Join us for the February 2017 Instagram Challenge!

I know all of you Squadettes love a good challenge. That’s why I’m excited to share this one with you today! One of the amazing admins of our Facebook group, Jaynelle, is helping us bring you a super fun monthly Instagram challenge.

Join us for our Planner Squad Instagram Challenge for February 2017-with FREE printables!

Introducing the Instagram Challenge

So, what is the Instagram Challenge exactly? Well, basically, Jaynelle (aka @Sweetjaybaby on IG) is going to supply us with a daily photo challenge revolved around planning.

To participate in the challenge, all you have to do is take a picture that reflects that day’s prompt and then share it on Instagram for the rest of us to see.

What’s in it for Me?

We tried to host an Instagram challenge in the past but unfortunately didn’t get much participation with it. We decided to give it a try again, only this time we have a bit of an incentive for those who participate.

That’s right, we’ll be hosting monthly challenge giveaways! 

How do you enter? Simply use the hashtag #PSIGChallenge everytime you share your challenge post. Each photo you share using that hashtag will get you one entry in the giveaway.

This month we will be giving away a $15 gift card to the Planner Squad Shoppe

Shop Owners – We’re Looking for Challenge Sponsors!

That’s right, we’re looking for shops who would like to sponsor a monthly giveaway by supplying prizes.

Any shop who sponsors the giveaway will have their shop name and IG handle on the free challenge printables for that month. We will also shine a spotlight on your shop in the blog post for that month’s challenge.

Recollections Spiral Planner Giveaway

Want to find out more about the Recollections Spiral Planner? Get a sneak peek plus enter to win our giveaway for one planner + 2 bonus sticker packs. Giveaway ends 1/1/17.

 

I love finding new planners to learn more about and enjoy, don’t you?  I was as happy as a kid at Christmas to find the Recollections Spiral Planner earlier this year.  And now I am triple as happy that Planner Squad is able to host a giveaway for this amazing planner!

Cue twinkly lights and lots of glittery tinsel!

Have you had a chance to check out the Recollections Spiral Planner available at Michael’s (Shop Michaels Online)? Gor-geous!

I am new to the world of spiral planners.  I have been told by some very trustworthy planner girls that this planner is very similar to Erin Condren but at a much more affordable price.

Cue pipers piping, heralds singing, and lords a-leapin’!

With my super duper special Michael’s 50% off coupon (if you are not a Michaels Rewards member, you need to be!  Free to join and extra discounts!), I got my hands on a Recollections Goal Spiral Planner. I am totally in love with this planner that I keep for blogging.

I was so in love with that goal planner that I went back (with another 50% off coupon!) and picked up a large Recollections Spiral Planner that I will use for homeschool planning in 2017.  (I have already started to prepare it because it is so dang cute and is calling to me!)

Jenn was bit by the same planner bug and has two Recollection Spiral planners, too.  During one of our many chats, we decided that Planner Squad had to do a giveaway.

Recollections Spiral Planner Giveaway

One lucky Squadette will win one 7.5″ x 9.25″ Recollections Creative Year 12 Month Spiral Planner (Vertical).  Jenn and I both agreed that this cover with inspirational words and phrases was super cute and needed to be our giveaway planner.

There are four awesome features of this planner that I must point out:

  1.  4 sheets of functional and fun stickers
  2. double-sided pocket folder
  3. clear zip envelope
  4.  laminated covers with blank insides that you could use dry erase marker to jot down notes again and again

Take a sneak peek at the Recollections Spiral Planner & enter to win this one in a giveaway!

Mini-Happy Planner Giveaway

Enter to win this adorable Mini-Happy Planner + more awesome planner goodies at Planner Squad!  Giveaway ends Dec. 3.  Find more planner resources & freebies over at plannersquad.com

Do you hear the bells and whistles?  Do you see the fireworks going off?  It’s time once more for a Planner Squad giveaway-let the celebration begin!

Jenn and I love to bring these fabulous giveaways to our Squadettes.  It is our little way of saying you for being a loyal planner girl.  (And if you are not a Squadette yet, what are you waiting for?  Pop on over to our rockin’ Facebook Group and jump in the fun!)

This month, Jenn selected the most adorable giveaway and we are so pumped up to get it started.  A Mini-Happy Planner!  (Bet you guessed that from the title!  You are so smart!)

We know how hard it has been for some of you to find these sweet things.  When Jenn saw this cutie, she immediately thought of our Squadettes and messaged me.  “We have got to get this for a giveaway!  The Squadettes will love it!”  Isn’t Jenn a wise one?

In case you are not familiar with the Mini-Happy Planner, I will share a few fun facts.  Happy Planners come from the glorious company known as Me & My Big Ideas (a.k.a. MAMBI).  These gems are super fun to decorate and customize.

