FREE Printable: Monthly Habit Tracker & No Spend Stickers

Welcome back to my blog! It's March and I've decided that means I'm going to do a no-spend this month. I'm attempting a no spend month on planner and craft goods.

So far so good! I decided to create an easy visual to help me track my progress, and I've decided to share that with you. Check out the PDF and/or JPEG below for a basic 35 day habit tracker and no-spend icons.

You can print out the habit tracker on some paper and punch it and add it directly to any planner or you can print it out on sticker paper and add it to a notes page or month ahead type pages in your planners. Then print out the icons on sticker paper and cut them out. Stick one a day for the days that you actually stick to your no-spend habit this month.

At the end of the month you'll have an easy visual to look at and admire your hard work. And if this month doesn't go so well, that's ok, don't beat yourself up too much. Pick yourself up, dust yourself off and try it again next month. You can do it! And if you need any help or support feel free to comment below or join my Facebook Group to be part of a community of like-minded planner addicts.

Here's some more specific tips on how to use my Free printables:

Instructions for Use:
  1. Download and Print: print it out on the highest quality.
  2. Print it out on high quality thick paper or sticker paper and then cut it out. Use scissors or your Gyro cut or use a cutting machine: Cricut or Silhouette Portrait or Cameo.
  3. If you have a Silhouette (or Cricut machine) then open the JPEG file within the program (PDF will not open in Silhouette) and create cut lines around the elements and set the cut settings to sticker paper in order to get a perfectly kiss-cutted sticker.
  4. Stick the stickers in your planner and have fun!

Simple Stories Carpe Diem Planner Review & Setup

I recently bought a new planner and I'm so in love with it I feel the need to share in the gorgeousness and functionality of it. I bought the Simple Stories Carpe Diem in Persimmon designed by The Reset Girl.


I got this on a good deal from Indigo online and it's an A5 binder planner that comes with 12 months of undated monthly and weekly inserts. So I decided to setup it up to start using in March 2017. It is going to become a more functional planner for me.

Mostly I'm a decorative planner but I find myself gravitating towards a functional planner lately in order to keep my work life and side hustle a little most balanced. I'm looking to this new planner to help me with that.


The monthly section has layouts for general tracking which I plan to use for health tracking and there is also a section for goals tracking which I think will be great for breaking down my overall yearly goals into more manageable pieces throughout the year.

I also bought the clear date and header stickers from Simple stories and some notes pages to help add to my journey to becoming more of a functional planner. This is just the start but I can't wait to see where this gorgeous planner takes me.

The weekly inserts are setup in a vertical layout and I love that: it's definitely how my brain works. I'm really happy with the overall design of this planner and I can't wait to add more fun things to it. For now I've some basics fun things into the planner to add my own personality but I plan on adding more in the future.


If you're interested in picking up this planner then check out here on Blitsy. You can find this one and many other Carpe Diem Planners by Simple Stories as well as many other planners, crafting supplies and accessories online at Blitsy.

I have lots of stickers and die cuts and embellishments and other fun things that I've already collected from Simple Stories and the Reset Girl that I can't wait to break out of storage and start using in this planner. I think this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship between myself and this Carpe Diem planner. Enjoy! :)

I recommend using the Silhouette Brand Sticker Paper.

FREE Printable: Absolutely Fabulous

Today I have another movie-related printable for you all. I'm very excited for this one. I know Star Trek: Beyond is coming out today and as much as I'm very excited for that movie and I'm a big Sci Fi fan and a Trekkie, however, I've already seen a couple great Star Trek printables out there. So instead of Star Trek I give you another movie that is coming out today: Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie! Anyone else used to watch that absolutely ridiculous show that is Ab Fab? I have fond memories of watching this hilarious show with my mother and sister and just laughing our asses off. This is British comedy at it's best. Enjoy Sweetie Darlings! ;)

These are sized for the classic Happy Planner. I'm a huge HP fan and it's sometimes hard to find stickers made for the HP instead of the EC. I hope you enjoy and please share on social media and leave comments below of your feedback. Let me know what else you'd like to see for the future. Check out the preview image below and click the links to download: I've included both the PDF and the Silhouette cut files.

  2. Print it out on high quality thick paper or sticker paper and then cut it out. Use scissors or your Gyro cut or use a cutting machine: Cricut or Silhouette Portrait or Cameo.

If you're using sticker paper then set the cut settings to sticker paper and send it to your silhouette. The machine does all the work for you.
