I started bullet journaling this year and it has helped me tremendously! I also started gardening this year. So before I knew it, my bullet journal also became my gardening journal. I have already decided to use a ring bound system next year, like Happy Planner. I have been looking for one with a gardening theme with no luck... until now! I am so excited to see that y'all made this template. It is perfect! My current journal fits in my purse but I doubt this one will. Is it possible to print the pages in a smaller format so they will fit in a smaller version of the Happy Planner? Thanks!!! Hurray!

Hi Amy, we've been asking ourselves this question as well, and we want to make sure that this works in all sizes. I'm going to see how feasible it is to resize down the file that we currently have to make it work. If you know - what size is the smaller format that you have right now? Or could you give me a link to the smaller Happy Planner you're wanting to use? One way or another we'll make this work!

Hi Amy!!
Bullet Journaling has been a total game changer for me, too!

I'm not sure which size Happy Planner you have (mini?), but I did some quick Googling, and saw that others have figured out the exact percentage to print your pages in order to fit all of the different sizes Thumbs up
Let me know if you need additional help!

Hey guys!

I haven't bought a Happy Planner yet. But I will probably get the Classic size.

Planner dimensions:


Covers - 7.75" x 9.75"
Pages - 7" x 9.25"


Here's a link to one:

Would I just click "Print" then change the Scale to a certain percentage?

It would be a big help if the pages were numbered. Makes it easier to print different ranges of pages.

Amy, I did a test print at 82% and it came in at just about the right size. So yes, just change the scale in your print and it'll come out how you want it. You should experiment with different numbers until you find exactly the one that works for you, then print them all out at that scale. A guillotine paper cutter would be a wise investment. I can't live without mine and I use it all the time.

Paul, you can do that in your software that you're using for reading and working with the PDF. In mine, it shows the page numbers in the software but it doesn't print the numbers to the paper. I think they intentionally left off numbers because everybody will use the printed pages in completely different order.
