Last spring, when I was at SNAP, I fell in love with Happy Planners! Have you seen them before? They are GORGEOUS! They are made by Create 365 and come in a bunch of beautiful designs. You could literally spend an hour standing at Michael’s in the Happy Planner aisle trying to figure out which planner fits your personality the best. (Ask me how I know this.)
The Happy Planner that ended up coming home to live with me is the Fresh Floral Happy Planner.
Isn’t it pretty? I love it SO MUCH!!!
There are a ton of fun accessories you can buy for your Happy Planner from a pen holder attachment, to stickers and sticky notes, to folders to hold papers to a hole punch to add your own pages. Happy Planner also sells themed inserts that they call extension packs for your planner with the themes of fitness, recipes, wedding planning and home.
People turn their Happy Planners into serious works of art. Just check out the #HappyPlanner hashtag on Instagram and be prepared to be blown away! I’ll be honest, the planner is so pretty and people make them into such works of art, that I was a little bit intimidated to use mine.
I decided to create some of my own stencils to use in my happy planner to get me inspired and to help me make my planner a little bit prettier. These stencils could be used with any planner. I hope that you like them, that you decide to make them for your planner, and that they inspire you to create some pretty planner pages.
Read on for my instructions on how to make DIY Planner Stencils.
How To Make DIY Planner Stencils (Perfect For The Happy Planner)
-Plastic Poster Board or stencil plastic (I found this with the poster board at Michaels. It came in a big sheet like poster board and said poster board on it, but it was made of a plastic material that is perfect for stencils)
-Hello Creative Family Stencil Design in Cricut Design Space (You can find it here. You will want a membership to Cricut Design Space to cut these stencils because then you’ll be able to cut it for free. A one month membership is $9.99 or a 1 year membership is $95.)
–Cricut Strong Grip Cutting Mat
Step 1: Open the file for the Hello Creative Family Stencil Design in Cricut Design Space.
Step 2: Click “Go”
Step 3: Cut your plastic poster board into 9 inch by 7 inch pieces and stick to them to the cutting mat.
Step 4: Set your Cricut dial to Poster Board+ and cut.
Step 5: Remove stencil from cutting mat and weed out any pieces that didn’t fall out on their own.
Enjoy your new planner stencils!
Tell me: Do you write in a planner? What kind of planner do you use? Is your planner more pretty, functional, or a mix of both?
