We had a great time at the first ever Chicago Planner Conference. Here's a recap and some free printables!

Wow, I can't believe it has already been a week since Chicago Planner Conference! I wanted to do a quick recap of the event and share some freebies with all of you! Before I jump into that I wanted to talk a little bit about how much fun CPC2018 was to be a part of. I first learned of the conference over coffee with one of the organizers, Tamasin, the day after I returned from maternity leave. I knew I had a full plate having just gotten back to work, but I also knew I really wanted Blitsy to be a part of her big plans. So, we made it happen!

We decided to sponsor a Make N' Take Room so that the attendees could have some hands on planning and crafty time. I invited some of my favorite people to host the projects:. Amy Fligel led Planner Stamping with Contact Crafts Stamps, Ken Oliver showed everyone how to make some really cool bookmarks with Color Burst, and Brittany Luiz showed the basics of hand lettering and explained the difference between Tombow Dual Brush Pens, Fudenosukes, and Twin Tones. We certainly crammed a lot of information into an hour, but I think it worked out really well!

We were also giving away some amazing swag bags during the conference! Everybody was loving the "Made with ❤️ in Chicago" bags without even knowing what was inside! Each bag was different, but had things like Me and My Big Ideas Stickers, Webster's Pages Planners and Binders, Simple Stories Carpe Diem goodies, and so much more!
