Christmas Planners

I bought these journals from Michael's last year, hoping to cover them and sell them at the Farmer's Market. When I took off the cellophane, I realized there were Christmas images printed on each page...so I had to think of something FAST!

I decided to make a Christmas Planner notebook, somewhere people could make a list of people to buy gifts for, send Christmas cards to, wish lists, spending costs, what you bought for who (I do this cuz I ALWAYS forget!), etc. I hope it's a good idea?!?!?!

I also added some tabs so people could label them and attach them wherever they wanted - make it more personal. THAT was Tim's idea...isn't he smart? I was just going to attach them in random places in the journal!! The insides and outsides of both front & back cover are covered & the pen matches each journal. I take the journal completely apart, recover it, decorate it, then put it back together! My poor little fingers after taking the coils off of these ones!!! LOL



This is Christmas Moose from Rachelle Anne Miller. I don't actually own this stamp but someone sent me a bunch of images so I thought I would use one cuz he is soooo cute!!!!



The paper is called Snowed In from My Mind's Eye and the image is Lizzie with Muff by Whiff of Joy. Again, this is an image that was sent to me, I don't actually own this stamp!


This is Melinda Christmas Angel. I DO own this stamp - LOL..... The paper is some retired SU stuff - can't remember the name of it though, sorry!! The rest of the paper is Purely Pomegranate, a colour I miss - wish it didn't retire!!! booo hoooooo

More paper from Snowed In by My Mind's Eye. I added stickles to the die cut tree at the top and a snowflake brad to the tag. No stamping on this one, the paper was too pretty to cover up!!!! I love that bird!!!!

Thanks for stopping by!! What do you think? Do you think these would sell at a craft market??? Good idea? Bad idea????

Happy Saturday!!!!!

I think it's such a good idea that I'm going to make one for my girls... my daughter and daughter-in-law both work and I'm sure they'll love this. Maybe I'll do some for our bazaar too... and the girls at work... and my Red Hat Group and...well, enough said. Thank you so much for the idea! God bless. Linda
