Another project finished.

I finished it today, My long-awaited Christmas planner. Now I can't wait to actually write in it! I have updated the front since my previous post on this. It has been nice to have some time to actually scrap today, I have been spending my usual 'scrapping time' on blogging, so this has been a nice change.

Inside I wanted a calendar month to note what what happening in December:

My Gift list, which is currently scribbled on a piece of paper!

This little pocket will hold all of the receipts from my purchases, they will slot in at the top.

I am going to use this page for nearer the time, those little bits you still need to buy.

For my Internet orders, websites etc.

I used printed acetate for the pages for my card list. There are 8 pages for this.

The cute little reindeer are a recent purchase from Paperchase, I fell in love with them instantly!

Another little envelope for vouchers, tickets, coupons and invites throughout December. The tab is held down with Velcro so everything doesn't fly out.

Food shopping list, I used my bind-it-all and added an extra page.

To scribble food ideas down:

Another envelope for recipes:

I needed a place to scribble crafting projects!

And finally a little notes page, for all those extra bits you think of.

I have saved the back page at the moment as I am going to put a picture of the Christmas tree from this year on it.
Bye for now.

This looks so cool....and is going to be so useful.....I may think about doing one myself.

Kim said...

I have one too! lol. I have gotten my Christmas cards made, now just to address them!

Lizzie said...

Wow Rachel! That is fabulous! Mind if I borrow your idea a bit and make one for myself?
Love the Paperchase reindeer. May have to go there very soon. I do like Paperchase but the nearest is in Milton Keynes, 20 miles away and I don't get there very often... must find an excuse!

What a wonderful idea. I'm doing a big file for JYC this year and am tempted to put some of your ideas in it as extra, useful pages.
