Planner Stickers & Washi Haul

I ended up purchasing a lot of things on a Black Friday Cyber Monday, and this is all planner related things, so I’ve got washi and stickers galore. This is going up a little bit later because number one I’m lazy and then number two all of the independent shops clearly have different shipping schedule times and things like that, so I’ve been kind of like collecting them as they’ve been coming through and I actually just Realized a few weeks after the last thing came in that I’m like oh, I think I have everything so anyways, let’s just get on with the haul, I will link down below all of the shops that I talked about so yeah.

So, let’s get to it. First thing I have over here is some washi, and this is from goat girl on Etsy and I’m kind of obsessed with these. Let’s see oh, we need to. We need to zoom in a little bit hold off. Oh, it’s rolling off come back here! Oh here we go so anyway um. I have this. It’s just kind of like wintery houses, which is really cute. I’ve got this really tall washi and it’s like holographic with sleighs and deer snowflakes, all that good stuff.

So I think that one’s really fun and then I’ve got these. This one is like icicles like dripping icicles that are glitter and they have like a backing to them. So I’m not going to take it out, but I just thought this one’s really darn pretty and then these ones are just kind of fun, they’re, just kind of like these geometric shapes and this one’s kind of like in a blue and silver colorway. And then this one is just more of a like kind of pinkish peach colorway with the silver so anyway, that is all the stuff I got at go girl and I think it’s called a goat girl, good or something I don’t know I’ll put it down below.

Speaking of washy um, one of my favorite shops out, there is simply gilded, and these are all the fun things I got from her shop. So I got these. I believe that these ones came as a set and they’re not metallic at all. I don’t see any like metallic reflection, but these are just for like the seven seven millimeter and it’s just you know, the little dots very cute definitely will end up using it at at some point and then I also got the two the set of two.

So these come as a set. This one comes as a set, and then these are the like animal print and the black and gold, and then this one is the white and gold. Animal print thought that these were really darn cute and you know my neutral, loving heart loves that and then I also got this.

If you want to possibly win this at some point so anyway, but I’m very excited about this one, let’s see if it will focus it’s very light.

So it’s kind of difficult to see, but it’s just so darn pretty and also I got some stuff from wanton in a million. I love her stuff and she also has washi that I got. I have been in kind of eye these two for a little while she’s had them in her shop, and I thought that they were so darn pretty it’s just kind of a like pink to white gradient with some. You know little dots on them, so I thought those are really cute and because of the sale I just wanted to pick those up.

I also thought this was fun. I don’t know all of her like character names very well, but this it’s like the little guy, with the top hat a little tuxedo and a rose super cute, so anyways got those and then also I got just some sticker sheets, so I got Pizza sticker sheet.

Oh, this is Suey okay, so this is the Suey on here too. So anyway, but yeah. I’ve had a lot of medical appointments and stuff, so I figured some of those medical ones would be great, you’re, going to see more medical things coming up in this hall and then next I’ve got kind of being like one of my new favorite shops is called Lulu’s daisies and company, and then I just like her script, her script just look really cool, so I have this one that says surgery day.

I’ve got another one that says taxes which is great because I always have to spend a few days and prep my taxes. I have another one here that says renew tags, so you know when you had to do that for your vehicle. I’ve got another one says monthly budget family dinner, which is super cute, pre-op appointment, urgent care, doctor’s appointment, snow day, which I love. I mean I don’t love a snow day, but you know super cute.

This one just says blood work on it and then also home repair. This one says girls night, which is fun, hair appointment and, let’s see up for drinks and then ER visit. So yeah I mean obviously a lot of medical things. Like I said before, but um I am very excited to use some of those and then it also got some stuff from a shop called your world of color, and this was an international one. I believe so.

I’ve got like some little hospitals. There is some like antibiotic medication things, there’s some booze, because hello, I’ve got some like little nail clippers. I’ve got this one that says it’s cold because I’m in Minnesota and it’s cold um. This one is like some medicine cabinets which I thought were really cute. This one says eat leftovers, this one again migraine. I get those a lot, unfortunately, and then this is just like a little x-ray guy, so I thought those were kinda good and next up we have my friend Rebecca from Adriana Piper.

I’ve got some of these like racing and like blue-ribbon stickers, which I thought were really cute. I got these sofas, which are kind of fun this one like these hot dogs, it’s thought they were really fun and also in the like summertime at the office. We actually do cookouts quite often, and I’m part of the like team that organizes some of that, and then I have this little strip of like wintery houses, also love her little camera icons, they’re, just so darn cute.

So I wanted to stock up on those, and then I got a couple of sheets from Lisa V creations. I got two sheets of her backpacks because I just thought that’d be nice too, like if you need to pack your backpack for something or whatever, just like cute little icons, and so I got them and like this is kind of like the more the pastel color Way and then this one is kind of a little bit more bold, but I liked in both and then also I got some wine and cocktail ones.

Clearly, you can see a pattern with my purchases over here. Oh my goodness, sorry. So next up we have planner mint. I got some like little Hospital stickers or like just clinic stickers. I also got this. It says work from home with a little laptop, which I thought was really cute and a bunch of different colors and then also this one that says girls night with like a little margarita glass and a bunch of colors.

So love that and then my girl Aaron over a small-town grace. I’ve got a few of few sheets from her sale and it says this one is hilarious, says check yourself before you wreck yourself, like wrecks like t-rex. I just thought it was really funny and then these are just some kind of like cabanne stickers, which I thought were really cute and then here we’ve got some like glitter a half box situation.

So anyway, thought those are really cute from small town grace and then let me um need to in need to adjust myself all right. I got some Christian designs, but I need to like zoom out a little bit now, because my sheets of paper are bigger. All right, so I got a bunch of things from Christian designs, you’re, going to see a big theme that I just ended up getting a lot of things in different colorways, so anyways I got these work logos which I thought were really pretty.

I got them in a couple of different colors, so I got this one and then I got the like. I think I don’t know, I don’t know what things are called you guys. I’m sorry, but this is kind of more of those like Emily Lake kind of colors. This one’s, I think, like the jewel like jewel tone, and then this is the pastel color away and the bold color way they also come in a like grayscale or black color way as well yeah, and then I also got some little flags.

I already have these in the bold color way, and this is the pastel I stocked up on some laundry little hanger guys in a couple of the different colorways, and then this is some cute little happy birthdays to put in the planner. This is the pastel color way. I also got one in the fold and then I got some little house icons. I’ve been liking using these when I work from home because it’s not planned so I like using these or if I need like home services or something happening clearly, I’m like never going to run out and then also the last two things is two of these little.

Like movie boxes, I tend to use those for like when I upload certain articles on the YouTube and then last but not least, we’ve got planner topia and I have no self-control at the human being. So I went a little ham on the birthday labels because I was setting up planners at my office and you know sometimes you just get really excited. So I actually only got three sheets from planner topia, but I got these little prescription bottles in a full colorway which is going to be great for my spreads and then I think have birthday labels that are like the bright birthday labels.

Pen Test | 2020/2021 Erin Condren Life Planner #ECSquad

If you want to see a little bit more in depth of this planner duo, I got the daily duo to review a little early. I will link a card up in the corner for you guys, but I am going to bust into one of these and we’re going to do a little pen test for you guys. I have a ton of pens here and just wanted to I already kind of already kind of started doing things, so I’m going to use yeah I’m going to use this side of the paper, because, on the very back of these daily duo’s, usually there’s a bunch Of notes pages, if you have like a regular life planner, not the duo, but this one only has the two pages and the one I would do it on won’t show any shadowing, because it’s got like the Erin Condren information page at the back.

So this wouldn’t be very helpful, so I’m going to show it to you on this page, because I don’t mind if this page gets a little shadowing doesn’t bother me at all. So I’m going to use these blue pens, which I actually have a little box of blue and a box of black pens. I think I’ve got these little boxes at Michaels. You know like at the checkout in Michaels, there’s kind of like that little area where it’s like a couple: bucks or a dollar or whatever for certain things.

This was only a dollar, but I got two of them because I wanted to have a black and blue pen test. I feel like both of them would be redundant because I’m using the same thing that’s over and over and then at the end, I’m going to share with you guys these pens, which I here I’ll show you right now, but I’ll do it at the end. This is the box and I put washi tape in the Bott of it that this pen comes in, which will also be available on launch day, and it had like all this foam in there and I just ripped out the foam, because I wanted a place to Store these, which these are like a little click pens or pens and markers that have like the barrels so anyways.

I wanted a place to put them where they wouldn’t be like tossed all over the damn place. So this was my solution tada, so they fit in here pretty perfect. Alright! So there’s that so, let’s get into the pen test something on okay, I’m going to have to organize this a little bit. So it’s like markers and actual pens kind of so I kind of have it organized a little bit, but let’s zoom, mullion and yeah.

