48 The 2016 iHeart Planner is HERE! Let's Celebrate with a GIVEAWAY!

Today is a really exciting day for me and also one that I have personally been looking forward to all year long.  First, I want to thank you all again for your continued patience while I take a little time to focus on other areas of my business behind the blog scenes.  Not only am I officially a .COM!! now, I also finally finished designing, photographing and listing my 2016 Planner Printables in my Etsy shop!


I still have a slew of blog housekeeping to take care of (updating the old project gallery, setting up a dedicated e-commerce site, upgrading my ad networks...), but today I am all about focusing on my accomplishments and celebrating these beautiful new planner pages!

You can find every last detail over on my 2016 Planner FAQ page here, but some highlights include fresh colors and new graphics...


As well as a entirely new A5 page size option!


That means planner pages are now available in:

All three sizes make my heart happy and offer many of the same great features as previous planner editions, along with a few new added bonuses.




Just as I did last year, to celebrate the release of the planner I have asked my favorite companies to put together a little THANK YOU giveaway for my super fabulous readers.  And once again, they really came through for you guys!

One of the reasons I love creating and using printables for organizing, is the flexibility they offer to print as needed on demand.  I love having the option to print a new grocery list each week or a new page for my planner should something spill on it or if I have a bad handwriting day.  But what I really crush on is the versatility and ability to mix the printables with different binders and organizers until I find something that completely suites my daily needs.






Poppin has been my first stop for office supplies since I met them a few years back.  I have purchased their pens, highlighters, rulers, spiral notebooks {big and small} and many more accessories to make my desk a happy place to work.  They offer items in a rainbow of colors and they are always coming out with new products that make my organizing heart leap for joy.  Although I especially enjoy their ballpoint pens with my planner pages, you will also find their stapler on my desk next to a pencil pouch filled with my favorite planner supplies.  Oh!  And their small sticky notepads are always tucked inside the front pocket of my planner.


To celebrate the release of the 2016 iHeart Organizing Planner Printables, they are giving away a $100 Gift Certificate to Poppin.com!




Girl of all Work is no stranger around here.  I discovered them I was assembling my second edition planner a few years ago and I have never looked back.  I especially adore the calendar stickers, which allow me to mark down special dates and occasions in the cutest of ways.  And the monthly re-usable sticky tabs are the perfect solution for dividing up the monthly sections of the planner pages.  In fact, I just moved my tabs from last year's planner to this year's version without having to purchase anything new!

I find myself heading to Staples more than I like to admit.  #officesupplyobsessed  I go there for Poppin products.  I go there for ARC products.  I go there for printer ink and for having my printables spiral bound.  I go there a lot.  And their discbound systems really has been life changing in how I organize many areas of my personal and business life.  I continue to use the ARC system primarily for budgeting and blog planning purposes.

Although I don't put acrylic organizers directly inside of my planner, I do use them all over our house to stay organized each day.  I especially love to pair acrylic pieces with my planner and coordinating office supplies.  I have long believed that drawers are prettier with decorative paper showing through an acrylic divider, and that everyday work tools are a bit more exciting when placed inside beautiful desktop organizers.  #foreverfavorite


To celebrate the release of the 2016 iHeart Organizing Planner Printables, US Acrylic is giving away a $50 Gift Certificate to Amazom.com!   





OK guys, now that you know what I love and why, it is time for me to show my gratitude and give back to YOU!  Along with my great giveaway sponsors, I am also personally tossing in 15 Planner Printable PDF files which will be provided digitally with a personalized coversheet of the winner's choice!



a Rafflecopter giveaway



To celebrate this big IHeart milestone, I am offering 20% off of everything in my shop through Friday, November 20th.  Just be sure to use code 2016IHEARTPLANNER at checkout (not valid on previous purchases).  Also, if you have already purchased this year's planner pages and your name is selected as one of the giveaway winners, your planner purchase will be refunded once the drawing is complete and the winners have all been notified and confirmed.


From the bottom of my overflowing heart, thank you once again all for your continued love and support!  Each time I receive an order, an email with a testimonial or planner story, a thumbs up Etsy review, or you tag me on Instagram showing me how you are using your printables, I am filled with so much encouragement and warmth.  In fact, very few things bring me more joy than seeing IHeart printables being used and scribbled on.  It's is so rewarding to know you all are finding joy in organizing for your families, homes and lives.

  9. Thank you so much for doing an A5 version. As an Australian, it's hard to get letter-sized paper.

  14. Where do you recommend I print and bind?

    1. Hello,

      I always recommend supporting locally owned print companies and public libraries (and you may be surprised at their competitive pricing). I have also ordered a few planners directly from Best Value Copy and have found their prices to be some of the best available for color printing. You can find those specific details and more on my FAQ page here:

  17. Wow! I've been anxiously waiting for this day! None of my friends understand my enthusiasm, well okay maybe it's obsession with my planner.The colors make me happy and your suggested paper is very fountain pen friendly in my experience! Ooh and you're .com now??? Congrats! That's awesome! Such great goodies in your fabulous giveaway! I'm drooling over here!

    By the way, I thought I posted a reply on your Blogiversary post, any thoughts?

