Whether you are completing fully functional layouts or memory planning layouts on the pages of your Happy Planner®, layering a cluster of stickers is an easy way to add color, interest, and an element of fun!
Imagine our surprise when two of our veteran Design Team members submitted projects using this very same technique! Design Team member Jennie McGarvey (IG | YouTube) created a horizontal sticker cluster across two pages on her functional, Frankenplanned spread, while Design Team member Jen Randall (@sadieinspired) adorned the weekend with layered circle-cropped photos and circle stickers in her memory planner.

"I was running low on certain stickers in a couple of my favorite Happy Planner® sticker value packs, and thought 'What to do, what to do?' This was the main inspiration for my planning this week! Why not take leftover stickers I might not have a specific purpose for - and other decorative stickers that I wouldn't reach for - and put them together, in a layered cluster, as decoration for the week?
This decorative strip across the page adds a ton of interest and color, and worked well with my plans for the week. Add in my Frankenplanning (one page from the 'Hello 2017' Seasonal Happy Planner® + one page from my 'This Is Your Year' Happy Planner®) and this is a unique week that is sure to be duplicated in the future!"

"Documenting 2017 in my BIG Happy Planner® is my favorite creative project. I LOVE it! All the fun accessories, stickers and tools make it so fun and rewarding each week. I have been using the Happy Planner® system since January 2016, so finding ways to stay motivated is really important. I like to keep my layouts each week similar (helps with the creative work flow for me). But, at the same time I want to find new ways to keep it fresh. One way to do that is to find a shape or color as a jumping off point. For me, this week it was two things - THE circle and gorgeous navy blue washi.
When I began this week, I was searching through my bin of washi hoping to find some source of inspiration. Then I saw it! I spotted that beautiful floral washi with navy blue (always a color crush) and knew I wanted to use it. Although I LOVE navy blue, I don't always reach for it. I tend to gravitate to soft colors or neutrals. But, I was IN LOVE so I grabbed it and before I could think too long about it, I threw it down on the page. Just a bit along the bottom was all I needed to continue with stickers from the 'Color Story' Sticker Value Pack.
Let's talk circles. I love them. Do you? Using circles is pretty common in the various projects I work on. Also, as I look through past weeks in my Happy Planner® circles are common. But, on this particular week, as I was printing out my pictures, the small photo of the cupcake caught my interest. Naturally, right - it's a cupcake! I wasn't planning on creating a cluster of circles on the right hand side when I started, but the shape of the cupcake inspired me! There were SO many circular stickers in The Happy Planner® line to play with too. It was really fun to create and I think it turned out great."
