Christmas Mini Planner with Candi Billman

Hey everyone!  Excited to be back again to share with you a little Mini Christmas Book that I put together using the gorgeous Joyful Collection!  The colors in this collection are super PRETTY!

Warning…picture overload post 🙂

I grabbed a couple pieces of chipboard and trimmed down both pieces to 4 1/2″ x 6″…then took my single hole punch and punched out two holes.  I used some pink and teal acrylic paint and applied a little bit on the front cover with a couple of foam brushes.  After the paint dried (about 15 minutes), I added a few tags and some Joyful – Wood Veneers!  To hold all of my “pages” together, I am using two loose leaf rings.  I had these in my craft stash, but you could pick some up at your local office supply store!

Open up the cover and the first thing you see on the right is the back side of a pink envelope. I am going to use this envelope to store all of my Christmas gift receipts.  The next page is a place where I can write down gift ideas for my family and friends…

I added random tags along the way by punching a hole in the top left hand corner!  I am thinking of adding a few favorite photos too…!  Under the “ho ho ho” wood veneer there is a place to jot down a December Memory 🙂

The next several photos show you how I added more tags, embellishments and even a few more spots to add some journaling 🙂

Loving this “highlights” tag!!!  I added that cute snowman from the Holiday Acrylics and Joyful Wood Veneers!  Behind the “highlights” tag, there is another area to do some more writing!


Another lovely tag added from the Joyful – Journaling Tags

Once I get a photo of my family in front of our tree…I will print it out, punch a hole in the top left hand corner and insert it into my mini book…right here 🙂  I added the Family Wood Veneer and other little embellishments for the inside back cover!

I hope you enjoyed this little mini that will hold some of my December memories!!!
