Printable Planner Stickers – All About Planners
I live in Australia, most of my customers live in the USA and shipping is very expensive and takes a long time! I conducted a poll and most of the feedback was that customers would not be willing to wait the amount of time it takes to deliver mail from Australia to the USA. Printable means I can offer the designs at a cheaper price than printed stickers and, once you purchase the file you can print the stickers as many time as you like for your personal use. If you run out of stickers just print another sheet… or 10 😉 Printable files are like the gift that keeps on giving!
All of my sticker files are affordably priced and you can save even more if you purchase a choose your own sticker bundle.
UPDATE: Printed planner stickers are now available in my sister’s Etsy shop Carefully Crafted!
WHERE CAN I PURCHASE THE STICKERS?
All sticker designs are available in the Etsy store. A sample is available in the online store.
WHAT LABEL/STICKER PAPER SHOULD I USE?
You can buy full sheet label paper from:
Worldlabel (Worldwide but expensive shipping to Australia)
Online Labels they even have metallic label paper (which I am dying to try!) (Worldwide but expensive shipping to Australia)
Office Depot (US only)
Amazon (Worldwide but expensive shipping to Australia)
Walmart (US only)
Officeworks (Australia only)
Staples (US and Australia)
Labelsbythesheet (US only)
Sheet Labels (US only)
And of course, Avery.
I have found that the ‘unofficial’ label paper (i.e. anything but Avery) is cheaper and works just the same! Most are compatible with both inkjet and laser printers but be sure to check before purchasing.
Matte sticker paper is easier to write on that Glossy. You can also purchase repositionable sticker paper.
I purchase my label paper off Ebay.
0.5 x 0.5″ square stickers fits 270 stickers per 8. 5 x 11″ sheet. You can purchase full sheet re-positionale label paper for 30c a sheet or 0.001c per sticker! Shops selling printed and cut stickers charge $4 for around 30 stickers of the same size. You also need to pay shipping on top of that. And wait for them to arrive in the mail. With printable stickers you receive them within minutes of your purchase. An added bonus – the Australian Dollar is currently only buying around 70cUSD this means, because of the exchange rate, if you live in the USA these stickers are actually even cheaper! (I live in Australia)
WHAT ARE EDITABLE STICKERS?
Currently, the only editable stickers are the morning/day/night section titles.
EDITABLE PDF FILES:
– When you open the file there will be light blue boxes where you can type in your information (this will NOT remain light blue when printed).
– You can still print and hand-write on the sheets (the blue boxes won’t appear on your printed copy)– The fillable font is helvetica in black– For copyright protection, the layout of the documents, including existing text cannot be changed– You CAN save information typed into the PDF. I recommend saving the original version as ‘blank’ if you would like to make multiple sticker sheets.
– You will need a computer (not an ipad or iphone) to open and edit PDF files.
Most of the stickers come in 2 file format:
PDF: If it’s not already installed on your computer you will need to download it here (it’s free!). Note:You will need a computer to open and print PDF files.
JPG: this file format is compatible for use with your silhouette cutting machine and printing at home (print the sticker sheet/image as a full page photo)
HOW DO I PRINT THE STICKERS?
These instructions will work for any of the planner / calendar stickers available in my shop. I am going to demonstrate using the 1.5inch x 0.5inch stickers. These stickers are formatted for printing onto these letter size sticker sheets so you can easily print them from home. Or you can just print onto normal copy paper or cardstock and use glue to adhere, more on that below.
As always I recommend doing a test print onto a piece of scrap paper before printing multiple sheets onto sticker paper.

