very satisfying. Actually, what is going to say is that she uses matte removable paper. So if you mess up – and you like – lay it down on your planner – it’s okay, because you can easily like lift it up, which is kind of Awesome.

So, anyway, here’s all her scripted words that I have she’s got several more scripted words that, like don’t pertain to me in my life, so I don’t order those ones, but I’ve gone through several of these. Like look, I’m almost done with these work ones. I’ve used a bunch on this sheet too, like I forget what I have sometimes it’s just kind of the nature of the beast: with look having a youtube blog that does planning now you kind of forget what you have, and I didn’t have these like really nicely Organized for a long long time, so it took me quite a while to figure out a system that you know worked for me.

But since I did this, I’ve just been like loving the way that it all looks. And then I’ve got my work stickers, which is pretty awesome. I’ve got lots of fun things in here, so I’ve got some desks more desks. There’s lots of like versions of desks cute little calculators, we’ve gotten like a couple of those which is awesome and it’s getting like really really cold in Minnesota now. So this is kind of how I feel right now as like a little snowman, even though it’s not snowing yet.

I shouldn’t have said that s word now: it’s going to start snowing, darn, it okay and then yeah. I got lots of different, really fun ones. This reminds me I need to start. My office is almost actually redone, you guys it’s it’s like really getting there, but I need to do a file organization on all my files, but I’m going to do a article about it too, because I know you guys have been asking for that.

I just haven’t. Had like a good opportunity to do it and I actually bought a file cabinet from Ikea. So I’m very very excited about that to share like how I’m going to be organizing it and it’s like three full drawers of emptiness right now, but that’s very exciting. For me to get organized and I haven’t gone through stuff in like a really long time, so I know you guys think I’m super organized, but sometimes the fge is not as organized as you think she is so.

I think we’re all like that. But anyway, these are one of my new favorite stickers too. They just came out or she just came out with these not too long ago. Maybe a couple months back and it’s like a little shelf that has planners and then it has like a little pen cup that says CBP on it, which is really cute for coffee break planner, and I think this is so nice. If you want to like indicate like planning time or like a meet-up or something just really really stinking cute, so that’s my work category here is my home category.

So, basically, anything that has to do with the house so laundry, which I have to do laundry I’m going to do laundry tomorrow, um. I also have these like road trip. Looking ones. I’ve got some trash cans and musical notes. More laundry. I’ve got some like shopping bags. These are like little baby laundry’s like look at these, oh they’re, so cute right, that’s really cute. Yes, she’s got a couple different sizes of things so and then I also have these really cute makeup brush like cleaning things and then more trash things, some gifts more trash.

I love a good trash guys. I’d love a good trash. I also have some beds for like when you want to like change your sheets or like redo your bedding or whatever. These home stickers are like one of my favorite things, they’re so flippin and cute, and then these are awesome as well. These cute little shelves and then the really fun thing is. You can put something like inside of the picture frame if you want, if you want to like draw a little something which is really really cute, and she put in some of these, so you can see like it’s like doyle, like my dogs like silhouette, and then She put my logo and the other ones which are super stinkin cute, Oh see, I used a bunch of the house once already and these are the clean me little brushes again and then also some trash ones ooh in the plant stickers, oh and then I also Have these really cute little books, if you guys have been following me for a while, I have some like really amazing news.

So if you guys read my blog, this will make a lot more sense, so my mom actually just left today, like the day, I’m filming this. She just left to go back to Florida, but every year, like my mom and dad’s summer in Minnesota, and then they have their full-time residents in Florida, but this year she got rid of the damn plant, I’m so excited. I do not know how to take care of the plan. It’s so exciting to me.

Oh I’m excited so I probably won’t be using those plant things anytime soon, but I just wanted to let you know I had them still all right. So this is my food category. These are one of my favorite things, these little like market boxes like oh they’re, so cute, and then I’ve got some like little paper bags for like bringing lunch to work and stuff. I’ve also got these cute little cutlery wands. Oh, I’ve got more of these guys more cutlery.

More of these kind see I they’re my favorite there’s really cute little food trucks, which I wish I lived or like worked really close to a place. I had food trucks because I think food trucks are kind of awesome, so but yeah, and then these cute little crock pots, which are kind of fun. I don’t do like a ton of crock pot things I feel like I should. I need to like go on. Pinterest or something, and then I’ve got these cute little like coffee guys, which sometimes I like go to a coffee place or something to like, hang out with a friend or just like, go there, while my like oils being changed in my car or something I mean, I don’t drink coffee cuz, I can’t handle it, but you know I’ll get like a smoothie or like a tea or something or just have something else, and then these are really cute little mugs that have like a little colorful insides.

