New Happy Planner Stuff!

Hello there! Last week I went to Hobby Lobby, and hit the Happy Planner jackpot! I wasn’t really looking for any of the new planners, but I wanted some of the accessories. I found all the stuff I was looking for, and it was on sale!Β  😍Happy Planner Notes | Created by Jen BlogI really wanted this girl Micro Notes because the Micro Notes are too cute, and this is my favorite cover of that series. I did change the discs, as it came with blue ones. I also think it would look adorable with rose gold metal discs. I added a Planner Society bow too.Happy Planner Notes | Created by Jen BlogI have really been intrigued with these Half Notes Planners. I have some half sheets from the past year or so, and never quite knew how to make it work for me. I gathered them and made a “Fauxbonichi.” More on this in another post…Happy Planner Notes | Created by Jen BlogLastly, I adored the Faith Notes Planner when I saw it on YouTube, and in person it’s even better. I wanted a newer faith planner and I like the themed sheets it came with, as well as the dark purple discs. I slid it in my Webster’s Pages Composition Planner, and I love it.Happy Planner Notes | Created by Jen BlogThat’s it for my {mini} Happy Planner haul! Thanks for stopping by!heart_jen

New Self-Care Planner

It was about time to bring this beautiful planner back into the rotation! This is my Webster’s Pages Platinum Rose Personal Planner.

I have really felt the need lately to bring in a planner dedicated to my wellness. I am always so inspired when I look at this planner in my bookcase, so why not bring her out & set her up to help me take better care of myself?!

My Self-Care Planner | Created by Jen BlogI have a few sections in this planner: goals, gratitude, & journaling. I want this planner to be an inspiring place for me to come to & write down my feelings- when I’m feeling good or not so good.

My Self-Care Planner | Created by Jen BlogI want to add more inspirational quotes, photos, and affirmations to this planner as I continue to use it.

My Self-Care Planner | Created by Jen BlogI love these pockets filled with Heidi Swapp floral die-cuts, and a cute Instax pic of my sweet bird.Β  πŸ™‚

Purple looks sooo good with this planner!

My Self-Care Planner | Created by Jen BlogI will share this planner a little more in depth once I get some new dividers made and have added a few more things to it.

Mid-Year Planner Lineup

Hello! It’s July… so you know what that means! New planners! Well, I actually only have one new planner in this lineup, but I am shaking up my planner system a little, just to keep things fresh.

Here’s my #plannerstack…Mid-Year Planner Lineup | Created by Jen BlogMy first & favorite planner (shh! don’t tell the others!), the Classic Glam Girl Happy Planner. She’s my everything planner. I decorate, memory plan, and finish each day with this planner. If no other planners existed, this one would be the only one I need for the year.

But, of course, I enjoy other planners, so, here’s the next one in my lineup. This is the Classic Trendsetter Happy Planner I use for blog & social media planning. I still am loving this planner. I am constantly updating how I use this planner to make it most productive for me. I still dig the quilted hard cover too.

This is the newest planner to my collection. I bought the new Recollections Hourly Planner, which I have used since last summer, but I love this edition even more. This planner is not imperative for my daily planning, but I enjoy recording my days & seeing how I spent my time, so it stays in the lineup. I have also been decorating it more, which makes me happy! I added my favorite Erin Condren cover to it. I just love looking at it.

I re-purposed my Classic Daydreamer Happy Planner to become my faith planner. I really, really like using the horizontal layout for this purpose. The vertical faith planner I had been using kind of cramped my journaling style. I used to use this as a memory planner with photos of each week, but I found a new home for that idea (keep reading…). I love the Daydreamer planner for all things related to faith. It’s bright & happy and I want to open this planner every day and journal.

Finally, this is my beloved Mini Happy Planner. I retired her for a little, but she’s so cute, I had to find a purpose for her! Using her as a weekly memory keeper is perfect. The photos from my Sprocket printer will fit great in here, and serve as a cute record of each week of the rest of the year. The Daydreamer planner was just too big for how I wanted to make it work, so my Mini returns! I also recently bought her a slick black hard cover too, and it looks great with the pink metal discs!

Alright, is that enough planners to keep up with? Lol. It doesn’t overwhelm me though. I love all these planners and the purpose they serve in my everyday and weekly life.Β  I’m not afraid to change it up if it stops working for me.

Thanks for stopping by today, and what does your mid-year lineup look like?


Planner Peace πŸ™πŸΌ

So… I think I have #plannerpeace!!! I think about changing my system up a lot, but I always come back to The Happy Planner. Why? Everything I think I may want to switch up or change about the way I plan can be achieved with The Happy Planner. It’s time for me to stop trying to fix what’s not broken! πŸ˜‚

Here’s my setup: I use the Classic Size Glam Girl Happy Planner, with mini colorful discs, inside a Webster’s Pages Composition Planner.

I like the Classic size, because it’s not too small, and it’s not huge. I love the Glam Girl style because it has lines. I have the stencil that The Happy Planner put out last year to create lines & checklists, but it’s so easy to use Glam Girl because the lines are there and ready for you to write.

I like using the mini rings because I can edit the pages I have in my planner down to the most important things I need. I don’t do well with a lot of fluff in my planner. I have 3 basic sections in my planner. First, is a section of notes and info I need to have at hand. Second are my decorated monthly and weekly pages. Third, I keep a small section for my blog and social media planning.

I adore using the Webster’s Pages Composition Planner (over the Deluxe Cover from The Happy Planner) because the size is slim and it’s aesthetically gorgeous to look at. I want to pick my planner up and use it. It has TONS of pockets, and yes, I use a lot of them to tuck pretty things from The Planner Society in, but if I needed to use them practically, I could.Planner Peace | Created by Jen BlogMy happy place.Β  πŸ™‚My Happy Place | Created by Jen BlogAre you a Happy Planner girl too??

Happy Planner + Personal Planner Weekly Spreads | May 21-27

Hello! Happy weekend! It’s time for another round of weekly spreads for the upcoming new week.

First up in my Classic Glam Girl Happy Planner. I am still feeling tropical vibes, so I created another summer-inspired spread. I used washi from the tropical breeze washi tube from JoAnn’s, and some die cuts from last May’s Planner Society kit. The tip-in card is from a pack of cards from Authentique. I thought it was a cute addition. Finally, the boxes throughout the spread are from the Colorful Boxes Happy Planner sticker book. (Yay! I finally found it!)Happy Planner Weekly Spread | JM Creates BlogThe back of the Authentique card has the days of the week on it- functional and cute for a quick to-do list!IMG_4778Here’s a look without the card.IMG_4779Love the Planner Society die-cuts! Using up my stash…IMG_4780And, now, for my personal planner spread!

I am using the white binder from Webster’s Pages, and have been for a few weeks now, and I love it! It’s a good change for my planning routine. I like decorating it a little to make it pretty. πŸ™‚Webster's Pages Personal Planner Weekly Spread | JM Creates BlogI used The Planner Society’s March kit.