Note that all printers are different. I am using a Canon printer – if you are using a different brand your printer menu may display a little differently. There are so many different types of printers out there I do not know how to use every printer so unfortunately I may not be able to help if you have problems printing. Please follow the step-by-step guide below if you are having difficulties. Want to consult your printer manual but can’t remember where you put it? See this website to view free printer manuals for any type of printer.
Printing the PDF File onto Letter Size Paper
1. Open the file. Go to the top left hand corner, press file and then print.
2. The printer menu will open.
Make sure ‘actual size’ is selected then click on ‘properties’
3. A new menu will open – change the page size to letter size
I have not noticed a difference between printing on ‘standard’ and ‘high’ print quality settings
4. Press ‘OK’ to close that menu, then press ‘Print’
Printing the PDF File onto A4 Size Paper
If, like me, you live in Australia, you can still use these. The only change is the amount of white space around the design. The stickers are in no way affected and still print perfectly! 🙂
1. Open the file. Go to the top left hand corner, press file and then print.
2. The printer menu will open.
Make sure ‘actual size’ is selected then click on ‘properties’
3. Change the page size to A4
5. Click OK. The first menu will now look like this
I have not noticed a difference between printing on ‘standard’ and ‘high’ print quality settings
4. Press ‘OK’ to close that menu, then press ‘Print’
Note: if you live in Australia and keeping the stickers at 1.5″ wide is important – make sure you print using the PDF file as I have found the JPG file alters the size of the stickers to 1.6″ long… or maybe that’s just my printer. This size printing error also occurred even if I un-checked the ‘fit picture to frame’ button so if maintaining the exact size is important to you please print using the PDF!
Printing the JPG File
1. Open the JPG and click the black arrow (point down) next to ‘print’
2. A new window will appear. Click on ‘options’ then ‘printer properties’ this will take you into the same printer menu as for printing a PDF. Change the paper size if need be. Click on ‘options’ in the bottom right and make sure the correct page size and print quality if you wish to print on ‘high quality’ is selected.
3. IMPORTANT: when I print the stickers using the the jpg they did not print correctly when the ‘fit picture to frame’ box was ticked so be sure to UNTICK this box! This is what worked for my printer – yours may be different. As always I recommend doing a test print onto a piece of scrap paper and in greyscale before printing multiple sheets onto sticker paper as all printers work differently (I also recommend writing down or taking screenshots of the printer options you selected so you can refer back to them if needed).
WHAT IF I DON’T HAVE STICKER PAPER?
Buy it! Seriously it’s worth it. If you don’t want to buy a lot you can order a few sheets from Labelsbythesheet. Label paper is very inexpensive if purchased in bulk e.g. from OnlineLabels
If you do not have label paper you can print onto normal printer paper and use glue or glue tape to adhere. I would recommend cardstock though as the colours print more vibrantly and are not see-through on thicker paper. I recommend ‘quill board’ which is thicker than copy paper at 210GSM. I also use this for printable notecards. You can buy it at Officeworks. I’m sure places like Staples in the US sells something similar. Even though it’s thicker than normal copy paper it doesn’t jam my printer. Amazon also sells cardstock.
Another option is to cut contact paper to letter size, peel back the sticky edge and stick the printed stickers to the contact sticker i.e. order will be: contact paper, printed stickers and then the back of the contact paper. I recommend trimming the white edge off the printed stickers so the contact paper stickers to the back (non-sticky side that comes with the contact paper). Cut or punch out as needed then peel back for stickers. Not sure if contact paper is called the same thing in the USA but this looks similar.
CUTTING YOUR STICKERS
I have found that the most efficient method of cutting is to:
1) Cut off the white space on the top, bottom and sides
2) Cut the remaining into strips horizontally going across the width of the page
3) Cut the smaller strips still using your paper trimmer or using scissors.
The reason I cut horizontally is that there is less to cut (as you are cutting the width not the length of the sticker which is longer) but it is up to you to cut whichever way works best for you!
Tip: I print off sticker sheets then cut them during ad breaks while watching TV. I have found that I can cut up to 3 sticker sheets at once using my guillotine.
WHAT DO YOU USE TO CUT THE STICKERS?
I use a guillotine I purchased a few years back. I can’t remember where I bought it from but it is similar to this one. I prefer that style of paper trimmer to this style as I find it easier to see where I’m cutting and easier to cut multiple sheets at once.
For the flag stickers I use scissors for the flag ends. If you want round stickers I recommend using a craft punch such as this one. Medium size scissors are preferable as the blade is too large on large scissors and I’ve found small scissors make my hand cramp after about 5 sticker sheets.
You can also cut stickers using the Gyro Cut tool.

