Sometimes I wonder if my planner obsession is a bit too much. I’m not the most organized person, so it seems a bit weird sometimes. Planners are my one grasp at trying to get organized, though. I can see at a glance what needs to happen each day. It seems like the longer I use my planner, the more I change the way I use it. This month, I’m experimenting with time blocking. So far, my method is pretty lazy. Like I’ll plan to write in the morning and then after lunch, I work on a project. To make the process go a bit easier, I made some Happy Planner stickers to share. They fit the big size, in case you’re wondering.
Since I’m experimenting with time blocking, I knew that for this month, I wanted my happy planner stickers to be more functional. I want to be able to list out the time and color code activities in my planner.
I also made a lot of list stickers. I’m a list maker, so this works well for me. The last page is full of fun stickers.

Instructions for Printable Stickers
You have 2 options for printing:
- Print on sticker paper. It’s just using regular paper.
- Print on regular copy paper and make them into stickers with a sticker maker.
Using a Sticker Maker
I use the Xyron Creative Station, which I really like. Xyron also makes smaller machines that are disposable, but can only handle paper up to 5″ or 7″. I wanted a machine that was able to use whole sheets of paper. Plus, I love that you can change out the sticker cartridge to do laminate without electricity. I volunteer at my daughter’s school and the lamination process is serious stuff. So, I appreciate how simple my machine is.
“Machine” isn’t quite the right word because these xyron machines aren’t electrical. There’s a crank that you use to move the paper through the machine.
- Open the front of the machine.
- Slide the paper in. Move it to the left side.
- Use the crank to roll the paper through.
- If doing more that 1 sheet of paper, I leave a small gap, but try to keep the consecutive papers pretty close to each other.
- When the paper is done, use the paper cutter to cut the sticker paper layer.
- Take the paper out and rub it down to make sure the paper is secured to the sticker paper.
- Remove the clear plastic layer and use scissors to cut the stickers apart. I don’t mind this process, but it takes a while. I hope to offer cut files next month.
- The sticker paper back comes off pretty easily if you bend the corner back.
