I am soooooooooooooo excited to share my project with you today!
I hope you like it!
It's a combination of a couple of ideas!
It is a GREAT way to get ready for all your Black Friday shopping and the rest of your holiday season!
A Christmas Planner!
It was really quite simple to make too! The main part is two sheets of 8 1/2 x 11 cs cut down to 8 x 8 1/2 and glued together. Some scorelines and then decorate! The pockets are just cardstock or designer paper adhered with redline tape. The cover able is SU dp, top note die ran through swiss dots cb folder and then inked and distressed. MTME Secret Santa "Christmas" Stamp and Santa hat with Marvy Liquid Applique (which apparently you CAN burn), old alphas, Making Memories Poinsettia, Stampin Up Twill.
This is the main opening the first page is mostly decorative and tells what the planner contains. more SU dp, cardstock, a Tim Holtz binder clip with some twine. I punched the edge to look like notebook paper. The bell stamp is from MTME Secret Santa and the dec.25 is SU Tags Till Christmas.
The second page is a shopping list more SU dp and SU stamp again from Tags Till Christmas stamped in green then on a red scalloped square. Next page - the blank one is for receipts and giftcards maybe (I always buy them then can't find them!) The pocket is SU dp and Making Memories poinsettias. The last page has little mini calendar sheets with monthly to do's. The stamp on that page is from MTME's Secret Santa. I cut it out with Oval Nestabilities.
This is one of the back pages that folds in. It is for cards, sent/recieved etc. Used a little spellbinders mitten die and inked it before popping it out then added some twine. used Basic Grey letters to spell cards.
This is another of the back pages that folds in. It is lists of menus or baking duties - you could also add the grocery lists for those things. I used red thickers to spell FOOD and a little gingerbread guy from MTME's The Gingersnaps. All the printable sheets are from OrganizedChristmas.com. I hope you like it - and maybe be inspired to make your own! Be sure to share with me if you do!
Today I am Thankful for the fact that my hubby is incredibly handy! The man can fix, re-purpose, build just about ANYTHING! There are many things I wish my husband was but I think he makes up for most of them with his handiness!
