2013 Christmas Planners

Hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving!  Once again, my sister ROCKED Thanksgiving for us at her place! 

I made my first Christmas planner 2 years ago.  Last year I didn't make any because I delivered a 10-pound baby on 11/28, so yeah!  'Nuf said!  I guess I'm making up for it this year because I've made 3 different kinds!

Here's the kind I made 2 years ago using a Composition notebook.  I used Echo Park's Reflections Christmas Collection paper and stickers.  Love this collection!

I used my Cavallini & Co Vintage Christmas washi tape to cover the black binding.  This is a gorgeous Christmas paper tape collection!

 Here's the back.

I also decided to do the same thing only with a spiral notebook because I like being able to fold back the cover and any other pages I'm not know what I mean?  You can't do that so well with a Composition notebook.  Here's how it turned out:

I didn't put a ribbon on this one.  And if I do another one, I'll get a red or green notebook since it shows through around the spiral binding.  I can't really cover it up with washi or it won't fold back, which is the whole purpose of using this type of notebook.

Here's the back and the calender page.

And lastly, I came across a mini binder-type Christmas planner which I wanted to do as well.  (No, I don't need 3 planners--I'll use one and give the others as gifts).  LOVE this one.

I laminated the "title" pages with my new Scotch Thermal Laminator that I love!  It's only $22 and it's fabulous!  Small but big enough to laminate up to 9" wide!
