The ‘This Month Currently’ page of my Happy Planner is one of my favorite to decorate. I use it to track birthdays, any important events I have for the month, plus it’s just fun to decorate. I typically add to it at the end my favorite songs of it I went to the movies, I’ll add the ticket. For July I kept it simple, yet went all out with the red white and blue. As always be sure to click the highlighted links throughout the post. Let’s start planning!
For those that are new to my plan with me series or are unfamiliar with the Happy Planner, before each month there is a ‘This Month Currently page’ which is in different formats depending on the planner you have. I’m still working in my ‘Good Things are Going to Happen’ Happy Planner which is from the original release back in May of 2015. My ‘This Month Currently’ page features a 3 month perpetual calendar at the top, the ‘this month currently’ section, birthdays, ‘I am grateful for,’ and important dates. I wasn’t using this page so I started decorating it just to make it more functional for me.
This time around I decided to use the 4th of July sticky notes and list pad that I’ve been hoarding from Target and try to incorporate them as much as I could into this page. I really never use them so I thought it’d be fun to try since I basically cover everything on the page anyway. A little bit of glue later and it worked.
To cover the calendar I took the camo fashion duct tape from Dollar Tree and used it all around the page. I then went in with the striped washi to add a little more color and added an ‘America the Beautiful’ banner from a Target sticker sheet.
I took the list pad that I had used for the sidebar of my July Monthly and week of June 27th-July 3rd, and used it to completely cover the ‘This Month Currently’ section. I then covered the “remember” which has holidays with star washi tape. For the other three sections I just cut and sided two designs of sticky notes. I added a few decorative stickers here and there and that was that.