You know if you want to denote anything like that. Alright and then my next category is animals, so we’ve got like little paw prints for like your little kitty or your puppy or whoever these are really cute. They are like little stethoscopes and inside, like the little turn of the stethoscope, is a little paw print as well, and then I have these really random cows, and I think I ordered them for something that I like can’t remember for the life of me.

What I ordered them for so they’re, just in the air, I cannot recall um, but she’s got a lot of really fun stuff on her website. I love them. I think they’re great, but I’m like what did I? What was I going to use that for, and I think I forgot – I don’t know – uh previous Emily – I don’t know what was going on with her here. Is my sports categories or like athletics categories, so I’ve got a bunch of tennis shoes.

I also have a bunch of little like itty-bitty footballs, and then here I have some of their racetrack stuff, which is like more NASCAR inspired. I am into NASCAR. I haven’t readed it in a really long time because my favorite dry driver Dale jr., he retired this past year, so I haven’t really been like catching up with it. This year is like, I think, he retired at the end of 2016 – oh no, sorry, 2017, and so this year I just haven’t been into it, but I feel like I need to read it more, but anyway more footballs and then I also have.

I think I have a full collection, yeah of the race stickers and then more footballs, and you probably wondering why do you have so many footballs? And I think I was going to do something in my planner and then I forget, I don’t know I forget a lot of things, your guy, but now I have them. So if something comes up where I’m at a sporting event, I can put them in all right and then the next category is health.

So I have these little really cute little like pads that have like a little heart in them to like track your cycle, and then these are just kind of similar to the dog ones or the cat ones like the little vet ones. So you have like a little stethoscope, but then this has like the little cross in it, so I’ve actually gone through a couple of sheets of these, and I have oh, I have. I have several of them: okay, cool, but I have gone through a few sheets of these, so yeah, but I love those they’re nice I mean if you’re sick, it sucks being sick anyway is a, but it is nice when you can actually put something.

That’s really cute in your planner oops, alright and then these are the seasonal ones that I have of hers. So it’s like seasons and other like random things in here. So I have a bunch of these like carnival ones which to me is seasonal, because it just reminds me of a State Fair. I also have these little trees, which are super cute. You could use them really for anything, but I just thought that they would be good in the seasonal.

Also, these s’mores and campfires to me is seasonal. I don’t, but it just it just works with me. Also, these little banners kind of remind me of birthday banners. So that’s why it’s in the seasonal and then the little school bus is also a seasonal to me, because that’s how my brain works and yeah. So, let’s put those to the side. I’ve got these really cute little full boxes that are, you know, kind of more fall themed.

These are more summery themed with like little sailboats and things like that, and then these I think she came out with last year yeah. I think these two she came out with last year, which are really cute. I still haven’t used them. I just haven’t found like a good spread to use them in, but they’re like these little vintage houses and like they’re kind of like little washy strips, which is really cute, and then I also have these really cute little date covers and st.

Patrick’s boxes holiday boxes. This is like a new holiday set that she has for this year. I don’t know, maybe it’s new to me, but I love the muted colors. I think it’s so pretty, but yeah be like perfect, for you know if you want to like decorate or or like when you’re decorating, to be like Oh decorate, the house – or I don’t know whatever – and this is like totally me – baby, it’s cold outside yep.

That’s kind of how Minnesota is and then oh here’s another little collection that she has for this. I don’t know if it’s this year that she came up with this or maybe it’s left over from last year. I don’t know, but it’s really cute, but it’s like so me. I like love this little one that says Happy Holidays right there, that’s, like kind of my aesthetic and my jam’ are like these colors. So that was really nice and then I love these ones and this so stinkin cute and then also she’s got this other one in the bigger one that just as Happy Holidays with the tree, which I think is really nice.

I mean I like all of them, but you know if you want to be a little bit more neutral. That is, you know of a way to do it. Alright, so those are put back so yeah. I have seasonal health, sports, animal food, poem, work, script, words, flags, full boxes, and then I have my like miscellaneous in there. My half boxes and event stick.

The 2019 Ashley Shelly Planner | First Impressions

This is Ashley Shelley planner or the Ashley Shelley planner. I should say I have done a article on the Ashley Shelley planner. I think it was last year if I can find that article I’ll, throw it up in a card for you guys but um they reached out because they are doing their launch, which is happening this Friday.

I believe I’m going to put this article up on Saturday. Cuz, I’m not really sure what time on Friday that this launch is happening. So you guys know me, I pre filmed the things, so, let’s open up the box and then I’ll tell you a little bit more about the planner. So mine came in this really nice white box and I like unsealed it, but I hadn’t opened it yet. So, let’s see here, I have a business card, create your best days cool.

