My 1st Planner Meetup at The Habbit

My 1st Planner Meetup at The Habbit

Creative Planning is an addicting hobby. At this stage, it is for me. Although, I am seeing more of it as positive because I became more organized and I follow my schedule strictly now. I guess, it’s how you manage the hobby, yes?

Just recently, I attended my very first Planner Meet up. It was last Sunday, June 5th held at The Habbit, Congressional Quezon City for Planner Girls from the North. As I already know that there are a lot of people who are into this creative hobby, I decided to join when I saw an invite on the Journal & Planner Enthusiast Facebook Group. I wanted to get inspirations from other planner girls and pundits. Luckily, I got a slot. <confetti please!>

My 1st Planner Meetup at The Habbit

The Habbit is a cafe/restaurant where you can play board games, card games and eat at the same time. It’s owned by one of the organizers of the meet up. I was welcomed with a crowd of boys and girls who are playing cards. I also sawtwo cabinets. One is full of toys, action figures and board game displays and one is full of washi tapes, clips, stickers and stamps. My eyes sparkled seeing the craft supplies.


I was literally “nalula” with all the girls stash/planner supplies. I didn’t brought a lot since it’s bulky and heavy. Hahaha. Anyhow, we began with getting to know. We stated our names, when did we start doing the hobby and what planner are we using. It’s so nice to know people who are busy in their respective field and found planning a big help with their daily lives. <wink>

After the getting to know, we started the planning session! Summer of Planners and Journals brought a lot from her stash and allowed us to use them. She got a lot of clear stamps, punchers, Project Life cards, washi tapes and others. Everyone started designing already. While crafting, we were served with our orders like french fries, sandwiches, lemon iced tea and fried chicken. How can you not enjoy?

lots of clear stamps!

I started decorating my week spread on my Kikki.K Cute Planner. I printed ombre watercolor boxes in matte sticker paper so I can write over them. I put the boxes because the quality of paper is thin causing pen to bleed on the other side of the page.


Here’s our planner stack! So lovely to see these beauties!

It was announced that they will organize monthly meet ups. This is so other planner girls can attend also on the next hang outs. We were all giddy to know about since we will be able to know and meet other girls. I wish I can make it most of the time. πŸ™‚

gifts from planner girls!

And here’s my finished and decorated planner week spread. I enjoyed stamping using clear stamps. Hihihi.


The day ended us having lots of gifts from other planner girls and with beautifully decorated planner week spreads. β™₯

    Gasp! This is so fun! And the planner you made is just adorable! Is this a planner workshop, or just a meetup between planner/art enthusiasts. Is there a fee? I’m super interested! Would love to join the next one! πŸ™‚

    This is so nice. At first I thought it was … yet another way for someone to make money… pero the more I thought about it, the more I think now that there is value because doing creative planning with other people is socializing. I am sure you had a great time and gaining new friends as well.


  3. Berlin says:

    I would love to try making my planner as well. Congressional is somehow near our place. Excited with the boardgames but got more excited with the crafting.


  4. Ma.Me.Mi.Mommy says:

    It’s so amusing that this now a trend. I’ve never given much thought to decorating planners. Haha, kasi I don’t even write on it dutifully. Only when needed. I’d love to see more of your layout samples!

    This looks like so much fun. I used to be a planner addict. Everything I do is online now though. Even my planner. Would love to get creative again!

    I thought you painted the watercolor boxes but I misread and you printed it. It looks like it was handwritten! Alongside calligraphy, creative planning is also a budding thing to do. I am amused by the stickers and the patience you dedicate in crafting a theme for every spread. πŸ™‚


    1. aika loraine says:

      Hihi. I am thinking of doing that too (watercolor painting). ❀️ hahaha. Omg calligraphy is much tricky. I always see your posts. It’s kinda hard when i am trying to do it.

    That is cool to find a group of ladies who share the same passion as you. You got to share ideas with each other on new suppliers and where to get them. And you also got to use each others craft materials like the clear stamp you’ve mentioned. I’m curious how that clear stamp looks like. Anyway, all your planners stacked together look gorgeous. I’m happy that you got a group of friends who may turn out to be your life long friends too.

    You’re really into creative planning bec. this is the third post I read about to the topic. And to say that your planner is beautiful is an understatement. Add to that, I can see that the hobby enhances not only the creative aspect, but also on discipline. Im interested to know if there are guys who are into this hobby.
