Today’s post is for all you die-hard Erin Condren fans! You guys loved my calendar stickers so I’ve made stickers that are especially designed to fit the Erin Condren Life Planner! (They can also be used for other planners such as plum paper and my 2015 printable planners)
And for those of you who have asked for a smaller size for the other calendar stickers, please see this post which has helpful screenshots on how to change the page scaling (e.g. 100% to 50% will make them 0.375″in size.
UPDATE: New half inch (0.5″) square stickers are also available with each sheet featuring a different icon e.g. gas pump, dollar sign, laundry, trash can ect. Visit my Etsy store, AllAboutTheHouse for the full range. More stickers have also been added including triangle corner stickers, ECLP full box, daily sidebar and checklist stickers for the ECLP Horizontal version, flag stickers and much more!
These templates and designs take a long time to make and I have priced them affordably so you can add a special personalized touch to your planner without breaking your bank. Please do not abuse this and respect the time it takes to create these designs. These files are strictly for PERSONAL USE ONLY.
Morning/Day/Night Sections (but can be used in other sections of the planner – or in any planner) – The stickers are close together on the template making it easier if you are cutting them by hand or using a guillotine (which I recommend) or paper trimmer.
Full Box stickers for the white spaces underneath the Morning/Day/Night titles
Due Stickers – for school assessment due dates, bills to be paid, goals, to do’s ect. (they can be used daily, weekly or even monthly – whatever works best for you)
Tick List Stickers – can be used for to do lists, chores, goals, homework, work tasks, blogging to dos, bills to pay ect.
Checklist stickers – use for to do lists, chores, goals, homework, work tasks, blogging to dos, bills to be paid ect.
Weekly Stickers – Sunday and Monday start versions included – can be used for expense tracking, income tracking, meal planning, weight and measurements, calorie counting, number of steps, routine chores, prioritising most important task per day, gratitutde, medication/prescriptions, exercise for the week, hrs worked, hrs studied ect.
Heart List Stickers – can be used for to do lists, chores, goals, homework, work tasks, blogging to dos, bills to pay ect.
Lined Stickers – for general note taking, do lists, chores, goals, homework, meal planning, work tasks, blogging to dos, bills to be paid ect. Need half box size? (for underneath each day) – just cut to size
Flag stickers – large and small – width will fit the width of the white boxes under the morning/day/night headings. The small flags can be used in any direction e.g. lengthways or vertically (as shown below).
Large Flags (for the sections underneath the Morning/Day/Night titles) – in rainbow (as shown) and grey
Small Flags – you can rotate and use these in whatever direction works best for you – they fit the width of the white box underneath the ‘morning, day, night’ titles – they come in rainbow and grey
0.25″ (quarter inch) Round Stickers – great for colour-coding. Cut into strips and use in the white boxes underneath the morning/day/night titles, or print a strip and place over the lined goals section on the side (if you need another size or e.g. 0.25″ square stickers ), please contact me
Bill Due/Payments stickers – write the bill and amount in the white space. I use a different colour for each type of bill e.g. pink = electricity, purple = phone ect.

And for all the planner addicts, you can purchase all stickers and all chevron planner printable sets currently available here
UPDATE: Unfortunately I have had to remove the Get It All bundles due to customers computers not being able to handle the MASSIVE number of files (hundreds) through one download link resulting in me having to send them via email which meant I was actually losing money.
A note about printing: matte sticker paper is recommended if you want to write on the stickers. See here for a list of places to purchase label paper from. Re-positionable full sheet label paper is available from Staples among other places. I’ve found that buying label paper online is cheaper than in store. Online Labels sells 100 sheets for $30 or just 30c for a whole page of stickers!
I also get asked how I cut the stickers. I use a paper trimmer I purchased a few years back. I can’t remember where I bought it from but it is similar to this one. I prefer that style of paper trimmer to this style as I find it easier to see where I’m cutting and easier to cut multiple sheets at once. I print off sticker sheets, set up my paper trimmer in the front of the tv and by the end of a show I’ve cut all the stickers! For the flag stickers I use scissors for the flag ends. If you want round stickers I recommend using a craft punch such as this one.
