Welcome to the new 2016-2017 Happy Planner™ BLOG HOP featuring posts by the me & my BIG ideas Design Team! I’m excited to give you a tour and show you the style of my new 'Hello Life'  Happy Planner™. It doesn't start till July but I'll share with you how I plan on using it.

I first laid eyes on all of the new Happy Planners ™ at CHA this year and I couldn't contain myself! WOW! So many styles to choose from how could I just pick one?! Talk about #planneraddictproblems! It took me awhile to choose "THE ONE" at the mambi Design Team meet-up that I could add to my existing Happy Planner™ collection. I knew I wanted one that had softer colors since 2 of my other planners had bolder brighter color themes.

Finally I chose the 'Hello Life' Happy Planner ™. Here are some points on why I chose this beauty over the rest: 

  • I've been into soft watercolor patterns lately and if you are like me then you'll love this planner. You'll see washes of pink, teal, yellow, and gold touches. 
  • The font used throughout the planner is really pretty and different from the other planners in my collection. 
  • One of the features of the 'Hello Life' Happy Planner™ that really caught my eye are the weekend ombre patterns. SO PRETTY! They go from dark to light. 
  • The Monthly Prep Page fits my style. I like how everything is laid out and the 'Currently" section will be used a lot to prep my month. 
  • The monthly tab photos are gorgeous! Each month's photo ties in with the overall theme of the planner nicely. 


I plan on using my planner as my personal and work planner when July comes around. I'm so happy that the MORNING, AFTERNOON, and EVENING headlines have been removed. This gives me the freedom to  make my own headlines and make the planner fit my schedule and gives me more freedom to be creative. 

Don't forget to grab the matching washi tape- Hello Life Washi Tape when you pick-up your new planner on March 1st right from the mambi website!

Thanks so much for stopping by! Keep the HOP going by heading over to mambi Design Team member Cassie’s blog to see which Happy Planner™ she's got her hands on!

Planner Society April Planner Subscription Kit


I'm always a fan of subscription kits especially if has to do with planner or crafting supplies but I feel it's extra special when you are on the design team! 


Lets start from the beginning! I was recently asked to join the Planner Society Design Team head by Christy Tomlinson.  If you follow Planner Society on Instagram or follow Christy herself you know all her creations are AMAZING and BEAUTIFUL! She truly is an artist and I just love her style. So it was a big honor to be chosed to be part of her venture- a monthly planner subscription kit. I get to join these amazing ladies every month to show you how to put together your planner, Midori, journal, etc. with the content of the kit. I have to tell you it's been super fun playing with everything you get! Let me show you April's Kit. 



I totally forgot to take a picture of the full contents of the kit before I started planning for my YouTube tutorial but I did manage to take this shot.  There's so many other goodies that I didn't get to fit in the picture but don't worry you'll get to see all of it in my video below. The daily planner insert is from Christy as well! She has so many different designs to choose from, pick your favorite from her Etsy shop. 

If your new to the whole planning thing or have been decorating and using a paper planner for sometime then you'll know how hard it is at times to get supplies that all match. With The Planner Society Subscription Kit everything is done for you- everything matches perfectly. You have enough supplies to decorate your front planner (you'll see in my video), inserts and other crafty projects. For more ideas make sure you follow the other beautiful ladies on the creative team! 

Here's some pictures of my gold Large Kikki.K Planner beautified with everything from the April kit. 

Ready for my tutorial?! Watch it below!
