2016/2017 Classic Happy Planner - Picture Quote [Flip Through & First Impression]

Happy Monday, Planner Friends! I did the bad--I bought yet another planner, which you probably noticed in my "How I Use Multiple Planners" post I shared last Monday. I don't feel that bad, though, because this is the planner I originally wanted from the beginning and I may have had a 50% off coupon from Michaels... so I think it was worth it!

This is the Picture Quote Classic 2016/2017 Happy Planner. It can be purchased online on the Me and my BIG Ideas shop or at selected Michael's Craft Stores. The special thing about this style in comparison to all of the other Happy Planners for 2016/2017 is that all of the dividers are designed as photography with quotes. I guess you could say it is Tumblr-ish and whatnot, but I think it is absolutely beautiful and I am so happy to have already jumped in to use it!

This is what the first page looks like: the "This Planner Belongs To..." page. Pretty plain and basic in comparison to the other Happy Planners I've shown flip-throughs for, but I love the font for the "Let's Be Happy".

Again, the year-at-a-glance is kind of plain in comparison to the other Happy Planners I've shown in the past but I love the quote at the bottom: "She's a dreamer, a doer, a thinker. She sees possibility everywhere". How self-empowering is that?

The month at a glance is kind of different. The shading for the weekends now have a pattern, which is super adorable! I love how it is still really light where you'd easily still be able to write on top of it without an issue. I don't really decorate my monthly views, so I think the patterns on the weekends will really help spice up my Monthly "spreads" a little more.

As for the weekly spreads, I love, love LOVE the font used for the days of the week! I also noticed that there is no longer headers, just colored bars, which is nice. If I wanted to follow this color scheme for the month, I wouldn't need to make special headers.

The main reason I wanted this planner was because of how beautiful the dividers and the "this month" pages were! This is the only planner i've seen that has the "this month" section laid out the way it is. MAMBI  did amazing with the designing of this page and I think it is almost too beautiful to want to write on. The dividers and the quotes on them are absolutely stunning, as well. The photos really look like something you'd see on your Tumblr-feed, which I love because it is super modern and artsy. I can't help but fall in love with each and every one of them!

Which of these dividers are your favorite? I'd love to hear down below!

  1. Oh my gosh, that is GORGEOUS!! I love the font used for the weekdays too! So elegant<3 I think that March divider is my favorite but man, they're all so pretty!

    1. I think this one, out of all the the planners I've received from MAMBI, is my favorite! This one just screams wunderlust from the photos and quotes! That one is super cute! Succulents for days!<3

  2. When I started thinking about buying one of these, this was the one I really wanted, but for some reason it was the very one that didn't make it across to the UK. I'm happy with the one I have, but those quotes really are amazing and I loved the flowers on the front. Maybe next year! Thanks for sharing!

    1. Aw that's too bad. I know the difficulty--half the collection isn't sold here in Canada because we don't have a Hobby Lobby or an equivalent shop. Nevertheless, Im glad you're enjoying your Happy Planner!

    2. I had the same thing, Ruth - I was able to ship it to my location but they were charging a LOT of money; I figured I'd have a look for 2018 instead... but now they have completely cycled this style out of their range.

  3. I love this planner so much and am so mad I never got this. At the time it was still out, my friends saw me staring at it lovingly and said not to get it, they would get it for me as a Christmas present... they ended up giving me a completely different planner. I figured I would just use that one for 2017 and then check if Happy Planner would release a similar but new design like this one for 2018... except they didn't, none of their 2018 planners look anything even remotely like this one in terms of style. I'm SO mad at myself, I should have just gotten it anyway instead of presuming this was something they would keep making.

    1. Aw I'm sorry to hear :( Maybe you can find it on Blitsy for super cheap now that 2017 is coming to an end? You could always purchase date covers on Etsy with the extra money you are saving (since it will probably be really cheap with 2017 coming to an end). I know a lot of planner friends I have who do that with pages they haven't used throughout the year.
