Happy Planner Weekly Spreads | August 21-27

Hello!! Happy Monday!

I’m here to share my new weekly spreads in my Happy Planners…

First up is my Classic Happy Planner. I always get nostalgic around the back to school time, and I wanted an excuse to use some of my cute school themed Mambi stickers, so here’s what I came up with:

Planner Details Roundup

Hello! If you’re like me, you can easily spend a couple hours a day on Instagram just looking at all the prettiness. Photography inspires me like nothing else, so instead of just looking at photographs, I am trying to take more of them myself!

Here is a roundup of some of my favorite recent planner related photographs I’ve taken. I’ve shared some on my IG account… some I have not. Enjoy!

Do you have a planning related account (or just one with pretty pictures!)? I would love to follow you. Leave your IG handle in the comments!

Happy Planner Weekly Spreads | August 7-13


I am so excited to share my weekly layouts this week! In my Classic Happy Planner, I used the new The Pink Passport paper pad from Hobby Lobby that I bought last week. I have been purchasing scrapbook paper for over ten years now, and this paper stands out in my top three favorite paper collections easily. It’s just so my style! The *only* thing that would have made this paper pad perfect in my eyes would have been if they included a poodle design somewhere. Oh well.  🙂

Ok, on to the layout. I loooove it! I have a lot of embellishments here, but I still have plenty of room to write. I also used the rose gold Mambi sticker pack for my to do lists.

Grab one now before I buy all of them! 😂The Pink Passport - Hobby Lobby | JM CreatesI’ve really been falling back in love with my Happy Planner lately. I go through phases where I don’t enjoy it for some reason, but I always come back!

Now, on to my Mini Happy Planner. I resisted using more of that paper pad here (well, except for the little sunglasses), so I used the rest of my Planner Society May stickers and some washi this week. I also love this spread!

This week was all about the red, white, & blue!For the second week of July, I wanted to incorporate some of my June Planner Society kit. I fussy cut a couple of florals and used a stamp on this spread. I love the picnic vibes!In the third week of the month, I went back to my Mambi sticker books. I love my pinks!  🙂And for the final week of the month, I used the Sunshine & Happiness line from Simple Stories that I have been saving since last fall.

Scrapbook Layout | Perfection


Today I wanted to share a new layout… that’s right, I finally was able to make some new stuff!  🙂 I had to scrap some new photos I took of our rose of sharon in the garden. It is gorgeous! When it blooms, it kind of kicks off fall for me!

Scrapbook Layout | Stargazer


Today I wanted to stop in and share a pretty new layout. It’s pretty in pink.  🙂 The stargazer lilies have been beautiful this season, and the bright pink is so refreshing to me. I paired my photo with some Dear Lizzy & Felicity Jane papers, and sequins. It’s time to use my stash of sequins more!

Thanks for stopping by today!

Scrapbook Layout | Bloom On

Hello! Happy Sunday to you. As I sit here typing, it’s snowing/hailing outside. Yep, and it’s the middle of May. Not cool. It’s only for today, so I’m holding onto that thought.

I wanted to share a spring layout today. I am still busy documenting the loveliness that was our cherry tree. It’s all green now, but the photos I took will hold me over until next spring!  🙂

I used Felicity Jane and Heidi Swapp papers on my layout. They are pure bliss to me!
