Christmas is a comin'!

Hey there my stampin' friends!  I am really excited to show you what I created this weekend.  I've wanted to make one for awhile and I finally sat down and did it.  Woot!  Here's my new project....I'm calling it the

"Vintage Christmas Planner"


The planer is made from Soft Suede card stock and is decorated with one of my favorite Designer Series Paper packs, "Spice Cake".  I made the lollie on the front cover into more of an oval shape than the usual circle shape.  The embossed oval is Soft Suede with the center oval stamped on Very Vanilla.  The ribbon is 5/8" Very Vanilla Satin and the bow is fastened together with one of the Vintage Brads.

The planner has four separate sections.... When you open it up the first two sections are the "Gift List"/"Stocking Stuffer" pocket with lists on the left and the "Menus"/"Recipe Cards" pocket on the right. (Did I mention that they are expandable pockets???  Cool, huh?)  All three pockets are embossed with the Northern Flurries Embossing Folder on the Big Shot.


Each of the pockets expand leaving room to add other lists or maybe your receipts...

There are five recipe cards included in the pocket...
The when you open the right side up once more you will reveal the "Memo Pad" section in the middle of the planner and the "Calendar" pocket on the right side of the planner....


The notepad and matching pen.....
Calendar pages with space to add your "To Do" list...

The back cover of the Planner....
I've decided to offer this planner as an upcoming stamp camp.  I love sharing projects like this one.  They are SO much fun to make.  I'll be posting the class schedule soon so....stay tuned!
I'm also considering offering this project as a "DIY Kit".  The kit price would include all the parts and pieces to make one "Vintage Christmas Planner" except for the stamp sets and adhesive.  
I'll keep you posted on that front too.  :-)

Alrighty then....I'm off to get ready for my first day back at work since surgery.  It should be fun since I'm still on crutches and in a cast.  Hopefully the kids will go easy on me.  Hahahaha

Wishing you a wonderful week ahead....

  2. Wow, I am blown away by your planner. I would love to sign up for your class but you probably live way to far from me to be able to do that. Could you/would you please share your instructions with me, via email (aspeck1@cox.net) or to link back here.
