This is going to be SO good! SO, if you haven’t noticed, Memory Planning is a “thing”! well, ok – so I call it “Memory Planning” because recording, planning and documenting in a planner is actually a very powerful and FUN way to keep memories! It’s actually kinda like memory multi-tasking because you are doing what you would do anyway: write down the stuff you have going on… (planning) along with stuff you need to do and remember… but also adding in some pretty embellishments and photos! It’s the perfect way to CAPTURE your EVERYDAY!
I love it! To kick off 2015 with these beautiful planners, and to share my LOVE for ‘Memory Planning’, I have teamed up with Big Picture Classes to create a 30-day class in January called “Capture 30”. Every day, starting on January 1, I will be sharing ideas and inspiration to use in your planner for just about 15 minutes a day! It’s something that can just slide into your life, won’t add TONS of work, but will help you FOCUS on getting where you really want to go, doing what you really want to do in the year to come! We will talk so many different topics like improving handwriting, creating effective lists, documenting daily details in creative and FUN ways, but MOSTLY making the MOST out of everyday! Choosing to be in control and creating a life you love! You can read more about the class here.. it’s only $49! That price is for the CLASS ONLY – there will be videos, a live webshow and chat, tutorials, worksheets and fun projects! It’s kinda a big deal! And it will be here before we know it!
SO earlier this year, Studio Calico bought Big Picture Classes, and of course SC is all about creating amazing KITS to make it SO easy to create! To support this class, Studio Calico is offering both of my beautiful Memory Planner albums as well as some of the gorgeous accessories in the perfect ‘starter kit’. The preorder is available NOW on the Studio Calico website. Here is the link to see what exactly is in those kits. These kits do not contain the WHOLE ‘Memory Planner’ collection, but it’s my favorite pieces that I will be using in the class.
I have heard the question a number of times: “Do we need to have this kit for this class, or can I buy or use another planner?” As this class is available without a kit, and like most BPC classes, the ideas I am sharing are universal and you can adapt my ideas to any planner!
Another IMPORTANT NOTE… and this is just slightly less than ideal… (but we are making the best of it) My whole collection of 2015 Memory Planner STUFF will not be shipping until the last week of December. And YES it’s cutting it VERY close for the starting of the new year! BLAH! I have structured the class such that we will be spending the first week and a half on stuff that won’t need to happen directly INSIDE the planner until we have it in our hands! I SO TOTALLY wish it was shipping right NOW, but it’s something that you will have ALL YEAR, so I think that the one week delay on the front end won’t be the worst thing! Studio Calico will be RUSHING the kits to you as FAST as possible! ALRIGHT… now I just want to clarify the 3 different options that are available in Heidi Swapp Memory Planners for 2015 – this way you can choose the perfect fit for you!
I created this little video just to share some of my favorite bits and pieces of the “Hello Beautiful” Memory Planner Collection. The planner this year is so different from last year
the albums are BINDERS, making it very easy to add in pages as needed and move current months to the front
in addition to the calendar pages, there are pages that highlight each day, as well as beautiful dividers for each month and places to write to-do lists, things to remember and record, and photos of the month!
Extra journaling pages are also included
**there are a LOT of pages that ALREADY COME loaded in the planner for the whole year! Similar to last year, each month has a pocket page which will hold 4×4 and 2×2 stuff.
There are 2 very different looking planners in this collection. First is the Black and White binder. The color palette is pink, black and white with GOLD foil touches. Second is the watercolor version which features soft watercolor effects and is highlighted by Silver Foil touches. This planner is really dedicated to following your DREAMS! Which is something that I LOVE, and I believe is such an important part of everyday! The embellishments and extras have been designed carefully to compliment each of the planners! Each accessory is useful, unique and makes me SUPER HAPPY! I couldn’t be more excited!
The last option that I wanted to mention is ONLY available at Michaels.
It’s a boxed kit version of the Memory Planner. There are a few differences.
The $24.99 retail includes a 6×8 3-ring GOLD binder book (this correspondes with the 6×8 Project Life binder if you are a PLer). The inside pages are a bit more abbreviated than the full Memory Planner book: 12 divider pages, 12 month-at-a glance, 1 journal page and pocket page per month. The kit comes with some number stamps, some 2×2 cards, sticker booklet, the cutest magnetic clips, sticky note flags and a pen.
It’s an incredible deal! I got them for my girls and they are just PERFECT! We are excited to share our journey together!! Also, as a side note, my 2014 spiral bound “Hello Today” albums can be found at Hobby Lobby – and is SO MUCH FUN! If that I more your style! I HOPE that I have answered questions that you might have… whatever planner you choose to use, documenting your life DAILY in a planner is a game-changer. By writing one little thing every day, about your day – you can unlock and access memories that will literally stop that ‘blur’ that we can sometimes feel as we think back on our days… PLEASE JOIN ME! This is just the beginning of a very exciting and DO-ABLE way to document everyday! Invite your friends and family to join in too! It’s so fun to be on this journey together!