These stickers are STRICTLY FOR PERSONAL USE ONLY. NO COMMERCIAL USE is allowed including: reselling, printing and selling, sharing, giveaways and posting them on your blog for others to download. If someone you know would like a copy, please direct them to my store. You may NOT PROFIT FROM these stickers in any way – thank you for respecting the time it takes to create these designs!
I get a lot of enquires regarding if there is a printed and shipped to your door option for these stickers so I want to know:
I live in Australia – I know many of you live in the USA so the other thing I would like to know is:
I have some good news – you can also purchase the Photoshop templates I have created and make your own stickers. AND you CAN sell the stickers you make with the templates in digital and/or printed form. But you CANNOT sell the photoshop template, share, sell, giveaway (such as make directly available for download from your blog – please direct people to my store to purchase themselves if they are interested). If you are interested in purchasing, please contact me at email@example.com
Customers often ask me how I make these stickers. To see if this would be feasible, please let me know how much you would pay for a comprehensive guide on how to make your own calendar stickers? (for personal and/or commercial use). I would include in the guide 5 different ways for making calendar stickers (with free and paid software) and where to buy sticker paper from (USA and Australia).
Are there any other sticker designs, colours or sizes you would like to see? If so, please comment below – I am a bit obsessed with making stickers at the moment!
The dashboards are 2.75″ wide x 6.75″ high which will fit pretty much any planner including: letter size planners, arc (letter size and junior size), A4, A5, filofax, portable daytimer, franklin covey, Plum Paper, both sizes of my Rainbow Planner and of course the Erin Condren life planner (or any of her notebooks ect.).
To make your dashboard 1. ‘Purchase‘ the template (it’s free – just add to cart and ‘checkout’) then print the template onto letter size 8.5 x 11″ or A4 size paper
To make double sided dashboard take 2 copies of the template e.g. one side the checklist, the other lined for notes and use double sided tape or glue tape (so the pages aren’t too fat to laminate) to adhere together before laminating. I recommend printing onto cardstock but this is not necessary.
If you do not have a laminating machine – your local office supply store e.g. Staples, Officeworks ect. will do this for you inexpensively
3. Cut around the dashboard, leaving approx half an inch of laminate on one side for punching the holes
4. If using with your Erin Condren planner, you can purchase coil clips from her website. Otherwise use the Arc punch if you have an Arc notebook (this is what I did), or use a hole punch if you are using a 3 ring binder or similar.
5. Use dry erase markers or fine tip pens to write on and wipe clean with a cloth, tissue ect.
You can also print a bunch and turn them into a tear-off notepad. Add a magnet and place on your fridge for a grocery list, meal planning ect. There are many tutorials for how to do this, here are a few: Playful Learning, She Knows, Skip To My Lou, ChicandJo, agusyornet and ThreeBySea. When I made mine I used modge podge. If you’re concerned about printer ink – the stripes also print nicely in greyscale.
A note about free printables:
All printables offered on my blog are for PERSONAL USE only – thank you!
– Print as many copies as you like for your personal use
– Use them in a group or classroom setting
– Share the link to blog post with the free printable on your blog (but do NOT share the free printable on your blog)
– Pin away! PLEASE pin directly from this page or the blog post with the free printable, not the direct printable link
You may not:
– Sell or distribute any of my files
– Host any of my files on your own website (please provide a link back to this page)
– Upload my files to a shared website (4shared, Rapid Fire, Dropbox etc)
I have also designed a new half-size weekly layout that allows more room to write with the days going across the page than the columns like the letter size (full size) planner style.
I hope you guys like this new planner style as much as I enjoyed creating it 🙂
If you’re concerned about using up printer ink you could have the files printed at your local office supply store (send me a convo via etsy and I will give you a print release) the chevron and stripes patterns also print nicely in greyscale.
