The ninth month of the year is upon us! The NINTH! Where did the other eight fly off to?! We suppose we could look back in our Happy Planners™ for the answer to that question: time flies when you're having fun (planning)!
Hi, all! Amanda Zampelli here! Today I'm sharing how I prepped my September tab and 'Important Dates' page opposite it. I shared my August prep page last month, and revealed that I've encovered the way that works for me to complete these pages: with photos & lots of stickers. Blocking off a section with a different sticker sometimes helps me get it filled. For example, I covered the word 'GOALS' in the 'September Goals' section (see below) with a gold foil sticker that says 'REMINDER'. That way, I could place a photo of my new apartment to remind myself that it's my new 'home sweet home'.

You can see from flipping through the images above that a whole spread comes together one embellishment at a time. Ever since I changed to the hot pink expander discs, I've been choosing pink stickers, pens, and highlighters to embellish with. Because the 'September' tab was brownish/goldish I chose from the huge selection of gold foil mambi stickers as well. I thought to stick a jumbo gold foil '9' for the ninth month of the year -- an idea that after I did it, thought, "Ohhhhh yeahhhhh..."
I love adding photos to my planner pages (see how you can add photos to your Happy Planner™ HERE) and a couple of black & white photos of my boyfriend & I and my new apartment tied this page together.
