Christmas Planner

Hello, Diana here. Christmas is a very busy season for a lot of us, so how about making a Planner to keep you organized; this is the one I made.

I used this Mixed Media Album from Basically Bare; it has four envelopes and a chipboard separator in the middle.

The paper line is from Fancy Pants Tradition collection, alphas are from KI Memories and Making Memories Glitter Stickers, the embellishments I used to make the star is Pink Paislee house of three Flair and a vintage button from my stash.

Because the album has envelopes my planner can be used year after year, I just need to tuck in the specific list and toss it away once the holiday is over.

If you need help figuring out what to put in your book, just Google Holiday or Christmas planner and you’ll find a few sites that offer ideas, some even have downloadable PDF lists.

This is the chipboard separator; I made a 5th envelope with the pattern paper to add an extra list.

The last two envelopes have the fold facing inside so you can appreciate a little better the shape; I also decorated the backs but did not embellish them.

As extra embellishments I used alpha stickers from October Afternoon, twine and assorted brads, this paper is so pretty that it did not need that many decorations.

This is how the planner looks open.

As always I hope I was able to bring some inspiration to your day.
