Heidi Swapp Memory Planner

Hello! Happy Wednesday!

Today I just wanted to share my current dilemma when it comes to photo memory planning. I started off the year in the Classic Size Daydreamer Happy Planner. I completed about 6 months in it. But, it always seemed empty and just not the style I was trying to obtain. So, during this summer, I tried my fave Mini Happy Planner. I used the weekly pages, with sticker and washi as decor. I still wasn’t feeling it. So, I just tried using simple Mini HP grid paper. I liked that method the best, but, I still don’t like the results. Such problems to have, right?

So, what I’ve decided to start using again is my Heidi Swapp 4-ring binder. I used Heidi’s Memory Planning system (successfully!) for two years, in 2015 and 2016. Why not try again? I have an extra binder with undated inserts, so I might as well use them!

I have set this planner up to begin with August, and we’ll see how it goes. I still just love the way this system works and Heidi’s aesthetic. I think I can make it work. I’ll update you in September.Β  πŸ™‚Heidi Swapp Memory Planner | Created by Jen Blog

Mid-Week Check In

Hello! Just checking in… on a Thursday! I am thinking about switching my mid-week post to Thursdays. I seem to run out of time in the very beginning of the week, but have more time in the middle of the week to post. It just seems like it will work out better for my current schedule…

I have a bunch of great ideas for posts coming up for fall. But, here’s a pretty photo from my Instagram feed, just for fun in the meantime! Thanks for sticking with me here!

Hello! Happy Saturday!

This week began cold & snowy, and is ending warm & sunny! In Ohio, if you don’t like the weather, hang around, and it’ll change before you can blink. I’m happy that spring is finally here, because now the weather & my mood can match the happiness of my Happy Planner layouts!

This week in my Classic Happy Planner, I used some more of my favorite Heidi Swapp floral stickers, and I simply love this spread! I added some black & white washi, in true Β  Heidi Swapp style. How cool does it look with the bright pink florals?Happy Planner Weekly Spread feat.

Happy Planner Weekly Spreads | February 5-11

Hello! Happy Saturday! It looks like it’s going to be a snowy Superbowl weekend here! I’m not a football fan by any means, but I will be watching the special This is Us episode afterwards. Anyone else? I know it’s going to wreck me!

Anyway, today I am sharing my new weekly planner spreads with you. Here is my Classic Glam Girl Happy Planner. I branched out a little this week & used some Heidi Swapp stickers from the large pack from Hobby Lobby (pictured a little bit below) along with my beloved mini Glam Girl stickers.

Happy Planner Weekly Spreads | January 8-14

Hello all!

I am going to try something a little different for at least the beginning of 2018 and upload my upcoming weekly spreads the Saturday before the week starts. So here we go!

This week in my Glam Girl Happy Planner, I used mini Glam Girl stickers again (surprise!). I also used some fun girl washi at the bottom (from Hobby Lobby). I love the color scheme of the Glam Girl stickers, and they’re so fun and fresh and different from the bright red & green holiday stickers that December was all about.
