This is my very first subscription within The Planner Addict collection. I love ordering stickers from Etsy and I’m hoping this subscription keeps me from ordering a billion different sticker kits each month. (Key word, hope!) I’m already taken back by the beautifully designed product/insert card. It says the theme for May is “Creativity” and they want to see what we create with the stickers this month. Use the hashtag #PLANNERADDICTSTICKERBOX on your social media accounts so show everyone what you made.
“I Have a Sticker For That” – paper bag
All the stickers are in this cute double lined bag. I wasn’t sure if some considered the bag as part of the subscription or not, but it is still in perfect condition to reuse and/or gift out again.
Here’s a quick look at everything included this month. It looks like every kit came individually wrapped except the one on the left. So let’s start there.
I had never seen colorable planner stickers until today. I’ve already added this shop to my Etsy Favorites for future purchases! LOL. Though this shop did not provide at least one full sticker sheet, I’m still impressed with the variety of decorative and planning stickers.
Papered Kiss – Sticker Sheets – $7.50
So pretty! I love the watercolor flower design. I’m also really excited to try the hexagon to-do stickers. I believe these are inspired by Inkwell Press planners. I don’t own one, but I’ll make it work. I love that I could use any of this stickers in all my planners.
Planneresque – Sticker Sheets – $7.50
I fell in love with these the hardest. I love the bold colors and the floral patterns. I used all of them at once and I wished I had more. I don’t think there’s one sticker I won’t use, and I love the simplicity of the planner icon stickers. Love it!
Planner Kate – Sticker Sheets – $7.50
This set was another instant favorite. I’ve been eyeballing this shop for a while, so I’m really excited to get my hands on a couple of sheets. They look so soft and delicate, and one of the patterns matches perfectly with the washi tape I received last month from another subscription service called, the Washi Buff Box.
I hate to say it but this is actually my least favorite of the bunch and it’s made by the Planner Addict Box. I do love the floral design, planner icons and the flags. What bothers me are the non uniformed hearts and font type and font size. Will they all get used, yes! Will anyone tell the difference besides me, probably not. I’m actually over it already, so let’s get going to the last set! LOL
Another adorable set from an Etsy shop I’ve been stalking on Instagram! I love the retro style of the floral washi tape and the minty green polka dots. The larger boxes are mostly laid out for the Erin Condren standard (vertical), but I was able to cut some of the checklist boxes for the EC horizontal.
Erin Condren – Horizontal Layout
Erin Condren – Vertical Layout
Verdict: Excluding the paper gift bag, The Planner Addict Sticker Box had an estimated retail value of $41.50! I found this to be a great value though it’s short of their estimated value of $50. What’s great about this subscription that I didn’t mention previously: every Etsy shop provided a coupon code to use in their shop. I think coupons are great, but I don’t like to include them in the overall value of the box, because they expire so quickly and they require you to make a separate purchase. Considering how many different shops are included with this subscription, I would hope that all of the shops expand the coupons to expire at the end of the following month.
Let us know in the comments what kind of planner you use and love. I’m new to the Kikki K and Ban.do planners so maybe I’ll feature one of those next month.
