My memory keeping with BIG Happy Planner | Monika Pestrová

Hello everyone! I'm so delighted to be here with you as a new Creative Team member! And as this is my first post here, let me write a few words about myself. I'm from the Czech republic and I live in Prague. I'm married and have a son who is nine years old. I've started my scrapbooking journey in 2013 and since then it's been my passion and a way how to calm my mind after a whole day at work. I'm a documenter - so mostly I work on Project Life, planners, layouts and Traveler's notebooks.

And today I'd like to share with you one of my last Big Planner Pages using the beautiful SO ROMANTIC collection. The most favorite product of mine are Traveler's Notebook papers, because they're just perfect for this big size planners.
In the past few years I used big Project Life albums to keep our daily memories. But after a while I realized, that I need something smaller, something easily portable. And that's why I've chosen Big Happy Planner for 2020. And I fell in love with it! It holds many photos and there's a plenty of space for journaling and embelishing.
I always prepare my photos first. I print them on my Epson printer (4 photos per 10 x 15 photo paper) and place them in the columns. Each column on the planner page is 5 cm wide. The only thing you need to do is cut the Traveler's Notebook papers in half and you have papers prepared to do the work for you. It's that easy. After that you just measure the lenght you need.
I always try to think about some creative ways how to fill in the spaces without photos.  But you have to keep in mind not to use thick embelishments. Otherwise your planner will get fater and fater and in a few months you will not be able to close it properly.
One of my favorite ways how to embelish the blank boxes is cutting fringe on a paper stripes. You can use your scraps to create them and either fill the whole box or just a part of it as I did. And although it looks like 3D effect, this type of embelishment is flat so your planner is save. But don't limit yourself with the boxes. In my future posts I'll show you how to use even bigger photos or papers.
Lastly I want to show you how I help myself with cutting the perfect paper/photo size (for example from a small paper leftovers). I cut a stencil out of solid plastic cover measured 5 x 7,8 cm. I use it to cut papers and photos just the right size I need. And you can also make a circle stencil to cut circles that fit into the planner boxes.
So that was my Big Happy Planner - week 17 2020. And I'm looking forward to sharing my other tips with you how to fill in your planner. Have a nice day!
