Planning for Christmas!
While looking at other blogs last week, I saw several ladies that were making Christmas Planners to get organized with the Christmas holiday that is "just around the corner". I fell in love with these planners and decided to make one for myself.....and also the ladies at work, sister and a special blog friend! I got started by looking up "Christmas Planner" and got several tutorials on how to make them. The one I chose to use was made from a plain, manila office folder.
This is what the outside of one of them looks like. I used retired SU! Christmas DSP to decorate this planner, along with some cute winter decorations that coordinated so well with this paper. You may not be able to see in this photo but the red on the stripes has glitter on it and really sparkles. I added some SU! rhinestones to the label that I printed off of the computer to add even more sparkle. Blushing Bride and Bashful Blue cardstock matches perfect.
When you open the planner, you get this:
Again, I went to "Mr.Google" and searched Christmas Planner inserts and it brought me to a site that had calendars, gift list pages, Christmas card pages, shopping list pages, holiday party planning pages etc. You can pick and choose whatever you want to add to your personal planner. For the ones I made I printed off the current October, November and December calendars (below the calendar is a spot for things to do this month), shopping list pages and gift list pages. I had some snowflake embellishments that I purchased last year on sale that I added to some of the folders pockets.
I hope you enjoyed looking at all of my holiday planners and maybe I have inspired you to make one for yourself (or even a couple to give away!)
Happy holiday planning :)
