So once again it seems that Christmas is sneaking up on us! With just over a month to go and only two more weeks of school left for the year, I NEED to get organised! So I customised a fun little notebook to be my Christmas Planner!
I had a small notebook in my arsenal of unused stationery (lol!) so i grabbed it and some items from the American Crafts Christmas collection. I started by covering my notebook in patterned paper - I simply adhered it using double sided tape.
I added a few embellishments to the front cover starting with a patterned gift tag and layering different pieces from the collection over the top. I used my typewriter to add the words to the front.
I've added a clip to the cover also as a place to add in receipts, discount coupons etc.
Finally, I created different sections in my notebook such as 'Gifts', To-Do's', 'Food & Baking' and 'Christmas Cards'. For the start of each section I added a patterned paper border to the page, a small piece of gold glitter washi tape and then a typed heading. Perfect!
I've actually popped my little planner in a ziploc bag with a pen so it is somewhat protected when I throw it in my handbag to take with me!
I love having a place where all my lists, notes and ideas can be! I hope if makes the whole festive season a bit less stressful for me so I can relax and enjoy family time!
