Planner Haul!

Hello! I have a small planner haul to share today. I don’t go crazy with collecting scrapbooking/planner items anymore, like I did a long time ago. So, when I buy something, it means I really wanted it as part of my collection.

Storytime: I have been wanting this girl planner from The Planner Society since Christy first gave aΒ  sneak peek back in July 2017. Yes, it’s been a long time coming! The planners came in February of 2018, and upon inspection, they found a lot of issues and inconsistencies with the planners. So, they refunded all the orders, including mine, and I was so sad. I thought this planner was perfect for me!

A few weeks back, they announced that they had went through all the planners, and found some that weren’t too damaged, but also were not perfect. They put them on sale for 50 percent off, so I snagged two of them! I picked up an A5 ring binder, and a pocket tn (my original choice from the first order that got canceled).

Oh my goodness! They are beautiful!Β  πŸ’ž The only imperfections I could find was a tiny bit of bubbling and glue on the pocket tn. I am so happy to have them in my planner collection.Planner Haul | Created by Jen BlogIMG_0408Here’s the beginning of my pocket tn setup…Planner Haul | Created by Jen BlogAnd here’s how I’ve started setting up my A5…IMG_0410IMG_0411Planner Haul | Created by Jen BlogHere’s a very tiny Mambi haul from Hobby Lobby. My store didn’t have much of the new stuff, but I was so happy to finally find the Farmhouse sticker book and one of the Micro Notes books. It really is so tiny, but so cute, in person!IMG_0363Thanks for stopping by today!heart_jen

The Planner Society | August 2018

Hello! It was a happy mail kind of day on Saturday- my August Planner Society kit came!!

The theme and colors are really gorgeous this month. It has a transitional-seasonal kind of feel. I think it’s great for easing into fall, but I also kind of want to use it next spring! I actually might go back & use it for scrapbooking some of my spring photos. It gives me spring time vibes.The Planner Society August 2018 Kit | Created by Jen Blog

Happy Planner Weekly Spread | July 30- August 5

Hello! First of all, how is it almost August?! I can’t believe how quickly the summer and the year are flying by!

Here’s my first weekly spread in my new Student Happy Planner from Target (it’s also available HERE at the Mambi shop. I have to say, I am really excited about this new layout. I love all the boxes, and I have plans for each of them (see below). I’m not a student, but I am really into functional planning right now, so this layout speaks to me!

Here’s a look at the spread…Student Happy Planner Weekly Spread | Created by Jen BlogI sometimes dislike Happy Planners that are colorful, but I’m going to embrace it and just go with the color scheme that’s already there. It’s easy to get started with designing my spread, because the color scheme is set, and I get to use some of my stash that I may not have used otherwise. I think if I have a kit or a specific scheme in mind for a spread that won’t work with the colors, I can always just Frankenplan with my Glam Girl weeklies, which are simply black & white.IMG_6098Here’s a breakdown on how I plan on using the boxes:

Boxes 1-3: daily to-do list

Box 4: blog/social media schedule

Box 5:self-care/mood

Box 6: gratitude

Box 7: weather & dinnerIMG_6101I think the new Planner Society kit looks great with this planner!IMG_6115That’s all for today! Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Planner Weekly Spread | July 23-29

Hello! I’m so excited to share my weekly spread in my Classic Size Glam Girl Happy Planner today! This week’s layout is a mashup of the Simply Gilded washi collab with The Planner Sophisticate, some Planner Society stickers, and a few Mambi stickers as well.

I love how this turned out! It’s pink, gray, and girly!Happy Planner Weekly Spread feat. Simply Gilded | Created by Jen BlogI love this washi!! I thought the TPS stickers (from the December 2017 kit) were the perfect complement.IMG_6012I didn’t even realize the words on this washi were a reference to Harry Potter, but I love what they say. πŸ’πŸ» #notapotterheadHappy Planner Weekly Spread feat. Simply Gilded | Created by Jen BlogI can’t get enough of the Mambi Colorful Boxes sticker book. I may have to pick another one up when Michaels has another sale.IMG_6014Another one of my birds is having a birthday next week! Moe is the baby of the family.Β  πŸ™‚IMG_6015These purple discs are heaven!Happy Planner Weekly Spread feat. Simply Gilded | Created by Jen BlogWell, I’m still undecided about how to keep Glam Girl going through the rest of the year. I am toying with the idea of dropping my Recollections hourly, and converting Glam Girl for this purpose. We’ll see what happens!
