So I am currently in the process of updating and modifying my personal website for my Tarot business and I thought "I bet the blog would love to see how I project plan"! So here is the way I project plan for big projects, my set up for specifically the readings I'm hoping to offer. I use stickers and washi to keep me involved and interested as planning is not my strong suit.
I cannot stop with these rainbow basics sheets. They are always my go to for things like this, you could equally grab the pastel or the neutral, if that's your fancy. As for paper I'm just using the standard Kikki K. paper that comes in the Personal Planner.
I started out with using the page flag half boxes as each reading's header. They are perfect for this or even important information you absolutely cannot forget.
Next I skipped a few lines so I could write about the feel I was hoping to capture and such. Here I placed a normal header to mark out to do's for each reading type.
Every to do list needs checklist flags, I literally could not live without these. Underneath that I just had to use the glitter headers for a notes section so I could jot down important notes or note down what pages I need to look at in certain books.
I only needed one last thing on this page and that was to use these little dollar sign icons to make a section for pricing ideas. It took me only a few minutes to do this page, but it will make doing this drudgery task so much more fun.
I did this for several more pages so I could just sit down when I have a moment and write down what I needed to achieve for each reading before I launch my new business and website.
I hope this was useful and helpful to anyone trying to plan a project. If you use any of PopFizzPaper's stickers in project planning, I'd love to see. Tag me on Instagram @brooklynne_michelle or @popfizzpaper .
Hello everyone! It’s Jennifer again, and today I’m going to share how I store all my leftover kit stickers! Without good organization, sticker leftovers can get overwhelming. Either you’ll spend a ton of time looking for the sticker you want, or you’ll forget about them entirely and waste your money. Popfizzpaper kits have such an awesome selection of stickers that even if you’re a no-white-space planner, you’ll still have leftover stickers! When I started planning, I used to take the leftover kit stickers and paperclip the kit together and shove the whole kit into a plastic pencil case. Where they’d sit. Unused. What a waste of super cute stickers!! Then one day, when I was at Michaels, I saw plastic greeting card storage box, and this storage system was the result!
First, I went through my kit leftovers and decided what categories I wanted to sort them into. Then, I made folders! I thought folders would be better suited for this type of sticker storage than simple dividers. I had seen people using dividers to file their stickers in a photo storage box, but cutting up kit leftovers results in pretty little sticker pieces, and I was afraid they would get lost and unused with dividers.
To make the folders, I simply used a sheet of letter-sized cardstock folded in half. For the tabs, I used the Popfizzpaper tab stickers. They’re PERFECT for this project! I made a tab for all the types of stickers I wanted to file: half boxes, icons, headers, etc.
Now, all I have to do is cut the sheets apart at the end of the week and file the stickers away in their own little folder! So now the next time I need a purple habit tracker to pull the whole week together, I know exactly where to look instead of having to go through all my leftovers by kit until I come across the right sticker!
How do you store your kit leftovers? I’d love to see! Tag me on Instagram @paprikaplans or share your ideas in our Popfizzpaper Fans Facebook group! Happy Planning!
Hello everyone! It’s Jennifer here with a super quick, super functional personal sized dashboard folder for your planner! For this project, you will need:
The heavy cardstock contents sheet from your Popfizzpaper kit
Deco stickers from Colors of the Wind kit
Let’s get started! The contents sheet is not quite long enough to be a full sized dashboard turned on its side (landscape), but it is very close and it will accommodate all six punches in a personal sized planner. Trim the length of the contents sheet to 7.5 inches. Next, holding the contents sheet with the long edge towards you, measure and score a line 3.75 inches in, and fold carefully along that line. This will be the outside spine of your folder.
Unfold the contents sheet and cut a line about half way down the fold. Next, you will need to decide which side you would like your folder on. I chose to have my folder on the referse side of the dashboard, so I cut out the upper right quadrant of the paper.
Next, I used the Popfizzpaper kit washi tape to cover up the text on the inside of my folder that would show. I also used a strip of washi tape at the bottom of the folder and folded the washi to stick to the other side to close the folder.
