With only two days until October, I might be late in bringing these up, but HERE THEY ARE anyway! The first run of my Planner Strips (these cute pumpkin-orange colored ones) are now available to my e-mail newsletter subscribers! Not yet signed up? No problem! Subscribe below!



WHAT ARE PLANNER STRIPS? They are printable designs I created over a year ago to lay atop my Happy Planner® pages in order for the blank daily columns to become hourly + lined. (Visit this hashtag to see how I’ve used them in the past: #ARZ_PlannerStrips.)

THE SCOOP ON ‘EM: Basically, they’ve changed my functional planning for the better! I’m a person that needs the lines and hours for optimal organization. Once I print them out, trim them down, and prep the upcoming month with them — I add my stickers and embellishments right on top!

They come in the CLASSIC size or BIG, and I plan to release a new set each month, changing up the color for added fun and flair.

Below is a video walk-through all about my Planner Strips: what they are, the tools I use, and the process I follow each month to include them in my planner. NOTE: I start to bleed at 6:50 in the video, but I managed to salvage the finger. 😉

I am so thankful for your visit today, and for letting me share my off beat designs with you! These designs are a bunch I thought would be just as helpful to you girls in the planner community as they have been to me. // I would appreciate it – if you do decide to download, print, and use these designs – to give me a little shout out! A tag on IG to direct others to where they could find the materials would be awesome. …also, feedback or suggestions for other type of designs you’d like to see are welcomed. Woo! Have a great weekend! xoxo

    Is there a special size we should print these? When I printed the classic size, these they came out a little smaller than the entire box.

    Hey, girl — they should be ready to go once you download, but maybe your printer settings are scaling them down. Make sure the scale of the print page is set at 100%. I designed them to perfectly fit the two sizes of Happy Planners™. Hope that helps! XOXO!

    Thanks for the free printable! Would you consider making a lined page exactly like this without the hours?

    Hmmm…maybe! If enough people asked about this! 🙂 …but the numbers are so subtle, you could probably write right over them anyway, as if it were just lines.

    I’ve been added to the subscription list but when I click on the link for the planner stripsbit doesn’t download just says “can only be downloaded to one computer” but I haven’t seen where to print? Suggestions?

    Hey, Maria!

    Hey Amanda! I LOVE these and am so excited to start using them! But, every time I try and download anything, it makes me re-subscribe to the newsletter and then never ends up working…I think I’ve subscribed 4 different times now. Any way to problem solve this? Thanks girl!

    Hey, Nicole!

    Did I send you an email to address this? Did you ever get it to work? 🙂

    Are there planner strips available with just a white top in place of the orange or a really light gray?

    Hey, Sarah! The planner babes who have been getting light grey strips have been printing these out with the black & white setting of their printer on! So creative! Give it a try!

    I am subscribed and have been receiving your emails; however, I cannot print the strips. What am I missing?

    Hey, Steph! I replied with a trouble-shooting email! Let me know if what I suggested works! xoxo!

    You said that you plan on releasing one every month, so when will November be out, and will those subscribed get it to their inbox? Thank you!

    November’s bunch will be coming out this week, Scarlett! …and YES! If you’re already subscribed to my newsletter, you will get the VIP access to them! Keep a lookout in your inbox! Woo hoo!

    I’m having the same problem as above. I only get a message saying it can only be downloaded on one computer but I haven’t downloaded anything.

    October 23rd, 2017 at 1:02 pm

    You’ll only be able to download if you’re on a desktop computer or laptop hooked up to a printer. If you’re doing all of the viewing from your phone, you will get this message. 😉 I’m e-mailing you now to help troubleshoot this problem, Sabrina. xoxo!

    Hello, I am trying to download the strips but your link keeps making me subscribe which I have done. Can you assist me with this? And thank you for making these!

    Are you trying to download from your phone? That might be why. // You’ll need to open the link on a desktop computer or laptop. I’ll shoot you an email now! 🙂

    Thanks for the planner strips. Every time I download, save and print it just prints a blank page.
