My friend Shary and I decided to a collab on own YouTube channels that gave planner newbies (or even planner veterans) some of our thoughts, tips, tricks, and hacks about various Happy Planner styles. As requested, I’ve formatted the templates for the Big Happy Planner. Check out my blog for the free printables that fit the Classic Happy Planner.

Hi, my name is Johanna and I love scrapbooking paper pads. Whew… there, I said it. Usually, it’s the 12 x 12 inch paper pads that I go for (especially double sided paper pads). But for some reason, I have quite a few 6 x 6 inch paper pads. I think that I’ve picked them up because they are cute but honestly, they aren’t really functional for what I use them for (my Traveler’s Notebooks).
I enjoy paper crafting. I find it a very relaxing way to be creative and since I’m a huge fan of paper, paper crafting hits all the right notes. For this tutorial, in my #craftseries2019, I’ll show you how to make a quick and easy Jr. Legal Notepad Cover with a velcro flap/closure

Perhaps it’s due to lack of availability at their neighborhood craft store. Perhaps it’s due to no neighborhood craft store. Perhaps it’s due to budget constraints. Whatever the reason, I know I’m not the only one who can’t always get the new shiny things I see on Instagram and YouTube.
Lately, I’ve come to realize that not only do I love the style and quality of Happy Planner products, I LOVE the functionality. More and more, if it isn’t on the disc bound system, it isn’t for me. I love being able to take pages in and out of my Happy Planner system. Continue reading “Easy Lettering/Workbook hack in a Happy Planner”→
