The Planner Society - TPS 2017 Planner Meet Up Event - Day 1 - Part 1

The Planner Society September Kit - 2017

I recently had the opportunity to attend "The Planner Society" TPS 2017 event where I got to spend two days planning, socializing and having a great time with ladies who shared my love of planning.  The event was put on by Christy Tomlinson who is the creator of the Scarlet Lime and "The Planner Society" monthly subscription kit.

  As we entered the room for the event, we were greeted by several of the TPS crew and they

handed us an amazing swag bag full of really fun items that we can use in our planners and or memory planning, that included the July Planner Society kit.
These were the contents of the #TPSCROP2017swag bags.

As if that wasn't enough, each seat had a place setting of items that included:

  • a Planner Society Baseball Cap
  • a Planner Society Mug
  • a Fairy Themed Travelers Notebook
  • a Planner Society August Kit and more.

Here is a picture that shows some of the items that were included in the August kit. 

The blue travelers' notebook you see in the picture is the new Planner Society Fairy themed travelers notebook.

Here is what it looks like opened up.

For those who are unfamiliar with the Planner Society, here is a little background on monthly kits.  The monthly Planner Society Scrapbooking and Planner Crafting Kit are all designed by Christy Tomlinson and her team.  The Planner Society Scrapbooking and Planner Kit can be ordered as a single kit with or without add-ons.  The Basic Planner Society kit is $24.95 plus Shipping.  The basic kit offers two-sided printed papers (sometimes they are made from vellum or other printable paper), stickers, planner clips, colorful tabs (with pre-printed labels you can attach) and so much more.  I did a review of the Planner Society August 2016 kit that you can read to see examples of the different types of items that can come in a kit. You can also add a Sticker Kit for an additional $16.50 plus shipping (if you subscribe to the box the shipping is free). If you use a planner with boxes, like the Happy Planner's, you should know that Christy Tomlinson also offers a box sticker kit which sells for $17.50 plus shipping.  The last add-on item is the Washi Tape Kit. The Planner Society Washi Tape Kit sells for $11.95 plus shipping and includes three different sizes of washi tape that share the theme for that specific month. If you love pretty floral prints, then you will love these kits.  You can get a better idea of the kit contents and how to use them by checking out the Planner Society Instagram Account, where Christy uploads sneak peaks into the upcoming kits.  The Planner Society also has a fan Facebook page where people post some of the layouts that they do with their kits.

There was a photo booth area filled with props and cameras

where we could take photos throughout the event.

Once everyone was settled in, Christy gave an opening speech which was followed by the workshops. I will do a separate post on the workshops. For those who are interested, I have included below the schedule of events for each day.

Note: There was a poll in the TPS2017Crop facebook group as to who had the cutest/ coolest PJs.  I cannot remember who won but I think they were all cute.

 You can see that we were kept pretty busy throughout the two days. Also, there are so many photos and amazing moments that I decided I will break down this event review or overview into several parts.  So check back to see more.

Disclaimer: I am not associated with "The Planner Society" organization, nor was I paid to do this review.  I paid for my ticket with my own funds and these are just my memories and opinions of the event.  My experience may differ from someone else's.


  1. I never heard of this event until reading this. I’m so hoping there will be another. I have so many partial kits and I didn’t listen to the woman I bought them from to keep them together. I didn’t get my own first kit until 2/18 but have about 10 others prior from fb purchases. Ugh. I have never written in someone’s comment before so I don’t know if you would respond to this.Thanks for the info

    1. Keep an eye out for when the tickets go on sale. They usually sell out within an hour. It is a really fun event.
