The Planner Addict Sticker Subscription Box Review- Jul 2016
The Planner Addict Sticker Box is the second subscription box created by Vienna Ortiz. Similar to their planner-based box, the sticker box provides subscribers a way to try stickers from multiple sticker shops at once with a collective scheme. Each month, expect to receive a variety of stickers made by various Etsy shops and The Planner Addict.
My Subscription Addiction paid for this box. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).

Good to Know: There’s a ton of goodies to go through! This month they started a new bundle for Ring Bound Planners that you can add onto your Sticker Box or Planner box for $15-$16 for the Personal and A5 size and you’ll see it first in addition to the normal subscription.
The insert for the ring bound bundle says the theme is “Adventure”. Side Note: I must have been hungry when I wrote this review, I swear the bundle looks just like a strawberry pop tart! Yummy!! The products this month feature Etsy shop, Sew Much Crafting. This is the first subscription bundle by the Planner Addict made specifically for ring bounds planners. I would believe if it is successful, they will make this available for a stand-alone subscription. Right now it’s still all very new and things could change quickly, so let’s just see what we have!
From what I understand, these are exclusive to the bundle. It’s super cute, I didn’t take a photo of every single page, but you definitely have every type of page you can think of to pre plan and document an adventure. The paper quality alone is worth it to me. The paper that comes in my Kikki.K is about as fragile as Bible paper. Very thin, and getting use to it has been a challenge. I’m glad to see there are paper options out there to fix this.
Dividers and Tabs – Personal Size – $14.00
At the moment, these are not available for purchase on the Planner Addict Box website. I linked a similar set available for purchase. Personally, I’m not a fan of the squared edges. I need to get a edge punch before I use these. Otherwise, I love the mix of patterns though I probably would not use them all at the same time. It’s a bit too busy for me.
The insert for the stickers says July is “Under the Sea”. Our stickers designs are inspired by mermaids and ocean life.
“Mermaids Have More Fun” – paper bag
The stickers were all packaged in this cream and teal foil double lined bag. Adorable.
My favorite stickers in this set are the Mermaid inspired half boxes. But this month was really hard to pick favorites. There are a ton of cute designs.
My favorite stickers in this set are the decorative labels. Functional and cute! I feel like I’m going to say “cute” a lot in this review. LOL.
I hate picking favorites but this wasn’t it. I personally would have enjoyed this set much more if the designs were outlined or more saturated with color. I found them very washed out compared to the other stickers. But again, just my personal preference, but I love stickers either way and they will be used eventually. My favorite stickers out of this set are the sea creatures and task bullets.
My favorite stickers from this set are the banners and flags. I feel this shop designer took the theme and hit the mark! You may not be able to see the fine detail from my photos, but I can tell you they are very detailed and pigmented. This shop owner also provided a business sticker card with a sample set of stickers available in her shop and a coupon code.
I’m normally never drawn to glossy stickers, but this set is the most unique this month by far! Totally gorgeous and I love the watercolor details throughout. My favorite stickers from this set are the sea creatures and shells.
LoveLikeRyn – Sticker Sheets – $7.50
My favorite stickers from this set are the decorative tabs. There’s also a few watercolor patterns throughout the set. Really pretty and simple enough to mix with other sets from this month.
If I had a favorite shop for stickers, it would have to be Little Dog Paper Co. I’ve ordered tons of monthly mystery kits from them in the past and I highly recommend them speaking from experience. My favorite stickers from this set are sea creatures and little Sheldon, he comes precut on every sticker sheet. A coupon code was also included.
Honestly, I wasn’t a big fan of this set either. Again, the colors didn’t have enough contrast and felt very washed out in appearance. However, I really appreciate the amount of icons this shop provided.
Verdict: In July, The Planner Addict Sticker Box had an estimated retail value of over $56.00!! The Ring Bound Bundle had an estimated retail value of $18.00. Not bad either. I really enjoyed the collection this month. There are of course too many stickers to finish in one month and I don’t mind sharing stickers with my kiddos or saving a few sets for the end of summer. I love discovering new sticker shops and I can’t even complain about the glossy stickers I received this month because they were so pretty. Nearly every set had a mermaid or too and I totally wanted to be a mermaid when “The Little Mermaid” came out many moons ago.