I have a little note here and it just says Emily. Thank you. So much for checking out the 2019 Ashley Shelley planner. We can’t wait to hear what you think feel free to share your coat Emily 5 for a $ 5 off a signature 2019 planner – and it says the code expires on the 31st of December. So I will leave the information down below for you guys too. In case you didn’t write it down or you’re. You know, reading on the go or whatever so anyways comes in this nice purple, a packaging, little tissue paper, ooh, mmm, mmm, sour patch, kids, alright cool! Like that, it comes in this little bubble, wrap and then it has a little card that says create your best days and then just has like the hashtags and where you can find them on Instagram.

So let me pull this out and then we’ll talk more all right. So this comes in like a cell, oh bag thing just opened come on out, come on out there we go cool alright. So let me give you some information about the planner before I open it, so the standard price for the signature, Ashley Shelley planner – will be $ 44.95. But if you use that five dollar off coupon code it’ll put it down to 39.95 and that is good until the end of the year.

So that’s pretty awesome. It looks like last year their prices were forty, nine. Ninety five, so they have decrease the price which is kind of nice. As for scale, I have a seven by nine Erin Condren planner that I use on the regular it’s a little bit bigger or like my Erin Condren is a little bit bigger. I should say so: I have my cover. You can see the difference like you know, they’re and contouring is a little bit different there.

So the pages are just a little bit more narrow, but it’s the same same height. So, no it’s nine inches by probably six six and a half something like that, so very comparable to the you know: Erin Condren size. So anyway, when they reached out, they showed me their designs for 2019. So I picked this design and this design is called the chambray stripe so um I will show you guys mmm it’s going to be hard to see hold on.

Let’s see if I can like see it properly here we go Wow. Actually, let me put this down and then all sue me all in. I always gets funky when I try to show my screen so anyway. This is the chambray stripe. The aqua herringbone marble stripe painted floral rose gold, so the coil is rose gold and then the painted floral and the silver. So I know these have been like you know. I think these ones were last year too, or something similar to that.

So it might be like one or more of their signature looks, but I thought the chambray stripe looked kind of nice. So I figured why not go with that one and it’s kind of like more of a like a dark, denim color and it looks like it’s black like the stripes look like they’re black, they might be like a super dark indigo, I’m not sure so anyway. This comes with a silver coil, it has like a teal 2019 on it, and then it has the corners which I love.

Oh it’s kind of off camera. Sorry, it has the hard corners which I love. It has the bound in cover. So you know nice and sturdy, then you open it up ooh. This is nice, it has a little pocket, so you can put stickers or you know. If you put your bills in there, you have postcards or something like that or invitations or whatever you can put that in there all right and then whoa all right. So we’ve got a plastic pouch, it’s not movable, however, you could kind of slice it.

If you wanted to and move it around, it’s kind of up to you so and then inside of here it’s like a little sealed pocket here. Okay, it’s just the one sticker of icons, all right, I’m not going to take it out just because just one sticker! So but yeah, it’s all the Ashley Shelley colors, which is kind of nice. So it’s just got some different things on there. So yeah kind of cool all right. Let’s turn the page and then it says this planner it belongs to, and then it has the Ashley Shelley stuff and that’s from January 2019.

Third December of 2019 and it’s got a little perforated edges, I want to say they had those last year. Maybe I can’t remember, but I think they had those last year anyway. So then there’s some information from Ashley Shelley and she just gives you some planner tips, which is kind of awesome and then on this side is kind of just a nice blank page for an inspiration board, which I kind of like, because you know me, I don’t.

I mean I like structure. I just don’t like a lot of structure, so that’s kind of nice, you could, you know, like it says, write, draw and tape all of the inspiration here for your year ahead. It’s so true! So if you’ve got, you know, goals and the goal setting things like that, put it in there or use it for something totally different. So next page there is important contacts with some lines: favorite meal ideas, breakfast dinners and lunches.

I like that, that’s kind of nice. You know or things that were like a hit at your house or something like that all right next page, these are kind of reminiscent of the Erin Condren boxes, but this is a little bit more structure just because it has the months on there. So it’s a 2019 planning overview and I kind of like this – it’s kind of nice. I know a lot of people use like in the Erin Condren ones.

They have these boxes in the of the planner too, before you get into the months and a lot of people use them for basically the same thing like a monthly overview, but this would be easily enough covered up with a sticker or some washi or even just Like whiteout tape, if you wanted to use it for something else, you could just use all of these boxes for something else too. So yeah it’s still versatile with still giving you some structure if that makes sense, so the yearly overview you’ve got 2019 also 2020, which is nice.

I love to have a 2020 or like the next full calendar year in that planner. If that makes sense, because sometimes you’re scheduling, vacations or you’re kind of like grand scheme, looking at things of like okay, that one week there’s this conference in Orlando and we want to go – and it’s always the second week in September or whatever so you’re kind of, Like planning things and just kind of like general forecasting for the next year, so I always really like that.

