Hi guys! I have a fun post to share today- I shared a look at my new Happy Planner for 2016-2017 and I mentioned how I love the interchangeability and how you can add things to the planner. I feel like it is a big misconception that you need to have printables sized exactly for the Happy Planner. I’m going to show you how to take any letter size printable and make it work!
Note: I now have TWO video tutorials over on my Youtube channel. One to resize letter size pages for the classic happy planner AND one to resize half letter size printables for the MINI happy planner!
I’d also love to invite you to join the Planning Inspired group on Facebook!
Okay, so you have a printable, and you want to use it for your Happy Planner! That is no problem.
The magic number is 84. 84% is what you need to scale the printable to in order to make it fit.
Open up your PDF printable.
Open up the print window.
Set the “custom scale” to 84%. Now, not all print windows look the same- it can vary with different computers and printers, but the steps should be something like this.
Once you’ve printed your printable, trim it down. Play around with how much white space you leave around the edges. You’ll notice when my printable is in the book it is shorter on the top and bottom edges than I would like, but all I would need to do is leave some extra white space. Don’t like the extra? Dress it up with some washi tape!
If you want to be precise and measure the page so that they line up exactly, the happy planner pages are 7 x 9.25 inches.
And there you have it- super simple and you can add ANY printable to your planner!
