As a Planner Enthusiast, I’m a fan of Plan With Me style posts and videos where people share how they plan out any given day, week, or month in their planners. I’ve changed up how I plan in my Erin Condren Life Planner since diving into the world of planner stickers over the past month. I thought I’d try my hand at a Plan With Me style video (see below). I’m posting photos and links here in case you want a closer look.

I love using my custom Avery 5418 labels in my monthly spread. They’re repositionable which makes them super easy to move around without wrecking the paper or the labels. I use my monthly spread to plan out my posting schedule for both my blog and YouTube channel. The washi tape marks off travel and time off.
I do not have a tutorial for how I make my custom Avery 5418 labels, because I use Photoshop, which I realize isn’t a program most people have. Carissa Wiley on YouTube has a great video tutorial for how to make something similar using Microsoft Word or Photoshop Elements if you’re interested in trying this out for yourself.
Here you can see the complete weekly spread I work on in my coordinating video. I make the social media checklists at the bottom of my spread using Photoshop. Here’s a list of the Etsy sticker shops I used:
✢ Paper Loving Mommy – Headers, heart checklists, banners, flags, weather, mailboxes, groceries, laundry, watering can, airplane
✢ My Own Island – Meal banner,* pregnant lady*
✢ Station Stickers – Doctor’s bag, puppy bath
✢ Sweet Kawaii Design – Laptops, trash can, recycling bin
✢ It’s Planning Time – Nail polish, summer graphics
✢ Scribble Prints Co – Weekend banner*
I thought it would be fun to also share my favorite planner accesssories of the moment. I just got a new custom planner cover from Erin Condren that I love. The colors go great with this month’s spread! I love using Peach Pom‘s Pom Pom Paper Clips to mark my spot in my planner. The lavender pom is a perfect match for the monthly color scheme and my planner cover. I also use Girl of All Work’s Sock Hop Sticky Tabs in my planner. The size fits perfectly in the sidebars! I received the washi tapes I use in my monthly spreads as gifts, The bright colors and patterns really pop to help me track my travel and time off.