Alan Marshall • Arzamas
As the author of a story about a boy on crutches became popular in the USSR
Author Dina Baty
Alan Marshall ( 1902-1984) is known primarily as a children’s writer thanks to the autobiographical story “I can jump over puddles.”In the book, he tells how he suffered polio at the age of six and has been walking on crutches since then, but he is in no way inferior to his peers: he jumps over puddles, climbs into the mouth of a volcano, fights with offenders, swims and even rides.

“I can jump over puddles” is the first part of an autobiographical trilogy. In it, Marshall showed the nature of the bush, the peculiarities of local life (for example, house opossums) and the problems of the villagers. So, his father, an excellent bus driver, is gradually becoming unclaimed: who needs horses when cars appeared? Before Marshall’s eyes, this profession is becoming a thing of the past, as was rural Australia at the beginning of the 20th century.
It was to this Australia that he devoted most of the stories included in the collections Tell About a Turkey, Joe (1946) and Hammers on Anvil (1975).The main characters are provincial adults, children open to the world, as well as animals that are exterminated by hunters (dingo dogs, ducks and kangaroos). This is the world of Marshall’s childhood, to which he returns throughout his life.Alan Marshall as a child with his pony Knihovna Petra Bezruče v Opavě
I Can Jump Over Puddles was published in 1955 and quickly became popular outside Australia. Readers liked the story of a boy on crutches, who was outraged by someone else’s pity: “In childhood, an inactive leg that has become useless does not cause shame; only when you learn to recognize the views of people who do not know how to hide their feelings, there is a desire to avoid their society. “

Alan Marshall was against the special attitude towards people with disabilities and destroyed stereotypes about their inferiority. He worked, traveled, and also answered numerous letters from children with various ailments. In 1972 he received the Order of the British Empire for Services to the Disabled.
In the sequel to the trilogy, It’s Grass (1962) and In My Heart (1963), the action takes place in Melbourne before and during the Great Depression.The protagonist of these books, a young man on crutches, cannot find something to do.

Marshall never parted with his notebook and copied all the heroes from real people. Since the late 1940s, the writer explores the uniqueness of his continent and travels to the Torres Strait Islands – to the Aboriginal settlements.In 1947, he lived for nine months in different tribes, writing down their tales and myths: “In the West, the characters of the legends are strong, outstanding personalities or brave warriors, while among the Australian aborigines they are ordinary people acting in the guise of animals.” The essays were included in the book “We are the same people” (1948).Alan Marshall.

Coming from a poor family, anti-fascist and supporter of communist ideas, defender of the workers, author of texts in the spirit of socialist realism, including in the left-wing radical magazine “The Voice of the Workers”, Alan Marshall was considered to USSR is a good writer.His books were translated into Russian, he himself visited the Soviet Union several times, and his enthusiastic impressions of the country were published in Pravda and Ogonyok. Most of the books by Marshall, who headed the Australia-USSR Society, have been translated into Russian.The project was prepared in cooperation with the Australian Embassy

Animals • Arzamas
Why Australian animals resemble alien creatures
Sergey Kolenov Darwin’s biologists know that the most interesting evolutionary experiments take place on the islands. And if you cut off an entire continent from the rest of the world, the results will be even more amazing.This is exactly what happened with Australia, whose nature, after 30 million years of isolation, began to resemble an alien. Evolution here went its own way: for example, many ecological niches were occupied by marsupials, which almost disappeared in the rest of the world, unable to withstand competition with placental mammals. And the variety of habitats allowed for the emergence of numerous species of birds and reptiles. Moreover, most of the inhabitants of Australia are endemic, that is, they can be found only here.
PlatypusPlatypus.Illustration from the book “Mammals of Australia” by John Gould. London, 1863 National Library of Australia
Australia is home to many bizarre creatures. However, if you choose the most unusual of them, then the platypus ( Ornithorhynchus anatinus ) will surely win – an animal with a duck beak, thick hair and a beaver tail that lives in water and lays eggs. The first meeting of European scientists with this animal ended in embarrassment. When his carcass was brought to Great Britain in 1798, many zoologists decided that they were in front of a skillful fake, and even tried to find traces of stitches on it connecting the duck beak to the body of the beaver.And those who still believed in the reality of the platypus considered it an unnatural cross between a bird and an animal.

