How beautiful did my writing come out for this February header?

What about this weekly spread?
Well I have a confession to make.. I made it on my computer! (gasp)
I’m envious of all of you with beautiful calligraphy handlettering, and I’m putting in the time to practice my handwriting to get mine there. I know we are supposed to stride for progress over perfection, but I yearned for the beautiful pages I see so many of you sharing on a day-to-day basis.
When I came up with this hack, I didn’t have a Cricut or Silhouette machine, so I thought making my own stickers was out of the question. I realized I did, however, have a nice font collection, some clear address labels and a printer.
Using Avery Clear Easy Peel Address Labels (8660) I typed out the dates, centered, picked my font, and printed. Because they are clear, cutting was not too big of a pain.
The labels are matte, so it’s really not obvious in your book that it’s a sticker, and so far I’ve had no problems with smudging. What I do have though, is a big smile every time I open my bujo to these beautiful pages.
I created a free download that you can use for February, which has all the dates printed in the same font you see in the photos above. You can grab the Avery 8660 labels, or just clear full page shipping labels (or whatever you can get your hands on for the least amount of money) and cut.
