YESTERDAY WAS THE DAY our online SHOP doors virtually opened to the newest Happy Planner® release! Woo hoo! One of the brand new products from the release is our Sticker Storage Book, and today we're sharing how mambi Design Team member Mariel Reyes (IG | blog) assembled it, and used it to organize & categorize her piles of Happy Planner® stickers!
About this, Mariel writes:
"I did the UNTHINKABLE…I took the stickers out of my value packs! I know you might be thinking WHHYYYY would I do something like that. I found that I was spending entirely too much time looking for stickers I needed. I would remember a cute coral appointment sticker, but couldn’t remember which book it was in and would end up flipping through 6 books before I could find it! NOT a good use of my time. I was determined to get organized with my stickers, and I did just that with the new Happy Planner® Sticker Storage Book! It was just what I needed to get started!"
"First I went through and created categories of stickers. Think of the way you plan and how you use your stickers. For me, I went with the following:
• Quotes (just words)
• Quotes on Shapes
• Quotes/words in circles
• Dot sticker Asterisks
• Fill in boxes/Checklists
• Productivity Words
• Appointment/Activity Words
• Decorative Boxes
• Decorative Washi Strips
YEP! I had a lot of categories, so I know I will need more than one storage book."
"Then I got to tearing! As I pulled the sheets out, I wrote the Value Pack information on the back along with a color code dot. Each pack got it’s own color. Once empty, I set the covers aside. Then I peeled back the adhesive on the inserts that came with the sticker book and places my sticker page."
"I wrote the information on the card about the value pack it was from and the color coded dot. Then it is ready to assemble by category. The sticker book comes with labels so you can customize the dividers into your own categories. I also punched all the sticker book covers and added them to the back for reference. And VOILA! I was now organized."
"If I ever want to grab stickers from the same set, I can quickly easily identify matches by using the color code/information with a quick flip through of the book. If I am running out of a page, I can easily ID which value pack it came from so I can replace it. I am really excited to use my new system and be more productive when planning."
"LAST NOTE: I did NOT disassemble the new packs that come prepunched- I gave them their own section nor did I take apart the Fitness or Rainbow as they were specialized as they were."
