This is not a sponsored post. I just really, really love my Happy Planner and want to share the love and ideas!
We have officially moved into August in our planners. Is it just me, or has 2016 FLOWN by? The years go by so much faster the older you get! This is week six me in my Botanical Garden Happy Planner. Today I wanted to write an overview of my sixth week in my Botanical Garden planner! To catch the past weeks in this planner, click the link(s) below:
I loved the pink color scheme in July in this planner, and I knew the orange and green of August would really stretch me creatively. I never, ever reach for my orange and green supplies, so I knew this would be all new for me! I loved the floral accents though, and knew I didn’t want to just cover them up. Above you will see an overview of my week before the pen. I think it turned out so pretty! I was really excited to start filling it in.
Since I didn’t have very many supplies that matched this color scheme, I decided to make my own! I love that Me and My Big Ideas has so many coordinating accessories with these new planners. I pulled out my Botanical Garden pocket cards, and found the card that matched the floral designs. I then used my 1 1/2 inch circle punch to punch extra embellishments, and I used my paper trimmer to cut my own “washi” for the header spots. I LOVE how it turned out because it matches the floral accents PERFECTLY!
Of course, I am still sticking to my dinner inserts. I have to meal plan at the beginning of the week, or else we would go out to eat every single night. I used another matching pocket page card this week to write out our meal plan for the week, and then I punched it using my blue punch. I also punched the “Hello Sunshine” matching pocket page card. I love being able to add in these extra cards to my planner each week!
Above you will see the first half of my week after the pen. I like to post my mid week spread every Wednesday over on my Instagram account because I think it helps my followers to see how I’m filling it throughout the week. It was back to work for me Monday-Tuesday and I had a meeting Wednesday morning, but I spent Wednesday afternoon having “Me Time” and it was glorious! I really loved how the week was turning out!
And here is my second half of the week filled out. My second part of the week was actually pretty relaxing- it was my last two days of summer, and I soaked it up! My twin sister and I had a sister day on Thursday. Friday was super relaxing as well and ended with the Dixie Chicks concert with some girlfriends! The concert was amazing, but SO HOT. Note to Self: Don’t go to an outdoor concert in August in Dallas! GAG! But we still had a lot of fun!
Above you will find the final completed spread for this week. I love how it turned out! Pretty much all of the stickers I used this week came from the pink value pack of stickers or the purple value pack of stickers from Me and My Big Ideas. If you don’t have these sticker packs yet, get them NOW! They are amazing!! Also, I used papermate flair pens in this spread!
I am really proud of myself for making the orange and green work for me. It turned out way better than I could have imagined! I am excited to see what else I can create for the rest of the month of August.
