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

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!
