Planner Girls Collective: Planner Meets – Pamper, Plan and Create 2018

Hey Everyone and welcome to another Planner Girls Collective post.

This week we have all picked our own topic and today I will be talking about planner meet-up’s, particularly Pamper, Plan and Create (PPC) which I was lucky enough to go to earlier this month.

PPC is organised by three beautiful ladies. Michelle Mills of Ugly Bug Plans, Leanne Snowball of The Geeky Planner and Kelly Bendelow of HazyDaysUK. The first PPC was last year (2017) and was in Newcastle. Unfortunely I couldn’t make that.

PPC was originally set up to provide a relaxing environment for people to get together and share a love for all things stationery. Set to be in the North of England to give those who couldn’t attend southern meet-up’s a chance to partake.

I got really lucky this year and my beautiful friend Debbie purchased a day ticket for me. The tickets are sold either as a day ticket or a weekend ticket which includes an overnight stay and meals.

I was really looking forward to going. I was 50% nervous and 50% excited. I was worried I wouldn’t make it due to either my illness or the horrendous snow that showed up the week of the event. However, I managed to make it and last the day.

I had an amazing time. I got to meet some amazing people and what’s more, I didn’t feel out of place for my hobby. I felt at home.

The day was so relaxed and easy going. Kelly held a travelling workshop on Brush Lettering which I loved and has helped a lot. There were stalls from shop owners which I got to meet and browse.

We also got the most fantastic goodie bags which were little craft totes. They were full of freebies and discount codes. We even got Erin Condren items and a gift certificate for a full price planner from Personal-Planner.

The best thing though…the table I was sat with. Table 3 was fantastic, what an amazing bunch of ladies I got lucky sitting with.

Honestly if anyone ever has doubts about attending a meet, don’t, you will really enjoy it. I’m going to save to attend PPC again next year as I really loved the atmosphere the girls worked so hard on achieving. All in all it was a massive success in my eyes.

Now here are some pictures:)

Mini Planner Meet Up

Myself and another planner lady Michelle organised a little planner meet up. We plan on organising a larger one to give people more notice and at a better venue.

Due to the short notice only 3 of us managed to make it but it was still great fun.

We met at Costa Coffee in Teesside Retail Park.

We chatted, had drinks, food and discussed the all important planners. We all had a look at each others planners and admired planner styles. It was nice to see the A5 Malden, Yellow Kikki.K and Carpe Diem planners in action as I’d only ever seen photo’s previously.

Of course no planner addict could resist the pull of stationery shops when at a retail park. It was my first ever visit to a Hobbycraft and a proper Paperchase (my closest one is a tiny franchise). I managed to control myself and not buy every single washi tape in there. I did pick up a few bits and bobs for myself and my daughters birthday.

The day wouldn’t be complete without pictures of our planners, gorgeous planner peeps and pretty purchases:)









I’ll be sure to announce when we arrange the big North-East meet!
