Sticker Junkies – Get Your Fix With This Awesome Crystal and Company Giveaway!

Hello my name is Jenn, and I am a sticker junkie. *All in unison: Hi Jenn!* 

No, seriously. In my opinion, there is no better way to pretty up your planner than with an awesome set of stickers. I’m terrible at using stamps, and my hand lettering is atrocious.

That being said, I heavily rely on the stickers to help me keep it cute and fun to look at! Package them all up in a matching kit, already cut to the perfect size, and my sticker loving heart starts to flutter!

As a busy work at home mom, I need quick and easy! I also need to make sure I like to actually look at my planner everyday otherwise I start to resent it, and then nothing gets done. That’s what I love so much about Crystal and Company!

Crystal and Company

Crystal & Company has become my one stop shop for planner stickers. With over 600 listings in her store, she seems to have a sticker for everything! Functional, decor, themed, boxes and lists – Crystal has it all!

Every Friday she releases new stickers at a 20% discount (which you can get daily sneak peeks of if you follow my planner-dedicated instagram account). She also has a $1 spot where you can choose from many different stickers and pay only $1 per sheet! You cannot beat her prices!

Not only does she have amazing stickers, but awesome accessories as well! Need a crystal gem pen or planner band? She’s got them! What about a tassel or paper clips? Yep, you guessed it, she’s got those too! Her store has everything you need to decorate every aspect of your planner.

My favorite thing to buy though is her monthly planner kit, also known as the MPK. Why? Because, you get all of the above planner sticker and accessories in a matching theme every month!

Between her regular planner kits and her add on kits you get well over 600 themed stickers, matching clips, planner bands, gem pens, washi tape, and even sweet treats! Nothing makes my mailbox happier than a Crystal and Company Monthly Planner Kit! Even my wallet is happy, since her kits are only $20 plus $3 flat rate shipping!

Create Your Own Layout: Free Strawberry Themed Printable Stickers

Hey everyone!! Stephanie here again to share with you a fun set of printables for your Happy Planner. So this is a tad different than all the other printables I’ve shared so far.

create your own layout free strawberry themed printables

FREE Strawberry Themed Planner Stickers

First off, it’s summery themed with strawberries. I love strawberries and they remind me of summer so much. Fresh picked strawberries are the best!

Here’s a sneak peek of what it looks like.

Create Your Own Layout Free Strawberry Themed PrintableYou may already know how this sticker layout is different than other ones that I have made. The picture above shows some of the items that come with this layout.

The layout will be available in a folder for you to download and each piece is it’s own file. You can design your own layouts with as many of the pieces as you want, this way you’re not limited to one or two of each of the items. You can use as many of whatever piece you want!

Print This Printable Straight to Your Happy Planner Pages

The lovely Squadette Jenn posted this super awesome Happy Planner printing hack in the past. You can use these elements individually like she did in the tutorial and print them directly onto your Happy Planner pages!

Create Your Own Printable Layout

You can can also use an editing software like Photoshop or Microsoft Word to make layouts like I have in the past. Today I will share with you a tutorial on exactly how to do this. 

First, click here to download this FREE Strawberry Themed Printable!

Next, you’ll want to open Word, Photoshop or some other program where you can manipulate the files.  I’ll be using Photoshop.

I like to make my layouts on a 8.5 x 11 page so I can just slap printer paper or sticker paper in the printer and print them out!

Once you have a new document opened, go ahead and open the file and start placing them in your document.

Create Your Own Layout Free Strawberry Themed Printable

Look at all those pretties! With an 8.5 x 11 page, you can usually get five of the boxes across, so that’s what I usually do with my layouts.

Create Your Own Layout Free Strawberry Themed Printable

Just keep adding in the elements that you want to add to your planner page and then when you’re ready, print them off and get ready to make your planner look beautiful!

Here’s how my layout turned out:

I like using more of the functional pieces rather than the decorative pieces.

I have a similar planner in A5 size.  My Carpe Diem A5 is also outstanding and I will be sharing a thorough comparison of both A5 planners in the very near Planner Squad future.

When I saw this stunning white Color Crush A5 Planner Kit on Blitsy, I knew that Planner Squad needed to have it as a giveaway.  These puppies were flying off the shelves and I was lucky enough to land one for Planner Squad.

To complete the giveaway, I had to throw in one of their pretty tassels and some fun stickers.

Planner Sticker Cutting Hack – Gyro Cut Review

We don’t know about you but we do not like cutting out planner stickers.  We equate cutting out free planner stickers that we print out to getting a tooth pulled or water torture.  It takes us forever to cut the stickers out and then we spend three times as long peeling the sticker off.  (Are we the only planner girls with this struggle?)

Don’t get us wrong- We LOVE free printable planner stickers!  The gracious ladies who design such gorgeous planners stickers and offer them for free from their sites are like angels.  We have to watch our planning budgets and these ladies save us so much money!

gyro cut review

We just do not like the time that goes into cutting and peeling off printable stickers!  Sure, we could invest in a Cricut, Silhouette, or the like but unfortunately we don’t have the money to spend on that kind of thing right now.  (But, hey, if you have an extra laying around, we wouldn’t turn it down!)

We found ourselves not printing out as many adorable free printable stickers because we just don’t have the time to deal.  Then, we were introduced to the Gyro Cut.

*Disclaimer – We received this product free in exchange for our honest review. The opinions of Amy and Jenn are 100% authentic, as we do not believe in promoting a product we do not believe in.

Ladies, our planning world has been rocked once more!

Gyro Cut is an amazing craft tool that cuts thin materials like paper, vinyl, tissue paper, and foil.  It is hand-help with a 360° rotating blade. Our klutzy selves appreciate the fact that it will not cut human skin with normal use.

After some practice with Gyro Cut, we have come to love our free printable planner stickers once more!

Why We Love Gyro Cut As An Affordable Planner Sticker Cutting Tool

The #1 reason that Gyro Cut rocks is that it has tremendously decreased our time for cutting out stickers.  We heart our Happy Planners and adore them even more with planner stickers like boxes and sweet extras.  We do find, however, that it takes longer to decorate and that is not good for these busy homeschooling and blogging mamas.

Gyro Cut was a bit tricky to master-at first and has a bit of a learning curve. It takes some time to adjust to the feel of using it. Using too much pressure will cut all the way through the paper, but not enough pressure means you will hardly cut through at all.

It also seems to work easier if you have a more steady hand. At first, we weren’t really sure how we felt about it, but with some practice, we both finally got the hang of it! And, boy, Gyro Cut is fun to use!

The best part of the Gyro Cut is that its much easier on your bank account with its very affordable price.


Tips for Using the Gyro Cut

  • Use a cutting mat or the like (Amy uses a cork board square she had in her craft stash)
  • Leave part of the white edge around your stickers for a cleaner look
  • Practice on older stickers or regular paper to get the hang of it before using on your good stuff

Would we recommend the Gyro Cut to our readers? Absolutely! It’s such an affordable alternative to sticker cutting, and takes much less storage space.

Do you have this awesome tool? If so comment below and let us know what you think of it. If you have a planner or paper crafting friend who might be interested in learning more about Gyro Cut, share this post with them!
