Removable Sticky Note Dashboard with Xyron

Katie King CircleHello Everyone! Like most people who have planners, I love sticky notes! To be honest, I have always loved sticky notes and have used them in my planners for years. However, until recently, I had never heard of a sticky note dashboard (crazy, I know). Since my planner has a spine that can’t be opened, adding a ‘’pre-made’’ sticky dashboard is sort-of out of the question. So, I decided to make my own and that is what I will be showing you today!

Today, I am going to show you how to make a Removable Sticky Note Dashboard using Xyron! If you are unfamiliar with Xyron they are a company that creates products to enhance and protect your handmade creations. Some of the products that they are best known for are their sticker makers, creative stations, and tape runners. In today’s project, I will be using their tape runner.

This particular sticky note dashboard that I am creating, was designed to go into my Paper House Productions 18-Month Stargazer Planner. Like every Paper House planner, the 18-Month Stargazer Planner is beautifully put together and includes a variety of things. For example, quotes, pockets, several different places to take notes, stickers, etc. Also, if are not a fan of the ”galaxy look”, Paper House has a bunch of planner options ranging from florals to Wonder Women!

To create your own Removable Sticky Note Dashboard, you would do the following:

Step 1

Step 1: Cut a piece of scrapbooking paper that fits on the inside of your planner. If you are using the 18-Month Stargazer Planner you will want to cut a piece of paper that is 6 ½ inches wide by 9 inches tall. The paper I used for my planner came from the Color Washed 12’’ Paper Pad.

Step 2

Step 2: Grab all of your sticky note pads and lay them out onto your piece of scrapbooking paper. Once you are happy with the layout, flip each sticky note pad over and apply some adhesive to the back using your Xyron Tape Runner. Then press your sticky note pads into place.

Note: If you are wanting to use a big sticky note pad (like the blue pad in the corner) you will want to remove half of the sticky notes from the pad, so the sticky note dashboard doesn’t add more bulk to your planner.

Step 3

Step 3: Lay your sticky note dashboard onto a planner page that you don’t mind covering up. Then grab a piece of washi tape (I’m using the wide tape from the Stargazer Washi Tape Set) and apply half of it the top of the sticky note dashboard, then fold over the half of the washi tape onto your planner page.

To further decorate your sticky note dashboard, you can apply more washi tape around your sticky notes. For my sticky note dashboard, I used the thin gold tape from the Wine Washi Tape Set to outline my sticky notes.

Once you are happy with how your sticky note dashboard looks, you are ready to start using it!

I love how this removable sticky note dashboard turned out! Using the Xyron Tape Runner really made the whole process go by very quickly. In terms of time, I had this dashboard created within 30 minutes. It probably should have taken me less time than that, but I kept changing the layout of my sticky notes!

Speaking of sticky notes, you may have noticed that I decorated my sticky notes. To do this I used the Stargazer Faux Enamel Sticker and Stargazer Life Organized Micro Stickers, which match back to the 18-Month Stargazer Planner. This is totally optional, but I thought it made the sticky notes look a little cuter.

Celestial Themed Planner Spread

Caitlyn Storm Circle

Happy first day of spring, everyone! It’s me Caitlyn, back to show you another planner spread.

I don’t know about you, but I am super excited for spring to finally arrive. We have had our weather range from absolutely glorious to down right frigid in the north east. I’m hoping that the official start of spring starts to bring in some beautiful warm weather.

One of my new favorite things to do is partake in astrophotography. Unfortunately it has just been too cold to go outside late at night to take photos of the stars! The best way to fix this problem? Bring the stars inside (and to my planner)! BestIdeaEver. Creating a celestial themed planner spread is the perfect way to fix my issue!

In order to best showcase this spread, I decided to share this spread as a “before the pen” shot. Adding in pen would have made this spread extremely distracting in these shots!

Putting together this spread was extremely easy. I took a sheet of black cardstock, cut it to the correct size of the boxes and used a tape runner to adhere it to the top set of boxes. Obviously I couldn’t stop the spread right there so I went in and used the brand new Stargazer washi set to add just a little bit of decoration. Obviously I couldn’t stop there – there was a huge section that just needed to be decorated!

I used two different faux enamel sticker packs for my decorations. I used the Stargazer Faux enamels and the Celestial Faux Enamel Stickers. The combination of these two sets worked wonderfully. Celestial added beautiful constellation stickers and the beautiful quote highlighted and the Stargazer set added bold stars and decorative crystals. To help fill out my own personal night sky, I enlisted the help of additional star stickers from the Stargazer micro sticker set.

Piecing together a planner spread doesn’t need to be complicated at all! Paper House Productions makes things very easy since each set has multiple coordinating pieces! I know when you first start out with decorative planning it can be really intimidating, but don’t be afraid!

I hope that my little bit of the galaxy inspired you to create your own little version in your planner!

See you all next time!

XOXO,
Caitlyn
