Simple Washi Planner Layouts – Erin Condren Planner
I have been using my Erin Condren planner for over 2 months now. I usually prepare my new layout on the weekend before the new weeks starts and fill out the fields as the week progresses.
Over the last 10 weeks I have accumulated over 125 rolls of washi tape. yikes! However, I did not purchase any additional planner stickers other than the ones that came with my planner. I am quite happy with just using washi tape for the layouts.
This blog post will show some my weekly layouts. They usually look very similar but will have different colors and designs.
I am thinking about trying to make my own stickers soon. It shouldn’t be to hard and I will make a post with instructions as well. The stickers will be great for kids sports schedules, bills to keep track off, pay days and TV shows for example. Something that is reoccurring. All I need to get is sticker paper and a color printer ( currently only have a black laser printer).
Sometimes there is a lot of white space left over when there is not much going on for day. I usually try to fill it with washi tape when the week is done.
Using washi tape instead of store bought stickers is in my opinion a lot easier on the wallet. I was able to get most of the washi that I bought with a 40% off coupon. They come in tubes with 9+ rolls.
I like the tubes that already come with color combinations that match. It makes it easier to put together a great layout. As you can see there are various sizes of washi tape included.
I have done a few layouts with only one kind of washi tape. There was this blue tape that I really really liked (below) but nothing else went well with it. I think it still looks great. Too many colors are sometimes too distracting.
And another one that I had to do already for Thanksgiving. A few weeks ahead but so much fun to put together. Can’t wait to do a Christmas theme in December.
You can see that I cut the tape in to flags or weekend banners. Sometimes it is a bit time consuming but worth it.
