One of the most requested things to make this month was a monthly kit! I made a couple, and I love the way they turned out. I used the same patterns used in my October colors and Autumn Spice kit. I only made this for the Happy Planner purely because it’s the only planner I own and can measure. However, if you own another planner and would like to send me measurements, please do so, and I will add that planner to the lineup. Monthly kits can be very particular since it will be very obvious if the boxes don’t line up correctly. However, this is just a starting point, and I can hopefully expand from here!
I tend to not use my monthly view for decorating. I used to add labels, but I found it was easier to just write in with some colored pens, and I think it still looks really good. For that reason, I wanted to keep this simple. Obviously, you won’t be doing a no-white space monthly view, but if there’s something here I’m missing, let me know!

Note for all users: I got word that they weren’t cutting correctly on the Silhouette despite the cut lines being in all the right places. I contacted Silhouette America, and they weren’t very specific. If you have any issues with the files, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org, and I can send you a new version of the page to test out. I don’t like that these issues are happening, but there’s just not much we can do!
How to use printables:
Click here to see the sticker paper that I use. This was recommended on Facebook, and I would highly suggest you check this out! It’s a great price for a great value and quantity of sticker paper!
Ranked in order of Difficulty (1-easy, 4-hard)
- Silhouette: This is by far the easiest way and that would be to print out the stickers on a sheet of sticker paper, and then run it through a cutting machine like the Silhouette Cameo. I have preset the cut lines in the studio3 file, but I would recommend double checking to make sure the stickers are going to be cut the way you want them to.
- Box Cutter/ X-acto Knife: Print out the stickers on sticker sheets. Using a sharp cutter and a ruler, gently press against the paper to create a cut through only the top layer of the sticker sheet. Peel back to use. Get a parent’s help if you are young as this can be very dangerous!
- Scissors: Print stickers on sticker sheet and cut out the various shapes with a pair of scissors. Peel the backing off to use.
- Stickerless decorating: This is by far the most tedious, but it definitely works. It doesn’t look as nice or glossy as stickers do but its a way to decorate a planner without purchasing sticker paper. Check out my blog post on how to do it!
For each printable page will find at least 2 files: a studio3 (Silhouette) and a pdf. In the studio3 file, I have already set the cut lines for you, but you should definitely check before you print to make sure that everything is the way you want it. I tried to preset the cutlines and registration marks for all of them, but just in case I missed one, you’ll want to set to default marks. Make sure that you have “cut edge” selected and that you have chosen the correct material. Sometimes I’ll forget to do this step when formatting page! Just an FYI, I don’t do offsets on my stickers (except for some decorative stickers), meaning that the Silhouette cuts out the outline of the shape. The reason for this is that I also have pdfs for people who don’t own Silhouettes who are cutting them by hand. If I do offsets, the boxes will be too big.
IMPORTANT When printing from a pdf, make sure that you have it set to a zoom of 100%, and ensure that you have selected PRINT ACTUAL SIZE instead of the default “shrink oversized pages” option. If you don’t do this, your stickers may be slightly smaller than I’ve sized them to be.
If you have any suggestions for printable stickers, leave them here, and I will get back to you ASAP!
