How does the Planner Squad Swap work?

Basically, you fill out the form at the bottom of this page to send an email to our Swap leader (the infamous Sarita!) and she will pair you with your swap buddy. Then you and your swap buddy will each shop for and/or create planner related goodies to be packaged up and shipped to your partner! Swap partners are paired together – so whoever you are sending to, will be sending something to you in return.

Who can participate in the swaps?

Our swaps are only open to our awesome Squadettes (US ONLY!!). Want to be a Squadette too? Come join us in our awesome facebook group! [Yes – we will check if you are a member or not! If you’re not, then your email will go to the virtual trash can and you will not be allowed to participate. So make sure you join our fb group!]

What is the monthly limit we should spend on our swap partner?

Your swap package should be valued at $15. That may or may not including shipping, that is up to you. You are more than welcome to spend more on your swap partner if you would like, however that does not guarantee you will get the same amount in return. Do NOT send a package worth less than $15! (again, that can include shipping if you would like).

When is the deadline to sign up?

The signup deadline for the October 2016 swap is September 30th.

Okay, I signed up! When will I be assigned a swap partner?

Emails are generally sent out with your swap partners information around the 1st of every month. Check the facebook group for updates from Sarita, because she will share a list of who she has signed up for the swap. If you did not get an email, check your spam folder. If you still can’t find your email, contact Sarita to let her know.

Make sure to add plannersquadswap@gmail.com to your contacts and/or create a filter so your email will go to your inbox!

Is there a shipping deadline?

Yes. All swap packages MUST be shipped (with a tracking number sent to your partner) by the end of the day on October 15th. That gives everyone about two weeks to shop for their partner and put together a package, which is plenty of time. If for some reason you cannot get to the post office in time to ship your partners package, you MUST let Sarita and your swap partner know. Once you ship your package, please send your buddy the tracking number so they can look out for it!

Other things you should know as a swap participant

If you flake out on your partner and do not send a swap gift – you will be forever banned from the Planner Squad facebook group and no longer be allowed to participate in future swaps. Also, since partners are paired in groups of two – your swapper will know who their flaky swap partner was, which could ultimately end up in a bad reputation for yourself.

If you sign up – follow through. Zero tolerance for flaky swappers!

Also, do not wait to receive a package before sending yours. That’s not how it works! If everyone waited to receive a package before sending one in return – no one would ever get any packages! If you sign up – follow through!

If you still are unsure of what’s expected of you, watch this video in the group.


**Disclaimer: Planner Squad and Facebook is not responsible for any wrong doings that may happen during a swap. When you sign up – keep in mind that you are taking a risk. We have no way to force anyone to send packages. That means, if someone doesn’t follow through on their end of the deal – you may not end up with a package that month. While that really stinks and we try to avoid that as much as possible, we’re ultimately not responsible if you do not get a gift in return. By signing up you are telling us that you understand there is a possibility that you may not receive anything in return. If you do not receive a package by the end of the month – contact Sarita immediately to report it. We will not be chasing down your swap partner for you – that is your responsibility. 


Sorry, this swap is now closed. Be on the lookout for the November swap sign ups coming soon!

Happy Swapping!

Floral Washi Lovers Rejoice: Floral Themed Washi Kit Pre-Order is Here!

Raise your hand if you’re obsessed with floral washi! I am! No, really. I can’t get enough. Do I say this about every kit we do? Probably so.. anyways, I digress

floral washi kit preorder

This week, I put together this awesome set of floral washi, because you just can’t go wrong with floral prints! They also have a very vintage feel, and with the different colors it would go with so many different spread options!

Trying to pick my favorite 6 from the many options we had was so hard. Somehow, I was able to narrow it down to the following six styles:

  • Vintage Floral
  • Vintage Floral in Green
  • Pink and Yellow Floral Mix
  • Red and Blue Floral Mix
  • Vintage Floral in Blue
  • Red Roses

Aren’t they gorgeous?! I seriously cannot wait to get these and start playing!

 

Floral Washi Tape Kit Pre-Order

How do our washi kit pre-orders work you ask? Well, each week either Amy (the Lucy to my Ethel) choose a fun theme that will have 6 rolls of washi tape. Squadettes (that’s you!) will be able to pre-order these kits and pay a low price of only $15.00 (in the US. International will pay $20)! This averages about $2 per roll of washi that you can’t find just anywhere, and that’s at least 50 cents less than our normal prices!

Unique washi like these at this low of a price? What a steal! 

How to Order

We require all orders to be submitted no later than 11:59pm (EST) on Thursday, September 29, 2016.  Yes, that means if you want it, you better order it now before it’s too late! Once payments have been received, there will be no refunds.

Sometimes supplies run out before we get the order placed. This is rare of course, but if for some reason this does happen, we will order a similar style washi tape to put in its place.

We ask you to please allow 4-6 weeks shipping and handling time. This is only because our awesome supplier is located on the other side of the world, so sometimes it can take anywhere from 3 to 4 weeks for us to receive it ourselves.

As soon as we receive the order, we will package it up all nice and pretty, and send it on its way to you!

Now, what are you waiting for?! Go get this kit right now while you still can! While you’re at it, make sure you check out all of the other goodies we have in the Planner Squad Shoppe. (This floral washi would go great with one of our squadette gem pens! Wouldn’t you agree?)

Click here to pre-order your Floral Washi Tape Kit!

For order updates, make sure you are a member of our Facebook group. We will post all washi pre-order updates there in the group!

Where to Shop – FREE Printable Dashboard with Exclusive Coupon Codes for 8 Awesome Planner Shops

Raise your hand if you love planner shopping and happy mail! *Waves hand frantically in the air* There’s nothing better than sitting down at the end of a long day and losing yourself in Etsy searching for those planner stickers that you probably don’t desperately need for the next Holiday’s themed spread, or to track your daily water intake.

I don’t know about you, but I really hate to buy anything online that’s not on sale or doesn’t have some sort of coupon code that will score me an awesome deal. When you think about how much money is dumped into your planner just on stickers and washi alone, it could probably cause you to start hyperventilating a little.

But you guys – there are so many amazing shops out there! I can’t help it! Even if I don’t need it, sometimes I just have to have it! I also strongly believe in helping out small business with getting their name out there more. As an etsy shop owner myself I know how hard it can be to find an affordable way to advertise my own shop, so that is why I decided to put together this awesome printable for our subscribers!
