Humble beginnings--think manila file folder--don't hold back this ultra-creative holiday planner from papercrafter Daniel Dobson! Blogging as For The First Time, Daniela's got a sizzling entry in the Christmas pocket planner category.
Sewn and stamped, inked and embellish, this Christmas pocket planner is a knock-out. And don't miss the clever use of small binder clips as both embellishment and structural device. It's a stunner!
Better still? Free stamp sets! Hurry on over to Daniela's blog and leave a comment to be entered in a November 15 stamp set give-away (and tell her Cynthia sent you!)
When it comes to making a workable Christmast planner, embellishments, stamped designs and lavish ribbons are nice to have, but simple's good, too! And when the Christmas planner project helps empty the craft stash and make good use of small scraps of paper? It's a stand-out project!
Check out these designs from blogger team Karen and Martha from Scrappin' Our Stash 2009. Using inexpensive pocket folders from the office supply store, these clever, sustainable folder-based planners are fast to make, fun to use.
The Christmas Countdown has started, notes UK stamper Bekka--so she's made it easy to make a list and check it twice with a Christmas pocket planner.
Showcased at her Feeling Crafty blog, Bekka's clever use of specialty punches and scrapbooking embellishments makes this project a stand-out. The tall column with the scalloped notch makes a tidy home for holiday receipts, while the turned-down pockets to either side keep Christmas pocket planner forms handy.
Check it out--and while you're visiting, don't miss Bekka's offer to e-mail assembly instructions for this beautiful Christmas pocket planner:
