2016 Marion Smith Planners Lovers Retreat | Event Review Part 2

My Marion Smith Planner With Some of the Goodies I got at the Show.

The Marion Smith 2016 Planner Lovers Retreat in Pasadena California was a fun way to meet other planners and see planner related merchandise in person. There are not a lot of stores who carry the types of planner supplies that I like to use in planning my layouts, so often I have to order off Etsy or go to my local craft stores to find items.  Getting to see these Etsy vendors in person, at a Planner Event, makes it so easy to know what planner accessories will work in various planners and travelers notebooks.

One of my favorite type of planner goody is planner clips (decorated paper clips).  I saw this cute Bunny Page Clip from the Elite Planners Club and had to purchase it.


Veronica Love, the founder of the Elite Planners Club, also had a few more of her great planner Clip designs available. Below is just a sampling.

The sticker selection at the show was amazing.  Stickersters had an amazing selection on display of their stickers collection.

These ladies had everything from Harry Potter Fan themed stickers to Yoga Stickers and everything in between.  They even had grab bags of stickers that did not quite make the cut for around $5 for 6 half sheets and 2 quarter sheets of stickers (a really great deal). I personally love grab bags because it gives me a great selection of stickers and it is a fun way to get acquainted with new (new to me) sticker company.

If you like the colors from the Inkwell Press Planners, then you will enjoy the selection of stickers available from The Busy Bee Shop.  These stickers looked great in my Inkwell Press planner.

I particularly liked the color scheme that she had on display at the Planner Lovers Retreat.

She has other color schemes at her shop.

Another Great Sticker shop was Clicky Chic Creates from Etsy.  The Clicky Chic Creates pop up shop had a fun assortment of stickers.

The owner, Connie, was such fun to talk to. She has a Facebook Page and Instagram page where you can find out about new releases and sticker specials.

She designs her stickers in a variety of themes to suit various occasions.  


She only brought a sampling of stickers from her line, so I encourage you to visit her Etsy store to see more.

The next booth I stopped at was Peace_Aloha_Shakas, who carried a great selection of cute charms for my planner.


I was able to buy 3 different Pokeman charms (including Pikachu) for my daughter to put on her planner. I also bought the simple silver circle with pink elastic for my Marion Smith Planner.

Another fund booth, I stopped by was the "Uglidori" table where Dania Salgado makes these beautiful custom fabric Fauxdoris and keychains.

She had a donut themed Fauxdori with pockets that I just had to have.

As well as these tiny fauxdoris in assorted patterns and fabrics.  These are so darling. Diana also has an instagram account @pageflagfeen  where she posts some of her planner layouts.
 

Diana was kind enough to make me a miniature fauxdori to match my larger fauxdori. It is really cute.

For those who want to know what was in the Marion Smith Planner Retreat swag bag and a look at the various cute swap items I got, I will be posting part III soon.

I should mention that Marion Smith now has her products on Amazon which makes it easier to find them.  I particularly like the Marion Smith 30 day planner which I use for blogging to plan my next 30 blog posts.  It really helps keep me organized. If you want to see a flip through video of that planner, just leave a comment below to let me know.