Now it has all the 2019 holidays will not all of them, but some of them. So we’ve got that and then we get into January all right. So all the paper has been the same, except for the ones that have the tabs are very thick like, like a nice, thick cardstock. Alright. So here is the January 2019 layout. It’s actually really nice. So they’re not perfect boxes, they’re more like rectangles, and they have little lines on them they are.

Are they dotted? They kind of look like they’re like dotted a little bit very reminiscent of just like lined paper from a notebook, it’s kind of what it looks like. So it’s very faint, but if you do want to write like say you want to like write a list of something you could definitely kind of use that as a guideline which is nice. Also, I’m loving that it has last month’s monthly view, as well as the next month’s monthly view on here as well.

That’s really nice! Again with that forecasting or paydays or like whatever you’re looking forward to it’s like okay, yeah, okay, then yeah the 15th will work. But you know I’m out of town on the 22nd or you know like you, can just kind of like talk about that stuff and like see it visually. That really helps me on the left-hand side. Also, there are notes, and then there are some of those holidays that are put up at the very, very top in a very faint purple, writing as well and then into the months.

So here’s the first page in January, it says, create the life you love in January and that’s just it looks kind of more like a vision, board kind of a thing. I know that they do this. What did I just review? An inkwell press planner? I did like a first impressions on as well, so it’s different, but it’s kind of the similar idea. So like goal setting things that you could change for next month, you know all that kind of stuff, and it looks like I mean I’m just kind of reading over some of these.

It looks like these could be modifiable a little bit too or you don’t necessarily have to use this page to if it’s just like not your jam kind of cool, something different and then okay. So this is a notes page, but it’s two columns and then here’s a notes, page that is just all aligned and then we get into this alright. So we’ve got a daily planner, but it’s you know a week on two pages, so the very top.

We have a note section, your monthly word, which I believe you can put in right over here. So your your word of the month and then then it has all these like little colons. So you can put like what you’re doing at specific times to say you work at 7:00 a.M. You can just put 7:00 a.M. Work or you can put 7:00 a.M. To 3:00 p.M. Work. If you really want to do that and it’s got a bunch of lines and then a to-do list and then it says, do today and then dinner, so that’s kind of nice and then over to the right-hand side.

There are listed holidays so like the 31st is New Year’s Eve and the first is New Year’s Day and then all of them are exactly the same as the others, but let’s get into looking at some more all right here. So here is the next page and yeah everything looks exactly the same if you guys readed my what was it my ankle press planner, like my mock, horizontal, which this is actually kind of a horizontal orientation, but I could get more on board with this one, just Because it’s more of a list of times and other lines, so you really wouldn’t necessarily have to use this four times.

If you didn’t want to, you could write very easily shopping or whatever and then like put where you’re going or if there’s specific things you have to do, there’s also a to-do list. So I like that. It’s like a column kind of because my brain works in this way and it doesn’t work in this way. But I did that Mach plan with me and even my mom was laughing at me because she’s like oh Emily, that was so horrible.

I’m, like I know, she’s like, but it was really funny. I’m like well thanks, um I’ll link that up in a card, if you guys want to read me struggle doing a horizontal, but this I think you could, if you were a horizontal person or if you were a vertical person, I feel like this could work for You with this layout cuz, it is, you know, column E and that’s not even a word. What am I talking about anyway, but yeah? So this is the month and then we are now in two of February and so all the months are going to look the same, but let’s go in the back because sometimes there’s other accoutrements in the back.

You just you never know. So let’s take a peek and see okay, so we’re at an hour and alright. So now we’re into the last page of the month, which is December 30th through January 5. Alright and then we’ve got some notes: pages tada, alright, so we have little notes pages with. You know hearts on them. So let’s say one: two, three, four oops: five, six, eight, nine ten! Alright, so you get ten notes pages that are just there for you, which is kind of Awesome and then on the back.

It just has more information about Ashley Shelley and then in the back over here it’s got still the same hard like the hard board. It’s not cardboard, but it’s you know like a solid permanent cover. I can’t talk today. You guys I just like worked all day and got my oil changed just like. I can’t adult and human right now. No, but yeah. It’s like a really really nice, very, very sturdy. It’s like a nice gloss on it too, so I feel like if you spilled something even you wiped it up super super quick.

It would be alright, I mean clearly if you left something it probably wouldn’t be. The best but yeah it’s very smooth like very smooth feeling, and it’s like kind of glassy. I don’t know if you guys can see that, but it is kind of glassy and then this is what the back looks. Like still has the reinforced corners. Sorry, I’m not in the frame whoops and then has the Ashley Shelley logo on the back as well so yeah that is a sneaky sneaky little peek inside of the Ashley Shelley 2019 planner.