I used a quote sticker from the deco sheet from the kit on the folder side and put it in my personal sized planner. It’s perfect for storing business cards, receipts, coupons... or who am I kidding? more stickers.
We’re not done with this dashboard yet! I mounted the Popfizzpaper kit sticky notes to the other side! I also decorated it with a quote sticker from the deco sticker sheet. How cute is that?!
Sticky notes and a pocket! Could a dashboard possibly be any more functional... or adorable?! This kit is perfect for fall! If you missed out on this kit, some of the pieces will be available in the shop for a limited time. What’s your favorite thing you’ve made with the contents sheet in your Popfizzpaper kit? I’d love to see! Tag me on Instagram @paprikaplans or post it in the Popfizzpaper Fans Facebook group!
Hey, everyone! I'm back with another traveler's notebook post! Can you tell I've been obsessed with mine?! Today, I'm going to show you how I made an adorable little folder for my pocket Chic Sparrow traveler's notebook! All you need is some GORGEOUS double- sided paper- I'm using this watercolor one from the PFP planner kit.
The first thing I did was fold my paper in half length-wise and then trim it to 8 inches. I then folded in the bottom part 2.5 inches so that the height of the folder is 5.5 inches.
To make it look a little more "folder-like" I cut out two triangles from the center to make it easier to pull things in and out.
Next up, I folded and trimmed the sides of each flap so that the width of the folder came out to 3.5 inches.
All that's left to do now is just tape or glue everything down and just neatening the edges.
Now, you can just pop that bad boy in your traveler's notebook and stuff it with whatever you wish!
Hope you guys enjoyed this post and if you want to see more traveler's notebook themed posts, let me know down below!
I am so excited to show you ladies the new Monthly Kit from Pop Fizz Paper. Instead of my usual just written post I did an extensive plan with me video so you can see just how awesome these kits are! Let’s jump right in.
As I gathered my supplies here is what I used to do this plan with me and to get my month of November ready to go!
I absolutely love planning out my month it is one of my favorite things to do. Here are my Steps that I go through when I plan out my month.
Step 1: Pre plan with sticky notes I use 1 sticky note per type of thing for example I have 1 sticky note for each category (movie releases, podcast record dates, blog post dates, school/important dates, birthdays)
Step 2: I always start with my header stickers
Step 3: Next I cover up the dates not in the month I am currently working with
Step 4: Side bar time!
Step 5: I just start working through the sticky notes one at a time picking which labels or stickers I want to use as I go
Step 6: Once I am done working through my sticky notes then I go back and lay down my date dots!
To see all of this in action watch my super overly detailed video below!
After all was said and done here is the finished product before the pen and after the pen. I used the Purple Ink Joy Gel that came with the Pop Fizz Paper planner kit.
I used pretty much everything from the kit there was just a few random things left but I bet I could find a way to use all of them! Here is what was left.
I can not wait to use these kits every month and I am so glad these came out now. Currently the kits are only made for the Erin Condren but soon they will be available for Happy Planners and I can not wait since I am making the switch for next year!
Do you plan your months? Then it is time to try these brand new amazing kits!

Hey everyone- Brittany here! Today I wanted to talk about the beauty themed stickers offered here at PopFizzPaper. One of my favorite things about the PopFizzPaper brand is the wide variety of stickers they put out and their ability to appeal to all types of planner girls! They’ve always offered a few beauty related stickers but several new designs have been released and I’m head over heels in love with them! So much so that I wanted to spotlight them in today’s post.
I’d say it’s a relatively common question amongst planner girls on how to use the monthly layout of the planner. As someone who doesn’t have kids, doesn’t need a planner for work, and doesn’t travel a lot my monthly layouts are rarely filled in with more than a few seasonal decorations. As I started using these PopFizzPaper beauty stickers I realized the personal care and beauty routines I try to keep up with can be tracked quite efficiently on my monthly spread!
Because I try to only shop sales and coupons I like writing down when semi-annual sales are going on, rewards points can be used, or when certain coupons will expire. The notes section of the monthly layout is great for marking promotions going on for an entire month.
