Hey everyone! It’s Lori, marketing manager here at Simple Stories. It’s been a busy week for all of us in the office, because all of our kids are heading back to school this week. While it’s somewhat sad to have to say goodbye to summer fun, back-to-school is a great time to get organized, set some goals, and start new schedules.
My daughter is a busy 9th grader who plays volleyball and softball. Her life is pretty busy now, and she needs a way to keep her assignment due-dates and sports schedules in order. As a fun first day of school gift, I put together a planner for her using our Good Vibes 16 Month Spiral Planner, Seasons Sticker Tablet and some Modern Meadow washi tape from our Reset Girl collection.
A spiral planner is a great option for her, because it’s compact and can slide right in her backpack! Our spiral planners already come with 2 sticker sheets to highlight to-dos, appointments, etc. for her, so I decided to use our adorable Seasons Sticker Tablet to add seasonal fun to each of the monthly pages. Each page of this tablet has a different theme, and it’s filled with gorgeous designs!
Creating the gift was so easy and quick! I gathered all of her schedules from her sports, opened her school calendar online and sat at my desk and created for her. There are places in the planner for her to write down her goals, appointments, to-dos and add her own flair! The planner turned out perfectly!
Finally, as a nice surprise at the back of the spiral planner (and a great reminder to keep planning!), I added a Good Things Black Planner Decal on the back page and tucked the Seasons Sticker Tablet in the back pocket so she could use the extra stickers when she wanted.
The planner turned out so cute, now I want my very own! J
Good luck to everyone returning to school and starting a new year! If you would like a closer look at our spiral planners so you can see all of the beautiful designs inside, be sure to check out the spiral planner tour we did on the blog last week!
