Plan with Me: Jan.18-24 and How to cut Washi

Its been a little while since I have done a planner spread on the blog. I am just so excited for this up coming week I just had to share it! I am starting to really love my weekly spread and am getting the hang of using functional and decorative stickers. I have to always have check list in my spreads. I love getting things done throughout the week and being able to check them off my to do list. 
Here is how I achieved the above layout.

This weeks spread was inspired by a cover I made for my planner. I just love the colors and the deer and floral combo.
Once I had picked out the theme for my spread I always start with covering my morning, day, and night with washi tape. With this I want to give you a tip on how to put washi in your planner. 
Do you all ask yourself how do all those other planner girls get their Washi perfectly lined up and just cut so straight. I had been asking this question to myself for a bit as well. I wasn't the only one asking this, someone on the Facebook group (MAMBI The Happy Planner Group) asked this as well. This is where I learned this amazing and clever trick! 
All you will need to achieve perfect Washi cuts is your Washi tape and a credit card or a small edging surface. 
Step 1: Line up your Washi Tape where you would like it. 
Step 2: Place your smooth edge to the line where you would like to cut the Washi tape. 
Step 3: Hold your Washi close to the edge and pull upwards to rip the washi tape against the edge.
Step 4: Step back and look at your perfectly cut Washi on your planner!! :) 

After the washi is place down. Then I will place all my stickers. I will first do the layout I want and then add all the decorative stickers above that. 

Here is the whole week at a glance. I write what I can on Sunday and then fill it in through out the week with what needs to be done. 

I have said this before but I will remind you all again there is no right or wrong way to do this, you could use tons of stickers or no stickers.