So for my regular pens that I have clearly a pencil is going to work just fabulously for you, but I wanted to show you guys some different pens. So I’m going to start out with my favorite actual pen like a gel pen, and this is the paper made ink joy, gel pen and the o7. I don’t know what it is about. This color is like a navy color, it’s not the blue one of my faves. This is the blue Pilot g2 in the 10.

So it’s like a thicker point. I, like a thicker point, anything like an O, 5 or less. I just am NOT into I like an O 7 or larger. That’s just my personal preference and pilot g2s were my favorite until I found the paper may enjoy gels, and I’m like okay, I, like those ones better. This is the jelly roll o 6 and also in a Navy. You can tell these pens have not been used in a while. I like legit, just keep them in that little clear container for these.

My other ones that I use on a daily, which I do use a lot of these daily, are other places. Okay, and this is the Erin Condren Navy. I don’t know what the point is on this and I don’t even know if they still have them, but some of you might still have these um in your arsenal and, I believe, they’re a gel pen. But let’s let’s see here yeah, that’s very, very pointy, not my fav, but um. You know it’s good to test them all, and then these are the pilot, precise rolling ball v 5 and they’re the extra fine.

I have a regular blue and then also a navy. So, let’s um, let’s try these out. I don’t. I think these are new word to my collection. I think I had a like gift pack like a pack of a bunch of these, so I don’t know: let’s try it yeah, not my favorite again, not as what as a pointy as the erin condren one but yeah, you know and I’ve. Never. I don’t think I’ve ever written with these before yeah to to uh mm.

I don’t know scratchy scratchy for me and then okay, we’re going to go with the erin condren sapphire a pen. These are the dual tip markers another, a cult classic and some of my favorites um. I am a fan of the medium tip, so we’ll go into that in just a moment: here’s the fine point side and then we’ll go to the medium, which is my fav. No just works well for me. I don’t know I like it. I like it better and then another favorite is the Paper Mate, and this is the peppermint flare.

I don’t know, I just love the flare they’re. Just nice they’re easy. They kind of go with most things unless you need a permanent marker which these most of these worked really well on glossy or difficult to write on stickers that have a little bit of a film, so these are kind of my more permanent style. Yes, so let’s get into this, this is the micron. Oh three, it’s the pigma micron. I can tell you right now.

I absolutely hate writing with these, but I know a lot of people. Absolutely love them again. It’s too Scratchy for me, whoops man down hold on, and I know I’ve gotten comments in these articles before like. Why do you keep all these if you hate them for this for this? This is why I keep them, because everyone has something different that they like, and then I want to show you if it’s shadows or if the shadowing would bother you – and these are all things I’ve either picked up over the years – that I know don’t work for Me or that have been gifted to me or put in some swag bag, and I just keep them because I know someone out there has them and they’d probably be interesting to see how paper holds up, not just erin condren paper, but other paper and stuff too.

So anywhere, so, let’s write this one down all right, pigma micron and then we’ve got that’s. Oh there’s two of these. I don’t. I don’t even test two of them. This is the lip pen and I actually really like the way that this, like the stroke of it like works, really well, but it’s still again. The point is to for me to it. I don’t know how to say it all right. Nice yeah – and this is the Stabenow – do the look.

I don’t know how to say it. I don’t say anything and then we’ve got this one, which I absolutely love. It’s the marks a lot permanent and these are in the ultrafine tip. I did some research online and this one you can only get in like a rainbow pack. They don’t have these yet and I hope they do at some point so Avery. If you’re reading, which I know they’re not you need to make pacts with just black and you need to pick make pacts with just blue trust me because I would buy them, but right now, you can only get them in a rainbow pack.

So these are the Avery marks a lot so good, so good y’all and it almost rivals this bad boy, which is my favorite fav, which is the pilot ultrafine point permanent type marker, I’m just going to put pilot ultrafine because you don’t need the rest of it. My favorite, that’s my favorite one, to write like for sure this one’s actually pretty good as well. This is the Sharpie permanent marker in the ultrafine a point, and this is actually navy.

I actually had to buy from a seller on Amazon, like a box of these and my god they’re. So good they’re not like this, like the lepen or the Avery, like that’s a very royal blue, where this is like a navy which I very much prefer like you, can see the difference. And then this is just a regular sharpie marker. Just a sharpie fine point like the ones you get like big boxes of at the office supply store, I’m just going to write, sharpie yeah and see the color between the two.

Much prefer the Navy fo sho. Okay. So that’s that, let’s look at the other side, and let me do this. Let me zoom you all in a little bit, so you can see the shadowing because I know that’s a big deal PS turning 40 on january. 9Th in case you want to, you know, send me some love, but what is the way but anyways, but yeah. You really can’t see too much shadowing too bad. Nothing would really bother me until these ones, like the Avery marks a lot and down so like the Avery marks a lot.

Let’s go like this, like the Avery marks a lot, the pirate pirate, the pilot ultra fine point, the Sharpie ultra fine and then our sharpie sharpie. Those would really bother me, but, to be honest, I personally write a lot with stickers. Like I put a sticker down and then I write with it, so really I don’t have a lot of this, but if you are concerned about shadowing, I wouldn’t do a permanent marker on this type of paper, and this is, I think I said this already, but It’s an 80-pound Mohawk paper and they’ve been using the same paper in their planners, for is this their third or fourth year.

I think it’s their third year doing this paper and it’s not a glassy feeling. You know paper is really glassy feeling it does have a little bit of a grip to it, which I think is great for people that want to use stickers or whatever it just. It doesn’t fly out of your hands, which I think is nice, but I really like the quality. That’s very. I don’t know it’s thick, but it’s not too thick. It’s not like cardstock thick, but it’s it’s good, but it’s like an 80 pound paper anyway.

So yeah here we go: oh, let’s zoom back out cuz. This is the weird and then why don’t we use some of these because I haven’t to be honest. I haven’t used check them out. There’s some highlighters, which I want to put all the like ones. Together. Cuz, you know neuroses and whatnot, alright, so with the highlighters, I’m just going to write highlighter right here, cuz. That seems like the easiest, and then this is like a ballpoint pen, just like a regular pen like a little twisty pen from Erin Condren, and you get this and the box.

But in the Box you get that um foam thing I was talking about that. I ripped out because I don’t like it so yeah you can tell I have never written with this, because it’s skipping and probably get the ball rolling on it. Quick. You know, like oh yeah kind of, have to do that to warm up the pens. Sometimes, let’s try this one well, what the heck! Maybe it’s just my pen, I don’t know, leaving a failure.

Okay and there’s like nothing behind it. So weird, okay! So it’s such a fail! You guys! Okay, let me try it down here. I just I don’t know. Okay, what is going on? Okay, it’s working fine on like this paper, but not on the Erin Condren paper, I’m so confused! Okay! Now it’s not even like what what the heck! Why is it working on here, but not oh, my gosh! You guys! Okay! Well! This is a fail. I I don’t know I don’t know what’s going on, but whatever let me just show you the highlighter.

All I wanted to do is just like go Knight Cadiz and go oh look at the fine line. It’s good uh, anyways! Okay! These are just the highlighter colors yikes, you know, sometimes it’s probably user error, because I am kind of the worst when it comes to certain things. But anyway, I didn’t use the little doodad over here, but that’s okay, alright, so the fine tips, there’s three fine tips and then the rest are medium tips.

So let’s do the medium tips. These feel exactly the same as the dual tip, medium for sure yeah. I really I like the medium. Like I said before I love the medium, I’m I’m not a fine tip girl at all. I, like a medium. The highlighters actually felt really nice as well so yeah. Let’s do some more medium yeah that one that one’s my jam yeah, I’m not sure of the colors the colors – will be listed on the website when everything is alive for you guys, I just don’t have the information right in front of me because you know I Just don’t: oh, I like this color.

This kind of I don’t know like sorbet kind of a color okay, so that is that and then they all come with this like barrel and there’s two barrels in the box that will be available on launch day. So there is that and then we have the fine tips so again, not a fine tip girl. That’s okay! That’s okay! I mean they write nice. It’s just you know not my preference and I have three fine tips. So look at this blue one down alright.

So, anyway, that’s the pen test. Let’s look at the back side of this, so you guys can see on let’s zoom y’all in just a little bit here: okay, okay, let’s go beyond where it says sharpie these are going to be. You know where every where all the colorful ones are, and I don’t really see too much in the shadowing. To be honest, I mean, when you lift it up, you can see it just slightly, but if you have a piece of paper behind it, you really don’t really don’t see it.

I see the most shadowing right here, which is when I tried to use this thing and I was like going yeah yeah like I couldn’t, couldn’t stop because the pen wouldn’t go for me so anyway, but that’s what it looks so, like close up, I really like The highlighters and I like the mediums a lot fines, not my jam, but I feel like if you like, a fine tip you’re going to like those markers and then with the versatility of the barrel kind of nice to just swap these in and out once in A while, alright, so that’s going to be the pen test for the new planners, which are the 2021 through 2022 Erin Condren life liners.
