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In my very first happy planner, I took outdated calendar pages and mixed media’d all over them to make backgrounds for art journaling.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 😍
I saw someone had done this so I had to try it. I’m hoping it helps with the chewed pages issue.
Before. An out of date page to experiment on.
I ran washi down the punches side of the page.
I covered the opposite side with a scrap piece of paper to catch the bits of washi so it wouldn’t jam the hole punch.
Ta! Da! A happy planner page with a washi edge.
Ugh. I caved. I bought a new happy planner. I blame my craft store enabler. 😂
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In my old happy planner I had art journaled some out of date months so I added those in too.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. 😂😂😂
When your washi comes in a box, you’ve ordered too much. 😂
(Shut the fuck up. No such thing! 😂)
And here’s it’s safely napping in its new home. 😍
Attended the most amazing meetup this past weekend!
It was run by the Wicked Planner Group and held inside an armory/castle in Massachusetts.
This was the spooky spectacular view when you looked up!
First I was dressed in a unicorn onesie but I was roasting inside that get up! 😂
So I switched to a Tardis dress so I could breathe. 😂
I got to try foiling for the first time. I made a shaker dashboard. I met wonderful planner nerds and planner shop owners.
And WE GOT AMAZING SWAG!
An ab-fab night! I can’t wait for the next one!
