Stationary Planner Supplies

It's a wrap for the Instagram #hellowashi Photo Planner Challenge I've been participating in this month. It's been good but also a bit time consuming! I will most likely go back to posting photos of my stationery and planners every other day or so. No pressure, I'll just take it easy for now. I did gain quite a few followers from doing the challenge and it's been fun for me! I do more Instagram photo taking challenges later on, but for now, I need a break.

Sticker Organizer Planner Pockets

DIY Sticker Storage Pockets

Some time ago, I created planner pockets made from cardstock to keep my stickers in. I'm still loving this storage idea and originally, it was in a Filofax Personal Planner. But I ended up upgrading to a larger size to an A5 planner. I love it even more now! I prefer these pockets to plastic ones (where you have to squeeze your way in to get the stickers out). It's simple to make - I don't use glue or anything complicated. Washi tapes are what's holding the folded card stock in place. :D

You can either make them or some are ready made available to buy in scrapbook stores or shops which sell planner supplies.

Instagram Planner Photo Challenge

Thoroughly enjoying taking photos of my planners & stationery and displaying them in my Instagram Photo Gallery. I joined a Photo Challenge for the month to start the year off and it's going quite well. Some pictures I get just right, others turn out great! Still loving my Erin Condren planner!

Stationery Swap List Planner Inserts

Since I've been getting into all these Stationery Swaps in various Facebook Groups I'm in, I decided to create A5 stationery swap list inserts. Just to keep track of what I send and receive. Pdf file is available for download in my shop popmix.etsy.com.

Update: Currently not available.

My Creative Home Office

A few months ago I posted a little bit of my creative work space - this is the full desk area and I've got a lot more on it now! My stationery shopping have gone into overdrive since joining Instagram :D

Anyway, it's all about stackable containers, pretty boxes and a vision "wall", instead of a board! I have a magnetic board but it just can't fit enough of what I want. Why limit yourself, right? The bigger, the better!

A lot of these containers I'm using are from bargain stores, mostly Daiso and the Reject Shop. Usually quite cheap, often just a couple of dollars each. So, it's not too expensive being organised!

Xyron Sticker Maker

Lincraft was having a massive sale during Boxing Day - 40% off everything! So I took advantage and got the last Xyron machine there - I've had my eye on it for ages and what better time to get this! I also bought the rest of the 3 cartridges left in the store - all repositionable.

Anyway, I love those humorous Retro Housewives, so I decided to print some of them out to fit into my Erin Condren planner and turn them into stickers. Really loving the Xyron sticker maker! It's so easy to use!!

Erin Condren Planners

The Erin Condren Planner is so impressive, that I decided to get another one! This time, a Gold edition featuring gold spiral coils and gold foil on the cover!

I'll be using the silver spiral one as my 2014 memory keeper diary, since I didn't really have a planner "home" for the year of 2014! I kept changing and a lot of things I wrote and listed were on bits of paper or notepad. With some embellishments and date stickers, I will be able to transform this from a 2015 planner to a 2014! It will be nice to have my notes for the year in such a gorgeous planner, especially since I also got a sparkly new cover for it! I love the EC planners so much! Very highly recommended.
