Washi Tape Addicts Rejoice – Pre-Order Kits are BACK!

Are you a lover of all things washi tape? Do you like to collect rare and unique rolls of washi that you can’t find in your everyday craft stores? Then the Planner Squad Shoppe has just what you need!

Trying to figure out how to create Silhouette cut files for all those great free planner printables floating around? This post may help. Find more planner tutorials at www.plannersquad.com

I’m happy to announce that we have officially brought back our washi tape kit pre-orders! That’s right, once again you can pre-order a themed set of five washi tape kits for an extremely low price!

Washi Kit Pre-Order Details

How do our washi kit pre-orders work you ask? Every two weeks or so, we choose 5 rolls of washi that you can buy in a kit, centered around a fun theme. Squadettes (that’s you!) will be able to pre-order these kits and pay a low price of only $7.50 (plus shipping)! This averages to about $1.50 per roll of washi that you can’t find just anywhere, saving you about $1.00 per roll compared to our normal prices!

Only want a couple of the rolls? That’s okay! You can also order pre-order the rolls individually for about $2.00 each. While this isn’t the best deal, it is still a little bit cheaper than or normal prices.

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

While sometimes we have extra rolls of washi to list for sale when we receive these kits, it’s not always a guarantee. The only way to guarantee you will receive this washi at the discounted price is to pre-order your kit today!

Current Washi Pre-order Theme: Vintage

This week we’re taking you back in time to give you blast from the past. That’s right, this week’s washi kit pre-order is a vintage theme! In this kit you will receive one roll each of the following styles:

  • Vintage Butterflies
  • Vintage Eiffel Tower
  • Vintage Technology
  • Vintage Landmarks
  • Vintage Advertisements

Vintage Washi Tape

Tune in for the Squadette Show on Friday at 9 pm EST in our Facebook group and I will show you these beauties “in person” 🙂 Trust me when I say that pictures never do our washi tape justice!

How to Order

To order your washi pre-order kit, click on the link at the bottom of the post to take you to the listing in the Planner Squad Shoppe. This listing with the discounted washi price will only be available for 2 weeks, ending February 28, 2017, and then will be taken down. Please note, all orders are final and non-refundable.

Sometimes our distributor runs out of supplies before we get a chance to order these kits ourselves. 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 once the preorder ends. 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.

Click here to pre-order your vintage washi kit today!

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

Join our planner fun on Facebook Live in Planner Squad Facebook group. Great place to share planner hauls, goodies, & more!

Hey Squadettes!  Are you looking for a fun way to find out the latest and greatest in the planning world?  Want a way to connect with other planner lovers?  Interested in finding a nightly show that is dedicated to one of your favorite things in the whole world-planners?

Well, Planner Squad has come to the rescue!

Planner Squad proudly presents….(drum roll, please!) the Squadette Show!

We have now updated the Squadette Show to best meet the needs of our favorite people-Squadettes!  Read on to learn about how these new changes will be fun for all.

What Is the Squadette Show?

The Squadette Show was dreamed up by Jenn and Amy to bring our most favorite planner gals together via live streaming broadcast.  We love chatting with our Squadettes every day in our Planner Squad Facebook group.

Both Jenn and I love to watch and do live social broadcasts.  Such a fun way to connect with other planner girls!  You can often find us sharing great planner hauls, deals, and more.

We love to get to know other planner gals-newbies, wannabes, and addicts (like us).  Since we can’t all live near each other for planner meet-ups (boo!), Facebook Live is a fantastic opportunity to share, connect, and update about the planner goodies in our lives.

Squadette Show Is For You & Me!

Planner Squad wants the Squadette Show to be a place where planner girls can come together and chat about planners.  Here is a breakdown on the Squadette Show:

  • Jenn or Amy will host Friday night Squadette Shows (around 8 pm CT) to give Planner Squad and show updates, as well as to highlight featured planner shops and deals
  • All Squadette Show Facebook Lives are done in the group.  We do not permit you to share a Facebook Live that you recorded on your own page or group.
  • Squadettes are invited to host the Squadette Show other days & times!
  • Topics may include:   Share your planners.  Show us your planner hauls.  Let’s see your spreads.  Show us great deals on your planner site.

It is basically going to be a planner party all week long!  We are so pumped up to start this new adventure for Planner Squad!

If you are interested in hosting a Squadette Show, we ask that you contact Jodie to confirm your show topic.  We want to have an idea of what Squadettes are sharing-plus, help promote your show:)

If you are not comfortable in front of the camera, you can still do Facebook Live!!  You can keep the camera flipped around on the planner goodies you want to share.

The Squadette Show is such a fabulous way to get to know each other, give encouragement, and share planner love.  If you have any questions about how to do a Facebook Live, please email us at plannersquad@gmail.com and we will be happy to help.

How to Add Multiple Inserts to Your Travelers Notebook

Travelers notebooks are one of my very favorite things in this whole entire world. Probably because I know I can customize it to fit my exact needs. If I have something I need to plan, I can just make a new insert for it!

As of now, I have a total of 8 inserts and there is more that I know I need to add in the future. I even use it as my wallet! (I’ll share more about that later.)

Wait, what? Is it possible to fit more than two inserts inside a traveler’s notebook? Yes! it is!

How to Add Multiple Inserts to Your Travelers Notebook

I know there are many seasoned planner girls out there who already know this, but I know there are a lot of new planner people out there who are just getting to know their traveler’s notebook.

Sometimes in my Etsy shop, I sell my own version of the traveler’s notebook (also known as the “FunkyDori”). Often times with my custom orders I would get asked how to add more than one notebook to a single elastic band.

Today, I’m going to show you how!

If you are not familiar with what a travelers notebook is, I recommend you check out this post.

How to Add Inserts to Your Travelers Notebook

Most standard travelers notebooks come with two elastic bands on the inside. What many don’t understand is how to hold 3 (or even 5) inserts on each bandThe trick is in an extra elastic band!

Step 1. First, you will need your travelers notebook (with one of the attached elastic bands free), three separate inserts, and an additional elastic band. You could use a standard rubber band, or buy some elastic from your local craft store (I bought mine at Walmart even).

Step 2. Decide which of the three inserts you would like to be in the middle. Open that insert to the middle, and wrap the elastic band (the one attached to your traveler’s notebook) around the inside of the insert.

Step 3. Open your second insert to the middle, and wrap the unattached elastic band (or rubber band) around it. When the insert is closed, the elastic band will wrap around the middle of the insert and its outer spine.

Step 4: Open the third insert and again you will wrap the elastic band around the middle, but this time you will use the elastic band that is already attached to the 2nd insert. When you are finished, both inserts will lay side by side when closed, spine to spine, but will be joined together by the elastic band.

Step 5. Wrap the band with the two joining inserts around the main insert already attached to the traveler’s notebook. The main insert will slide right in between the other two booklets.

You should now have three inserts attached to one elastic band within your traveler’s notebook!

For those of you like me who need to see it so you can understand it, I created a video tutorial for you to watch below.


Are you a travelers notebook junkie like me? I want to see how you use it! Share a photo with us by tagging @plannersquad on Instagram (and don’t forget to use #plannersquad!). I can’t wait to see them!

Planner Squad Swap – Sign up for the October Swap!

Do you like to get planner related goodies in your mail box? If so, the Planner Squad Swap is for you! Each month our Squadettes like to participate in a monthly swap that brings the happiness of planner related goodies straight to your mailbox! Want to know how you can participate in the 2016 October swap? Keep reading for more information!

october-swap-pinterest-copy

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!
