Yet again, I found that I really did not like this week’s spread.
Part of the problem this time was that I had to do it twice. I was so accustomed to working in my MAMBI extension pack while I waited for the real Happy Planner to begin in July that I wasn’t paying attention and just carried on.
When I realised that Week 26 was the first week in my Botanical Gardens, I of course had to redo it all. I mean, what’s the point of waiting with bated breath all these months for my new planner to begin if I wasn’t going to jump in to it the minute I possibly could?
And so I up and moved as much as I could out of the extension pack and into the first week of the “real” Happy Planner.
Unfortunately, I’ve learned from experience that you can’t really re-position stickers and tapes without damaging them and the pages you leave behind. With that in mind, I just redid the whole spread and only moved the stickers that were laid on top of tape rather than on the pages themselves.
Sadly, something got lost in translation. I decided to use the new Heidi Swapp glitter tapes in place of the gold foil, since I was redoing everything already and I don’t like to be a one-trick pony, but they just don’t look as yummy. (I kind of hate them, honestly. The glitter tapes fray at the edges like fabric. It’s awful.)
I have to say, I was very glad to move on to Week 27 (and boy have I got an awesome layout to show you guys next week!)
