Planner Haul and First Happy Planner Layouts

**This post contains affiliate links and I will be compensated if you make a purchase after clicking through my links. 

I ordered my Happy Planner during last months Blitsy sale.  While I was waiting for it to ship I did manage to find some goodies at my local Dollar Tree, Michaels & Staples.

Our Michaels didn't start carrying the Happy Planner until a couple weeks after I placed my order but I'm happy to say they now have a great selection off add-ons and I can use coupons for them.

I love the arc punch from Staples.  I bought some 6x8 pocket pages and I can add them to the Happy Planner by covering the holes with Washi Tape and then use the Arc punch.

I tested it out with one of the Heidi Swapp Project Life cards and it worked great.  
I added it into my weekly spread as a book mark.

There are tons of great printables out there, many of them free.  
I found the Mason Jar printable in one of the Facebook Groups that I joined.  

I also ordered these great planner stamps from StudioL2E.  

Here's my first layout in my Happy Planner.  I'm using it mostly as a planner and will add in some pictures and journaling as I go.  I've seen a lot of cute planner layouts that are more memory keeping/journaling but I needed a place where I could keep track of appointments and thought this would work well - no more loose pieces of paper or random notes in my phone. 

  I used some retired Stampin' Up cardstock and a co-ordinating stamp for my meal planning area.  I used the StudioL2E stamps for my dailies and then added in some CTMH Coral Shimmer Trim

My second week and it was Canadian Thanksgiving this week, so I used up some scraps of 
CTMH Pathfinding (retired) cardstock. 

I used some free Thanksgiving Cricut cuts that were featured in 
Design Space this week and added some CTMH Bronze Shimmer Trim 
for sparkle, and a couple of shiny stickers from my stash.
