Here's a pretty entry in the Christmas pocket planner category: a multi-year planner from Louise at the Home is Where My Craft Room Is craft blog.
This elegant planner sports a distinctive color scheme using coordinated patterned papers. Inside, I really like the labelled pockets; no confusion about what goes where!
Best, the project is easy enough for this crafts-challenged editor. And while Louise used a commercial digital product to print out her lists, it would be just as easy to use the free Christmas pocket planner pages offered over at Organized Christmas to fill pockets with printed forms.
An inexpensive notebook turns planning powerhouse as Danae adds divider tabs, embellishments, a pretty cover, and lots of organizer pockets. A paper-pieced bird graces the cover of this pretty, easy planner project:
Oh, golly--isn't this a bright, crisp version of a handmade Christmas planner?
Talented stamp artist Bekka's Feeling Crafty blog highlights her beautiful, multi-paged Christmas planner. Using stamping techniques and coordinated patterned paper and cardstock, she's created a luscious planner to make and share.
Not to nudge her or anything, but we'd love to see the tutorial on the Web! Until then, her blog post offers to share instructions by email.
Anybody else raring to make this pretty planner? Nice job!
Not being especially gifted in the artistic area, I'm always amazed to see what a talented paper-crafter can do to jazz up a printable form!
Don't believe me? Just check out these Christmas planner forms from the Paper Crafting Obsession blog! Mistress of the digital arts, blogger Tami has taken simple lists and directories to a whole new level--and better still, she's sharing them with you!
One caveat: these printables are offered as image files, not in the more-standard .PDF versions. You'll want to save them to your hard drive (usually, a right-click on the image will let you save them), and open and print them. This also helps Tami stay within her bandwidth budget, so be kind!
