Happy Planner Weekly Spreads | June 12-18

Hello! Happy Monday!

Today I am sharing my weekly Happy Planner spreads in my Classic size and Mini HP. First up is my Minty Fresh HP. The hydrangeas in the garden are popping up right now,  so I thought it was a perfect time to use this kit from Plan 4 Happy on Etsy. I love the colors on this layout!Happy Planner Weekly Spread | Jen Manis CreatesNext is my beloved Mini HP. This week I used some Recollections stickers, and some washi from The Planner Society. I also like how this turned out!Mini Happy Planner Weekly Spread | Jen Manis CreatesThanks for stopping by, and have a great week!heart_jen


Happy Planner Weekly Spreads | June 5-11

Hello and happy Monday! I have a couple fun Happy Planner spreads to share today!

First up is my Classic HP. I have been kind of obsessed with collecting pineapple stickers so I could do a pineapple layout. I love all the yellow in this spread. Perfect for the start of summer! Summer & sunshine. Love!Happy Planner Spread June 5-11I always keep it simple for my Mini HP, and this week I just wanted it to feature some fun unicorn stickers from the new Mambi student sticker pack. Magical, huh? 😊

Friday Planner Thoughts

I love Fridays. But I think Fridays in the summertime are even better. I can’t wait to spend a little bit of my weekend with part of my lovely planner stash! I am still obsessed with my Happy Planners! In particular, my mini. Every time I think I can put it away for a bit (so I can enjoy other planners in my stash), I keep coming back for more! Like Mary Poppins says, it’s practically perfect in every way. 😊IMG_8548

Oops… I added a new planner into my stash this past weekend. I love these Recollections planners by Michaels. I have been using hourly sheets in my minis HP for most of this year, and I have been eyeing those expensive Erin Condren hourly planners. I really dig the whole hourly planning thing. And then I saw Recollections had new hourly planners- I had to get one! Come on July 1st!!

So, here’s what I’m going to do to make this planner exactly how I want it to be. I just ordered the covers I really, really wanted from EC, and I’m going to put that bad boy on my Recollections planner! I know the EC covers are just a smidge different than the Recollections, but I don’t care. Frankenplanner all the way!IMG_8554Thanks for stopping by! Enjoy your weekend & happy planning!


The Planner Society | May 2017 Kit

I did it. I finally subscribed to The Planner Society main planner kit. I’ve been looking at these for at least a year, maybe longer. It never seemed like the right time for me to take on something like that. I’ve been scrapbooking since 2006, and I’ve never subscribed to any kit clubs! I’ve purchased one-off kits or past kits, yes, but never committed to a kit club until now!

I love the look of the May kit, but I just kept scrolling on, like I always do. I really love this Palm Springs theme though. And all the Planner Girl goodies- like the clip,the stamp, the notepad…

When the registration stayed open an extra day,  I took it as a sign from above that I was meant to have this kit. I clicked subscribe, and I am so happy I did! When the box came, it was like Christmas morning!! I don’t know how long I’ll keep my subscription going, but as long as they look as beautiful as this, it may be forever!

Here are just a few things I’ve made with the contents of this gorgeous kit…and I still have a few things left to use!

I purchased this kit on my own, and I only endorse companies and products that I truly love & use, and that I think my readers will love too!



Weekly Happy Planner Spread | May 29-June 4

Hello! I hope you’re enjoying a long Memorial Day weekend. I didn’t have big plans for the weekend- but I did make time to play in my planners, so I’ve enjoyed the weekend so far! I hope you’ve found some time to be creative too!

Here’s my spread in my Classic Happy Planner… featuring the May Planner Society Kit. I’m so in love!! 😍 It’s my very first kit, and I’ll have a full review on Wednesday for you. IMG_8546Next up is my Mini Happy Planner. It’s very simple this week, though I did add a few Planner Society goodies here. The rest are from Mambi.IMG_8567Thanks for stopping by today & have a great week ahead!


Weekly Happy Planner Spreads | May 22-28

Hello! Can you believe we are in the last week of May already? I sure can’t! I am so ready for some summer fun though!

Here are my weekly spreads… First up is my Classic Happy Planner. I made this a little different this week. I used some scrapbooking supplies- mainly Dear Lizzy and Maggie Holmes. I love birds (see all my posts about them!), so I thought this was a good week to put them on display in my planner! I think this spread turned out cute.  🙂IMG_8452Once again, I kept my Mini HP spread simple, but colorful! I just bought a couple more packs of Mambi stickers, so that’s what I used here. IMG_7475Speaking of new stickers, here’s a peek at my recent haul! I’ll share more later!IMG_7435Thanks for stopping by today & have a great week!


Custom Happy Planner

Hello! Happy Wednesday! And the weeks keep on rolling by…

Today I just wanted to share a couple of ways I have personalized my Happy Planner. This is my Classic size Minty Fresh HP. I love this design because 1. Rose gold rings 2. No colors on the weekend or colored bars- it’s a simple, black & white weekly layout

But, I get kind of bored looking at the same cover, so I remembered I still had a blank, custom cover that I got from Michaels last fall, so I went to work. I love my florals, and I’ve been lusting over this Erin Condren cover, so I wanted to create something that would inspire me as much as that cover does. 😍 I decided that a couple of recent photos of our Azaleas would fit the bill! I printed two different photos out that would fit into my cover, added my name in Lightroom, and that’s it! I love how it turned out!

IMG_8372IMG_8373IMG_8374Next, I am obsessed with those rose gold rings, you know, so when I saw that JoAnn’s was carrying them, I bought two packs. Now I have rose gold rings on my everyday HP, the extra months from this planner that I don’t carry with me, and some for my mini HP as well. I’m a happy girl! 🙂

IMG_7369How have you customized your Happy Planner?


Happy Planner Weekly Spreads | May 15-21

Hello! Happy Monday! Hope everyone enjoyed Mother’s Day weekend!

Today I am sharing my weekly spreads with you. First up is my Classic Happy Planner. I wanted to make a really soft, springlike layout, because with Memorial Day weekend coming up quickly, I will be in full summer mode, so I won’t want to use such soft colors anymore. So, I gathered up some Mambi stickers from the rose gold pack, some Hobby Lobby floral washi, and some Marie Antoinette printables I got from Etsy earlier this year, and created a spread that I love!  🙂IMG_8344Next up is my Mini Happy Planner. I used some Mambi floral stickers (yes, I am almost out of them!), and a little Cocoa Daisy floral washi. Pretty!IMG_8345Thanks for stopping by today, & have a great week!


This Week in my Happy Planners

Hello! It’s the start of another week already! I can’t believe a week of May is done! I guess maybe it’s harder for me to believe because last week all it did was rain, and our temperatures crashed into the 40’s. Brrr! Bring spring back, asap, thanks.

Anyway, I I am here to share this week’s spreads in my Happy Planner, before the pen. I love this layout in my Classic HP. I cannot get enough of these Mambi florals. I am determined to use all of them. And, flowers are perfect with Mother’s Day coming up this weekend! The xoxo tip-in card is by Heidi Swapp.IMG_8328And here is my Mini HP. I used Recollections stickers here. I keep the decor minimal in this planner, because, for one, it’s super tiny, and I write a daily quote here, so I need room to write.IMG_7353Have a great week ahead! Thanks for stopping by!
