American Crafts: Planning for the New Year

I love the beginning of a new year! I love re-evaluating how I spend my time and making goals for the coming months. A part of my process is setting up my planner. Next year I am using the Black & White Striped Planner by American Crafts. (There are other designs available, too! I will link all of them at the bottom of this post)
I love the size of these planners, since I mostly use the monthly pages in my planning. The larger format allows me lots of delicious space to work, plan, and decorate!
Today, I wanted to share the first four months of my planner with you. I used a variety of the new Sticker Books by American Crafts to decorate them and they turned out so cute! I can’t wait to use them in the coming months!
JANUARY

I love that the layout in this planner is basic black and white. It allows me to add lots of color with the products of my choice. For each monthly spread, I added washi tape across the top and bottom of the pages for color. I then used the month stickers from the Amy Tangerine Sticker Book to make the months POP!

The constellation washi tape on the January spread is from the Dear Lizzy Stargazer collection. It reminds me of a gorgeous clear, winter night sky!
I especially love the wood slice sticker marking my wedding anniversary. I added the pink heart sticker with our initials “carved” into it.

For the rest of the elements on the page, I used stickers from the One Canoe Two Sticker Book.

FEBRUARY
February gets its flair from the Shimelle Sticker Book.  I used the pink washi tape with black hearts from the Creative Devotion Washi Tape Set #2.

I love the florals with their gold foil in this sticker book. What girl doesn’t like their projects to shimmer and shine, right?!

MARCH
March is decorated with the rainbow colors of the Amy Tangerine Sticker Book. By March the birds start making their way back to our part of the state as the days begin to warm back up.

APRIL
I loved the softer colors of the Dear Lizzy Sticker Book for my April monthly spread.

The rabbit sticker was the perfect choice to mark Easter Sunday and the beginning of Spring Break. Those gorgeous gold foil letter stickers are from the One Canoe Two Sticker Book.
I also loved adding those bright, colorful dot stickers across the top to mark the different days of the week.
