I've wanted an all-in-one planner and wallet for sometime. A Pocket TN or an A6 rings were always lingering in my large purse for quite some time.

An then I found the Micro Happy Planner or what they are described on in the interweb as the Happy Planner Notes!

Originally this planner is supposed to be just simple blank note pages with 4 disks and a laminated cover but OH ME OH MY it can be so much more than that.  Let me show you what I've done.


I picked up this notes from my local Joann's (and no Michael's does not carry them, nor AC Moore or Hobby Lobby).  Apparently this is their second launch of this size of planner but I choose this Tropical Vibes cover with HOT PINK disks to make summer feel a whole lot hotter!


Right behind the cover I choose a large quote sticker from the Amy Tangerine 'Be Happy Box' to be my dashboard and focal point of the front of my planner.


Annie Plans Printables makes some fantastic inserts that you can use right along side of the ones the HP Notes provides, so I picked out this 2020 calendar and printed it out on vellum.  The airy feeling and texture of it lends itself well to the whole summer vibe thing.  I know I have a hot cocoa wrapped mug but it still gets pretty chilly at night here in Erie, PA:)


I did make a charm out of extra jewelry making parts.  By slipping it through the rings and dangles below the pages, it doesn't effect the pages turning at all!


Because I made dividers by laminating acetate, it lends itself very well to layering!  On Top, underneath, on the back side...so many options to give your planner some dimension without the bulk!


And speaking of dividers, these are all 3 x 4 with a 1/4 inch tab so relatively speaking, they are pretty tiny. But I did have stickers in my stash that work perfectly even in that small space!



And in that small space you'd think that there wouldn't be a ton of room to ACTUALLY plan.  Think again!  Of course writing multiple timed events in one small 3/4 inch space is challenging even after a number sticker is put in there too,  It's pretty manageable!  I even had enough space on the right side bar, where we are supposed to put the month in, to house a no spend tracker for July.




After this Happy Daya insert, I stuck a couple of her sample sheets right after!  This is the perfect size to use and store all those sampler sheets we have lying around!


Postcards can be cut down like in the instance of this Mommy Lhey unicorn superhero!!  


A trimmed bookmark, some washi and a couple of die cuts make a very easy and cute divider or bookmark.





One of my favorie spots in all the planner...Those guys are so cute hanging out there!  And that bright pink cabachon really makes the planner pop with color too!


Lots of layers!


I love how this little guys works hard for me, taking notes so I can head to the store without forgetting something! (mostly)


I could even do some Disney planning!!!


And don't forget to decorate the inside and backside cover with washi tape. It's a great way to spruce up the inside with no long term effects of damage.


And speaking of the cover!  I found this at Staples in the clearance bin. (here is the deets on that: Eccolo  World Traveler @2018 Travel Wallet ST902L barcode: 826635199441)  Unfortunately, I can't find it anywhere online, but it is perfect with a zippered pocket to hold credit cards, change and money!


I REALLY enjoyed putting this together! 


Thanks for stopping buy everyone!!!
