Classic and Beautiful: Becca's Holiday Planner

Becca's Holiday PlannerWant a great way to kickstart planning for Christmas, 2010? Check out this handmade holiday planner from Becca at Amazing Paper Grace blog.

Looking at this lovely project made me itching to get out my Spellbinders dies and play! The cover ornaments, shaped and embossed, give a classic touch to this project.

Lush ribbon closures and a stamped title make this an elegant holiday planner that would be a joy to use.

Inside the planner, don't miss three notebooks for list-making. Becca's made her own notebooks and list pad; if you're not-so-crafty, adding a cover to a repurposed notebook would shortcut the project.

Great job, Becca! Kick off a new holiday season with a visit to her blog to check out this creative Christmas planner:

Lunch Sacks Transformed: Queen Kat's Holiday Planner

Creativity has taken a simple stack of paper sacks to a pearl of an organizer: meet Queen Cat's Christmas planner!

Posting from stamping blog Queen Kat's Stamping Castle, this talented stamper began with a base of everyday lunch sacks, then punched, stamped and embellished her way to a useful--and gorgeous--holiday organizer. I think she must have had a LOT of fun creating this planner, judging from the many different stamping techniques, products and embellishments used to create it.

The project is so big, it took two blog entries to cover it. Tour Queen Kat's Christmas planner at these two links:

Home for the Holidays: Mrs. B's Holiday Planner

holiday plannerZowie! Look at this amazing Christmas planner, created by craft blogger Mrs. B from Mrs. B's Craft Room: a house-shaped confection of a holiday planner.

The unique shape was created by using a Cricut Personal Electronic Cutting Machine; binding appears to have been done with a Bind It All craft tool.

Inside, computer generated lists, calendars and planners have been glued to each house-shaped page. While Mrs. B created her own lists, we think you could use down-sized Christmas pocket planner pages from Organized Christmas.

Ribbons, buttons, stickers and embellishments make this unique planner sparkle! Check it out:
