Me and My Big Ideas Haul

IMG_1608Me and My Big Ideas ‘The Happy Planner combines the size and layout of the Erin Condren Life Planner with the flexibility of an ARC system, allowing pages to be removed and added. I’m going to do a separate review on the planners themselves on my other blog but I wanted to share the other bits & bobs I bought.

I placed an order directly with MAMBI and paid ridiculous shipping because apparently I’m a fool. I found out the day after my order shipped that online scrapbook stores in the UK and EU also stock The Happy Planner and MAMBI accessories, even Amazon. You may have to wait for stock but it beats paying custom charges.


First the Inspiration Cards – 24 cards with inspirational sayings such as “I am happy”. I bought The Happy Planner to use as my scrapbook journal so these will probably work really well.


I also bought the To Do Stickers – Bright and Don’t Forget. Beautiful vibrant stickers, not much more to be said since I haven’t used them yet.


I decided to buy two planners because the monthly overview is different. I wanted the Good Things planner (top) because I thought the ‘currently’ list with reading, planning, loving etc would really complement my journaling. However I also bought the My Life planner in case I preferred the alternative overview, intending to give the spare to my daughter.


I also bought some accessories from Scrobby – the Sticky notes, extender discs, two notepads and additional notepaper. I ended up buying the Gift planner because my daughter didn’t like my two choices.

So now I have a spare Happy Planner which I’m probably going to giveaway on my other blog sometime this month. If you’re based in the UK you may want to check that out.
