Before the Pen
I’ve already ‘jazzed up’ similar spreads using highlighters over weekdays and highlighted the divider lines between each day, so this time I wanted to add some stickers! While the planner was not expired, days of the week and date stickers are my preferred way (and the easiest) to use an expired planner.
These stickers are from the MAMBI journaling sticker book – I did have to trim the days of the week stickers (they have more white on either side of the days).
After the Pen
I quite like how this spread turned out!
Simple, functional and uncluttered 🙂

I rarely use outline stickers as I find them boring.. but I like them colored in!
I did test swatches of a few gold pens – the closest match to the MAMBI stickers was an American Crafts gel pen.
I wanted the checkboxes pre-printed on the spread to match but not use up more stickers from the sticker book, so just outlined them with the gold pen instead.

Would I use this planner again?
I like this weekly spread and the fact that the weekdays are slightly smaller to allow a larger notes and checklist section. It’s a simple and functional weekly spread but I can’t think of many other ways I could decorate it, so I’m undecided if I’ll use it again.
