Using Happie Scrappie Inserts for Project Planning

Hi everyone, its Lucy again on the blog today. I hope everyone has had a great week so far!
Today I want to show you how to use the Happie Scrappie Inserts for Project Planning. I am sure all of us are surrounded by projects in our daily life whether it is at work or at home. I made it a goal in 2015 to be organised. However it is really challenging for me to keep things organised especially my work desk at home. Sounds horrible right?!
So, when I received the September Happie Scrappie planner kit, my gut feeling told me that the inserts are perfect for this project. This time, I requested un-punched inserts so that I could easily slot in all the inserts into The Happy Planner, as I frequently carry The Happy Planner everywhere I go.

My all-time weakness for organisation is the tendency to procrastinate when it comes to cleaning and tidying up all the stuffs. I seriously hope I am not the only one here. However, this time I am really determined to be organised no matter what. I have multiple reasons to do that. One of them is whenever i have a messy desk situation, I have this overwhelmed feeling which in turn resulted in lack of focus and distraction. I also read before that when you have a clean and tidy work space, it sorts of enhance the creativity of the brain. Well, more reasons to have an organised and pretty looking work desk, so that whenever I sit down and look at the pretty things around me, I will feel inspired and so motivated to start something great. 

Without further ado, let’s have a look at the inserts that we got from Monster theme planner kit. Soooo exciting!! 
I decided to use the insert with eight boxes in a sheet. This insert is perfect to cater for different information that you need to start on the project. I started by labelling each box with the header stickers to mark “PROJECT INFORMATION”, “PROJECT GOALS”, “THINGS TO SORT” and “MOTIVATION”.
I used the small dots stickers that I have left over from previous kit to list the project goals. In addition, I used the heart checklist banner to list the things that I need to sort. The stamping images on the motivation box served as an encouragement for me to kick start the project. I always believe the more colorful my insert is - the more motivated I will be to start and finish this project. :)
For the shopping list, I used the list insert to list down things that I need to purchase for this project. Again, I pasted the header sticker on top right hand corner of the insert to mark “SHOPPING LIST” and stamped the shopping cart image from Mommy Lhey Designs.
Do you know that Sam had sent out a newsletter with a link to download free printables for A5 and Personal Size to subscribers? Woohoo!! I definitely took advantage of the cute A5 free printable. This one is called the Brain Dump Insert. I used the brain dump insert to record my favorite websites or blogs to go for inspiration. 
Last but not least, I used the calendar notepad to track the progress of the project as it is really important to stay on the schedule. The reason I spread out this simple project throughout the month of November is because I am working in the day and normally I only have time during the weekend, so I won't have need to rush the project. Then, I clipped the piece of notepad to the planner using the magnetic bookmark that came inside the planner kit. 
For the finishing touch, all I needed to do was to punch the inserts and slot them into The Happy Planner. The main reason of incorporating these inserts into the happy planner is to ensure I will be able to record or to brain dump any information that I want to add wherever I go.
Okay that's about all.. Wish me luck for my desk decoration project. I am really excited to start on it. I am definitely going to make it happen this time. I will share photos with you guys once it's done!
I hope you have been inspired by this post on how to use your Happie Scrappie Inserts.

Till the next time.
