It's hard to believe that we are already into the month of October. Time certainly flies! But, changing up my monthly calendar is always fun. This month, I used Candy Carnival to decorate my school planner. This is the planner that stays at school with me. I love the Icon stickers for decorating my monthly. I also enjoy using the die cuts from the Odds and Ends packs, too. They are always so versatile and the size makes a great impression on the spread. Here's how it turned out. I started off by adding a strip of washi tape along the top. I used two of the border stickers and layered them on the side. I love creating borders on my calendars.

Here are some die cuts that I used. I love the star burst/ferris wheel looking design and used them to highlight the corners of my design. I pulled out the cute banner die cut and added it to the spread. I love banners and this one makes a great focal point on the page. 

I also love adding puffy stickers to my calendar pages. They are all so cute! These little candies were the perfect addition. The nice part about adding them to the monthly spread is that you're not writing on the opposite side of the page that much so the added bumpiness doesn't affect it. 

Here's a close up of the border stickers. Layering them makes for a great look. I added more Icon stickers. (Aren't the little Halloween kids precious?) I used small strips of washi tape to mark my days off. I also added some more die cuts on the lower right side where there was more room. 
I also ended up making a fun book mark to mark my October page. It was quick and easy to do.  I chose some of my favorite die cuts and layered them on top of each other. I picked a couple of chit chats and added them to the design. Then, I laminated and cut it out.
Aren't they adorable??? This was such a fun project and will look great sitting on my monthly spread this October.
Hope you enjoyed this peek inside my October planner. Candy Carnival is definitely a new favorite! I'm sure you can see why!
