Hi, I’m Toni, I’m a mummy to one very active and cheeky 21 month old. I’m from Mid Wales, and absolutely love the area. I’m getting married this year to my amazing partner (he can tell the difference between a Filofax and a Kikki K, and a TN a keeper for sure) so exciting, my family knows me well as they bought me a purple A5 Malden as an engagement present to plan the wedding. I’ve always loved planners I think my first was a filofax at the age of 13, I used to doodle all over it but it was primarily to record my nail polish collection. I’d have lots of little swatches and the names and carry it around so I didn’t buy the same polish twice.
I’ve always been creative, art and craft. I studied art throughout school and went to college and completed a fashion and clothing construction course so fabric holds a special place in my heart. Maybe I’ll do something with fabric in the shop at some point.
I started the shop to have something for me, going from working full-time to being a stay at home Mum was a shock to the system, I’m also quite shy meeting people so an online shop is perfect for me. I never thought I’d actually sell anything and now I still can’t believe I am. I’m so grateful for all the support I’ve had in the last 8 months. I’ve made some fab friends and met so many lovely people along the way. My design team has been amazingly supportive. I’ve been overwhelmed by how lovely the planner community is.
Stickers, lots of stickers. You can never have enough, right? My focus is on kits, weekly and monthly for a whole range of planners. I also do custom orders for inserts and dividers but I’m hoping to get my dividers and page markers in the shop soon.
3) Is there an item which you have made that you have loved above all others?
It’s got to be my original boho themed kits. It’s the kit in the shop that is the most ‘me’. I originally made it in the personal and happy planner size but have added to the collection now as it’s been so popular. It was the first kit I made and I love it. I’ve used it so many times in my own planners, I don’t think I’ll ever get board of it.
4) What is your most popular seller?
5) What inspired your shop name?
I’m so awful at picking names, I called on my Mum to help and she came up with FabPlannerPrint. If you knew me you’d be able to tell why in a few minutes. Everything is fab! I say it all the time. The plan originally was to offer printable items hence the print part. I’ve moved to printed stickers but still love the name.
6) What planner do you use?
Ok, you can’t have too many planners can you?
A personal planner (I change the planner quite a lot) I use this as my handbag (really a changing bag, I can’t wait to have a handbag again) planner.
A classic Happy Planner as my home planner.
A5 purple Malden is my wedding planner.
A Websters TN rose Gold as my business planner.
A mini Happy Planner is for my other business
I also have a ECLP, an A5, and am on the hunt for a large Happy Planner as I use them for the shop to do layouts and kit tests. I may also sneak some personal planning bits in them as well, can’t let those stickers go to waste.
7) What is your planning style?
It changes constantly, there has been so many life changes over the last couple of years that it needs to be updated all the time. That’s part of the fun for me as well. I always have some decoration but I love functional box stickers, washi strips any thing that will help me pack as much info on the page as I can.
8) What are your social media channels?
9) What is your planner ‘unicorn’
I have my unicorn! My partner picked me a personal Aqua Malden a few years ago and it remains my favourite. I just love everything about it.