Printing instructions are included. Before printing you will need to pre-cut letter size paper in half (most office supply stores will do this for you if you don”t have a paper trimmer, you can also buy pre-cut paper reams)
You can read more about the rainbow planner and chevron planners in THIS post.
Please excuse the poor quality photos – the colours are actually much brighter in person!
I. Am. OBSESSED with it! I created the whole planner from scratch (well, except the arc notebook I used to assemble it of course). The planner pages are 8.5 x 11″ in size. I know a lot of people prefer the smaller planner sizes but portability and compactibility isn’t an issue for me as I carry a large handbag. I’ll discuss printing options if you’d like to use the pages in an A5, half size or filofax planner at the bottom of this post.
One of the most important things about a planner is its’ pretty cover page! I am OBSESSED with pretty cover pages. Every binder I use has to have a cover page. I created one cover for the planner then came up with ideas for another cover. And another one. I ended up with about 15 covers before I finally gained some self-control. I get bored with covers easily so I intend to use a different one each month. This is the one I am currently using:
I’ve listed all the other covers in my Etsy shop if you’re a cover addict like me. These covers are personalised with your monogram and/or other wording that you would like. Due to customisation these are sent within 48hours of your purchase.
These covers are an instant download so you can use them right away!
You could also pair the planner with one of my other binder covers
Let’s take a tour of my planner!
After the cover page is the ‘this belongs to page’ in case my planner ever gets lost.
Followed by the 2014 and 2015 dates at a glance pages (with space tor record those new years resolutions/goals that I’m going to try and accomplish)
I forget to take photos of these pages in my assembled planner.
Then the ‘special dates’ page where I list national holidays for 2014 , 2015 and 2016. This sheet is not pre-filled so you could live anywhere in the world and still use this planner! I live in Australia which is why this page is not pre-filled with American holidays. You can find a summary of national holidays relevant to your country on this website
Important dates where I list birthday’s, anniversaries ect. You could also use it for annual planning.
This is the weekly spread that I personally use. I am obsessed with lists so this layout has been working perfectly for me!
The ‘simple‘ version where you can make it your own e.g. add lines across the page to separate each column into boxes to separate things like school, work, social, reminders, meal planning ect. Or just keep the columns blank with lots of open-ended writing space
I also have an undated (and editable!) version. I use this on days where I need to get a lot done and I want to map out exactly how I will use my time. I call this the ‘schedule’ planning method (rather than the open-ended weekly pages). There are 2 lines beside each hour – one line per 30 minutes of the day. I print a few off and keep them at the back of the planner then transfer them to the current week when I need them.
Wondering what that un-labelled box is for? Anything! After designing and using many daily planners I have found that I needed a section that was flexible. Some days I use this box to record my exercise plan, on other days I use it for reminders or calls I need to make. I also like having a large notes section so I can jot down messages when I’m on the phone. I used to scramble around for a piece of paper which I then couldn’t find a few days later. This way I can keep everything in order 🙂 The meals box is big enough to plan all daily meals or just dinner and a few things I need to pick up from the store on my way home.
After all the months, I include extra notes pages as well as pages you can purchase separately from the ‘Extra’s package.’ I store these pages behind the ‘Miscellaneous’ divider (which comes with the planner).
I LOVE calendar stickers but they are very hard to find in Australia so I made my own. Because I am obsessed with things being coordinated I used the same colours as the rainbow stripe pattern on the planner. I made my own template in photoshop and printed the 6 sheets onto full sheet 8.5 x 11″ label paper then cut using a guillotine (you could also use a paper trimmer or scissors). I keep them in a clip top bag in the ziplock pouch I also purchased for the back of the planner.
The colours do actually print that nice and bright. The photos makes them look much darker than they actually are!
I bought these pockets to keep random papers in. E.g. if I get the mail on my way out the door I will tuck it in these pockets and take them out when I get home.
Back cover (should you choose to have your planner spiral bound or use it in a binder)
If you’re concerned about printer ink, here are how some of the pages look printed in greyscale:
Still quite pretty!
HOW I ORGANISE MY PLANNER
1. Colour code. I write everything in my planner in black pen. I don’t use a special brand of pen. I use cheap ones from discount stores like the Reject Shop and Crazy Clark’s. I live in Australia so I don’t have access to Walmart :(. I then highlight each ‘thing’ in my planner in a different colour. For example: yellow is Etsy, pink is personal, green is appointments and social events, purple is to do’s, orange is family and light blue is finances. When I was in school I used to use different colours for homework, assessment due dates ect.
2. Calendar Stickers (which I mentioned above). They’re rainbow and co-ordinate with my planner – nuff said 🙂
HOW I USE MY PLANNER
1. I write things like when bills are due in the monthly view. I also note any appointments and social events. I try to minimise what I write in the monthly view to prevent it from being over-cluttered. One of the reasons I use a full-size planner is because of the large writing space in the monthly view. I have used smaller planners before and found I filled the little boxes too quickly. I also cannot stand trying to write something into a planner and not having the page to lean my hand against as I enter a task (hopefully you understand what I mean, I know I didn’t explain that very clearly :/)
2. The weekly views show each day in more detail. Occasionally I review my ‘master’ to do list which I keep in my lists book. I shared some pictures of it at the bottom of this post. Basically I printed off all the sheets from my lists kit and bound them into a notebook.
Anyway, in the lists book I have monthly to do lists. At the start of the year I list things I’d like to complete for each month (personal, work – everything) and stop about 5 lines short of the bottom of the page (gotta keep room for ideas that pop up throughout the year!) Each month I pick out the main to do’s and fill the first monthly to do list column in the planner (on the monthly planning page). I keep the second column free for to do’s I think of throughout the month. So basically the lists book is a ‘reference’ and my planner summarises those lists.
I’ll pick a few of the monthly to do’s in my planner that I feel are the highest priority. I transfer tasks that need to occur to complete each of those to do’s to the weekly pages of my planner. For example, if I am working on a new planner set then I will break the planner down into smaller to do’s and allocate those throughout the weeks of the month. I write these steps in the unlined section of each day. I keep the checklists for routine tasks such as laundry, grocery shopping, emptying the dishwasher, de-cluttering ect.
The reason I love the layout of the weekly pages is because they are simple, uncluttered, flexible and don’t have too much colour. I do love a bit of colour (hence the rainbow stripe), but because I highlight/colour-code my planner I kept it to black only below the pattern. I don’t like planners that include mini monthly views on each weekly spread as I find this a massive waste of space. I rarely need to know what day a certain date falls on and if I do I have the monthly summary pages and the dates at a glance places to refer to.
I do use tabs as you can see in the pictures. I purchased these from Staples. They were pre hole punched for a 3 ring binder but I punched over the top – they are made of a plastic-like material so they still stay in place in the Arc notebook. I am on the lookout for nicer tabs because I’d prefer them to be thicker like cardstock. If anyone knows of any good tabs please let me know!
So that’s my planner! If anyone has any questions or comments I’d love to hear from you 🙂
***PRINTING YOUR PLANNER***
The pages are 8.5 x 11″ in size. They will work with printers that CAN do duplex printing and also printers that CANNOT do duplex printing. Detailed printing instructions are included in your purchase. As all printers are different, I cannot offer technical support for printing. No refunds will be made if you are unable to print the pages due to your printer having different settings than shown in the example/if you do not know how to use your printer. If you are having problems printing your planner at home, I recommend printing at your local office supply store.
If you want to use the pages in an A5/Filofax/half size planner you can by using ‘2 per page’ or ‘multiple’ print settings and then cut the 8.5 x 11″ sheet in half. However, they will be single-sided.
If you would like to use the planner pages in a personal or smaller than half size planner I do not recommend doing this. You can print any page at any size (smaller than 8.5 x 11″). See this post on printing tips for instructions (tip 2). The reason I do not recommend this is because you will need to cut every sheet down to size.
As a side note – a coupon is included in the printing instructions document which you can use on all future purchases until the end of 2015!
***PLANNER SOURCE LIST***
Arc punch (I’ve read that the Levenger punch is compatible)
