So I like this…

Now this has me grinning, girls: my usual scraptherapy thing, using my thrifty little printables… but look how pretty it all looks in my Felicity Jane planner?

I can clearly no longer make a page a day, but I have a cunning plan…

I’ve decided that planner pages might be the direction to take this project, only I don’t have any yet.

I don’t want to start memory planning, but I think I might like to start ‘therapy planning’!

I spent a good few hours last night researching planner pages to buy for this project and the answer didn’t leap out at me for a long time.

The ones in our shops are covered in little details that I don’t want; the ones on eBay seem to use questionable fonts; I was overwhelmed by the sheer variety on Etsy and a lot of the others were ruled.

But finally Goldilocks struck gold. Well, kinda.

The postage wasn’t the cheapest, but these Kikki K pages are simple, clean and ready to be decorated Suse-style!

I’m hoping to still make full pages, pocket pages, mixed media pages – the usual mix – but my staple page will become a smaller daily diary space.

Just enough for some thoughts, a few pretty die-cuts and a small photo.

And as far as the expense of new planner binders goes… well, I figure everyone needs birthday and Christmas gifts, right? Lol.

  1. Ooh, this sounds incredibly similar to the direction I want to take things… a little more of an overview of the week with more thoughts and a few pretty bits added in 🙂 xx

    I knew your printables would be perfect for a planner, it looks gorgeous! In addition to my scraptherapy book, I also journal in a travelers notebook. I devote a two page spread for each week. There I jot down snippets of the past week, tape in a small pic or two and most importantly, make sure I draw (usually a portrait). I love to draw, but have not done as much lately. So far, it’s working out nicely…

  3. I bought a BEAUTIFUL Heidi Swapp planner a few years ago, a mint green, watercolor looking cover. I loved doing it, but I quit after about 6 months because I was doing Project Life too and it just seemed repetitive. Also only 6 months fit well in my pretty, little planner. And I wasn’t embellishing very much at all…

    If it were me, I’d do memory planning or PL. As for you, I don’t think you’re doing PL, right? Therapy Planning would/could be a completely different thing.

    I’m anxious to see what you come up with. I have a couple pretty planner books in storage, just waiting for the right project to go in them…

  4. It’s just the right balance and so pretty! I use a Happy Planner for the same reasons – I can do as much or as little as works for my needs. And I use traveler’s notebook or Project Life for other memory projects. Strikes the right balance for now 😊