This is also where I will track a task that just needs to be done at some point in the month but not on a specific day- like making sure I replace the brushhead on my Clarisonic. If I’m planning on actually visiting a store instead of just ordering online, I will layer a shopping bag with the other sticker I’m using.
My day to day hair routine is pretty low maintenance so it’s a great reminder before special events or anything involving photos to remind myself to take extra time to blow out and style my hair.
I used to be terrible at remembering to wash my makeup brushes and sponges. I still don’t do at as much as I probably should but I feel better knowing it at least happens twice a month. It’s a big task to clean them all so I break it up each week. Every other Saturday I will wash my beauty blenders. In between I will wash my eye and face brushes. Writing this out in my planner helps me remember which brushes need to be washed next and breaking up the task keeps me from feeling overwhelmed #firstworldproblems
Other tasks that are great for the monthly spread are hair and nail appointments! Those often require scheduling farther in advance than a weekly spread so as soon as the appointment is made I mark it here and can refer back to it when it’s time to put it down for that week.
I hope I was able to give you some good ideas for using not only your monthly spread but also for keeping track of those fun (and often pesky) beauty tasks. How do you track personal care and beauty routines? Have you purchased any of these stickers from PopFizzPaper? Feel free to tag me on Instagram @thoughtsfromthemrs so I can see how you stay on top of it all!

As a few of you may know I'm a trained Makeup Artist and work freelance directly with clients. You also probably know I'm obsessed with my traveler's notebooks. I'm currently in the pretty Lyra and Co one but I also have leather Foxy Fix. I'm starting to hit spring down here, and thus my busy wedding season coming up. One thing that was clear to me was I needed an notebook dedicated to meeting with my clients. So I gathered up supplies from the stunning Beauty Babe kit.
Soon as I saw this kit I knew I needed to do something for my Makeup work. Its palette is soft and gentle for my clients but not so soft as to feel unlike me. My first thing was to cover the kraft brown cover.
This X's and O's paper was just the perfect choice. It was not too busy yet had a fun design, it would also look good to my mostly bridal clients. I wanted to add some visual interest so I added the cutoff strip flipped to show the blush rose pattern along the top third of the cover. Next all I needed was one of the sticky notes which made a great title plate. I had one set of the gold glitter X and O stickers from the decorative sheet of the kit and they finished the cover.
Now for the insides I started with the first page. Using the left over bottom washi from the kit I cut it into a large page flag and added another decorative sticker. Real simple. This is the perfect page for me to jot down products that clients have specifically requested. This way it's easy for me to flip to and find what I need to order.
Next was to work on the Index page. I started with some bottom decoration, several layered strips of paper in a neat design to draw your attention. Then my favourite sticker in the entire set, simple yet perfect statement.
That done I wanted to highlight the very top left page with the word Index. Using two washi strips from the left overs of a kit leaving a space in the center for my title added some visual interest. I just had, HAD, to use this washi. So that completed the page.
All I had left to do now was put it in my Traveler's Notebook and head off to meet with clients. How are you using your papers? Feel free to tag either @brooklynne_michelle or @popfizzpaper on Instagram to show me, or pop over to our facebook group and join the fun.

Hello all! It’s Jennifer again, and this week I want to share with y’all how I made this cute makeup brush cup with the October Popfizzpaper kit papers and stickers!
For this craft, you will need:
Popfizzpaper kit papers
Container to decoupage (I upcycled a travel sized chip canister)
ModPodge (or similar... I hear a 1:1 ratio of Elmer’s glue and water works, but I have not tried this)
Scissors or paper trimmer
Newspaper to cover your work area (this gets messy!)
For this craft, I decided to use an empty travel sized chip canister and it’s the perfect size to corral my makeup brushes and other essentials! I just made sure the canister was clean before I started. The first step is cutting your paper down to size. I wrapped the paper around the canister and marked where I needed to cut lightly with a pencil. I made sure to have a slight overlap wrapping the paper around the canister to ensure complete coverage. Repeat this process for the length of the paper, but this time you do not want any overlap.
Get your foam brush and apply an even layer of ModPodge to the reverse side of your paper. Carefully apply the paper to the canister. Paper tends to get wrinkly when it’s wet, so you can use the brayer to carefully smooth any wrinkles. Once the paper was glued onto the canister, I added some decorative Popfizzpaper stickers!
