Happy Planner Hourly Overlay

As I eagerly await the arrival of the hourly inserts for the Happy Planner in October, I decided to try out my own version so I can utilize my current Happy Planner layout. I’ve been playing around with different layouts but have yet to find peace. I’m thinking I may not; however, I like to have options available depending on the week. I created these to be used on sticker paper as an overlay, one for each side of the page. I decided to go this route instead of creating an entirely new insert because I really do love the decoration on my Botanical Garden planner and I wanted to keep the notes sidebar. This is sized for the Classic Happy Planner. The times run from 6 AM to 8 PM.

You can print these and cut on your Silhouette (cut lines are already provided but double check your settings) or print via the PDF and cut with a paper trimmer or scissors. Make sure your printer setting have the “auto rotate and fit” unchecked and the scale as “actual size” or “100%”.

TMNT Free Printable

It’s been a little while since I’ve created stickers to share so I figured it was about time. After profusely searching the internet for a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles planner sticker freebie (or even one I could order), I came up empty handed. What’s a girl to do? Create her own of course! This week is my baby boy’s 3rd birthday, so in honor of him, I created a TMNT sampler for use in the Happy Planner. (You can use the stickers with most planners; however, you’ll have to trim the full boxes a little.)

It’s Planner Time!

I’ve always used some sort of planner to help organize my time. I have tried various ones over the years, including electronic versions like Cozi or the calendar app on my iPhone, hourly, horizontal, etc. but have yet to find peace with the method I was using. My bestie then introduced me to Plum Paper Planner. They have various options available to suit anyone’s needs and the regular planners come with several weekly layout options. At first, it was a little overwhelming with all the options but I eventually chose the hourly layout option since that was what I had been doing since becoming a Thirty-One consultant (I utilized time block scheduling each day). I like that the planner offered more writing room which I desperately needed because I tend to write largely. In addition, I like that there is extra room for notes and a “top 3” under each day. I also liked that the weekly pages have a vertical layout. Most planners you buy at conventional stores have horizontal layouts and don’t allow me enough room to fill in my day. One of the other positives with Plum is their ability to customize. I don’t mean adding a name here or monogram there, but full customization: name, monogram, or picture on the cover; font choices; color choices; pattern choices; and add-ons! Check out http://plumpaper.com/ to get the full scoop on everything you can do with it (I promise you won’t be sorry). I have since moved on to a different planner that I’m completely in love with – MAMBI’s The Happy Planner. I like that this one allows me to add and remove pages with ease and the boxes are even bigger than Plum’s so I rarely run out of room. (In later posts, I’ll show you my planners and the differences between them.)

So back to my Plum Planner – I started using it in November but hadn’t delved into doing anything but writing down my work and K’s school schedule. It wasn’t really working the way I wanted it to. Then my bestie told me about decorating it (say what?! Lisa Frank anyone?). I checked out her Instagram and joined a few groups on Facebook and oh my! It’s like a light shined straight down from heaven! My love of crafting was mixed with my need to have a more functional way to keep my life organized! And down the rabbit hole I fell. So many names, brands, stickers, washi (think smaller, thinner duct tape), and Etsy. Now, all of that can definitely get pricey if you let it; BUT, the crafter in me knew I could create my own for way, way less. Don’t get me wrong, I love the convenience of already made and cut stickers and some of them are just downright beautiful, but I just can’t justify spending money on something I can make myself. Plus, I can make it exactly how I want. Now I know some of you are thinking, what? Are you 8? Hear me out… It’s a lot like scrapbooking. You create weekly “layouts” using stickers and washi but you have your weekly plans instead of pictures (unless you choose to go that route – I don’t personally). It’s functional and makes me WANT to accomplish my tasks. It also gives me a creative outlet and an hour each week for just me. The very first one I created was for the blizzard earlier this year and features a beautiful blue and pink snowflake theme.

My goal is to release something new at least 2 times a month (I have 4 kids – 3 who are 4 and under so that may not always be doable). I have a few more that I’ll be posting over the next few days so enjoy and I can’t wait to see your layouts! Leave a comment below and tell me what you like about the theme and if there’s anything different I can do for future.
