l’ve planned using sticky notes a few times in the past on paper, but never digitally. I liked how this spread turned out, but not so much how this one turned out. So I decided to try again but using digital sticky notes in Goodnotes this time.
Before the Pen
I imported this printable note paper from my shop into Goodnotes. I did a tutorial on how to do this here. If you’re adding the pages to a digital notebook and want to resize them to fit, I did a tutorial on how to do that here.
After the Pen
With more ‘black out’ bullet journals making an appearance I thought I’d do a digital version and use black. I could’ve just used black paper… but that’s a bit boring. So I made some black days of the week sticky notes instead.
I originally used white but it looked boring so changed to writing in colors instead.
On the right side I did my usual rainbow colors with a top 3, to do list and a quick tasks list.
If anyone is wondering, I used 0.45 pen size for general writing and 0.7 for the sticky notes. I prefer to zoom in, write with the Apple Pencil and then zoom out. It just seems to work better than writing on the iPad at full page size.
Would I use this weekly spread again?
The sticky notes looked alright but would I do again? Maybe, maybe not.
Digital planning is ok every now and then… but I still prefer pen and paper. I like using digital stickers / more decoration in a digital planner as I can easily move things around. Most planner stickers are on non-removable sticker paper so once it’s stuck it’s hard to move without ripping the paper – not a problem when digital planning!
