Don't Make Me Text Santa Holiday Planners

These holiday planners are so easy to make and useful. You can re-use them each year. I got this idea from Melissa Stout.  She has a wonderful video tutorial on her blog. All you need is a school or office folder with pockets - without the brads in the center. Fold the center in the opposite direction, then fold the front flap over and the back flap in, like an accordian.
I cut a quarter of an inch off of the top of my folder since I was using a mat on the front out of an 8 1/2 x 11" piece of cardstock.  I used pieces of Letters to Santa designer series paper to decorate the inside.  Inside the third pocket I placed envelopes to hold receipts.  I just embellished them with a strip of leftover DSP. The calander, greeting card list and gift list were printed from Organized Christmas. I secured them to cardstock with a glimmer brad.

The front of the planner is embellished with a Santa which I stamped from a retired stamp set called, Jolly Old Saint Nick set. I used a Blush Blossom marker to color his face and accented his cheeks with a Blushing Bride marker. I added shimmer to his hat with a 2-Way Glue Pen and Dazzling Diamonds glitter. I used Microsoft Word for the sentiment, "Don't make me text Santa" and printed it out on Whisper White cardstock and punched it out with the oval punch. Happy Stamping!

Creating Pretty Cards - Cards Challenge 5

This month I designed the Creating Pretty Cards Sketch for Craft Project Central's Card Challenge #5 using My Digital Studio. There is also a tutorial for the sample card pictured above at Craft Project Central. I've had so many compliments on this card, that I used this idea to create a tag for my friend Jamie's Christmas Tag swap.
Then, I decided to modify this design for Stamp Club, where we will make a matching card and tag. I filled these globes with Stampin' Up's new Mica Flakes.
