Happy Thanksgiving to you all….
Happy Thanksgiving to you all….
So I normally post my planner layouts in a FB group I’m in for Happy Planner owners, so why should I neglect my very own blog the chance to display my creative side!!
Here is my spread “pre-pen” for this week. This leopard washi tape and hello gorgeous tape is by MAMBI and the red washi is from The Paper Studio, all bought from Hobby Lobby.
The brown girl stickers are from Victoria Thatcher’s website where she gives you the privilege of using her stickers for free (make sure you credit the woman’s work please).
As far back as I can remember, I’ve always been a lover of journals and the freedom it allows a person to be one with your thoughts. My mother was never a fan of it because she always mentioned the possibility of it landing in the wrong hands (or eyes). I never cared about that as I would always put a “read at your own risk” warning label on the front of my journals lol.
Planners are the same as journals but different if that makes any sense. One can still jot down their thoughts AND include daily reminders of important daily activities. I have taken a liking to planners, Create 365 The Happy Planner to be specific. I went back and forth trying to decide the best one that represents me (which you’ll see is so me). I can literally spend hours in Michael’s, Hobby Lobby & Joann’s looking at the various styles of planners.
I tell you no lie that I stumbled upon a “plan with me” (PWM) video on YouTube and I was immediately sold! Just the way you can buy or make sticker kits to spruce up your planner set, my creative gears were set in motion. Y’all remember my paper pad post, those will come in handy too!!
Now Create 365/The Happy Planner/ MAMBI (Me & My Big Idea) recently released a new Happy Planner Girl collection of 12 planners (along with matching accessories) exclusive to Hobby Lobby & Joann’s Fabric on October 16. From the moment they uploaded a showcase preview on their YouTube channel of the entire collection, I set my eyes on one and went on a mission.
I managed to snag these at Hobby Lobby last Friday cause a girl needs to use those 40% off coupons (and not pay shipping).
I chose Glam Girl
And a few of its accessories
I also purchased some sticker books
This planner is dated but I’m anticipating using this planner for a very long time…. Glam IS my jam!!
Are you the planner type? If so, what are currently using and what’s your favorite planner brand?
If you’re interested in seeing more planners, you can check them out HERE on their site.
You know we can get so creative trying to capture that perfect shot right! I forget who it was, but I even saw someone on IG using their cat as a background fixture to do a makeup flat lay pic lol.
I won’t go that route but I will use these use images from this multi image paper pads I purchased from Michael’s & Hobby Lobby. I was introduced to this by a YouTuber Bianca Andress, she will have you in these stores looking cray cray for the cute items she finds. Needless to say she had me in up them stores. She found hers in Micheal’s but I found some really cute paper pad themes in Hobby Lobby also, I caught them on a 50% off sale (which is still he current sale–I was in there today 😂🤣).
All the rest are from Hobby Lobby $19.99 (50% off)
I tell you I’m a sucker for anything with the patterns of lips, hearts, hearts w/ stripes, lipsticks or leopard print. I think I’ll be using these paper pads for a while, there’s a glitter themed pad I want to go back to get. There’s just too many pages for me to show you every image you’ll get, so that means I’m sending you into them stores to check these out in person. I can’t seem to pick which store has the better themes. If you go, let me know!!
What are some of your favorite patterns? What do you use for your flat lay pics?
Thanks for reading 💋
