This was such a fun video for me to create! If you’re like me, you buy way more planners every year than you can use or you buy one hoping it will bring you planner peace, only to discover that it’s just not “the one”. Well, I found a way to turn my old happy planner into a plotting notebook, and today I’m showing you how I did it!


Products I mentioned in this video:

Sipa Fine Liners

Sharpie Pens

Embroidery Scissors

Avery White Round Labels

HP Premium Choice Printer Paper

Happy Planner Big Punch *You can often find HP projects on sale at Michaels and with good coupons!*


Plotting Books I Recommend:

Super Structure by James Scott Bell

I'm not a superstar or a huge bestseller, but I have built an amazing career that brings me great joy. Here at Heart Breathings, I hope to help you find that same level of success. Let's do this.
