Happy Planner add on: Watercolor Paper

I love Franken Planning!

In my very first happy planner, I took outdated calendar pages and mixed media’d all over them to make backgrounds for art journaling.

I’ve been using them as backgrounds for lettering practice.

But I wanted some heavier paper in my planner for Watercolor play.

First I traced an old divider as a template.

Then I cut it out & used the happy planner punch to add it to my Franken Planner 😍

Happy Planner Reboot

Ugh. I caved. I bought a new happy planner. I blame my craft store enabler. πŸ˜‚

It’s so PRETTY

Here’s my last happy planner. I liked the customizing options but I hated the way my pages got eaten.

The remnants of two planners I cobbled together.

The new planner is 2019 only. So I stole an unused month from the remains of the previous two planners.

I washi-d the top and stickered over the dates.

And worked my way through the rest of December.

In my old happy planner I had art journaled some out of date months so I added those in too.

I’m also experimenting with building my own dividers. 😁

So the bitchy planner has returned to happy planning. Guess I’m a happy bitch planner now. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

New Pin Board!

NPR but definitely organization related!

I have this 2 ft x 3 ft cork board that has seen better days. Cue me forgetting to take a before pic…again. πŸ˜‚

Here’s the new support for the back of the cork. Before it was just foam core and cardboard. The cork was warping from lack of support. I bought new foam core.

And lots of pretty fabric. I should not be left unattended at Joann’s. I even called the husband to tell him I was skipping through the store with my daughter trying to buy ALL THE THINGS. πŸ˜‚

Cut the foam core the size of the plywood backing.

Glued the foam core to the plywood.

Glued the foam core & plywood to the cork.

Laid it cork side up and centered the fabric.

Lots of spray adhesive.

Put it back in its frame & added some support pieces at the edges.

Ta! Da!

Finished and hung up.

IT’S SO CREEPY I COULD DIE!

I fucking love it. 😍
