Planner Squad Weekly Challenge + Link-Up #1

Planner Squad Weekly Challenge Link-Up

Planner Squad is so excited to announce our new weekly event!  We have been busting at the seams to share the fun we have slated for our Squadettes.

ANNOUNCING…Weekly Challenges with all sorts of planner goodies, themes, and idea sharing.  Oh, and that’s not all!  All Squadettes who participate in our weekly challenges will be eligible to win planner prizes.

Go ahead and do that happy dance, baby!  Planner fun is ’bout to go down!

Jenn and I love to dream up new ideas and activities for our beloved Planner Squad.  We truly want this site to be about YOU-and your love of planners.  It is our passion to unite the planner community-with support, encouragement, and gorgeous washi.

We know how you love to play in your planners and share your fabulous creativity with all.  We gush to each other over your amazing spreads, stickers, and stamps.  We delight in your dashboards and designs.

And, like you, we love to win planner yummies.

Our goal for this Planner Squad Weekly Challenge is simple-provide a place for you to find inspiration and motivation.  To find new ideas and share your own.  To have a spot where others get your passion for planning-and where your hard work can be appreciated.

We also know that we all have different backgrounds and abilities. As much as I may want to highlight hand lettering in my spreads, it is just not going to happen for me at this time.  Our challenges will be open to all ages, levels, abilities, and skill.  Whether you are a glam or functional planner, you will have find Planner Squad Weekly Challenges to be doable and enjoyable.

Planner Squad Weekly Challenges-How It Is Going To Work

Either Jenn or I (Amy) will scope (that’s a live social broadcast on Periscope in case you haven’t joined the fun yet!) on Friday afternoons with our new challenge.  During these scopes, we will discuss the new challenge, as well as showcase entries from the previous week.  These scopes will be must-see because we will also announce the previous week’s winner.

After the scope, we will make our Weekly Challenge + Link-Up post go live.  At that point, you will have the opportunity to upload your image(s) to Instagram, tag @plannersquad, and add to that week’s link-up.

Let’s make this a bit easier-here’s a list:

  1. Watch scope @plannersquad on Periscope Friday afternoon. (optional but you’ll get to see one of our lovely faces and get more details!)
  2. Learn about Planner Squad Weekly Challenge during scope and/or on site.
  3. Create your spreads, clips, stickers, dashboards-whatever you want that relates to planners and our challenge.
  4. Take pictures of your creations and upload to Instagram.
  5. Tag @plannersquad and use #plannersquadchallenge.
  6. Add your Instagram link to our link-up.
    1. How to Share Your Instagram link:
      1. Post a picture of your challenge to your Instagram account. (Don’t forget to use #plannersquad and #plannersquadchallenge!)
      2. Click on the timestamp of your Instagram post
      3. Copy the URL address in the address bar
      4. Paste the URL you copied into the inlinkz “Link” section  (If you have more questions just comment below and we can help!)

Planner Squad Hop Recap: Show us Your Happy Mail!

 

Hey Squadettes!  Thank you all so much for another great Planner Squad Hop on Periscope this week! To those of you who are just joining us, every week we put together what we call a “Planner Squad Hop”, where a few members of our group scope about whatever the topic for that week may be.

What is Periscope? Basically, Periscope is a fabulous social media app with live broadcasts.

Follow us to catch all our #plannersquad scopes!

Planner Squad Hop Happy Mail

What is a Periscope Hop?

First, we start off with a host who organizes the hop.  The host will introduce the theme of the hop and give a shout out to plannersquad.com. When the host is finished, we all hop right over to the next scoper who signed up, then the next, and so on.

Want to see what hops we’ve done in the past? Every week after the hop we gather together these awesome replays so anyone who missed out can watch whenever it’s convenient for them. Last week we talked about our favorite planner.


 

Want to Join the Hop?

Interested scopers may sign up under the related graphic on Planner Squad Facebook group.  Each scoper will share for about 10 minutes about the topic of the week.  It’s a fun way to get a closer look at how other people plan and have fun chatting about our favorite topic-planners!

Not able to watch live-or just want to relive all the fun?  No worries!


Watch Planner Squad Replays here:

This week we talked about the Happy Mail we’ve recently received. Happy Mail is when you get fun planner related stuff in the mail – either gifts from friends, planner swaps, or things you’ve ordered.

(If no katch.me replay is available, that scoper does not have a katch.me account.  Please follow on Periscope to watch their live broadcasts!)
