Christmas in July - Holiday Planner

Thank you so much for joining me for my Holiday Planner project for Christmas in July hosted by Giselle from Cross My Heart Paper Crafts!

Warning: LOTS of photos, so here we go...

In the 1st pocket we have covered notebook for writing down your present list. I wanted it to be covered from peaking eyes. :) In the third pocket there is a receipt envelope. This is just a legal size envelope that was sealed and then I cut about 1.5 inches off one side so that it fits well in the planner.

In the 2nd pocket I made a folder to hold my return address labels, labels I printed from my Christmas card list, and stamps. That way when I am ready to send my Christmas cards I can grab this folder and everything is ready to go!

In the last pocket I have notebook paper and a calendar on the front to help keep track of events and errands. I stamped different Christmas sentiments on the paper to keep in the holiday theme. I did three of each stamps so there is a total of 21 papers.

I also added a loop pen holder on the side because I NEVER have a pen when I need one! LOL I attached a long ribbon on the back side of the planner to keep it tied neatly together so it can easily fit in a purse. The total size is 7.5" x 4.75"

Here is one more shot of the planner open and filled.

Want to know the biggest secret? IT'S MADE FROM A 2-POCKET SCHOOL FOLDER just like this one...

I cut it down to 7.5" high and then folded each side in half - TA-DA, a pocket planner! Now just cover with paper and embellishments. :)

Hope you enjoyed my holiday planner - thank you so much for stopping by! Remember to leave a message on my post HERE to be eligible to win a Scrappy Moms Stamps Winter Wishes stamp set.
