Friday was a very happy day for me since I got some happy mail - my very first Erin Condren Life Planner! What's so special about a planner? Usually not much really. Except the Erin Condren Life Planner is no typical planner. It's a bit on the pricey side, but it's a great gift for that girl going into 12th grade or their senior year in college. Of course, you can also just buy it for yourself which is exactly what I did, and I used Swagbucks to buy it! Check out Swagbucks here:
Also, this year, Erin Condren changed to a thicker more premium paper than they have used in the past. The paper is FSC-certified meaning from well-maintained forests. The paper is 80# text weight with even thicker card stock for the tabs pages. And guess what! It's made in the U.S. of A.!
And to tell you a little more about these beautiful planners, let me start with all the options you have to customize your Life Planner:
- custom interchangeable covers - with the option to personalize it with your name or sentiment!
- 4 coil colors: platinum, black, rose gold, gold
- horizontal, vertical, and hourly layout options
- colorful and neutral inside graphics options
- 12 month or 18 month
I chose the platinum coil in the horizontal neutral layout with 12 months. This is what the pictures depict so if you'd like to see the other options, please feel free to take a look a look around the website here! (Pssst... if you use this link to sign up, you'll get $10 off your first purchase :) )
You can also get a whole bunch of extra goodies to go along with your Life Planner - such as stickers, markers, bookmarks, dashboards, etc. I personally use Foray pens (as mentioned in my last post) since they're my absolute favorite since I write really tiny and the thin lines are perfect for me, but Erin Condren has really colorful pens, too. The pens I use don't even shadow through the page (meaning you can't see it on the other side of the page). So, for me, pens will be Foray. But stickers... STICKERS!!!!!!!!!! Guys, I'm in love with their stickers! They have beautiful watercolor stickers and so many different patterns and quotes to choose from. Stickers will definitely be in my next purchase! Oh, and washi tape ;)
Anyway, let's get started! This year's design is called Painted Petals - and it's stunning! Flip through the image gallery and read the captions for more information.
*Note: All lines are made from tiny dots instead of straight lines.
Anyway, I really hope you like this post! If you think you'd like to try out an Erin Condren Life Planner for yourself, head over to the website now. I mean, of course you want one! Who wouldn't?
Happy Planning! :)
