I ♥ Etsy: Alex Studio Sticker Haul!


If you have been following me on Instagram then I'm sure you know two things for sure. One, you know that I am a newbie planner girl, and two, you know that I love my stickers. I especially love stickers that mean something to me and my life, like the little Alex glasses that have been popping up on my planner spreads. Well guys, today I am going to talk about the loveliness that is the Alex Studio on Etsy (and it's a total coincidence that the Alex glasses are from the Alex Studio). 

Nicole, the shop owner, reached out to me and offered to send me a selection of stickers to try, which I happily took her up on. And... I have fallen in love. Just like Andrea's shop, which I reviewed here, the sticker quality is fantastic and the stickers peel away from the paper perfectly, which I have found is not the case with all Etsy sticker shops. The second I received the package I tore into it and immediately knew I was looking at one of my favorite sticker shops. Behold...

A slew of gorgeous stickers! The tassel banners! The little deer! THE ALEX GLASSES! She even sells little sleep tracker stickers so you can track the hours you get if you suffer from a sleeping disorder like I do (I got 2 sets of these!). 

I love this shop so much I have already placed a second order with her. So while the first batch of stickers were sent free for review, I like them enough that I have bought more with my own money. I think that always speaks the most in a world of blogging and receiving samples. Let me show you my favorites and then tell you which ones I bought! 

These are my absolute favs of the batch. From top left to right, you have beautiful tassel banner stickers, a sampler page (definitely a must-try in my opinion, you get to try so many of her stickers for a good price!), pink panties which I think make for really cute period tracker stickers (lolz), cats in hats, deer and hedgehogs (SO CUTE!), and macarons. Bottom row is makeup (yes please!), lush bath stuff (what? this shop is so cute!!), Alex glasses (duh), and floaty clouds. 

I learned very quickly that you can order all the stickers and washi you want, but until you start decorating your spreads you're not really going to know what you will actually use. There have been several items I have purchased from various shops that I haven't touched yet, and now that I see the way I plan, I'm not sure I will. I made sure to stock up on the stickers I know I will use. So, for the ones I ordered... I bought a few more pages of the Alex glasses, the full page lipsticks and mascaras, the cats in boxes, another set of both her sampler packs, the tassels, the sequin banners, and the weekend banners. I used one of her weekend banners in my latest spread and it was the most talked about sticker on the page; everyone wanted to know where it was from! It actually came on one of her sampler packs, so I only had one, and I knew I needed to order a whole set of them because they are adorable. See how cute?

Nicole has been kind enough to set up a 15% off entire purchase coupon just for my readers! The code is "iheartyoucoffee" and you can get to her store here - link! She ships worldwide! If you order anything from her please let me know in a comment below along with what you plan to use it for so we can share ideas! People use stickers for different things, and I think we can all get inspiration from each other. 

Look out for a giveaway featuring some Alex Studio stickers and other planner accessories very soon! 

Speaking of giveaways, if you are into planner goodies there is a group giveaway going on right now on MyLifePlanner's Instagram. You can enter for a chance to win a prize from the Alex Studio and also from me! Click here to check it out.

So I have a question for you all... I have been getting a TON of requests for planner videos, and I do think that's something I would be able to do partially from bed. What exactly would you like to see? Decorating videos? Planner walk-throughs and reviews? DIYS? Sticker Hauls? I would love specific requests below!

  13. I'd suggest doing a "what's in my planner" video. If and when you get your LV planner (I know you said it was in LA), you should do a comparison video between that and the EC. I have a personal size Filofax right now, and have an EC and A5 size Filofax coming all because I'm indecisive. I know comparison videos would have helped my urge to get all three.

  16. I love your posts about planners and stickers! In Alex Studio I like the most weekend banners, sampler packs, the tassels, the sequin banners... but actually I love most of them, so I would be happy over all of them :)
    It would be sooo exiting if you had change to make planner video. I would be intrested of everything. Also I was thinking that how do you organize holding your stickers. I have my planner stickers also quite much and I don't know anymore where to hold them. They are too much to put between my planner :)

    Inspired by your planner and sticker haul post I made also post in my blog about my own planner and stickers. Also as I work in printhouse I made my own stickers what I think I need the most. But I relally would like to order some stickers from Etsy too. If you are interested you can see my post here : http://kittekatu.blogspot.com/2015/02/kleebised-ja-markmikud.html

  20. Love seeing all your stickers hauls! And I would definitely watch your planner videos if you come up with them. Just wondering how do you store all your stickers? Cos I carry my planner around with me and have been stuck on if I should bring all my stickers around with me too. And how i should keep them all in one place. I was thinking of a slot folder, but they just seems like too much of a hassle to carry that around. And I have some what of an obsession with stickers like you do, right now there's just too many stickers to keep slotted in my planner haha.

  22. I love everything about this blog post! Anything stationary related I absolutely love. I would love to see how you plan your planner, or how you store all your stationary! Also, any stationary hauls as I am always in the market for everything stationary!
