If you have followed my blog a tiny bit you might have noticed that I love Harry Potter AND planners. (and well Disney...)
I love bullet journaling, BUT I am not as fond of it's future planning capabilities. This is why I use BOTH a Happy Planner and Lechtturm1917.
You can see how I inserted a Lechtturm1917 into my Happy Planner here.
I took this idea one step further and disc bound a Lechtturm1917. I added monthly spreads similar to what is found in a Happy Planner! I LOVE the way it turned out.
I made this one for my daughter as a birthday gift. She should consider herself very lucky though, I really wanted to keep it for myself! I will however be making one for myself VERY soon!
I first bought a dotted Lechtturm1917 off of Amazon.
I found some really awesome Harry Potter graphics on Pinterest for the front and back covers. I used Photoshop to make a collage for the front cover. Both front and back covers are sized to fit the Lechtturm1917, 5.75 by 8.25 inches.
I added pictures from a Harry Potter themed photo session to the inside front and back covers. I shot of my daughter the previous year. I really liked that small personal touch and she did too!
I used a single hole punch and scissors for the holes. There was no way my Happy Planner punch was going to get thru 10 mil lamination AND those thick photos. In fact, I almost killed my hole punch and hand getting thru the thickness!

I divided 2017 into quarters. Each Hogwarts house represents a quarter.
|January - March|
|April - June|
|July - September|
|October - December|
I designed monthly spreads to match the Harry Potter theme. These are exactly like the ones found in a Happy Planner, BUT sized to fit the Lechtturm1917.
These monthly spreads are my solution to the future planning qualms that I have with bullet journaling. By having 12 months of pre-made monthly spreads you aren't writing things twice. If you have something to plan 3 months from now, you can write it down on the monthly spread and be done. No transferring of dates.
The monthly spreads, except for the current month, will all, at first, live behind ALL of the dotted Lechtturm1917 sheets. As you plan your months, you will move the current month spread to the section of the Lechtturm1917 you are currently working in. Your weekly and daily spreads (and anything else you created that month - lists, etc.) will then fall behind your monthly pre-made spread! It is the Lechtturm1917/Happy Planner hybrid of my dreams.
You could take this one step forward and created weekly Happy Planner style spreads and insert them, (I did for the one I am making for myself.) BUT I didn't for my daughter because I know she likes to create her own bullet journal style weekly spreads.
There you have it, a Harry Potter themed Lechtturm1917/Happy Planner hybrid! Let me know what you think.
