Marketplace Monday!

Happy Monday everyone! Coming back from a weekend is always hard, but for those readers with Happy Planners, today is the BIG new product release! That has to make the day a little better right?

In that spirit I thought I would share some of my recent Etsy planner purchases. Personally, I love having a wide variety of styles in my planner, so I like trying out new shops and seeing how they can be incorporated into my weekly and monthly layouts.

First up is Foxy Prints Co. I found this shop through an Etsy search and fell in love with her Kawaii Cuties line of icon stickers. Her shop is currently running a great deal on these adorable little guys, so I encourage checking her out!

For my selection I chose the pay day icons, movies, shopping, iced coffee, and make up brushes. The seller was sweet enough to even take my suggestion of adding hockey to her sports line up, and created a custom sheet just for me! It is always great when a shop has a passion for what they create, and takes time for customer interaction.

Lastly, is a shop that many Disney planner addicts know and love, Pretty Sheepy!

I am prepping my July layouts to be all Disney themed, as we have a family vacation coming up and seeing all of this Disney just makes it that much more exciting! This was my first time ordering from her and I decided to go with her sampler/weekly layout mini kits.  I also chose a sheet of icon stickers and because The Haunted Mansion is my favorite thing at the parks, the additional Haunted Mansion themed sticker sheet.

Here is an example of what each weekly sampler comes with, and with some added stickers or washi, makes for the perfect layout!


These kits are just adorable and with a little trimming can fit perfectly in The Happy Planner. Life Planners are in luck as they are pre-designed to fit your layout boxes.



I cannot wait to start planning with all of these goodies.

Thanks for reading and Happy Planning!


Printable Time!

I was recently featured on the official Paper Mate Instagram page with my photo that contained a printable I designed! It was a pretty exciting day in the life of this long time stationary nerd!

I’ve made my Goal Setting printable available as a PDF and it is attached at the bottom of this post. Please keep in mind that it was designed to fit the Create 365, Happy Planner dimensions or any other 7 x 9 planner types.

The printable is designed for 8.5 x 11 paper and features a cutting guide. Make sure to adjust your print settings if necessary) to standard US letter size paper, and also to -the box that says “Fit to Page”.  Once printed, use scissors or a paper cutter and its ready to be punched and placed!

The layout is my own but the fonts and graphics (light bulb, pencil, diamond) come from the amazing blog, Angie Makes. Below you can find direct links to the font bundle and ranunculus clip-art:
