Trying Out the NEW Happy Planner Deluxe Cover

Have I told you lately that I LOVE Me and My Big Ideas? Let me take a moment to gush. I’ve never heard of another company who is so involved with their customers. They’re incredibly active on social media, and they’re always hosting fun contests and such on Instagram. As a customer, I love supporting companies who obviously care about their tribe.

A few weeks ago, girlboss Stephanie Fleming asked the planner community to share their version of #thehappyplannerDANCE to Pharrell Williams’ “Happy” for her class at Pinners. I’m definitely not a dancer, but it was too fun not to participate. You can watch my awkward Happy Planner Dance here.

As a thank you, MAMBI sent several planner babes an early copy of the new Deluxe Covers! I’ve been seeing the gorgeous covers popping up on Instagram the last couple days. There are so many beautiful covers. I know I’m going to have to buy a few more, because the colors are all so pretty!

These Deluxe Covers will be at Michael’s in late October, and they’ll be on the MAMBI shop soon after that.  I wanted to share some photos to help you decide that you need one. Because let’s be real planner girls, that’s the only option here.

Happy Planner Cover

My cover is rose gold, and it’s GORGEOUS. I seriously can’t stop staring at how pretty it is. I’ve been trying to talk myself out of the rose gold Happy Planner for awhile, but I may need to just go ahead and buy it now. Need. Yes, it’s a need now.

If you want to check out a few of the other colors, my friend Heather has shared photos of a gold cover and a white cover with white embossed polka dots here. My friend Liz has shared photos of a coral cover here.


The inside of my rose gold cover is this gorgeous shade of blue. It looks so pretty with my Be Bright Happy Planner!


There are several pockets in the front that are perfectly sized for MAMBI sticker books. I stuck just the back cover of this sticker book in the pocket, so I can flip through the stickers without taking it out.


Here’s a better look at how the Happy Planner slides into the Deluxe Cover. There’s also a pen loop and another pocket that a MAMBI sticker book will fit in perfectly.


It’s so gorgeous. I’m so excited to start carrying my planner in this cover, because I know it’s going to be an excellent conversation starter. I can’t wait to tell the world about the Happy Planner!



The back cover is embossed with “The Happy Planner.” I love this classy little detail!


I took the above and below photos so you can see how much can fit in the cover.

Above you can see how the cover fits with my planner which has the fitness expansion and a pack of extra notes pages. There are no sticker books in the above photo.

Below, you can see how the cover fits with my planner, a value sticker pack, two regular sticker packs and a sticky note dashboard.

I have the regular discs on my planner, but the MAMBI team has said the expander discs fit well, too.



As a reminder, the deluxe covers will be released in Michaels at the end of October. They’ll be on the MAMBI shop soon after.

I also want to say a HUGE thanks to the MAMBI team for giving some planner girls the opportunity to try out the covers early. Y’all are the best!

What color are you planning to get? Let me know in the comments!



    • Hi, Monica! I have two deluxe covers. The snap on one of them came off after about a month, but me & my BIG ideas replaced it. They’ve held up well since!

  • Hi (:
    I’m living in France and it’s so hard to find Mambi stuff .. it’s the second year I’ve got a Happy planner, and I love it so much ! I’m very interested and in love about the Yellow cover but … can’t find it in France at the moment. Hope to could buy one soon !

  • I’m getting the big happy planner and was debating on getting the cover causes I really liked the cover of webster’s pages planner but thought that the happy planner would be better for what I want. I will be mainly carrying it in my backpack with other school books so I don’t want it to be too bulky. Would you think the regular cover or the deluxe cover would be better? (Not sure if you have tried the regular ones lol)

    • Hi Haley! If I were going to be putting a BIG Happy Planner in a backpack, I would probably use a snap-in cover. They’re super durable and sturdy, so they’re less likely to get messed up in your bag than laminated covers. A BIG Deluxe Cover will probably be a little bigger and bulkier than you would want to put in a backpack.

      If you like that style of cover, you may want to stop by Michaels and try putting a planner in one of the covers to see what you think of the size. You may love it!

  • I find that my planner rings come off my planner plastic cover when it’s in there. Is there a way to fix that?

    • Sorry you’re having that problem, Sarah! I haven’t had this issue, so I don’t have any tips.
