Happy Planning April 16-22

Pin It!
This week I used a similar color scheme to last week. I like the vertical layout better than the horizontal. I still need to work on my handwriting. :)  Most of the stickers I used this week were from Carpe Diem - Bloom.













Happy Planning April 9-15, 2018

I enjoyed doing this layout. I used a variety of stickers in the seafoam green, coral and lavender colors. This is the first week of doing a vertical layout. The planner I have is a horizontal layout. My daughter had an extra planner with a vertical layout, so she gave me the pages for the rest of April and all of May and June.  Here are my Before and After the Pen.

Happy Planning Layouts

Pin It!
It's been a while since I posted. Most of my crafting has been sewing projects that I've donated and I rarely post those. However, my youngest daughter, Brittany started Planning a few months ago. I said I wasn't interested in doing it, but as always, would support her and look for things on clearance. Well, it wasn't long and she got her sister hooked. Brittany and I went shopping at Hobby Lobby one evening and I caved and bought a mini planner and some stickers.  Since then, I've bought several sticker books, washi tapes and a classic planner. I'm really enjoying them. This past weekend, I purchased my mini and classic planners that will start in July. My current classic planner is horizontal and since most of the stickers are made for the vertical layout, it wasn't very easy to decorate. Brittany had some extra vertical pages for April-June, so I switched to those starting this week. Hopefully by the time July gets here I'll be much better at decorating.  Here are a few pictures from my mini and classic planners. I don't remember what sticker books I got the stickers from. I have since torn most of my sticker books apart and have a filing storage system for them. I'll picture that in a separate post.

Happy Planning - Supplies

Pin It!
In a little over a month I've purchased quite a few things!! These are most of the stickers I've purchased so far. I've purchased my stickers from Michael's, JoAnn's, Hobby Lobby and Etsy.  I still have 3 of the new MAMBI sticker books that I want, but I really need to cut down on spending for a while.


From Plan to Plan on Etsy.  These stickers are adorable and reasonably priced. 


I love the Create 365 Sticker books.  

I have the following (pictured above):

Stickers (Green) (not sure of the name) - 1050
Color Story - 725
Quotes - 427
Food - 1551
Seasonal - Mini - 2001
Productivity - 540
Rainbow - 1140
Stickers - (Hot Pink) (not sure of name) - 1234
Tiny - 1508
Planner Basics - Mini - 1768
Choose Happy - Mini - 749
Mom - Mini - 1529
Planner Basics - 1829
Watercolor - 1078




I've also purchased quite a bit of washi tape. It all came from Michael's, Hobby Lobby and JoAnn's. 




These are the pens I have right now. I'd really like to learn how to do nice hand lettering. I hear the Flair pens are the best, so I'll be getting some of those in the near future. 

I bought the Paper Mate pens at Meijer and the Maped at Hobby Lobby.

In addition to the supplies above, I've also purchased sticky notes, dashboards, and folders.  What a fun hobby!!  


Happy Planning - Sticker Organization

Pin It!
Since I started planning about a month ago, I've purchased quite a few stickers and sticker books. I think 90% of the time spent planning is searching for stickers. :)  I finally decided to make a filing system for some of my stickers.
I used card stock for dividers and a punch for the tabs. The basket is the Stack 'Em Up small from Clever Container (direct selling company).


The books I didn't take apart, I used an idea from Kellofaplan. You can buy the ties on Amazon for around $8.00 for 100. There is a link in her video.

Handmade Baby Doll Burp Cloths & Wash Cloths

Pin It!
I have so much fun making smaller items. My youngest granddaughter told me that she needed some burp cloths for her baby dolls, so of course I made her some.


*Burp cloths are 4”x9” and flannel on both sides
*Wash Cloths are 3 3/4” square, one side is flannel and the other side is terry cloth. 

I zigzaged all around on both of them.
