My goal this year is to make it look like Father Christmas threw up on every planner I own, but keep it on a budget. For that reason I’m hunting down the cutest free and nearly-free printable stickers and doodling Christmasy inserts. Plus, I’ve made a free printable sidebar tracker for you!
A Very Merry Planner Christmas
I’ve been decorating more than one page per week. Phew, glad that’s out there. I’m so happy with my new Forever Planner that I’ve been going insert nuts. Doodling and no-white-space planning on graph paper, stickers and more stickers, and washi galore. This year I’ve made three planners very very merry.
I may have commitment issues. At least I’m sticking to one binder now. Progress.
December Doodles & Sticker Picks
I went to buy beautiful, sparkly, Christmasy washi tape from Michaels this week. But holy hell it was $15 per package! Hey man, I love stickers. But I don’t LOVE stickers.
I did find some adorable printable washi on Etsy by designby2 for $1.85. That’s what I’m talkin’ ’bout. Since I was there, I splurged (definition is relative) on a couple sticker sheets for $1.90. I used these to create this no white space checklist page for the right side of my weekly spread this week.
I’ve been into one page plans. A week at-a-glance with my schedule on the left and checklists and daily to-do on the right. Then I don’t become annoyed with the binder rings mid-week. Resting my wrist on the hump is just awful. #firstworldproblems
My gorgeous binder is the Hello Forever Planner in Melon from Studio Calico. Yeah, the rings bump my wrist on Wednesday, but it’s so cute that it’s worth the pain. Just look at those polka dots.
On the left, I used my newest Holiday Doodle printable planner pages with some washi from Michaels and a bit of coloring to track my schedule and appointments. As if planning wasn’t a gift in itself, now it’s like opening up a Christmas present every time I sit down to see what chores I have to get done.
Ahhhh taking out the trash is just lovely now.

December Free Printables
Planner Addition Kit – Monthly Set Christmas with printable washi
I’m so excited to use this kit. I printed out three pages before I ran out of ink. Gah! There are eight pages total in this Free Printable Kit. EIGHT! So cute, with functional stickers, headers, and decorative boxes.

Free Printable Monthly Sidebar Tracker
I’ve been using Vintage Glam Studio’s printables on weekly spreads for over two years. The combination on each sheet is functional with enough decorative elements to make it fun. It’s been a couple months since I’ve printed from Vintage Glam Studio so I’m excited to go back.
I had such a hard time just sticking to one kit this week, although I absolutely love this one from Vintage Glam Studio. I used almost all of the stickers in this kit plus another and some leftovers from earlier in the month.
I ran out of yellow ink this week after printing six sheets on plain copy paper. So the pink and blue stickers from lifewithmayra (no longer available) are actually Christmas themed green and red on the website. Whoopsie. Still happy with how it came out.
