Plan with me in my Recollections Planner –Cinco de Mayo– (ft Plannersaurus)

This week I really wanted to feature Cinco de Mayo in my planner but I had a bit of trouble finding a kit with the theme. I finally settled on this one. I do love the clip art and design it is just lacking in some of the stickers I really wanted to have. After all I do want my planner to function as well as look good. Thankfully I have amassed a rather large collection of stickers to use in cases like this.

The main kit is from the Etsy shop Plannersaurus so be sure to go check out the kits available in the shop.

As for the other stickers here is a list of the ones I used with the shops they are from (linked)

Plan with me in my Happy Planner –May Monthly– (ft Design Sticker Store)

Today you are peeking over my shoulder as I use this printable Monthly kit for May from the Design Sticker Store on Etsy.

First can I just say how much I love this monthly view kit?? When I found it on Etsy I liked it but once I got it printed and started to put the stickers on my pages I fell in love. The colors work perfectly with the existing colors in my Happy Planner for the month of May. That is something I look for when I am picking a monthly kit for this planner because of how I use the pages. I use my Happy Planner just for my blogs and youtube stuff and I know that is different for how most of you use yours. The kit I am using will work nicely I think no matter how you use your planner though.

Plan with me in my Happy Planner –Floral– (ft Planner Addiction)

This week in my Happy Planner I decided to use this gorgeous free printable kit from Planner Addiction. This is one of kits on the site that are referred to as “monthly kits” and they have so many stickers. I have in the past gotten two full weeks in my planner from one printing of the kit with lots of stickers left over. There are 8 full pages of stickers to choose from. So lots of value for a free kit.

I do love that this kit blends in with the colors on my Happy Planner this month so I don't fell like I have to cover up the color on the weekend. Some weeks it just doesn't go with the stickers I pick and I am happy to cover up the extra color then but it sure is nice to just be able to let it be there. I sure how that Happy Planner has planners next year that don't have the weekends colored in. (fingers crossed)

Since there weren't either To Do or Today headers for the top of the page I just went without the headers this week. Since I was going for a lighter look this week that seems to work just fine. I also think I really like the full decorative boxes offset at the bottom of the page. This week it really works. I know I won't do that every week but I do like it with this particular spread.

Plan with me in my Recollections Planner (ft- Ying X)

This week I am using this fairly plain but very pretty kit from Ying X shop on Etsy. It is a 2 page printable kit and I purchased it for $1.50. It is almost complete for the way I plan. I did add 3 half boxes since I like to have one for each day and the kit only had 4. I know for a lot of you that wouldn't have been an issue at all. I just used some from my sheet from Paper Crown Planner, also a printable kit on Etsy. I am getting a lot of use from that particular set of printables I got a while back.

There were no dinner stickers or even a header for either dinner or this week but I decided that the important header would work just fine for my dinner list.

Overall I really like this kit and for only being a 2 page kit it is really complete. The designs on the decorative boxes remind me a lot of quilt fabrics. I know I have fabric in my stash with most if not all of those designs.

The way the kit comes together it makes for a rather simple lay out but I like those once in a while. By the end of the week when everything gets filled out I am sure it will not look sparse at all.

Horizontal Happy Planner

A few days ago I was at my local Michael's and of course I had to check out the Happy Planner aisle. I found a new 18 month Horizontal Happy Planner and since I had a 60% off coupon I decided to let it come home with me.

Now for planning I really don't like a horizontal planner very much. It is alright in the mini one for my purse but to do any serious planning I just don't like them much. However, for a journal I have been wanting a horizontal Happy Planner ever since I got my first in person look at a Happy Planner. I think it is set up perfectly for a journal especially with the “currently” page that precedes each month.

I love the look of this particular planner and can't wait to get started using it this summer.

Plan with me in my Mini Happy Planner –Daffodils– (ft Design Lovely Studio)

I saw this cute printable kit on Etsy and knew I had to use it this week. One look at my front yard you would know I love Daffodils and this week the ones in my yard are in full bloom. Perfect time to have them in full bloom in my planner too.

The kit is from the Etsy shop Design Lovely Studio and it was reasonably priced at only $1.77. The kit contains 2 full pages of stickers and that is a lot for a mini size planner. If you do all or most of your planning in your Mini Happy Planner I am sure you would find pretty much everything you would need here. I have so many stickers left over this week.

Plan with me in my Happy Planner –Bold & Bright– (ft Vintage Glam Studio)

This week for my Happy Planner I am using another free printable kit from Vintage Glam Studio. I actually found this one a while back when I was looking for a kit to use for Easter. I fell in love with the bright cheery colors.

Since I wanted to not have the shaded area of the weekend showing I simply cut a piece of blank sticker paper to fit the area. Super simple and I looks pretty good too.

Since that still left the dates in a contrasting color I got to use the Happy Planner sized date covers I had found recently at Planner Problem 101. These were also free downloads and there are a lot to choose from on the sight. I recommend taking a few moments to explore the sight for stickers you might want to use.

Once everything was cut and baking was started to peel off the placement of the stickers was fairly quick and simple. Just the way I like it.