Platypus. Illustration from the album dedicated to the expedition of Johann Christian von Schreber, “Mammals in the images of nature.”Germany, 1774 Harvard University, Museum of Comparative Zoology, Ernst Mayr Library
Scientists today know that the platypus is not a hybrid at all, but a mammal – it is true, very primitive. Like reptiles, platypuses lay small eggs covered with leathery shells, but the young hatched from them are fed with milk that flows from the enlarged pores on the mother’s belly. Another avian feature of the platypus is its soft beak dotted with electricity-sensitive cells. With its help, the animal finds food under water: worms, crayfish and other invertebrates.Also, male platypuses have poisonous spurs, which are used in mating tournaments.A boy and his father watch their dog poison a platypus. 1891 Wikimedia Commons
In the past, Australians hunted platypuses for their fur. Human activities, such as deforestation and river pollution, still harm the population of these amazing animals, but it must be admitted that attitudes towards them have changed. Today, platypuses have become one of the main symbols of Australia, as well as a tourist attraction.Unsurprisingly, a platypus named Sid was chosen as one of the mascots of the 2000 Summer Olympics in Sydney. Other Australian endemics became his partners: the laughing kookabara Ollie and the echidna Milly. Echidnas, by the way, are the closest relatives of platypuses: both species belong to the order of monotremes, which does not occur outside Australia and neighboring New Guinea.
Marsupial wolfMarsupial wolf. Illustration from the book “Mammals of Australia” by John Gould.London, 1863 National Library of Australia
In 1642, the Dutch navigator Abel Tasman landed on the shores of the island, which would later receive his name. The group, sent by him to explore an unknown land, returned with disturbing news: its members stumbled upon the tracks of wild animals with claws like tigers. This was the first meeting of Europeans with the tracks of a marsupial wolf ( Thylacinus cynocephalus ) – the largest marsupial predator that has survived to the modern era.Over the next centuries, white colonists will fear these beasts, falsely accuse them of killing livestock and persecute them mercilessly.

Marsupial wolf. Illustration from A Handbook to the Marsupialia and Monotremata by Richard Liedecker. London, 1896 Smithsonian Libraries
One glance at the image of the marsupial wolf is enough to understand why the Europeans disliked it so much.This beast looks exactly like an ordinary wolf, with the predatory habits of which they were very familiar. The illusion is spoiled only by a long tail and a yellowish-brown color with transverse dark stripes on the back and lower back. Nevertheless, the similarity between marsupial and real wolves is not evidence of their relationship, but just the result of convergence (this is how biologists call the phenomenon in which species originating from different ancestors, but adapted to a similar lifestyle, become similar to each other).Having occupied the niche of a swift hunter, the marsupial wolf acquired many of the traits characteristic of the canid family. There are other marsupial counterparts of placental mammals in Australia. Among them are marsupial moles, marsupial anteaters and even marsupial flying squirrels who have mastered gliding.The last known photograph of a wild marsupial wolf shot and killed by farmer Wilfred Batty for destroying a chicken coop. 1930 Gowans Auctions
Once marsupial wolves lived throughout Australia, but could not compete with the dingoes introduced from Southeast Asia about three thousand years ago, and became extinct everywhere except Tasmania.However, the island did not become a safe haven for them: in the first half of the 20th century, European colonists completely exterminated this species. Its last representative, a male named Benjamin, died at the Hobart Zoo in 1936. On the surviving archival footage, you can see him wandering aimlessly around his aviary.
Some enthusiasts believe that marsupial wolves are still hiding in the dense Tasmanian forests, but scientists do not take such claims seriously. Unfortunately, this species is far from the only victim of the European colonization of Australia: according to the calculations of zoologists, about 30 species of local mammals have irrevocably disappeared over the past centuries, and many others were on the verge of extinction.

