Hi friends! I hope you had a wonderful Christmas with family and friends – we sure did! But now that the holidays are over, most of us are thinking ahead to getting organized for the New Year. I am always excited to set up my new calendar or planner, and this year I am all googly-eyed over my new Happy Album Planner by Creative Memories!*
The Happy Album was released last summer and I’ve enjoyed using mine as my personal scrapbook where I create fast layouts about things that make me Happy! Lot’s of folks thought it was a great size for a planner and sent in requests to CM for calendar pages to use in it. CM listened and not only created calendar pages, but new covers, too! I love the Blush Cover with the gold foil grid pattern on it and will be using that to do what I call “plannerbooking” this coming year!
So, what is “plannerbooking”? It’s a combination of planning and memory keeping! For each month in 2019 I have set up a two-page calendar spread to do some high-level monthly planning, followed by a two-page spread where I can document the month with photos and journaling! I’m also using some of the previously released Happy Album Kits to decorate and personalize my album. Take a look at the video below as I give you an overview and a few how-to tips!
Fun, right? I think I’m going to really enjoy combining my planning and memory-keeping this year! here’s a closer look at my January pages, all ready to go!
