I finished my Christmas Planner yesterday! Well, the outside, anyway.
I knew that I would need a place to gather my thoughts, ideas, wishlists, shopping lists, plans, etc. for the upcoming holiday season. I also know that waiting to much longer would mean that it wouldn’t get done and I would be chasing down scraps of paper again. I knew when I found this post by the girls at eighteen25 that I had my idea.
This is what I started with:
1 composition notebook
Black ink pad
Candy Cane Christmas Papers from Peppermint Creative
I chose my two main cover papers and printed both of them onto two sheets of cardstock. Then I chose the papers for my large circle and my accent circles and printed those and the tabs onto a third sheet of cardstock.
I followed the instructions for assembly here.
From choosing papers to final product took about an hour, which is not a bad investment in having a little more peaceful holiday.
I have six tabs on my notebook – Budget, Lists, Calendar, Decor, Food, and Cards. I’ll talk a little more about the interior of the notebook later this week.
Best of all, the composition notebook is just the right size to tuck into my purse. I know my kids are always finding things to add to their wishlists, so having a designated place to make notes of that is nice. I envision this becoming a little bit of a Christmas Smash Book – tucking inspiration from magazines and catalogs, lists from the kids, notes, and other ephemera in with the other bits and pieces of information I always need this time of year.
Do you have a Christmas Planner? There’s nothing I love more than looking at other people’s planners, so link me up!
