holiday planner

So here is my holiday planner! Pretty, huh? Well, I think so ;) I should have taken a photo before I put it into the cover.... overlooked that... but it was a slow process to get it wedged in there so I didn't wanna take it back out to photograph :-/ Some of the last photos here I had to adjust the coloring to reduce the glare, but all in all it photographed OK!

And I'll be updating this to post links to the insides here too! I've even made them printables so you can grab a copy for yourself if you'd like! So here we go....

So this is the first of a few posts where I'll share my planner with you! I'll share the dividers and the charts and lists over the next week or two. Some things I'll post over on my {crafting blog} and leave a link on here for ya :) Anyhoo, on to the cover!

Started out with a binder I already had laying around. Love love LOVE my new PTI stamps, this is from their All Booked Up set. I'll have some more projects comin up soon using that set too, so keep an eye out ;) I love Christmas papers, and am always afraid of using them all up, so this was the perfect solution! I took scraps of some of my favorite papers and put them behind the planner label! Toped it off with some MS twine, Recollections gems, and another PTI stamp from their 2009 Holiday Tags. This planner is really for next year- it will run from Sept. through Dec. including Fall Harvest, Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Years holidays {so as you can see, it's a bit late to be using for this year!}. Actually, I'll be able to use some of my lists as we're hosting Christmas for our families, which I'm wicked excited about!! Fun projects to come, no doubt, so keep an eye out for those coming soon too!! So anyhoo, the gems and general decor for the album tries to combine both fall and Christmas colors,

Here's the binding of the album... used up some more scraps, oh! And the great hunter green paper is SU! The gold shimmer paper is Making Memories :)

Here's a perfect example of blending the two major holiday seasons- fall and winter. I tried to transition the fall leaf punches into the snowflake punches {both MS, by the way} and added in a few Recollections gold pearls- perfect for both fall and Christmas.

Here's a close up of the verse in the corner- from PTI's Silent Night. Everything comes from the Lord and so every season holds something to be thankful to Him for- thus I thought this a wholly appropriate quote for the planner :)

Well, that about wraps up this post- if you're still with me, thanks for comin along for the tour of my planner cover ;) hehe. I'll be sharing the insides soon, so stay tuned!!