Another Tasmanian, the Tasmanian devil ( Sarcophilus harrisii ), the largest surviving marsupial predator, is also under threat. Until the mid-1990s, he got along relatively well with people, but since then the population of the species has declined by more than 80%. This is due to infectious cancer, which is transmitted from one individual to another with bites on the face and leads to death in just a year and a half.Australians are working hard to save the Tasmanian devils. In particular, they launched a project to create a healthy population of these animals in the mainland of Australia, where they became extinct about three thousand years ago. After years of planning, in March and September 2020, 26 devils were released into a protected area in the east of the continent. In the coming years, 40 more individuals will join them. Experts hope that the new population of devils will not only provide insurance for endangered relatives in Tasmania, but will also help the local ecosystem cope with introduced species such as stray cats and foxes.

Quokka ( Setonix brachyurus ) is a clear example of how the white colonists’ dislike for the Australian fauna gradually gave way to violent love. The first European encounter with these little kangaroos was in 1658, when Dutch sailors spotted animals on Rottnest Island off the coast of Western Australia, which they mistook for wild cats.Forty years later, the quokkas were given a more detailed, albeit highly critical, description. The traveler Willem de Vlaminck, who visited Rottnest in 1696, compared them to huge rats and was surprised that such strange creatures generally exist in nature. He also gave the island its name, which in translation from Dutch means “Island of rats’ nests”.
Quokkas are endemic to Southwest Australia. In the past, their population was quite large, but the appearance of Europeans did not benefit the animals.Humans have converted many of these peaceful herbivorous marsupials into farmland and, even worse, brought foxes and cats with them. Against these skilled hunters, the Kwokk had no defense whatsoever. It is not surprising that their number dropped significantly and on the mainland they survived only in a few fenced reserves. The only places where quokkas thrive are the Rottnest and Bald Islands off the Australian coast, where imported predators have not entered. Unfortunately, many other aboriginal mammals of Australia, primarily small marsupials and rodents, faced similar difficulties.Since 2013, the Australian authorities have been implementing a plan for the protection of the quokk, which includes the fight against imported predators and the conservation of forests.Quokka.

For centuries, only a few zoologists knew about the existence of the quokk. However, in the mid-2010s, these animals became real Internet stars. It’s all about the quokk’s appearance: because of the unusual structure of the mouth, it seems that they are smiling all the time.Thus, creatures that were once disparagingly compared to rats have become a symbol of joy and a positive attitude towards life. And Rottnest Island now attracts numerous tourists hoping to take a selfie with a quokka. This is not difficult, because here they are not at all afraid of people.

Line launches ycon selfie sticker app
, Text: Mikhail Ivanov
Line Corporation, the developer of the service of the same name for free calls and messaging, announced the launch of the ycon application, with which anyone can create their own selfie stickers and share them in Line chats.All you need to do is take a selfie with your phone or select a photo from the gallery and insert it into the template.
The ycon app is an updated version of the Line Selfie Sticker, which was announced on June 11, 2014. The new app is significantly better integrated with the Line messenger and is available for iPhone and Android platforms.
At the moment there are more than 1000 different templates to choose from in the application. Every week the collections are replenished with new characters and sketches of artists from different countries.In addition, users can adjust various characteristics of the sticker, increase or decrease the size, brightness and saturation, or add text.
Since the release of Line Selfie Sticker for iPhone in June 2014, the application has been downloaded more than 4.5 million times worldwide (as of March 7, 2015), in particular due to an increase in the number of users of the Line messenger in various regions of the world and the increasing popularity of selfies. In Indonesia, Thailand and Turkmenistan, the service has become the most popular free app on the App Store, and the leader in the Entertainment category in 14 countries, including Australia, Egypt and Qatar.
In view of this success, the company announced the global launch of an application with improved integration with Line messenger under the new name ycon. The new version supports a transparent background, thanks to which the created selfie stickers are no different from the usual Line collections, and allows you to send your creations without leaving the chat or interrupting the conversation.