Adding ModPodge over top of the paper and stickers will make the finished makeup cup more durable. One word of warning though: the color from the Popfizzpaper stickers (or any inkjet printed stickers) will bleed unless you carefully dab the ModPodge over the stickered areas. If you simply brush the glue over stickers, they WILL bleed. You also run the risk of the sticker paper tearing if you brush the stickers. I achieved the best results from dabbing glue over the sticker, then wiping any discoloration that ended up on the foam brush off on some newspaper.
Once you have applied one layer of ModPodge to your cup, let it dry. The glue will dry clear. I applied one more coat of ModPodge after this. You do not have to be as careful applying the glue during the second coat because the first coat sealed the stickers. Now you can focus on nice even brush strokes. Once that dries, go ahead and fill it up with your makeup brushes or pencils!

Hello everyone! It’s Jennifer here, and today I’d like to share a fun, quick, and easy birthday calendar insert I made for my Happy Planner! I prefer to use checklist flag stickers instead of the full box checklists on my weekly spreads, so I love finding creative ways to use up my sticker stash! I had a perpetual calendar from Erin Condren that I used to list important birthdays and anniversaries, but I didn’t like it very much because I didn’t have a ton of birthdays to list. Every month I had to remember where I put the thing, and most of it looked pretty blank. So I thought this would be a perfect use for my extra full box checklist stickers!
For this project, I used:
Happy Planner sized full box checklist stickers left over from the Rio kit, the Daydreams and Ice Creams kit, and the Harbor Dreams kit.
January thru June Monthly Header Stickers (DA20-1)
July thru December Monthly Header Stickers (DA20-2)
Happy Planner Punch
First, I cut down my cardstock to fit my Happy Planner, or approximately 9 ¼ x 7 inches, and punched it with the Happy Planner punch. Next, I put down my full box stickers, 6 on each side of the page. I could have gone with colors that matched my cardstock better, but I thought it would be fun to try and pick colored checklists that went along with each month: icy blue for January; pink for February; shamrock green for March; etc.
Don’t forget to label your boxes! These monthly header labels are perfect for this project, plus you’ll have plenty left over for other things! As a finishing touch, I added some confetti and “celebrate” washi from my stash to make things a little more festive.
Now all you have to do is fill out the calendar! I was able to transfer all of my important birthdays and anniversaries from my perpetual calendar to my insert, so now I’ll always have the information with me!
What is your favorite unconventional sticker use? I’d love to see! Tag me on Instagram @paprikaplans or share it on our Popfizzpaper Fans Facebook group! Happy planning, everyone!

It's back to school season! It's such a bittersweet time of the year with summer ending and classes starting, but here's a way to look forward to it! I'm going to show you how I use PFP stickers to take notes while studying. Not only does it make my notes prettier to look at, but I find it to actually help me learn the material better as well! You also don't need a thousand stickers- think simple so that it's easy on your eyes and not too time consuming!
I take my study notes in my Chic Sparrow Odyssey traveler's notebook in the extra wide size. My inserts are the large Moleskine Cahier notebooks. I decided to use my pastel sticker collection from PFP (it's my fave!).
The first thing I do when I begin my notes is give my page a title. I like to use some pretty lettering to make it stand out at the top of the page. Once I have my title, I use one of these tab stickers on the edge of my page so that when I'm flipping through my notes, I can easily turn to this important topic.
The next thing I like to do is make a subheading. It's important to break down your ideas into smaller chunks so that your brain can easily process all of the information. I used a banner doodle to indicate my subheading (it doesn't have to be perfect). I used the halfboxes with flags to further break down the material.
In the spaces next to the halfboxes, I filled in small details of each pertaining topic using bullet points. I left some room on the bottom so that I could add to this topic once I attend the lecture. In this section, I can put in any notes that my professor highlights.
I try not to overwhelm my pages with stickers because then it defeats the purpose of making my notes easy to read. Here's the final look:
I really hope you guys enjoyed these quick tips on sprucing up your notes! Best of luck on the new school year- you got this <3
