Well, this is fun! MAMBI is selling a Happy Planner kit at 16 select Costco’s. It’s hard to see because the photo they provided is so small but it looks like there’s an 18-month Happy Planner, 5 rolls of washi tape, 3 pens, some pocket page inserts, 2 little paper pad inserts, etc. MAMBI says,…

Scrapbook Product Review: Happy Planner by MAMBI

As you saw in my last post, I recently bought the MAMBI Happy Planner at Michaels (reg. $34.99 minus 30% off coupon = $24.49). It’s the 8.5 x 11 version, not the more popular smaller one that you’ve probably been seeing everywhere. Not only are the binder discs my favorite color but they also have…

Are you sitting down? Because what I have to tell you is going to drop you if you’re standing: I haven’t been to Michaels in over a month. Say whuuut?! I know. What is this world coming to? Better question: How are they staying in business without me? I finally made it over there because…

CHA 2016, Part 6: Notions

First of all, what is Notions? They’re “the world’s largest creative arts distributor.” Companies like Notions are kind of a “one stop shop” for scrapbook stores where they can order products from multiple companies at once – as opposed to placing a separate order with each manufacturer. For instance, a scrapbook store could get the…

CHA 2016, Part 5: Simple Stories

This is one of my favorite scrapbooking companies so I was looking forward to visiting their booth. I have the Carpe Diem planner (#TeamAqua) and some of the embellishments so I already knew I liked it. But seeing it in person was great. I was also excited to see Simple Stories’ new travel line, the…