We loved their standard size Happy Planner and fell head over heels for the Big Happy Planner.  And then, MAMBI outdid itself.

A compact ball of planner fun wrapped up in style!

Here are the details on the beautiful Mini-Happy Planner in this giveaway:

  • pages are 4.5″ x 7″
  • same laminated front & back covers that are also 4.5″ x 7″
  • undated
  • disc bound
  • monthly and weekly layouts

And here are some pictures to get you drooling over the Mini-Happy Planner we are giving away!  Squeal!

Planner Squad Shoppe Grand Opening! Enter to Win a Mystery Swag Bag!

We’ve been talking about it for months now, Amy and I. The prospect of someday opening a store here at Planner Squad so that our amazing Squadettes could stock up on awesome goodies to help support their planner addiction! We kept saying “Wouldn’t it be amazing if we could open a store someday?” Notice the key word there… “someday“.

In our minds, “someday” would be further down the road. Much further. After all, Planner Squad was only just launched just a bit over six months ago! Little did we know that the site, and the Squadette community, would grow so fast in such a short amount of time! Our heads are still spinning with how fast we are growing, and we now ask each other almost daily on our voxer chats, “Can you even believe it?! I never thought…”

But it did! Here we are!! Opening day for Planner Squad Shoppe is finally here!!

Planner Squad Shoppe

We have been having so much fun picking out supplies to stock the shoppe for opening day! While there are so many things we would like to add to the shoppe as we grow, we decided to start out small with the basics: stickers, washi, pens, apparel, and some accessories. Let me give you a quick introduction to each of the items you can now purchase!

Stickers

I have been working like a mad person all week coming up with some awesome stickers to help pretty up those planners! While we have a limited number of listings to start off, there are a lot more coming in the very near future! Here’s a sneak peek at one of the sheets now available!

Washi

As Amy always says, washi tape makes the world go around! We’ve found some really cute and unique rolls of washi to offer up for sale here! This is good quality washi too – and you won’t find these in any of your local stores!

Apparel

Show the world how proud you are to be a Squadette with these awesome t-shirts and tank tops! When you buy these items you are not only supporting Planner Squad, but also another small business as well!

These shirts are designed by Planner Squad, but are made by Jenn’s very talented sister in law, Gloria T. Roberts of Gloria’s Custom Creations. You can also check her out on facebook here. She loves custom orders!

We hope there will be more designs added in the future!

Stock Demand

We sincerely hope that you love everything we have picked out for you so far! Since making our first stock purchases, excitement for the shop has really grown! We are blown away with your excitement, which has made us giddy with excitement ourselves (and now, we’re afraid we may not have bought enough stock.. ha!).

That being said, please keep in mind that we are going to be working diligently to keep up with demand. It may take us a while to truly get in the groove of owning a shop but I promise we are working hard behind the scenes to keep everything stocked as best as possible.

Keep checking back often for updates on new products and updated stock!

Sticker Junkies – Get Your Fix With This Awesome Crystal and Company Giveaway!

Hello my name is Jenn, and I am a sticker junkie. *All in unison: Hi Jenn!* 

No, seriously. In my opinion, there is no better way to pretty up your planner than with an awesome set of stickers. I’m terrible at using stamps, and my hand lettering is atrocious.

That being said, I heavily rely on the stickers to help me keep it cute and fun to look at! Package them all up in a matching kit, already cut to the perfect size, and my sticker loving heart starts to flutter!

As a busy work at home mom, I need quick and easy! I also need to make sure I like to actually look at my planner everyday otherwise I start to resent it, and then nothing gets done. That’s what I love so much about Crystal and Company!

Crystal and Company

Crystal & Company has become my one stop shop for planner stickers. With over 600 listings in her store, she seems to have a sticker for everything! Functional, decor, themed, boxes and lists – Crystal has it all!

Every Friday she releases new stickers at a 20% discount (which you can get daily sneak peeks of if you follow my planner-dedicated instagram account). She also has a $1 spot where you can choose from many different stickers and pay only $1 per sheet! You cannot beat her prices!

Not only does she have amazing stickers, but awesome accessories as well! Need a crystal gem pen or planner band? She’s got them! What about a tassel or paper clips? Yep, you guessed it, she’s got those too! Her store has everything you need to decorate every aspect of your planner.

My favorite thing to buy though is her monthly planner kit, also known as the MPK. Why? Because, you get all of the above planner sticker and accessories in a matching theme every month!

Between her regular planner kits and her add on kits you get well over 600 themed stickers, matching clips, planner bands, gem pens, washi tape, and even sweet treats! Nothing makes my mailbox happier than a Crystal and Company Monthly Planner Kit! Even my wallet is happy, since her kits are only $20 plus $3 flat rate shipping!

Crystal and Company Giveaway