    1. I meant to say that I thought I posted a longish reply and it's not there. (just thought I'd clarify otherwise it doesn't make sense)

    2. Thank you for clarifying Beka! Your comment is there, but not everything shows up right away unless you scroll to the bottom and hit the "Load More Comments" link until all of the comments appear. :)

    3. Oh yes thank you...now I see...I always thought refreshing the page would do it. Thanks for explaining!

  18. You've truly outdone yourself! I see that you've included the meal planning version and I LOVE the tasks pages!, such a valuable tool!
    Now I get to see which version I like better! Thanks so much!

    ReplyDelete
  19. Thanks for the giveaway and for the colourful planners. They are adorable! Would they be available with the week starting on Monday? I know in the US is common starting on Sunday, but in Europe the weekend is usually a "block"...

    1. Hi Antonella!

      That is definitely another common request I am working on. The re-dating process has begun, but I have about 16 different versions that will require date updates so it still may be a few weeks before they hit the shop.

      xoxo!

    2. Hi Jen, another thought for next years release (as i know it would be a massive job for now) is horizontal for the days of the week. I find my handwriting large so can't always get some words written one one line...just a thought :)

      Mel
      P.S. Love the idea of Monday as the start of the week. That's how all our diaries are in australia :)

    3. Thank you so much for the suggestion Melissa! I also have that on my radar and would love to make that layout happen. :)

      xo!

  20. These are great! I love those reusable tabs!

    ReplyDelete
  21. I've never been a paper planner person before, but you have officially made me decide to try it next year! I'm sure you get this question all the time and I may have overlooked it, but what kind of binder do you use for your planner? Is it the smaller size?

    ReplyDelete

    1. Hi Brittany,

      This year I decided to tote around the Kikki-K Personal Planner (A5 - found here: http://www.kikki-k.com/diaries-calendars/planners). I love everything about the size, color, pockets and overall quality. You can find more about all of the different binding options and sources on my FAQ page here: http://www.iheartorganizing.com/p/i-couldnt-be-more-excited-that-iheart.html

      Thank you!

    2. Is the A5 size the large one (240mm x 195mm)? Thanks!

      Delete
    3. Hi Caroline,

      The A5 is comparable to my junior/smaller size. My largest option is US standard Letter size (8 1/2" x 11").

      xoxo!

      Delete
    4. Sorry, I meant which of the Kikki-K planner sizes fits your A5 printables?

      Delete
    5. Oh yes! They A5 + Kikki-K (the personal size) is my current combo - and they pair beautifully. :)

      Delete
  22. Lovely planner! I have a Kate Spade leather agenda and rather than get their refills, I'd like to purchase yours! I may need to measure my planner out though as I believe their refills are about 6" x 4" in size...I'm guessing there's no easy way to scale down your lovely planner to that size?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Ack - the dimensions are confirmed for the refills - 6.75" h and 3.75" w - any chance we could make one of your printable agendas work in this range (plus/minus an inch or two?)

      Delete
    2. Hi Lidia,

      You may be able to adjust printer settings to reduce the planner page size to that page, but I can't guarantee the integrity of the planner will remain as it wasn't specifically designed to those dimensions. Maybe try printing a few pages of a PDF file before purchasing the planner, to be sure it is something that your printer has the ability to do.

      xoxo!

  23. where can you get this printed without costing a fortune?

    1. Hi Whitney,

      I always recommend checking in with locally owned small business print shops, or printing at home. Some online printing companies such as Best Value Copy offer pretty reasonable color printing rates as well.

      Best,
      Jen

    2. My suggestion is to make sure they can print on the right paper (Jen's recommended paper makes all the difference, not too thick or thin but just right so that it won't be as prone to tearing or bleedthrough) or it will be a waste! Maybe they have it there or it might be cheaper to bring your own.
      I'd also ask them to print a couple of pages separately to make sure it's what you want to do.
      I found that the calendars I was looking at at the office supply store and even Walmart were not exactly what I wanted and about the same price as the file Jen sells. I did have to buy a ream of paper from Amazon but it will be enough for a few years and is in itself great for projects anyway, the printer we already had, and the disc system I already had as well. So, in all there is some initial expense but you'll have what you need for the next few calendars as well.

      Just a few thoughts!

  26. Hi Jen. Love your new planner! I was wondering do you use this planner along with a command center calendar? And if you do, how do you combine the two? I am a mother of two busy little girls and love your website! All the ideas have made a big difference in our lives! Thanks
    Leah

    ReplyDelete
  27. Another quick question! Do you also use your iPhone for organizational apps and if you do how do you combine command center calendar and your planner? I would absolutely love to buy your planner and am wondering how to incorporate everything! Thanks Leah❤️

  28. Organizer looks awesome! Love the colors and how bright and cheery is :)

  29. So excited for the Stern! I've been wanting to see your new planner for 2016, perfection!! I can only imagine how much time effort and energy it takes to put these together. Wishing you so much success in the new year and a new level of relaxation to go along with it!

    ReplyDelete
  30. I loved your planner from 2015 and am looking forward to utilizing your 2016 version. I love how happy and colorful they always are.

    I was hoping you would consider doing a post on HOW and WHY you utilize the different planners that you do and also the way in which you color-code with different writing utensils, how you use page flags, binder clips, and other planner accessories you love. Thank you for your inspiration!