Results per page: 520355065809590,000 Review of the book “Shantaram” by Gregory David Roberts
According to the rating of the site pro-books.ru on July 1, 2017, the novel ranked first. On the cover of the book it is written “A person whom Shantaram will not touch to the depths of his soul, either does not have a heart, or is dead, or both at the same time”. What is the magic of this book and why should it touch everyone?
The Story of One Australian
The book is based on real events in the life of an Australian writer. After escaping from prison in Australia, he lived for 10 years in India, where the events of the book unfold.The novel, written between 1991 and 1997, first saw the light of day in Australia in 2003. It was published in Russia in 2010.
The main character, a former robber and drug addict, sentenced to 19 years and escaped from prison, arrives in Bombay with a fake Lindsay Ford passport. His friend’s mother gives him the Indian name Shantaram: translated from Marathi – “a peaceful man” or “a man whom God has given a peaceful fate.”
He quickly makes friends, learns the local languages - Hindi and Marathi – and becomes “his” in a completely new world for him.When he starts to run out of money, he moves to the slums with his friend Prabaker, where by chance he becomes a local doctor, which earns even more respect among the locals.
Lin makes many acquaintances in criminal circles, he is interested in a major mafioso Abdel Kader Khan. On a denunciation, Lindsay ends up in a Bombay prison, where he spends four months. After his release, he starts working for Kader Khan, who calls him his adopted son.
After several of Lin’s friends die, he ends up in a den, where he uses drugs for three months. Kader Khan returns him to normal life and takes him to the war in Afghanistan, where he dies. The main character returns to Bombay and continues to cooperate with the mafia.
To read or not to read – that is the question?
The readers of Shantaram are divided into two opposite camps. The first claim that the book turned their lives upside down, and they “finally found their place in the world.”The second argue that the time spent on reading 1000 pages was irretrievably lost, and the author, from whom the guards took and tore up the works, was a sign from above – there is no need to write further. Meanwhile, there is also the second volume – “Shadow of the Mountain” (18+), which appeared in Russia in 2016, not inferior in size to the first part. Let’s figure it out.
What can you take for yourself from the novel “Shantaram”?
Now in literature and cinematography, the tendency to search for oneself, rejection of material benefits from the category of “dropped everything and hitchhiked around the world” is more and more noticeable.”Shantaram” to some extent can be attributed to adventure travel notes. The story of how a person finds his place in a foreign country, getting to know its culture, language, food and people, cannot but capture the reader who is mired in a routine and counts the days until vacation.
You can’t refuse this novel. Bombay is shown from all sides. The contrast between the house of a local mafioso and the slums in which ordinary residents live, a description of local cuisine, flavors, customs.Just a description of a family quarrel and the restoration of public order is worth something.
3. Development of horizons
About what charas, barfi is, who is a candidate, what are the rules for living in slums and brothels of Bombay, as well as the subtleties of respectful addresses and slang endings – you will not want to, but you will find out. And you will be able to shine in intellectual games with the knowledge of the most unusual words and facts, without even visiting India.
What can disappoint you in the novel “Shantaram”?
Detailed descriptions of the hero’s imprisonment, street fights, dens and bars are not something that will help you relax after a working day. For many, reading is a hobby and an outlet, so at times you have to make an effort on yourself to finish reading a particular chapter.
The main character does not always look realistic in terms of his characteristics. Upon arrival in India, a criminal who has escaped from prison seems to be an ideal citizen until he gives alms and extends a helping hand to everyone he meets.Meanwhile, the reader remembers that the novel is autobiographical.
Plus, from time to time, the hero’s fantastic stamina manifests itself. Apparently he was so afraid to show himself in a bad light that he became almost an example to follow.
Well, with that, everything is clear. The novel resembles a telephone directory. It’s scary to even hold it in your hands. Therefore, it is best to read the paperback split into two volumes. It also has a small format, due to which it looks less intimidating.
Ultimately, Roberts’ novel, like any other, is a novel about a person. About dark and light inside us, about circumstances, change of events and relationships between people. It doesn’t matter what country we are in, it is important what we carry inside.
Several quotes from the novel “Shantaram”:
“We often call a person a coward when he is simply caught off guard, and the displayed courage, as a rule, means only that he was prepared.
